Lingerie Giveaway: Playful Promises Black Orchid Bra Set

With a blog named Confessions of a Lingerie Addict (née Stockings Addict) I’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone that I love lingerie.

In fact, I think there’s only one thing in the entire world that I love more than wearing lingerie, and that’s talking to other people about lingerie.  It’s why I get so excited when I have giveaways on the blog…because then I get the chance to spread a little lingerie love to other folks!

This next giveaway comes courtesy of Playful Promises.  If that name sounds familiar, it’s because I mentioned them in the post 10 Beautiful Bra & Panty SetsPlayful Promises is known for it’s quirky, flirty lingerie made for women “who are confident enough to not take themselves too seriously and know that life is there to be lived.”

You have the opportunity to win their Black Orchid Bra, Panty, and Suspender Belt Set.  Made of lush black satin, this tuxedo-inspired range features a push-up bra, high-waist knickers (with sexy peek-a-boo detailing!), and retro-inspired suspender belt.  The total value of this set is £52.50 or $85.00.  You can enter in the following ways:

1) Leave a relevant comment in this post!  Easy-peasy.
2) Visit the Playful Promises website and tell me what else you like
3) Tell me who your favorite pin-up girl is!  Use this article if you need help.
4) Post this giveaway in your blog, Facebook, or LiveJournal.
5) Re-tweet the giveaway.  Please remember to follow me on Twitter too!

There’s no limit to the amount of entries you can receive by re-tweeting or re-posting so share the love as often as you’d like.  Just make sure to let me know in the comments so I can keep track.  :-)

As before, please leave a separate comment on each entry for counting purposes. Giveaway ends 12/31/09 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Giveaway is open to U.S. and non-U.S. residents. Winner will be chosen via Random Number Generator on 1/2/10.

Good luck and I can’t wait to read your comments

New Name, Same Blog but I Need Your Help.

Hi Everyone!

I’m currently transferring my blog from http://stockingsaddict.blogspot.com to www.stockingsandlingerieblog.com.  This is the first step in what will become a total makeover of my little lingerie site.

Sadly, it appears that Google has lost everyone on my blogroll.  I’d just added lots of new blogs too, so I hadn’t memorized all your addresses yet.

If you’d like to be put back on my blogroll (and I hope you do, because I loved reading you!), please comment here.

Thanks so much!
Treacle :-)

Le Mystere Lingerie Sale + Daily Outfit!

Hey…have you entered the Kiss Me Deadly Lingerie Giveaway yet?


We’ve only 11 days ’till Christmas so things are starting to get critical.

Fortunately, Rue La La is bringing you yet another sample sale from famed lingerie designer Le Mystere. While the Wolford and La Perla sales were more about special occasion lingerie, I have a feeling the Le Mystere sale will be a great place to pick up your sexy basics. Need an invite? Just click here. Sale starts 12/15 at 11 a.m. ET, 8 a.m. PT.

Speaking of Rue La La, I wanted to show you all the Wolford tights I picked up in the last sale. They’re also the tights I was referring to in this post when I named the Urban Outfitters floral tights a budget alternative.

What do you think? My fashion sense is still a work-in-progress so I’d appreciate any (constructive) comments! Oh, and the dress is by Michael Stars…so comfy!

Winter Lingerie Shopping Guide: 19 Titillating Teddies & Bodysuits

Pssst…Don’t forget to enter the Kiss Me Deadly Lingerie Giveaway!


I never understood the point of bodysuits until I ran out of shirts while backpacking across Europe and had to buy some. For me, the appeal of the bodysuit lies in it’s versatility.

Bodysuits are great for layering, especially on chilly days…or you can make like Lady Gaga and wear them alone for a phenomenal statement piece. As with any great trend, bodies are available at every price point. Here are the nineteen I believe are worth a second look.
