Sputtering is a vacuum process used to deposit very thin films on substrates for a wide variety of commercial and scientific purposes and some different thin films. Silver-coated materials by sputtering technology can inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi, so it has been used for functional textile which is demanded in contemporary fashion market. It also can be used to add value by developing desired textile characteristics of the intimate apparel, such as anti- bacterial and anti-UV properties. This study is focused on the application of sputtering technology with silver in lingerie design. The antibacterial property is determined in the silver-coated material i.e. spandex fabric, nylon fabric and polyester fabric. Thus, aesthetic characters of the intimate apparel designs are developed through the technology treatment. In order to explore innovative intimate apparel design approach, an investigation of silver sputtering technology in lingerie was conducted. This research work could provide an insight of sputtering technology application and new design method of intimate apparel.
