I wrote this article a week or so ago, but decided against publishing it. Then I thought about it more and decided this article needed to be published, but also that I should explain why I was so hesitant in the first place. And so here we are a with a blog post that’s somewhat meta and rather inconclusive, but hopefully shines a light on what seems to be a […]

The Victoria & Albert museum is without a doubt my favourite place in London. I’ve been a member of this wonderful institution since I was a teen, and it’s incredibly easy to while away countless hours in its exquisite collections of Art and Design.  They’ve curated some stunningly beautiful exhibitions (the recent Alexander McQueen retrospective and Wedding Dress exhibition spring to mind immediately). When The V&A first announced ‘Undressed: A […]

Someone once asked me what my biggest vice was. Did I have one weakness or addiction that I struggled to keep under control? For some it’s junk food. For some it’s cigarettes. For some it’s something far worse. But for me, I love to shop. Not in an occasional, every-few-weeks kind of way but more of an every-waking-moment-I-can kind of way. Yeah, it’s a problem but luckily I’ve taught myself […]

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 […]

It is this seamless integration of innerwear and outerwear, of the intimate and the exposed, that has positioned La Perla […]

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 […]

Disclosure: This lingerie was purchased for the purpose of review by The Lingerie Addict. All opinions are my own. Bordelle is one of those lingerie brands who now arguably has a ‘cult’ status; its bandage style creations are instantly recognisable. Celebrities across the globe have sported its signature ‘Angela’ dress whilst its designs can be spotted throughout major fashion press. Indeed, when I first began my forays into the lingerie […]

Before the “Fifty Shades of Grey” phenomenon had the lingerie industry referencing psuedo-bondage in the form of strappy harnesses and cage bras, there was Fräulein Kink. Their playful fringed blindfolds were reminiscent of coquettish eyelashes, and helped earn the brand a spot on The Lingerie Addict Awards in 2012. These early collections introduced the idea that erotic boudoir wear didn’t have to be intimidating. Delicately fashioned in luxe materials, these […]

While there are relatively few networking and professionalization events in the lingerie industry, one of the most revered is also one of the newest — The Oxford Conference of Corsetry, held over the summer at Oxford College. For those unfamiliar, The Oxford Conference of Corsetry (otherwise known as OCOC) is a three-year-old event, created by corsetmakers, for corsetmakers, and dedicated to the study of corsetry. People fly in from all […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie to review free of charge. All opinions are my own. Helen Valk Varavin is one of those names I’ve seen pop up fairly often in the online lingerie world, particularly in the realm of Etsy designers. I must admit, however, that I never really made much effort to actively seek out her designs; the majority of what I’d seen was soft silk pieces which, […]
