How do I make sure I buy the right rubber outfit for me?
Rubber and latex clothing can be very expensive, so you’re obviously going to want to buy something you’ll get your money’s worth out of. First of all think about what you want to wear. Is a catsuit that gets you hot under the collar? Then you should save up and get a catsuit. If you’re more into rubber generally or want to experiment then picking up a top that you can wear with other items is a good way to go, then you can build up your outfit from there.
If you’re really stuck and not sure what you want, it’s best to go to a shop in person and try some items on. There are nearly always rubber and latex sellers at fetish fairs is you haven’t got a rubber supplier locally to you.
