Last month, during my most recent trip to NYC Lingerie Market, I took some time to have a daylong photoshoot with the world-famous pinup photographer Viva van Story. This was only my second shoot with Viva, but I really love working with her because she knows how to make the non-model types (like myself) feel fabulous and confident and comfortable in front of a camera. I know that, no matter […]

Hands down, one of the most popular questions I get asked is “Where can I buy an affordable corset?” And I totally understand the sentiments behind that. Good corsets are expensive, and rightly so. From the materials to the labor, a well-crafted corset costs money… and it’s worth every penny. But what if you’re new to corsets, and you don’t know if you want to spend upwards of $300 on […]

I have to be perfectly honest here… a lot of luxury lingerie doesn’t really wow me. I mean, I know all the big names and I keep up with them, but I don’t care how long a brand’s been around, how many awards they’ve won, or how many magazines they’ve appeared in.

Though this slinky reptile has a reputation for being cold-blooded, I have a feeling this latest trend will leave you anything but. What do you think of this trend?

I’ve been a fan of Love Claudette from the very beginning. The gorgeous colors made me excited about bras all over again, and the perfect fit made the brand an everyday staple. They also have one of the largest size ranges of any brands […]

I think I might die of happiness. Vogue Italia just wrote a feature about how much they love The Lingerie Addict. I’m in that weird headspace of needing sleep (because it’s almost 1 a.m.) but being a little too wired to go to sleep (because… well, you know) so I apologize if I sound a bit loopy, but I just couldn’t wait to share the news with you. I accidentally […]
