Earlier this month we collaborated with our friends over at Eco Stardust to show you JUST how good environmentally friendly fashion and beauty choices make you feel... and look! With biodegradable glitter and fully recyclable packaging, and catsuits using recycled fabrics, you can absolutely have it all this festival season, without it costing the earth!
Read on below to find out all about the catsuits and glitters in the video, and exactly what makes them eco!
We've recently discovered a whole new kind of fabric that is just as soft and durable as our past high-quality Lycra base, except this time, it's made from 100% recycled materials. It's also twice as resistant chlorine and suncream for those beach babies! We are shifting over to this new eco-fabric wherever possible, and you'll see more and more of it in collections to come.
The companies making waves the Lycra industry are able to reduce theGlobal Warming Potential of making nylon (the fibre used to create Lycra) by up to 80%, saving 70,000 barrels of oil per 10,000 tons, vast amounts of water, and making a huge difference for our future in recycling waste materials into brand new yarns!
Our black lycra, that you can see in our Joan Collins Long Sleeved Catsuit, is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. The company who creates the fibre has recycled over 10 billion plastic bottles into the fabric in the past 10 years.
Approximately 640k tons of fishing nets are discarded in the ocean each year, making up 1/10 of all marine waste. These nets stay in the sea and affect the ecosystem for hundreds of years and are deadly for whales, turtles and other sea creatures. It's super important that we address this, and on top of this, work towards positive ways to use all these waste plastics, instead of throwing them into landfill or burning them, once they are no longer useful in their original form.
A team called The Healthy Seas take divers out to collect waste nets in North, Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea, which are then taken to be cleaned, processed and melted down in a recycling plant and turned into yarn. Then, they travel to Italy where they take on a new life as the Lycra you know and love!
Keeping the eco spirit the whole way through, when printing our colourful designs, there's no water used. Usually, the dyeing process can waste huge amounts of water (making one pair of Levis uses 505 gallons for example), so by reducing this where possible, our Catsuits, Leggings and Bodies are a great choice for those of you who want to shop consciously and save the planet while feeling and looking amazing!
Everyone loves a bit of glitter at festivals, but if you also care about the litter you leave behind perhaps you should switch to EcoStardust Glitter - the biodegradable alternative to plastic glitter. We sell Biodegradable Glitter known as Bioglitter or eco-glitter in recycled and easily recyclable packaging in order to minimise plastic and waste.
Unlike conventional glitter, Bioglitter uses a plant-derived material as its basis rather than polyester and will biodegrade into harmless substances in the natural environment. Once it enters a farmer’s field or wastewater, microbes will consume the biodegradable content causing it to biodegrade. Traditional plastic glitter can take hundreds of years to biodegrade whereas Bioglitter can biodegrade in freshwater within a couple of months!
All of our glitters either comes in recyclable aluminium tins or biodegradable grip seal bags. Our aluminium tins can be kept and refilled or recycled in your home recycling bins and they are also super lightweight making them easy to carry to festivals or in your handbag.
Or you can choose our biodegradable grip seal bags (these can be disposed of in your normal waste bin.) which are sold in a wide range of sizes from 1g up to 100g for all you super glitter crazed people. You can find out more about our packaging here.
With 15 different colours available in six different sizes there is a lot to choose from. On top of this, we offer our range of signature blends hand blended in our Bristol HQ so you only need one pot while on the go.
From a male acrobat in the 1900s to every festival stage and yoga studio near you. Find out who pioneered the first onesie and how the catsuit has shaped the fashion and costume industry, becoming a fabulous favourite along the way...
Welcome to our new blog featuring cool inspirational women who are paving their own way, having honest conversations and generally being all round a bit bad ass!! First up we have Natalie AKA the woman behind Style Me Sunday...
This is my 4th BS catsuit and the first one that’s backless. Was a bit worried about not having a bra but it holds me in perfectly and as with all their catsuits, it fits like a glove. The colours are bright and fun. It’s a vibrant beauty 😍 Can’t wait to wear it this festival season!
So pleased with the quality of these leggings. They fit perfectly and are so flattering. I would never have worn leggings before as they've never done me any favours but these are sooo good. Definitely recommend as look great on all shapes.
Customer service is amazing too! ☺
Just loved the way this made me feel. I am not a small girl and tried it out of curiosity really but now I never really want to take it off. It sucks me in in all the right places and makes me feel super confident. So comfy as well! 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
I love these leggings!! This is my second pair of leggings from burnt soul and they are by far the best I've ever bought. They fit amazingly well and look great. Pattern is amazing, already had loads of compliments on them. Just remember to wear white underwear with these leggings
I seem to have an ever growing collection of the catsuits, this one is definitely one of my favourites, such a flattering fit, so so SO many compliments whilst wearing it, versatile so have worn it day into night! I love it so much, thank you again! Definite Sandy from grease vibes, love love love!
