So my thighs are gross so I bought a pair of really cool onsale mens trunks at walmart. except waaaaay too big. Resizing done with small stitches that literally took hours. I had to go over them again and again because it has to move with me in the water, and I sew by hand only.

Then I bought this halter one piece, which I'll just wear the shorts on top of.
The halter was so low cut and the cups were not just enormous they were very wide and broad, and the suit was obviously made for a big-breasted woman. I am not tiny but not that big.
ANYWAY. I took this stretchy material and soaked it in water and it seemed to do okay so I dried it and cut out a triangle of it as sort of a modesty panel, if you will, its the camo material. I sewed it on the inside.
the cups I put a slice in and took out most of the padding in there and  put in a cup on each side of a bra I'd thrown away because the straps were broken beyond repair. they were actually lying ontop of my trash, and its really just papers and stuff. so I slid it in there and positioned it correctly and sewed it back up. fits MUCH better now.
I love the halter neck.

What a great idea. The halter is great.
