Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Lily Blossom. This article contains imagery which may be NSFW. TLA has talked about Lily Blossom a few times in 2014 (see some of our previous lingerie picks here and here). This brand new luxury lingerie store, based out of Spain, is providing a unique and sensual option for the most discerning lingerie addicts. I fully admit, from the very beginning, I’ve been impressed […]

With the events of the Oxford Conference of Corsetry this past weekend, I’ve had corsets on my mind a little more than usual. And I have a hard time thinking about corsets without also thinking of Velda Lauder. For those who are unfamiliar with her name, Velda was a Master Corsetiere who passed away suddenly in March 2013. She was at the peak of her professional career, and her corsets […]

I’m probably going to sound like a total fangirl right now, but I don’t care because Lucy of Lucy’s Corsetry is amazing. She is the online authority for corsetry and has put together the best, most regularly updated resource I know of when it comes to buying, wearing, and discussing corsets. My interest in corsets is very much casual. I think they’re beautiful. I enjoy wearing them on occasion. I […]

Here at TLA, we love vintage lingerie. Vintage-inspired, authentic vintage, vintage catalogs… taking a past look at women’s undergarments is interesting not only from a fashion perspective, but also from a social or cultural one. You can tell a lot about people and the times they lived in based on what they wore, and lingerie is no different. While there aren’t as many vintage lingerie videos as there are for, […]

The final videos from this year’s Lingerie Market are here! This series is all about CURVExpo’s Lingerie Fashion Night ‘In’ Event. A bit of an unwieldy name (I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say the entire mouthfull), but an awesome night nonetheless. I think it’s a great idea that a tradeshow like Curve is offering a fashion show to not only promote networking and camaderie among brands and industry […]

If you’re wanting to look at pretty lingerie (and since you’re here, I’m guessing you do), I’m getting videos from this last market season on The Lingerie Addict YouTube in the next few days or so. The first round of videos is from this season’s Lingerie Fashion Week and include the Layneau Collection presentation and the Affinitas and Parfait by Affinitas runway shows. I feel like I should apologize in […]

Lindsey and I are featuring another bra set we both love in this month’s “In the Lingerie Boutique” video. I’d seen Huit’s ‘Melisande’ set in that bright orange/tangerine color most everywhere, but I didn’t know it also came in this divine, peachy, blush tone. The floral print lace, cut-and-sewn style, and luxe French details (like that keyhole gore and flat bow) make this one of my favorite sets of the […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. A brand new 1 minute bra review is live on the TLA YouTube Channel, and today I’m talking about Natori’s “Fatale” bra in the Truffle/Lavender colorway. I own this bra in a size 34C. It was sent to me free of charge for review purposes, but all opinions are my own. Have you tried this particular Natori bra yet? What did you think of […]

Happy Monday, everyone! So far, 2013’s been all about new experiences for me, and the blog is no different. One of the things I really wanted to do more of this year is video. I always feel kind of awkward and goofy in videos, but I also realize a lot of people would rather watch something than read something, and so I want to make sure there’s info out there […]

Last week, I posted about my trip to the Lace Embrace Antique Corset Exhibition and Historical Fashion Show. Just before this year’s fashion show, Melanie Talkington, the founder of Lace Embrace, also did an antique lingerie dressing sequence typical of a woman during the Edwardian period. I filmed the entire thing on my iPhone, and now the video is up on YouTube to watch. It’s incredibly fascinating, and I hope […]
