Miss Burlesque NZ

THE BIG TEASE: Christina Aguilera promotes it… Dita Von Teese made it famous… and even Rihanna is considering fronting a chain of nightclubs that offer it. So it’s no wonder that Kiwi women are now flocking in their droves to take up the hot and steamy art of burlesque. Billed as the more seductive form of striptease, its fans say it’s way more female friendly… and women of all sizes and shapes can give it a go. 20/20’s Beth Bates investigates what it is, and just how far you have to go to be good at it, with a group of corseted women from all walks of life, vying for the ultimate title of Miss Burlesque New Zealand.
