Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. It’s the first day back after a long weekend, and you’re probably in the middle of doing a bunch of stuff, so let’s get the important details out of the way first. Oh La La Cheri’s Romantic Fantasy Eyelash Lace Romper is fun, flirty, doesn’t take itself too seriously, is available up to a 4X, and costs under $42. I first saw this coquettish […]

It’s time for The Lingerie Addict’s brief annual foray into the world of men’s underwear. While TLA is a fashion blog more or less written with women in mind, when I see a great pair of knickers for dudes, that little detail won’t stop me from writing about them here. In a word (or three actually), I love Menagerie. Though lace was historically a part of men and women’s dress […]

We’re barely into 2016, and I’ve already been made breathless twice. While Karolina is TLA’s resident lace expert, I feel even the novice lingerie connoisseur could surely understand the sensual appeal of corded ivory French lace. Freolic London’s ‘Grace’ dress is an arresting conceptual piece, beautifully executed. There’s something very deliberately excessive about this dress in a way that feels reminiscent, to me, of the 80’s (although with no shoulder […]

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 […]

Last month, industry professionals convened in New York for the lingerie market, centered around the biannual Curve trade show.  A host of indie and big-name brands displayed their fall collections for buyers and press alike over a whirlwind three days. I always look forward to the show. It’s a chance to catch up with the designers I’ve known for years and to see how they have evolved their collections yet […]

It’s not going to shock anyone when I say this, but I have a pretty extensive lingerie collection. While some of my purchases do wind up on TLA as lingerie reviews (speaking of which, I plan to get back to doing those soon), the vast majority of what I buy never makes it onto the blog. Rather, I just add it to my general lingerie body of knowledge. That way, […]

It’s hard to describe just how much I love lace right now. I’ve mentioned a few times around here that there’s this whole, rich world of textiles which has recently opened up to me (primarily through obsessively talking with other lingerie people about fabric), and, quite suddenly, I appreciate lace and embroidery and silk and tulle more than I ever imagined possible. For lace especially, there’s something bewitching about all […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. This is almost certainly the last “Sale Lingerie of the Week” feature until 2015, and so, in commemoration (and celebration!) of 2014, I wanted to end on a somewhat extravagant note. I love featuring luxury lingerie in the weekly sales spotlight. Some of that’s a matter of personal taste (I cannot lie; I love silk and lace), but some of that’s also because […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. One of the things most people don’t realize about the world of lingerie is that, like the rest of fashion, intimate apparel runs in seasons (in fact, I’m already receiving my first A/W 2015 lookbooks right now). But unlike the rest of fashion, lingerie never truly goes out of style. If you’re wearing last years colors or prints… who cares? And out of […]

Editor’s Note: As you’ve no doubt noticed, this year’s trend report is exceptionally late. There are reasons for that, both personal and professional, but I feel it’s very probable that no one wants to hear about the varied and assorted details of my life.  So while I do want to acknowledge that this year’s post is very tardy (lingerie market happened back in August), I also feel it’d be best […]
