We offer two different types of mesh. A non stretchy sports mesh (similar to a sports jersey fabric). This mesh is breathable and lightweight, but is double layered for extra strength. This fabric may stretch slightly over time, but not as much as a fishnet style mesh (and will not have any apparent stretch when pulling on the fabric). Our second mesh fabric is a traditional polyester corsetry mesh. This fabric feels like wire, and does not stretch anymore than cotton or satin. Corsetry mesh is finer in weave and the edges can poke through the binding of the corset (poking or rubbing against your skin). If you find a stray edge has worked its way through the binding, we recommend carefully trimming with nail clippers. This type of mesh is recommended to be worn with a corset liner to avoid irritation.
