Lingerie, underwear and sleepwear are essentially  the same type of garment, although each category has grown to mean slightly different things. While all lingerie is underwear, not all underwear is lingerie. Lingerie is considered more exotic, sexy and erotic, while being  less functional than either underwear or sleepwear.


There are very many different styles of lingerie, including :-

  • Camisole
  • Chemise
  • Baby doll
  • Teddy
  • Bustier
  • Corset
  • Kimono
  • Thong
  • Boy shorts
  • Basque
  • Unitard
  • G string


There are very few lingerie pattern cutters in the U.K. but there is  a fast growing demand.  This means that lingerie pattern cutters tend to be booked up well in advance, and they may be unable to take on your work for weeks ahead, if at all.

The temptation can be to use a general freelance pattern cutter who is not specialised in lingerie.  If the pattern cutter in question is very experienced and knows how to get results, then this may work out O.K. But generally it is better to choose a specialist. Not only will they be able to produce a professional pattern, but they should know how to liaise with the factory and ensure that your product is produced correctly.


Most lingerie pattern cutters should have an extensive knowledge of grading, because they will often have to do it themselves. This is because often graders have little or no knowledge of grading lingerie, especially if the grading is for a niche size group or category. We are often asked to grade for full busted figures, or for larger ladies.
