Here’s a twist. Underwear that always smells freshly washed. Huntsman Textiles has invented Invasan RCD, a finish added to fabric during its final processing. The goal is to give your clothes a longer "just washed fragrance."
Here’s how it works. Derived from sugar (so it’s environmentally green), RCD’s small capsules bond to cotton during fabric processing. The capsules get charged with the scent from your laundry detergent or fabric softener during the laundry process. As you wear the garment throughout the day, your body heat and moisture release the scent from these capsules. The result is that you smell fresher longer.
So here’s my question. What happens if a smelly wet fish gets in contact with your RCD treated t-shirt? Does the fish’s odor charge up inside these capsules and waft off you throughout the day? Can you ever get the odor out? Sounds to me like a few more answers are needed before this Invasan RCD fabric process will gain mass appeal.

Guys–we understand. You’d love to buy her something sexy and luxurious, but walking into a lingerie shop is right up there with getting a cavity drilled or singing "Feelings" at a karaoke party. Even a phone order is hard–how do you explain over the phone (without the use of hands) what size bra you think she wears? So, here’s the drill.It’s a a lot easier if you know her sizes. If you don’t, take a look in her lingerie drawer and check the label on a bra–the size should be right there–34B, 38DD, something like that. Panties are in sizes usually from XS through XXL. Sometimes they’re numerical, ranging from about 5-10. You might also take a peak at brand names– especially on items she wears all the time. If you see 3 Wacoal bras, for example, you can be pretty sure that’s a brand she loves.
Now you’ve got the critical info–what to buy? Well, if you see quite a few of the same brand, you can take it up a notch and choose a luxury item in that brand. For instance, if she buys herself mid-range Le Mystere bras like this racer-back bra, why not go all out and buy her this sexy, lacy confection from Le Mystere. Or, how about buying her something you know she won’t buy for herself? We all hear that thongs are the most comfortable panties ever–but some women won’t even try them. Let her try them out on your dime. She might especially like Hanky Panky’s Color Play Thong, which comes in an array of pretty exciting colors. Better yet, it’s one size fits most, so you can hardly go wrong.
If you absolutely can’t find her sizes, you’ve got a few choices: guess and hope for the best, ask her outright, or buy something not quite as dependent on fit, like a silk nightgown, or slinky robe. Luckily,we got some suggestions here too.This Mary Green Stretch Silk Satin Doll Chemise will make any woman feel gorgeous and the movie-star calibre matching robe will help through winter nights to come. If she’s more of an all-cotton woman, Hanro makes the softest, sleekest cotton sleepwear imaginable, like this Hanro Taitu Babydoll, Or one of Hanro’s beautiful cotton robes – like this Hanro Short Waffle Robe.
Of course you’d like something you want to see her in, but if it’s too gimmicky or plain uncomfortable she’ll wear it for you, but it won’t leave the drawer more than a few times a year. The key is to choose something that’ll let her know you think she’s special but will also be comfortable. Many women are so hung up about body image that they don’t realize that, to the men who love them, they are hot, hot, hot. So if you bought her a blender last year, this is the time to go all out and show her how she looks in your eyes.
