The One Thing You Can Give Me for My Birthday…

Today’s July 1st and that means it’s my birthday. At the moment, I’m in the middle of some last minute packing before The Boyfriend and I fly to St. Louis to spend 4th of July weekend with his family, but before I go, I just wanted to ask if you’d do something for me for my birthday.

If you could share one way this blog has changed your life, that would be the best birthday gift ever. It could be that you learned something about lingerie, it could be that you learned something about yourself, it could be that you just like looking at pretty pictures. ;)

But whatever it is, it would completely make my day to hear it from you.

Have a safe and happy weekend, and I’ll see you again soon.

    Dear Treacle-
    Happy B-Day To You!

    I love your blog. And just so you know, your love and appreciation for lingerie are both contagious and inspiring!!!

    I enjoy all that you do here, and having a "lingerie therapy session" with you last year was great fun as well as very informative. And I thought I knew it all… ha!

    Would still be honored to write here on occasion regardless of the money. After all, loves is what counts the most!

    Best to you,

    I know I'm a little late, but happy, happy birthday! I hope you are having a fabulous safe and happy holiday with your boyfriend and his family :)

    This blog has changed my life by not only teaching me about lingerie when I had less then zero knowledge, but most importantly, it's made me feel more comfortable about my sexuality and feminine self.

    And for that, I am thankful :)

    This blog has demystified lingerie for me and made me realize that I really can wear "that stuff" — and add a little fashion to my functional undergarments!

    Happy birthday!

    Happy,happy birthday Treacle! Your blog posts are beautifully written and so informative. You have given me a unique perspective on the beauty underneath and you've made lingerie inspiring. Have an amazing birthday and a safe and happy holiday.

    Happy belated birthday!

    This blog has helped me realize that I can buy lingerie for *me* and I can buy lingerie that is both functional and pretty. That has also given me more self confidence and I am grateful for that.

    Happy birthday gorgeous :)

    Well I only discovered your blog a few days ago, but I love it to pieces!!

    I loved finding someone who is as lingerie-obsessed as me; the discovery of your blog was a highlight of my week, at least <3 xo

    This blog was my inspiration to actually, truly start looking at the way lingerie made me feel. I look at that now, and my views are evolving from my starting point which was: these are the things I have to wear because I need support instead of free-boobing it.

    Now, I'm just in love with being a vixen in spirit- and soon physically as I collect pieces along the way!

    Happy Birthday!

    The one way the Lingerie Addict blog has changed my life is convince me to a) measure myself to get the proper size bra so that it fits and b) save my money so that I can buy myself a real corset and c) wear lingerie and stockings (especially stockings!) more often! The Lingerie Addict blog really changed the way I viewed lingerie in general for the better! Now, my boyfriend and I shop for lingerie for me on special occasions together because while I love it, it's really a present for both of us. ;)

    Thank you for continuing this blog! :D

    Happy Birthday!!!. Your addiction to and love for knickers, vintage, lingerie, corsetry, pinup modeling, burlesque and everything having to do with lingerie has been a blessing, reassuring, and fascinating for me. The knowledge and enthusiasm you write with and the lovely photos and videos you post about lingerie are riveting.

    I had thought my own obsession with full brief retro-style knickers was possibly over the top, and had my doubts as to whether I would find acceptance for my male modeling of briefs. Enter yourself, Treacle! I can't begin to tell you haow much I appreciate the sweet comment you made back around March 15th or 16th of 2010 ("What gorgeous panties") at a time when I had very few commenters and followers. Thank you!. I really love your blog and videos. Happy Birthday again.

    Happy birthday Treacle!

    What I have loved most about reading your blog is knowing that there are others who share such a love for underthings as I do, especially stockings. It makes such a difference to be able to share the obsession.

    I love your blog! It's very informative, and I've learned a lot from it. You should really consider writing a book on the subject. I know I'd buy it!

  12. Burlesque Princess says:

    Happy Birthday to you (singing in my head) Hope you have an awesome day!

    Really love your blog… guess its your present to us, hope you get all you desire :)

    Happy birthday!
    I've never commented here before, but per this request I will. This blog made me absolutely adore tights. I hadn't worn any in years and all memories of them were associated with dressing up to go to Sunday School when I was still in my single digits. Seeing the beautiful photos on here I thought I'd give tights a chance and discovered that they turned my (normally quite nice) legs into gorgeous works of art. From tights I ventured into stockings and garters and well…I'm sure it's small to some people, but it means a lot to have one definite part of myself that everyday I can look at and think, "Damn, baby – looking fine."
    Thank you for that.

    Treacle, I rarely feel the need to comment on your posts. Your readers are so enthusiastic and opinionated and brilliant; they rarely leave any unexplored angles.
    But despite my minimal input I can honestly say that reading your blog over the last two years has been wonderful.
    I can't quite explain why or how, but in the last two years I have felt for the first time comfortable in my own skin. Incredibly, I have become proud of my body, Delighted with my small bust and my ample bottom.
    Thank you.
    I wish you a magic birthday.

    reading your blog has cemented the idea that lingerie and other pretty things can be extensions of how one feels about oneself and isn't confined to a certain size,type, or style. I can wear something nice and it doesn't have to even be for anyone else; I am my own best reason!

  16. Petra Bellejambes says:

    This blog has changed my life by showing more than any other place I have found that a love of lingerie is something that unites people, regardless of so many of things that needlessly divide … age, wealth, size, shade, shape and indeed, gender.

    Happy birthday!

    Much love.

    Happy birthday to you! Hope you have a beautiful weekend.

    So far as the blog…for one thing, the posts about choosing a corset are wonderful. Especially since I presently live in a part of the country where good lingerie is impossible to find at a brick and mortar, the guidelines for choosing will prove to be invaluable.
