Stretch fabric is comprised of synthetic fibres such as elastane or Lycra, and can either be classes as 2-way stretch or 4-way stretch. The 2-way fabrics stretch in one direction only, whereas 4-way fabrics stretch from side to side, front to back. A little stretch can be combined with silk or wool to maintain shape and give a comfortable fit.
Fashion designers use stretch fabric to create high fashion apparel, including designer swimwear and sports clothing.
