Suggested fabrics: 

Main fabric: Swim shorts fabric / men’s swimwear fabric. This non-stretch woven fabric dries very quickly and is not affected by chlorine, salt or the sun. It is made of 100% polyester, polyamide, or a mixture of both and usually weighs between 100 and 150 gsm. Note this fabric cannot be replaced by lycra, as it would not give the same aesthetic effect.

Lining: Mesh lining made of 100% polyester or 100% polyamide. Note this lining cannot be replaced with a standard swimsuit lining, as it would retain water.

Main fabric: 45 – 55 cm (17 3/4″ – 21 5/8″).

Lining: 20 – 30 cm (7 7/8″ – 11 3/4″).
