Items for review were provided by Elila Lingerie. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I’ve been window shopping for Elila bras online for ages, especially since their new Glamour line has been featured in Cora’s Curve roundup. They’re also one of the few brands making 40+ band bras in a truly wide variety of cup sizes, so I wanted to check them out. Elila generously sent me four bras, […]

Disclosure: This article contains affiliate links. I try not to be too snobbish about my lingerie. After all, it’s supposed to be fun. But if there’s one place I’ll admit to being a little snooty, it’s garter belts. Try as I might (and I admit to not trying very hard), I will never stop proclaiming the virtues of the vintage style, 6-strap suspender belt. Yes, I know most folks just […]

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 […]

For someone who only occasionally makes it into the water, I spend a lot of time looking at swimsuits. While I confess I don’t know nearly as much about swim as I do about intimate apparel, the more I research and learn and discover new designers, the more intrigued I am. Like lingerie, the world of swim is deceptively complex. Not only does swimwear have to be fashionable, comfortable, and […]

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. No one does silver screen glamour better than What Katie Did. 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 […]

Note: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own Chantal Thomass is one of my all time favourite lingerie designers. Several of her sets feature heavily in my everyday lingerie wardrobe and her lookbooks regularly give me heart palpitations. Imagine my reaction when I discovered that she’d turned her hand to my most adored lingerie era, the 1920s, and even recreated […]

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 […]

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 […]
