What is burlesque style?

Burlesque style is all about attitude. Its about sassiness and seduction about being comfortable with your sexuality. Its about accentuating your curves and celebrating the female form.
One of the best examples of burlesque style is Dita von Teese.


There isn’t one distinct burlesque way to dress. Burlesque performers at the turn of the 20th century wore layers of petticoats, skirts and corsets with a myriad assortment of lace trim. Nowadays there tend to be less petticoats but corsets , hats, gloves and stockings are all popular.

When dressing burlesque you can go for a raunchy look with a corsets and nipple tassels and or suspenders and his heels or you can opt for a more demure 1940s pin up look that accentuates the curves but leaves more to the imagination.

Try wearing a hat, or a feather boa……

Burlesque is many things – sexiness, vintage, curves, pin up girls, striptease – but above all its fun!
