Why are bathing suits so expensive?

I found this article interesting:

https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/14/style/bathing-suits-construction-price.html?referringSource=articleShare

It explains why a bathing suit, which has way less fabric than normal clothing, is so costly. It mostly comes down to fabric and labor, but the modern history of bathing suit manufacturing is fascinating. Ie when Victoria Secret stopped making bathing suits in 2016, the industry had a huge gap to fill. Sort of cool to learn what filled it, and how we got to $150 bikinis 👙

PS — I know that the category is for a TV show but with prices these days, it felt appropriate 😂
