[Disclosure: These items were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own.] I wear a lot of pink. Like, a lot. The desk where I’m writing this is pink, my hair is usually a little pink, and yep, most of my lingerie is pink. So naturally, when The Pink Pantaloon Co. introduced themselves, I was all. over. it. An entirely pink lingerie company? Yes, please. All of […]

Disclosure: I received this set from Boux Avenue for review purposes free of charge. All opinions are my own. I’ve been a fan of the Boux Avenue brand for several years. On the British high-street lingerie scene it certainly stands out, offering one of the widest size ranges in consistently fashion-forward designs at a relatively accessible price point.  Its brick-and-mortar stores offer a lovely shopping experience of attentive staff, pleasant […]

The Victoria & Albert museum is without a doubt my favourite place in London. I’ve been a member of this wonderful institution since I was a teen, and it’s incredibly easy to while away countless hours in its exquisite collections of Art and Design.  They’ve curated some stunningly beautiful exhibitions (the recent Alexander McQueen retrospective and Wedding Dress exhibition spring to mind immediately). When The V&A first announced ‘Undressed: A […]

Disclosure: These items were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Sock It To Me is a brand based in Portland, Oregon. I recognized them from their days in the sock-only trade: I was, and am, a big consumer of novelty socks. Their designs are quirky, often inspired by popular culture, and the quality of their products tends to be pretty high (the store’s […]

Disclosure: This product was purchased for the purpose of review by The Lingerie Addict. All opinions are my own. Most corset aficionados have heard of Vollers. The British corset brand pack some serious heritage, having been founded in 1899. Vollers’ website offers some fascinating snippets of their history; I love the fact that the company occupied the same factory space for over 90 years! All of the brand’s corsets are […]

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. The Stylish Fox has been selling hosiery online since 2010. Retina Vita Bassa is their first foray into private label products. Working with an Italian manufacturer, they designed and created these low-rise fishnets with a lace waistband. I field tested these fishnets to see how they held up – pun intended! The fishnets arrived wrapped in […]

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Robes and loungewear seem to have picked up momentum over the past year. I’ve certainly caught the bug, and have taken to wearing silky lingerie robes as luxe cardigan alternatives for daywear. This Fringe Robe in silk chiffon by Norwegian Wood ($299 CAD / roughly $219 USD) is delightfully versatile for such a statement piece. Like many […]

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Decadent Designs is a Toronto based alternative fashion line creating handmade womenswear. Though they aren’t a lingerie brand, Decadent Designs does offer several “neck corset” designs which fit well in the lingerie accessories niche. Today I’ll be reviewing the Lace Neck Corset, which shares certain similarities with traditional corsetry. The collar is well proportioned, with pleasing lines […]

Disclosure: This corset was purchased by The Lingerie Addict for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. If you’re a corset fan, it’s likely that you’ve heard about the infamous Corsets UK/Corset Story. They’re a relatively ‘cheap’ corset brand, offering a broad range of corset styles with tantalizing 2-for-1 offers seemingly constantly.  Almost every time I’ve seen the brand name brought up, they’ve been bad mouthed. I’ve defended […]

I’m a little addicted to corsets. It’s not enough that I make my own, I feel compelled to collect some of the gorgeous work created by my colleagues. In my collection, I have several Sparklewren corsets. A Sparklewren corset is an art piece as much as a garment and I admit some of them I treasure purely for their aesthetic value – they’ve rarely seen wear. The notable exception is […]
