All styles are available up to Realise size 5L (DE 40/42, UK 12/14, US SM) and in 3 color grades :
- dolly pink (light pink, rose)
- gunmetal (metallic color like the 900s series)

These wonderful suits come with the current Realise Designer logo either on the chest (N-997, N-998, N-999) or on the front right leg cut (N-996).
The new rubberized swimsuits are now part of the current product range of Cultulu.com – but some sizes and colors are already sold out atm. Don´t worry, there will be a restock in spring 2022. Subscribe to our newsletter at Cultulu.com to get informed about the restock arrival in time.
Material Information :
Manufacturer´s product infos
The surface has a great shine and nice mirror effect, but the material is soft and comfortable to wear.
Material composition of the new N-99X-2021 series:
- Surface : 100% polyurethane
- Inner linings : 82% polyester, 18% polyurethane
The stretch level is 3 out of 5 stars : good elasticity
The suits are small. As a rule, we recommend a size smaller than the usual sizes such as the EASY STRETCH suits, especially if you have a slightly larger hip circumference.
Impressions from the Realise Model (Biru Otsuka):
Height : 167cm
Bust : 86cm
Waist : 60cm
Hips : 89cm
“I always wear a Realise size L, also when shooting these swimsuits. I felt the elasticity of the colors slightly differently:
Dolly Pink > Gunmetal > Glossy Navy (more eleastic left to right).“
My personal impression
The new suits have noticeable more stretch level than the former series (N-99X Hairline Rubberized Metallic) and it was a pleasure for our photo models of the current shootings to dress on. Well, Realise had set a high goal with the Hairline Metallic series in 2019/2020 – because to combine such wonderful optics with a swimsuit material, which even has a noticeable stretch factor, that’s a considerable performance. But now we want to talk about the new 2021 rubberized materials, and those are, as I said, extremely well done! With the two grades “Dolly Pink” and “Navy” Realise finally has “normal” rubberized colors back in the product range, which is an awesome alternative to all the (still in stock) “metallic” colors.
