In the past it was common for people who had a fetish, particularly dreaming to become a model, to hide this secret behind closed doors. Recently, however, the fashion industry brought out collections made out of latex materials. Soon after that, wearing latex garments seemed to become a fad.
Latex is a type of rubber but is thinner and shinier. While traditionally, rubber was used as protective clothing with popular products being gas masks and boots. Over the years its use has evolved and is now used for clothing with high fashion brands joining the band wagon, thereby immortalizing the latex fashion industry. Before this even happened, however, the use of latex was more closely associated with fetish fashion quite popular among BDSM practitioners. For dramatic appearances, it was also used by couturiers because of its characteristic of clinging to the body like a “second skin”.
If you will recall, BDSM, which stands for Bondage, Domination, Sadism, and Masochism, movies always had the model wear garments made out of latex. Even the simple body restraints seemed to be made from latex. Using these garments while filming seemed to not be an issue because the tightness of the latex garment was treated as some kind of sexual bondage, thereby giving her the ability to perform accordingly. That is the reason why pornography movies always had their actors were the sexy latex clothing.
The natural color of latex is translucent but the most common latex clothing comes in black as well as bright color such as red. When in a photo shoot, it is usually difficult for the model to put on their latex outfit, they usually need an assistant to help them suit up. This is because latex has a strong friction against dry skin. To solve this, stylists cover the body of the model in power or spread some lubricant to provide for a slippery base to which the latex will glide over.
Susan Wayland, a popular latex model, was once quoted as saying that modeling in latex fashion was something new, exciting, as well as interesting in such a way that she totally became addicted to using the material all the time during photo shoots. If you will look at her site, you will notice that in most, if not all, of Susan’s photos she is seen wearing latex clothing. This is because, for Susan, she believes that every latex touch feels more intense, incredibly sexy, and more feminine. Because a latex model like Susan Wayland believes in the beauty of latex garments, more and more women are no longer apprehensive in voicing out their interests in wearing this material.
Nowadays, there are many places where you can find latex garments. Most of these, however, because of its sexual orientation, can be found in adult shops or internet auction sites.There are many kind of latex garment like corsets, body suits, and the like just like normal clothing style. Of course, they may not be the fashion you would want to wear everyday, but still, because of the design effort and structural composition put into the pieces, you would definitely want to try owning a piece. Remember, these are already considered fashion statements with most of Hollywood women, and popular latex models like Susan, having been seen wearing perhaps a latex bra top, a latex pantsuit, and a latex corset as part of their ordinary everyday wardrobe.
As a testament to the growing popularity of latex fashion, apart from Susan Wayland’s website, there have been several Hollywood movies that showcased the versatility of the garment.
You cannot deny the fact that latex clothing will continue to evolve and be accepted as part of society’s norm. Whatever be the result, the ladylike femininity combined with the fierce sexuality of wearing a latex garment, as exemplified by a latex model, will never disappoint to bring out the best of the female form.
