A Brief History Of The Lingerie Addict:
In April of 2008, The Lingerie Addict was born in a small apartment in Atlanta amidst an ever-growing collection of stockings and knickers. The blog originally filled a niche for me personally: I’d searched all over the internet for a lingerie site that helped women on a budget find lingerie that they would love. After coming up empty, I finally decided to create that space myself. I wanted to create a place that was loving, inclusive, and empowering to women all over.
My name is Cora Harrington (though for the last 4 years, I’ve blogged under the penname Treacle Tart), and when I started this blog I was working full time as a crisis counselor. After four years, I’m a full time Lingerie Addict, and my little blog has become a business. The Lingerie Addict is holding steady as the number one lingerie blog worldwide, and I recently received my one-millionth visitor.
In 2011, I expanded my range of services. Along with advertising opportunities, I now offer a wide range of social media consulting services for the discerning lingerie brand or boutique. I’ve spent the last year jump starting social media campaigns for lingerie businesses, helping brands tell their story, and of course blogging about all of my new (and old) lingerie loves.
The landscape of my life has changed tremendously in four years, and I’m grateful for it every day. Not many people get to wake up and throw themselves into something that they are passionate about, and I’m aware of how lucky I am. I couldn’t have done it without all of my readers, advertising partners, and everyone who had faith in me even when I didn’t. Thank you.
Welcome to The Lingerie Addict. I hope you’ll love it here as much as I do.
Yours in lingerie love,
The Lingerie Addict Philosophy:
One of the great joys of lingerie is that everyone can feel empowered by it. At The Lingerie Addict, we try and cover every slice of the industry. We cover high end and low-end brands, independent and mass market brands, along with all ages, body types, and sizes. One of the most heartbreakingly awful things I can hear is a woman say that no one makes lingerie for her. There is a perfect piece of lingerie out there for everyone, and I hope that I can help you find it through this blog.
Naturally, I also have a comment policy that helps maintain an atmosphere of inclusivity and polite discourse. I’m all for intellectual arguments, but have zero tolerance for anyone who is here to tell someone else how they should feel or look. I believe that this attitude is one of the things that set The Lingerie Addict apart, and it will always remain at the core of what I and this blog do.
Last, but certainly not least, if there is a subject that you don’t see covered on the blog but would like to hear more about, please let me know at email@example.com. I love publishing guest posts, especially when they help illuminate new areas or issues in the lingerie industry.
If you have any other questions, you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest.
