I’ve been feeling a little out of it lately. A combination of moving and fatigue and not having really taken a vacation since my honeymoon, all seem to have caught up to me at once and for the first time in years, I’m finding myself struggling a bit. I still love lingerie, and I still love The Lingerie Addict, and I still love doing this, but as I realize that […]

It was the Oxford Conference of Corsetry just over a week ago, and in its run-up I spent most of my time getting pretty obsessive about corsets. I’ve been neglecting other areas of lingerie to dedicate my time to crafting these exquisite, waist-altering garments. Consequently, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the significance of the corset. As a lingerie designer, corsets to me have always existed in their […]

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 […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie free of charge by Chantelle. All opinions are my own. Chantelle is one of those lingerie brands that I’ve seen countless times in department stores, but never actually made a conscious effort to discover for myself. Their bras have always seemed pretty to me, but not exciting enough to pique my interest — my main associations with them are of delicate lace and embroidered […]

That show had me hooked every week like clockwork, and I lived, I mean lived, for the lingerie moments. Over the course of the season, I saw everything from La Perla to Victoria’s Secret to Whimsy to Stella McCartney. That high-low mix, the combination of the luxurious […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Kiss Me Deadly (aka: one of my most favorite lingerie brands in all the world) is having a massive moving sale at the moment with items up to 80% off. KMD doesn’t have very many sales (they’re a lot more likely to enclose free gifts instead), and they have never had a sale with this prices this low. Truth be told, they probably […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Like many people, I spent the first few days of March binge-watching House of Cards on Netflix, and while I won’t share my thoughts on this new season (just in case someone reading this hasn’t watched yet), I feel like I agree with almost everyone when I say that I love Claire Underwood’s style. The character’s clothing is absolutely a window into her […]

I’ll be honest: GC2B’s chest binder is not an especially glamorous piece of lingerie. But as my father likes to say, if you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door. That is, if you can make a product that makes a normally unpleasant experience manageable, everyone will want what you’re selling, glamorous or no. GC2B, a company that advertises their product as “the perfect […]

Rago Shapewear’s Lacette Corselette is one of the most popular items of lingerie in existence. Most everyone has seen this vintage-style, all-in-one girdle somewhere. I know it was one of the first pieces I lingerie I ever coveted, and while it’s ostensibly a piece of shapewear, I also think it looks pretty sweet as boudoir-friendly lingerie too. Oh, and did I mention it’s available in plus sizes? Because this item […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. In a lot of ways, shapewear gets a bad rap, and that’s in no small part due to the preponderance of boring, beige, Ace bandage-style bike shorts. Yes, they might get the job done on the shaping and smoothing front, but they’re just so plain boring (or, dare I say it, ugly), that shapewear conjures up feelings of duty and dread as opposed […]
