Tara: Stretch satin silk features importantly in your beautiful lingerie. Why do you feel this is so special to work with?
Alice: I think silk feels so luxuriously smooth against the skin, that it instantly feels special and enhances the confidence of the wearer. Using stretch silk satin helps to give a great fit that smoothly follows the contours of the body.
