We love our Aerial Hoop and Aerial Silk communities, and are always in awe of what you guys get up to when we're tagged in a picture! We've been getting a few questions from you recently about which of our catsuits and bodysuits are most suitable for your performances, so we wanted to give you guys our best advice for when you're choosing an item.
Have a read below before choosing your Burnt Soul, and if you have any further questions, drop us a note here.
Whilst our glittery jewel pieces look ultra-special under stage lights, due to the friction of Silks and Hoops against the body, our printed pieces are the best option for longevity. Due to the holographic coating on the spandex, it will inevitably get worn in the places the fabric rubs with the hoops and silks. Some of our foiled and glittery fabrics are more hardwearing than others though so if you just can't resist looking like a shooting star then please get in touch for more advice before purchasing.
For our printed pieces we use Eco Lycra which is a very hard-wearing fabric that takes dye pigments excellently; giving prints the pop (and even glow with our UV prints) with no pilling or bagging.
If you're an Aerial Hoop performer there tends to be less issues, just be aware that if you find yourself using lycra covered areas for grip, this may rub on coated fabric and remove the shine eventually. With Aerial Silk there tends to be more friction, and so more care needs to be taken.
Our signature Reflective hip panels are perfect for shining bright wherever you go, but when it comes to activities that require endurance fabrics, they can be damaged by intense friction. The reflective fabric is made from coating the lycra with a binding glue and thousands of tiny glass beads that reflect the light just so. With continued rubbing from performance equipment like Silks, this coating can come away.
