I made my first two swimsuits using rubber elastic and they turned out great! I basted the liner to the swim fabric, serged the rubber elastic to the edges, then turned the elastic under, and top-stitched with a stretch stitch. It worked perfectly. The rubber was great because it didn't matter if I accidentally sliced a bit off with the serger too!
Works perfect for making swimwear!
This elastic is perfect and comfortable.
