Lycra is a synthetic fiber invested by the company Du Pont. It consists of flexible or soft segments which are tied with rough, hard segments. Such structure results in the highly elastic material. Lycra material is never used alone, it is always combined with some natural fibers.
Lycra material styles let you forget about wrinkled clothes. Lycra dress designs are always comfortable to wear. They don’t constrict your movements and help to keep the original form of clothes after wet wash. Lycra material dresses will make you look even more attractive.
Peculiarities of lycra gown styles
This material helps to emphasize the body shape curves. However, not all dresses are straight and form-fitting. Thus, you can choose something that suits you perfectly, even if a body coat is not really your thing. There are some other things about lycra you’ll like:
- elasticity – a dress always keeps the original shape;
- dirt resistance – the material is easy to wash, regardless of what stains it has got;
- it is thin and breathable;
- it is durable, so you can wear a favorite dress for years;
- it is available in all colors.

This blue dress with a vent, however, will look better with high heels. Golden elements and wrinkles are the details that make it look more classy.
