Sputtering, a vacuum process, is used to deposit very thin films on substrates for a wide variety of commercial and scientific purposes. Silver can inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi; therefore, it has been applied to functional textiles which are demanded in contemporary market. Undoubtedly, the silver-coated materials can add value to lingerie with functional properties which is incremental desired textile characteristics. This study aims on the application of sputtering technology with silver in lingerie design. The anti-bacterial property is developed in the silver-coated spandex, nylon and polyester blended fabric. The aesthetic characteristics of the lingerie design are developed through the sputtering technology treatment. In order to explore an effective approach for lingerie design, the silver sputtering technology in lingerie is investigated. This research work will provide insight on the application of sputtering technology and a new design process for the lingerie.
