The Lingerie Addict Editors & Contributors
Name: Cora Harrington
Role: Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Lingerie Addict
Bio: I’m a women’s college graduate and former nonprofit worker, and I’ve been blogging about lingerie since 2008. Though I was raised in Georgia, I currently live in Southern California. I love English Breakfast tea, comic books, champagne and costume dramas.
Bra Size: 34C
Lingerie Tip: Lingerie shopping can be frustrating (and understandably so), but the good news is that are more options available than ever before. More than likely, someone is making something that is the perfect size, shape, and style for you. Don’t be afraid to research online and try new things. It’s worth it when you find the perfect piece.
Specialty: Luxury Lingerie
Bio: Independent lingerie designer based in London, UK. Contour Fashion graduate and all-round lingerie obsessive, with a dangerous addiction to French lace and corsetry.
Bra Size: 30D
Lingerie Tip: Make the most out of the seasonal sales – learn some basic sewing skills and how to cross grade bra sizes. Even if your size is out of stock, you can often pick up a bra with the same cross graded cup size and easily alter the underband to fit you.

Bio: I’m an aesthete and entrepreneur who lives in Brooklyn, NY and runs the dreamy made-in-NYC loungewear line, she and reverie.
