Today’s announcement is the result of a long and thoughtful process for me. When I first started blogging, it was a hobby. I liked stockings and lingerie, and wanted to write about them without revealing myself. And so I created Treacle as a way to hide my identity. Some of you know that I used to work as a crisis counselor, so the sensitive nature of my job made me […]

When I first started blogging, I used to regularly do “lust” features, which were basically items of lingerie I loved but would never be able to afford. This week’s Lingerie of the Week is very definitely a lust feature. Wolford has always had a special place in my lingerie-loving heart. Every season, they come with brand new styles and trends and patterns that make everyone else’s hosiery look, well, average. […]

And which sports are you most looking forward to? I’m really excited about the debut of Women’s Boxing, myself. I feel like it’s inclusion is long overdue. If you feel like getting into the Olympic spirit (but don’t necessarily want to wear […]

I’m looking for one for my wedding. Thank you for sharing your lingerie passion, you post so much beauty. Cheers! Excellent question!

Note: These items were purchased by me. The Body Wrap is not affiliated with this review in any way. I’ve been wanting to try The Body Wrap for awhile. So much shapewear (the non-pinup kind, anyway) is boring and beige, that I love the idea of a shaping garment that can do double duty as something both pretty and functional. The Sheer Iridesscent Line is The Body Wrap’s trendier take […]

We’re starting a new feature on The Lingerie Addict this week…Lingerie of the Week, where we feature pieces we’ve been particularly pining over (pardon the alliteration). I don’t know if you know this, but I am obsessed with sheer black lingerie. And no matter how many times I try to change things up with a little color in my lingerie wardrobe, I inevitably come […]

Today’s guest post is by Petra Bellejambes, hosiery editor and regular contributor to the lingerie blog, Guilty Pleasures. In today’s guest post for The Lingerie Addict, Petra asks if shapewear’s popularity helps create a body snark prone climate. I thought the essay was extremely thought-provoking, and I’d love to hear what you think in the comments. ~ Treacle I love it when Treacle posts something a little contentious and an […]
