Only a small percentage of submissions get published on the site. Lacroix started Fetwear, a full-line adult shop, with her husband in 2003. They saw a need for such a business in their area and wanted to offer the community a selection of sexy wares in a cozy, inviting atmosphere.

The Truth about Latex

Have you ever wanted to experience latex... or maybe you are wondering what all the fuss is about. In my experience, you just have to try it. Many people think you will sweat buckets, and never give it a second thought. I am here to encourage you to give it that second thought. Yes, because latex does not breath you will sweat, BUT you don't typically notice you are sweaty until you take off the garment. What you will notice is how it brings shape to your body, hugs all the right curves and holds everything up & in. Here are some facts you should know: Latex fashions should be treated with the same care you would give your best suit, silk shirt or fine evening dress. Although latex is less subject to damage than silk, proper care will keep your latex looking its best for years to come. Make sure to buy the correct fit, as one size does not fit all. If you purchase a garment that is too small, not only will you be uncomfortable, your garment will break down much sooner from undue stress. When dressing, use talc on your body as well as inside the garment as this will help you into your garment without pulling on your body hair or sticking to your skin. If you prefer, you may use a silicone lubricant. Never leave garments unwashed for extended periods as body oils will break down your latex over time. Wash with mild soap (Original Ivory liquid is a good choice), dry inside & out, then dust with talc, which prevents your garment from sticking to itself, then hang or roll for storage. Avoid contact with sharp edges, jewelry, long nails etc. Also be careful not to come into contact with inks or coins, as light colored latex will stain. To shine your garment you have a couple of choices. Black Beauty latex polish which leaves a smooth dry finish, or silicone lubricant, which will create a more vibrant sheen but it does leave a slippery surface. Do not use products meant for tires, as many contain oils, which will break down your latex. For more in depth information about latex care, the book “Leather and Latex Care” by Kelly J. Thibault is available for purchase.

Afternoon kinksters, If you've ever wanted to try out the violet wand, now is your chance. Fetwear has been asked to do a violet wand demo at this month's Rascals party, which is Saturday July 23rd. (Check out the link for the address and directions). We will be set up from 8pm - 10pm, but the demo won't take that long, which leaves time for anyone who's interested to experience the sensations of the wand first hand. If you are already receiving our newsletter, (if not you may subscribe here), you will be expecting to see me, violet wand in hand, with the lovely Annie as my eager stunt bottom. Unfortunately, I have injured my knee and will not be performing the demo :-( Not to worry, I have asked our good friend Derrill to perform the demo, and he has so graciously accepted. I have to admit, I was rather scared to be the one holding the wand. Hope to see you all out tomorrow night! #### http://www.fetwear.com/index2.html
