What is latex?

Our Guide to Latex Grade


Tailored Latex
Tailored latex clothing is made from latex sheeting. The Latex Store uses 4D rubber for all of our tailored items. This latex sheeting is produced have a greater uniformity than molded latex in thickness and overall quality. The .02" (.4 mm) gauge is the standard thickness we use for latex clothing. Even though standard tailored latex is slightly thinner than the standard molded latex, "sheet latex" is usually more resistant to tearing than molded latex. The garment creation process is different, the stress points on the garment have glued seams, which means there are multiple layers of latex at each point. Tailored latex clothing is made like traditional clothing; patterns are used on latex sheets to cut the garment. But unlike regular clothing, the latex pieces are generally glued (sometimes sewn) together Tailored garments are just that, tailored to fit better. We control the size and fit of garment therefore you will receive a garment that fits "better".

The Latex Store uses 4D Rubber with most of our tailored products.

Molded Latex
Molded latex clothing is made from shaped molds that are dipped into a liquid latex tank. The garment thickness is influenced by several factors like the amount of time the latex stays on the mold, the ambient temperature and humidity during fabrication. Therefore, the thickness variance is greater with molded latex than tailored latex. In can in fact vary from day to day. Therefore, in our molded latex garment description, the latex thickness given is an average since the thickness uniformity throughout the garment can vary. The standard thickness of molded is generally greater than that of tailored latex. The whole garment (mold) is dipped into the latex and is therefore a one-piece item with no seams, unlike tailored garments created from several pieces glued together. In general, one-piece molded garments are less anatomically adjusted to the body than their tailored counterparts. The making of molded latex clothing is less labor intensive and therefore is normally less expensive than tailored latex clothing. Toys, gloves and most fetish wear (i.e. briefs with anal plug) are generally made from molded latex.

Premium Molded Latex
Premium molded latex is manufactured the same way Molded Latex is, however, premium latex products are produced in small batches, on more modern molds in a more precise climate controlled environment. The result is a smoother finish, and better fit.

How do I find my size?


Each of our products has an individual size chart on it. Please look for this button Size Chart on the product you are interested in.

In our glove size chart you will find a link for this Glove Help. You can click that link for help finding your correct glove size.

In our bra size chart you will find a link for this Bra Help. You can click that link for help finding your correct bra size.

How do I measure for a bra?

How to correctly measure for bra size


Step 1. Band Size

Measure around your ribcage, right under the bustline on your bare skin. Don't pull the measuring tape too tightly.

This is your un-stretched band measurement.
Note: Latex needs to stretch about 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches to fit properly

All of our bras are listed as unstretched measurements, therefore this measurement is the one that corresponds with our size charts. Band must stretch to fit properly. Example: You measure 34, band must be smaller.

Step 2. STOP DO NOT go beyond here unless you are looking for CUP SIZE Convert Band (For Cup Size Only)
To determine your cup size you must convert this un-stretched band measurement into a bra band measurement using the conversion chart found below.

To determine your bra band size follow this chart.
(This chart and conversion process is only necessary
to determine cup size and is not necessary
to determine band size for a latex bra)
Measurement Add
Band Size
25" (63.5 cm) 1"
26
26" (66 cm) 2" 28
27" (68.6 cm) 1" 28
28" (71.1 cm) 2" 30
29" (73.7 cm) 1" 30
30" (76.2 cm)  2" 32
31" (78.7 cm) 1" 32
32" (81.3 cm) 2" 34
33" (83.8 cm) 1" 34
34" (86.4 cm) 2" 36
35" (88.9 cm) 1" 36

Step 3. Cup Size

For this measurement wear a supportive thin material bra.  Measure over the fullest part of the bust line.

Once you have this measurement subtract your bra band size that you got from the chart above from your overbust measurement.

That difference is the number you will use with the chart below to detemine your cup size.

Example
Cup Sizes:
a) Measure is 36"; 36-34=2 Cup Size is B
b) Measure is 41"; 41-38=3 Cup Size is C


To determine your cup size follow this chart using the difference between the band size and the overbust measurement.
Difference Standard Cup Size

1/2"- 1" (2.6 cm) A
