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.
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.
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.
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...

Below is a size chart to guide you to your best Burnt Soul size along with some information of the different types of fabrics we use.
Fabrics - The amount of stretch you have in different styles will depend on the fabric it's made from.
Foils - We use a few different types of foils in our designs and they all act slightly differently. The black snake print we use for the Siren Catsuits is the most stretchy fabric we use but the rest of the foils tend to have less stretch due to the glue and foil coating.
Prints - The lycra we have recently started using for all our prints is a recycled Life Lycra. This is less stretchy compared to the Lycra we have used previously so if you're a repeat customer, you may feel the difference when buying the same sizes.
Sequins - The sequin fabric we use is embellished onto stretchy mesh so it has less stretch and acts differently compared to the Lycra catsuit. 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!
