Running Away to the Circus

Have you got what it takes to be a circus performer?

Sometimes… all the time, it seems like a torturous task going the gym to workout, ready to replicate a bond girl coming out of the ocean in Summer, but doing the same repetitive workouts can get tiresome.  So, as an alternative we’ve been looking into other methods of fitness classes, and we don’t mean Zumba or Legs, Bums and Tums because, quite frankly, all that does is make us jiggle and giggle.

For those who agree with the above, and can be quite the entertainer at times, we announce aerial fitness! A new fitness craze was needed and what better than to pretend you’re a sexy circus acrobatic performer? But be warned, you won’t look as glamorous as a Cirque du Soleil professional right away, it takes some time working on those core muscles, but you sure will look as entertaining!

If you can’t master the aerial hoop, silks or trapeze, don’t fret because you can still fulfill your circus performer dream. Magic is becoming very popular within the last few years, with televised competitions and entertainment shows; Killer Magic and Dynamo so there still is a place for you in the circus!

The next step is to put on our Peek and Beau Phoebe Wine and Tassel set with beautiful hand-dyed fringing on each individual garment making it that extra bit more special! Take a step back, whip out a few card tricks or just wave your hands around; they have assistants in a circus, right?

Peek & Beau Phoebe Wine & Black Tassel Bra £18, Peek & Beau Phoebe Wine & Black Tassel Briefs £12

With the aim to look nice and naughty for your performance, and with even more fringing, the Bluebella Sasha Body is sheer and seductive with its halter-neck and cut out style. This little number will definitely keep all eyes on you.

Or if you’re more of a tease then enter the hoochie coochie tent and give burlesque a try with my favourite, the Matilde Nipple Tassels. I adore the heart shape filled with detailed individual roses and a tassel to finish, so cheeky how could you say no?

Matilde Nipple Tassels Black Rose £12

Or, if you just want to embody the circus... in your pants (?!) go for our cute Circus Tins! There's three different "performers" to go for, The Fire Girl with a spotty chiffon brief, The Hoop Girl with a neon pink thong or The Trapeze Girl with a black tasseled brief!

Look closely at the naughty illustrations (done by local artist Karina Akopyan) on the side of the tins ;)

Circus Tins £20 each
