Dottie’s Delights has returned to its self-proclaimed cheesecake roots in this adorable lookbook that is, indeed, sweeter than cake. It’s a candy-colored confection of pinks and reds, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The cherry on top of this delicious new collection? It’s modeled by Vogue and Playboy model Gia Genevieve (a huge deal for a small indie label). The collection is titled “Soda Shop” and was inspired by the […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. With the holidays officially here, you may be hanging stockings by the fire or donning wooly socks to warm your chilled toes. Today I’m reviewing Gio Stockings, which are of an entirely different nature. Gio’s nylon stockings are made in England on original Reading knitting machines, “just as they were made in the 1960s.” […]

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 […]

Dottie’s Delights has always had an incredible talent for designing collections that pay homage to the retro aesthetic while remaining accessible and modern. This season designer Stephanie Kuhr has moved beyond her popular mid-century aesthetic to include silhouettes derived from the 1920s and 30s for her most glamorous collection yet. Just as in the 1927 silent film Metropolis for which the collection was named, the collection has one foot in […]

Please note that some of these photos may be NSFW. Playful Promises has done it again, putting out a flawlessly executed lookbook that perfectly captures the glamorous, playful spirit for which they are known. In an exciting triumph for the brand, blonde bombshell (and Playboy model) Gia Genevieve and famed editorial photographer Tatiana Gerusova came together in NYC to shoot the brand’s newest lookbook. This is a huge deal for […]

This blog post contains images which are NSFW. There is a saying in the fashion industry that everything old is new again, and this is perhaps no more true than in the world of lingerie. The basic silhouette of the bra and panty has remained unchanged for decades, and a global, interconnected intimate apparel industry (run by only a handful of major companies) means less variation in both style and […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Now that the weather’s growing colder (in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway), I’m thinking more and more about seasonally-appropriate autumnal accessories. This is peak robe season for me. It’s cool enough that I’ll want to throw something over my shoulders in the morning or late at night, but not so cold that I’m spending all my time in fluffy fleece lounge sets. This is […]

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 […]

Items for review were provided by Elila Lingerie. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Edited: I went back and purchased the Wireless Longline Bra myself and have added it to the review.  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 […]

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 […]
