How many types of swimsuit fabrics?
Generally, there are three basic types of swimsuit fabrics: Dubai Lycra, nylon and polyester, which are also the most common types on the market. Yingfeng Textile will introduce to you:
1. Nylon fabrics-fabrics obtained by blending or interweaving nylon filaments or short fibers with other fibers, which have the characteristics and strengths of each fiber. Although the texture is not as strong and solid as Lycra fabric, its elasticity and softness are comparable to Lycra. It is currently the most commonly used swimwear fabric, suitable for mid-priced products.
2. Polyester fabric—Polyester fabric is a chemical fiber garment fabric used in daily life. Its biggest advantage is that it has good wrinkle resistance and shape retention. Therefore, it is suitable for wearing in the sun.
3. DuPont Lycra is a man-made elastic fiber with the best elasticity. It can be stretched 4 to 7 times freely. After the external force is released, it quickly restores its original length with excellent stretch. It is suitable for blending with various fibers to enhance texture drape and wrinkle resistance. DuPont Lycra with chlorine-resistant ingredients will make swimming no longer longer than ordinary swimsuits.
How to choose swimsuit fabrics?
Yingfeng Textile gives some advice from a professional point of view: When buying a swimsuit, you can touch it with your hands, or refer to the ingredient content table of the material to see how the material is. A good swimsuit fabric is soft and elastic, the fabric is relatively dense, and the cut is exquisite. The sewing adopts elastic thread, which will not break the thread due to movement. When trying on, follow the principle of fit and comfort. If it is too large, it will increase the burden on the body and the resistance during swimming. If it is too small, it will easily cause strangulation on the limbs and cause poor blood flow.
