1. Why is latex clothing so expensive?

First of all, the materials used aren't cheap. There's few good companies that produce quality latex sheeting. Also, to create latex clothing, a couple of special tools and vulcanizing glue are needed. What does cost the most is the time needed to manufacture each item. Latex has the ability to stretch a lot, but if you really want a piece of clothing to fit well, it needs to be made to measure. Every order will be handcrafted fitting your personal measurements, it will be cut and glued by hand.

2. What would you recommend as a first piece?

Many people ask, "Shouldn't I buy something cheap first?". Our answer is: Yes and no. Of course we wouldn't recommend buying a 500 Dollar catsuit when you don't even know if you like the material. On the other hand, cheap latex is often moulded, or not glued well, or it doesn't fit properly. You'll likely turn your back to this otherwise fantastic material. Also: Whoever buys cheap stuff will often end up buying twice, because low quality items won't last as long as you hope for.
If this is your first experience buying and wearing latex, we'd recommend a basic piece that can be easily combined when you add more items to your collection later on. Panties, tank tops, t-shirts, pants, skirts, basic dresses, or even cute little accessories will be a great choice for you.

3. Is latex for everyone?

We get asked a lot, "I'm just a normal person with a standard wardrobe. Isn't latex just for hardcore fetishists that are deeply involved in the bdsm scene? Also, I can only find pictures of skinny people wearing latex. Am I too big to wear it?" - Again, yes and no. Of course there are a lot of adorable fetishists out there who enjoy wearing as much latex as they can... who love to hang out in dark dungeons... but latex is a versatile material. There's latex clothing that can be worn on a day to day basis, there's accessories, lingerie, and a growing market for latex swim suits.
In my opinion latex is a great choice for people with a little extra "ice cream", a belly, or love handles, and so on. Latex clothing has the ability to "smoothe" out problem areas. The body seems to be more firm and slim. The thicker the latex, the bigger the effect on your body shape.

Obviously people with a latex allergy shouldn't wear latex clothing. If this is the case with you, check out if chlorinated latex is an option for you. A lot of people have had great experiences with it.

4. How do I dress and undress best?

Pay attention to any sharp objects, especially long fingernails and jewelry. It's easiest to roll larger garments up as if you were putting on tights/pantyhose. Don't put too much stress on a small area, but try to stretch the material evenly. It can help to put one hand in between your skin and the latex.
Talcum powder or latex polish/silicone based lube on the inside of the garment will help with dressing as they make it a lot easier to slip into it. Both have advantages and disadvantages. Whily powder tends to color your sweat into a milky white tone, latex polish/lube turns EVERYTHING into a slippery slope, including the floor. ;-)
Undressing is a lot easier and will take even less time if done while showering.

5. How do I clean and store latex best? What should be avoided?

Usually, a short wash with warm water is sufficient and can be done while showering/undressing. A very mild dish washing liquid can be used if necessary. Hang the garment losely afterwards so it can dry, then turn inside out and repeat the drying.

NEVER use your washing machine, or dry clean, or iron latex! Keep latex away from sharp objects, metals, and chemicals, especially when you don't know how latex is going to react to them.

Store latex clean, dry, dark and cold (under 25°C). Roll the items losely or hang them, while they are losely wrapped in dark plastic bags. If you like, you can use polish or powder. Don't expose latex to sunlight, heat, and latex of different colors as long as it's in storage.

6. How do you ship your latex items?

Discretion is very important to us! We understand that a lot of our customers don't want their neighbors, family members, or the delivery guy to know about their love for latex. We'll pack everything in neutral shipping boxes, allowing no one to guess what's inside the package. (When shipping outside the EU, we'll fill out the CN22 as neutral as possible.) 

You'll also receive a tracking number to trace your package. We haven't had a single package that wasn't delivered fast and safe.

7. Do you manufacture custom orders? 

Often, our customers have a specific latex outfit in mind or prefer a customized, unique piece. We'd love to create something for you. Our designer sais, "I'd love to hear about your ideas and wishes. Custom outfits are my favorite! Usually there will be a way of making your dream come true. I'm happy to create something new just for you. I can't promise I'll do anything - but let's talk, there's a solution to most issues."
