So, I have a question. Before I go and spend a bunch of money and time on it, I thought I would just run this by some of the more experienced sewers on here.

I want to try making a bathing suit, because I'm a big girl who cant find cute bathing suits in my size that cost less than $100. But, because I am a big girl, with big tatas, I want it to be underwire. From what I read about making an underwire bra I don't think I'm skilled enough to actually create one. So my idea was to get an old underwire bra, cut off the hook and eye closure part on the back all together and replace it with wide elastic as to make it more comfortable and some other modifications here and there.

Then basically, my plan is to make the bathing suit fabric as more of just an overlay over the bra. Attaching it, obviously at the top, and then in other strategic areas to create the shape, then just extending the fabric down to cover the tummy. It would be like a tankini.

Does anyone think that this could actually work?
