There’s a type of fabric that’s taking over what jeans are made of – stretch denim. This denim cotton includes a small amount of elastane, about one to three percent, into the fabric, which makes it the closest blend to pure denim. If you’ve ever heard of Spandex or Lycra, you’ve felt this stretchy, synthetic fiber. It is what gives jeans more flexibility. Stretch jeans are popular because they present more “give” with body movements. Any woman would look great in stretch jeans.
New Prime Twill
Twill fabrics are woven differently than regular denim. Twill is made by using a specific weave called diagonal ribbing. Twill denim is lighter in weight, but more durable and resists wear longer than a regular weaved fabric. Our new prime twill denim is made with 55% rayon, 24% cotton, 18% polyester and 3% spandex. These pants are a little extra stretchy and super comfortable, and have a superior premium feel to them.
100% Cotton Denim
This type of fabric will always stretch out regardless of what you do even though there is not any stretch in the fabric. When the cotton threads enlarge from wear, they’ll never be able to go back to the true size they were before. An indigo dye is often used to dye these jeans, however, 100% cotton blends are very easy to dye. 100% cotton denim quickly went out of style with the introduction of stretch denim but is now slowly making its way back in style with the introduction of fashionable “mom jeans” and “dad jeans.”
98/2 Stretch Blends
A 98% cotton and 2% elastane pair of jeans stretch out, but not as dramatically as 100% cotton fabric. These jeans are likely to get baggier over time and not bounce back because they have some stretch in them that causes them to not have much recovery. These jeans tend to be a crowd favorite due to their genuine 100% cotton appearance, but stretch and comfortable feel when wearing them.
This fabric is extremely popular due to the comfort and flexibility. You have to be careful to get these in your size so they don’t lose their shape once they’ve expanded. Super stretch started the trend for jeggings back in the mid-2000s and have stayed around in casualwear and athleisure wear, but do not frequently professional or evening wear.
