For lack of information and correct orientation, a significant proportion of women buy bras and panties attracted by the design, the suggestion of a friend or because they saw a famous personality, such as model Gisele Bündchen or actress Juliana Paes advertising these products. The lingerie may not look like it but it is a part of the super feminine garment difficult to make! Especially the bra, complex piece that needs to have specific characteristics to fulfill its primary function: to support the breasts. And the fabrics used on it have everything to do with it!
It is possible to make lingerie with all kinds of fabric, but the best result is usually using fabrics having elastane in the composition of at least 5%. So the bra blades become more elastic and wear better, providing greater comfort. The breasts (or cups, or bowls) of the bras can be of elastic or non-elastic fabric, depends on the continuous use and the size of the breasts. Other fabric specifications are important as your skin touch – thermal and silky, lightness, transparency and with sweat absorption and compression capabilities.
When the breasts are large and need support, the best option is to have the inner lining of the bulge and the external conformation of tissue without elastane. Thus, the fabric helps to hold the weight of the breasts and also not to overload the weight on the handles. For those who have small or medium breasts, which do not need as much support, the bra can be made of elastane fabric, such as cotton or polyamide fabrics, quite comfortable!
The panties are simpler and usually become more comfortable and beautiful in fabrics with elastane. The best combination is to wear fabric with elastane on the back and a more nice fabric or worked on the front, such as lace, embroidery or tulle. It is also important to know that today there are technological fabrics that are used in the making of intimate parts and that are antiallergic, contrary to what many doctors think, and they only indicate the use of cotton pieces. Quality polyamides exchange heat with the body (that is, they do not soak with the humidity of the heat) and, therefore, do not allow the proliferation of bacteria. On the other hand, the Brazilian textile industry will soon provide fabrics that protect the skin by filtering the UV rays of the sun, so harmful, even if the lingerie is a clothing underneath another, remembering that Brazil is a tropical country.
