There are some lingerie designers who just make me swoon.  Atsuko Kudo, the lady behind Lady Gaga’s latex is one.  Bordelle, the lingerie prodigies bringing an S&M aesthetic to the masses, is another.  Electra Designs, designer of some of the most gorgeous and technically masterful corsets in the world, is a third.  Don’t believe me?  Just take a look at her most recent creations below.  The woman is an absolute […]

 Today’s the start of a new Lingerie Addict tradition, one that I hope will become as consistent and enriching as my first tradition, Photo Friday.  One of my goals when I first started writing this blog was to have a place people could find honest, unbiased reviews before purchasing lingerie.  That goal is still very important to me, and to make sure it happens more frequently, this week marks the […]

I’m not sure if I’ve “outed” myself on the blog yet, but I am a massive geek.  The kind who not only reads comic books and attends comic-cons but also dresses up like comic book characters. I’m so geeky that I started planning my costumes for this year’s Dragon*Con six months in advance (hint: there will be at least one white wig involved). But now I want to add a […]

In a tasty morsel of lingerie-related news that’s sweeping the blogosphere, Lane Bryant alleges that ABC network rejected their brand new Cacique lingerie ad for being “too sexy.”  Yes, the very same ABC that broadcasts the Victoria’s Secret fashion show every year. According to Lane Bryant, ABC demanded excessive editing and recuts because the model’s cleavage was, well, too cleavagey.  ABC vigorously denies the claims and is all but calling […]

Today is Earth Day and environmentally conscious citizens everywhere are encouraging people to “reduce, reuse, recycle.”  Never let it be said that The Lingerie Addict doesn’t care about the environment; below are some of my favorite organic, sustainable, and otherwise earth aware faves.

The glow from last weekend’s burlesque show is just starting to fade, but before I put away my afro wig and hang up my booty shorts, I want to review my choice of nipple covers for that evening…Nippies by Bristol6. Many people have worn nipple covers, and almost everyone has heard of pasties, but Nippies is the best of both of those worlds. It […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Leopard print is the wild card (pardon the pun!) of the lingerie world.  As I mentioned in a post from 2008 animal print lingerie done well is sexy, naughty, and fierce.  Done poorly, it’s just cheap, trashy, and tacky. Unfortunately, most leopard print lingerie falls into that second category rather than the first one.  Need proof?  Just take a look at this popular lingerie […]

I know that’s a lot of exclamation points in the title, but I positively cannot contain my excitement.  The past 24 hours have left me utterly exhausted, but I had to update everyone before I went to bed.  Last night was AMAZING.  I’m struggling to come up with words to describe the tangle of thoughts and feelings and emotions I’m experiencing right now. There was the fear of performing, and […]
