ISKO unveils shapewear denim jeans

Using new iSKO fabric technology and unique jean engineering, Bodycon Jean and Pant are a revolution in denim. They feel like a cool pair of jeans, whilst functioning more likes a shapewear textile than traditional denim.

This is possible thanks to iSKO, the global leader in denim research and manufacturing and at the forefront in innovation, which has developed iSKO REFORM, a cutting-edge concept offering superior stretch and holding power.

THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE YARN

The stretch fibres in the weft of the denim are spun in a coil formation, like a spring. This new coil formation gives some of the power to the stretch (imagine a coil being stretched and springing back).

THE POWER OF THE STRETCH

When you pull a piece of denim you will feel it stretch. You have to exert a certain amount of power to stretch the denim out.

With their Bodycon denim featuring iSKO REFORM technology, you can exert a lot more power to make the denim stretch: about 10 times the amount required for a standard denim. This extra power to stretch the denim results in the denim having extra power when it springs back.

That power translates into a jean that holds you in, and smooths you out. It effectively bounces back more than you’ve stretched it out; as you are moving, the denim is always bouncing back and working to hold everything where it is.

THE RECOVERY OF THE FABRIC

Previously, the higher ’stretch’ the fabric, the more it bagged and sagged. High stretch denims usually stretch 40% from resting state, and can stretch up to 100% from resting state (essentially doubling in size when you stretch it out). You can expect that these fabrics always remain bagged out by about 5% – 10%.

The fibre blends, combining elastane and polyester, in the new yarn constructions mentioned above, dramatically improve bagging. For a fabric that stretches 60%, you can expect less than 5% bagging, just a fraction of what you could expect from the old stretch fabrics.

THE CUT OF OUR JEANS

They’ve done everything possible to make this the most flattering jean of its kind. From the removal of the front pockets to reduce bulk and reduce the distorted seams you can get from high stretch denim, to altering the waistband to offer internal support (giving a cleaner line through the waist). Gone is the back ’yoke’ seam to add shape and allow the bum to ’lift’, replaced with darts to create a curve that starts at the top of the jeans.

The outcome is a clean, pared back jean that gives a smooth line and streamlined shape: the refined design together with the exclusive performance of iSKO REFORM denim will make you look one size smaller.
