LYCRA fiber for Athleisure

What began as an organic, consumer-driven trend is now a lifestyle being adopted by women around the world. Athleisure is the fashion response to this healthier consumer attitude. Its broad appeal means that almost everyone is a potential athleisure consumer. The athleisure consumer transitions from low to high impact activities: rushing to the bus, relaxing at home, going out with friends, or working out at the gym. She needs versatile performance apparel she can depend on to keep her feeling comfortable and confident throughout her day. Apparel made with LYCRA® fiber innovations help her do just that.
