The Nell Robe is a signature Betty Blue design. The full length robe is made from a slinky satin and is one of the most popular pieces in the collection. The intricate lace clings on to a woman’s most important curves and manages to reveal and conceal just enough to let the imagination run wild. It’s no wonder this robe sells out fast. It’s perfect for a little extra night time fun or if you just want to look fabulous while relaxing at home.

The Bettie Robe is available in a ravishing peach or leopard print satin or in a warm but stylish red polka dotted fleece fabric. It’s part of the Betty Collection. This style robe features full sleeves and is a full length wrap around. The Peach Bettie Robe radiates a 1940s glamour vibe, while the Fleece Betty Robe gives off an instant classic retro feel in a bright red polka dotted pattern. By cinching the waist, the Bettie Robe accentuates every woman’s hourglass figure.

Corsets are garment tops that are fitted in a way to slim and shape the corset for a sexy feminine aesthetic appeal. They are often made of layers of satin, using ties to weave down the back and tighten them into place. Corsets can be worn with skirts or pants, or even under an outfit as shapewear or with a pair of underwear as a lingerie outfit.
In fashion, particularly styles that channel pin up and retro looks of the 1920s through 1950s, corsets are often mimiced in styles that are made to resemble corsets. An authentic corset is rarely comfortable and often difficult to walk in, and despite looking elegant and charming, is rarely something that women want to wear. Many designers have taken to creating their own variations of corsets, whether they simply resemble the look or are a softer version of the harsh, fitted ties.
If you’re looking for an online boutique that sells authentic corsetry for your evening wear, lingerie wear or costume wear, there are several boutiques that offer endless varieties of styles in plenty of sizes and prices. Maya Hansen is one of the most widely recognized corsetry shops, with nylons, gloves and pasties to accessorize. Her styles are worn by pin up models and burlesque dancers who are into the authentic, well-fitted look. Versatile Corsets, Fairy Gothmother Corsets, Bibian Blue, Sugar Kitty Corsets, and Miss Katie Korsetts are all popular shops that offer custom made varieties. Whether you’re looking for light, airy and feminine styles or fierce, punk and gothic styles, there are custom shops available that will make the perfect corset right down to each inch and piece of thread.
Pin up, retro and burlesque aficionados often have corsets included in their styles. Almost no burlesque dancer goes onstage without the perfect corset, and any woman who wants to add a curvy, feminine look to her lingerie attire has a custom made corset or two thrown into the mix.
If you’re voluptuous and curvy, don’t go thinking a corset isn’t for you. Custom made corsets are made in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, so the right designer will have no problem creating a corset that fits you and your curves perfectly.
Seductive corsets are the main ensemble of the boutique, with satin, elbow-length gloves taking a complementing close second. The corsets can be worn alone or paired with another outfit or skirt, creating a pin up styleoutfit with a modern, sexy look.
There are several different types of corsets available at Slacks Fashion. The Chinese corset resembles popular styles and patterns worn in Asian countries, while the Cinderella corset gives a fairytale vibe to any outfit with deep necklines and sewn on satin accessories.
For more of an “old west” vintage cowgirl style corset, the Western corset is ideal with a sexual yet sporty appeal. The Mermaid and Tiki corsets give a burlesque appeal and come in half-corsets as well, with matching nipple tassels for authentic burlesque fashion. Satin ribbons, red roses and other details make each corset unique with an appeal that is as classic or as sexy as each woman prefers.
The “erotic section” of Slacks Fashion allows customers to create completely customizable corsets, with added details or skimpier styles that cover less skin for burlesque performances or lingerie fetish looks. The woman who already knows what she wants has the option to create the perfect corset from herself, with added guidance from the professionals at Slacks Fashion.
In addition to a wide variety of seductive, burlesque and pin up style corsets, Slacks Fashion also offers accessories to complement the burlesque and pin up lifestyle including satin elbow-length gloves, pasties, kinky neck collars, bondage bracelets, nipple tassels and more. Plush toys are even available for the pin up or fetish aficionado in your life.
Not only are all the products made to fit, handmade and incredibly high quality, but they are tested for durability before being sold to ensure the highest quality corsets in the world. Whether you’re looking to add a corset to your lingerie collection or to wear for a fancy evening out, Slacks Fashion has the perfect, custom-made selection for you.

As one of 10 children of Mexican immigrants, Alicia started sewing her own clothes at age 16 to save cash. She turned her hand me downs into original outfits, and dressed up differently every day, striving to stand apart from the cookie-cutter punk rock scene she was surrounded by. She got tons of attention, negative and positive, so she one day wrote the words ’Stop Staring!’ in black marker on the back of a skirt made out of a shower curtain and her brand name was formed.
As a student at CalState Fullerton Alicia was a big part of the music scene, hanging out with No Doubt and Sublime in their early days. When she heard The Cramps were playing at the Hootenanny Rockabilly Festival, she set up a booth to sell her dresses and was an instant hit. Soon her fun sewing ‘hobby’ had turned into such a profitable business that her accounting teachers encouraged her to drop out of school to pursue fashion design full time, which she did with relish. As her business expanded, so did her figure, which is why Stop Staring! Clothing’s sizes go all the way up to 26. As she became more voluptuous, Alicia honed her skills in custom-tailoring clothes to show off feminine curves, flatten bellies and flatter all sizes. She works hard to make sure that all her designs have classic fit, timeless style and flawless construction so anyone who wears them will feel confident and empowered.
