Wanna know a secret? The name of my blog wasn’t always The Lingerie Addict. Back in the day, I was called Stockings Addict, and my posts were all about stockings, tights, and hosiery in its various forms.
What changed? Well…I started spending more and more time looking at all kinds of lingerie and less and less time looking exclusively at stockings. After a few too many evenings on Figleaves and Bare Necessities, I realized what all of my close friends knew already…I was an incurable lingerie addict.
But even though the name of my blog is the lingerie addict, I know I’m not the only lingerie addict and so last week’s Q of the Week was all about discovering what makes you a lingerie addict too.
Take a look at what some of your fellow readers had to say on Twitter and Facebook, and, as always, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
