Disclosure: This article contains affiliate links Journelle’s Emerging Designers Program is back for a second time, and I am incredibly excited to see this boutique continue their mission of supporting and featuring indie designers. It’s easy for any lingerie shop, but especially one with Journelle’s cachet and reputation, to simply stock the same labels as everyone else. But they’ve chosen to go in a different direction, and that’s a wonderful […]

Disclosure: This article is sponsored by Invista. There’s no denying it; athleisure has taken over the lingerie world. Sports bras, hoodies, leggings, athletic tanks – these items are no longer reserved for the gym. Instead, they’ve become a vital part of the everyday wardrobe, suitable for everything from workwear to loungewear. No company is perhaps better positioned to take advantage of this shift than the LYCRA® brand, the world famous […]

I just received some more photos from my summer NYC shoot with Lars Kommienezuspadt over over the weekend, and I had to share them here straight away. I can’t help but fall in love with Lars’ photography, even when I’m not the subject. He makes all his models – including the nonmodels like me – look exquisite, and the makeup artist he chose for this shoot, Brown Paper Doll Beauty, […]

Disclosure: This article is sponsored by Yandy.com. After 2 strong releases in spring and summer, Yandy returns to the world of bras with their autumnal “Everyday Sexy” collection. While the first two releases focused on fun, floral, lacy basics in shades of grey, peach, and blue, this season’s range takes a slightly darker turn with deep burgundy, black, and navy tones, perfect for wearing under both hoodies and holiday dresses.

A little more than a year ago, a young designer, Cristina Aielli, approached me at The Oxford Conference of Corsetry, to ask if I’d be willing to take a look at one of her designs. She was very shy, completely unassuming, and I remember how we went to a little tucked away area because she was worried about showing her work in front of others (last year’s attendees included the […]

Today’s guest post was written by Emma Parker, Founder and Director of Playful Promises, a UK-based lingerie label known for trendy designs that manage to be vintage-inspired yet thoroughly modern. Some time ago there was an article on the Lingerie Addict that raised some concern in me. It was well-meant and intended to help people make better ethical choices when purchasing lingerie. However to me,  it read as a list […]

After several seasons in a row of feeling less than excited about lingerie, Lonely still manages to pique my interest. I don’t know if it’s the textiles, the silhouettes, or the styling, but this brand feels quintessentially 21st century. More than that, it’s wearable, unforced, and low-key. The subtle variety in textures is beautiful and a nice change from variation solely through prints. Though strappy lingerie is still a trend, […]

It’s the first day back after a long weekend, and you’re probably in the middle of doing a bunch of stuff, so let’s get the important details out of the way first. Oh La La Cheri’s Romantic Fantasy Eyelash Lace Romper is fun, flirty, doesn’t take itself too seriously, is available up to a 4X, and costs under $42. I first saw this coquettish […]

I just can’t even come up with the words to describe my feelings for this gown. If ever there was a dressing gown that embodied Hollywood glamour – that was pure, undiluted, old school, cigarette holder, dripping jewels allure – this is it. The Emerald & Palm Dressing Gown has no shame about being what it is, and what it is over the top, lascivious, inspired luxury. There’s no attempt […]

If you follow fashion news, you may have caught a recent story where Hopeless Lingerie accused ASOS of design theft. According to Hopeless, ASOS copied two of their designs, the Darla Knickers and Rosemary Bralette. In a previous post on the modern day reappearance of vintage lingerie trends, I shared how Hopeless’ Darla Knickers reminded me of similar cutaway burlesque styles from the 1950s. Yet this entire fashion copyright discussion, […]
