A fetish for lingerie is so common it's almost mainstream - and who doesn't like the look of a high-quality set of stockings and suspenders? There's more to the genre than that, though; from g-strings to jock straps, there's something for everyone regardless of their sexual preferences or gender identity. Lingerie can also cross over with other, more specific sexual mores such as leather, latex or nylon.
More and more fetish wear online retailers are offering hard to find sizes and styles, and the possibilities are limitless. Check out the magazine section of the website for several articles focusing on how to make gorgeous lingerie work for you - no matter who you are or what you're looking for.
Fetish wear is different to lingerie in many ways. Lingerie is, in general, intended to be worn under clothing (unless you’re Madonna) and revealed later, whereas you can wear fetish wear out and about. You’ll probably draw a few odd stares depending where you are if you run around town in your latex body suit, but hey we’re not judging!
Fetish wear can also be more subtle, like wearing nylon stockings. For some this is a regular piece of clothing, for others a massive turn on - context and application are what determine the difference. A Dom/me can have their sub wear a collar around in public, and if it’s subtle enough, everyone else will just think it’s a necklace.
The other extreme to kinky clothing are full body suits made from your material of choice - be it leather, latex, rubber or what have you to straight jackets and hobble skirts. The list is limited only to what you find kinky!
Can someone have a lingerie fetish?
You can have a fetish for pretty much anything; lingerie is no different. It is, after all, created to be sexy and turn on for you and your partner(s). Some of the more common lingerie fetishes include nylon stockings, garters and corsets. The material can also be a fetish in itself. Latex, rubber, leather and PVC can all be used to make lingerie, so combine your lust for leather into a kinky lingerie outfit and have some fun!
Where to buy fetish wear and plus-size fetish wear
To discover everything about kinky lingerie and fetish wear, you have to be willing to do a bit of research. You can usually find some kinky lingerie in most sex shops, but you could be limited to the not-so-great-quality of the ’50 Shades’ brand. Unless you happen to live in a big city where there are lots of kinksters, your best bet will be the internet.
There are speciality markets for fetish wear and gear of all sizes. They all, usually, have websites and occasionally will travel around to conferences and fetish festivals to sell their ‘wears’. Leather conferences, rubber and latex rubdowns are always good places to find makers of fetish wear and of course the infamous Folsom Street.
If you’re looking more for plus-size fetish wear, then eBay is another good source to check out. There is an article in the magazine about this, and you can find plenty of places in our database. Starting a thread in the forum is another good way to find shops and talk to new people!
