Dita Von Teese: Corsets can be pleasurable
Dita Von Teese says she gets a kick out of wearing tight-fitting corsets.
Although the burlesque dancer admits squeezing into one can be difficult, she finds the experience rewarding.
‘Corsets are painful in the same way high heels are,’ she explains.
‘I mean, maybe they’re not as comfortable as wearing trainers. It’s not like a T-shirt!
‘I’m not going to use the word comfortable, but it can be pleasurable.
'It’s an acquired thing – I like the feeling of it.’
And Dita, 35, real name Heather Sweet, says she doesn't need help to put on a her skin-tight lingerie.
‘I don’t let anybody touch my corset strings at all,’ she says. ‘I’ve only ever let a few people lace me in – true experts.
‘I’ve had people claim to be experts in the past, but if they do it wrong they can rip the strings, and cut your skin.’
