What is PVC leather?

Despite their similar appearance, PVC clothing and latex clothing are not exactly the same thing. Although both materials are great for achieving a shiny, figure-hugging look.

So what material is PVC? PVC (or polyvinylchloride, or vinyl) is a plastic polymer that's used to coat fabric to create a glossy, waterproof surface. PVC garments usually come in black or clear PVC clothing. Whereas latex is a type of rubber that creates a similar shiny look and has a more restrictive feeling while wearing. PVC is a perfect cheap alternative to both latex and leather. The fabric has a much lower risk of causing an allergic reaction and is often used in BDSM inspired garments.

Why choose PVC Lingerie?

  • PVC garments don’t require shining like latex fabric does - the fabric maintains a shiny surface without any additional assistance

  • The material traps heat, which allows you to stay warm even while wearing low coverage outfits

  • It’s water-resistant and can be easily wiped clean

  • PVC is easier to care for than both latex and leather as it is a synthetic fabric that doesn’t require nurturing

  • It’s more affordable than latex or leather

  • PVC can be worn by people with latex allergies

  • Your PVC piece of lingerie can easily be mixed and matched with other wet-look garments

How to Find the Best PVC Lingerie for You

To begin, choose which part of your body you'd like to show off - breasts, bottom, torso, or the whole shebang? By selecting a style that accentuates your favourite body parts, you're bound to feel more comfortable and confident.

Next, ensure that you’re selecting the right fit and sizing. Most PVC garments are designed to be figure-hugging and aren't always as stretchy as other fabrics, so make sure that you select the size closest to your measurements. Our tip is to check the available size guides, customer reviews, or contact our Customer Care team if you're not sure what the best fit would be.
