I was wondering if anyone else has used swimwear as an alternative to lingerie (besides for swimming).
I am collecting a few items and except for the bulk (of material), I am finding them just as comfortable as an underdress (though inconvenient without the snap-close bottom). They are usually very stretchy, soft inner material and slides well under clothes (or in bed as PJs). They almost always have pockets to stuff extra padding.
My favourite are backless one-pieces. I have a couple of bikini sets. I can stuff them with silicone breast pads to get some weight. Being stretchy, you can get somewhat skimpy bikini tops and pad them for a decent look. With lingerie, you often have to use full-coverage bras because the thin material stretches unevenly. They are still stuffable, but not as much. I’m using 4-5 foam pads on each side (less than $5 on Amazon).
Women’s swimwear is usually expensive, but there’s always some on clearance, no matter the season. I would like to get a one-piece rashguard swimsuit, but haven’t found a good quality one for under $20 yet. I used to have a knock-off rashguard that used the nylon blend in cheap leggings but they do not have uniform stretch. Top was tight while bottom was loose. Another piece I’m looking for is a women’s diving suit, but not the neoprene wetsuit. There’s a form-fitting diving suit that’s like a speedo but in a jumpsuit style and often with stirrups. Women sometimes use it for surfing (surf-boarding, surf-gliding, etc).
Anyone who has access to a pool and can swim in it with a one-piece or bikini, I am envious. Can you share your experiences? My usual swimwear for the pool is women’s active shorts. Very stretchy, flat seams and thick enough to be appropriate in public pools.
Has anyone else used swimwear as underwear?
