LDS Church offers new stretch cotton women's garments
(KUTV) - As of Wednesday, endowed women in the U.S. and Canada may place pre-orders for new stretch cotton garments offered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Church announced the availability of the new temple garment style, February 20, 2018, and will be available worldwide by the end of 2018.
The LDS garment, also referred to simply as garments, is a two-piece sacred underclothing that members wear who have taken part in a temple endowment ceremony.
Stretch cotton fabric is 95 percent cotton and 5 percent spandex, which makes the garment more comfortable for a variety of body types and climates around the world, the Church announcement said.
In addition to the new material, the garments themselves have been redesigned to be a closer fit for increased comfort and better accommodate women with average to full busts and lower or natural waists.
“The design of the new Stretch Cotton garment is a direct response to customer feedback, and has been tested with more than 1,000 women around the world,” stated Angie White, garment product manager, in the Church News . “We’ve tried to address common concerns while enhancing features that sisters have requested.”
Pre-orders for the new garments can be done at a Distribution Services retail store, including Deseret Book stores with a Distribution Services section, or at store.lds.org/garments, or by calling Customer Support at 800.537.5971.
