Second Skin: Couture Latex Fashion

  • By Loretta Lilly

Beyoncé wore a Givenchy nude latex dress for the 2016 Met Gala. The clinging latex gown was adorn with puffed sleeves and intricate colored embellishments across the chest and skirt which hung off of her body perfectly.

Latex has stepped out of the fetish world and into fashion. Mixing latex with every day fashion is becoming much more popular now that the fabric is becoming more mainstream. While you are out on the town enjoying the sexiness of your new latex there are a few things to remember, it has the tendency to make you sweaty. Once you have been wearing it for a bit you will find that your body has created a nice layer of sweat between you and the garment that allows it to move and slide against your skin creating that sexy feeling we love. The downside to this is that dehydration can occur quickly, especially if alcohol is being consumed. Just remember to drink lots of water and be aware of what your body is telling you.

While latex does not breathe, it is not always hot to wear. Latex acclimates to the surrounding environment. If you are in a hot club, it will be hot and if you are outside in a cool breeze, your garment will feel cool to the skin. It also depends on how tight your latex is and how much of your body is covered.

Wearing a latex outfit is a unique fabric to wear to an event to get some fun attention.
