← Back to: List of phobias


Vestiphobia (from Latin vestis, meaning clothing, garment or covering) is the fear of clothing. The fear can lead to claustrophobia, fear of no escape, especially when wearing tight clothing. It can also be triggered by the fear of nudity. People who are allergic to fabric in clothing can also lead to fear. Vestiphobes may want to ever wear oversized, loose clothing, or no clothing at all, leaving them naked.
