Polyamide is a general term that is used to refer to a variety of different fabrics that are made from strings of polyamide monomers. The most commonly known polyamide is nylon. They are synthetic, man-made fabrics.
Polyamide has low breathability but it has great elasticity, silkiness and it is waterproof. Therefore, it’s the best option for swimwear. It will mould perfectly to your body whilst also restricting water inflow.
