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 […]

For this months project, How to Make Your Own Slips, I will be using this Vogue pattern. Before we start, I think it is important to note that both of these slips are drafted for small busted women. I will include some alterations that will allow you to make your own slips to fit a larger chest, but they are not supportive and will not look as pictured on the packaging. […]

I couldn’t decide what I liked best – the chemise or the bra & panty set – so I’ve just put them both here for this week’s Sale Lingerie of the Week. Maybe you can choose which is best…because I know I can’t! After years of neglecting the US market, Chantal Thomass is back in full force at some of the finest lingerie boutiques across the nation. The brand is […]

There’s been a great deal of well-deserved excitement in the industry about UK-based lingerie brand Harlow & Fox. Luxury intimates, especially bras, are rarely offered beyond the DD+ range. Fit becomes much more challenging in this size range, especially when items are crafted of fine, delicate fabrics. Harlow & Fox is transforming the way full bust women view luxury lingerie, offering gorgeous lingerie in exquisite fabrics specifically designed for DD-G […]

It’s time for Part 2 of this year’s Summer/Birthday giveaway, and I am *super* excited about this one. One of my favorite things about our most recent giveaways here on TLA is that we’ve been able to host some truly luxurious, special, drop-dead-gorgeous items from brands lately. Our giveaway minimums have always been around $100, but I get so excited when we’re giving away an item that’s valued at two […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links   Lace appliqué in progress — each piece has to be individually placed and pinned securely before stitching! As a student in my final year of lingerie school, the past few weeks have mostly comprised of delicately hand-sewing lace appliqué — it’s a technique that features heavily in my final collection, and a technique I consider one of the most exquisitely beautiful in the […]

A few weeks ago, I was in Portland attending a blog conference, when I caught sight of a familiar slip in a store window. The store was Folly, and the slip was one I’d recently seen in a local Seattle boutique. Unable to resist checking out some new lingerie, I walked in and turns out the owner of the boutique was also the same person who’d designed those beautiful slips […]

Items for this review were provided by Lulu West. All opinions are my own. My personal lingerie tastes tend to tilt towards the vintage or classically pretty side of things, so I was intrigued when Lulu West offered to send some samples. It’s not often I find myself reviewing a brand that is previously totally unknown to me, but the extra feminine look and feel of Lulu West’s offerings had instant appeal. […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Lingerie from the 1920s was known for its loose, easy, carefree spirit. I’d even venture to call a lot of it “sporty,” especially considering what came before and after. This post isn’t about going for vintage reproductions of twenties-style lingerie. Rather, to me these pieces invoke the emphasis on lace, effortless silhouettes, straightforward wear, and luxe materials that was so typical of 1920s underpinnings. […]

Inside Fifi Chachnil on Rue St Honoré Mid-January saw me travelling to Paris for the Salon de la Lingerie trade show.  Although I was only there for the weekend, I simply had to make the time to see some of the great Parisian lingerie sights. My last day in the city saw me making a mad dash from shop to shop (suitcase in tow!), trying to find the perfect souvenir. […]
