Abstract: In recent years of electronics industrialization, antennas are more popular components; wearable antennas play an important role due to their properties such as wireless communication and miniaturization. The design of wearable antennas have distinction in the area of antenna design and development, in this paper a thorough study had been carried out wearable antennas blended with textile, which has significant dielectric constant. This work describes the design a textile antenna, namely, a rectangular microstrip patch antenna and then rectangular with U-slot antenna with slits. After designing two kinds of antennas, a comparison will be made between their results. Conductive textile, a copper-plated polyester fabric, will be used for fabricating antenna radiators and grounds. An insulating denim fabric with dielectric constant 1.7 with a thickness of 0.7 is used for preparing the substrates. The proposed antenna is designed and all the results will calculated using Ansoft HFSS Software. After evaluating the results of a rectangular microstrip antenna and U-slot Antenna on textile substrate, the rectangular patch resonate at 2.5 GHz with the return loss of -16.86dB and the U-slot Antenna resonated at 2.2 GHz with return loss of -41.68dB and 3.9 GHz return loss of -16.16dB.
