Why choose LYCRA® FitSense technology?

‎The challenge:

Comfort is critical when it comes to body-hugging apparel. But many garment makers, designers, brands, and retailers have struggled to create apparel that fits like a second skin, provides shaping and lift, and even nipple coverage, without compromising on comfort, breathability and durability.

The solution:

LYCRA® FitSense™ technology is a patented water-based dispersion that includes the same molecule as LYCRA® fiber. The liquid is screen printed directly onto garments made with LYCRA® fiber, which eliminates the need for heavy fabrics or sewn-in panels. Now you can use lightweight, breathable fabrics to create apparel that meets the consumer's need for comfortable, targeted support.
