Teeny Weeny Latex Bikini

The Pink Galette Bra & Tanga set from Liberator Bedroom Adventure Gear is one heck of an ambitious offering. After conquering sex furniture, throes, restraints and other sexy trinkets, Liberator forges boldly ahead into the creation of sexy, functional latex lingerie - no novice's feat! But as they have proved so many times in the past, Liberator is a company capable of virtually anything, and this set is a crowning achievement that competes with the Wedge and Throe in its perfection.

extremely useful review
Liberator Bedroom Adventure Gear has done it again, but this time around Liberator takes a break from handy sex furniture shapes and fluid defying throes to try their hand at something very different: lingerie. And like everything else made by this company, the Pink Galette Latex Bra & Tanga set is as durable, well-made, functional and sexy as they come. This beautiful latex two piece ensemble is comfortable and beautiful and makes the wearer feel like some kind of pink, frosty dessert.

The bra and tanga set is made from a durable latex which is quite thick and tear-resistant, although Liberator does not list the exact thickness of the material. However, if your fear is puncture or tearing then you can rest easy because as you can see in the video this is some heavy duty stuff. Once it's on, I've found the top and bottom can handle a fair amount of stretching and stress without any trouble. The difficulty is with putting it on; the latex bottoms can be stepped into easily enough (with some lubrication) but the bra is much more tricky on account of its thick, stubborn back panel and thin, delicate shoulder straps. If it is at all possible you may want to commission some assistance in getting into your top, although I've done it successfully alone. Just keep in mind that tugging too hard or snagging a long fingernail in this material could very well be the end of your fabulous (and pricey!) set so use caution! Latex repair sets can be purchased but why not avoid that mess altogether, right?

One of the best ways to avoid trouble with your set is to get the size that fits you best!

SMALL
Size: 4-6
Bust: 34
Waist: 26
Hip: 36

MEDIUM
Size: 6-8
Bust: 36
Waist: 28
Hip: 38

LARGE
Size: 8-10
Bust: 38
Waist: 30
Hip: 40

The Liberator website carries up to a 2XL size, but as Edenfantasys just carries small, medium and large this is all I will list. Keep in mind when ordering that latex is a very taut and elastic material that will always run a bit on the smaller side rather than larger. I ordered my set in a medium because those measurements very closely matched my body's, but the bottoms left me with a bit of muffin top. Not so much that it ruined the set, but take into account that these measurements only account for three areas of the body. They can't and will not account for, say, the love handles that I have, or the extra padding you might have on your booty. It's important to make educated guesses about how your body's nuances may affect the look and wear of these garments!

Overall, I was very pleased with my set. The underwire in the bra provided just the tiniest bit of lift to combat the sports-bra effect of the super tight latex. This effect is probably a little bit better suited to medium sized breasts. Smaller breasts will likely be sort of flattened out by the tight fit, whereas large breasts will probably not find the kind of lift and support needed to flatter their shape. Medium breasts, however, will be lifted just enough and the tight fit pushes the breasts together creating the effect of rather nice cleavage. My tanga companion piece was a little bit more trying. The waist gave me an awful case of muffin top in which my love handles - which mind you, are not so terrible in the first place - look quite marshmellow-y and full by squashing down the skin beneath the waistband. If this is an area of your body that you are self-conscious of, the tanga in this set may not flatter you the way that you desire. I also found the butt of these was just the tiniest bit too large. Not saggy or floppy in the least, just slightly less fitted than I'd like. But other than these small problems I absolutely loved the bottoms - hello, that ruching? Adorable! Makes anyone's butt look cute as a button!

COLOR NOTE: The trim is not a warm cadmium red as shown in the photos. It is instead a cool, bluish red that is called "raspberry" by the Liberator site that you can see more clearly in my video. I bought these stockings to go with my bra and tanga and they matched terribly. Be advised that white or black stockings might pair better here; I would avoid pink.
Experience
Getting into these pieces is probably the worst thing about them. Liberator includes a small sample of Pjur Bodyglide silicone lubricant which should get you pretty far since a little bit silicone lube goes a long way. You can also use other pure silicone lubes without additives - remember that a true silicone lube should only have three ingredients! When your set arrives it will smell like a latex doctor's glove and be just as powdery and dry looking. To give your lingerie some sexy sheen you'll want to rub small amounts of lube onto the surface of the bra and tanga working section by section. You can be a bit more liberal in lubing up the inside to aid you in sliding into your clothes. You can also use talc powder to ease the friction; talc powder also helps decrease the sweating you'll be doing under your very un-breathing latex panties. Whatever you do, do NOT slide into this without any help. It's just asking for trouble! Not only will you probably end up rubbing your skin the wrong way and accidentally catching on body hair, but you're far more likely to tear your latex. Without lube the latex is more likely to bunch up and "stick" to your body instead of sliding along into place. Take heed: lube is, yet again, a life saving substance!

Oh man. I have admittedly little experience with latex. I've owned a couple of little latex BDSM accessories before but never have I had the pleasure of actually donning a full latex outfit. It's wonderful! It feels every bit as cool as it looks and finally, after researching it and stalking websites, I get to squeak around in the glorious shiny stuff. It's a feeling unlike any other...slick and light, but resistant and dense. Sexy and coy and yet grave and medicinal. It conjures up so many conflicting and exciting feelings for myself and my partner, who was as happy as a pig in mud on his knees kissing my latex butt :) According to him, there's something about latex that just makes him feel "subby" and likewise for myself, there's something about latex that makes me feel powerful. Are these feelings probably just the product of me seeing one too many performances of the Rocky Horror Picture Show and bad femdom porno? Perhaps. But nevertheless, man oh man is latex awesome for BDSM! Even just asking your bottoming partner to diligently polish your clothing is awfully nice. If you have even the slightest inclination or curiosity then I highly recommend giving this set a shot, seriously!

Latex is a very delicate material, so in addition to taking care to slip into it delicately you should also be gentle in your washing. Latex should never be washed with detergents or soaps of any kind, but rather wiped down with a soft damp cloth and patted dry. Latex should also not be exposed to oil as this can degrade it over time. Store your latex in a cool and dry place out of direct sunlight.
Follow-up commentary
This is such a fabulous set. My only crisis with this thing has been storage - I have no idea how to keep it! It's been in the original cardboard box it came in for two months now and the box is showing serious signs of wear. If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them! I almost want to get another Devine Carry-on just to keep this in because it's so gorgeous and I don't want it to get hurt!

Cleaning and shining this has not only been easy, but rather fun and I've come to really enjoy the ritual of glossing this set up. I really wanted to try latex out to see if it did it for me. While I can't say the mere sight and smell of it makes me salivate the way it does some folks, I've really come to appreciate this sexy, stretchy and vaguely skin-like material. This will probably not be my last latex purchase but it was an EXCELLENT place to start!
