XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fiber for Swimwear

Beautiful, longer-lasting, better fit

XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fiber is the new standard in swimwear, delivering beautiful, long-lasting fit that counters the curse of ‘bag and sag’.

As well as addressing common problems in swimwear quality, such as thinning material and shape loss, one key area where XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fiber makes a notable difference to performance and lifespan is in combating the effects of chlorine. Swimming pool chemicals rapidly deteriorate fibers and fabrics, affecting the longevity of swimwear, but XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fiber resists chlorine and other pool chemicals 5–10 times longer than unprotected elastane, allowing garments to keep their shape.

Swimwear manufacturers have been quick to incorporate XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fiber into their swimwear products, appreciative of the fact that it makes materials incredibly comfortable, and unbelievably supportive: it produces a flattering look without sacrificing anything in comfort.

INVISTA promotes co-brand ranges with marketing support that include hangtags, labelling, retail programs and PR campaigns, helping to communicate the benefits of this incredible innovation from INVISTA.

Now, with XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fiber, every woman can enjoy swimsuits with the very best fit, without fear that the beautiful swimwear she loves has lost its shape.

XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fiber care instructions
