LYCRA® is a synthetic elastane fiber that can stretch up to six times its length and return to its original state – time and again. LYCRA® fibers have redefined comfort, fit, freedom of movement and shape retention in virtually every garment category since its first use as a substitute for rubber over 50 years ago.
LYCRA® fibers are a versatile, invisible ingredient that improves the characteristics of natural and man-made host fabrics. They have fundamentally transformed close-to-the-body garment categories such as swimwear, hosiery and intimate apparel. They enhance the drape, shape, comfort and appearance of outerwear. And they have played a key part in the development of entirely new active and performance sportswear concepts.
