Silky indeed! Its so smooth and I love how it feels against my skin. It was also very stretchy and elastic but always managed to retain its original shape. You know you own a bad suit when it gets stretched out and stays that and doesn\'t come back to its original shape. I\'m saying that its made of bad quality elastic, spandex and lycra. All those suits were a complete waste of money. This one is one of the better quality suits. The fitting was perfect and is suitable for any occasion, be it exercising or just as a top for a nice pair of jeans and boots. It can even be used for dance programmes and other situations where appeal is important.
