We investigated the effects of adhesive interlining on wearing and moving comfort and garment pressure exerted on the body. Scheffe’s paired comparison test was performed for sensory evaluation of four jackets of the same pattern: one without interlining and three with different adhesive interlinings (soft; normal; hard). The bonded fabrics have different shear and bending rigidities. Nineteen subjects performed a series of postures and movements while wearing the jackets: (1) standing; (2) moving arms forward; (3) raising arms overhead; and (4) moving arms horizontally to the side. They compared wearing and moving comfort; and the feeling of garment pressure on designated parts of the body on a seven-point scale. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences in preference scores between jacket types. A jacket with lower stiffness was evaluated as more comfortable and as placing less pressure on the body. There were significant differences in wearing comfort between jackets even when subjects were standing. We conclude that adhesive interlinings affect wearing and moving comfort of jackets and the pressure exerted by a jacket on the body; especially in the shoulder; back; forearm; under the arm and bust areas. The use of lower-rigidity interlining; especially for the shoulder; back; under the arm and bust; will result in a more comfortable jacket; although the interlining must be sufficiently rigid to maintain the desired shape and appearance of the jacket.
