Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The work described in this paper investigated the effects of two types of clothing, leaving the legs covered or uncovered, on seasonal cold acclimation in women. Experiments were carried out to observe the different thermal physiological responses between two groups of subjects, who dressed themselves in knee-length skirts or trousers during the daytime for 3 months from September to November. It was found that rectal temperatures and heart rates in the subjects wearing skirts were shifted to lower levels when the season gradually became colder. The results suggest that the clothing type worn in daily life may play a potential role in seasonal cold acclimation of thermal physiological responses in man.
