Choosing a Lining Fabric for your Swimsuit
by Melissapher Follow

Wondering about how to find a good lining? Or if you should be lining your suit at all? I'm happy to answer any questions you have in the comments. 

I talk about the linings used (and not used) for my vintage bikini

    Question. Do you know where to get the padded lining used in swim tops to make them more modest? Not talking about foam push-up pads.

    I'm replacing the old lining cuz my suit looks new on the outside and I love it for the twice weekly water aerobics classes.  Problem is that I don't know if the lining fabric should be stretching side to side, or up and down.  I know you posted this a while ago, but am hoping you will see this and answer ASAP.  My bra section is floating out without the lining (eek!) and I don't want to miss classes this time of year, have to keep from gaining weight!  Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can give.

    You want to be able to stretch the fabric side to side.
