The Lingerie Addict Team
Name: Cora Harrington
Role: Founder and Editor-in-Chief
Bio: I’m a women’s college graduate and former nonprofit worker, and I’ve been blogging about lingerie since 2008. Though I was raised in Georgia, I currently live in the Pacific Northwest, and when I’m not writing about bras and knickers, I’m drinking green tea and reading science fiction.
Bra Size: 34C
Lingerie Tip: Lingerie shopping can be frustrating (and understandably so), but the good news is that are more options available than ever before. More than likely, someone is making something that is the perfect size, shape, and style for you. Don’t be afraid to research online and try new things. It’s worth it when you find the perfect piece.
Name: Laurie Shapiro
Role: Features Editor
Bio: Former owner/designer of the luxury lingerie label, Toad Lillie. Vintage couture, old Hollywood glamour, and Paris in the 20s make me weak in the knees. When I’m not writing about pretty things, I’m usually sewing and knitting my wardrobe or swooning over decadent costume dramas.
Bra Size: 34E
Lingerie Tip: Invest in a beautiful robe or two. It’s hard not to start the day on the right foot when you’re wearing something pretty to sip your coffee or put on your makeup.
Favorite Lingerie Brands: I.D. Sarrieri, Meng, Carine Gilson
Specialty: Luxury Lingerie
Bio: Independent lingerie designer based in London, UK. Contour Fashion graduate and all-round lingerie obsessive, with a dangerous addiction to French lace and corsetry.
Bra Size: 30D
Lingerie Tip: Make the most out of the seasonal sales – learn some basic sewing skills and how to cross grade bra sizes. Even if your size is out of stock, you can often pick up a bra with the same cross graded cup size and easily alter the underband to fit you.
Favorite Lingerie Brands: Carine Gilson, Chantal Thomass, Sparklewren

Favorite Lingerie Brands: Freya, Love Claudette, Between the Sheets, Stella McCartney, Fraulein Annie, Else
Specialty: Trend & Fashion
Bio: I fell in love with lingerie early in life and studied intimate apparel design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. After a decade of designing, forecasting, shopping and writing about lingerie, I finally decided to launch my own venture by opening an online lingerie boutique: WonderLust Lingerie. When I’m not immersed in the lingerie world, you can find me traveling, enjoying a good book, watching roller derby or searching the web for cute animal pics.
Bra Size: 32C
Lingerie Tip: The right kind of underwear can change your entire outlook for the day. Make sure to choose pieces that will make you feel confident and comfortable!

Specialty: Ethical Lingerie, Independent Manufacturing and Design
Bio: I’m an aesthete and entrepreneur who lives in Brooklyn, NY and runs the dreamy made-in-NYC loungewear line, she and reverie. I’m passionate about the importance of where and under what conditions our clothes are made. In my spare time I enjoy hand embroidery, riding my bicycle, going to concerts, and eating dessert.
Bra Size: 34F
Lingerie Tip: Always shop with quality over quantity in mind; invest in well-made pieces you love, and you won’t have to spend more to replace poorly-made lingerie over time.
