The LYCRA Company, a global leader in developing innovative solutions for the apparel industry, and DNM DENIM, a leading Turkish denim producer, have partnered to bring the next level of performance and aesthetics to the denim market.

DNM DENIM’s revolutionary new fabric collection “Shaped’N Relaxed” brings together LYCRA® BEAUTY technology and LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology to offer consumers customized shaping as well as increased fit forgiveness and comfort, all in one fabric.

The Shaped’N Relaxed fabrics are woven with an open structure which gives a very gentle soft stretch, suiting a broad fit window due to the use of LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology, but at the same time provides the exceptional shaping properties of LYCRA® BEAUTY. Its two opposing forces come together in a fabric that is extra comfortable, with lower pressure shaping, offering the wearer the best of both worlds.


“We are always looking for ways to improve the performance of denim fabric and thanks to this smart collaboration with The LYCRA Company, we can now offer our customers a new generation stretch fabric, with a unique set of technologies that can provide stretch and extra support to areas where it is needed,”

Gokhan Unsal

Deputy General Manager

The collection offers gradient levels of stretch and fit, detailed for each fabric on a comfort map and developed after rigorous testing by The LYCRA Company. This helps designers to choose the perfect fabric for their garment needs, which, in turn, not only helps to avoid costly mistakes but can also help to create differentiation and prominence on the shelf. Ultimately, offering a product with just the right level of shaping power and comfort stretch for the design, also results in a more satisfied consumer.

The Shaped’N Relaxed fabrics from DNM DENIM are available in four colors.
