To everyone: Between planning for my trip to Europe and moving out of my apartment, there’s a lot going on in my life right now. Therefore, I’m taking a short break from Stockings Addict. The next time I post here, it will be from Europe! Feel free to comment here with news or sales or tips for other lingerie lovers, and, as always, thank you so much for reading my […]

So you’ve thought about shape. You’ve thought about style. You’ve thought about fabric. Finally, you have to make a decision between purchasing “off-the-rack” or going custom. All the factors we’ve considered before now go into making this decision. Can you find your ideal corset off the rack? Do you have a special fabric you want to use or perhaps a hard to fit body shape that makes buying off the […]

I think the biggest distinction when it comes to corsets is underbust vs. overbust. They’re defined exactly as they sound: overbust corsets come to the nipple or higher while underbust corsets end just beneath the breasts or lower. The style that’s best for you really depends on your personal taste and what you plan to wear your corset for. While I’ve seen plenty of gorgeous underbust corsets, overbust corsets have […]

A corset’s prime feature is its waist cinching capability. Unlike girdles or waist cinchers or corselettes, a real corset will take your waist in by at least 2-4 inches. Curvy women may find that a corset can take their waist in six inches or more. In other words, a woman with a 34″ waist could go down to a 28″ waist with good corsetiere and proper waist training. But before […]

In addition to covering a few basics about corsets, I also want […]

What’s the next best thing to stockings?  Socks of course! Ever since I discovered Sock Dreams last winter, I’ve had a huge crush on them. Not only are they woman-owned and operated, not only do they personally test every single item of their massive selection, not only do they have free shipping (within the US only), they have some of the best customer service I have ever encountered. And, if […]

So, after quite a bit of thinking, I’ve decided to expand my blog a little. The primary focus will always be on stockings and other hosiery related items–I am a stockings addict, after all– but I want my content to include other kinds of feminine undergarments like corsets, panties, and slips. I have some exciting posts in mind for the next couple of weeks, and a few new ideas I […]

The very lovely T-Rex has just informed me that Kiss Me Deadly is offering the Vargas dress in a new colorway–red and black. I own this corselette in black and in the original aqua and white design and they’re two of the most satisfying purchases I have ever made. While this particular color scheme isn’t for me, those of you into the crime noir/femme fatale look might want to pick […]
