    After advice from anyone with some WS experience

    I know there are obvious solutions such as using shower rooms, pvc sheets and the inflatable purpose made sloshing pens

    However - is there a type of clothing which will largely soak up the fluid ?

    Kind of like how a wet t shirt retains the water but is there something better for a WS sesh?

    How about something made of scuba material? 

    A lot of fashion items are made using this material now, so you're not just limited to wetsuits, either!

    Oh and bamboo "cotton" is notoriously difficult to air dry because it retains water so well.

    Thanks for the reply. Never thought of that! Does that material absorb retain water well?

    Hey HNT,
    The best clothing to suck up water would be cotton or terry towelling, if it's a case of just simply cleaning up the aftermath then a cotton towel would be ideal. If you actually want to wear clothing and retain fluid then I suggest looking at cotton t shirts or terry towelling clothes. Another place to look is most fitness clothing has been created to hold sweat and fluid so it may be worth having a look at some brands like under armour and other popular sports brands.

    The main question is without delving too deep, what is the main purpose of the product your looking for?

    Well...(Clears throwt) the main purpose would be to 'wet' my partner whilst she wears the item without it going all over the carpet etc

    I have to be honest and say I'm not sure from personal use. I don't have any clothing made from it BUT the idea behind scuba material for diving is to retain a few mm of water next to your skin for insulation. It's designed to be somewhere between a sponge, and a clothing material. 

    I'd definitely recommend looking into getting a PVC sheet too, for added safety. Or a super-absorbant disposable mattress topper (designed predominantly for diaper training / kids who bed-wet) as this is literally fit for perpose :)

    As jess has said I think it would be good if you get a pvc sheet but scuba gear and bamboo cotton will
    Be ideal. You can also get specialist bodysuits and other items such as hoods which will retain any fluids from Water sport activities.so it may be worth looking at the bondage clothing on The main site, something like this https://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=33156 in the shower or with a pvc sheet may work for what you want to do.

    Neoprene, the rubber like material that lays inbetween the thin inner and outer fabric layers, is of a closed cell structure; and so is compleatly water proof. the way water gets into a "wet" suit is through the wrists ankles etc, if these areas are given seals, it becomes a "dry " suit, more commonly used by commertial divers, or anyone if they have the exra cash that they cost.

    So it will not soak up much water unless you get totally immersed, then it's only what the inner thin fabric can hold. As thats all it is meant to do, to keep that small amout of water that does get in warm. The closed cell structure of the neoprene is a great insulator.

    And divers are know to pee in their wet suit if its a going to be a dive in very cold water, or just if they have to go when they are underwater.
