ATHLETA Brand’s 2016 Swimwear Collection Highlights LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ Fiber

Did you know that approximately 90% of ATHLETA bathing suits contain LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber?  Our unique fiber provides the comfort, shape retention and freedom of movement you expect from the makers of LYCRA® fiber. The added benefit of LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber is that it resists fading and fiber breakage caused by chlorine, lotion and UV rays, and lasts up to ten times longer than regular spandex or elastane.

Visit your nearest ATHLETA store, or shop online for your next swimsuit with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber. You can mix and match tops in thousands of combinations to find the suit that’s perfect for you. Garments containing LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber are identified with branded hangtags in stores and are featured in the mail order catalog (pictured), or search for the fiber by name at ATHLETA.com.
