Understanding the Science of Lure Menswear's Stretchy Fabrics
Lure Menswear has always been known for its high-quality, stretchy fabrics that offer comfort and support to all men, regardless of body type or size. Our custom blend of 95% cotton and 5% elastane has been carefully developed to provide the perfect balance of stretch, durability, and softness. In this blog post, we’ll dive deeper into the science behind our fabrics, why they work so well, and what makes them unique to Lure Menswear.
Cotton is a popular fabric for underwear because it is soft, breathable, and absorbent. However, 100% cotton underwear can sometimes lack the necessary stretch to provide a comfortable fit. That’s where elastane comes in. Elastane, also known as spandex or Lycra, is a synthetic fiber that is known for its exceptional elasticity. When added to cotton, it creates a fabric that is both soft and stretchy.
At Lure Menswear, we use a custom blend of 95% cotton and 5% elastane to create our signature stretchy fabrics. This blend offers the perfect balance of comfort and support, allowing our underwear to move with your body while still providing the necessary support and coverage. The elastane in our fabric is also incredibly durable, ensuring that our underwear will last you for years to come.
One of the things that makes our stretchy fabrics unique is the way we knit them. We use a technique called four-way stretch knitting, which means that our fabrics can stretch both horizontally and vertically. This allows our underwear to move with your body in any direction, providing maximum comfort and flexibility. This four-way stretch also ensures that our underwear stays in place and doesn’t ride up or bunch, even during the most active of days.
In addition to our custom blend of cotton and elastane, we are also exploring the use of modal in our upcoming collection. Modal is a type of rayon that is made from beech tree pulp. It is known for its softness, durability, and ability to wick away moisture. Like cotton, modal is also breathable, which makes it a great option for underwear.
Modal also has unique stretching properties that make it a great choice for underwear. It has a higher stretch recovery than cotton, which means that it bounces back to its original shape after stretching. This ensures that our underwear stays snug and supportive, even after multiple washes and wears.
At Lure Menswear, we believe that the science behind our fabrics is just as important as the design of our underwear. That’s why we carefully craft our fabrics to ensure that they offer the perfect balance of comfort, support, and stretch. Whether you prefer our classic cotton blend or our upcoming modal options, you can trust that our underwear will provide you with the perfect fit and maximum comfort all day long.
