Use cases of four-way stretch fabrics

Four-way stretch fabrics are fabrics that can stretch in all four directions: up and down, left and right. These fabrics are often used in clothing that requires a high degree of stretch and mobility, such as activewear, swimwear, and yoga pants.

They can also be used in clothing that needs to fit snugly, such as leggings, tights, and underwear. Four-way stretch fabrics are also often used in upholstery, cushions, and other home furnishings where a stretchy, flexible material is desired.
