Posted by Vivi Y on

Latex suits offer a unique and sexy blend of fashion and fetish which has carved a niche in both the style and kink communities. They’ve been used in edgy fashion-shows and are a main-stay in fetish parties and intimate wardrobes. From the classic latex catsuit or bodysuit to leotards and the distinctive gimp suit, each style offers a unique path into latex bodysuits. Choosing a latex suit requires an understanding of the various styles and designs available, and as the authentic material is quite pricey and can last a life-time, it’s worth researching to understand how to make a good choice.

What You Need To Know Before Buying A Latex Suit

When selecting a latex bodysuit familiarize yourself with the latest trends and popular designs to find a suit that truly represents your personal style. Look for suits with features that match your taste in fashion for fetish like zippers, hoods, sealable crotch holes, or bondage anchors. The degree of coverage you want will make your options more clear—if you want something sexually revealing, or total, sensory-deprived coverage, there are specific suits tailored to your needs.

Types Of Latex Suits

    • Catsuits: A latex catsuit covers your body from neck to feet, often with long sleeves. It's a popular choice for its sleek, all-encompassing look that emphasizes the contours of the body. Ideal for both fetish events and high-fashion statements, it's a versatile piece in the latex wardrobe.
  • Bodysuits: Resembling a one-piece swimsuit, a latex bodysuit varies in sleeve length and leg coverage. They offer more flexibility in styling, easily paired with other clothing items for a more subdued or layered look. Perfect for those new to latex or who prefer less coverage.
  • Leotards: Form-fitting and breath-takingly sexy, latex leotards are typically sleeveless and offer a snug fit, resembling a dancer's leotard. They are a great option for those who want to combine comfort with the sensual appeal of latex, ideal for themed parties or intimate gatherings.
  • One-Piece Dress Suits: Dresses have an undeniable allure, and a latex dress enhances this and takes the sexy skin-tight fashion to another level. These suits come in various lengths, from stunning minis to graceful full-length gowns. They are perfect for those who wish to make a bold fashion statement while enjoying the unique feel of latex.
  • Shorts Suits: Similar to bodysuits but with shorts instead of full-length pants, these are a playful alternative, offering ease of movement and a cheeky aesthetic. They are great for summer fetish events or as a distinctive addition to a party wardrobe.
  • Gimp Suits: Covering the entire body, including hands, feet, and the face, a gimp suit caters to those interested in the gimp or latex drone fetish, and offer an intense and immersive latex experience as they turn the wearer into a faceless, nameless slave.
  • Cosplay Costume Suits: For fans of role play, suits are crafted to resemble characters from fiction, fantasy, and anime. They blend the cosplay designs with the distinct texture and look of latex, allowing for creative and unique costume designs.
  • Fetish and BDSM Suits: These suits are tailored to specific fetish and BDSM interests, often incorporating elements like straps, buckles, and more revealing cuts. They are designed with a range of kinks and fetishes in mind so wearers can fulfill their desires, no matter how tame or twisted it is.

Importance of Accurate Measurements for a Good Fit

As our authentic natural latex bodysuits are typically made-to-order, you must take all the recommended measurements listed on each latex suit to avoid buying a suit that will not fit you. Common measurements for suits, depending on their coverage, is as follows; height of your legs, torso, arms, and neck. And the width of your; calves, thigh, hips, waist, shoulders, wrists, and neck. If you’re a stable weight, you can choose a perfect fit, but if your weight fluctuates, it’s a good idea to pick a size slightly larger than your usual one.

Choosing Thick Or Thin Latex

The thickness of the latex will decide how durable, comfortable, and flexible it is, while affecting how restrictive it is, its appearance, and how hot the suit can get. Most of Laidtex’s latex suits are around 35-45mm thick, which provides a balance between durability and restriction. Other options are between 20mm which provides a comfortable and lightweight experience, though care must be taken with this thickness as it can be more easily damaged. Our thickest clothing maxes out at 100mm, which will be weighty and highly restrictive, so it is usually found in fetish-focused pieces like gimp suits. Choose based on your preference for strength or comfort.

Price Range Of Latex Suits And Alternatives

Authentic natural latex catsuits typically cost between $200 to $400, depending on the manufacturer and material used, while high-end fashion designer suits can run into thousands. Latex, being the most skin-tight and high-quality material, is also the most expensive. Alternatives like Vinyl PVC, PU, and synthetic rubber are more affordable, ranging from $40 to $100 per suit. Each material has its pros and cons, which should be weighed against cost, quality, and features. To ensure you're purchasing real latex, check for price, appearance, and skin-tightness.

How to Put on a Latex Suit

  1. Preparation: Lightly powder the inside of the suit and your body with talcum powder or use a silicone-based lubricant.
  2. Feet First: Insert one foot at a time, avoiding sharp objects.
  3. Legs and Hips: Work the suit up slowly.
  4. Arms and Shoulders: Guide your arms through, then over the shoulders.
  5. Adjusting: Smooth out wrinkles for a snug fit.
  6. Zippers/Closures: Close any zippers carefully, preferably with assistance.
  7. Soldier: A latex soldier costume offers the excitement of military-themed role play. The sleek, form-fitting design and shiny latex material create a captivating ensemble that can ignite passionate battles of desire.

Cleaning and Storing Your Latex Suit

Caring for your latex suit involves specific methods to preserve its unique qualities. After wearing, wash it by hand in warm water without soap, which helps maintain the material’s integrity. Rinse thoroughly to remove any residue. Gently pat the suit dry with a soft towel, avoiding twisting or wringing, which can damage the material. Once dry, apply a latex polish or shiner to enhance its appearance and protect the material. This keeps the latex supple and prevents cracking.
For storage, keep your latex suit in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight and heat, as these elements can degrade it. In case of damage, consult specialized tailors for repairs.
