Today’s guest post comes from Gayle, a long-time reader who wrote me last week to ask about lingerie companies that cater to more mature women.

One thing I’m really passionate about here on The Lingerie Addict is supporting independent designers. I’ve tried to do that multiple ways…from Designer Interviews to the group Independent Lingerie Professionals to making myself personally available for designers to send their lookbooks and other press materials. Still, there are some aspects of the industry I just don’t know very much about, and one of the questions I’m asked most often is […]
