Lycra is a synthetic fiber made from polyurethane and was first produced by DuPont in 1959. It is lightweight, stretchable, and form-fitting with greater durability than other similar fibers. Spandex is a synthetic fiber made from polymer and was first produced by DuPont in 1962. It is known for its elasticity, low moisture absorbency, and high tensile strength.
