Finding the right style for you can seem hard, especially when you’re dealing with a material you don’t use often. Choose the right cut and fit is very important! In today’s blog, we’re going to be going over some of the most classic looks and helping you decide what style of latex dress is for you!

  • Skater Dress

This is a great option for anyone new to latex. It hugs you in great ways while still leaving some room for airflow. It is cute, sexy and can be worn almost anywhere.

If you’re going out to the club, try pairing this piece with some killer stilettos to truly make a statement. If this is something you’re looking to wear during the day or want to dress it down a bit, try pairing it with some tights and a jean jacket.

  • Pencil Dress

The pencil dress is an iconic piece. The tight, sexy sophisticated look is great for late-night dinners, cocktails with the girls or when you’re just wanting to feel a little more empowered – no matter where you are.

This look is flattering on every body type and can hold your curves in like nothing else. It’s a great option for some office roleplay too if you’re into it.

  • Cage Dress

If you’re looking for something a bit ‘next level’ the cage dress is the way to go. This showstopper will give you a boost in confidence while bringing all eyes in the room on you.

The extra bits of latex help accentuate all of the right areas. The more strips you have, the more revealing it feels. This dress is revealing, but not too revealing. You can rock it to any party; accent with some red lipstick and you’re good to go.

  • Long-Sleeved Dress

Long sleeves can be added to any style dress, whether you’re looking for something skin-tight, a little longer or a bit kinky.

Long sleeves are great for any latex lover, especially when added to a dress. They help you get that full-body feel without keeping you stuck in a suit. There are so many different styles to choose from.

  • Cosplay Latex Dresses

Cosplay latex dresses open up a whole new world of fun and games. Whether you’re trying to win big at the next convention or want to keep this look exclusive, there are so many different options to try on.

Become your favourite character with a sexy twist. Latex has a way of making its wearers feel powerful, so using it for cosplay is a no brainer.

There is a latex dress for everybody, and you can choose whichever dress speaks to you. Have fun trying on different cuts, styles and designs. You can go back into time or fast forward to the future, it really is up to you. If you know you love latex already, then definitely get daring with some of your choices, it will open you up to a whole new world.

The word latex is also used to refer to natural latex rubber, particularly non-vulcanized rubber. You can find this material used in a lot of different items including gloves, condoms and of course clothes. Latex is an extremely unique and powerful!

Is Latex Natural or Synthetic?

There are two different types of latex – natural and synthetic. The synthetic type is created from two materials, styrene and butadiene which you get from petroleum.

The natural form of latex is used in a lot of different medical items including surgical items. They harvest this latex from a rubber tree (actually called a Hevea Brasilienesis). They then gather this liquid by reaching behind the bark and extracting the liquid that flows there. The liquid is there as a natural protector for the tree.

Once that liquid has been taken out it will cool into a solid. This is done simply by letting it touch air. It’s then rolled out into sheets and cut accordingly.

What Does it Feel Like to Wear Latex? 

Latex clothing feels like you’re getting a hug from your outfit. These outfits are a great way to boost your confidence as they hold everybody in a way that other materials can’t.

‘Tight’, ‘Sexy’, ‘Sweaty’, ‘Empowering’ – these are all words you’ll hear people use when they’re defining their latex wearing experience. Latex is extra smooth and very sexy.

Everyone will have a different experience with their latex outfit depending on the shape and cut and the temperature of the place they’re going. If it’s a cold night, you can expect your latex outfit to keep you cool too. You can combat this by layering up with jackets and stockings. However, if it’s a hot day you can expect to get a little sweaty.

Why Do People Wear Latex? 

Everyone has a different reason. Some people love the confidence boost it gives them and others just love the material. Latex can be used to add a bit of spice in your bedroom or a show-stopping outfit at your next event. The only way to find out if it is for you is to give it a go.

Putting On Latex Clothes 

Depending on whether or not your latex has been chlorinated (or ‘treated’) you’ll have a different experience. Most places will do this for an extra fee or recommend you send this off to a professional.  Untreated latex can be sticky to touch and will require talc or a lubricant.

If you have treated your latex you can just slide on in.

Is Latex For Me? 

If you’re interested in trying out latex – go for it! Once you have a piece you can feel it out and see if it’s right for you. It’s important to note that latex is not breathable, (it won’t feel like anything else you’ve worn before) and has to be treated with care, so if you’re not going to put in the care for your piece it might not be right for you.

If it’s your first time wearing latex, perhaps start with a top or sine shorts to get used to the feel. Once you get used to it that’s when the addiction begins. You’ll be in a cat suit before you know it!
