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.
2. The Red Satin Top Hat
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.

Straight into the April round up of the top 3 best sellers from our burlesque clothing collection during the last 30 days. Burlesque shoes and bustle skirts have been particularly popular and it has left us wondering if some of you are wearing just skirts and heels to perform in? Or have you all been making your own pasties…?
Betty makes an appearance again this month, but this time in red and black. The classic and utterly seductive burlesque corset features sturdy boning for support, an adjustable lace up back and side zipper for easy removal. The satin corset is decorated with black pleated ruffle detail and unique vinyl seam accents. Betty is just booootiful in her classic colours and this stunning burlesque corset is our top seller this month.
We promised you shoes – and here they are. The super striking, bang on trend, fash pack favourite and 100% unique Bordello Teeze Pin Up Tattoo Shoes. Not only are these fabulous five inchers the best selling burlesque shoes for April they are number 2 on our overall best sellers list. The scrumptiously retro tattoo print is delightfully complemented by the sweet red satin bow and these wow factor platforms have literally been dancing out the door. Hello lover ♥….
Completing our line up of little treasures is the aptly named Leg Avenue Bombshell Bustle Skirt. The burlesque bustle skirt that sets the bar high in its category. Boasting luxurious pucker bustle to really accentuate the natural curves, plush shimmy fringe trim (that both looks and feels rather lovely) plus exquisite beading draped suggestively over the fabric – we have to confess that this is our favourite. If we were stranded on a desert island and forced to perform burlesque over and over for the retro loving inhabitants and were allowed only one garment – it would have to be this one. Luuuuuuush ♥

An important part of any burlesque outfit is the bustle skirt. Deriving from Victorian fashion, essentially the classic burlesque bustle skirt is used to accentuate the rear and paired with a flattering corset, frame and define that perfect hourglass figure.
Acting as an extension to the burlesque dancer’s lower part of her body movements, the burlesque bustle skirt also adds the glamour to the retro outfit and should ideally be easy to slip out of.
The bustle skirt can be of any length, traditionally shorter at the front with a glamorous trail to the rear and typically crafted in luxurious chiffon or satin style material.
Choose from an array of gorgeous bustle skirts from our burlesque clothing collection in traditional red and black colours, exotic blues and pinks, various lengths, sporting a range of beads, bows and fringes.
