Do you have to line a bathing suit?

What is a double lined swimsuit?

What is the point of bathing suit liners?

What do you line swimwear with?
Swimwear fabric should be composed of 100% man-made fibers. Natural fibers such as cotton will absorb water, making it an impractical choice. Look for fabrics that are mostly composed of nylon (from 80% to 90%) but also have a significant amount of Lycra or spandex (10% to 20%).
Do all swim trunks have a liner?
Different styles of trunks have certain features, but mostly they are designed to be comfortable while swimming. Most, but not all, men’s swim trunks contain a net lining that adds to the comfort factor.
