October 2010

With the release of the 2010 Diamond Fantasy Bra from Victoria’s Secret (worth a whopping $2.5 million), everyone’s mind is on expensive lingerie. And when I say “expensive,” I mean the sort of lingerie where, if you have to check the price tag, you almost certainly cannot afford it. While I maintain my position that ultra-expensive lingerie really isn’t any better than the lingerie us mere mortals buy, I also know […]

As you’ve probably noticed, most Friday features here on The Lingerie Addict are dedicated to photography. But every once in awhile, I like to change it up my highlighting artists of a different sort. In the past year or so, I’ve featured modern favorites like Neryl, Amano Jyaku, and Caitlin Shearer, but today I’m going wayyy back and paying tribute to the grandaddy of glamorous pin-ups, Bill Ward. If you […]
