What are the most common swimsuit fabrics?

1. DuPont LeicaIt is a kind of artificial elastic fiber, the best elastic fabric, can extend to 4~6 times of the original length, and has excellent extension. It is suitable for blending with various fibers, and can enhance the texture drape and wrinkle resistance. DuPont Lycra with anti-chlorine ingredients,Swimsuits have a longer life than regular swimwear, and are more suitable for one-piece swimsuits.2, nylon fabricNylon fabric swimwear is of medium price. Of course, compared with DuPont Lycra swimsuit, the solidity is not enough, but the elasticity and softness are comparable. It is the most common swimsuit fabric used by people. It is currently the most commonly used fabric for swimwear and is suitable for mid-priced products.3, polyester fabricPolyester fabric is a one-way, two-strand stretch fabric. Because its swimsuit is small, limited, and is a low-priced product, it is generally designed as a split swimsuit, not suitable for a one-piece swimsuit.What kind of swimsuit is a good swimsuitThe good swimsuit fabric is soft and elastic. The texture of the fabric is relatively dense, and the cutting is exquisite. The sewing is made of elastic lines, and the line is not broken due to the movement. When trying on, the principle of fit and comfort is too easy to take water, which increases the burden on the body and the resistance during swimming. If it is too small, it will easily cause a trace to the limbs, causing poor blood flow.

Types of Fabric Used for Swimsuits

Tried-and-True NylonKris Robertson/Demand MediaIf you pick up a swimsuit off the rack, there's a pretty good chance it contains nylon. This lightweight manufactured fiber offers a lot of stretch and hearty moisture-wicking capability, making for speedy drying times. On the flip side, nylon swimwear may fray or fade after prolonged sun exposure.Shapely in SpandexKris Robertson/Demand MediaSpandex lends itself to a great deal of modern swimwear, though it's typically not the sole fabric. As part of a material blend, soft and light spandex ups the swimsuit's stretchiness; the more spandex in the suit, the more shape-hugging it is. This makes it a vital component in competitive swimwear. Spandex slims the figure, but chlorine takes a toll on its elasticity over time.The Poly AlternativeKris Robertson/Demand MediaPolyester, not nearly as common in swimwear as its stretchier brethren, looks similar to nylon but is heavier and not very stretchable. Man-man polyester earns high marks for durability, but it's a thirsty fabric, which may weigh down your swim. Modern polybutylene terephthalate, or PBT, reduces absorbency, speeds up drying times and amps up the elasticity.Classically CottonKris Robertson/Demand MediaEarly swimwear was made of wool or cotton, and the latter fabric can still help you nail the vintage look. While comfortable and retro-chic, cotton swimwear isn't quite as form-fitting as stretchier options, and it doesn't hold up well to chlorine. For a more durable, curve-hugging middle ground, seek a cotton blended with spandex or polyester.High-Tech TrunksKris Robertson/Demand MediaModern men's and women's swimwear sometimes packs a twist. Tan-through fabrics feature thousands of tiny holes that allow light penetration but look opaque when worn tight against the skin. On the opposite end of the spectrum, sun-protective fabrics, which cater specifically to fair-skinned folks, children and outdoor enthusiasts, disrupt ultraviolet rays. These materials are ranked by their ultraviolet protection factor on a scale of 15 to 50 or above.
