Full-width fabric for lingerie produced on the RSJ 5/1
Apr '09
The seductive top, briefs and bra shown here are a sheer delight, both to look at and to wear.

This lingerie set, with its turquoise trim, attracts attention and excites the imagination and owes it all to the design details. Rows of differently shaped squares and six-sided polygons create an attractive striped pattern. Thick, blue borders are not used to produce colour contrasts but to create contours that appear to rise up from the ground, and dense areas appear next to oval shapes having raised borders filled-in with a lattice-like construction. The result is a combination of patterns that creates a look that is both sporty yet delicately feminine.

Feminine shapes are enhanced by the high crosswise stretch and excite the senses. The set feels soft and smooth against the skin and does not pinch, constrict or crease. It is invisible under the outer garments and provides women with the comfort they need to face the many challenges of everyday life.

This exquisite knitted lingerie was produced on an RSJ 5/1 EL high-speed jacquard raschel machine, which has already been extremely successful /1/. A small amount of cationic polyester was processed to form the thick outline around the checks. This produced the required two-coloured effect after dyeing. An elastane inlay in the polyamide ground produced a fabric having just the right amount of elasticity and a mainly opaque appearance. The jacquard bar was used in conjunction with two ground guide bars to do this.

The second lingerie set was produced using the same yarn drawing-in arrangement and styling features. It features a nested arrangement of check patterns with oval gaps filled-in with a filigree construction and softly shimmering lengthwise stripes. This jacquard design owes everything to the versatility of the RSJ 5/1 EL and its long shog paths.

And the icing on the cake for fashion lovers is the type of creations that can be produced during making-up. The fabric can be cut and sewn to produce beautiful garments, which emphasise the cleavage, create seductive curves, and enhance the skin attractively – such sweet temptation!
