The 2nd Annual Lingerie Addict Awards: Best Lingerie of 2010

Welcome back for the second of two “Best of the Year” posts.  A couple of days ago, I listed the Top 20 Articles of 2010, and today is all about giving awards for the Best Lingerie of 2010.  I did a similar list last year, but you may notice some significant changes this year.

One, the awards have a new name! From here on out, I’m calling them “The Scanties.”  Pretty appropriate, don’t you think?  Two, in keeping with my New Year’s Resolution (more on that next week) to feature more independent and small brand designers, you’ll see some names you don’t recognize on this year’s list.  I hope that you’ll check out these new designers, and keep them in mind next year when making purchases.

Well, enough out of me, let’s get to the list!  Love it or hate it, share your thoughts in the comments.

    This totally distracted me from work! I hope I can make a best retailer some day. ;)

    I JUST tried on several Maison Close pieces last week at my local panty boutique! I feel so in the know now! Beautifully made and very unique. Thought the prices were very fair too.

    Happy new year to you!

    I want everything!

    And after 30 days on this slow-carb diet from Tim Ferriss, I'll be able to look fabulous in it all!

    Thanks, Treacle!
