Fabric Specifications

We recommend the Shiny and Matte fabrics for swimwear. All Muscleskins suits are unlined. Darker colors and prints remain reasonably opaque wet or dry. Lighter colors can become semi-transparent when wet.

We recommend limiting the Ultrathin, Mesh, and Athletic Mesh fabrics for use as underwear as these fabrics can be transparent wet or dry and color may fade with usage. We imply no guarantees regarding colorfastness for these fabrics when used in salt or chlorinated waters. The Ultrathin fabrics are a sexy and luxurious option for underwear. The nylon Mesh fabrics are for true exhibitionists. Athletic Mesh is a great option for daily underwear use as these fabrics are moisture-wicking, extremely comfortable, and more opaque than the nylon Mesh fabrics.

All items in Mesh and Ultrathin fabrics are constructed using flatlock seams which have exposed thread on the exterior of the garment.  Please see representative photos for items in these fabrics.

Prints: We imply no guarantees about colorfastness, but these are common prints used for swimwear by multiple manufacturers.
