This paper illustrates the design and competence investigation of a novel conformal super wide band (SWB) wearable textile antenna. The design of this flexible antenna is employed on a material named Dacron fabric whose substrate permittivity is 3. This antenna occupies a bandwidth of almost 35 GHz and ranges between frequencies from 1.76 GHz to 36.80 GHz. The designed antenna is bended at different angles to study its conformal nature in terms of return loss and radiation characteristics.
