By the time you read this, I’ll be in Vancouver, British Columbia celebrating the 2 year anniversary of my first date with The Boyfriend. He’s made me impossibly happy over the last two years, and I can genuinely say that I’m better person for knowing him and being with him.
When we were talking about our plans for this weekend, the one thing The Boyfriend said he wanted most from me was the gift of my time. So this weekend, I’m giving him my full and undivided attention and taking a break from all things blogging and blog-related. Lingerie Addict readers are awesome, so I’m sure you’ll understand.
If you haven’t already, please do enter the Dottie’s Delights Lingerie Giveaway. She’s handcrafting a $238 luxury pin-up set for one very lucky winner, with an alternate prize available if the winner happens to be outside the size range for the bra. If you’re craving some lingerie photography goodness, then stop by The Lingerie Tumblr. It’s the official photoblog for the main blog and there’s tons of amazing pictures there.
And, of course, it’s not Saturday without some lingerie sales so here are the ones I was able to find this week before I closed up shop -
- 15% off at Stockingirl with code 15 (expiration unknown)
- 25% off at Bare Necessities with code FRIEND (ends 10/31/11)
- 20% off the Autumn/Winter catalog at Figleaves with code EXCLUSIVE (ends 10/31/11)
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you all again next week. :)

One of the questions that pops up in my inbox at least once per day is “Where can I, as a D, DD, E, F, G (and so on) cup woman find pretty bras that fit my bust but won’t break the bank?” Though I’m a smaller size at 34B, I can’t imagine how frustrating it must be to love lingerie and never be able to find it in your size…or your budget. I hope this guide of DD+ bras priced from $30 to $220 helps with your search. Please feel free to make recommendations of your own or leave reviews of the bras you love in the comments.

Wacoal Lace Embrace Bra ($46, matching panty: $27)–I love lingerie that manages to be sexy and wearable at the same time and this Wacoal bra is it. The embroidery, the detailing, the fit…I’ve seen bras in this style that cost three times as much. Best of all, it’s so comfy that it makes great everyday piece. Available in sizes 32B to 40DD.
We don’t do very many giveaways on The Lingerie Addict. And when we do have a giveaway, it’s usually attached to a special event…like Valentine’s Day or my blogaversary or passing 10,000 fans on Facebook.
But not this giveaway.
This giveaway is all about you and your awesomeness. It’s just a small way of saying “Thank you,” for being readers, fans, and supporters of The Lingerie Addict. Because seriously, you all are amazing.
You have the chance to win a gorgeous, luxury, made-to-order lingerie set worth $238 from the very lovely Dottie’s Delights upcoming F/W 2011 range. Made of antique satin and black point d’espirt, this vintage-inspired bra and panty set is perfect for the modern pin-up girl. The sheer, peek-a-boo mesh flirtatiously reveals and conceals…and I have to say, I’m absolutely smitten with this lingerie.
The bra is available in sizes 32-36 B-DD. The knicker is available in sizes XS-XL. If the winner falls outside of the bra size range, an alternate prize of equal value will be awarded. Dottie’s Delights is made-to-order, and the set will take approximately 4-6 weeks to make and ship. This giveaway is open internationally. Further entry details are in the super-easy widget below, and the giveaway runs until next Wednesday, November 2nd at 11:59 p.m. PST. Winner will be chosen at random on Friday, November 4th.
Best of luck and thank you for reading The Lingerie Addict!
In perfect timing with all the hype surrounding last week’s big reveal of this year’s $2.5 million fantasy bra, I got my ultra-glossy Victoria’s Secret holiday catalog in the mail this week.
I don’t talk a lot about Victoria’s Secret on the blog because they’re everywhere. It’s a brand everyone knows (though not everyone loves), and I like to spend my time here talking about lingerie brands that may be less familiar to you all.
That said, Victoria’s Secret is the most popular lingerie company in America (if not the world) and many people, myself included, had their first exposure to the big, wide world of intimates within their walls. They’re known for being both accessible and affordable, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by their selection this year. Here are my top 10 picks from their holiday catalogue:
