Cotton fabric(s) for active wear

I like to make my own active wear using a comfortable & flexible cotton fabric(s).  I have a debilitated autoimmune disease where my skin is sensitive to regular tight fitting sport & active wear like Lulu Lemon, Nike or other major brands. It actually hurt and cause uncomfortness during a workout.  I love cotton clothing that are breathable and flexible enough for my very active life.  Please advice, thank you.

    Hi Bidget,
    Cotton jersey knit is probably your best bet. You might try rayon though or bamboo. Remembser to find a jersey knit it will have a stretch to it and make sure it is 100%. Most blends will have lycra or poly in them. Coton won’t have the recovery that spandex has but at least you will feel more comfortable in it.
    Hope that helps.
