LYCRA® FitSense™ technology is a revolutionary innovation from The LYCRA Company that transforms garments by adding lightweight, brushed on power exactly where it’s needed. This technology is a patented water-based dispersion that is solvent free and includes the same molecule as LYCRA® fiber. The dispersion is screen printed directly onto the inside or outside of fabric made with LYCRA® fiber, which results in targeted modulus and recovery power. This enables the use of lightweight fabrics to create apparel that delivers on consumer needs.
Consumers Prefer LYCRA® FitSense™ Technology
In consumer research, garments made with LYCRA® FitSense™ technology outperformed garments made without it, and showed a significant increase in preference and purchase intent. Consumers also indicated they’re willing to pay a premium price for highly functional, ultra-comfortable garments that will enhance their active lifestyle and meet all of their needs.
