Breatheable fabric for lining?

So I'm crafting this lovely lady. I'm creating a base suit and for breathe-ability and quick drying (especially during cons), I bought a Spandex/Polyester blend that is often used in performance wear. I want to line it but I still want it to be flexible; what fabric should I line it with? The only thing I can think of it the beige/tan fabric found in most bathing suits, but I'll be honest, I have no idea what kind of fabric that is or where I might get it.

1. By quick drying, do you mean you'll be actually getting wet in a pool or something, or that you want to wick sweat from your body?

2. Why do you feel the need to line the facing fabric?

3. What are the performance specs of the fabric?

I second all those questions.

If you want to eliminate panty lines, a separate undergarment (or better yet one designed to be smooth) is a better option than the hassle of lining a body suit.
