There are many styles of underwear available and many ways to customize it. Two primary elements of custom underwear can help to choose the best. The first is the quality of the underlying garment. The second is the quality of the printing or embroidery used to customize it. Both of these elements, in addition to the available options from a given manufacturer, are important in choosing the best custom underwear.
The quality of the underwear that will be customized should be one of the main considerations. Having a custom garment that does not last very long might not be worth the effort. In general, well constructed underwear can be made from cotton or a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers. Less common materials, such as silk or satin, also can be good choices for quality in custom underwear. Some manufacturers offer well known brands of underwear for customizing, and these brands may be a safer choice than an unknown brand.
The next consideration is the quality of the printing. Heat transfer patterns generated on ink printers tend not to stand up to repeated washing. Well done embroidery will usually last longer. One of the best methods is silk-screening a pattern onto cloth, because the dyes penetrate the fabric and do not wash out easily.
The abilities of the creators of the custom underwear also should be taken into account. Some manufacturers limit customization to simple letters or monograms. Others allow full-color illustrations or photographs to be printed. There are some that offer three-dimensional additions such as ribbons or rhinestones. One should be certain to look at the work the company has done previously and ensure that the desired custom garment can be created.
When trying to choose the best custom underwear, one may check to see if the company carries the brand or style he or she normally wears. Some companies offer only one or two types of underwear and might not even give a customer the option of choosing the type. It is important to know exactly what is being ordered from the start.
When choosing the design for custom underwear, one should be aware of who will be wearing the underwear and who might be seeing it. If giving the underwear as a gift, one should make sure that any designs intended to be fun or funny will indeed be humorous to the gift recipient. The custom designs or words also should reflect the personality of the person who will be wearing it. The best custom underwear is a fun piece of clothing that can be used and enjoyed and still last for some time.
