The woven and denim garment in general has almost nil stretch making the garment less comfortable and rigid as compared to knit garments, whereas knit garment has a property of de-shaping over a period of use making it less attractive and more prone to deforming as compared to woven garments.
By adding INVIYA® – bare spandex to both woven and knit category of fabrics, woven and denim garments become stretchable and knit garments retains its shape with longer period of use, thus adding value to the entire range of garments.
The entire notion of adding bare spandex to the core yarn of a fabric is to enhance the below properties of the final fabric:
- Drape – gives good drape
- Good Stretch recovery
- Wrinkle resistance
With the more active lifestyle and changing requirement in everyday life it is required more than ever to have a fabric which will not only compliment these conditions but also enhances our daily experience of clothing.
Introduction of stretch in fabric has taken a new turn with different variants of bare spandex yarn used. For example: to make fabric Chlorine resistant – we use chlorine resistant spandex in core so that it doesn’t deteriorate with prolonged exposure to water, scented/ anti-odor bare spandex is used to eliminate any kind of odor produced by prolonged use of the end garment in high physical activity etc.
Thus, use of spandex in core of the fabric has not only made the fabrics we use more compatible to our daily lifestyle but in many ways enhanced the way we live in 21st century.

Since monsoon is just a hop, skip and a jump away, it’s time for all to be ready to welcome it with open arms and possibly, free legs because there will be a lot of hopping, skipping and jumping involved wherever you encounter puddles. That brings us to our next point, which clothes are the best to be hopping, skipping and jumping around, after all, you don’t want to get soaked in the event of one poorly executed hop. What better than skirts to look stylish in and still do the hoping around with safety and grace? Here are some super stylish skirt options that will get you rainy day ready…
Tulip: this is an interesting one, shaped like an upside down bulb, a tulip skirt is just right for rainy days. It’s layered in such a way that if the legs need to expand, it would open up just like a flower, providing the comfort to hop around. If the material of the skirt is a blend of bare spandex and hard yarns, it will give you just the right stretch and structure to look fabulous and be sporty whenever it’s required
Tube: tube skirts don’t facilitate free movement for jumping puddles, they are snug body-hugging movement inhibitors… false. When bare spandex is a component of it’s material, they prove to be the perfect skirts that enable hopping and give you a chic appeal. Wear one and try it. Make sure that if you’re wearing one to work, the length is appropriate.
Circle: this is a mighty cute one that will not only make your bottom appear fuller but also give you ample freedom for jumping and hopping. It’s neither snug nor loose. It’s just free flowing. It will move with your body. Just try to get one in a heavier fabric so that in case of a surprise gust of wind, you don’t have yourself an embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Since this is a free flowing skirt, the presence of bare spandex in its make wont make much of a difference, but it always helps to have a stretch in your garments, just in case you lose or put on a few kilos here and there.
What’s the one type of dress that stays in style through the year?
If you didn’t answer that question with “Bodycon”, you might want to think again.
Fashionable or not, a bodycon dress is one that will never go unnoticed at a club, restaurant or, if you’re daring enough, even at work. It is as stylish as style can get.
All women desire to wear one but not many find the courage to. They either feel too slender or too well endowed to carry off a bodycon. We, as supporters of individual style and free self expression through style, encourage all women to try the bodycon if their heart so desires. We also offer a few tips that could help them select the bodycon for them
Curvy women could use help from getting bodycon dresses that have less bare spandex and more hard yarn in the make of the fabric of the dress… wait, what? What does that mean? That means the bodycon dress type that will make curvy women feel comfortable in their skin is one that is made with fabric that stretches but holds the body taut, in place. If you’re one who is conscious about bulges, get this bodycon dress type.
Bare spandex adds stretch to the dress to make movement easier while the hard yarn (e.g. cotton or polyester) holds the structure of the fabric in place.
Women who feel they are too slender to fit into a bodycon dress should get one that’s layered in the places where they feel they can use volume. For instance, a bodycon with ruffles at the bust or a peplum layer around the waist and butt area could be layers that flatter your body. You could wear bodycons with or without stretch and the bare spandex content in proportion to hard yarn is not of much significance.
Did that make you feel like getting a bodycon dress today?
Can you at all make clothes out of rubber?
And to think, spandex was actually created as a substitute for rubber during the world war. It was created for use in war equipment. Naturally, or synthetically, technically speaking, bare spandex possess all the qualities of rubber, but what makes it better is the fact that it can withstand high or low temperatures, not be weathered on exposure to chemicals like detergents and is very cost efficient to manufacture. In fact, research has shown that the production and recycling of spandex fibre is more eco-friendly than that of any other natural fibres, in the long run.
Now how is bare spandex or elastane utilised, because it stretches up to 500 percent it size, so how do you control its stretch and make it viable for garment production?
Simple. You take elastane and blend it with a hard yarn. A hard yarn is any yarn that is made through natural or synthetic resources. Polyester is a synthetic hard yarn, whereas cotton, a natural hard yarn.
So you either knit elastane yarn with a hard yarn through circular knitting to make garments like socks and pantyhose or you twist a hard yarn or two hard yarns along an elastane yarn to make covered spandex yarn that can be used in the creation of intimate wear, active wear, swim wear and more!
If there is one best friend who we always fail to acknowledge, it has to be the good old t-shirt which has always been a loyal companion since our pre-teens. Back in the day we would bounce upon any opportunity to wear the t-shirt whenever the sports week arrived at school. Gradually as we reached college, it became a staple wear which we would slip on whatever the occasion might be. Thanks to innovations in the textile manufacturing industry, t-shirts now combine the stretchable property of spandex and covered spandex yarn with cotton in order to provide people with ultimate comfort. Inviya spandex yarn is a popular name among t-shirt manufacturers who have been relying much on this legendary freedom fibre to provide clothes with superior stretch.
Here are two popular tees which everyone of us have in our wardrobes.
1.The Quirky Tee
With a lot of catchy headlines and saying from movies, this is the t-shirt for anyone who strongly believes in the ‘power of silence’! Simply say nothing and let your clothes do the talking. However there are many low quality duplication’s which are available in the market. To stay away from such pieces make sure that you check for the presence of Inviya spandex yarn in the contents tag.
2.The ‘Support A Cause’ T-shirt
Let your t-shirt scream out your ideology by wearing ‘Cause T-shirts’ which allow you to be vocal about the things you actually feel for. Go out for a campaign or take part in a protest by wearing it to spread awareness. However for long lasting utility, make sure that you check for the presence of Covered Spandex Yarn developed by Inviya Spandex Yarn in it!
So in case you have not been wearing the t shirt for long, its time to pull them out of your wardrobes and pair them up with your favourite jeans!
