English term or phrase: "lycra" and "spandex" in Vietnamese
Please confirm if the following is OK:
lycra - "vải co giãn"
spandex - "đồ bó co giãn" or "đồ bó"

I found this in Wikipedia:
Lycra is INVISTA's trademark for a synthetic fabric material with elastic properties of the sort known generically as "spandex". Lycra is commonly used in athletic or active clothing.

Spandex - Lycra
sợi spandex - sợi lycra

I think that translate words Spandex and Lycra into sợi spandex and sợi lycra is more comprehensible. Or better add explanation chất liệu / sợi co giãn in parentheses.
