This is my final ebay lingerie roundup for The Lingerie Addict! In keeping with last week’s post, the pieces below are the second round of my absolute favorite ebay lingerie. Going out on a theme would have been fun too, but I think — from Marie Antoinette to Birds & Beasts, Bond Girl to Geometry — we’ve covered a lot of ground, and done it with plenty of skin showing. While like […]

Sadly, my tenure at TLA is over, but I’ve got two more posts to go and I intend to make the most of them. I considered a lot of different possibilities for these posts (examples include Imperator Furiosa of Mad Max: Fury Road and ‘Wearable Art’), but what I settled on was the simplest, and the most personal: showering you with my favorite pieces of lingerie on ebay. Some of them are unbelievable […]

The inspiration behind this week’s roundup comes from the fantastical pieces I came across this week (truly, some great listings), and from finally seeing Into the Woods. Fairy tales in their original form were intended for adults as much, if not more than they were for children, and I loved how the movie tapped into the darker, more adult side of the stories we’ve all grown up with. The pieces in this post […]

For the past few weeks, roundups have been pretty seasonal, so I wanted to continue the streak with our theme this week, Summer Noir. Hot weather doesn’t necessarily have to mean bright colors or pastels. Black lingerie is sexy year round, but there’s something special about wearing it in the summer. At a time of year when everything is bright and blooming, indulging in your darker, edgier side can feel […]

I’ve definitely snuck swimwear pieces into previous lingerie roundups (look for the ^ next to a listing), so given the season it only seemed appropriate to finally give swimwear a post of its very own. The line between lingerie and swimwear is a fluid one — often the only distinctions are the fabrics used and the standards of construction. Swimwear and lingerie show the same kind of trends (high-cut vs. […]

“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” -Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada   Now, I could tell you that this post was originally intended for the middle of this winter, as a sort of ‘hothouse garden’ concept. I think the idea of that sounds lovely. This winter was awful, and long, and really, what better time is there for some flowers to brighten your top drawer and your day than when you’re trying to […]

Hi folks! I do hope you enjoyed the past few weeks’ departure from normal ebay roundups, but for today’s post we’re going back to classic roundup structure. Bridal lingerie is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and it’s coming to you this week in honor of my best friend’s engagement.. :) Ebay has a surprisingly diverse, and genuinely lovely collection of wedding lingerie, from vintage silk […]

In this, the last (for now) of our Ebay How-to articles, I’ll be focusing on the often daunting prospect of trying to find vintage or antique lingerie on ebay. There is definitely the potential for high rewards here, but the process of finding what you’re looking is quite different for this type of lingerie. In this article, I’ll explain the differences, and show you the ins and outs of trying […]

Hi folks! Last week, for part 1 of our ebay brand profiles, I pretty much focused on the brands with the largest ebay presences, like Agent Provocateur and La Perla. This week, the focus is on brands with fewer listings, and generally less traffic, ranging from Myla and Chantal Thomass with several hundred listings, to Hopeless and Murmur, which often have no listings at all. As I go through the brands […]

Thank you for the great comments on last week’s ebay how-to, Common Misconceptions about Buying Lingerie on Ebay : ) This week, I’ll take you through some of my personal experiences with ebay when it comes to brands and sellers, and show how you can use these insights to spend your time and money better when shopping on ebay for lingerie. I’ve broken each brand’s profile down into volume (# of listings), […]
