Stretch Velvet Ribbon Velvet Elastic
Our Stretch Velvet Ribbon is ¾” (18 mm) wide and is available in both White and Black. Our customers use this soft Velvet Elastic for dance costumes or under a regular bra strap to add comfort over the shoulders. Because this velvet stretches, it is also used for fancy garters or costuming where the look of velvet is desired, but stretch is needed.
This beautiful, soft Stretch Velvet Ribbon is used for a wide variety of applications. The ribbon is ¾” (18 mm) in width. Use to make bra straps for small to medium sized bras (this ribbon is thinner than regular strap elastic, therefore, may not offer enough support for larger sized bras). Alternatively, use a stable strap under the Velvet Elastic in order to stabilise it. This will preserve the look and feel of the Stretch Velvet, while making it sturdy enough to support larger cups.
This Stretch Velvet Ribbon also makes luxurious garter straps, to dress up your garter belt or to attach to a corset. This ribbon is used for costuming, where the look of velvet is desired, but stretch is necessary.
Use this Velvet Elastic for little girls’ empire dresses or belts, where a constrictive fabric belt might not be appropriate. Use for baby and toddler headbands that are so in fashion these days. Just dress up the Stretch Velvet Ribbon with a small flower and a bow and you have a cute and fashionable stretch headband that will not pinch or constrict. If you fasten it at the back with a clear plastic g-hook, it can be laid flat in a drawer or hung up on a rack.
