What is Micromodal? Your Top Questions Answered about Micromodal vs Cotton Clothes

December 14, 2019 3 min read

What is micromodal

Long gone are the days of Dad’s cotton undershirts and tightie-whitie briefs. Luckily, men now have options beyond bulky cotton undergarments. One of the new “go to” fabrics used in a premium underwear and loungewear is micromodal. It is highly revered for its silky texture, durability and breathability.

In this article we discuss the composition of micro modal and its most desirable properties. We also examine how it fares in the contest of micromodal vs cotton.

What is micromodal made of?

Micromodal fabric starts with a base of rayon, which is comprised of cellulose extracted from sustainable beech trees. The cellulose is then treated, spun into yarn, and used to make fabric. The fine fibers are tightly woven when making the fabric, resulting in a soft and silk-like texture. This luxurious texture makes micromodal an ideal fabric for undergarments and clothing worn close to the skin.

How do you care for micromodal?

Don’t let its silky texture fool you. Micromodal fabric is extremely durable and colorfast; and it’s sturdy enough to machine wash and dry. Micromodal maintains its shape and resists pilling, even after multiple washes.

Is micromodal breathable?

Breathable fabrics allow moisture and air to pass through it and micro modal does this in spades. This lightweight, breathable fabric wicks away moisture from the skin. It draws moisture off the surface of your skin, up through the material and to the surface. From there, it dissipates into the air. Even when blended with a synthetic fiber like Spandex, micromodal maintains its breathability while allowing for superb range of motion.

How do micromodal undergarments rate?

There are many practical uses for micromodal fabric, ranging from bedsheets to sportswear. It is also one of the most trending fabrics used to make underwear. Micromodal is lightweight and feels luxurious next to the skin. And because it’s breathable, this fabric doesn’t trap heat, perspiration or odor.

Micromodal vs Cotton

Micromodal and cotton fabrics both have their positive attributes. However, if you are a sweaty or active person, you may find more cooling comfort when wearing micromodal. It is two times softer and 50% more water-absorbent than cotton.
Unlike the moisture-wicking properties of micromodal, cotton absorbs moisture and holds on to it. This can make a sweaty situation really uncomfortable when wearing a 100% cotton garment.

Cotton is durable like micromodal, but it will wrinkle and shrink if not laundered in cold water and damp-dried on low. Oftentimes, in the case of undergarments, those made from cotton tend to bunch up and lose their shape.

No one expects you to give up all your cotton underwear. But you may want to try out a specialized micromodal undergarment to see what the hype is all about. We recommend an Ejis micromodal undershirt or pair of boxer briefs. With added Spandex, Ejis micro modal undergarments conform to your body without restriction. The super-soft micromodal blend is then infused with silver particles to help fight odor. Experience extreme comfort and wearable confidence!
