Lingerie thread

I am currently sewing with some very fine polyester and chiffon
materials and have been recommended using lingerie thread.
What is this and where is it able to be purchased please?

Don't assume malice for what stupidity can explain.

It's a finer thread that is as strong as regular thread, created for sewing light weight fabrics. It usually comes in neutral colours. It should be available from any good thread outlet that supplies coned threads for sergers, as this is what it's usually used on.

If it is the same material, same construction, the thinner one will be weaker. Guaranteed.

It's a long staple poly thread with a higher tensile strength than regular poly sewing thread. Dunno how they do it, but it IS harder to break than standard Guttermann poly thread, that I can say from experience.

Very likely: not having subjected it to microscopic examination, I wouldn't like to say for sure, but that's certainly the impression I get.
It's great stuff for serging sheer and semi-sheer fabrics, as the reduced thread bulk makes finer seams. Trouble is that a standard size LOOKING cone costs 3 times what a similar looking cone of 120's poly costs as it has 3 times the length of thread on it! I don't do enough bridal stuff that needs it to be able to justify the outlay at present, but if I ever see it going cheap on special offer somewhere handy, I shall nab 4 cones straight off!
