LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ Fiber Makes a Splash at MarediModa Virtual Swimwear Show

Nov 18, 2020

The LYCRA Company is supporting the first-ever virtual MarediModa tradeshow dedicated to swimwear.

The company is showcasing its rich heritage in swimwear during the digital event, which runs through April 2021, with a focus on LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber. The technology protects swimwear from chlorine, sun, heat, sunscreen and other harsh elements – which can quickly degrade fabrics – to deliver unparalleled garment durability, comfort/fit retention and overall wear life.

Fabric mills, manufacturers and designers rely on LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber, which stands up to chlorinated water environments that cause fit loss and fiber breakage, lasting up to 10 times longer than unprotected spandex and twice as long as regular chlorine-durable fiber.

LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber recently was featured in the 2021 edition of the Swimwear Yearbook, the industry’s go-to resource for seasonal style forecasts, design trends, technology innovations and more published by UK-based Underlines Magazine. Read the full article.
