Disclosure: I received this lingerie from Impish Lee for review purposes free of charge. All opinions are my own. Custom lingerie is a bit of a contentious topic for me. I can see the appeal of being given a voice in the design in your lingerie and the excitement of owning something potentially unique. My perspective is dramatically different than that of the average lingerie buyer; as a designer who’s […]

If you’ve been watching the news lately, no matter where you are in the world, it’s likely that you’ll have heard about ‘Brexit’. It’s the portmanteau name given to the ‘British Exit’ from the European Union (a political union of 27 European countries comprising of common economic, foreign, security, and justice policies). On June 23rd 2016, the population of the United Kingdom (including England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Island) had […]

Disclosure: I received this set from Boux Avenue for review purposes free of charge. All opinions are my own. I’ve been a fan of the Boux Avenue brand for several years. On the British high-street lingerie scene it certainly stands out, offering one of the widest size ranges in consistently fashion-forward designs at a relatively accessible price point.  Its brick-and-mortar stores offer a lovely shopping experience of attentive staff, pleasant […]

The Victoria & Albert museum is without a doubt my favourite place in London. I’ve been a member of this wonderful institution since I was a teen, and it’s incredibly easy to while away countless hours in its exquisite collections of Art and Design.  They’ve curated some stunningly beautiful exhibitions (the recent Alexander McQueen retrospective and Wedding Dress exhibition spring to mind immediately). When The V&A first announced ‘Undressed: A […]

I hold the firm but controversial belief that no design is truly original. At least not in the world of lingerie: designers don’t live in a vacuum and they all face influences, whether it’s consciously or not. Inspiration can come from almost any source, be it the haute couture catwalks or historical costume. More often than you’d expect, it’s purely a matter of zeitgeist that sees a swathe of labels […]

Disclosure: This product was purchased for the purpose of review by The Lingerie Addict. All opinions are my own. Most corset aficionados have heard of Vollers. The British corset brand pack some serious heritage, having been founded in 1899. Vollers’ website offers some fascinating snippets of their history; I love the fact that the company occupied the same factory space for over 90 years! All of the brand’s corsets are […]

Disclosure: This corset was purchased by The Lingerie Addict for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. If you’re a corset fan, it’s likely that you’ve heard about the infamous Corsets UK/Corset Story. They’re a relatively ‘cheap’ corset brand, offering a broad range of corset styles with tantalizing 2-for-1 offers seemingly constantly.  Almost every time I’ve seen the brand name brought up, they’ve been bad mouthed. I’ve defended […]

Within the corset community, corset seasoning can be a bit of a contentious issue. Among wearers and makers alike, there’s a distinct split between the individuals who insist upon it and those who think it’s unnecessary.  For those outside the community, the phrase can be a little confusing. I know that when I first encountered the term my immediate thoughts were of salt and pepper rather than any kind of […]

Disclosure: This lingerie was purchased for the purpose of review by The Lingerie Addict. All opinions are my own. Bordelle is one of those lingerie brands who now arguably has a ‘cult’ status; its bandage style creations are instantly recognisable. Celebrities across the globe have sported its signature ‘Angela’ dress whilst its designs can be spotted throughout major fashion press. Indeed, when I first began my forays into the lingerie […]

Disclosure: I received this camisole and short set for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. Nui Ami are a relatively young British brand, offering a delightful range of pretty and functional cup sized sleepwear. Their luxurious offerings are swathed in silk and beautiful French leavers laces; whilst I don’t consider their designs particularly boundary pushing from an aesthetic perspective, they are elegant and versatile. The colour palette […]
