The performance of a dual-band textile antenna under two-dimensional crumpling conditions is described. Both input impedance and radiation patterns are investigated based on numerical and experimental methods at 2.45 and 5.8 GHz. The return loss for the coplanar antenna is affected by the most severe crumpling at the higher frequency band, while the radiation patterns remain acceptable at both bands.
