lingerie of the week

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 […]

While this is very much the season for comfy, cozy, fuzzy robes, it’s also the season for beach vacations and much-needed escapes to warmer climes. I first saw this robe at Lingerie Market back in February, and I’ve been waiting patiently until it was available for sale. Aesethetically, what I like most about Underprotection’s Anika Robe (apart from the loose, unstructured style), is its painterly abstract print. It reminds me […]

When I first heard Journelle planned to launch a complete lingerie collection, I have to confess my first reaction was, “It’s about time!” Journelle has, unsurprisingly, dabbled a little in lingerie before; their Bardot Short PJ (shown below) has a permanent spot on my want list. But this is the first time they’ve debuted an entire bra and panty collection, and what is there to say but “I’m in love?” […]

One of the things I’ve never shared about these Lingerie of the Week features is that they share a dual purpose. Yes, part of the point is to share what I think is new, cool, exciting, and interesting. But the other part, the other purpose, to these posts is to create a sort of archive, a font of lingerie memories that others can access. So often, I recall a brand […]

It’s starting to look like Seattle’s little bit of summer is already over. While the weather is still gorgeous outside (I plan to take a little tea break and sit in the sun right after publishing this), the high temperatures from 4th of July weekend are already gone and most days are hovering right around the mid-70s. A very comfortable temperature to be sure, but not necessarily what most people […]

Maybe it’s just the fact that I want to save up for a nice vacation, but after years of feeling disenchanted with the world of budget lingerie, I find myself newly excited again. Some of that, I’m sure, has to do with the size range available in this sector. While many ‘straight size’ brands are reluctant to expand into plus sizing (and even the ones that have often refuse to […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Very often, my pick for lingerie of the week is a set or item I can’t just stop thinking about, and today’s choice is no exception. Aubade is a French luxury brand that’s perhaps most famous stateside for their annual lingerie calendars, but the label is seen by many as emblematic of French-style lingerie (right up there with names like Chantal Thomass, Fifi […]

I’ve got a lot of feels about Sugar Lace Lingerie right now. I first discovered the brand through Instagram (likely by trawling one of the many lingerie-related tags), and almost immediately, I felt compelled to follow them. There’s just something so light and playful and whimsical about this label; it’s a reminder that lingerie can (and, whenever possible, should) be fun. I spend so much time immersed in the business […]
