                Lycra is a type of synthetic fabric that is very elastic. It is also called Spandex or elastane. The name spandex is an anagram of the word expands because of its elasticity and strength, lycra is often used to make clothing. There are also knit fabrics which stretch due to the production method – looping. Stretch fabric simplifies sewing, as it is a figure-flattering material. Lycra (elastane or spandex) increases the wear resistance of the product; at the same time, it does not neutralise the advantages of other materials. For example, stretch cotton cloth preserves all the positive properties of cotton fabric: breathability, water-absorbing function, hypoallergenicity. Stretch fabrics are perfect for women clothes, sportswear, stage outfits, underwear, and home textiles.
