Burnt Soul Design Lab

The endless possibilities and creations of the Burnt Soul Design Lab

We've been so blown away by the amazing response to our Design Lab, where you guys can create your catsuits, bodysuit, leggings and more before your very eyes.

We've now also added all our Menswear and Kidswear to the Design Lab, so everyone can be decked out in their dream Burnt Soul.

With the options to change the main fabric, panels, sleeves and binding, the possibilities really are endless 🙌

So we thought we'd talk you through everything you need to know when it comes to creating your looks and using the Design Lab to it's full potential... plus some beautiful custom creations you can use for inspiration.

Did you know there are 4,739,328 possibilities of catsuit combinations just for the backless catsuit alone!

Just a few of the Burnt Soul styles ready to be customised.

Why our Design Lab is the new way to shop...

Our Design Lab is something we're so proud of and wanna shout about till the sun goes down... and for these fantastic reasons:

  • Any way you like - With our 'build-a-catsuit' style Design Lab, you can see your creation being made before your very eyes. Mix and match print, patterns, foils and colours till your hearts content and finish with your favourite binding, leg flash and panels till you're completely satisfied.

    Check out our Fabric Pinterest board to see the fabrics in greater detail with maximum shine.
  • Less waste/over production - as each piece is made to order, there's never any excess stock going to waste. The small amount of fabric scraps that are left over are donated to various craft clubs and designers to revamp into more beautiful things.
  • The perfect fit - Not only are the fabrics interchangeable, you also have control over the sizing and fit of your dream Lycra outfit. We offer different leg lengths, body lengths and back styles. Check out our 'Finding Your Body Length' blog for more info on this.
  • Extra special! - As you guys are the designers and there are so many possibilities, you'll be getting a design thats super unique to you.
  • Quality control - Everything is made in house by our tiny team of seamstresses, so you know you're getting the best quality with each and every order. Your design will be carefully cut, sewn, quality check, packaged and sent by us from our Studio in Bristol, UK with a lot of love and care.
  • Eco promise - The majority of our fabrics are made from regenerated plastic waste, so if being eco is your main goal then you can build your design purely from regenerated fabrics... how cool is that? Just look out for the fabrics with this symbol = ♻️. Check out our 'Recycled Plastics for a Sustainable Future' blog for more info on all our amazing fabrics.

How it works

If you're completely new to the Design Lab it can get pretty overwhelming (especially with over 4 million possible combos PER CATSUIT STYLE!) so here's a handy guide to get your started:

After choosing which piece you want to customise, you can then choose your:

  • Size - check out our size guide for all the info you need, make sure to measure yourself to be sure.
  • Body Length - Find out if you have a long or short body here. As a general rule of thumb, unless you've noticed problems with body length in the past, you're most likely a standard body length.
  • Leg Length - for our petite or particularly tall beauties.
  • Production Time - As each piece is made to order, the standard production time is 10 working days before shipping. You can fast track this to 5 or 2 working days at an extra price if you just can't wait.
  • Non-returnable - We want your design to be a match made in Lycra heaven! These are non-returnable to be sure to fully check through before placing your order. This box must be checked before you're taken to the Design Lab!

Tick the non-returnable box to get started with your Customisation

 

So you've got your base, now onto the fun stuff! Choose your main fabric, taking note of the Stretchometre as this is where it will make the difference. (this is the number in brackets when you hover over the fabric).

 

Build a catsuit before your very eyes in the Design Lab

 

Depending on what you're customising (a catsuit, leggings, meggings etc) the options will be different but the fabrics will be the same across the board except in some instances when we think a certain fabric wont be suitable. This means you can match with your partner, mini me or just get the same fabric combo in as many outfits as you like.

 

Something for everyone with our Mens, Kids and Womenswear

A made to order service

If you follow us on socials (and if not, why not! @burntsoulclothing for sparkle, sass and behind the scenes) you'll know that we're a tiny all female team made up of designer and founder Robyn, customer service babe Rachel, sewing bee Hannah and our social media whizz Bea.

Hannah, our sewing queen is usually the one whipping up your creations, sometimes with a lending hand from Robyn and Bea. This ensures our quality control is unmatched as each piece is checked over by two of our team before being packaged and sent to their new home.

We're sure to take loads of pics of each custom to pop up on our Pinterest board as well, so check it out for all the inspo you need to get you started.
