PARAPRINT encourages regenerative lifestyle by providing a webservice that allows users to own the blueprints of locally 3D-printed, bespoke lingerie.

This web service is for lingerie wearers who want to get something more long-lasting and sustainable to wear on top of a great fit available from the comfort of their own home.

On the website users can select any garment available in the database and organise their ‘digital closet’ to suit their unique style. It encourages regenerative consumption by gently suggesting ‘sharing’ instead of ‘consuming’ garments.

The accompanying app guides users to transform a full-length front and side view photo into a 3D model of themselves. This body data connects to the website and their digital closet will be customised, any of the selected items can then be ordered and 3D-printed locally. 3D-printing gives the opportunity to effortlessly change size and structure based on the individual’s needs for support as well as integrating all elements of a bra in the production with a single material — eliminating the need for post-production.

PARAPRINT’s platform aims to connect producers to share knowledge on for example local material/resource adaptation, as well as be a catalyst for those who aim to co-create a DIY-printer that runs on renewable energy and is suitable for regenerative materials
