plus size

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 […]

Items for this review were provided by Addition Elle. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone had a great holiday break. 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. I wanted to see if the line had changed any since last season, as […]

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 […]

This robe was purchased by yours truly with my own money. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Like most reviewers, I usually photograph and take pictures of lingerie pieces while they are brand new. After all, lots of things can happen to a piece of lingerie in a year or so: food and drink spillage, fabric pilling due to washing, color fading, etc. I’m reviewing this robe today specifically because […]

Now that we’re getting back into the seasons of cooler temperatures and long pants, I’ve been thinking a lot about comfortable underwear. While my personal taste tends to lean towards the frillier stuff, I know cooler weather is a time when people tend to restock the basics. This list includes everything from handmade black mesh panties to novelty panties. All of the pieces on this list fall into the $12 […]

Please note some photos may be NSFW. Sometimes it’s hard to get excited about lingerie when you can’t see yourself wearing it. The industry’s standards of beauty and femininity remain rigidly unrealistic, and many women (myself included) feel left out. As with most innovation in the industry, it is the independent brands that are affecting change. March & August, a handmade Canadian brand, have spent the last year demonstrating a […]

For the past few months I’ve been yearning and searching to rediscover my love of lingerie. Some of my feelings are because I blog a lot for work, so I simply see a ton of bras. Some of it is because this season all the lingerie kind of looks the same and I’m someone who tends to fall in love with unique and slightly kitschy pieces. But part of it has […]

The Glamour Set for this review was provided by Elila. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  If you haven’t read my first review of Elila, go back and start there. After I reviewed the samples that were sent, I was so impressed with the line that I wanted to try the rest of it. I picked up two colors of the longline wireless bras to go under my vintage-style […]
