Is this braided or swimsuit elastic?
I hope I can describe this correctly. When in its natural state it looks like regular elastic but when pulled it looks like a grid. It’s stretchier than regular elastic and sews much nicer. It also seems thinner but maybe that’s the gridding.
I discovered it in my baggie of remnant elastic and it is wonderful for doll clothes casings and elastic gathers. I only have a bit of the 1/4″ left and would love to get more but am not sure what it’s called.
Does anyone know?
It might be what is called 'knitted elastic' rather than woven or braided elastic. Not sure without a picture.

You may have to navigate around a bit but I think it should come up with the knitted elastic page. The picture is small but maybe you can see.......and the narrow does sort of have a 'grid' look to it. I use it for sleeves and children's mittens........
Hope this is helpful
