What Is Lycra Fabric?

Lycra is a registered trademark of polyurethane synthetic fibers, also known as spandex or elastane. DuPont first developed Lycra in 1958 to replace latex rubber as a stretcher in clothing. Its strength and durability are also very popular. Although you may think of shiny tights and bicycle shorts when you think of Lycra, elastic fabrics are found in many garments.


Lycra Uses

Lycra is almost always mixed with another fabric - even the tightest tights and swimsuits are not as much as 40% Lycra blended with cotton or polyester. Because of its ability to shape the body, Lycra is ideal for compression garments, surgical stockings, swimwear and sportswear. It is also used to add stretch to jeans, tops, dresses and even sheets.
