Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Today’s review features a slightly unusual product. Rather than being a garment such as a bra or panty from a lingerie line, it’s what you might consider a lingerie accessory/gadget. Rixie Clip is the sort of thing that, at first glance, seems a bit “As Seen on TV,” but I found it to be much more […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I have a lot of love for Playful Promises. Their campaigns are wonderfully cheeky and far as I’m concerned, they’re one of the few independent lingerie brands that are successfully and consistently producing fashion forward and high-quality pieces, at a price point low enough for the occasional guilt free lingerie treat. It’s a brand […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Nightprowl London is a British luxury boudoir brand, specialising in sensual pieces with exquisite textiles: French laces, Austrian embroideries, devoré velvet prints and silk satin. The colour scheme is firmly monochromatic; with the exception of a single ivory bridal range, all of Nightprowl London’s designs are in black. Given how effortlessly sexy and classic […]

All pieces reviewed were provided by Cosabella. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I wrote about the marketing behind Cosabella’s new “Extended” line awhile back. While many people were interested in the repercussions for the plus size market, many people also asked me what the new line was actually like. Today we’re going to table the industry talk and focus on the actual pieces themselves. I was sent a […]

Lingerie for review was purchased with my own money. All thoughts and opinions are my own. While Tia Lyn makes a huge range of sizes, the company particularly excels at plus size pieces. They’ve won all kinds of awards for for their plus size line and have been featured prominently at Full Figured Fashion Week for several years now. I bought these pieces back in February, so they’ve been washed […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. KS Paris (short for Kimy’s Sweeties) is a relatively young French brand inspired by elements of Japanese culture, specialising in deliciously frivolous boudoir lingerie with lashings of Chantilly lace and flirty detailing. Their lacy underthings made an appearance in TLA’s SS14 trend report from the Mode City trade show. They’re decadent in all the […]

Note: this garment was an editor purchase. My life as a genderqueer person has been a constant search for garments that are androgynous rather than strictly masculine. I’ve been quoted before on my thoughts about binders: I sometimes want to bind my chest, but I don’t like the medical feel of a lot of binders, as though gender expression is inherently about sickness and unhappiness. So I’m excited that I […]

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 […]

This set was purchased with my own funds. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This is the second blog in a series covering all of the various Polish bra brands that cater to full busts, so please go check out my first piece on Ewa Michalak if you haven’t seen it already! Comexim is the second Polish bra brand I’m covering, mostly because they’re the easiest to come by […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. The ethos of Les Lunes resonates strongly with me — the brand aims to make garments that are both stylish and easy to wear. There’s overlap between their lines of Lingerie, Active Wear, Casual Wear, and Ready to Wear, with the groups mingling and styling with both each other and an average wardrobe in […]
