  Though Stephanie Bodnar, the designer behind Evgenia Lingerie, has been in the lingerie business for awhile, Evgenia itself is still a very new brand. One of the most important things a fledgling brand must do is define its voice and point of view early on…lest it becomes lost in a sea of other new labels. Fortunately, Evgenia Lingerie achieves that goal admirably, and their fourth season establishes this indie […]

About a month or so ago, I found myself working in Manhattan for few weeks. While I love my new digs in California, nothing quite compares to the allure and hustle of New York. I feel invigorated when I’m in Manhattan; the city fills me with inspiration and a sense that anything’s possible. How could one not be inspired with The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The American Ballet Theatre […]

Candy floss, kitten noses, and summer sunsets… some of the best parts of life are pink. I’m sort of notorious for my love of pretty pink things, so when Cora suggested I blog about my favorite pink bras, I was super excited! But since I wear around a 32G, I’m more limited in my selection of cute fashion bras than someone who is a core size. This requires me to be much more selective in the […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links.   It’s amazing how much plus size swimwear options have changed in a relatively short period of time. A few years ago, most plus size swimwear options were bland one pieces or tankinis, with no attempt to even approach the vast variety of style or attention to detail given to swimwear in straight sizes. In just a few years, we now have a […]

When presented with a collection of white lingerie, it’s so easy to lapse into the wedding trope. Nuptials and bridal bliss and dream days and all that. While Serène Intimates could certainly do amazing things for one’s bridal trousseau (goodness knows I treated myself to a few exceptional pieces when I wed), it seems almost unfair to shortchange the label in this way. After all, one of TLA’s core principles […]

It’s time for The Lingerie Addict’s brief annual foray into the world of men’s underwear. While TLA is a fashion blog more or less written with women in mind, when I see a great pair of knickers for dudes, that little detail won’t stop me from writing about them here. In a word (or three actually), I love Menagerie. Though lace was historically a part of men and women’s dress […]

For rather obvious reasons, I’m not the sort of person who’s seduced by fantasies of time travel. I love a good costume drama (the wardrobe in Outlander is outstanding this season, by the way), but I have no desire to live in any century other than the one we’re in right now. Well, that’s not quite right. I’m super curious about the time period around the year 25,000 BCE, but […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. As a plus size consumer, I have learned to do most of my shopping online. Stores either offer limited plus sizing in-store or don’t feature my size at all so it’s pretty much a necessity. While products being only a click away may be dreamy in some regards, navigating varying size charts and unknown fabric content or quality can complicate the process. One […]

Bebaroque and TLA have a bit of a history. Many of you know I started as a stockings blogger, and they were one of the very first lingerie brands I talked about way back in 2008. In an industry that more or less focuses on sheer pantyhose or opaque tights, Bebaroque made their mark with hosiery featuring unique, jaw-dropping, completely unapologetic prints, meant to be seen and styled as the […]
