lingerie of the week

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. It’s the first day back after a long weekend, and you’re probably in the middle of doing a bunch of stuff, so let’s get the important details out of the way first. Oh La La Cheri’s Romantic Fantasy Eyelash Lace Romper is fun, flirty, doesn’t take itself too seriously, is available up to a 4X, and costs under $42. I first saw this coquettish […]

I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of a mesh dress. Obviously, it’s perfect for outerwear as part of a layered look, but a sheer dress is also excellent as lay-around-the house loungewear. Universal Standard’s Thames Fog Dress is a recent discovery, but I’m already plotting how it’d look in my wardrobe. The black or plum would be great paired with a more opaque slip or chemise […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. The real trends for plus size lingerie aren’t coming out of boutique brands and luxury labels. Rather, it’s the inexpensive, “sexy” brands of the industry that are daring to meet the needs of the growing population of size 14+ people. And while there are certainly some valid reasons for why plus size bras have to look a certain or why new brands can’t immediately […]

Lingerie (and, by association, swimwear) can feel so serious at times. There are “official” trends. An “official” color palette. Another “official” look. I got a bit wrapped up in that, and as a result, lost sight of the the stuff that first made me interested in all this. Things like discovering new brands, sharing them here, and actually talking with people what we like right now. Since I’ve loosened up […]

I’ve never been much of a swimwear person. I know how to swim, but I never spent enough time in the pool to justify buying a bathing suit very often. However, now that I’m in place where the weather is constantly, mind-numbingly gorgeous, I’m feeling the lack in my wardrobe. I’d love to go the beach or lay poolside…without worrying that I’m wearing the one swimsuit I do own to […]

I’m packing to leave for BlogHer tomorrow (I’m a speaker this year!), so there’s just enough time for a very quick Lingerie of the Week before I dash off and decide which of the roughly 6 skirts currently sitting in my suitcase are actually going to come with me. Earlier this week, Karolina asked how I stay passionate about lingerie despite looking at lingerie all the time. I made a […]

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 […]

It’s happening again. That thing where I can’t stop thinking about a particular lingerie set. Where it fills up my thoughts and my dreams and makes me obsessively check my budget, wondering if this is the day I move forward and commit…or do I dare to wait just a little while longer? Truth be told, there are two reasons behind my hesitation. One, I’ve never purchased anything from Uye Surana […]

I’ve been sitting here for the better part of an hour trying to think of a super-fashiony, sophisticated way to start off this blog post, and I can’t so I’ll just jump right to it. I love this lace. Every since I first laid eyes on this set, I knew it had to be featured on TLA. Black lace is my kryptonite, but, as you already know, lace tends to […]

I’ve been feeling a little out of it lately. A combination of moving and fatigue and not having really taken a vacation since my honeymoon, all seem to have caught up to me at once and for the first time in years, I’m finding myself struggling a bit. I still love lingerie, and I still love The Lingerie Addict, and I still love doing this, but as I realize that […]
