Latex Clothing: Your Second Skin
Latex clothing definitely adds something special to your sex life. Here's how to use and maintain this highly erotic accessory.

Connoisseurs know it: latex or rubber clothing is super erotic. Not only to look at, but also to wear. It feels like a second skin and is available in all sorts of colors — from strict black to exciting red, and everything in between. How do you put it on, and how do you maintain your latex clothing?

Why is Latex so Popular?

Latex initially feels very cold on your body, but within a few minutes the material has reached your body temperature, and you hardly feel that you are wearing anything anymore. The erotic feeling comes when someone touches you, and you feel a tingling sensation shoot through your whole body.

It is also super erotic to see: it envelops your body and accentuates all the desired curves while at the same time, the material smoothes out the undesired folds. Because of these unique properties of the material, latex clothing is often used in the world of BDSM.

How Do You Put on Latex?

In any case, be careful with long nails, jewelry, buckles, etc. so as not to damage the latex. Use a silicone lubricant (both on clothing and your skin) to facilitate putting on. Do not pull a tip, but grab large parts or go with your hand between the latex and the skin to get everything a bit higher.

You don't wear latex pants like 'normal' pants. It sticks directly to your body so when you put it on, you have to move the latex and guide it to where you want it to sit.

Men's shirt
Put on the shirt and do not close the zipper yet. Place seams of the shoulders in the right place and then tighten the latex. Then, from top to bottom, tighten the material down to the hip. If the center seam at the back is also good, the zipper can then be closed.

Keep the legs separate from your thighs and guide it up to the right place. Then pull the shorts over the buttocks.

If the zipper is at the front: Put on the dress, tighten the back well, and then close the zipper. Lift your breasts if necessary.

If the zipper on the back, then you may need some help to rub or pull the back tight. Make sure the front is going straight up and have someone help you zip the back. If the dress sticks to your thighs, hold the material and lift it up to your hips. Make sure your breasts fit properly. Then smooth the dress down tightly.

Tips for Putting On

  • Make sure that the seams of the clothes are in the middle. Those are your benchmarks. Once attached and 'set,' it is almost impossible to get it straight.
  • For long trousers or leggings: make sure the feet first come through the bottom of the legs. Push the rolled up legs of the leggings or long pants over the heels.
  • Close a zipper straight up. Is that not entirely possible? If we assume that the clothes are the right size and not too small: remove some latex just next to the zipper so that you have some stretch there. Make sure no skin gets in! Keep the zipper separate from the skin.
  • Is something wrong? With a flat hand, carefully move the latex to where you want it. Do not pull the latex!

Taking off latex clothing is easiest in the shower by letting water run between the outfit and your skin.

Latex maintenance

  • Wash the clothing in warm water. Use some soap or detergent such as Dreft.
  • Rinse well.
  • Let the clothes dry while hanging, preferably on a wooden hanger and in the dark.
  • Once dry, sprinkle the inside and outside with talcum powder. This keeps the latex flexible.
  • Store the clothing in the dark, preferably in a low-air (black) bag. If you use a plastic bag, first wrap your clothes in chlorine-free paper.

Tips for Wearing and Using Latex Clothing

  • Avoid massage oil, cream, and body lotion.
  • Do not use baby shampoo to wash latex clothes.
  • Wash yourself well before putting on latex clothing.
  • Do not use plastic hangers, plastic storage covers, or plastic bags.
  • Avoid contact with (bronze and copper-colored) metal, lacquer clothing, and leather. With light colors, brown stains can occur under the influence of sweat, metal, nickel, or copper (jewelry, benches, etc.).
  • Latex and air are not a good match.
  • If your latex comes into contact with water, stains may occur. When it is dry, the stains disappear again.
  • A maintenance product for latex is, for example, Vivishine.
  • Cover metal parts when storing.
  • Store colored latex separately.
  • If the clothing does break, it can be repaired in certain cases. Have a specialist look at this.
