But lingerie design is a different animal and though many designers end up expanding into other categories such as shoes, housewares and fragrances, sometimes they are hesitant to enter such a technical niche market as lingerie. Lucky for us, some of these talented fashion designers have been able to successfully make that transition over […]

My fascination with glamour began with a musical called 42nd Street. The visual spectacle of dazzling costumes combined with dancing was enough to make me dream of either being in a musical, or creating the glamour behind it. Around that same time period, there was another form of glamorous entertainment, known as American burlesque. Whilst musical film and burlesque are different in many ways, they both provide a sense of glamour, […]

Let me start this post by getting the really obvious thing out of the way first: I am now closer to turning 31 than I am to my 30th birthday. My born day is July 1st, and while I am totally looking forward to it (birthdays are cool), it doesn’t have that same momentous sense of occasion that my 30th did. To be perfectly honest, I kind of psyched myself […]

A beautiful robe can truly be a treasured item in your lingerie wardrobe. The fluidity of silk… the transparency of lace or mesh… that wonderful enveloping feeling as you slip into the robe.

While red bras and lingerie are great for the holidays, they’re also a fun choice any other time of the year! Luckily, the holidays do bring us an abundance of pretty red lingerie sets to choose from. These picks cover cup sizes DD through L and […]

A whole crop of new bras has arrived for Autumn/Winter 2014, so today I thought we’d take a look at a bunch of them together. This list includes it all: plus size bras, full figure bras, full bust bras, L cup bras, D cup bras and even luxury favorites like Fortnight and Mimi Holliday. I haven’t included many babydolls, but several of these bras also have babydoll versions if you’re […]

Beautiful lingerie is something we take seriously at The Lingerie Addict. Equally important is the environment our lingerie is worn in. We all need a special place where we can let go of our inhibitions and reveal our inner siren. Turn your bedroom into a luxurious pin-up worthy canvas, so you may display your most beautiful lingerie.

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I believe the current Dita von Teese Lingerie Collection (I don’t think they’re calling it ‘Von Follies’ anymore) is her best yet. There’s a great balance of risque and retro inspired (the ‘Madame X’ and ‘Her Sexcellency ‘sets specifically) with modern and wearable (think ‘Mancatcher,’ ‘Savoir Faire,’ and ‘Marlene’). It’s notoriously difficult for new lingerie brands, […]

Previously seen on Cora’s list o’ lust, Her Sexcellency from Von Follies by Dita Von Teese is a sleek overwire bra smoothing shapewear dress. Like Madam X, I was able to get Her Sexcellency as a special order through Dark Garden, which was one of the first US retailers of the line and threw a special meet and greet launch party with Dita herself. I […]
