FAQ's

1. What is the difference between stockings and hold ups? Stockings are slippery and need to be worn with a suspender belt to keep them up. Hold ups have a silicone band around the top meaning they can hold themselves up, thank you very much.

2. Basque vs Corset?
Corsets generally are laced at the back in a traditional style for the ultimate hourglass figure, they can also sometimes be worn as outerwear. Basques generally use a more sheer fabric with a hook and eye fastening. The boning still outlines the shape and is great for defining the body under clothes.

3. Why are some kimonos size 2 and 4 only?
Our kimonos are sized in S/M (2) and M/L (4)

4. What is an Ouvert?
French for 'open', our ouvert briefs have subtle openings in the gusset, usually framed with contrast stitching.
