Note: This post is a sponsored post on behalf of Bare Necessities. All words written here are my own. I’ve talked a lot about the particular piece of lingerie that inspired me to start a lingerie blog (they were the Falke Peacock Welt Stockings, by the way), but I haven’t talked very much about the store I first saw those stockings in. That store, of course, was Bare Necessities. I […]

Founded only in January 2010, Canadian brand Fortnight Lingerie is perhaps most famous for being featured in last year’s ‘Super Sexy CPR‘ viral video. But if next season’s collection is any indication, Fortnight is about to be known for a whole lot more. Sweet, seductive, and deceptively simple, Fortnight’s clean lines and sumptuous fabrics embody today’s trends in fashionable lingerie. Best of all, Fortnight manufactures sizes 30A-38E. This is definitely […]

A few months ago, I was on The Lingerie Addict Twitter talking with a reader, when a retailer said to me, completely out of the blue, “For someone who isn’t a lingerie expert, you sure know a lot about lingerie.” Now, I wasn’t offended by her comment. I’ve always been completely open and honest about the fact that I’ve never worked for a lingerie boutique, a lingerie brand, or a […]

By Laura: Rompers and Onesies and Teddies…oh MY! The one-piece dressing trend has a lot of women worried, but the teddies I’m talking about have nothing to do with claws and teeth, so don’t be afraid! Rompers have been flouncing around the streets and runways for a few seasons, and they are nowhere sexier than in the boudoir. As a designer, I love designing rompers and teddies. Because they hug […]

By Kristina: As a lingerie designer I am constantly on the look out for new and innovative labels from which I gain inspiration and ideas. Now I’m not talking about knocking off original designs (which I do not condone) – I’m talking about searching around for new silhouettes, fabrics or details that can help me to gain insight into what the upcoming trends may be and helping to forecast what […]

By Pippa (For part 1, please go here) 5) Toiling I personally have a major love hate relationship with toiling. A bad toile can affect my mood for the rest of the day. Having spent sometimes hours drafting the pattern for your design from scratch, it’s necessary to mock up the garment in cheap fabric (ideally with similar qualities to the final fabric) in order the check fit and make […]

By: Marianne I don’t get out much. Really. My life is a stream of “all dressed up with nowhere to go” days, only that’s kind of how I like it. Oh, I might go swing dancing or to a nice tea house, but that’s about the extent of it. Recently, however, I’ve discovered the joy of traveling large distances, like actually (heaven forbid) leaving the state of California, where I […]
