RLS Approved Ponte Pieces

What is Ponte and how the heck do you pronounce it? For the record, (pon-tee) fabric is a knit made from polyestor, rayon, and spandex. The two-way stretch of the knit is comfortable, but because of the thickness of the fabric it smooths over lumps and bumps instead of grabbing like a regular knit would. It can almost act as a pressurized garment to hold you in without constricting your movement in any way.

Does this fabric sound too good to be true? Yeah, I know it does, but it isn’t. Most of the pieces below (with the exception of the dresses) are items we have tried on and purchased for our clients, some with in the past week!

Ponte is especially great for travel or if you have to sit at a desk for long periods of time. Ponte pants can feel like sweats but look much more polished. The knit fabric won’t substitute completely for a dress suit for the most important of work presentations, but it will do the job for every day at the office and on the weekend with jeans.
