    Which one is made from mens underwear?

    These are awesome! When making a suit out of lycra or spandex to actually wear in the water, how much negative ease would you generally allow for? I love the idea of not spending an arm and a leg and my first born child on another suit, but I really need one so I’d like to try making one!
    Thanks for the post!
