January 2011

As I’ve mentioned in other indie spotlights, I love it when my readers tell me about a new designer I haven’t heard of before. Today’s feature, on new indie legwear designer SockBox, is exactly the sort of thing I want to do more of on The Lingerie Addict in 2011. One of the things I like about SockBox is the playfulness and creativity behind the line. Legwear’s a hard niche […]

I know I say this every month, but it’s always true….I’m really excited about this month’s designer interview with Alexis Black, the founder and corsetiere behind Electra Designs.  Alexis created my most recent custom corset (which you can see on The Lingerie Addict Facebook Page) and her gorgeous corsetry is literally famous worldwide. In our interview, Alexis talks about why corsets matter, gives a few tidbits of advice for readers […]

            Summary: The Stylish Fox’s Giana and Malena opaque tights are one of the season’s best buys.  Made of super soft microfiber, these tights are warm, comfy, and incredibly affordable. 4 out of 4 stars. Review: I know I’m stating the obvious here, but it’s cold. Just last week, Huffington Post reported that 49 out of 50 states had snow on the ground, and I’m […]

Much like last year’s post on “Why Doesn’t the Lingerie Industry Like Women of Color?”, today’s article is on a subject very close to my heart, and I’ve reached a place where I can’t be quiet about it anymore. As I said in the women of color piece linked above, “The Lingerie Addict is about all aspects of the lingerie community, even the parts I don’t really like.” I’m sure […]

I can’t tell you how excited I am to bring you this exclusive interview with the reigning queen of pin-up, Bernie Dexter.  I’ve been a fan of Bernie for even longer than I’ve been blogging, so it was an absolute honor to ask her a few questions for The Lingerie Addict. But before we get started, I just want to say that Bernie Dexter’s famous “nice act” isn’t an act […]

A lot of people don’t know this, but lingerie actually has seasons in the same way the mainstream fashion industry does.  And just like “normal” fashion stores have to clear out old merchandise before getting the new stuff in, so do lingerie stores.  What that means for you and me, as lingerie consumers, is lots of amazing sales on some of the most expensive […]

Along with the Agent Provocateur sale (which is in its last few days) the What Katie Did sale is one of my favorite semi-annual events.  I love it so much because Katie, the designer and founder of the brand, doesn’t waste time with namby-pamby 15% and 25% discounts.  Everything on sale is a flat 50% off.  But if you see something you like, you’d […]

Confession time: today’s Lingerie Battle Royal is actually a last minute substitute.  I was going to write about the Agent Provocateur “Whip Me” Stockings and the ASOS “Love Seam” Tights…but between when I discovered the tights and when I decided to post them, they sold out.  Bummer.  Hopefully, ASOS will restock soon, and if they do, you can be sure I’ll let you know […]
