The lingerie world tends to be pretty risk averse. With many boutiques opting for safe, proven sellers, many brands are subsequently afraid to push the envelope. Each year at market Cora looks for designs that are bold and fearless, yet it is rare to be treated to work that truly innovates. Well, leave it to a small Etsy seller out of Budapest, Hungary, to shake things up. FRKS Lingerie is […]

I realized recently that it’s been more than a year since I started writing a queer lingerie column at The Lingerie Addict. When I started, I had a strong love of lingerie, especially the discount kind. But beyond that, I had very little idea how I was going to make this work.
