Lady Gaga Inspired Burlesque?

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!

How To Attach Our Pasties

We have a selection of beautiful pasties (nipple tassels) in our Burlesque Clothing Collection and we are often asked the best way to attach them. There are a few options and it is really down to personal preference.


Glue is a popular choice – eyelash glue or spirit gum (which needs a remover) ensures good security but may be irritating to sensitive skin and it is a good idea to test the glue on a less sensitive part of the body. The other, equally popular choice, is double-sided tape – Hollywood Fashion Tape is a good brand, available at high street stores, Asos and Amazon. We would recommend toupee tape (available from wig/hair stores) – extremely secure, great for sensitive skin and inexpensive.


Whatever your choice, the most important thing is that you feel secure and confident to shimmy, shake and twirl in your trusted burlesque pasties. Make sure you test them out!
