Its hard to believe that Kiss Me, Simone started over 10 years ago! I trained as a costume designer, and when the Burlesque Revival came to town I started making burlesque costume pieces. That tuned into a business that has changed a lot over time, and not just the name (we used to be Kiss Me Quick). Now we specialise in lingerie that doesn’t always appear on the stage, lingerie that’s just as saucy and just as seductive, but requires a little less maintenance. Something that you can slip under your everyday clothes, or lounge around the house in, and still have the appeal and presence of an onstage goddess.
You may know that KMS closed down for a brief period in 2016, while I completed my studies, but we are back now albeit with a slightly different agenda. In an effort to become more sustainable, I’ve temporarily halted fabric purchasing. Thats right, I’m working through everything that I have in the studio and not purchasing any new fabric until I’ve gone through at least 75% of what I have on hand. Waste not, want not, right? So, some classic KMS designs have sold out as I’ve used all the existing fabric, but please feel free to contact me, if there was a design that you were after and I might have an alternative fabric solution.
Whilst all KMS items on the main site (kissmesimone.com) are made to order, as fabrics run low I will be making up the last pieces into whatever takes my fancy and those will be available here on the ETSY store.
Or follow me on Instagram where I will post new item releases @kiss_me_simone

About

Creating handmade lingerie since 2006

I'm Simone Squires, creator of everything Kiss Me, Simone.

Originally (way back in the 90's) I trained as a costume designer, primarily interested in costume for dance, but I didn’t really feel that I could express myself in this field until the Burlesque revival hit Sydney in 2005. Glittery and crazy and so DIY it was a whole new world of fun, and friends started asking me to make things for them. Mostly everyone wanted pasties, because believe it or not, they were next to impossible to get your hands on at the time!

From pasties, I started making other costume pieces, saucy knickers, girdles, bustles, all sorts of things, and it was great fun, Myspace was big and I was getting enquiries from all over the world... Then, for a few years, life got in the way and KMS took a back seat, and quietly in the back of my head all the time, it re-invented itself.

Ten years later and its so different, and yet a little the same, I still make pasties but I also have a pared down, more fashion inspired range, perhaps it’s a little darker, a moody kind of sexy, mysterious girls, self assured women, less razz-a-ma-tazz, more private secrets...

There have been so many successes, from photos featuring world famous models like Masumi Max, to features in magazines and the cover of Inked Australia. I'm so grateful to everyone who has supported me and my little brand, my wonderful customers and to all the other creative’s in my world, together we all grow stronger.

Additional policies and FAQs
Caring for your KMS goodies:

Pasties unfortunately cant be washed, they can be delicately spot cleaned but if your bed room routine involves covering yourself with whipped cream, champagne or the like... perhaps you might think again...

Knickers, garters and the like prefer to be hand washed with a delicate soap to keep them fresh and perfect.
Its best to remove all hardware, like detachable garter grips and brooch details before washing and, please, don't wash feathers, birds just look awful wet.

Items with heavy stretch shouldn't be exposed to large amounts of heat or they will look like your boy's boxer elastic after its been through the dryer too many times... not great!


Pastie FAQ!

How do they stick on?
Well traditionally latex glue or spirit gum... awful stuff that leaves a rather sticky mess. My pasties are very light weight and soft and easy to mould to your assets. I've never found it necessary to use anything stronger than costume tape, or fashion tape.

Where do I wear them?
Well ladies, I leave that one up to you!
