LYCRA Introduces LYCRA® ADAPTIV Fiber Allowing for Better Wearing Experience

The LYCRA Company introduced last week, the LYCRA® ADAPTIV fiber, allowing garments to have a better fit for various lifestyles, movements and different body types. Made from a revolutionary polymer, this patent-pending, adaptive fiber has a unique chemistry that allows it to adjust to a wearer’s functional needs in a hybrid manner. This means that when the wearer is at rest, the polymer adapts its compressive holding force to deliver the right fit, shape and control.

And when the wearer is in motion, the polymer adapts its elasticity to deliver improved comfort in motion and a second-skin effect allowing the garment to stay in place better. The company notes that garments made with the fiber are durable and are also easier to put on and take off.
