The garment pressure comfort sensation was studied in the paper. The garment pressure comfort threshold was defined and calculated according to staircase method of psychophysics. In experiment, 10 subjects were employed in sensory tests and pressure measurements. A novel stretchable compressive belt was designed and developed, which was used to control the pressure applied on separate body parts by its extension and intention, and the subjects judgment and pressure monitor were recorded in times. Finally, the comfort thresholds at 13 separate body parts were investigated. This study provided proper comfort pressure range to human body for developing compression wear.
