Ars Vivendi is a much lovelier way to say “the Art of Living”, and this online store encouraging shoppers to “Find their Passion” is truly a lovely place to shop for erotic, fetish, burlesque, pin up and rockabilly items, including heels, hosiery, love toys, art and entertainment as well as lingerie and clothing.
For ladies Ars Vivendi offers items that look back to the ‘50s in the form of bras, garter belts and glamorous or1950s-inspired lingerie plus vintage dresses, bustiers, corsets, and costumes. Lovers of burlesque and goth will adore their Victorian style steel-boned corsets while rockabilly bellas can sort through the high-class selection of clothing from brands like Bettie Page and Bernie Dexter among others. Fetish fans have their choice of items made of latex, rubber, PVC, leather or wetlook, plus modern-style fishnet outfits that leave very little to the imagination and all and sundry females will enjoy their large selection of retro shoes, from rockabilly flats to peep-toe stilettos. For psychobilly greasers, Ars Vivendi has vintage-style work shirts and T-Shirts printed with tattoo-style designs and, for those men among us who like to play, a serious assortment of metal and leather erotic wear and adornments created specifically with the male anatomy in mind.

Ars Vivendi ships worldwide via DHL Premium and accepts Visa, MasterCard, Eurocard and American Express as well as PayPal and advanced payments through bank transfer. All prices are mid-range for the selection. Their best feature, in my opinion, is the Ars Vivendi “World of Glamour & Desire” Wish List, an online gift registry one can easily send to friends or playmates to let them know precisely what you desire.
