Girls Volleyball Spandex Shorts: What's Spandex?




Girls volleyball spandex shorts are an absolute necessity in order for

a female volleyball player to step onto the court and play the game.


From bunhuggers, to boxer shorts, to briefs, to Dolphins, (I've played in

them all) women's volleyball shorts have gone through more design

changes than the rules of the volleyball game itself.


But with so many types of girls volleyball spandex shorts being offered

on the market, many of the online stores just copy and paste reduced

or incomplete explanations of the volleyball product information they

receive from the manufacturers without really providing a solid

explanation of what they are selling to you.


So, if you're like me, you may go to several volleyball stores online and

see the same descriptions and same volleyball gear terminology being

used repeatedly but you’re not getting a real explanation of


a) what certain terms really mean


b) what fabrics, fabric combinations and materials are really in your

girls volleyball spandex shorts


c) how one company's volleyball spandex are really different from

another online retailer's spandex shorts.


I wanted to get a better understanding of what girls volleyball spandex

shorts were actually made of.


Also, I wanted to break that information down into easy-to-understand

bite size pieces of information and be able to share what I discovered

with you.


The first question I wanted an answer to is what fabrics are girls

volleyball spandex shorts usually made of?


We call these stretchy shorts in volleyball "spandex" but what is that?


There seem to be three types of combinations that large and small

manufacturers use to produce girls volleyball spandex shorts.


None of which are 100% spandex.


In fact, in all three types described below, "spandex" makes up no more

than 12% of the total fabric combination.


Depending on where you travel in the world, spandex is called by

different names.


In Japan, its referred to as "polyurethane." In different European

countries it's called "elastane fiber" which comes from the word "elastic."


In fact, spandex is a highly versatile fiber, an elastic material that's

more elastic than rubber and weighs much less. It is often blended with

natural or synthetic fibers like cotton, wool, nylon, or polyester.


Similarly the trademarked, LYCRA fiber is a man-made elastane fiber.


Never used alone, but always blended with other fibers, it has unique

stretch and recovery properties.


It’s designed to add comfort, fit, retain its shape, durability and freedom

of movement.


This is achieved thanks to its unique properties of the fiber, which can

be stretched up to seven times its initial length before springing back to

the original position once tension is released.



Very small amounts of LYCRA fiber, even as little as two per cent (2%),

can be mixed with any natural or man-made fibers to transform the

performance of a fabric.


During the 1990s, the company's brand position in the sports market

was reinforced with the creation of high-tech LYCRA fibers in girls

volleyball spandex shorts which help reduce athletes' muscle fatigue.
