Performance Catsuits: Aerial Silks + Hoop Outfits

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, or want to commission something bespoke - drop us a note here.


Burnt Soul Trixie Backless Catsuit Aerial Hoop

Jewel or Print Fabric?

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. Please note, if you go against advice, or order without checking, non advised items are non returnable.

Aerial Hoop vs Aerial Silk

If you're an Aerial Hoop performer there tend 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.

Reflective Panelling

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 reflective the light just so. With continued rubbing from performance equipment like Silks this coating can come away. This is why we recommend the following...

Made For You

Please add this product to your order if you'd like a Burnt Soul catsuit as an Aerial Outfit, we can make one especially for you that will last you time and time again. We'll exchange the reflective panelling for a more durable silver or iridescent dot shine that will last for longer to make sure you get as much love out of your new Burnt Soul as possible. Please note that because these are made in-house, specifically for you, there may be up to 6 working days wait. If you need it sooner let us know here and we'll do our best to sort something out!

Hi, just wondering whether you can do the black backless siren catsuit with a plain black material instead of what looks like snake print? I need this catsuit for aerial hoop and silks too. I would like the gold and white bits as they are but just the black material changed if possible?
Thanks, Nicole

Our Top 10 Festival Fashion Hot Picks for 2018

The Summer Festival Season quick approaching means outfit planning is on the agenda. Here are our top 10 hot picks for the best festival fashion finds to keep you looking and feeling top of your game as you party the Summer away!


Below is a size chart to guide you to your best Burnt Soul size.

Stretch and flex - The amount of stretch you have in different styles will depend on the spandex it's made from. The printed and plain Lycra offers the most amount of stretch and flexibility, with the foiled fabrics offering slightly less due to the glue that's applied for foiling. The sequin fabrics are also less stretchy, and whilst we have tried to allow for this in the sizing, if you're in between sizing then we suggest going for the larger size.

Leg length - All of the legs are cut more on the longer side and are comfortably suitable for an inside seam of 28"-35". Rebecca pictured here is 5'5" and we did roll these under by a few inches. If you want these tailored to your length click here to add an alteration along with the purchase of your catsuit. This will make the piece non-returnable.

Long torso - Due to the cut, the backless catsuits offer a lot more give so these are recommended for a longer body. We will also be offering torso alterations very soon!

Please contact us for more information or advice on sizing.
