Last year, in response to a message one of my Tumblr followers sent me, I made a list of my 10 favorite lingerie blogs. Since then, a couple of the bloggers on that list have gone on to become quite famous, and, on a somewhat sadder note, a couple of the bloggers have since gone defunct. But it’s hard to stay sad for too long because there are new lingerie […]

Journelle is running a Spring Cleaning Bra Drive to help victims of sex trafficking. For every bra donated, you’re not only helping women in need, you’ll also get a 20% off coupon. Bras can be taken in-person to Journelle boutiques or mailed in. Darlene from Hourglassy talks about the fit vs. risk factor when it comes to lingerie boutiques stocking new sizes. Rather than laziness or carelessness or evil intentions […]

By: Kristina Here on the East Coast we have been experiencing abnormally warm weather for the past few weeks. The flowers are budding, the birds are singing and New Yorkers are already breaking out their flip flops! While I am really hoping this is not a sign of global warming I’m also welcoming these signs of spring with an extra bounce in my step and the reintroduction of bold, unabashed […]

Today’s “Why Do Lingerie Retailers” feature is a short one, but a good one. One of the questions that’s come up a lot within the lingerie community (and the fashion community in general, really) is “Why don’t retailers hire a model in each size to show how the clothing looks on a range of body types?” Sounds pretty reasonable, right? Here’s what Catherine had to say– Put plainly, it’s money. […]

There’s a new video up on The Lingerie Addict YouTube Channel, and in it, I’m sharing a little bit of what I learned about bra fitting from the Eveden Group while in NYC for Lingerie Market. Eveden, which owns the brands Huit, Fantasie, Fauve, Freya, Goddess, and Elomi, teaches a bra fit seminar at Curve every market season. It’s always well-attended, and after hearing great things about the class from […]

The “War on Plus Four” continues with a new study from the University of Portsmouth detailing the issues with the traditional bra fit method. Among other things, the study found that the plus four method was especially inadequate for larger-breasted women, which is what Linda the Bra Lady alluded to in our article on bra fit formulas. (via Busts 4 Justice) Catwalk Queen cited The Lingerie Addict in another article […]

I first saw Fleur of England’s “Dash of Lime” collection as last year’s Curve Lingerie Show, but since it was super new, I couldn’t photograph it yet (and understandably so, since many luxury lines are ripped off almost immediately after the show). I haven’t stopped thinking about it though, and when I saw the impossibly nice Fleur of England ladies during this year’s lingerie market, they told me I could […]

I was going back through my blog archives earlier this week, and I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t made a post about being on Pinterest! Though I’ve only been on the service for a few months now, I love it. It’s a great way of keeping track of what inspires me without things getting lost the way they sometimes do on blog-style formats (like Twitter and Tumblr). If you’re on […]
