Rio Nylon Spandex Swimwear Fabric
There is something for everyone with Rio – our new line of nylon spandex swimwear and lingerie fabric. In addition to the striking array of colours – from chic neutrals to jazzy brights – our Rio fabric features a wonderfully firm stretch and recovery. Rio is perfect for making swimwear (as both your outer fabric and/or lining), panties, shapewear, and can even be used for bra bands for smaller cups. Not only does this fabric feel great against the skin, but it also provides some tummy control and gives a smooth profile under clothing. It also co-operates well during the cutting and sewing process. Rio really does have it all!
Please note that Rio replaces our Enzo Nylon Microfibre Tricot Enzo Stretch Fabric, and will be replacing our Eurojersey Polyester Swimwear Fabric.
The Rio Nylon Spandex Swimwear Fabric is available in 34 striking colours.
Use our Rio Nylon Spandex Swimwear Fabric to line swimwear for more tummy control or for the outer swimsuit fabric. The fabric is also used to make bra bands for smaller cups. Use it for comfortable panties with tummy control, or for light control body shapers.
