Main Fabrics: Swim fabrics with minimum 50% 4-way stretch. Athletic knits can be used, but may wear out sooner from sun and chlorine exposure. Swim fabrics with high recovery and lower stretch percentage will result in a suit that feels tighter.
Lining: Swim lining fabric with similar vertical and horizontal stretch as the main fabric. Some swim linings do not have as much vertical stretch which will affect the vertical fit of this pattern. These linings can be used, but adjustments to length should be considered for enough vertical ease. Main fabric can be used in place of lining, but may result in a slightly tighter suit.
- 1/4” swim elastic
- 3/8” swim elastic
