Soft Fabric for Men and Women’s Intimate Apparel
DuPont™ Sorona® gives intimate apparel designers the freedom to create easy-care lingerie, bras, and panties, and men’s and women’s sleepwear, briefs and T’s that combine sensuous softness with vibrant, long-lasting color.
Intimate apparel fashioned from Sorona® soft fabric caresses the skin. And Sorona® blends beautifully with other fibers, both natural and man-made, enhancing their comfort and appeal to the touch.
Consumers will also appreciate the sheer “breathability” of fast-drying Sorona®. Its quick drying properties keep the wearer dry and comfortable.
When it comes to the more intimate items in one’s wardrobe, color fastness is a must. With Sorona®, black underclothes stay a lush, rich black while white intimates hold their crisp, fresh white. Colors are vibrant, saturated, and remarkably fade resistant.
Sorona® enhances other fibers — both natural and man-made — blending synergistically with cotton, linen, spandex, nylon and polyester. For example, Sorona® gives cotton extra softness and superior stretch-and-recovery characteristics.
Easy Stress-Free Cleaning
Sorona® intimate apparel is bleachable. Unlike other intimate apparel textiles, Sorona® requires no special delicate clothes dryer settings or hand washing — a benefit much appreciated by time-pressed consumers.
For high-performance, brightly colored chlorine-resistant swimwear, DuPont™ Sorona® is the perfect choice. It allows designers to combine all the performance and comfort benefits consumers want with vivid colors and crisp prints for greater design options.
