XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fibre
Women feel that fit is the most important feature when shopping for swimwear and agree that great-fitting swimwear makes them feel more confident. XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fibre resists fibre breakage and fit loss 5 times longer than chlorine resistant elastane, helping swimwear maintain exceptional fit.
Almost 80% * of women expect their swimsuit to last for 2 full seasons, but most say it wears out before that time. In less than one season a range of threats such as sunscreen, pool water, heat and body oil can quickly degrade swimwear. The Speedo Sculpture swimwear collection uses XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fibre so you can be sure of long-lasting confidence in or out of the water.
