Fabric Technologies

When Amoena set out to make comfortable mastectomy fashions that support you every moment, fabric technology was a top consideration. We are proud to offer superior quality with these fine fabric brands. 

 

In the Everyday, Active, Leisure pocketed collections

 

COOLMAX® ACTIVE by INVISTA – Performance fabric to keep you comfortable

Moisture-wicking was one of the first performance technologies Amoena embraced; we added it to some of our bra pockets years ago with COOLMAX® ACTIVE fabric. It absorbs and spreads moisture out across the fabric to speed up evaporation and drying rate. Specially engineered, COOLMAX® ACTIVE fabric is soft, breathable and sophisticated. 
COOLMAX® ACTIVE is a trademark of INVISTA.

 

Modal® by Lenzing – Naturally soft and ecologically sound 

fabric technologies logo modalUltra-soft Modal® was first introduced in Amoena’s Valletta tank tops, and was loved immediately! It’s no wonder – each garment made with Modal® is less likely to pill or fade, resists shrinking better than cotton, and can even feel cool to the touch. It’s great for travel or casual relaxation. Even better, the Austrian process used to make Modal is energy efficient and ecologically sound.
