Please Pass My Garter, Would You?

Feathers, pearls, decorated nipples – nothing screams fantasy more than the enticing feeling of nylon tassels gliding by someone’s skin as a burlesque dancer shimmies her way into their lap!

Spectators are always fascinated by the teasing confidence of burlesque dancers, but what gives them such coolness to demand your attention? It’s  all in the attire. The outfits are what give them the poise and authority to put on a great show and now it’s your turn to wear the feathers. Make room in your closets, ladies – burlesque gear is here to stay.

These awing outfits should be a staple the bedroom but you can also sneak it out into the streets once in a while. With its growing popularity, more women have incorporated burlesque inspired pieces into their wardrobes. The long silky gloves are the perfect addition to a feminine suit as the seasons change to the cooler climates. With the trend of recycling vintage fashions, more women have grown fond of wearing decorative thigh highs with garter belts. They come in a wide variety of design, most of them showing a line down the back of the leg finished off by a feminine bow as it reaches the ankle. They are also much more comfortable than those control tops in my opinion! Corsets in deep, rich colours pulling back on your body forces your posture into a powerful stance. You have no choice but to feel in control of the show. Paired with a pencil skirt and a fitted blazer, it is the perfect outfit for a seducing night out at dinner.

Let’s not forget what happens after dinner – you will be putting on a magnificent show. To make the dance worth the seduction you must have at least five garments to slowly take off as you’re tempting your audience of one (or more if you please) to some spicy jazz. There are the silky long gloves that you must gingerly slide off – one finger at a time. The sturdy and mischievous heels that you will kick off, one by one, to the other side of the room – careful not to hit any vases. The decorative stockings that will magically melt off your legs as you unfasten them from your garter belt. Next is the bustle skirt that oh so wonderfully accentuates your rump. Let’s not forget that you are teasing your guest and everything should come off slowly leaving a linger for more. Your corset is last to come off leisurely and tauntingly to reveal nothing but nipple pasties for the finale! It is traditional to leave the nipple pasties on at the end of the show – let’s leave something to the imagination!

Some people put handcuffs in their hair. It’s the same glow. I brought with me a couple of bracelets elastic.

I find that these look really effective on stage, but of course if you are an artist interprets or running or you will just a concert, it’s really catchy. Now, beauty on them, thus, is that you can focus on things. Now, gloves are also accessories.

They can make a suit look really elegant and what I do often, just as these gloves already blinged up a little bit. Thank you, Ann Summers. What I often do to add something to the glove, not only the bare arm, is to put the bracelet bangle on the glove.

Because I have a black dress on, I would probably wear black gloves. The reason being, you really don’t see the glove against the dress. There is no contrast.

Contrast is really, really important. What you want, this is the effect of one color against the other. All, this advisory really.

Try not to make a hat and a boa, too much around the face. But if you have a hat and gloves, it is really nice. Boa and gloves are fine.

I brought with me a two tone boa. She once again, the black in what I wear, but because it has Rose in it, it really shows. It adds a little luxury to any dress.

Fascinators are an accessory, too. It works again, if it contrasts with your color of hair, so it is not lost and that he was opposed to what you wear. This is how to choose your burlesque accessories.
