Burlesque bombshells and pin up kittens, be warned! This brand is the real deal. Seamed two-toned and Cuban heel stockings in red, black, blue, yellow, white, and nude, retro thongs, long line knickers and briefs, long line, strapless and sheer bras and bralets plus corselets and shape wear, suspender belts and garters; all Kiss Me Deadly lingerie is distinctly original, elaborately detailed and simply gorgeous.

Several miles away from Spanx, their retro-styled Vargas long line girdle shapes exquisitely, does double duty as a garter with six metal straps and is deliciously decorated with large black satin bows. At £50.00, their Cherie Teddy in Peach is high-quality; all satin and lace, in no way innocent yet many leagues distant from trashy. All of their items and collections exude a gritty authenticity with a hint of danger while remaining sensuous, glamorous and slightly intellectual, like a combination of Mata Hari, Grace Kelly and Bettie Page plus a little something extra to make them completely unique.

Burlesque is a musical, theatrical and sometimes literary or humorous type of production, often put on by women, with a specific type of fashion and style that has lasted through many decades and eras, even centuries. Burlesque performers, particularly women, are of varying ages, sizes and body types, typically wearing specific types of outfits inspired by looks of modern and victorian corsetry, garters and suspenders, hosiery, pasties, and more. Burlesque in modern times has become more of a fashion statement, with many women coveting the sexy, timeless appeal that comes with a woman dressed in pin up, retro, vintage and burlesque-inspired corsetry.


Burlesque outfits can be worn for a variety of purposes, whether it’s to enhance a formal outfit, for a burlesque-themed costume, or for a sexy lingerie outfit to be worn in the bedroom. There are many fashion designers, stylists and boutiques that specialize in burlesque-themed looks, creating a variety of accessories that can be pieced together for the perfect burlesque outfit.

For a corset that perfectly hugs your curves and flaunts your body, check out designers such as Kaos Corsets, Redcat 7, The Pin Up Peep Shop, SugarKitty Corsets, Bibian Blue, Maya Hansen, Burleska, and Deadly Dames.
