I try to find a four way stretch. I had a two way stretch and it didn't make it thru the try on sessions. The bathing suit fabrics from places such as chez Ami is perfect.

Thank you Linda, I haven't been to Gorgeous fabrics yet but they say they have the four way stretch. Have you ever ordered from Spandex house? they have a good price for cotton lycra.
