Claims

1. A bandroll for a waistband for a garment, the bandroll comprising:
a material formed by an absorption layer fused with a wicking layer, the material having stretch and recovery properties, wherein said wicking layer controls stretch and recovery of said absorption layer, and
wherein the wicking layer comprises a wicking fusible substrate, and
wherein the absorption layer comprises a material substrate having absorptive fibers, and
wherein the waistband comprises a second material and wherein a shrinkage of the material substrate substantially matches a shrinkage of the second material.
2. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the fusible substrate comprises a two-way fusible substrate.
3. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the wicking layer comprises wicking fibers.
4. The bandroll of claim 3, wherein the wicking fibers comprise polyester fibers.
5. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the wicking layer provides memory and/or performance to the bandroll.
6. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the absorptive fibers comprise one or more of: cotton fibers, hemp fibers, and bamboo fibers.
7. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein stretch properties of the absorption layer are due, at least in part, from the material substrate being compacted or being cut on a bias thereof and/or having mechanical stretch and/or comprising an elastic polyurethane fiber or fabric.
8. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the absorption layer comprises a material selected from a group comprising: cotton, poly-cotton, a compacted woven material, and a compacted knit material.
9. The bandroll of the preceding claim 8, wherein the absorption layer comprises 35% to 100% cotton.
10. The bandroll of claim 8, wherein the absorption layer comprises between 1% to 65% polyester.
11. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein at least a portion of the absorption layer is perforated.
12. The bandroll of claim 11, and wherein different portions of the absorption layer have different degrees of perforation.
13. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein at least a portion of the wicking layer is perforated.
14. The bandroll of claim 13, wherein at different portions of the wicking layer have different degrees of perforation.
15. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the bandroll is perforated.
16. The bandroll of claim 15, wherein different portions of the bandroll have different degrees of perforation.
17. The bandroll of claim 15, wherein perforations in the bandroll form and/or comprise one or more repeating patterns.
18. The bandroll of claim 17, wherein the repeating patterns comprise repeating logos and/or text.
19. (canceled)
20. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the waistband is a straight waistband or a curved waistband.
21. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the fusible substrate has shrinkage equal to shrinkage of the second material.
22. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the shrinkage of the material substrate is 2% to 15%, and the shrinkage of the second material is 2% to 15%.
23. The garment of claim 1, wherein the second material comprises a fabric that is the same as a fabric of the garment.
24. The garment of claim 1, wherein the second material is selected from a group comprising: a pant fabric, cotton, poly-cotton, linen, denim, a compacted woven material, and a compacted knit material.
25. The bandroll of claim 1, wherein the garment is selected from a group comprising: pants, shorts, overalls, and skirts.
26. A waistband comprising a bandroll according to claim 1.
27. The waistband of claim 26, wherein the waistband comprises a second material, and wherein the second material comprises an outer layer of the waistband and the bandroll comprises an inner layer of the waistband, and wherein an absorption layer of the bandroll faces away from the second material.
28. The waistband of claim 26, wherein the bandroll provides memory to the waistband.
29. A garment comprising a waistband according to claim 26.
30. The garment of claim 29, wherein the garment is selected from a group comprising: pants, shorts, overalls, and skirts.
