I was having a discussion with someone in regards to these two terms. I like to sew and I watch/read a lot of tutorials from which I have learned all sorts of terms and I was wondering if someone could explain if there is much difference between using "lining" and "padding".
I use lining when it's about clothes, such as dress. Let's say I want to make a satin dress and I choose another fabric as the lining (the one that is on the inside of the dress).
For padding however, I think it's more used when a bulkier material is used. I know of "padded envelopes", or "padded bras" for examples and I think even with furniture such as sofas, in regards to the interior structure, they could have a foam padding.
That's one of the definitions that I have found which I understand and how I also define padding, that it involves a thicker material. Goose-down padded jacket for example, it would mean that it's a filling material, right?
To pad (often as adjective padded) Fill or cover (something) with a soft material in order to protect or shape it or to make it more comfortable.
These terms might be similar but I would like to hear more opinions, because in my language we have one word for the notion of "lining" and I want to differentiate when I translate texts into English.
