Designers use nylon discs of varying sizes connected by springs to create bikinis that "flow" around the contours of the body.

Tailoring clothes could be the next big thing for 3D printers, as designers have found a way to "print" custom swimwear. Jenna Fizel and Mary Haung of Continuum Fashion used nylon discs of varying sizes connected by springs to create bikinis that "flow" around the contours of the body.

You can currently order "printed" swimwear through Shapeways' online store. While bikini sizes are limited, the founders are working on a system that lets customers send in body scans and get their clothing "printed" according to their body shape.
