Shapewear is closely associated with self-image. Every woman, regardless of age and body type, is conscious of both the emotional and practical benefits of smoothing, sculpting, garments. LYCRA® fibers enhance the look-good, feel-good factor.

To give women what they most desire, a smoothing sculpting effect that offers comfort, style and self-confidence, we now offer a new generation of fabrics with LYCRA® SHAPING technology. The science behind the use of LYCRA® fiber in shapewear is complex: New technology enables the precise measurement of the ingredient fibers' performance characteristics needed to optimise shaping action and comfort in specialist fabrics.

LYCRA® SHAPING technology is the ideal combination of shaping action and maximum comfort for the perfect figure.
