First, women love knitwear because it stretches. A knitted dress can be more form-fitting without the need for a belt, thus making it comfortable and casual without looking baggy and shapeless. The stretchiness of knitted fabrics gives them an excellent drape so knitwear is flattering to all figure types. This alone is a reason to fill your closet with clothing made from kitted materials so whatever you put on, you’ll look great.
The second reason why women love knitwear is that the fabric can have a variety of textures depending on the knit. From wool to acrylic to cotton, there’s a fabric and texture of knitwear for everyone. Most designers incorporate knitwear into their lines. DKNY Jeans have great looking knitted sweaters as does Hilfiger Jeans and Ralph Lauren. Miss Sixty uses the knitwear’s drapability to make a flattering, flowing poncho style pullover that’s ultra comfortable.
The third reason women love knitwear is because it is so comfortable. Any type of garment can be made of knitted material so there’s no reason to have uncomfortable clothing. Even form fitting garments that contour to the body’s silhouette won’t restrict movement. Women can wear stylish clothing to work or at home all day, never worrying about their clothing not being functional. This all day comfort is the reason why maternity knitwear is very popular.
