Disclosure: These items were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. As someone who has never had a thigh gap, I can’t remember a time in my life where I wasn’t actively looking for solutions to alleviate chafing or as I affectionately call it, ‘chub rub.’ My thighs touch year-round so while my skirts may get shorter in the summer, I am at […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Lane Bryant’s Cacique line of undergarments is a mainstay amongst plus size shoppers. They’ve largely been unchallenged as a primary source of bras in particular because they are the most well known and universally available. My first fully fledged bra came from Lane Bryant many many years ago and I remained a loyal customer through significant changes in band and cup size. Now, […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Some of the products shown below were received as review samples. All opinions are my own. Growing up plus size, I was in need of a bra long before any of my friends even saw a single hair on their legs. I looked for supportive bras but nothing too sexy. It was also a difficult balance of finding comfort without looking frumpy. As I […]

I’ve written repeatedly about how the full bust and plus size lingerie portions of the lingerie industry have changed wildly since I started writing here. I write a lot about things like sizing expansions and marketing campaigns around here, but the styles of lingerie available have also expanding rapidly from what was available several years ago. Full bust and plus size customers now have access to bondage inspired pieces, to […]

I spent a lot of time thinking and writing about the state of plus size lingerie last year, from the way it is marketed to the types of pieces that are available. In retrospect, I feel like it was a good year for plus size lingerie. We had some progressive ad campaigns spearheaded by outspoken and unconventional spokesmodels as well as fashionable new lingerie pieces. That said, this year there are […]

I’m back today with a review of the latest from Addition Elle, whose partnership with Ashley Graham has been picked up by Nordstorm and is selling like hotcakes.

As a lingerie copywriter, I’m always especially conscious of how trends are marketed. Marketing is more than a set of pretty photos; it’s also about wording product descriptions and marketing materials in ways that will appeal to your target customer. So, for obvious reasons, I’m always interested in seeing how new trends are marketed to both the plus size and core size market. Today I wanted to talk about the […]

The lingerie industry can be hard to analyze in an objective way because so few brands and boutiques publish their statistics. Today I’m going to be relying on two boutiques that graciously have: A Sophisticated Pair and Bluestockings Boutique. Erica has actually just started to publish her series on her statistics over at A Sophisticated Pair this past week, so go here to see the updated numbers. For this article, […]

We’ve covered plus size panties and bras several times at The Lingerie Addict, but today I wanted to cover your options if you are above the standard plus size range. Panties that come in a 6X or higher can be harder to source, making it a severely underserved market. Luckily, several companies have come to the rescue and produced panties in a wide range of sizes, some up to a […]
