Duchesse Satin is a type of satin fabric made with an extra thick satin weave. With a high thread count, medium-to-full body, a heavier weight and drape than regular satin, and a luxurious but firm hand, it is one of the most sought-after fabrics for use in bridal gowns and bridal wear, not to mention evening wear and lingerie. The extra weight of duchess satin, which is sometimes supported by an underlining, means that it holds shape easily and lends itself to beading and embroidery. When made with silk or a silk blend, Duchesse satin comes with an even more luxurious hand, luster, and strength.
