garter belt

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie to review free of charge. All opinions are my own. I’m one of those people that absolutely despises wearing tights; to me, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than those pinching waistbands and baggy crotches. Discovering stockings and suspenders in my early teens was somewhat of a revelation: all of the comfort that I’d been missing in tights but with added glamour. Consequently, after all these […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Seven and a half years ago, I wrote my very first lingerie blog post on the Falke Lunelle Thigh Highs. Since then, I’ve bought and worn these stockings at least a dozen times, and they continue to enchant me. Almost a decade later, I still remember the rush of excitement when I first saw those embroidered peacock feathers. Despite a lifetime of wearing […]

Dottie’s Delights has always had an incredible talent for designing collections that pay homage to the retro aesthetic while remaining accessible and modern. This season designer Stephanie Kuhr has moved beyond her popular mid-century aesthetic to include silhouettes derived from the 1920s and 30s for her most glamorous collection yet. Just as in the 1927 silent film Metropolis for which the collection was named, the collection has one foot in […]

Disclosure: This article contains affiliate links. I try not to be too snobbish about my lingerie. After all, it’s supposed to be fun. But if there’s one place I’ll admit to being a little snooty, it’s garter belts. Try as I might (and I admit to not trying very hard), I will never stop proclaiming the virtues of the vintage style, 6-strap suspender belt. Yes, I know most folks just […]

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 […]

Disclosure: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links. I’m the first to admit that I’m a little desensitized to lingerie – I spend so much time around it that it takes something seriously special to get me excited. Brands like Agent Provocateur don’t usually capture my imagination (with the exception of their Soiree collection, as […]

Kiss Me Deadly (aka: one of my most favorite lingerie brands in all the world) is having a massive moving sale at the moment with items up to 80% off. KMD doesn’t have very many sales (they’re a lot more likely to enclose free gifts instead), and they have never had a sale with this prices this low. Truth be told, they probably […]

Paying homage to a retro aesthetic while still remaining accessible and modern is a delicate balancing act. Doing so while having a distinct, and recognizable, point of view is even rarer. Such is the talent of handmade, indie label, Dottie’s Delights. From the early days of pointy bras and girdles to her recent ‘Sheer Show’ collaboration with Mosh, designer Stephanie Kuhr continues to impress with vintage-inspired collections that feel really […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Trends come and trends go, but some things last forever. There are certain classics that transcend the confines of time. This holds true even in today’s “fast fashion” culture — whether it’s a specific color or shape that compliments a wide range of people, or a certain fabric or treatment that stands out from the rest. Timeless trends are born to withstand the […]
