March 2012

Last year, in response to a message one of my Tumblr followers sent me, I made a list of my 10 favorite lingerie blogs. Since then, a couple of the bloggers on that list have gone on to become quite famous, and, on a somewhat sadder note, a couple of the bloggers have since gone defunct. But it’s hard to stay sad for too long because there are new lingerie […]

By: Kristina Here on the east coast we have been experiencing abnormally warm weather for the past few weeks. The flowers are budding, the birds are singing, and New Yorkers are already breaking out their flip flops! While I am really hoping this is not a sign of global warming, I’m also welcoming these signs of spring with an extra bounce in my step and the reintroduction of bold, unabashed […]

Today’s “Why Do Lingerie Retailers” feature is a short one, but a good one. One of the questions that’s come up a lot within the lingerie community (and the fashion community in general, really) is “Why don’t retailers hire a model in each size to show how the clothing looks on a range of body types?” Sounds pretty reasonable, right? Here’s what Catherine had to say: Put plainly, it’s money. […]

There’s a new video up on The Lingerie Addict YouTube Channel, and in it, I’m sharing a little bit of what I learned about bra fitting from the Eveden Group while in NYC for Lingerie Market. Eveden, which owns the brands Huit, Fantasie, Fauve, Freya, Goddess, and Elomi, teaches a bra fit seminar at Curve every market season. It’s always well-attended, and after hearing great things about the class from […]

I first saw Fleur of England’s “Dash of Lime” collection at last year’s Curve Lingerie Show, but since it was super new, I couldn’t photograph it yet (and understandably so, since many luxury lines are ripped off almost immediately after the show). I haven’t stopped thinking about it though, and when I saw the impossibly nice Fleur of England ladies during this year’s lingerie market, they told me I could […]

I was going back through my blog archives earlier this week, and I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t made a post about being on Pinterest! Though I’ve only been on the service for a few months now, I love it. It’s a great way of keeping track of what inspires me without things getting lost the way they sometimes do on blog-style formats (like Twitter and Tumblr). If you’re on […]

Today’s article is the first in what I hope is a new, regular column titled “Why Do Lingerie Retailers…?” I was talking with Catherine (from Kiss Me Deadly) on Facebook chat a few weeks ago, and asking her about all the weird things lingerie retailers do (and by weird, I mean, “things I don’t understand because I’ve never worked in the lingerie industry.”) Catherine, being the incredibly obliging, patient, and […]

I think I must have played with half a dozen titles for today’s blog post, all with varying degrees of exclamation points and the use of the word fiancé. But sitting here at my computer, after a week of telling our parents, family, and friends about the news, I realized the simpler title was the best one, and so here it is: I’m engaged. I don’t share many details about […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. We’re only halfway through March, and I think La Perla’s latest ad campaign may already be a contender for the best of 2012. The photos are fresh, fashion-forward, and, of course, breathtakingly beautiful. Best of all, they pay homage to vintage editorials without actually becoming vintage editorials. Bravo, La Perla, bravo. Please, pretty please do more of this. Select items available from Journelle and […]

By: Marianne Today, I would like to talk about an item of apparel very near (no pun intended) and dear to me: sexy granny panties. Emphasis on the “sexy.” If the term “granny panties” doesn’t appeal to you, I suppose we can stick with “retro high-waist panties,” if we must. This enduring style smooths and accentuates curves; even in this age of ultra-low-rise jeans, thongs, and whale tails, it has […]
