Why not delve deeper into our collection of Body Fabrics with a better understanding of the differences between our fabric range to suit your tone, style and shape…

 

STRETCH NET

A fine stretch net that's perfect for that extra coverage, stretch net is one of our most popular fabrics. This amazing fabric is a staple must have for your couture and with its flexible usage, it can either be used as a single layer or complimentary with other fabrics. Perfect for the use in sleeves as a single layer and stretch net inserts such as keyhole features to get that sheer look. This fabric looks beautiful crystalized with topaz and crystal ab tones and really gives a nude look on the dance floor and on stage. The most popular colours tend to be Nude which is used mostly with CHRISANNE CLOVER Couture, and Cappuccino which has a lovely rich colour finish.

WIDTH: 140cm Composition 87% Polyamide 13% Elastane

 

BODY NET

Body stretch net is more structured and gives you more support making it a popular fabric for use in leotards and undergarments. Imagine Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue and Little Mix performing in sell out concerts with crystallized skin-tight leotards - this is the perfect fabric. Also available in Black and White

POWER NET

With a tighter construction Power net gives you added support for sculpting and shaping when you want that cinched look in your undergarment or leotard. Also available in Black and White

LUXURY CREPE

Available in a variety of CHRISANNE CLOVER colours, luxury crepe is such a versatile fabric and with its fantastic qualities the colour black is used widely with our CHRISANNE CLOVER Dancewear ranges with tops, skirts, dresses and trousers.  This fabric is perfect for Latin dresses with its excellent drape but is also great for Ballroom dresses as a body fabric. A thicker fabric to the net collections but is softer and has more flow than lycra, making the dressmaking possibilities with this fabric endless.

LYCRA

The most popular fabric in our essentials range, lycra is a staple must have for all designers and is available in a vast range of colours. Lycra provides the base for almost all dresses, giving great structure and fantastic shape. With its significant strength and elasticity, it has multi uses and can be used for just the inner leotard, to build in extra support panels or as the final top body layer.
