Playful Promises items can take about a week to dispatch - and they're all limited editions that can sell out fast!

This Bettie Page lingerie line is created by Playful Promises; lingerie was clearly a staple of Bettie’s modelling wardrobe, especially in the work she did with fetish photographer Irving Klaw. With a more pin-up and kitsch approach than our own designs, they offer retro fans a different take on the vintage theme - less dangerous, more fun!

The new Bettie Page latex accessories range sets off any retro look with a fun, contemporary edge.

This red latex pencil skirt is very tight fitting and rolls off and on (or at least it does if you use enough talc/lubricant and are wiggly - I've never been able to do this). It is midi to knee length and high waisted and is therefore somewhat constricting once on!

Latex Product Info

Latex accessories will arrive lightly dusted in order to keep their condition, so they will look matt.  To shine latex, wash in lukewarm water, let dry, and then apply latex shiner (silicone spray, lubricant or liquid).

To clean, use warm clean water and water alone.  Wipe off the excess and leave to dry flat away from heat or light. Lightly dust with talc and store in a plastic bag.

Latex is stretchy but can be torn by excessive force or pulls. When wearing a latex garment it will need talc or silicone to move over the skin.

Things to avoid:

Most metals react with latex and produce a stain so avoid contact with piercings or jewelry.

Sunlight, heat and humidity can discolour latex.

Sharp objects can puncture or tear latex

Oil causes latex to degrade so no sensual massages, please!

Don't go near naked flames - it's highly flammable.

So basically, use talc and silicone, keep it in the shade, just use water to clean, don't mix it with oils or jewelry, poke holes in it or set it on fire, and I realise this makes it sound high maintenance but honestly it's not, it's just not the same as satin or velvet so we have to explain.

Sizing Advice

At Hepburn and Leigh, we understand that it can sometimes be hard to work out from photographs whether a certain style will fit. That's why we try to provide the best sizing help possible, and if you can't find the answer to your question on the website, you're always welcome to contact us. There are also individual size charts for each brand linked to at the bottom of the page.

Please remember that sizes are just arbitary numbers and letters - they're not personal; most of our brands are very small and have to make a decision about what size ranges to do based on their market, not on any aesthetics or value-judgements about sizes.

It may well help to measure yourself. On size charts, waist measurements usually refer to the smallest part of your middle, the blue line on the left, and hips around the fullest part of your body, the orange line.

 

 

When measuring for bras, the blue line is the underbust measurement and the orange is the overbust - it's placement may change depending on where the fullest part of your bust is.

Bra Band Sizes

In theory the UK and the USA use the same system for bra band sizes - meausre under your bust and add 4-5 inches to make an even number. In practise, different brands are using different methods and many UK brands, especially full bust brands, use your underbust measurement as your band size. US brands often run a touch larger (though notably not Elila or Rago).

Advice in the item description:

Whenever you click through to see the expanded view of a product, you'll see a description for the product. This should give you the basics - the style, the colour(s), the way the product fastens, the number of suspender clips it might have - and might also give some extra details. For example, if we find that a product is particularly stretchy, or that a style tends to run small, this is where we'll let you know.

Advice by brand:

Where possible, we try to provide the sizing information given by individual brands. Do check which brand you're buying when working out your size, as they can vary between companies, and even between styles. Please click through for more detailed information.
