Soft and dreamy, this collection has a sweetness that is endearing because it’s not trying so hard. There are no Lolitas or pampered princesses here. Rather, there’s an easy innocence and girlish charm that transcends the brand’s usual “twee” aesthetic. […]

Corsets Are Not Consent http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/corsets-consent.html http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/corsets-consent.html#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 04:01:20 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=30717 Corsets are inherently an attention-getting garment. First, there’s their rarity: you just don’t see a woman (or man) in a corset very often, especially not “real” corsets. They’re unusual, uncommon. Not only are they uncommon, but they create an instant and noticeable change to the wearer’s body, unlike many outlandish or eye-catching styles which may […]

As I’ve written about several times now on TLA, finding nude lingerie to match your skintone can be a special challenge if you’re a woman of color. The default nude in the lingerie industry is best described as beige, leaving out a rather significant portion of the world’s […]

Else Lingerie S/S 2015 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/else-lingerie-ss-2015.html http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/else-lingerie-ss-2015.html#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:00:49 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=30673 While I love fashion-forward lingerie as much as the next lingerie addict, there’s something to be said for lingerie that is classically beautiful. Yes, it’s fun to fantasize about stepping outside of our comfort level and trying edgier pieces, but at the end of the day many of us just want to feel effortlessly pretty […]

Ebay Lingerie Roundup: Freak Show http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/ebay-lingerie-roundup-freak-show.html http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/ebay-lingerie-roundup-freak-show.html#comments Sun, 19 Oct 2014 04:11:21 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=30404 Rather than evoking the carnival or circus, what this week’s roundup speaks to most is the collector (sometimes dormant, sometimes extremely over-active) inside most lingerie lovers. How many of us have that drawer, or shelf, or trunk (or dresser, spare room, etc.) filled with vintage and ill-fitting pieces that are too interesting and beautiful to […]

Her newest collection, Bend, is beachy, breezy, and thoroughly California-cool. With the dreary, grey months just around the corner, these pieces will add a welcome bit of sunshine and playfulness.

A Corset Family Tree, Abridged http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/corset-family-tree.html http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/corset-family-tree.html#comments Fri, 17 Oct 2014 04:01:24 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=30558 Corsets have an amazing breadth of variety, though I often simplify it for neophytes to the two basic types, overbust and underbust, at least as a starting point. When corset shopping, the range of options and, importantly, the nomenclature around them can be quite daunting.  The following is a simplified and streamlined guide to corset […]

I know, I know…I just featured Panache’s Floris Balconette Bra a couple of weeks ago, so it may seem a little soon to have a Panache bra for our Lingerie of the Week post again. But I’m really liking their colors for this season, and winter version of […]
