Neckline

"Maillot" simply means swimsuit in French. We use the word to differentiate the swimming costumes we make with low and square necklines, from those with V-necks or sports necks, etc.. Our "maillot neckline" is especially sophisticated, accentuating the bust and drawing the eye to the shoulders.

Leg Line

The front leg seams of our full bottom swimsuits, fall in the join of the abdomen and the thigh, where it will neither roll up or expose you. The back scoops down to cover your bottom, for decorum and protection when sitting.

Fabric

This item is from our fast drying French Woven range. Every strand is elastane with a flexible nylon and polyester casing around it. The drying time, fabric life and compressive (figure controlling) effect are like nothing you have ever experienced in a swimsuit. The elaborate milling process carries a cost, but rest assured, that will be forgotten. The benefits of your investment are what will endure. 

Features

  • Side darts have been added to allow for the bust and so the fabric can do what it does so well, with regards to support. 
  • To ensure the seams remain hidden, the lining to the front panel has been secured to the rubber across the full width of the neckline and through the leg seams to the crotch. This painstaking step in the sewing is a big factor in the notable comfort of Pride swimwear. 

    Constitution

    • For the outer self fabric, as well as the lining, we use 143gsm "Espadon" stretch woven fabric from Payen in France. Every strand of elastane is spun within a protective casing of nylon with polyester. (Read about the French Woven fabric we use). 
    • All threads are UV and chlorine resistant polyester are from Coats in the UK.
    • For elasticity and endurance, 0.63mm thick treated latex has been used in the following widths: 6mm across the front leg seams; and 8mm across the neck, buttocks and back seams and through the adjustable straps.
    • The O-rings and 8-sliders are steel, encased within nylon, so they will never rust.

    Credits

    • Each piece individually cut and sewn in Newcastle East in Australia. 
    • Design and prototyping by Steven Fleming
    • Pattern making and grading by Shrubb Hub.

    E-1027

    E-1027This is the swimsuit I would make for Irish Modernist architect, Eileen Gray. E-1027 is the name of the house she designed in Roquebrune, Cap Martin, in 1926. Here is Eileen with fellow avant-gardists, Le Corbusier and Jean Badovici:

    If I could take this swimsuit back in time for her, I would urge her and her group to stop their idolisation of steamships and cars. Those are not machines par excellence, as they believed, and they should not have been paragons for the designers of Modern cities. We should have built cities around the power of the human body, a machine capable of manual effort, for example, by powering bicycles for urban transport.

    This swimsuit, I believe, honours the body, the machine that gets stronger with use.
