All products featured in this article were purchased by me. All thoughts and opinions are my own. While I talk exclusively about lingerie here on TLA, if you’ve ever seen my Instagram account you know that my daily wardrobe is extremely vintage-inspired. Over the past few years, I’ve found myself drawn almost exclusively to vintage-style dresses, both authentic and reproduction. As my interest in vintage fashion grew, I found one […]

Disclosure: This lingerie was purchased by The Lingerie Addict for the purpose of review. I’m fully prepared to put my hands up and admit that I’m a bit of a lingerie snob. Generally speaking, only the luxury side of the industry ever attracts my attention. It’s the exquisite fabrics and attention to detail that I love about lingerie, and they’re features that tend to be entirely lacking in the more […]

My fascination with glamour began with a musical called 42nd Street. The visual spectacle of dazzling costumes combined with dancing was enough to make me dream of either being in a musical, or creating the glamour behind it. Around that same time period, there was another form of glamorous entertainment, known as American burlesque. Whilst musical film and burlesque are different in many ways, they both provide a sense of glamour, […]

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 […]

Now that it’s April, I’m officially welcoming back TLA’s seasonal “Swimwear of the Week” feature with my most favorite print of all time… leopard print. Specifically, I’m digging this Lucy B High Waist Leopard Print Bikini. Maybe I was inspired by this weekend’s Viva Las Vegas, or maybe I just can’t get enough of that pinup aesthetic (big knickers forever!), but this suit looks like it would be perfect for […]

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 […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. There’s no point in pretending otherwise… I’m using National Cat Day as an excuse to dedicate an entire article to leopard print lingerie. My love of leopard print is pretty well documented on TLA; it’s my absolute favorite lingerie pattern by a super wide margin. Before today, I never really thought about why I love a good leopard print (and let’s be honest, […]
