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 […]

Disclosure: This lingerie was purchased for the purpose of review by The Lingerie Addict. All opinions are my own. Bordelle is one of those lingerie brands who now arguably has a ‘cult’ status; its bandage style creations are instantly recognisable. Celebrities across the globe have sported its signature ‘Angela’ dress whilst its designs can be spotted throughout major fashion press. Indeed, when I first began my forays into the lingerie […]

Disclosure: I received this camisole and short set for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. Nui Ami are a relatively young British brand, offering a delightful range of pretty and functional cup sized sleepwear. Their luxurious offerings are swathed in silk and beautiful French leavers laces; whilst I don’t consider their designs particularly boundary pushing from an aesthetic perspective, they are elegant and versatile. The colour palette […]

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 […]

Note: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own. Mosh and Dottie’s Delights are unaffiliated with this review. I have to admit, I am the kind of person who buys holiday gifts for herself as well as for others. Last year, I treated myself to some lingerie, including the Sheer Show Pantsuit from Mosh + Dottie’s Delights. I’d been eyeing this piece for […]

Disclosure: I was sent these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I talk a lot about lingerie – it’s my job. I write about intricate laces, luxury fabrics and hand-constructed foundations. But no matter how many gorgeous bras, corsets and babydolls I fawn over, when it’s time to do my own underwear shopping, I repeatedly find myself gravitating towards fuss-free, comfy basics. While I […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie to review free of charge. All opinions are my own. Helen Valk Varavin is one of those names I’ve seen pop up fairly often in the online lingerie world, particularly in the realm of Etsy designers. I must admit, however, that I never really made much effort to actively seek out her designs; the majority of what I’d seen was soft silk pieces which, […]

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.” […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie to review free of charge. All opinions are my own. I’m one of those people that absolutely despises wearing tights; to me, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than those pinching waistbands and baggy crotches. Discovering stockings and suspenders in my early teens was somewhat of a revelation: all of the comfort that I’d been missing in tights but with added glamour. Consequently, after all these […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Seemingly overnight, San Francisco snapped from Indian summer to the briskness of late fall. No more sundresses and flats – hello scarves, turtlenecks, and of course… cute tights. Fiore hosiery sent me three pantyhose samples to review, retailing from $6.95-$8.95. I also have one pair of Fiore tights which I had already purchased. Fit Fiore […]
