Karl Mayer recently developed a new machine called MJ 52/1 S LEISUREE. FASHION which combines comfort and the leisure look with a feminine design and shaping effect in a one piece body.
Normally, shapewear lingerie is made up of several individual pieces and is expensive to produce. This new innovative machine combines RASCHELTRONIC® to produce functional fabrics and multibar patterning to create stylish lace designs. It uses only one seam in the back, little processing is needed to incorporate the gusset, and there is no hem at the leg openings.
Elastane in various counts is used in a sophisticated pattern to provide support in selected areas and a softly shaping stretch. Power tapes are produced directly on the LEISUREE. FASHION to provide support in the under-bust area and at the décolleté neckline. They are produced by multiple guide blocks in a pattern bar of the MJ 52/1 S with threaded-in elastane in a count of 320 dtex. A weft-laying ground guide bar, processing elastane in a count of 156 dtex, provides widthwise elasticity.
The stitch-forming ground guide bar processes elastane in a count of 78 dtex and provides stretch in the lengthwise direction. The body is worked crosswise on the machine. Textured polyamide in the jacquard bars gives the textile a soft, pleasant feel. A subtle lace design on top is produced by string bar technology to provide a feminine look.
