Have you ever wondered how Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, and Kim Kardashian are able to slip so easily into their latex bodysuits? The truth is that there is a right way to wear latex and take care of it. No matter if you just bought your first piece of latex or have a closet full of it, there are a few things you should know about wearing our favorite material. But first, let’s learn a few things about latex.
Latex is a type of rubber that comes from nature, while vinyl is made by people but looks the same. Because of this, latex is a better material with a higher price tag. It also fits well and shows off curves, so it’s important to know how to wear and take care of your latex pieces.
Follow the steps below to get the most out of wearing the latex.
1: Know how big you are.
Fit is important in everything. Latex is a natural material, so when it fits right, it has a slinky, figure-hugging effect that looks good on any body type. If a piece of latex is too small and you have to pull or push it onto your body, you could break or damage it. The opposite is also true: if a piece of clothing is too big, it can gape and not look as good as it was meant to. Vex comes in different sizes, and some pieces can also be made to fit your needs. If you don’t see your size in something, please let someone know because it might be possible to have it made for your body. Make sure you give your most recent measurements when you order to make sure the fit is right!
2 Get ready:
After you’ve measured yourself and ordered and gotten your latex, it’s time to put it on. But you don’t want to hurry when it comes to latex! You need to get ready ahead of time and take your time.
Latex sticks to the skin because it is made of rubber. This makes it look good, but it can be hard to put on because it causes friction. You shouldn’t pull or yank on any clothes, or you could damage them. Instead, there are ways to make the process easier.
First, when getting dressed, don’t wear long nails or jewelry. Long nails can cause tears or snags, so it’s best to put on your clothes with cotton gloves. Metals like bronze and copper make things look dirty, so you should stay away from them.
Next, when you get dressed, make sure your skin is clean and dry. Don’t try to put on latex right after you get out of the shower or after you put lotion or oil on your body. Lotions and oils can hurt the latex and make it hard to get dressed.
Make sure you have talcum powder or a lubricant on hand to reduce the amount of friction. Either one will make it easier for the latex to slide onto your body. If you are using talcum powder, use a lot of it on your body and/or clothing. The powder can leave behind traces on your body and other places, so be careful about where you put it so you don’t get powder everywhere. If you want to use lubricant, you’ll need one made of silicone, not water. You can put the lubricant on your body or the inside of your clothing.
No matter which one you choose, it’s time to put on your latex carefully. The best way to do this is to roll it up along the seams first. To put it on, slowly unroll it along your body, making sure it’s in the right place as you go. Putting one hand between your skin and the latex will help it go on more smoothly.
Once it’s on, use your hand to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles. Don’t try to grab or move the clothing if it’s not in the right place. You can slide your hand between your skin and the clothing again and try to readjust it, or you can take it off and start over, which is the safest way to avoid rips or tears.
You’re all set to go!
3. Be careful:
You might want to make your latex shine before you leave. To do this, put a small amount of lubricant on your clothing with a cloth. You could also use a spray that makes latex shine, which might be a little less messy. No matter what you use, you should wash your hands after you shine and before you leave.
When it’s time to take off your clothes, you still need to pay attention, but it should be easier than putting them on. Put your hand between your skin and the latex and gently pull the garment away from your body. Don’t pull or squeeze! Again, roll it off your body slowly and slide out of it. You can also roll it off inside out, which may be more convenient and prevent the fabric from being pulled or pinched.
As soon as it’s off, you should wash your clothes. You can do this with a little bit of gentle soap and warm water. Don’t scrub it, and don’t wash it in a machine! Once it’s clean, you can hang it up to dry on a hanger that’s not made of metal. After it has dried, you should put it in a plastic bag or a wardrobe bag that keeps it out of the sun. Light can damage the fabric and shorten the life of the garment.
So, that’s all! If that makes you feel scared, don’t give up. Latex needs to be treated with care, just like any other high-quality product, but it’s also strong, lasts a long time, and looks great. You’ll get used to it the more you wear it.
