Gothesque.de is the solution for pin up and burlesque lovers who are tired of the vanilla fashions dominated by cute red cherries and peppy retro circle skirts and want clothing that is a bit darker, racier and more Bettie Page than Doris Day.

This Moers, Germany-based online shop is located both left of the Rhine and left of center and specializes in rediscovering female lasciviousness through their wide selection of burlesque, fetish, Gothic and pin up clothing, shoes and accessories from names like What Katie Did and Pinup Couture as well as unique, handmade items.

Their burlesque section is the real deal, and relatively inexpensive to boot. Satin bustle skirts, satin gloves, seamed stockings, plastic waist-cincher sets, and girdles to die for plus semi translucent black satin panties provide everything exhibitionist bombshell-burlesque divas need to put on a show-stopping performance every day of the week, while their large selection of handmade, one-of-a- kind nipple pasties ranging from cute neo-burlesque strawberries on white with red tassels to the Admiral’s Wife pasties in metallic gold are just what the naughty Doctor ordered.

Their fetish section is pure latex in transparent nude and purple and shiny opaque black and red: mini-skirts, corsets, long skirts and shoulder length gloves so shiny and elastic you can almost hear them snap and squeak. Afterward, why not top the whole thing off with Gothesque.de accessories like collars, hair flowers, headbands, feather fans, boas, fascinators and razor pendants? Plus, dirty divas and cheesecake pin ups alike can add flair to their hair with their hot pink or fire-red hair dye.

The Gothesque.de pin up section swings to the rockabilly side and although their selection is small each piece is smoking-hot from their rockabella SugarShock Sailor Sailor Top AHOY! and glamorous Greta Black Satin Pin Up Girl wiggle dress to their retro red swimwear.

Prices at Gothesque.de range from € 9,99 to €99,99 but most fall in the middle; a reasonable range for unique and different clothing difficult to find anywhere else. Sadly they only ship to certain countries within Europe, but if you happen to be traveling nearby, you can make an appointment to pick up an order at their headquarters in Moers. They accept a bank transfer, PayPal and cash.

Specializing in demi-couture, off-the-rack and custom shape wear, corsets, iconic 1950s bullet bras and steamy seamed stockings, it is the baby of lingerie and fetish-wear designer Katie Halford.

What Katie Did

Ms. Halford became enamored with the glamour of vintage fashions as a teenager and found it easy to acquire authentic retro clothing but could find very little vintage lingerie to help fill her outfits out, so she began to design her own. Post University Ms. Halford, who never wears trousers, worked for several years as a designer in a London fetish shop where she was inspired to follow her own unique fashion vision by opening her very own luxury lingerie boutique.

What Katie Did originally sold only seamed stockings like the ones Katie herself wore every day but their product line soon expanded to all varieties of lingerie, shape wear and corsets plusanything else that caught Ms. Halford’s fancy.

Named after a favorite children’s book, What Katie Did’s followers can now purchase everything from feminine white lace undergarment sets to fetishist-a steel-boned leather corsets and all styles between at their online shop, their Ebay boutique or directly from their stalls at weekenders like the Helmsby Rockabilly or Rhythm Riots. Describing her design style as “50s Goth” for its darker-than-Doris-Day feel, Katie’s lingerie is deliciously racy, oozing suggestive pin up girl glamour without a trace of seediness.


Her ‘Striptease’ tie-side knickers and bralettes are naughty yet glamorous, her cheetah-print ‘Josephine’ set is pure vintage sex kitten and her ‘Hollywood’ line is straight-up 1930s starlet. Ms. Halford, who confesses to being an impatient seamstress, creates simple patterns that can be fabricated quickly by a skilled hand without compromising on quality or fit, and will consistently deliver alluring wasp-waists and lusciously generous curves to each body they grace.
