Polyester: Friend or Foe?

It dominated the Lanvin, Nina Ricci, and Narcisco Rodriguez runways . . .

I also have eczema but polyester doesn't irritate my skin. I agree that polyester is great because it doesn't wrinkle. Wool and cashmere though...itchy! It's really too bad though because I would love to buy a classic cashmere sweater.

I don't mind polyester. The only problem I have with it is I become hot while wearing it.

the worst thing @ polyester is that it makes you hot when it is hot and offers no warmth when it is cold...

Like Aimee said, a blend is okay. But that's it for me.

My skin doesn't like it either... And I don't like the touch of it, nor the look of the fabric. I don't like how it looks on me, very unforgiving for my curvy body. Natural fibers are the best for me: cotton, silk,...

A blend is fine...

Maybe a polyester blend not 100% polyester. Polyester is the worst material to wear in the summertime!

I can't wear it at all. It irratates my skin b/c I have really bad eczema. :( But, I would wear it if I could.
