   I'm thinking that it *might* be accurate to say that Melbournites tend to use the word "bathers" only when referring to a bathing suit--I've certainly never heard a Melbournite (at least, one who still lives here) refer to it any other way.

  My goodness me, Ros, that's a rash assertion! Surely they use the word to refer to people who are bathing too?! ;-)
