About The Lingerie Addict

Welcome!

My name is Cora Harrington, and I’m the Founder and Editor in Chief of The Lingerie Addict. It often surprises people, but I don’t actually come from a lingerie background. I didn’t start off in PR, fashion, or marketing either. Rather, The Lingerie Addict began as a hobby, something I did after coming home from my dayjob in nonprofits.

The Lingerie Addict is built on the idea that lingerie is fashion too. Very often, the world of intimate apparel is relegated to afterthought. It’s the outerwear, the accessories, the jewelry, and the makeup that get all the attention. The importance of lingerie is seen as negligible. Here at TLA, we seek to change all that. Here, lingerie is the star. Here, lingerie is the center of the – the foundation of – the perfect wardrobe.

More than anything, I want The Lingerie Addict to feel like a welcoming, inclusive, and empowering space for all, but especially for women. We’re officially a Body Snark Free Zone, and TLA is actively passionate about promoting diversity of all kinds, whether that’s in terms of size, race, sexuality, age, ability, or gender identity. In addition to the blog, TLA also consults with a very limited number of lingerie brands per year. You can learn more about our consulting services here.

If you’d like to reach me directly, my email address is cora@thelingerieaddict.com. While I try very hard to respond to all emails, I do ask that people give me at least a few days turnaround time as The Lingerie Addict has grown quite large since its early days!

If you’d like to inquire about advertising with The Lingerie Addict, please send your email to advertising@thelingerieaddict.com. News, tips, article ideas, and guest post submissions should be sent to editor@thelingerieaddict.com. Sales post submissions should go directly to our Sales Editor at sales@thelingerieaddict.com.

I hope you like it here!  Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Sincerely,

Cora Harrington

    The new layout, Treacle, is superb. Whimsical and sexy, it presses all my favorite buttons.

    Onwards and upwards…

    Wow! What a beautiful site you have! It's a place I'll want to come to again and again – for content yes, but just as much for the feel!

    I just found your site last week I am addicted I read every post every day .

    Bless you a million times over! By empowering women you create a better world for us men too. As one who is fascinated by the social construction of gender I find your site extremely edifying, and its visual content “easy on the eye.” Keep up the good work!

    I wonder if you ever did have a discussion of the garter-belt-and-panty problem (i.e., what goes outside what) as one of your correspondents suggested last year. I ask this because I was told by a woman of whom I am very fond that “almost nobody” wears her panties outside her garters, which is at variance with my limited observational opportunities (mostly garter belts as an everyday garment vanished almost overnight, in my part of the US at least, when pantyhose came on the market in the mid-’60s). A simple binary poll (outside vs. inside) among your readers would be very helpful here. My guess is that in fact the proportion is at least 50/50, despite the fact that lingerie-catalogue and cheesecake photos nearly always show the garters outside.

    Congrats on a wonderful site! I have only one complaint: the obnoxious popup. Please make it go away and I will promise to come back often.

      Hi PTG,

      The pop-up for our Very Important Addict newsletter appears once, and then doesn’t appear again. If it reappears with every visit to the blog, there may be an issue with your browser settings.

    Question?
    What is the difference between 34 D and 34 DD, since I´m a 34 E can I use DD instead??
    Not easy when you want to shop on the internet.
    Love your blog !

      Hi Jorun,

      I’m not a bra fit expert, so I don’t feel qualified to answer that question. However, Linda the Bra Lady and Butterfly Collection both offer amazing bra fit advice for women (especially fuller busted women) online. I’d reach out to them through Twitter or their websites.

      Best,
      Trea

    Very new to the world of blogs, but really love this website. I put ‘bra blogs’ into google and this came near the top. Happy to see it and hope you post more!

    Hello from a fellow blogger,

    Just wanted to say that I just discovered your blog and It is great! I too am a self confessed lingerie addict and there is lots of positive stuff here. I would love to see a post on the problems facing girls with small backs and a large cup size, for example 28/30DD+ ( UK sizes) There are great brands out there Bravissimo, freya and others but I’d love to discover some more…!

    |Keep doing what you are doing :)
    Ciao x

    Have you ever thought of having a day in ATL where you can help women choose and buy different pieces? Maybe I write this in hopes that would you consider having a Girls Day
    Hugs to you, Jen
