A quick look here at the UK’s most successful burlesque performer and her famous routine featuring a giant telephone. This edit shows the burlesque queen in all her glory with a novel and rather athletic way of removing her stockings. The routine incorporates a pair of luxurious feather fans, one of the dancer’s seductive burlesque outfits and an extraordinarily glamorous fur wrap. Check out how tiny her waits appears in her lavish corset!
Introducing the newest addition to our burlesque clothing UK collection – the Leg Avenue Gabrielle Corset. This delightfully classic corset features a satin silhouette with black and nude panels with premium support boning for defined support, adjustable lace up back and steel front bust closure. This charmingly demure corset is decorated with point d’esprit overlay and prominent, feminine black satin bow accents, the attached suspender straps complete the look. Find this brand new arrival in our burlesque corsets category and pair with a suggestive bustle and some lavish stockings to achieve the achingly sophisticated look pictured.
A new addition to our burlesque gloves collection and as seductive and glamorous as they come are the Leg Avenue Red Extra Long Satin Gloves. These deluxe gloves would make Jessica rabbit proud with an over the elbow length, lavish satin fabric and deep red colouring. Ideally worn with a co-ordinating corset and bustle skirt or long customised gown, these already popular delights make for the perfect peel….
The Summer is always a busy time for our burlesque clothing department as more and more newbies take up the wonderful art form in celebration of hen nights and birthdays. June has not disappointed with a colourful selection of items selling well, that are spread across the various categories, reflecting the (sometimes absent) Summer sunshine.
Number 3 on our best selling list comes from our burlesque hats collection and is a delicate, wedding-worthy rather gorgeous fascinator. The Leg Avenue Blossom Fascinator features a large pink flower with black feather accent and secure metal clip. Striking, yet elegant and perhaps a little Kate Middleton-esque, the perfect fascinator head piece for the Summer months.
The super duper ever so regal Leg Avenue Purple Glitter Pumps shoot up the list to number 2 this month. Playing a starring role in our burlesque shoes collection, these show-stopping lovelies feature an all over purple glitter design with contrast white scalloped trim and black bow accent. At 5 inches in height with a 1 inch platform these unusual posh purple shoes will lengthen the leg, flatter the figure and make a pin up style strut a whole lot easier.
The best selling item for the month of June and an eternally popular garment from our burlesque corsets collection is the Leg Avenue Scarlett Corset. Featuring traditional and seductive black bodice with red decor, this deluxe boned corset with side zipper and adjustable lace up back is beautifully adaptable to an array of burlesque outfits. The lavish satin bow accents and lace trim evoke luxury and style, paired with the matching bustle skirt for the ultimate glamorous pin up look.

One of our favourite burlesque performers – Roxi D’Lite – stars in a movie due to hit Canada in the next two weeks. ‘Burlesque Assassins’ was filmed last year in Calgary, and features an array of burlesque stars including the Burlesque Queen and winners of titles at this year’s Burlesque Hall Of Fame Miss Exotic World Competition. The movie follows three burlesque bombshells on their mission to ‘seduce and destroy’, attempting to foil a plot to enslave the world. Certainly sounds original and you can see a snippet of the luscious ladies in full burlesque clothing in the official trailer right here:
Lady Gaga was surrounded with fresh controversy this week, following her debut performance of ‘Lady Die’, a song inspired by the late Princess Diana. As the mega star continues the Australian leg of her tour it seems she is angering Diana fans and suicide prevention groups, with lyrics referring to the star taking her own life. Oh dear….. although we have to say that on the list of real shockers from Gaga, this is probably not in the top 10 and seems quite a natural progression from her earlier songs. What we were particularly interested to see was the inspired burlesque outfit she sported while posing with fans in Melbourne. A chunky padlocked collar, matching black bra, nipple pasties and retro rolled hair! We can see a burlesque performance sprouting just from this outfit!
Check out our range of burlesque pasties – with heart shape pasties available, just like Gaga’s!
