Introducing our Neoprene Collection: Redefining Comfort & Performance

You've all heard of neoprene but do you know what sets it apart from traditional materials and why we're excited to be the first athleisure company in Ireland using it?

What is Neoprene?

Neoprene is a synthetic rubber material originally developed by DuPont in the 1930s. Its exceptional properties made it a staple in various industries, from sportswear to automotive manufacturing. Made from polymerised chloroprene, neoprene is known for its durability, flexibility, and crucially its resistance to water, oil, and heat.

Comfort Beyond Compare

One of the standout features of neoprene fabric is its unparalleled comfort. The material's soft, stretchy texture moulds to the body, providing a snug and supportive fit without sacrificing freedom of movement. Whether you're hitting the gym, running errands, or lounging at home, neoprene apparel offers all-day comfort.

Peak Performance

Neoprene's performance capabilities are impressive. Its water-resistant properties make it ideal for outdoor activities, while its insulating properties keep you warm in cooler temperatures. Additionally, neoprene's excellent elasticity ensures that your garments retain their shape and form, even after repeated wear and washing. Exciting properties for a sportswear designer like Trendy & Bendy!

Exclusive to Trendy & Bendy

We're committed to offering our customers the very best, which is why we've chosen to use neoprene fabric in some key pieces in our collection. The designs hit the balance of looking stylish but also perform exceptionally well.

Versatility in Design

Neoprene's versatility extends to its design possibilities. From sleek and streamlined silhouettes to bold and statement-making pieces, the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating with neoprene fabric. Neoprene has allowed us to bring practical sophisticated designs to life.

A Designer's Dream

Neoprene's light texture gives clean edges, and the range of colours means we can offer you a broader spectrum of stylish options. We have to admit one of our favourite features is its resistance to fraying, and its machine-washable nature means it stays looking new for a really long time! We've loved working with neoprene, and we have more pieces in the works for our Autumn/Winter collection.
