I'd like to learn to make my own bathing suits, not just for cosplay, but also for swimming. I really don't like bathing suit shopping (almost as much as I hate bra shopping) because whenever I find a design I like, they don't have it in my size, and I don't like many designs... Uhg! A mad circle of shopping disgust and hate!>:\ Not only that, but if/when I make a costume that is a bathing suit, I want to swim in it!
Anyways~ What type of fabric should be used when making a bathing suit that is meant to go in the water?
In other words, one that actually works.
If you happen to know where on the internet I could buy *insert fabric type here* then that would be an awesome bonus. Thanks in advance. ^_^
Other bathing suit making tips are also welcome.
