Dita Von Teese's nipple flashing fear

Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese protects her modesty by using extra-strong glue to ensure her nipple tassels don't fall off and expose her breasts

Dita Von Teese worries about losing her nipple tassels.

The burlesque dancer uses extra-strong glue to assure her crystal-decorated breast accessories don't slip out of place and expose too much flesh.

She explained: "I use serious waterproof glue, because I'm in a martini glass. Crystals are heavy and there's a lot going on."

The 36-year-old dancer's favourite routine sees her pour water over her near-naked body from a foam olive while sitting in a giant martini glass.

She said: "I've got a shower of water going down from the olive, so I've got to have something serious. I can't afford to lose a nipple tassel during my show."

Dita - whose ex-husband is goth rocker Marilyn Manson - first decided on her chosen career after developing a love for lingerie as a teenager.

She explained: "My obsession with underwear is how I ended up becoming a burlesque performer and a pin-up model.

"I worked in a lingerie store when I was a teenager. I wanted to know the history of lingerie, so I started looking at 30s and 40s lingerie and that's how I discovered the pin-ups from that era. I wanted to be photographed like a pin-up.

"I started working in a strip club at the same time as working in the lingerie store, and I thought this was like another opportunity for me to wear my lingerie, and have fun playing dress-up."