I have gained some wait coming through my 30's, and shamefully (as I know I shouldn't care) ... my usual festival outfits aren't making me feel as WOW as they used to, plus most don't fit. I have bought 2 catsuits and they are THE MOST FLATTERING AND FREEING garments... I waited for the sale as not on a huge income or working many hours but honestly now I've tried one I would pay full price for another one.
I was very pleased with the quality and make of the Debi flip catsuit. The fabric was great the colour of the leopard print pops. I loved the mesh insert detail on the leg. Sadly I had to return the catsuit because it was too big.
I am a size 16 and I ordered a size 16-18.
The customer service was excellent returning the cast suit was made very very easy and the money was put promptly back into my account.
I will definitely shop with Burnt sole again.
Keep up the good work you have a fantastic product
Brought this along with the tinker suit in the sale, both bargains by the way. Love these catsuit and have brought 3 in 7 days! Hugs the body like a dream and second skin. Looking forward the summer months and wearing these to kisstory and summer festivals.
I bought this catsuit for an upcoming aerial competition and showcase after admiring the Burnt Soul collection for ages. I got the size 10-12 and it fits perfectly! I'm quite tall (5' 8") and I often struggle to find jeans or trousers that fit well on length, and these were spot on! The fit is also very flattering! The material feels great and it's very easy to move in. I can't wait to wear it for the performances! Thank you, Burnt Soul!
After newly discovering Burnt Soul catsuits, I was excited to get my first catsuit. Item arrived extremely quickly, the very next day. The materials and build of this particular catsuit, are fantastic! It fits like a glove and the free nipple pasties are a nice bonus. Extremely comfortable and I’m looking forward to wearing this at Kisstory very soon. The first of many catsuits I suspect!
I was a little hesitant of the new design. I have quite a straight up and down body and love how the chevrons in the classic catsuits give me a waist! But wow, I feel amazing in my new flip outfit. Super hugging, flattering, and comfy...I've got it on now and I'm not even going out. It's another win win! Thank you ladies!
OMFG I love them so so so so so soooooooooo much! The fit is perfect and hold you in, in all the right places. They are amazing for brightening up the BORING school run and I’ve just started aerial hoop and bloody LOVE wearing them for that! Love all of my burnt soul gear!!! I NEED MORE!!!
My collection of Burnt Soul Catsuits is growing - I’ve now lost count. I lobe them all and this one is no exception. The print is amazing, the quality of fabric is second to non.
What more can I say - if you haven’t got one yet, you don’t know what your missing. ❤️❤️
I feel fantastic in the bodysuit, can’t wait to wear it. Haha i would love to wear it everyday!
Customer service is great! I was doubting about sizing after i already placed my order, contacted customer service last minute and they’re great! They gave me great advice and changed the size for me! I’m already looking forward to order more in the future!
My wife bought herself one of your catsuits a while back and we both love it! Her catsuit gets a lot of attention from fellow partygoers every time she wears it out. She loves hers so much that she wanted me to have one to love for myself! I'm glad I listened to her because it just arrived (ordered Sunday night, arrived Tuesday) and it's amazing!
I (incorrectly) thought these catsuits were best suited to women's bodies, but we were both surprised how great this looks on me as a man. The measurement/size guide suggested exactly the right size for me- it looks great, fits perfectly and is amazingly comfortable! There are a couple of male models in the galleries on other designs, so you can see that these catsuits look fierce on guys too! The material just works and looks incredible on anyone! So to any guys out there wondering, just go for it!
It being made of recycled materials was also a really big factor for me. It's great that you guys do this, keep it up!
I can't wait take it out! Festival season can't come soon enough!
I have two burnt soul pieces and they won’t be the only two I hope! I bloody love them! I’m a hour glass figure with bum, tits, hips and bits but there sooooo flattering to wear and sooooooo comfy! They can be dressed up or down they just fab and I always get compliments when I wear them!
They've got a teeny bit less stretch than a normal legging but it actually makes them feel higher quality. One note is they do roll a bit at the top of you're bending and stretching but they flatter so well so they're a bit more style than practical. Completely in love with them though and plan to wear them everywhere!
I really like how versatile this style is, have gotten a lot of wear out of it already. The only slight disappointment is that the fit on this catsuit is bigger than my other Burnt Soul catsuit. My other one is a 6-8 and fits perfectly, but I think I should have gone for 4-6 in this style.
