Whatever the category—athleisure, sports or casual fashion—this technology enables you to create stylish leggings that deliver the lasting performance curvy women desire. LYCRA® XCEPTIONELLE technology is the solution to satisfying her needs while maximizing your profits.
Inside the Technology
LYCRA® XCEPTIONELLE technology combines special garment construction and LYCRA® SOFT COMFORT technology (T902C fiber), to provide a better, more consistent fit across a range of body shapes. This patented innovation delivers exceptional overall comfort and a flexible fit that is ideal for fitting in-between sizes without digging in or restricting the wearer’s movement.
Benefits for mills

• Achieve maximum width (without any added panel up to size 18 – US size or 48 – European size) by using 902C fiber for greater stretch and a combination of knitting and finishing techniques
• Eliminating the sewn-in panel saves money and makes a more comfortable, attractive garment
• Allows for greater design and knitted patterns in the body part
