What is a sublimation?
Well, simply put, sublimation is a process by which sublimation dyes are printed onto a transfer medium with a specially prepared inkjet printer. Thereafter, those dyes are then transferred from the medium to an object or garment under the heat and pressure delivered by a commercial heat press. Sublimation only works on garments made of polyester, or on specialty objects made of polyester or given a polyester coating. When the heat and pressure are applied, the dye on the transfer medium sublimates, or becomes a gas, and is then absorbed into the polyester itself; the print is actually a part of the garment/coating. It doesn’t fade easily, wear, or have any texture or weight.
Next time you see the word sublimated in a description of our leggings or sport bras it refers to the explanation above.
- Durability. There is no cracking or peeling in a sublimated print, they last as long as the garment.
- Lighter. The nature of sublimation means that prints are never heavy or thick. The garment is unchanged by the process.
- Full color. Colors are vibrants and don't fade easily.
Are Vfit Curvalicious leggings see through?
This is the number one question all us women have before buying a pair of leggings, and as an active individual myself, I understand the concern. Honestly I have wear all of our leggings myself and I have even filmed videos doing squats wearing our leggings and I can tell you that they are not see through. BUT, you have to keep this in mind, BE HONEST with the size you are getting. Sometimes we like to buy small sizes with the hope they will "fit" because they are stretchy, when in reality we know we are a size bigger. So, if you know you are a size Large don't order small because even if you fit into them the fabric will stretch to its max and then they will probably be see through ( you get me?).
Are our Products true to size?
Yes, they are true to size.
