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 that’s low enough for the occasional guilt free lingerie treat. It’s a […]

All pieces reviewed were provided by Cosabella. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I wrote about the marketing behind Cosabella’s new “Extended” line awhile back. While many people were interested in the repercussions for the plus size market, many people also asked me what the new line was actually like. Today we’re going to table the industry talk and focus on the actual pieces themselves. I was sent a […]

Note: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own Chantal Thomass is one of my all time favourite lingerie designers. Several of her sets feature heavily in my everyday lingerie wardrobe and her lookbooks regularly give me heart palpitations. Imagine my reaction when I discovered that she’d turned her hand to my most adored lingerie era, the 1920s, and even recreated […]

Disclosure: I purchased this lingerie for myself, Ludique have no affiliation with this review. Ludique are an independent lingerie brand from Romania whose striking designs and stunning editorial imagery have been catching my eye for the past year or so.  Their pieces are unashamedly daring and fashion forward, specialising in softer ‘boudoir’ styles. Their use of eyelash lace, daring cut outs and elastic strapping are all very in line with […]

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 […]

And while some folks might think of underwear as an intimate gift (no pun intended), what’s a few knickers between friends? For my part, I don’t think there’s any such thing as owning too much underwear; you can always stand to have more panties in your lingerie drawer. One of the things I like most about […]

Disclosure: This blog post is sponsored by Cheekygram. It’s no secret that a great pair of panties can vastly improve your day. When we talk about underwear around here, it’s very often in terms of comfort (spoiler alert: we’re 100% team comfy knickers at The Lingerie Addict), but there’s something to be said for underwear that’s fun too. Knickers that aren’t just functional, but that also manage to be funny […]

Disclosure: I received this set free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. My ongoing love affair with lace is well documented – so there’s a pretty good chance that if you show me lingerie that uses fine French leavers lace, I’m going to be rather enamored. However, when I discovered new Australian brand Silent Assembly, it wasn’t their beautiful fabrics that caught my eye most – […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I have always loved a high-waisted knicker. The aesthetic of this garment is a nod to a bygone era, and that, combined with the functional purpose, gives me two reasons to enjoy wearing them. Traditionally, a high-waisted knicker is meant to compress the lower tummy area for a smooth line under clothing. Recently, I’ve noticed an array of gorgeous knickers with a different purpose […]
