Victoria’s Secret gets a lot of flak within the lingerie industry. “Icky Vicky” is one of their most common nicknames, and I don’t know a single lingerie blogger who’s given one of their bras a positive review. Their sizing chart makes no sense, and even though I wear a size they carry (a C cup), I don’t shop there anymore because the bras just don’t fit. Add in their problematic […]

I adore everything about this set, from the lovely, whimsical print to the sheer lace accents. The only thing I don’t like? The size range. This bra is only available in D-G cups. But if this is […]

(cross-posted from The Lingerie Addict Tumblr and Facebook) There are people who think I should only post photos of small-busted women. There are people who think I should only post photos of full-busted women. There are people who think I should only post photos of women with tattoos or plus sized women or older women or women who aren’t photoshopped, and so forth and so on. I don’t know what’s […]

Awhile back, I did a post on the 7 Deadly Lingerie Sins. It’s become one of the most popular articles we’ve published to date (people really love sin, apparently), but I think it’s time for a bit of an update, and a new, 2012 spin. Since I’m always around lingerie in some capacity, I hear a ton of lingerie rules everyday. And most of them, while well-intentioned, are pretty generic. […]

Recently, I called in the troops for our semi-annual battle-against-the-clock party: the lingerie photo shoot.  The shoot punctuates the end of the design process–once an item has been shot, it cannot be changed–and begins the great coming-out party for the collection.  I had finally stopped redesigning and fiddling with my Spring/Summer 2012 collection for Lola Haze™  and was ready to send her off into the world. It was great fun.  […]

That time of year is called “Lingerie Market” and though it only lasts for a few short weeks, these are the most important days of the entire year for your favorite lingerie brands. Lingerie Market is when orders are made, […]

Today’s guest post is by a TLA reader, Katerina. She’s a stocking and lingerie freak and loves everything made of silk, cashmere and merino wool. One day, she’d like to own a cashmere luxury set of big pants and a bra one day. Unfortunately, no one makes this yet. Katerina  spends lots of time dyeing garments, learning to sew, knitting, making waldorf dolls and painting on glass and fabric. Her […]

Here’s a random fact: Did you know there is actually no common medical reason to wear a bra? That’s right. None. Contrary to popular belief, bras don’t improve breast health, prevent breast sagging, or anything else. Quite simply, there is no agreed upon health benefit to wearing bras that applies to every single woman. I know it probably seems a bit strange for me to be saying this. After all, […]
