Over the years, costumes for ladies have grown more and more sexy, but the french maid costume has become by far the most well known for being sexy and giving off a general attitude of naughtiness. Making a french maid costume offers many advantages over buying one, as there are many variables that can be added and changed according to the taste of the designer. Colours, materials and accessories can be varied to achieve the desired look and level of sexiness.

    Assembling the costume

  1. 1

    Buy a black dress. Choose a dress that is short, with puffy sleeves and a full skirt, preferably with crinoline underneath.

  2. 2

    Select a short, white apron. It should be slightly shorter than the dress with a tie in the back.

  3. 3

    Select stockings. Types available include basic, black pantyhose, knee-high tights and fishnet stockings.

  4. 4

    Choose footwear based on comfort and the level of sexiness desired. For example, black flats are comfortable and low-key, whereas black stilettos would offer more of an edginess to the ensemble.

    Adding accessories

  1. 1

    To give the french maid dress a more authentic appeal, wear a black corset over the dress, ideally one that has the corset strings in the front.

  2. 2

    Add a velvet choker as an accessory to dress up the outfit.

  3. 3

    Wear a garter mid-thigh or hold stockings up with a garter belt to add sex appeal to the costume.

  4. 4

    For an even more authentic air, wear lacy white gloves.

Tips and warnings
