Titanic (film) trivia: The swim dress was the biggest costume design challenge in the movie. Over 24 copies of it were made due to all the strain that was put on them from being in the water for all the action scenes. The dress had a tremendous amount of layers to it but James Cameron wanted it to look as if it was naked against Rose’s skin when soaked. In order to achieve that effect, Kate couldn’t wear any kind of wetsuit underneath her costume unlike all the other cast and crew members who were able to protect themselves from the freezing water.
