Abstract

The invention relates to cushioning means [10] particularly suitable for use as a lining material in a garment [18]. The cushioning means [10] is designed to conform to the anatomical profile of a user and is characterized therein that it comprises at least one layer of closed-cell foam [12], and a plurality of breather apertures [14] extending through the cushioning means [10] for permitting through-flow of air through the closed-cell foam layer [12] and for accommodating displacement of the foam [12] under a compression force. The cushioning means [10] is further characterized therein that crease line formation within and cushioning characteristics of the cushioning means [10] are changeable by altering location of the breather apertures [14] within the cushioning means [10]. The invention also extends to a garment, and particularly a sports garment such as cycling pants, including such cushioning means [10], which is attached to the garment such that it generally covers the buttocks region, the perineal region between the legs and the lower pelvic region in use.
