A quality swimsuit is made from tricot® nylon-lycra®. These bathing suits have true 4-way stretch and allow freedom of movement when you are swimming. Raschelle nylon/lycra®'s do not have the stretch characteristics of the Tricot® versions. Raschelle's tend to stretch adequately in one direction, but, have only about 50% stretch in the perpendicular direction. Suits made from raschelle's will fit more snugly than suits made from Tricot®, if cut from the same pattern.
A quality swimsuit is made with rubber elastic that has been treated with Silicone®, to protect it from chlorine and salt (ocean water). Pools, spas and hot tubs are extremely harsh on swimwear. The high chlorine content will fade the fabric and destroy the elastic. Woven elastic is more susceptible to the adverse effects of chlorine bleach. Suits are put together, in part, with a serger sewing machine. These machines trim off fabric as they sew. If woven elastic is "nicked" with the serger knife it will begin to unravel. The rubber elastic in not bothered by a little nick. Rubber elastic is harder to sew with and more expensive, but it is worth it !
Good fitting bathing suits or swimwear will feature zig-zag stitching that allows, by design, more stretch and comfort than other stitch styles. Straight stitching is faster, and cheaper, but not a good application for swimwear.
