I initially made this because we were joking about Banana Hammocks but now I'm thinking of pursuing my idea of decorating bikini's with leather as a fashion item.

This is cool, but would it shrink? I guess not if you treated it or something. I don't know anything about leather. But it would be cool to have a swimsuit that held it's shape. Natural enhancement, lol.

I like the idea of a leather bikini....but.Hmm, how would you wash it? I know you can treat it, but would it shrink, stiffen up I wonder...You don't want a stiff crotch! Shocked Roll Eyes
But still, I love the idea, and this looks super rad!

Thank you thank you. Yeah I was thinking about many of the factors but Like I said. maybe for photoshoots or just poses. Actually this one is for a guy. Sorry if I didn't mention that at first. But to decorate the woman's would be a matter of cutting a small triangle.

Leather can be treated but I'd assume that you'd have to wash it my hand if it's tooled leather as to not fully soak the leather. maybe some embellished panels would work too. hmm, I'm gonna have to play with that idea. Sounds like a keeper.
