Polyester for swim trunks

Hi Guys, polyester is a popular fabric for swim trunks and boardshorts. Here let's talk about it together.


What is polyester?

Polyester is a generalized term for any fabric or textile, which is made using polyester yarns or fibers. It is short for synthetic, man-made polymer, which, as a specific material, is most commonly referred to as a type called polyethylene terephthalate (PET). It is made by mixing ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. That all sounds extremely scientific, but basically, polyester is a kind of plastic.


What are some characteristics of polyester fabric?

- Polyester is durable and resistant to many chemicals

- It is resistant to shrinking and stretching which makes it a popular fabric in the fashion industry

- The fibers dyed easily

- The fibers are strong yet lightweight

- Its quick-drying function makes it popular in swim shorts.


Why choose polyester for beachwear?

It is such a popular choice for apparel because polyester fibers are thermoplastic, or heat-sensitive. This means that fabrics, which are 100% polyester, can be given permanent pleats and decorative shapes and patterns can be laser-cut into them.
