Nothing sculpts the body as quickly and effectively as a well-made corset. Unfortunately, because modern clothes are often cut to a very straight proportion, the effect is often lost just as quickly. If you’ve been waist training and find your corset styling efforts thwarted by the loose waistlines of your clothes, then this is the post for you! Here are several corset accessories I’ve used to great effect to show off my cinched […]

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 I have seen all of these pieces before. While I still love lingerie and regularly find pieces I adore, the industry as a whole seems more driven by seasons and […]

The air is warm, the sun is shining, and it’s Lingerie Market Week in New York City! Twice a year, the Curvexpo lingerie trade show comes to the Big Apple and buyers from up and down the East coast converge for a whirlwind three days full of lingerie, loungewear, and swimwear. It can be a bit overwhelming — you can assume there will be little sleep this week between the […]

The fashion world loves its designers! These celebrity-status artists excite and inspire their followers each season. 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 into […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I have a lot of love for Playful Promises. Their campaigns are wonderfully cheeky and far as I’m concerned, they’re one of the few independent lingerie brands that are successfully and consistently producing fashion forward and high-quality pieces, at a price point low enough for the occasional guilt free lingerie treat. It’s a brand […]

One of the things I’ve never shared about these Lingerie of the Week features is that they share a dual purpose. Yes, part of the point is to share what I think is new, cool, exciting, and interesting. But the other part, the other purpose, to these posts is to create a sort of archive, a font of lingerie memories that others can access. So often, I recall a brand […]

When I first started my lingerie brand ‘Karolina Laskowska’ in the Summer of 2012, I was pretty optimistic about the future. The brand had begun with wholesale requests and my own online shop was doing far better than I’d expected. Everything was new and very little seemed more exciting than the prospect of finding more stockists and joining the lingerie world as a proper lingerie brand. Fast forward three years […]

Disclosure: This article contains affiliate links Mint green is the perfect shade of lingerie for summertime. It reminds me of mint iced tea, frozen peppermint patties, and cool, sparkling mojitos. It’s a color that just feels refreshing, almost like a cool compress to the eyes. This season, several lingerie brands have debuted gorgeous sets in varying shades of mint, seafoam, and pistachio (those latter two colors closely resemble mint, at […]

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. It is here that many people have an easier time expressing who they really are, since lingerie […]

Though corsets are generally thought of as the high femme purview of bridal, boudoir, and full gothic Victoriana, masculine-edged tailored chic is a look that’s been steadily gaining ground among corset designers. The word dandy now refers to an old-fashioned appreciation for classic gentlemen’s style, and in women suggests a degree of androgyny. In classic cotton shirting and wool suiting fabrics, these corsets feature details like plackets, lapels, and oversize […]
