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. […]

I’m looking for one for my wedding. Thank you for sharing your lingerie passion, you post so much beauty. Cheers! Excellent question! Though you requested a sexy longline bra for the wedding day, I would remiss if I didn’t at least mention that comfort […]

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 […]

Frederick’s of Hollywood: the name summons up images of post-war pinups — good-natured eager girls maybe juuuust on the other side of good taste. Founded in 1946 by Frederick Mellinger and opening its first store on Hollywood Boulevard, the company capitalized on its association […]

After a couple of weeks of writer’s block (mostly brought on by the fact I had a lot going on in my personal life), I’ve been trying to look at my blog through fresh eyes lately. I’ve been pretty open about the reasons why I started blogging, and even though I’m not the same person I was back in April 2008 (when I made my very first blog post), I […]

Today’s post has been brewing for a little while. Last September I wrote an article asking “What makes someone a lingerie expert?” While all the comments on the original post were unfortunately lost during the move to WordPress, I received a lot of pushback from the mainstream lingerie industry which insisted, among other things, that “expertise” was something limited to people who had experience working for a brand or boutique.

Today’s Designer Interview is with Lorna of Lorna Drew Maternity Lingerie.I first met Lorna nearly six months ago at the Salon International de la Lingerie in Paris, and I have not been able to get her line out of my mind. She has one of the most exciting developments I’ve ever seen in maternity lingerie — a ‘responsive’ bra that adjusts to fit and support a Mom’s breasts both before […]
