Pasties used to be relegated to burlesque communities and seedy scenes in The Graduate, but over the past few years they’ve been making a huge comeback. We’re now seeing pasties incorporated into traditional lingerie sets as well as being worn alone. Pasties are a great way to jazz up a boudoir look and create some sparkle, but they also work equally well worn alone with nothing but panties and your own body confidence.
First, a quick note: for boudoir shoots, double sided tape works best to attach your pasties. They’ll stay put, but they won’t be as tricky to get off as pasties attached with things like spirit gum can be. Today we’re going to showcase different ways that designers are incorporating pasties into their lines to get you inspired to try out pasties in your boudoir shoot or free time!
This season, Israeli designer Liya Amar used pasties heavily in her bridal line and her regular line to great effect. By using pasties to reflect the sparkle of Swarovski crystals, she creates an extra layer of visual interest.
Toad Lille is a wonderful handmade lingerie designer who makes sensuality classy all over again. Her pieces incorporate ties, cutouts, and pasties while creating a sense of luxury and supportive structure. The pasties in this Minx set help create more coverage, all while giving the set a seductive sparkle.
Frantic about Frances is a label that creates beautiful handmade lingerie with vintage inspired fabrics. Bullet bras, suspender belts, and all kinds of panties are part of her arsenal, but she also makes a set of handmade pasties to go with each of her sets. I love this look because it proves that pasties can be both sexy and sweet! Her Roses in the Parlour set is a perfect example of how to take pasties in a new direction.
Gothfox is a leader in the pastie market, and makes some amazingly artistic creations. They create heavy duty pasties for performances as well as more casual ones for lingerie fans. Their signature looks are always strong, and won’t appeal to all. I really love their modern take on boudoir, and if you want to make a statement then this is the brand to look to.
