Pharfaite´s ARROW-cut racer back swimsuit
in SGS (Super Glare Skin) wetlook finish
Already in the spring of 2021 I received my first test order from Pharphaite – and I was really very positively surprised when I opened the package from Japan and held the first suit in my hands!
Short time later, I was able to organize the first photo shooting with these new suits, and had the great honor to take photos of the SGS Racer PF630 in two color versions for you – but more about this later.
Pharfaite´s SGS material
About Pharfaite’s Super Glare Skinmaterial I have already written in my previous article – and because I can not form that better again into words – here now the excerpt:
The SGS (Super Glare Skin) material has a very nice wet shine and also a very considerable stretch level. It is a further development of the former GS (Glare Skin) materials, and as the name already tells us: the updated surface has now more gloss – also within the lighter colors.
That´s what Pharfaite says about:
“It is an unique fabric that is developed by us in collaboration with a textile manufacturer. It has been further improved over time and ultimately led to a material that has a beautiful shine while it also offers a great stretch and wearing comfort! “
About the cut of the PF630
A visual high light of the racer-back series is Pharfait´s ARROW-Cut. The suits have a slightly raised leg cut which raises up to the hip bones. The slip part on the other side has a real low cut and is slightly formed in as a “V”. That´s not only a very nice visual effect, it also guarantees a better fitting and forms wonderful cheeks.
Pharfaite sizes are approximately comparable to other Japanese manufacturers like Asics and Mizuno.
The size range reaches in general from S to XXL which is comparable with European sizes from XXS to M (DE 32 – 40/42, UK 4 – 12/14). Sadly not all styles are produced in all sizes, though there is still improvement necessary to fit European customers. However, I already see a very positive trend, because all newly announced bathing suits by Pharfaite will be available completely in all sizes.
Style PF630 is already one of the new series and is offered in all sizes up to XXL. Currently a lot is already sold out in Japan, sadly, though only a very low size and color range can be offered at Cultulu.com at the moment.
Size-feedback and shootings
I was glad to already have some Pharfaite garments available for my own photo shootings. I had the amazing models Vanessa and Tina in front of my camera. Both were wearing Pharfaite size L, which fitted perfectly. In European sizes both girls wear usually size S (UK-8, DE-36), which means that Pharfaite sizes are quite accurate according to their sizechart.
For a better understanding, I just like to mention, that both models usually wear Realise size 2L.
Although this style is currently sold out in Japan, we still have a small selection of colors and sizes to choose from – for immediate dispatch from our warehouse.
