Washing and Caring for Fabric
This extremely delicate and soft fabric must be treated differently than the normal Mika Yoga Wear Perfit™ Fabric. All swim garments must be hand washed and dried on a flat surface. The fabric tends to wrinkle rather quickly, so keep them in a safe spot!
Materials 101: There seems to be a lot of confusion around these names especially because the three are sometimes used to describe the same piece of clothing. Spandex is a synthetic fiber that is elastic and not owned by any one company. Lycra® is a brand name of spandex fiber just like Kleenex is a brand name of facial tissue. While Supplex is also a brand name for a material of synthetic fibers, Supplex is a Nylon. Though Nylon is very similar to Polyester, Polyester is easier to dry, abrasion resistant, and easier to dye.
Though Lycra® can be termed as a spandex, it would not be right to classify Supplex as a Polyester. In order to use Lycra®, Mika Yoga Wear needed to go through a process of certification (this is why we include the Lycra® tag on all of our clothing and don't just call it Spandex). Our use of Lycra®/Polyester ensures a top-quality piece of clothing and the perfect combination for all active wear. Class dismissed.
