In this paper, the performance of a wearable dual-band dual-polarization button antenna under various wearing scenarios is investigated. For this purpose, variations of reflection coefficients, axial ratio and radiation patterns are assessed through simulation and measurement. More specifically, simulations about the orientation of the antenna button shaft and the curvature of the ground plane are presented to investigate how our proposed button antenna withstands geometrical variations associated with typical wearing scenarios. Measured results confirm that the antenna is generally robust in different tested conditions, for which the two operating modes are shown to operate without significant performance deterioration.
