Latex clothing. Revered for its durability and capacity for being stretched latex rubber clothing has become popular with an ever widening diversity of people.

Designers and punk instigators Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood made latex - and fetish wear - fashionable with a new, younger, hipper crowd via their Kings Road, Chelsea shop - SEX, before upsetting lots of people via their band the Sex Pistols. The trend continued in London (and rapidly beyond) in the early 1980's as latex rubber became popular with fashionistas and club goers and its striking impact in magazine photos garnered it huge press. Street fashion and haute couture both embraced latex clothing and in the years since the early 80's all manner of designers, celebrities, performers, and publications have helped latex clothing enter the edges of mainstream, including, of course, Skin Two magazine. The perfect fit, second skin, visual appeal of latex rubber ensures attention, and some would say a certain empowerment, for the wearer and it has become popular as club wear around the world. Catsuits and dresses are particularly popular and a great advert for the body conscious qualities of latex, but it works equally well across all types of garments; from skirts and leggings to jackets and corsets, and underwear as sexy club wear. Still a fetish favourite latex clothing now crosses, and embraces, most fashion genres, age groups, and tastes.

Why Choose Latex Clothing?
You may be looking at our latex clothing and wondering exactly what it is and how is it different from other fabrics? We have been manufacturing our own latex rubber clothing since 1992 and so now have a specialist knowledge of the material.
Latex rubber is produced from a natural liquid tapped from the rubber tree Hevea Brasiliensis over a period of several years, the tree is unharmed by this procedure and the plantations used are completely renewable. The resulting product is a natural material, formed into sheeting, with outstanding strength and unique elastic properties, it is also environmentally friendly in that it is completely biodegradable.
Our clothing is cut from this top-quality sheeting and then hand crafted into garments using specialist techniques, glues and equipment. We use three different weights of latex rubber to make up our clothing, depending on which each style requires for various aesthetic and durable purposes.
The latex clothing is supplied in its natural format, with a black matt appearance and our moulded rubber will have a slight sheen. You will need to shine both types with a polish such as Skin Two Serum Dress & Shine-Latex Dressing Aid And Polish to get the high gloss finish you can see in our images.
To assist you in putting your rubber on with ease we also recommend our dressing aid Skin Two Serum Dress & Shine-Latex Dressing Aid And Polish which will help you easily slide into the garment as well as moisturizing your skin. Alternatively, you can use talcum powder (preferably non- scented something like Johnson Baby Powder)
