In a world of social media and the internet, we’re all too aware of what’s trending and what’s in. From power dressing to athleisure wear, trends come and go so often that it’s hard to keep up. However, one trend that has stood the test of time is burlesque.
Burlesque is an expressive art form that was first popularized in the 20th century. Burlesque dancers wear costumes called “vests” and “gowns” to perform a dance routine. These costumes often accentuate the performer’s body with feathers, glitter, sequins and other materials. They can also be used to tell a story or represent something abstract or symbolic.
The term burlesque means “a dramatic entertainment containing satirical comedy, ribaldry, and striptease.”
The idea behind burlesque clothing is to cover the bare minimum while still looking sexy. With the right outfit, you can tease your partner while keeping them guessing what’s underneath.
It can be difficult to find the perfect burlesque outfit for your performance, that’s why today we bring you the ultimate guide to burlesque clothing! If you’re into this clothing style or want to jump into it, read on!
Everyone Loves Burlesque Corsets
If you’re looking for a risqué option, burlesque corsets are the way to go. These clothing pieces cover just enough while still accentuating your curves. They come in a variety of colours and styles. Some are designed with lace on the top, some offer a zipper closure, and others are strapless; whatever your preference is, choose one you feel comfortable and sexy with!
Corsets can be worn as a sexy accessory or as a part of your main outfit. It all depends on what you’re going for.
Our favourite burlesque corsets, of course, are the ones made by Leopard and Lace. We offer a great selection of corsets and other beautiful lingerie items at the best price. If you’re looking for high-quality corsets, check out the ones we have in stock.
It’s legs’ show off time!
If you want to go for a classic, burlesque look, then you must have a good skirt. The sexiest thing about burlesque skirts is that they’re not always short and that they’re quite adaptable. They come in different styles, so you can choose the one that suits your personality best. For example, if you want to be sexy and bold, choose a short skirt with some frills. If you’re looking for something more fun, go for a high low layered bustle skirt.
Burlesque skirts are perfect if you like wearing dresses or if your style is more girly. This type of clothing piece is also great if you want to wear a corset as well!
