How do you define the degree of elasticity of the fabric?

An important characteristic of the product is how stretchy the fabric is from which it’s made.

When you enter this information, you’ll be offered four options:

  • Not stretchy—when the fabric of the garment can’t be stretched;

  • Slightly stretchy—non-knitted fabrics with the addition of elastane (up to 10%), or slightly stretched knitwear. If you take a 10 cm length of this material, then with a small effort, it can be stretched to a maximum of 12-13 cm;

  • Stretchy—knitted fabrics. If you take a 10 cm length of this material, then with a small effort, it can be stretched to a maximum of 14-18 cm;

  • Very stretchy—knitted fabrics. If you take a 10 cm length of this material, then with a small effort, it can be stretched to 18 cm or more.

Important! If the garment has a lining, then the degree of elasticity is determined by the material that stretches less.

Exceptions are products in which the lining is stretchy or very stretchy; then, the correct option is to determine the degree of elasticity of the outer layer of the product.

 

About mixes of fabrics in a garment.

Sometimes, garments are made from different mixes of fabrics; in such cases we indicate the average elasticity.

Average elasticity table:

1)           Not stretchy fabric + Slightly stretchy fabric = Not stretchy;

2)           Not stretchy fabric + Stretchy or Very stretchy fabric = Slightly stretchy;

3)           Slightly stretchy fabric + Stretchy or Very stretchy fabric = Slightly stretchy.
