i think you should make it a halter. so the straps tilt in like in way 1, but they don't tie around the neck

there is a swimsuit like this at delias (similar cut)
now i'm just going to have to make one for myself =D
great job

its look amazing on you both ways, you have a great back and it really shows it off! i think the straps attached may be better though, support-wise.

That is adorable! When I saw the title I thought of a one piece ski suit (cause I live in a ski town, I guess). This is sooooooooooooooo much better!!!!

thank you to everyone for the kind comments and suggestions. my camera has been busted so i haven't been able to upload a pic of the finished suit. i ended up tying it at my back halter style sans the neck wrap and i added a horizontal strap at the back for support.

tiggyn: i used a stretchy fabric, however because it wasn't treated to withstand chlorine, it developed a greenish tint by the end of the semester. otherwise though it worked out really well. it lasted the entire semester ( i used it twice every week for about an hour and a half). so for the effort and time i put in (about 2 hours and $1/yard fabric from walmart)  it was worth it. if you want your suit to last longer i'd recommend you use a treated fabric. you can find them at various places. here's one: http://www.denverfabrics.com/pages/static/swimwear/swimwear.htm.  just search for "swimwear fabric" or some such thing like that.
