Cotton is a type of soft, breathable fabric made from fibers of the cotton plant. It is the most widely used natural-fiber cloth in clothing today. It is used for practically all kind of clothing: t-shirts, trousers, dresses, skirts, underwear, etc.

Cotton can also be used in rope-making and for whips. Cotton wool can be used for padding, e.g. cushions.

Cotton and fetishism

Vintage open drawers.

In the BDSM scene there is a running gag that if a person comes in "normal" clothing to a BDSM club or BDSM party which has a fetish clothing dresscode, they claim to "have a cotton fetish".

In the spanking scene, there is in fact such a thing: many spankos cherish the "domestic" look and feel, rather than the stereotypic BDSM-style (black leather, latex and harnesses), and often have a preference for "mainstream" clothing made from simple cotton, such as schoolgirl uniforms and white cotton underwear, especially if such a garment looks traditional (vintage, old-fashioned).

However if a real vintage look and feel is desired, linen might be the material of choice.
