The Lingerie Addict has a sermon for you today and we’re talking about the 7 Deadly Sins of Lingerie. Don’t worry about it if you see yourself in one or two of these; I’ve done all of them at one time or another. But if you feel the need to make a confession (or just want moral support), you can always drop me a line at thelingerieaddict@gmail.com. Lust Drooling over […]

Where can I buy sexy, preferably cheap, bras for someone with a small rib measurement but large cup size? I can only seem to find plus size bras […]

Considered the “Ansel Adams” of fetish photography, Steve Diet Goedde has more than earned his world-famous reputation. Like Viva Van Story, Goedde was one of the few photographers I knew about before I even started this blog, and it’s almost criminal that I’m just now featuring him. I’d be delighted to know your favorite photo from the very, very limited selection out of his portfolio below.

Editor’s Note: As of September 2015, MySkins appears to no longer be in business. If you’re pressed for time, and just want to know if MySkins is worth the money or not, here’s my answer: YES. Ohmigod… yes. MySkins is the answer to one of my major gripes with the lingerie industry… the profound lack of “nude” lingerie in a variety of skintones. Now I know that the color we think of […]

Lust. I’m in it. Laila Lee [Editor’s Note: As of January 2015, this site appears to be defunct] is a brand-spanking-new lingerie line designed by a lady of the same name. Designed and constructed in New York City, Lee’s creations are all about indulging the sensual, sophisticated side of life. Every piece is made by hand, and I’ve a featured of few of my favorite looks below. What do you think […]

Two major things happened tonight, lovely people. One, I got the photos back from my burlesque recital. You can see one of them up above. They’re pretty big files, so I’m sending the rest directly to my newsletter subscribers. Sign up if you want to see them! Two, I danced in my second burlesque show tonight. It was a smaller venue with a smaller audience and the same routine, but […]

The name Wolford is associated with luxury, class, and elegance, but when people first discover the brand they often wonder, “Why exactly do these stockings cost so much?” After all, hosiery is hosiery, right? And a cheap pair of tights from the drugstore should cover your legs just as well as those from the department store, right? Well… yes and no. While all legwear pretty much serves the same function […]

One of the things I like most about writing this blog (aside from connecting with other lovers of lingerie, of course!) is discovering new and interesting designers. I look at a lot of lingerie now, and while I love it all (or most of it anyway), not much makes my breath quicken and my heart race anymore. But these tights do. Gal Stern is an Israeli designer who specializes in […]

So I was in a bookstore with The Boyfriend over the weekend, and ran across the British GQ’s May issue featuring a photospread of Rosie Huntington-Whitely taken by Ellen von Unwerth. And, my goodness, is it delicious! I’ve featured only a few of the shots here; visit GQ-UK’s website for more. P.S. Scroll to the end of the article to find out where you can buy the pieces Ms. Rosie […]

Today’s review is a bit of a departure from the norm for me. While I do wear and love shapewear, I’m not usually a fan of the modern stuff. It just seems kind of boring compared to vintage-inspired girdles, cinchers, and merrywidows. That’s why I wasn’t sure what to expect when I received the Yummie Tummie Lace Teddie. Composed of a nylon/polyester/spandex blend, the Yummie Tummie teddie bills itself as […]
