Sexy Lingerie, 3D Printed to Fit Perfectly and Last Much Longer.
Having clothes that fit perfectly can help make you look your absolute best. A tailored suit, or a custom fitted dress that complements your body will not only make you look good, however, they can also make you feel your best.
The same goes for undergarments and sexy lingerie, but as many of us will know, having underwear, bras, or bodysuits that not only look great but fit comfortably as well can be a challenge. Fortunately, one Jess Haughton, a fashion student from Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom, has designed a line of 3D printed sexy lingerie which not only looks elegant, but can guarantee a perfect fit.
Haughton, a 23 year old from Ruislip in West London, designed the line of innovative sexy lingerie and underwear as part of a course. The sexy lingerie collection, which consists of a 3D printed stretch silicone bodysuit, a halter bra with a silicone floral pattern 3D printed onto sheer mesh, a mesh thong, and a leather harness, is currently being showcased at the Nottingham Trent University 2016 Art & Design Degree Show, running until June 11th.
Essentially, Haughton has used additive manufacturing technologies and a stretchy silicone material to create her unique sexy lingerie pieces rather than employ more traditional methods and materials like sewing and elastics. Silicone, a more resilient material than elastic, allowed Haughton a freedom of design which has resulted in more durable, smooth, and properly fitted pieces.
“Stretch silicone is amazing to work with and could really change the way sexy lingerie is made,” says Haughton. “It’s very strong and flexible when cured, and is practically impossible to unstick. It also has an amazing feel to it, and when 3D printed can create more intricate detailing than traditional methods.” Haughton has even likened her innovative method of printing silicone floral patterns onto sheer mesh to a new, more modern way of making lace.
Though her current sexy lingerie designs are part of a school project, there is little argument that the market is ripe for custom designs, and there is surely to be a demand for custom fitted sexy lingerie. With the made-to-order philosophy that often accompanies 3D printed fashion items, people could have their bespoke sexy lingerie fitted to their exact measurements. That is, by simply inputting measurements into a computer (or who knows, maybe even by 3D scanning bodies for exact measurements) people could order pieces made specifically for them. The sexy lingerie pieces could also be customized in more ways than just size, for instance through bespoke detailing and style.
Emma Prince, a senior lecturer in fashion design at the School of Art & Design said of the innovative collection, “Jess has showed real innovation in developing her range of products and has developed her knowledge of this new technology which she can expand upon when she leaves university and pursues her career. It’s a great illustration of how modern technology can change the way clothing is made, leading to improvements in the performance of garments, their fit and their market appeal.”
