This paper presents a novel design of a wearable tapered slot Vivaldi antenna. The operating frequency of design is between 300MHz and 8 GHz. Jeans Cotton fabric with pure 100% Cotton has been used as the substrate with dielectric constant 1.56, while the radiating element patch and ground plane are made up of aluminum as conducting material. The analysis of the structures are carried out using CST Microwave Studio. Simulated results in terms of return loss, bandwidth, radiation pattern, current distribution as well as gain and efficiency are presented to validate the usefulness of the proposed design and different bending conditions are presented in this paper.
