Burlesque is a musical, theatrical and sometimes literary or humorous type of production, often put on by women, with a specific type of fashion and style that has lasted through many decades and eras, even centuries. Burlesque performers, particularly women, are of varying ages, sizes and body types, typically wearing specific types of outfits inspired by looks of modern and victorian corsetry, garters and suspenders, hosiery, pasties, and more. Burlesque in modern times has become more of a fashion statement, with many women coveting the sexy, timeless appeal that comes with a woman dressed in pin up, retro, vintage and burlesque-inspired corsetry.
Burlesque outfits can be worn for a variety of purposes, whether it’s to enhance a formal outfit, for a burlesque-themed costume, or for a sexy lingerie outfit to be worn in the bedroom. There are many fashion designers, stylists and boutiques that specialize in burlesque-themed looks, creating a variety of accessories that can be pieced together for the perfect burlesque outfit.
For a corset that perfectly hugs your curves and flaunts your body, check out designers such as Kaos Corsets, Redcat 7, The Pin Up Peep Shop, SugarKitty Corsets, Bibian Blue, Maya Hansen, Burleska, and Deadly Dames.
Corsetry isn’t the only attraction for burlesque outfits. Hosiery, garters, stockings and accessories are also important. Find everything you’ll need to complement your corset at boutiques such as Sweet Pin, Pandoras Choice, Freddies Of Pinewood, Outsiders.biz, Girdlebound, Feisty Cat, Feel Funky, and Emerald Angel.
Whether you love the look of classic, true-to-form burlesque, a little bit of pin up, a hint of retro or the sassy look of rockabilly edge, a sexy corset paired with frilly knickers, thigh-high stockings, a garter belt, suspenders and a pair of patent leather sky-high stilettos is the perfect way to feel absolutely sexy while resembling the look of a burlesque queen back in the day. Known for their sexuality and femininity, burlesque women never left without their confidence and ability to silence a room with their attitude.
If burlesque is something you’d like to try or a style you’d like to use to enhance your wardrobe, check out these shops for everything you need to have heads turning everywhere you go.
Burlesque outfits are designed to be sexy, seductive, and teasing without being overly revealing. Burlesque is often compared to the modern day striptease, with more tease and less of a woman’s body parts revealed.

Burlesque has been popular since the 1920′s, incorporating a variety of dance styles and seductive outfits, and modern day burlesque performers such as Dita Von Teese have brought the popular style of dance back into the limelight.
A true burlesque performer typically wears little more than a leotard and body suit, thigh-high stocking, corsets, stiletto high heels, and pasties, small sticky circles used to cover the smallest portion of a woman’s breast. Burlesque outfits typically incorporate feathers, pearls and sequins into their style, creating a feminine and sexy “over the top” look.
A true burlesque outfit isn’t the type of clothing a woman would wear on a day to day basis while out shopping or running errands. Burlesque outfits are typically saved for performances, where women perform a strip tease on stage to classical, often retro music. Pin up and retro styles are often inspired by burlesque outfits, and although burlesque outfits are often more revealing than everyday wear, the style of thigh high tights and fitted corsets are used in dresses and other pin up outfits.
If you’re looking for a sexy burlesque outfit but don’t know where to start or what style is best for you, check out Glamour Bunny, Sugar Kitty Corsets, The Pin Up Peep Shop, Love Burlesque, Redcat7 or Bibian Blue. These shops all incoroprate burlesque dancing into their clothing and styles, using corsets, thigh high stockings, stiletto heels and even pasties as inspiration for their creations. Professional burlesque performers, amateurs and even pole dancers or women who enjoy burlesque outfits as a type of lingerie have found the perfect outfit for them in these shops.
One of the best parts of burlesque performances is that women of all ages, shapes and sizes have found themselves doing it. The outfits are meant to enhance a woman’s fierce confidence, attitude and curves, without revealing so much that they are actually stripping and removing all their clothes. It takes a great deal of confidence to truly pull off authentic burlesque outfits, so don’t be shy! Try one
