September’s best sellers can be found right here, with a usual suspect making the top three and some of our newest pin up additions leading the way….
3. The Mariela Corset
Blue seemed to be the colour of choice when it came to burlesque corsets last month, with the Leg Avenue Mariela Corset ahead of the bustier pack and coming in at number 3 on our overall best sellers list. The deluxe corset has a fashionable circus feel to it, with a satin silhouette, steel front bust closure and oversized contrast satin bow accents. The side and rear lacing ensures an adjustable and comfortable fit.

The beautiful Leg Avenue Red Satin Top Hat, from our burlesque hats collection, was created due to the success of the original alternative fascinator in black, and has now overtaken it’s name sake in popularity. The attached sturdy comb allows a personal style and fit, while the flower and bow accent and luxurious satin adds the glamour and allure.
