Default Neytiri's "mating garment"

How is the garment she wears in the mating scene (and also in the end of the movie) made? How is it kept in form? It seems to be composed of wires, but the Na'vi don't process metals. Maybe she got wire in Grace's school?
And how is it kept in place when she leans forward - there are no straps to the back. Glued to the skin with resin?
It looks not so realistic to me compared to the other Na'vi clothing.

Actually, they do partake in some metalworking.

We don't even know if it was really made of wires, anyway. If could have been some woody vines with oily plant resins painted on, and when the resins caught light, they would shine like holographic foil.

There are really so many different kinds of plants on Pandora that I wouldn't be surprised if it was made by manipulating their qualities so that they could be made into clothing.

Beads of polished raw unobtainium on rigid plant fibers, of course. Answers everything!

That too; even if they can't smelt metals or anything, obtaining rocks and pebbles with a high metal content and polishing them would also work.

I had always just assumed it was made out of a unique plant on Pandora...

A plant that keeps its shape when bent in some way, it isn't implausible...

And, as a note, I wasn't quite sure what to think when I saw the thread title...

Maybe a change is in order?

It's okay, James Cameron said it was supposed to be like that, just don't ask.

No but seriously I have no idea and have thought about that before. I never could think of anything plausible.

Glass beads stuck on her skin thanks to sap...? I actually like it the least of her outfits, as it really doesn't make much sense (and then it MAGICALLY survives being on fire in the destruction of Hometree...Clearly it's just a magical outfit all round). Also, it had to be uncomfortable against Jake's skin, even if all they did was make out (I'm not a hundred percent convinced they had actual sex).

Didn't Weta make physical copies of most of the Na'vi clothing and jewelery to be scanned and analysed by Weta Digital?

Well i think she took off it before actual fun And regarding sex we will be never sure but imo after Tsaheylu and foreplay we saw at CE it would be obvious next thing to do

Of course, in the deleted scenes provided with CE, we see that...
