What is Power Mesh?
Power mesh is a compression fabric used to shape, tone, smooth and streamline the body.
It's a 4-way stretch fabric with 1mm hexagonal holes throughout. It was founded by a British company called Aertex.
Power mesh started to gain popularity in the 1980s because of its ability to compress and contour the body. Plus, It's breathable and allows moisture to escape. This leaves your body feeling cool and comfortable.
Power mesh fabric is very soft and stretchy but has a high recovery rate. This is the rate of ability to return to its original size when stretched.
Because of its ability to shape and mould the body, this wonder fabric is now used in many everyday garments including athletic wear, shapewear and swimwear. It is most commonly known for its headlining role in a well-known company called Spanx.
