I'd like to be proven wrong but I'm sure they've never traded costumes.

I'll...just leave that there...

You might think that, you would, of course, be wrong :)

Pre "Batman; Year One", the Robin identity was first created by Bruce Wayne during his own childhood, so he could learn detective work without revealing his true identity. So Bruce did indeed used to run around in the Robin costume.

Conversely, Golden Age Robin had access to a special Batman costume which was padded out so that he could slip into it and basically assume the size and appearance of Batman (Yes, I know that wouldn't actually work because he's so much smaller than Batman that his knees and elbows and the rest of him would be all in the wrong place, but it's the Golden Age, just go with it). It can be told apart from the standard Batman costume by the fact it has a stylised Robin redbreast on the chest rather than the Bat-symbol.

Even in the 1980's the college age Dick Grayson Robin had an inflatable Batman suit for similar situations. I'll see if I can find the issue in question.

Wasn't there also a story where they wound up switching ages somehow, and thus Dick had to be Batman and Bruce Robin so no one would notice?

Though that might've been Tim.

Yup, in the "Sins of Youth" story, Tim became Batman and Bruce became Robin

A challenge for you, o knower of all things Robin:

Did pre-death Jason ever wind up in the cowl?

I can't claim complete Robiniscience (That's like omniscience, but with better legs), but as far as the Toddster wearing the Bat-cowl.... not that I can recall.

No reason the suit couldn't do double duty if Dick improvised...
