It seems indie designers aren’t the only ones giving up on traditional fashion seasons. As even the very largest fashion houses begin to adopt a more ‘seasonless’ approach, Agent Provocateur is leading the way in some respects by releasing a new collection, complete with brand new lookbook, every few months. Their latest range is a collaboration with famed shoes, handbags, and accessories designer Charlotte Olympia, who is perhaps most well-known […]

  A few weeks ago, I had the incredible honor and privilege of being invited to Paris by Promosalons, the global network of French tradeshows, to visit some of their flagship exhibitions including Maison & Objet, Mode Who’s Next, Bijorhca, and, of course, the Salon International de la Lingerie. Along with a delegation of journalists from the U.S., Korea, China, and Japan, I was taken on a whirlwind tour of […]

I’ve been feeling a little out of it lately. A combination of moving and fatigue and not having really taken a vacation since my honeymoon, all seem to have caught up to me at once and for the first time in years, I’m finding myself struggling a bit. I still love lingerie, and I still love The Lingerie Addict, and I still love doing this, but as I realize that […]

I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, but I can hardly believe it’s February. The end of 2015 felt like it was only a week or so ago, but here we are, already several days into the start of the second month. Of course, on The Lingerie Addict, the month of February also means a lingerie giveaway. As TLA has grown, the giveaways we’ve been able to offer […]

Disclosure: This blog post is sponsored by Affinitas Intimates Exciting news today, lingerie addicts! I’m pleased to announce a brand new partnership with world-renowned lingerie brand Affinitas Intimates. If you’ve been interested in lingerie for any length of time, the name ‘Affinitas’ probably sounds familiar to you. While the core Affinitas label is a lingerie powerhouse in its own right, the sub-brand, Parfait by Affinitas, offers perhaps one of the […]

After a bit of a slow-down, 2015 was a great year for lingerie blogs. Sometimes, it feels like this little blog niche is just barely hanging on, especially when compared to the larger (and more well-known) worlds of fashion and beauty blogging. As a group, intimate apparel focused bloggers are a rare sort. There are usually only a few dozen of us active at any one time, and while we’re […]

Today’s guest post is by longtime TLA reader C.L. Bigelow, a sculptor who works in mixed media. Her materials of choice are primarily cast-off materials and what is considered detritus. She calls her approach “making one new whole from many disparate parts.” You can see her work at clbigelow-studios.com. Today’s lingerie marketers are getting smarter about including models with a wider range of body sizes, genders, sexual orientations, skin colors, […]

We’re (briefly?) resurrecting the “Why Do Lingerie Brands…?” feature…which is basically me asking Catherine Clavering of Kiss Me Deadly questions my readers ask me and then posting her responses here. One of the things I love most about Catherine is that she’s willing to answer the questions most other lingerie professionals avoid. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes in intimate apparel; decisions that seem totally random […]

At first glance, it may seem a bit strange to have a £500 corset as this week’s Sale Lingerie of the Week. Yes, it’s been reduced from £1200 (just over $1700 USD) to less than half that (just over $700 USD), but that’s still an undeniably lavish sum for most people. Yet Sparklewren is undeniably worth it. If you’ve dreamed of owning a Sparklewren creation, and if her couture designs […]

I can’t take the credit for this week’s stunning lingerie discovery. That has to go to Tiah Eckhardt, fellow lingerie blogger and renowned lingerie model (if you’ve seen Dita Von Teese’s latest campaign, then you’ve seen her). Tiah tagged me on Instagram basically saying I had to see this designer, and you know what? She was right. For me, these Lingerie Wishlist features are about showing off the most opulent, […]
