The most commonly used fabrics for swimwear are Lycra, nylon, polyester, etc. The lining is mostly nylon. Below, the editor will share the knowledge of swimwear fabrics for you, so that you can understand what swimwear fabrics are usually worn on the body.

Beginning in the 1930s, women began to wear two-piece swimsuits with bras and shorts. By the end of the 1940s, bikinis became popular, driving the development of swimwear in new directions. Modern swimwear has surpassed the past in terms of color, style, and material, forming a new trend of multi-color, multi-style, and high-quality swimwear. This article introduces the knowledge of swimwear fabrics.Lycra, nylon, and polyester are currently the most commonly used materials for swimwear. Any special materials such as wisps and jacquard can not be separated from the above three types of elastic characteristics. Many new swimwear will be added with special processing such as anti-ultraviolet, anti-chlorine or water splashing. Lycra is a man-made elastic fiber with the best elasticity. It can be extended to 4-6 times the original length. It has excellent stretchability and is suitable for blending with various fibers. It can strengthen the texture, drape, and anti-wrinkle. DuPont Lycra with anti-chlorine ingredients will make swimwear have a longer lifespan than swimsuits made of ordinary materials.Although the texture of nylon fabric is not as solid as Lycra fabric, its elasticity and softness are comparable to Lycra. It is currently the most commonly used fabric for swimwear and is suitable for mid-priced products. Polyester fabric is one-way and two-way stretched elastic fabric. Due to the limited elasticity, most of them are used in swimming trunks or women's swimming split two-piece style, not suitable for one-piece styles. Fabrics that can be partially spliced or applied with low unit price strategies. The design of swimwear takes "comfort" and "fitness" as one of the principles. Most of the lining uses nylon, which must be consistent with the elasticity of the fabric, so as not to affect the comfort of consumers. Therefore, when choosing to use auxiliary materials, "flexibility" is an absolutely necessary requirement. In response to the trend, if you need to use inelastic accessories such as metal, acrylic, shells, etc., you need to choose a position that does not affect the elasticity of the body in the design.When applied properly, the excipients will have an excellent effect as a finishing touch. When choosing swimwear fabrics, it is best to use elastic fabrics with a spandex content of 15% or more, so that the swimsuits can stretch and contract freely with body movement; when swimming in a swimming pool, pay attention to the degree of adaptation of the fabric to the chlorine content of the water in the pool. Swimwear made of the most popular three-dimensional stretch fabric on the Internet is most suitable for use in cold water or swimming. Because this kind of fabric is more hollow, it is easy to maintain body temperature. Try to buy as little as possible or not to buy imitation so-called "imported spandex high-stretch fabrics." First, the spandex content of clothing fabrics is generally around 15%-20%, and the second is that imitation fabrics have very poor resilience after launching due to the variation of their composition.
