Default Leather Maid's Uniform From Leatherotics

Last summer I was asked by one of our UKM members whether I knew of any shops selling quality leather dresses where it was possible to try on before purchasing. I didn’t, but when I did an on-line search, I came across a web-site for Canadian company, Northbound Leather. On their site they had a leather maid’s uniform, and, of course, as soon as I saw it, I wanted one. Alas they quoted me 513 $Canadian (= over £300) excluding shipping and inevitably high UK customs and taxes for a made-to-measure uniform. Much more than their price for standard female sizes. Ouch!

However, I kept looking on-line, and in December I contacted e-bay company, leatherotics and, although they didn’t have anything exactly like what I was after on their standard range, they were able to make me a similar style to my measurements for £115 plus postage.

The satin-lined dress and matching apron took three weeks longer than they quoted to arrive, but it was the Christmas/ New Year period. The workmanship of the stitching, and the fit to my slightly odd shape, is very good, and the black leather has a very soft feel. Mistress Alana was very complimentary on its first outing this month, and even remarked on my "cleavage", before giving me full marks (and then some).

So I would thoroughly recommend leatherotics, though with one caveat: The dress smelt to me of cigarette odour when it arrived. To get rid of this, I sprayed the satin-lining a couple of times with Febreeze odour eliminator, carefully wiped a Febreeze-dampened cloth over the leather, hung the dress outside for a few hours in the sunshine, and finally, after trying a test, polished the leather with “Tableau Leather food cream”, and in this way got rid of the smell.

To find leatherotics just type their name on the e-bay search system.

I've had several items from leatherotics and none of them have smelled of cigarette smoke. You must have just been very very unlucky.

Do we get a pic, abigail?

I've used leathererotics before, although not recently. I had an issue with sizing, but decided it was mine, rather than theirs, and given that the money in question was minimal, I let it be. No cig. smoke. *However*: I'd think about letting them know on this occasion. There's almost nothing worse than leather in contact with tobacco smoke.

(And Northbound are wonderful... I've only visited, not bought.)

Its many, many years since I risked expulsion when I smoked in uniform on the way home from school, but I find I am now particularly sensitive to cigarette smells, so perhaps I would notice this when others might not, Lady Anna, or just as you say, very unlucky.

I was going to mention it to leatherotics, but as the chap there is called "Ash", I didn't think that was a particularly good omen! (Before you rush to his defence, I'm sure its a coincidence, and his name is not from overdoing the ciggies). They advised the outfit would not need any special care as it was "treated for long life". Fortunately, the approach I took got rid of the smell that troubled me, and I detailed it in case anyone else gets a similar problem with leather outfits from e-bay outlets. As you might imagine, I was most concerned that it didn't smell for Mistress Alana (who is also a non-smoker) when she was up close, wielding her lovely big strap-on. Even with my caveat, I thought I got a bargain and would recommend this company.

Folly, I'm waiting for Mistress to decide which of my outfits I should wear for our next session - which marks our "9th sessioning anniversary". If she wants me to wear this outfit, I'll take my camera, and, if I don't come out in the pics looking like the horse I "rode" in Mongolia last year, I'll see if I can use one for a replacement to my avatar - but is "pink" sooooh really last year darling??... I hoped I was ahead of the curve! And I rather think it sums me up as Mistress' creation - she tells me she always wanted a Barbie doll to play with!

Hi maidsallyanne,

I've temporarily changed my avatar to show my leather maid's uniform. Forgive me for being vain and cropping out my face.....I think that Mongolian horse proved prettier. Plus I couldn't get "the light behind me" when the photo was taken.

Why thank you, Lady Anna. Yes, leatherotics came up trumps.
