Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Inspired by the romance of the 1970s, Agent Provocateur’s new Spring/Summer collection (featuring French actress Mylène Jampanoï) is all romance, lace, and flowers. Agent Provocateur has found their formula and they’re sticking with it; the Fifi and Daena pieces in particular strongly resemble lines from previous collections. Of the four sets, I believe the Mercy corset is the strongest piece, especially when paired with […]

There’s been a really heated debate happening on Twitter today, and though I usually try to stay out of these (almost nothing good comes out internet debates), this is one case where I feel genuinely compelled to offer an alternative point of view. If you’ve not yet heard of it, The War on Plus Four is the brainchild of Busts4Justice, a UK-based lingerie blog that achieved worldwide fame when they […]

Catherine (from Kiss Me Deadly) and I have been doing a lot of chatting lately, and one of the things we’ve realized is that while she’s the head of an independent lingerie brand and I’m blogger who supports independent lingerie brands, we’ve never exactly talked about what an independent lingerie brand is or why they matter in the multibillion dollar economic machine that is the mainstream lingerie industry. Since I’m […]

The history of French lingerie sheds light on the evolution […]

Though I’ve only ever owned one pair of Bebabroque tights (a peacock print from their very first collection), I love keeping up with what this innovative hosiery design team is doing. Bebaroque specializes in fashion for your legs. Their one-of-a-kind embroidery and eye-catching prints are the definition of wearable art. What do you think of their brand new Spring/Summer  2012 Collection?

By: Laura Being a lingerie designer, I hear a lot of personal information about love lives. TMI? No WAY! I love to hear from friends, customers, and strangers at bars what their favorite romantic practices are, and, even better, what they WISH for…. Here’s a common refrain I hear from men: “I want to get her some lingerie that’s a gift for her as well as me. She only wears […]

A little bit off the cuff, a little bit stream of consciousness, Tony shares what sells most from his lingerie store and what he likes […]

One of the things I really want to do more of on The Lingerie Addict this year is video blog posts. Lingerie is such a visual experience, and there are literally countless ways to talk about it. Last year, one of my readers asked to see a few of my favorite pieces from my personal collection, so that’s the video I’m kicking off 2012 with. If there are topics you’d […]
