Please, no more spandex in clothes!

I am watching Denim & Co. I see a few things I like, but they all have spandex. I am hoping someone will make tops, pants, jeans, etc. without any spandex/lycra in them. After awhile, the spandex starts stretching and the clothes get baggy and look horrible. I don't know who started this trend, but I wish they would stop. I like to buy classic clothes and keep them for several years. I can't afford to buy a new wardrobe every couple years because the spandex is starting to rot.

 

Please bring back 100% thick, QUALITY cotton!

Could not agree more. Hate spandex. Hot and doesn;t let fabric breathe.

Spandex™ has been around since 1958

I like some stretch in my clothing and I've had no problem with it "stretching out".  I don't use very high heat in my dryer, which is what damages Spandex.  I've got pieces I've been wearing for years.

@Kachina624     Yup.....and it doesn't "stretch out" if you are wearing the right size.....

I like a little spandex as 100% cotton shrinks & loses its shape.

My favorite shirts are from Duluth Trading's No Yank line.

 

They have 5-8% spandex and they give the shirt a nice fit without being tight. 

 

Best shirts I've ever owned.

I personally prefer a little spandex in my cotton clothing, It helps a nice, snug, body skimming fit be more comfortable and keeps the clothes from sagging and bagging.

I really like some spandex in clothing - especially jeans and none I have ever get baggy.  If you get a size too big in jeans it will look like it is stretched out and they should fit very snug against your skin.

Re: Please, no more spandex in clothes!

I’m too old and fat to wear anything that doesn’t stretch.
