With its unique array of textures and accents, this fabric celebrates the decorative possibilities of stretch-woven fabric technology. Any self-consciousness you might feel wearing swimwear, will be assuaged by the extra-firm figure control. 

Only a small length of this fabric was ever produced. Until it runs out, we will serve as many customers as we can, with custom pieces made from it. 

 

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

Our regular leg line strikes a balance between modesty and a desire to visually lengthen the leg with a leg seam approaching the hip. It is an inch higher than our full bottom cut, and an inch lower than our high leg line.  

Features

  • Side darts have been added to allow for the bust and so the fabric can do what it does 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.
  • A fraction more tension has been put in the rubber through the buttocks than is normal with swimsuits sold off the rack. A Pride swimsuit is designed to look good on your body, not a clothes hanger.

 

Constitution

  • Every strand of the stretch woven fabric, has a core of elastane within a protective casing of strong nylon around it. 
  • The lining is the same fabric, but plain, and 143gsm to support the smart tailored look and provide unrivalled figure control. 
  • All threads are UV and chlorine resistant polyester.
  • For elasticity and endurance, 0.63mm thick treated latex has been used in the following widths: 6mm across the front leg seams; and 8mm in the neck, buttocks and back seams, and through the adjustable straps.
  • Electrostatic rack plating contains no heavy metals, for example cadmium, chromium, copper, mercury, nickel or lead.

  • Each piece individually cut and sewn in Byron Bay Australia.
