Amp Up Your Sportswear Business with LYCRA® SPORT Technology!

Aug 03, 2017

What’s the best way to meet consumer expectations in the highly competitive active outdoor market? As Best Pacific  demonstrated at the last Performance Days show, create fabrics using LYCRA® SPORT technology . Fabrics are scientifically engineered to deliver exceptional comfort, fit and support to stretch activewear, and so much more!

Customizable Performance

LYCRA® SPORT technology’s patented PCE™ index rates a fabric’s Power, Comfort and Energy levels on a simplified scale of 1-10 for each attribute. What does this level of customization mean for members of the value chain? 
  • It allows brands and retailers to specify the optimum level of compression and comfort they require to meet a consumer’s garment performance needs for any sport.
  • It helps reduce time and cost associated to fabric sourcing, in turn speeding route to market.

Harness LYCRA® Brand Power

LYCRA® brand has the highest consumer awareness of any branded fiber or fabric, and its logo is viewed as a symbol of quality assurance by many consumers. One of the key benefits of choosing LYCRA® SPORT technology for your collections is that the fabric has already been tested and certified. This means you enjoy more efficient time to market and have fast access to free LYCRA® SPORT brand hangtags that are designed to help drive garment sell-through in stores.
