A long time partner of HOB and Tempest Rose’s personal sponsor KMD has been a firm supporter of the Burlesque Idol Winner for years. Once upon a time a woman went on a long search for a good suspender belt set … and ended up with a vintage inspired retro lingerie brand designed for femme fatales; glamorous, sensual and intelligent women with just a hint of danger. KMD is the first port of call for anyone wanting a 6 strap suspender belt with metal clips, there are now girdles, cinchers, corselettes, basques, stockings, bras and a retro swimwear collection. Kiss Me Deadly also has one of the most thought provoking and interesting Blogs on their website under the title of diary as well as a tumblr blog filled with gorgeous pictures!
For our Burlesque Idol Grand Finale Kiss Me Deadly will be donating our winner a £250 gift voucher to spend. Feast your eyes on some gorgeous KMD treats below.

Our gorgeous friends at Sh! have honoured us by coming on board as Grand Finale Sponsors this year. The first female sex shop in the UK, Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium was established on 1st April 1992 as an antidote to sleazy sex shops and has since trail blazed the way for the whole of the sex industry to take a giant u-turn in how it views women’s sexuality.
Hailed in the press as “true pioneers” (The Observer Magazine) “ground-breaking” (Time Out) and “the best sex shop for women” (Time Out) , their mission has always been to create a comfortable, welcoming and informative atmosphere for women to browse and buy sex toys on line and in their London store, where guys are welcome to visit “as a guest” of a woman.
Sh! also hold an exciting array of erotic classes and workshops you can sign up to… which have included a burlesque class taught by HOB’s Tempest Rose!
Sh!’s policy is clear:
"We treat all womens’ sexuality as equal; so whether you are single, married, co-habiting or divorced, straight, lesbian or bi, in your 20’s 30’s 40’s 50’ 60’s 70’s or 80’s (our oldest customer so far is 88!) a mother, disabled, a survivor of cancer, like to swing from chandeliers or prefer the missionary position, you’ll always be welcome at Sh!"
We are very lucky to announce that not only will Sh! be providing the Burlesque Idol 2013 winner with an exciting goody hamper which includes their Sh! vibe, but will also be sponsoring our VIP Goody bag… so if you haven’t grabbed your VIP tickets yet do so before they all get snapped up!
