It doesn’t matter if your next sewing project is a bikini or a one-piece – elastic band is required. But please skip the regular one and grab some special swimwear elastic, because swimwear has to withstand quite a lot: Chlorine, heat, UV rays.
Standard elastic often becomes brittle or tears (in the worst case) after just one season. Latex on the other hand is much more durable because it does not absorb water.
We carry swimwear elastic made of 100% latex. The tape is 8mm wide and 0.4mm thick.
