Suggested fabrics: It is essential to choose a four-way stretch fabric in lycra, polyamide or nylon with a high percentage of stretch. The bodice is double layered. For more opacity, it is possible to add a four-way stretch lining between the two layers of fabric. It is also possible to line the knickers to avoid transparency.
