This is a practical question. Please excuse my stupidity!
I am organising an adult Baptism, and need to provide a gown for the candidate to wear for their immersion which, for modesty's sake, will not become transparent when wet.
Are there any alternatives to terry-cloth gowns?

Tee shirt and shorts for the actual immersion. Then, dry him/her off. Then put on Baptismal Robe. If needed a dry tee and or bra can be worn under the Robe.

Your idea has been debunked 1000 times already.. Maybe 1001 will be the charm

Thanks guys. Bleached Calico might be the go I think.

I thought they made gowns specifically for baptisms? Or is that only for infants?

Babies are generally baptised naked, then clothed in a baptismal gown or outfit. Older children, adolescents and adults are rarely, if ever, baptised in the nuddy anymore. That's why many (but not all) wear some sort of simple white tunic, usually over shorts or a swimsuit before being immersed. But I've also been to plenty of non-infant baptisms where the person wears shorts or a swimsuit for the immersion, then puts on a white tunic afterwards.
