Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. We’re continuing Pin-up Week with an in-depth discussion of pin-up lingerie–what it is, which pieces you need, and how to keep it looking like new for as long as possible.  So let’s get started! What is Pin-up Anyway? The word pin-up refers to the kind of mass-produced images that were originally “pinned up” on people’s walls in the form of posters, postcards, magazine cutouts, […]

One of the questions I’m asked most often–aside from how to buy pin-up lingerie–is what kinds of books and videos (that aren’t porn!) pin-up fans can add to their bookshelves and video collections.  It’s a great question and one I wish I’d been able to find the answer to when I was starting my own journey into lingerie addiction.  With that in mind, I’ve compiled this list of 3 videos […]

Even though it’s still sleeting in Seattle, the calendar tells me Spring is here, and that means it’s time for a little wardrobe update with the latest fashion.  I’ve already touched on some of the trends in my Curve Report and also in the article 10 Lingerie Sets You Need This Season.  But if I’ve learned anything from years of reading Vogue, it’s that you can’t talk too much about […]

Next Friday, April 22nd, is Earth Day, but since it’s also Bettie Page’s birthday, we’ll be celebrating Pin-up Week instead. However, there’s been a lot of interest in eco-friendly and ethically-produced lingerie lately, and I wanted to make sure we talked about it on the blog. So I asked Josh Verleun, environmental lawyer and co-founder of Between the Sheets to share his expertise with us here. He and Layla are […]

I tend to do lot of reminiscing around my blogaversary, and I’ve done a bit more than usual this year because so much changed for me in 2010.  Not only did I rename my site (from Stockings Addict to The Lingerie Addict),  I attended my very first lingerie tradeshow (Curvexpo), met a ton of lingerie designers, and officially became a business. I started Facebook and Tumblr pages for the blog, […]

Last Friday, in an e-mail sent out to my Very Important Addicts, I offered a prize to the first 3 people who could guess the subject of my very first post. I got a lot of responses, but not very many correct answers, so I thought I’d reblog the article for everyone to see. In a fit of creative genius, my very first post is titled…My Very First Post. Ladies […]

I cannot wait to see what the next year has in store, and I hope you’re here in 2012 when we’re celebrating 4 years.  But […]
