The first Playboy Club opened in Chicago, Illinois, United States. But, it soon became an international phenomenon with the opening of clubs in London and Jamaica.
While the club chain became defunct in 1991, the concept has endured thanks to the opening of new Playboy Clubs, both in the US as well as abroad--the most popular being the Playboy-themed lounge at the Los Angeles-based Commerce Casino.
These luxurious clubs, above all things, have been ubiquitously famous for their sexy waitresses, known as Playboy Bunnies. Depending on the roles assigned to them, there are different types of Bunnies such as the Door Bunny, Cigarette Bunny, Floor Bunny, Playmate Bunny, and the Jet Bunnies who are trained as flight attendants.
Becoming a Playboy Bunny is no cinch. It involves a rigorous selection process followed by a strict training regime. As part of the job, the Bunnies are required to be able to identify the hundred or so different brands of liquor as well as master the art of garnishing the different cocktail variations. A Bunny is also expected to master the various maneuvers to work such as the Bunny Perch, Bunny Stance, Bunny Dip, etc.
The Playboy Bunny costume is made from rayon-satin. Constructed on a merry widow boned strapless corset, the outfit is completed by cotton tails, satin bunny ears, cuffs with cuff links, collars with bow ties, and black sheer to waist pantyhose to go with matching high heels. A name tag is pinned over the right hip bone. The uniforms are usually custom made for each Bunny at the club she works in.
The Bunnies, over the years, have become the symbol of beauty, elegance, and oomph. Without doubt, they are an object of everyone's fantasy and desire. So, today, we will have a look at some of the sexiest Playboy Bunnies ever to have set foot in a Playboy Club.
