VIDEO: LYCRA® FitSense™ Technology Gives Leggings a Leg Up

Feb 02, 2021

Leggings are no longer reserved for workout wardrobes or the loungewear drawer. The versatile garments are staples of all-day, everyday attire for just about every occasion and location – from the home office, to the store, to the gym, to the couch.

In many cases, however, comfort comes at the cost of functionality. Or vice versa. Women want their leggings to stay up, provide support and shaping – and, of course, look and feel great.

LYCRA® FitSense™ technology helps provide these consumer-driven benefits by delivering lightweight, targeted support where it’s needed most via a proprietary water-based dispersion screen-printed onto fabrics made with LYCRA® fiber. This breakthrough innovation provides an added power boost to select areas eliminating the need for additional layers, seams or materials. As a result, leggings and other garments can feel virtually weightless and less restrictive.

The liquid dispersion can be applied to the inside or outside of a garment in various colors and custom patterns – providing additional holding power, shape retention and stability.
