Favorite Lingerie Brands: Kiss Me Deadly, Natori, Hopeless, ClareBare, Between the Sheets
Bio: I started blogging because I was interested in lingerie, but couldn’t find anyone talking about it in a way relevant to me. Besides lingerie, I also love bing cherries, mint chocolate chip ice cream, comic books, guacamole, and travel…though not necessarily in that order.
Lingerie Tip:Expensive lingerie isn’t necessarily awesome and cheap lingerie isn’t necessarily terrible. Be willing to experiment at a range of price points to find your perfect style and fit.

Bio: I’m a copywriter for boutique businesses, as well as a freelance columnist. I’m a East Coast transplant who loves pimiento cheese sandwiches and hunting for great lingerie.
Lingerie Tip: Shapewear is a great psychological pick me up. You feel sexier and more confident with it under a dress.
Facebook: Karolina Laskowska Design
Favorite Lingerie Brands: Lascivious, Sockbox
Bio: A contour fashion student with unhealthy obsessions with everything lingerie related and the bank statements to prove it. Alternates between listening to obnoxious music and baking too much cake in her spare time!
Lingerie Tip: Lingerie sample sales are one of the best ways to get your hands on luxury lingerie for a fraction of the price if you’re willing to fix a bit of stitching yourself!
Bra size: 30C/32B American
Facebook: Pop Antique
Favorite Lingerie Brands: Pop Antique, Dark Garden, Sparklewren, Electra Designs, Rago Shapewear
Bio: Marianne Faulkner is an independent corsetiere, fashion illustrator, and corset model. She will complete her MFA in fashion design in December 2011, and hopes to go into teaching as well as expanding the Pop Antique line once done with her education.
Lingerie Tip: If a corset doesn’t look very shapely on its own, that’s not going to change when you put it on.
Bra size: 32C
Favorite Lingerie Brands: Agent Provocateur, Pleasure State, Made By Niki & La Perla
Bio: I was born and raised outside of NYC and attended the Fashion Institute of Technology for lingerie design. I have been working in the industry for 10 years and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Besides designing I love to DIY, read, take photos & travel to new places. I also love animals and volunteer at local shelters in my free time.
Lingerie Tip: The right kind of underwear can change your whole outlook for the day. Always choose pieces that will make you feel comfortable and confident!
Name: Laura a.k.a. Lola Haze
Bra size: shhhhh
Facebook: Lola Haze TM
Favorite Lingerie Brands: Eres, vintage Pucci
Bio: I’ve loved lingerie since before that was reasonable. I taught myself drawing, designing, and sewing, and after graduating from Harvard with an English degree, immediately went to work disregarding it and following my passion for fashion. After a few years designing for a big company, I went off on my own and started Lola Haze TM, (named after the title character in “Lolita,” my favorite book). Lola Haze is playwear for the bold woman who loves fun and dresses for herself! I feel happy and lucky that I get to love my job so much, and am thrilled to share my lingerie enthusiasm with The Lingerie Addict!
Lingerie Tip: Always wear nice underthings; you never know if you’re going to end up in the ER or meet a cutie.
Bra Size: 32G
Fave Brands: Freya, Love Claudette, Hanky Panky, Between the Sheets, Stella McCartney
Bio: I’ve loved pretty underthings since I was young girl coordinating my sets to my outfits. Have been writing about this love affair since 2006. While it was my need to find fashionable lingerie for my full bust that got me started, I’ve since fallen in love with many styles and silhouettes for all shapes and sizes with a special passion for indie brands. When I’m not wandering the streets of NYC, I’m crafting things off my Pinterest boards.
Lingerie Tip: They call them foundations for a reason! Invest in quality pieces that you can afford. Everything you put over top of them will look and fit better helping you take on the world with confidence!
