Even if you’re not one for vintage-inspired fashions, it’s hard to deny the charm and appeal of retro lingerie. There’s a polish and sophistication that encourages the wearer to hold their head higher and put a little sashay in their step (a six-strap garter belt and silky stockings will do that to […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. 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 […]

If you’ve never heard the name Stockings & Romance before, they were a vintage-inspired lingerie brand that has recently gone out of business. I last mentioned them about a year ago, but in a lingerie industry that’s become ever more-crowded, it seems they just couldn’t get the market share to stay afloat. Girdlebound, a specialty retailer of retro shapewear, still has some of their items in stock, and this ‘Seduction’ […]

It’s been several years since The Lingerie Addict published one of its most popular articles, Everything You Need to Know About Pin-Up Lingerie. And the trend just isn’t slowing down. There’s a certain charm in pin-up lingerie where sexily sculpted bullet bras and girdles are tempered with whimsy and sass. Few brands capture this playfulness as successfully as vintage inspired brand Lucy B Lingerie. They were last year’s best pin-up/retro […]

TLA’s long love affair with Kiss Me Deadly goes way back. Their retro inspired pieces show up again and again in lust lists and lingerie picks of the week, for good reason. Kiss Me Deadly has such a unique point of view, translating vintage silhouettes in a way that is not only modern but unapologetically strong and empowered. Each season their lookbooks (featuring the iconic Morgana) are hotly anticipated, transporting […]

Many of you know that I used to be a stockings blogger, and though I don’t wear girdles and garter belts as often as I used to, I can still understand their intimate appeal. However, I also know girdles can be kind […]

La Figurelle is a new line of shapewear out of Ireland designed by Geraldine Courtney. Frustrated by all the bland, boring, beige shapewear out there, Geraldine wanted to design a line that was pretty and feminine and romantic, but that still offered practical, comfortable shaping. La Figurelle’s current range consists of bras, waist-cinching briefs, bodysuits, and corselettes. The shapewear is available in sizes S thru XXL while the bras are […]

By: Karolina The topic of whether or not luxury lingerie is worth the price tag is not exactly original.  Yet, as my first year of teaching at lingerie school draws to an end, it’s made me reconsider the relationships of value and quality.  More and more have I been disappointed with recent lingerie purchases – high-end lingerie where you’d expect a little something extra in exchange for the hefty price […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I make no secret of my undying love for Kiss Me Deadly lingerie.  Their lingerie is flirty, sassy, sexy…and did I mention affordable?  Of all the lingerie brands I talk about on the blog, they’re one of the few I make a point of buying from every season. When Catherine, the designer behind Kiss Me Deadly, sent me the photos from her latest ad […]
