What you see isn’t necessarily what you get as consumers demand more performance from their intimate apparel than just the obvious. Falling into different categories from shapewear through to cosmetic treatments. Radical features the sculpting and shaping aspects of intimate apparel where creora® performance H-350 spandex/elastane for power stretch comes into play for all day shapewear. The explosion of 24/7 shapewear is seeing different levels of performance combined with a growing interest in natural blends including cotton and high levels of spandex/elastane. Men’s shaping is also seeing a surge in interest on the intimate apparel front.
