Spandex vs. Lycra?

I thought by definition they were the same thing but on the R&R website some jeans have lycra and some have spandex. So what exactly is the difference in R&R's standards?

i like mine with the 98% cotton and 2% ELASTIN blend they're really soft and stretchy and holds its shape better than lycra imo.

Then there are the washes that say on the material tag 98% Cotton/2% Lycra Spandex:



such as Amethyst

Spandex and lycra are the same thing. Lycra is a brand name.

No, you could say elasterell-p is just another term for polyester.

^^Correct

Lycra/Spandex *should* retain its shape better than the Elasterell/Elastin Blends.
