    I've used nylon lined for years and never noticed any stretching. Many different brands. I get on from a high block or stool though, which might help keep them from stretching.

    I'll throw in a recommendation for saratoga wraps. Thin, breathable and cool, and they really stay put. I love mine. It's all I use now whenever I want to use polos.
