|Sheer lace is a hugely popular lingerie fabric, with its combination of show-all transparency and the delicate cover-up of openwork lace. Often, a stretch lace will overlay a sheer mesh fabric, giving the garment more durability than we usually associate with lace, while still being airily sheer. |
With today's manufacturing techniques, lace panties can be made almost completely with a soft, stretchy sheer lace. Designs include elaborate florals, scrollwork and delicate scallops. With all the intricacy of heirloom hand-made lace, today's lace materials are made of modern polyesters, nylon and spandex. Whether bikini, thong, hipster, brief or boyshorts, any panty style can found in sheer lacy designs.
