Since its invention nearly sixty years ago, LYCRA® fiber set the standard as the world’s best-known elastane fiber brand. Lightweight and nearly invisible, LYCRA® fiber became the active ingredient in our clothes and revolutionized the way we wore them.





Whenever it’s used in fabrics, LYCRA® fiber transforms garments into better fitting, durable clothes that move with our bodies, delivering fit, shape and comfort that lasts. Day after day. Wash after wash. Run after run. Swim after swim.

As a fiber technology brand, innovation has always been at the core of the LYCRA® brand. The LYCRA® team is continually developing our portfolio of products to provide lasting performance and support wherever you need it, whether that’s on a run in the park or a night out on the town. That’s why today you’ll find there’s a versatile range of LYCRA® fibers inside everything from cycling apparel to swimwear, denim to hosiery, sneakers to suits, haute couture to socks.
