SGS launches a range of test­ing and ad­vi­sory ser­vices to help man­u­fac­tur­ers of ath­leisure wear un­der­stand the com­fort char­ac­ter­is­tics of their prod­ucts. It has launched a com­pre­hen­sive range of ser­vices to help de­fine and assess com­fort in ath­leisure wear. Ser­vices in­clude test­ing and ad­vi­sory ser­vice for tex­tile and footwear com­pa­nies against cri­te­ria re­lat­ing to com­fort, per­for­mance and func­tion.

Ath­leisure is the lat­est trend in ap­parel. It in­cor­po­rates a new level of in­no­va­tion, us­ing high-tech fibers, ma­te­ri­als and fin­ish­ing, to cre­ate prod­ucts that are func­tional and fash­ion­able. With con­sumers no longer will­ing to change their out­fits mul­ti­ple times in the day, ath­leisure wear must ef­fec­tively per­form the func­tions of many dif­fer­ent types of ap­parel and re­main com­fort­able at all times. This one type of out­fit must be ca­pa­ble of mov­ing seam­lessly from the yoga class to the of­fice.

Com­fort is a mat­ter of per­sonal per­cep­tion. It is there­fore up to the tex­tile and ap­parel in­dus­try to de­fine a com­mon stan­dard for com­fort to ful­fill the needs of the con­sumer. To cre­ate a stan­dard­ized con­cept of com­fort in re­la­tion to ath­leisure wear, SGS’S new ser­vice has de­fined com­fort in terms of ther­moreg­u­la­tion, skin sen­sa­tion, body move­ment and psy­cho­log­i­cal com­fort.

Us­ing its global net­work of state-ofthe-art wear com­fort test­ing fa­cil­i­ties and ex­per­tise, SGS ex­perts can test fab­ric, fab­ric sys­tems and fin­ished gar­ments and assess the var­i­ous as­pects of cloth­ing per­for­mance that af­fect wear com­fort. In ad­di­tion to these test­ing ser­vices, SGS also of­fers a range of tech­ni­cal ad­vi­sory ser­vices to help brands and sup­ply chain op­er­a­tives op­ti­mize their per­for­mance and en­sure their prod­ucts are safe and com­pli­ant with rel­e­vant reg­u­la­tions.
