(If you've tried it) Do you like Datex? Do you find the lining makes wear easier / better / more comortable? Or does the lining get in the way of the sensation of wearing latex?
Yes! I love wearing datex. The lining is definitely a good thing, especially for more 'casual' or first time latex wearers (which lets face it, are the ones likely to buy from Lovehoney rather than a latex specalist right?). I don't feel like the lining 'gets in the way', it actually doesn't feel that different to me. I'm too busy feeling extremely comfortable and smiling at how quickly and easilly I got dressed up to be thinking 'oh, this is different, it's wrong'. It still has that cling and hug and second skin feeling of latex in my opinion so I still get the feel I like from it :)
When you wear latex, what's your main reason for wearing it? (eg: the look and fit, the sensation of rubber against your skin...)
The look and fit, mostly. I love the natural second skin feeling (don't know how else to describe it) and found I got that in datex too.
Would you buy coloured latex/datex clothing?
Yes, absolutely. Bright colours or pastel colours are both beautiful in latex/datex. Black with colour details is stunning :)
Do you expect to pay more or less for datex?
More, since a datex dress is a latex dress with an extra lining I expect to pay for the extra lining.
Thinking about maximum coverage (and therefore maximum fabric used), what price bracket would you be willing to pay for a latex catsuit?
For an off the shelf one from Lovehoney, I'm not sure as I would rather buy from a dedicated supplier to get made to measure as to me a full latex catsuit would be very expensive, like £250+ expensive. I am not sure I would pay that for anything less than a made just for me version though.
Same question again, but for a datex catsuit?
The same plus the cost of the lining, which I have no idea of lol. I'd gladly pay more for a datex catsuit as the comfort would make cat suits actually appeal to me on a practical level.
When shopping for fetish clothing (latex / PVC / datex / wet look etc) online, do you browse Lovehoney? Or do you head straight to specialist suppliers?
For latex I'm sorry to say I'd look at a specialist supplier, mostly because I want styles and colours you do not stock and because I have a couple of favourite latex designers, but also for the made to measure service. Latex isn't something I'd buy in a generic size medium or whatever unless I was really sure of the fit or it was appropriately cheap that I wouldn't mind a less than perfect fit for the bargain. For anything else (including datex), I'd look here.
