About Latex Clothing

There are three basic ways of constructing latex clothing with some overlap between them.

They are :

MOULDED - Ideal for gloves and stockings, it depends on how much thought has been put into the moulds.

GLUED - Generally using light weight latex sheeting and skilfully gluing overlapping seams. This method creates a body hugging garment because it can stretch so much. The problem with using lighter weights of latex is that it damages easily and wearers have to be very confident as there is not much between them and the outside world.

STICHED'N'SEALED - Like what we do. We use a heavier weight of latex that can be sewn. The seams then have a rubber strip glued over them to stop the stitch holes gaping when stretched. By cutting and sewing latex sheeting more complex garments can be produced.

Here a triple stitched seam on the leg of a pair of jeans is having a sealing strip glued to it.
Some of our garments are lined with either a poly/cotton lycra jersey or nylon/lycra. Here a lining is being attached to a boned bodice.
An elasticized binding being attached to a nylon/lycra lined brief.
Final stitching on the collar of a shirt

This will now be sealed and then the remaining underarm seam closed and the cuffs attached. This seam is left open to make handling it during the gluing stage easier. The sewing machine is an ordinary industrial type with a Teflon ring foot. The machines have to be set up specially so that a perfect stitch is formed. The heavy duty thread passes through a bath of silicone this lubricates the thread so that it will pull tight to form a stitch and cools the needle as it can get hot passing through layers of rubber.
