Today’s guest post was written by Emma Parker, Founder and Director of Playful Promises, a UK-based lingerie label known for trendy designs that manage to be vintage-inspired yet thoroughly modern. Some time ago there was an article on the Lingerie Addict that raised some concern in me. It was well-meant and intended to help people make better ethical choices when purchasing lingerie. However to me,  it read as a list […]

I just can’t even come up with the words to describe my feelings for this gown. If ever there was a dressing gown that embodied Hollywood glamour – that was pure, undiluted, old school, cigarette holder, dripping jewels allure – this is it. The Emerald & Palm Dressing Gown has no shame about being what it is, and what it is over the top, lascivious, inspired luxury. There’s no attempt […]

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Robes and loungewear seem to have picked up momentum over the past year. I’ve certainly caught the bug, and have taken to wearing silky lingerie robes as luxe cardigan alternatives for daywear. This Fringe Robe in silk chiffon by Norwegian Wood ($299 CAD / roughly $219 USD) is delightfully versatile for such a statement piece. Like many […]

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Decadent Designs is a Toronto based alternative fashion line creating handmade womenswear. Though they aren’t a lingerie brand, Decadent Designs does offer several “neck corset” designs which fit well in the lingerie accessories niche. Today I’ll be reviewing the Lace Neck Corset, which shares certain similarities with traditional corsetry. The collar is well proportioned, with pleasing lines […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. February is such a great month for lingerie. I mean, come on; Nylon was patented on February 16th in 1937. How much more relevant to the lingerie industry can you get? Here are 10 lingerie sets for the 10 most important days in February. (Hint: They’re not Valentine’s Day.) For that day you miss your train Coco’s Retro Closet is one of those Etsy shops […]

I can’t take the credit for this week’s stunning lingerie discovery. That has to go to Tiah Eckhardt, fellow lingerie blogger and renowned lingerie model (if you’ve seen Dita Von Teese’s latest campaign, then you’ve seen her). Tiah tagged me on Instagram basically saying I had to see this designer, and you know what? She was right. For me, these Lingerie Wishlist features are about showing off the most opulent, […]

Janay was the first brand I covered for TLA about a year and a half ago (wow, time flies when you’re having fun!). Their debut collection was notable for its bras with unique center gore details and its strappy suspender belts that criss-crossed over the hips. I was delighted to see that this small British label is continuing to thrive and has released a sophomore collection that has all of […]

I’ve spent a lot of time recently pondering the term ‘handmade’; it’s a difficult word to dissect at the best of times but becomes particularly complex in the realm of lingerie. As a lingerie designer, a large part of my brand currently relies on the notion that my products are ‘handmade’. Almost every garment that leaves my studio doors was sewn by me from start to finish. Yet as we […]

What better way to start the new year than with the discovery of a gorgeous and glamorous new lingerie label? Liliana Casanova is making the kind of lingerie that is truly rare in today’s world. Handcrafted one piece at a time in her Paris studio, French silk and laces are transformed into incredibly lush and romantic pieces that are far too pretty to cover up. It’s all so dreamy and […]

Note: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own. Mosh and Dottie’s Delights are unaffiliated with this review. I have to admit, I am the kind of person who buys holiday gifts for herself as well as for others. Last year, I treated myself to some lingerie, including the Sheer Show Pantsuit from Mosh + Dottie’s Delights. I’d been eyeing this piece for […]
