All our swimsuits are self lined, front and back, for the smoothest appearance and figure control.
Stitching across chest and leg seams is concealed to create the most minimalistic front panels.
To ensure the seams remain hidden, lining to front panels is secured to the rubber across the full width of the neckline and through the leg seams to the crotch.
Women's styles include darts to allow for the bust and to provide a slight lift.
A fraction more tension is put in the rubber crossing the buttocks than is normal with swimsuits sold off the rack. Our swimsuits are designed to look good on your body, never mind the clothes hanger!
For fabric we use Vita from Carvico in Milan. It is 78% Recycled Nylon, a.k.a. "Econyl" and 22% Xtra Life Lycra. (Note: One colour, Neon Pink, is 78% Polyester, not Nylon, for colour fastness.)
All threads are UV and chlorine resistant polyester. Depending on the colour, they are from one of the following makers: American and Efird (A&E), Coats in the UK, or Perfect Thread Co. in the USA.
For elasticity and endurance, 0.63mm thick treated latex is sewn into straps and all opening seams.
All hardware is moulded exclusively for Pride using alloys not effected by salt water or by chlorine. Electrostatic rack plating contains no heavy metals, for example cadmium, chromium, copper, mercury, nickel or lead.
