  • Sadly, it may be due to the fabric and possibly mean there is no fix. There are a couple of suggestions already made that may be worth trying, just to be sure

  • I use fabric conditioner in the final rinse and it stops static.

  • A professional dressmaker told me that it can be from different types of fabric coming into contact with others.

  • I used to work at Suzanne Grae. They sell an excellent anti static spray. Works like a charm. I think you can also get it from supermarkets.

  • When you put them in the dryer, there’s plastic/rubber ball things you can throw in with them to stop the static. Not 100% sure it works for when you’re wearing them as well though. Worth a shot though

  • there is a static spray you can buy from the supermarket.

  • You don’t say whether you put them in a dryer or not? If you do … don’t .. try drip drying. If all else fails you can spray hairspray on them.

  • Anti-Static spray! It works wonders :-)

  • Avoid putting clothes in the dryer. Or you can get a static spray from most supermarkets.

  • Get a metal clothes hanger, and run it over your clothes either just before you put them on, or just after you put them on. Guaranteed to get rid of static and that awful clingy look. Also, apply a moisturizing lotion on your body where the fabric clings, and hey presto, no clinging!

  • I use static spray from the supermarket. Avoid putting clothes in the dryer as well.

  • dont put them in the dryer

  • there are some good comments here

  • OMG this happens with one of my new dresses. Thanks for asking!

  • Ive also hear that hairspray works although i have not tried it.
