Heated clothing is an indispensable warming item for many people in cold winter, but this "winter basic style" that almost everyone owns actually surprises many because they "wear it wrong." Is earth "getting colder and colder"?
Heated clothing is an indispensable item for many people who go to cold regions in winter. Recently, a Japanese variety show invited HEATTECH R&D team of famous Japanese fast fashion brand UNIQLO to personally explain principle of heat generation, and unexpectedly found that many seemingly ordinary phrases actually significantly reduced original heat preservation function. .
HEATTECH R&D Group Director Masami Nakano said that principle of clothing heating comes from "water": human body naturally releases about 800ml of water vapor every day, and heating clothing uses a special fiber design to trap water. from body The steam is converted into heat energy to keep warm.
#Wear an inner layer under heated clothing? NG! Many people will opt for multiple layers of "onion bandage" in winter, but if you wear an extra layer under heated clothing, it may not be "heat efficient"! Because it will prevent body water vapor from being absorbed by fibers of heated clothing, which will affect heat preservation effect of heated clothing. Experts suggest that direct skin contact is most appropriate way to wear.
# Increase size? NG! Many people are accustomed to wearing plus size clothes or go up a size to feel more comfortable. However, based on same principle as above, if you wear oversized heating clothing, it may reduce heat retention effect because it does not adhere well to skin.
#Wearing warm clothes for sports? NG! Warm clothes that seem to be able to warm up before a workout "get twice result with half effort", in fact, are not suitable for wearing in training. Although sweat and water vapor are sources of heat, due to large amount of sweat during exercise, the fibers can absorb moisture and cannot be quickly wicked away, resulting in excessive moisture absorption by clothing fibers, which will instead bring "more and more cold" . "...reverse effect.
