Known for its extraordinary expandability, spandex, which is the preferred term for lycra or elastane in North America, is a synthetic fibre which has incredible durability, strength and the ability to stretch and retain shape. Spandex is predominantly utilised in the clothing industry as it offers comfort, movement, and shape retention after being worn. It is often used in sporting goods due to its lightweight nature and ability to stretch during highly dynamic movement. As well as sportswear it is used in orthopaedic braces, hosiery and jeans.
