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

<P>Let me try it again! I *think* that most Melbournians wouldn't use any term other than "bathers" to refer to that item of clothing also called a bathing suit or something similar. I never heard it referred to in any other way when I was growing up.</P>
<P>Now that doesn't sound like anything important that anyone really had to hear, so I'll just go back into a hole until I can put a sensible thought together!!</P>
