Lisa Bahr, a student of Textile Products/ Textiles at the University of Applied Sciences, Niederrhein, has made a new bra, making use of the possibilities offered by Karl Mayer’s Jacquardtronic Lace Modern technology, with new ideas for stylish designs and production advantages. Lisa Bahr has shown how this can be done in her work for her master’s degree.

Bahr has developed a completely new bra design and associated bralette using the features offered by the Jacquardtronic Lace machine – based on the motto, ‘smart and speedy’. This innovative item of lingerie is made from just two lace pieces with two seams joining them together to produce the final garment – and moulding, pads or under-wiring are no longer required. The shape of the cup is built into the textile itself, according to Karl Mayer.

To put her idea into practice, this young designer relied on the expertise and knowhow of Karl Mayer, and on the performance of a high-bar Jacquardtronic Lace machine. As with normal lingerie fabrics, she processed all-over elastane on the high-performance lace raschel machine, but combined the uncovered yarn with a covered yarn as the pattern yarn.

The student was inspired by the organic shapes of floating bubbles when creating her design, which features circular motifs in a subtle interplay with transparent and opaque effects. The result is a bralette with a seductive look, a comfortable fit with few seams, a short time-to-market, and low production costs. A special little trick was used during production, that is, the design of the back section of the bralette can also be used to produce the matching briefs.

“I wanted to give the bust the best possible shape, so I focused on the concept of two-way elasticity. Conventional lingerie lace is only stretch in one direction. When used in a design that requires very little making-up, the circular shapes are flattened out. The effect is the same as that of a sports bra or minimiser. The stretch, core-spun yarn can be processed better in the pattern guides. It also retains the textile characteristics of the fabric,” Bahr said.
