Looking for some stretch?

First of all, what is Spandex?

Spandex, Lycra or elastane is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity. It is stronger and more durable than natural rubber.  It is a polyester-polyurethane copolymer that was invented in 1958 by chemist Joseph Shivers at DuPont's Benger Laboratory in Waynesboro, Virginia.  When introduced in 1962, it revolutionized many areas of the clothing industry.  To be honest, this fiber is not the first thing we generally think about when we think of underwear.  Our first choice is generally cotton.  However, this fiber has beneficial characteristics.  The name "spandex" is an anagram of the word "expands".  In other words, it stretches.

Because of its elasticity and strength (stretching up to five times its length), spandex has been incorporated into a wide range of garments, especially in skin-tight garments. A benefit of spandex is its significant strength and elasticity and its ability to return to the original shape after stretching and faster drying than ordinary fabrics.

So, if you enjoy wearing tight underwear that stretches, you may wish to consider spandex or something with a spandex blend (meaning more than one type of fiber).  For clothing, spandex is usually mixed with cotton or polyester, and accounts for a small percentage of the final fabric, which therefore retains most of the look and feel of the other fibers.

Brand names for spandex include Lycra (made by Koch subsidiary Invista, previously a part of DuPont), Elaspan (also Invista), Acepora (Taekwang), Creora (Hyosung), INVIYA (Indorama Corporation), ROICA and Dorlastan (Asahi Kasei), Linel (Fillattice), and ESPA (Toyobo).
