To Wash Or Not To Wash Your Stretch Denims

Whether to wash your denims or freeze it is a dilemma that has puzzled the modern day denimoholics for years. But for those who prefer easy breezy movement and comfort over toughness, and have chosen stretch denim jeans as their no-brainer clothing option–it’s not even a matter to fuss over.


The question of wash or freeze is majorly relevant to raw denims, which; mind you, are totally different from stretch denims. While washing raw denim jeans is dreaded out of a fear of discoloration and shrinkage, stretch denim is mostly fuss free that way. There’s minimal fading in stretch jeans since most of the dye is already cured and the only thing to be a teeny-bit careful about, is to avoid damaging its synthetic fibers so that it remains stretchy (hence comfortable) for a longer period of time.



When the time arrives to clean up your jeans, just turn it inside out and pop it in the cold water inside your washing machine. If you wish to go gentle on your beloved pair to keep it for longer, then just hand-wash it and leave it to dry naturally without running it through the dryer. With the use of cold water and the hang-to-dry method, you can reduce the damage done to the elasticity of your denim and increase the longevity of the stretch.

For stretch denims that take minimum damage, look for the ones made with INVIYA® and wear-n- wash your denim as and when you like.


Slacks Are The New Stylish Formal Bottom Wear

Don’t slacken in your fashion statements at work, especially when you have bottom wear like Slacks to your rescue. What are slacks and why are we talking about it suddenly? Can it be worn to office, it sounds informal. What kind of slacks are the best for me? We have tried to answer all of these questions in this piece, just read on and take advantage of the latest slack trend for office wear.


Slacks have been around since ages, they are nothing but formal pants that can be worn without complete formal attire. By this we mean that you can wear a pair of slacks with a blouse or even t-shirt and go to work (if your office code allows you to wear t-shirts, that is) and not have to top it off with a blazer or a formal jacket. Yes, it will still be counted as formal bottom wear.

Slacks may be made of stretch fabric or non-stretch fabric, depending on where you buy it or get it tailored from.

We always suggest getting bottom wear for office that stretches because it is meant to be worn for longer hours and it helps if there is room for moving around freely with stretch. In the case of slacks we highly recommend ones made with stretch fabric because they are generally tailored for a snug fit.

So the next time you feel like dressing formal but with spunk, just put on a pair of slacks made with stretch fabric and rock a meeting, presentation, interview or just about anything!

Types Of Stretch Denim Fabrics Based On Female Body Types

If you’re looking to buy stretch jeans in the near future, you might want to give this a read. Stretch jeans work on all body types because they are woven from Covered Spandex Yarn that either takes the shape of the body or sculpts it depending on the spandex to hard yarn ratio in the composition of the fabric.


If the covered spandex yarn composition has high spandex yarn counts it is likely to provide more stretch. Naturally, this fabric is made to be more flexible, taking the shape of the body type of the wearer.

This type of fabric is ideal for women who have a slim frame or a taut proportionate body. The fabric is flexible and sculpts the body of the wearer in the most natural way possible.

If the covered spandex yarn composition has low spandex yarn counts it is likely to provide controlled or less stretch. This fabric is made to be more structured and rigid, controlling the body of the the wearer.

This type of fabric is ideal for women who want to control their curves and give their bodies a taut and firm appearance.

Knowing the stretch denim fabric that ticks for you reduces bad experiences while buying jeans or skirts. Just tug to explore and pick the right fit for you.
