dc.description.abstractNarrow fabric elastic tapes are essential components in intimate apparel to provide support, hold the garment in the right position, create a finished edge, and give aesthetic effects. Applications include bra straps, elastic bands, foldover elastics, and wire channels. They can be produced by either weaving or warp knitting. Warp-knitted elastic tapes are also called crochet elastic tapes. Woven elastic tapes are usually smoother, finer, and flatter than crochet elastic tapes. Elongation, modulus, durability, handfeel, and aesthetics are the key criteria in the selection of narrow fabric elastic tapes for intimate apparel. In this chapter, the development of narrow fabric elastic tapes is discussed in terms of their functional and aesthetic aspects. The purpose of this chapter is to provide additional information for designers in their search for narrow fabric elastic tape and give them the means to incorporate these resources into their designs.en_US
