3D-Printed Swimwear

Today’s world is all about instant gratification, and that is just what the N12 Bikini caters to. Part of the fast fashion revolution that is hitting the industry lately, the bikini is the first 3D-printed swimwear that is actually made ready to wear.

Created by Continuum Fashion and Shapeways, the N12 Bikini is really a departure from previous forays into 3D printed clothing. Instead of beautifully haute couture or wearable art that is essentially difficult to pull off in daily life, the bikini is consumer-ready and appropriate for the beach.

Made out of solid nylon, the N12 Bikini boasts thousands of circular plates that are connected by thin springs, creating a new material that holds its form while also being flexible. It is currently available for purchase at Continuum Shapeways’ online store.
