Defining your motivation will help you feel confident and make it easier to design.Just like TENVDA,its swimsuits and leotards are designed for girls.

Market Research

Then you have to start your market research,your market research will guide you in choosing the right niche and the right target customer.Researching your market will allow you to understand how to design your swimwear.


If you are not a costume designer or are not that professional,you can sketch designs for swim suits and then you can send your sketches to a professional costume designer who will discuss and refine your sketches with you.But you also have to consider these issues:

How do your designs differ from those currently on the market?What are your signature colors,prints and fabrics?What technology to use?How many colorways of each style would you like to have?

Source Fabrics

Think before you use the fabric:what is the most popular fabric material in the swimming at present?Is the swimwear designed for athletes or tourists?How elastic and durable the swimsuit is?

So,to address these issues,consider these factors:

Target group:If they are athletes,they should choose fabrics that fit closely to their bodies so they can glide easily through the water.So fabrics such as nylon,polyester and spandex work best because they fit well,are durable and do not stretch easily.If you are a regular visitor,then you can use fabrics with more stretch for comfort.Fabrics such as nylon blends and Lycra are ideal because they are soft and provide enough stretch while maintaining durability for beach conditions.

Stretch:Different types of swimwear have different elasticity,both for sports and for use in general.Specifically,swimsuits are available in two-way stretch and four-way stretch.

For one-piece swimsuits,four-way stretch fabric is a good choice.You want the fabric to stretch in all four directions to prevent sagging and promote smooth movement in the water.And a split swimsuit,like a bikini,with two-way stretch fabric is ideal.

Lining:The lining is the inside of the swim suits,so it is important for all consumers to be comfortable and durable,and to choose a quality and durable lining fabric,as cheap lining fabrics can tear and fray easily.The most common lining fabrics are 100% nylon,strong mesh fabrics.100% nylon can be stretched in both directions and in four directions for fast drying and ease of use.

Selecting the right manufacturer

It is recommended to work with a factory that specializes in garment manufacturing or bathing clothes manufacturing.They can recommend options for your design and they'll use the right equipment to make it happen!
