There’s a new video up on The Lingerie Addict YouTube Channel, and it’s all about garter belts (or suspender belts for my UK readers). With Mad Men, Dita von Teese, and, of course, the ongoing popularity of Bettie Page, there’s more interest in garter belts now than ever before. But not all garter belts are created equal so how can you know the difference between a good one and a […]

Disclosure: The International Lingerie Show is a The Lingerie Addict advertiser. However, they did not contribute to the content of this article, and all words are my own. In the last of our trend reports from this season’s Lingerie Market, I’m talking about my first ever visit to the Las Vegas International Lingerie Show. Being the newbie at a tradeshow can be super hard (you don’t know anyone… no one […]

Today’s Ask the Addict question comes from Tumblr follower PirateMasey who writes: I want to wear frilly panties like you used to see on showgirls! Any recommendations? Of course! Playful Promises makes frilly knickers in magenta, black, and peach. Fairy GothMother also makes frilly knickers in black, red, white, pale blue, turquoise, pink, purple and blue. Pandora’s Choice also sells frilly knickers including the amazing (but, unfortunately now discontinued) What […]

Today, April 24th, is National Lingerie Day, a holiday I honestly knew nothing about until roughly 11 p.m. last night. But since I am a lingerie blogger, I feel like I should do something appropriate for the day, so I thought I’d write a post about why I started blogging and why lingerie matters and all that other meta stuff I never really talk about here. Though it doesn’t sound […]

Gerbe just sent over their new 2012/2013 lookbook, and I’m smitten. As some of you know, I started blogging as Stockings Addict, so hosiery will always hold a special place in my heart, and I love how Gerbe constantly comes out with new patterns, colors, and designs every season. Below are a few of my favorites. The new styles will be available starting July 1st.

Blossoming Bloomers If you’ve ever participated in Hanami, or the viewing of the annual Cherry Blossoms, then you understand the allure of this centuries-old practice and the inspiration it provides for tourists, artists, and peace seekers alike. A traditional Japanese practice, Hanami has risen to become a global phenomenon famous for its beauty and symbolization of life’s ephemerality. However, as with life, the fantastical blooms of the Cherry Blossom trees […]

I am super excited about today’s blog post, an interview with Paige, the artist behind Busty Girl Comics. In case you haven’t heard of it, Busty Girl Comics is a webcomic all about the perks (and problems!) of having big boobs. Smart, insightful, and just plain funny, Busty Girl Comics is one of my new daily reads. Take a look at what Paige to say about comics, boobs, and what […]

By: Pippa Soft bras are something which, for years, I brushed past and didn’t even consider. Not being of the usual soft bra A-C Cup, I always figured these just weren’t the bra for me. But more recently I’ve found myself falling in love with the shape, design, detailing, and ultra soft cosy fabrics of some soft bras, and before I knew it, found myself making allowances, justifying them, and […]

HerRoom creates a universal bra sizing chart – The new chart groups the sizes from 150 different bra brands into one letter and one number (for example: D1, D2, D3, etc.). Tomima Edmark, founder of HerRoom, says the move to a single sizing chart is meant to help women who don’t know that bra sizing is inconsistent across brands, and who therefore feel like their range of sizes and choices is limited.
