In trippy prints and holographic foils and glitters, Vibedration has got the look down too, their bags really light up and work SO well with our holographic reflective catsuits.
As any regular festival-goer knows, when the sun sets the party doesn't stop and neither should your look! The reflective spandex panels in our clothing really come to life under a camera flash or festival lights and some of our fabrics even glow under UV light but if you want to add to your nighttime look then here are some options to help you stand out in the dark.
Anything UV reactive is always a winner so why not grab some UV face paints by the guys over at Moon Glow. They offer 16 incredible UV shades from pastel pinks to vibrant violets and they are ethically made in the UK which is a massive thumbs up for us 👍
If you want to take it that one step further they also have UV eyeliners, lipsticks, nail varnishes, hair streaks and soo much more to keep you glowing through

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!
Please contact us for more information or advice on sizing.
