Items for review were provided by Elila Lingerie. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I’ve been window shopping for Elila bras online for ages, especially since their new Glamour line has been featured in Cora’s Curve roundup. They’re also one of the few brands making 40+ band bras in a truly wide variety of cup sizes, so I wanted to check them out. Elila generously sent me four bras, […]

Today I’m showcasing 10 brands making great plus size lingerie in 40+ bands. These brands include both North American and British brands, but all are easily available to the US customer.

For the first time ever, I’ve found myself almost totally unexcited about the upcoming lingerie season. Part of this may be general bra fatigue (I see a lot of bras at work!) but most of it is simply the feeling that I have seen all of these pieces before. While I still love lingerie and regularly find pieces that I adore, the industry as a whole seems more driven by […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Today’s review features a slightly unusual product. Rather than being a garment such as a bra or panty from a lingerie line, it’s what you might consider a lingerie accessory/gadget. Rixie Clip is the sort of thing that, at first glance, seems a bit “As Seen on TV,” but I found it to be much more […]

All products featured in this article were purchased by me. All thoughts and opinions are my own. While I talk exclusively about lingerie here on TLA, if you’ve ever seen my Instagram account you know that my daily wardrobe is extremely vintage-inspired. Over the past few years, I’ve found myself drawn almost exclusively to vintage-style dresses, both authentic and reproduction. As my interest in vintage fashion grew, I found one […]

There’s a reason I write for a blog called The Lingerie Addict. Besides the amazing community that TLA has introduced me to, I also happen to have a serious lingerie addiction. There is something about lingerie that is so personal and sensual while remaining a functional and a necessary part of my life.

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links The second lingerie sale spotlight for this month focuses on small bust bras. As Sweets of Sweet Nothings mentioned recently, bra size categories like “small bust” and “full bust” are fraught with identity politics, making it difficult to come up with a list of options for this segment of the market. For the purposes of this blog post, I’ve used a more or less […]

Let’s be frank: I’m busy. You’re busy. We’re all so busy these days! Who has time to waste on uncomfortable or poor fitting clothes? Our time is precious, so it’s no wonder we look for shortcuts and hacks to make life a little easier so we can focus on the more important tasks at hand. Being an avid DIY-er I’ve tested out tons of tricks to fix my wardrobe malfunctions […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. After my column last week, Cora emailed me to ask a question that I hear a lot: “Since the selection of lingerie in sizes 20 and up is so awful, where can we send TLA readers for nice stuff?” I suspect she’s not the only one asking that! Once you get past a US 18, the lingerie pickings become much narrower. Today I’ve […]
