A sexy nurse costume is a classic. Other classics include the school girl costume, the sex kitten and the various armed forces costumes. In fact, nearly every costume that you can think of probably has a sexy counterpart. Some just remain classics because they are that great. These are the costumes that are never out of favor. These are the costumes that will always sell well. These are the costumes that most people want.
For a costume to be considered a “classic” it has to have real staying power. The Miley Cyrus costume from last season was amusing and sexual if not necessarily sexy but is not going to be as popular this year because that whole event has been talked to death. In fact, if you ask some of the people, including those who were the most outraged at the time about that particular award show, you might be surprised by how few details people will be able to give. Many of them may not even remember the name of the singer that Cyrus performed with on that fateful night. The costume was a hit last year because it was fresh on everyone’s mind. This year? Not so much.
Another thing that sets the classics apart from the Hottie Come Lately costumes is the ability to choose your levels. A sexy nurse costume could be just a regular nurse costume with the top undone just a little more than necessary or it could be a full blown, fetish style latex costume that would be worn for a very private, intimate party for two. Some of the new “sexy” costumes are nothing more than an excuse to be as bare as you dare and then some. In other words, the classic sexy costumes usually leave a bit to the imagination and are more tasteful than the new school, sexy costumes.
If you walk into a room in one of the classic sexy costumes, people will notice you and they will definitely pay careful attention to you, especially if you walk in alone. No one will ask who or what you are supposed to be because they will all know. That is the advantage of the classics- they are always in style, always topical and never fall out of favor. Some of the stars of today are hot one minute and then old news the next- they will never be considered “classic” anything. Their costumes are only going to be popular at that moment and the moment will be fleeting before it is relegated to the bargain bins for has-beens and never weres.
