Hi lovelies, You may notice the blog is a little quieter than usual this week. My parents are visiting me from Georgia (their last visit before I get married, more than likely), and I want to spend some time with them and enjoy their company. I’ll be updating the TLA Facebook page with “Lingerie Addict Flashbacks,” articles you may have missed on the blog that are still super informative and […]

Flowers are just so cheerful and happy and spring-like, I can’t get enough. I purchased my first floral set from Hopeless Lingerie to wear in my Seattle boudoir photoshoot, and then later I picked up an Elle Macpherson set from Gilt, but this is an obsession […]

Through the past few years, swimwear designers are slowly becoming more in tune with diverse and unique shoppers and offering us a wider range of styles to fit our individual personalities. Years ago I can remember perusing the conventional assortment in my local department store — full of prints and styles that never really allowed me to express my style as an individual. […]

Today’s Ask the Addict feature comes from lipstainedgarterbelts who writes: I know this is a lingerie blog, but would you happen to know where to get swimsuits to fit full busts (I’m a 34 G)? Great question! I can definitely understand why you may have had some trouble finding swimwear to fit your size. A lot of companies equate full bust with plus size […]

By: Pippa There’s no doubt that swimwear has evolved since the mid-1900s, mainly due to ever-developing fashions, lifestyle choices, cultural influences, and society. But the classic, ultra-flattering, vintage chic style is back for another summer. When we think vintage swimwear, those classic icons Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly immediately spring to mind, with their classic glamour and timeless elegance. And it’s this classic style […]

Blush Lingerie’s “Spellbound” bra and panty is the lingerie set of the season. Perfectly capturing the vintagey, Bridgette Bardot-inspired look of Spring lingerie this year, it’s also a reasonably affordable set with the bra retailing around $38 and the panty around $28. Cheeky, fun, playful, and […]

We’ve been fans of Marika Vera here at The Lingerie Addict ever since we first saw her debut collection in 2011. Not only did our columnists Holly and Karolina both think she was a designer to watch, she also made our Best Lingerie of 2011 list as “Best New Brand.” Marika’s ultra-luxe lingerie sophisticated, sexy, and intensely seductive. And I’m glad to see that she’s only gotten better with her […]

Portland, OR lingerie boutique, Lille Boutique, recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. I visited Lille almost three years ago, shortly after moving to Seattle, and was amazed by their style… which reminded me more of an opulent ladies’ dressing room than a typical lingerie shop. Lille Boutique is also one of the few independent lingerie boutiques that allows for a comprehensive online shopping experience. In this interview, Sarah Wizemann, Lille’s Founder, […]

It’s time for another Why do Lingerie Retailers…? feature, and this one asks the ever-popular question “Why do things cost what they cost?” If you’ve ever wondered what goes into the price of your favorite lingerie brands, Catherine (of Kiss Me Deadly fame) is here to explain: My heart sank when Treacle asked me to put in something about prices, because that’s a 10,000 word essay in itself. So, I’ll […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Today, May 14, is the 73rd anniversary of the nylon stocking, which was first introduced by the DuPont Company at the 1939 World’s Fair. Before nylon, stockings had been made of cotton, wool, rayon, or silk… materials which were either too bulky and warm to wear comfortably year-round or too fine and delicate to wear all day without tearing. When I first started blogging, […]
