It is important to remember that your wardrobe should keep pace with your perpetually changing lifestyle and needs. Let's face it, we all must cope with issues of dressing twice daily, 365 days a year. Why not make this a pleasant and effortless task? Here are just a few helpful hints to make your life that much more enjoyable.
Throw away that iron! With the growing demands of our daily routines who has the time, energy or money to spend on ironing and dry cleaning? Choose fabrics with a high level of washability. These are fabrics that resist shrinkage in everyday washing such as polyester or a combination of polyester. When choosing a cotton garment make sure that it is 50% polyester / 50% cotton or 65% polyester / 35% cotton blend. The garment will then not require ironing and will have a low shrinkage factor.
Fabrics should contain less than a 30% rayon, silk, linen or wool content.

Key words to look for when purchasing garments with high levels of elasticity are:
