On Vacation!

Hi everyone! I just wanted you to know this is the last post you’ll see from me for about a week. As the title suggests, I’m taking a Memorial Day vacation to visit friends and family back in Georgia (where I’m from). Best of all, The Boyfriend’s coming with me for the very first time! I’m really excited about introducing him to some of the most important people in my […]

Today, I started what may be a new lingerie addict tradition…expert chats on the Facebook page. Corsets are one of those items that people always have lots of questions about, so I invited Alexis Black of Electra Designs Corsetry to spend an hour on my page answering questions about corsets. I was a little scared because I was worried no one would show, but you all completely blew me away […]

I am a huge fan of the pin-up look, and Kiss Me Deadly manages to take vintage silhouettes and update them in a very modern way. The Spring/Summer 2011 range features a brand new bridal […]

I’ve gotten spoiled during my stints in lingerie retailing and no packaged pair of panties from Target will cut it for me! Although I’ve cut down my lingerie hoarding as of late, as a newly engaged lady I’ve given […]

I’m not sure if you’ve heard of Instagram yet, but it’s my new favorite toy. Not only does it allow me to easily share photos from my iPhone to Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook…it also lets me apply different effects and filters, so my photos have a unique and interesting look. Though I’ve mostly use Instagram to post photos from my daily life (you can find me under ‘thelingerieaddict’), there are […]

A lot of news went down in the lingerie industry this week. Here are a few of the highlights — KnickersBlog goes on hiatus [Editor’s Note: As of December 2014, this site appears to be defunct]. KnickersBlog was one of the very first lingerie blogs I discovered all those years ago, and they were also one of my inspirations for starting my own blog. While I’m sad to see them leave […]

Super exciting news today, fellow Addicts. On this day, exactly 1 year ago, I created The Lingerie Addict Facebook page…a hub for fans of the blog to interact with me (and each other!) in a more social setting. 365 days and 6100 fans later, I’m so glad I did. The page has become the place to find lots of exclusive content that never appears on the blog…such as this album […]

Set just before the devastation and deprivation of World War II, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is not only a entertaining romantic comedy, it’s also an intriguing look at 1930’s era fashion. Unlike the 1920’s, which emphasized a flat, boyish shilouette, the 1930’s welcomed a return to feminine curves. Corset girdles were all the rage, nylon stockings made their debut, and lingerie marketing […]

“85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra.” I first heard that statistic 5 years ago, shortly after Oprah Winfrey dedicated an entire hour-long show to lingerie. One would think that number might have changed since then, but according to Debenham’s latest press release, 85% of the women they surveyed are still wearing the wrong size bra. Call me cynical, but I have a hard time believing that. In […]

This month’s Designer Interview is with Israeli-based Liya Amar of La Lilouche (who was also the sponsor of my most recent Facebook giveaway!). Liya’s graceful, sophisticated aesthetic is generating a lot of buzz in the lingerie world and I’m super excited to share some of her behind the scenes insights with Lingerie Addict readers. In our interview, Liya talks about the meaning behind her lingerie label’s name,  the hardest part […]
