Elastic Waistband Material

Fit and longevity are crucial to garment applications. Elastic waistband material ensures long-term wear and a secure fit for comfort and support, making them an essential notion for sewing apparel. Elastic Cord & Webbing stocks various elastic material options for waistbands with features and a range of specifications to meet the needs of your sewing projects. 

Features & Specifications of Waistband Elastic

Typically, knitted elastic or woven flat elastic is used for elastic waistband applications. Knitted elastic is preferred because it retains shape, resists narrowing, and stays flat when stretched. However, a woven flat elastic is stronger and more durable, offering a heavy-duty material option for waistbands. Generally, knitted elastic is used for waistband inserts, while woven flat elastic is designed for viewable waistbands.
We have polyester and nylon-blended polyester materials for waistband elastics. Polyester is popular for its durability, stretch, and cost-effectiveness, while nylon-blended options offer softness, abrasion resistance, and shape retention. We provide elastic waistband options for plush skin comfort and gripping styles that do not ride up or roll over. Waistband elastic comes in several material options to meet requirements for a variety of apparel applications, like boxer shorts, scrubs, pajamas, sweatpants and bands, suspenders, and more.

Our inventory includes a range of options for waistband elastic material to meet your project specifications. We have a selection of various widths, 4 different color options, and 9 stretch ratings ranging from 85% to 200% in polyester and nylon-blended polyester materials for your project.
