Lingerie fabric produced on RSJ 5/1 EL for seducing the senses

With the body shown here, designers have succeeded in creating a lingerie fabric that would have enabled Aphrodite to do much more than turn Adonis' head.

At first glance, it seems very similar to the pattern described in the last issue of KWP /1/, but this new fabric produced on the RSJ 5/1 EL is more sophisticated and features a wider range of different patterns. Particularly eye-catching is the clever interpretation of the striped look.

The front section of the body combines narrow, vertical satin stripes in varying widths, some of which are crossed by stripes of a delicate jacquard pattern. It also features coloured, doubled-lined, zigzag patterns having delicate connecting pieces running between them.

The patterned ground emphasises the dynamic look of the garment. It consists of V-shaped sections worked in different jacquard patterns, which create a sensuous, transparent look and a fine, engraved appearance. The processing sequences of the coloured pattern yarns that are incorporated into the jacquard design in the front section merge smoothly and seamlessly into the larger checked pattern on the back.

The rectangular shapes slip attractively into each other to create a classic diamond pattern. A playful, filigree effect continues the jacquard motif from the front section to the intersecting points of the diamonds. All the special features of the RSJ 5/1 EL have enabled it to fully exploit all its performance potential in creating this design with its range of different patterns.

The contrasting colour effects in the front and back sections are produced by the drawing-in arrangement of the yarns in GB 5 and GB 6 in the repeat, which work a weft lapping. Both ground guide bars execute the same movements to produce the zigzag lines in the front section, whereas they execute opposing movements to create the diamond pattern in the back section.

The machine must be able to work shog paths of up to 170 needles and also operate with EL control and sequential yarn feed to produce the design as a whole.

The colour of the large, bold motifs is emphasised even more by the black ground. Cationic polyester yarn is used in GB 5 and GB 6 to produce the required colour effects. The ground, which is worked in the seductive, transparent jacquard pattern, is made from a polyester/elastane blend, and is the result of the jacquard bar and two ground guide bars working in harmony with each other.

This sensuous design is not only seductive, it also offers many advantages in terms of making-up. The panel fabric can be processed so that it forms the torso section of the body using just one seam. When rotated slightly, it can also be used as a cover for the bra cup.

The satin stripes then run diagonally to enhance the seductive plunging neckline and optically smooth-out the transition points between the different sections. The result is a body which looks as if were produced in a single piece, and which is so technically perfect that it is a master in the delicate art of seduction.
