Brooklyn-based lingerie line Thistle and Spire was founded in 2015. I remember adoring their thistle-embroidered bralette the first time I saw them at Curve. The embellishment was obviously branded, but beautiful enough to stand alone. Impressive for a new line. The indie label quickly became an easily-recognized name among younger lingerie wearers, thanks to their well-priced dynamic designs, carefully-engineered embroideries, and lots of social media marketing.

Disclaimer: These items were purchased by The Lingerie Addict for review. All opinions are my own. During the more temperate months, I live in silk nightgowns.

For years, I’ve been fixated on making sure TLA isn’t about me, Cora Harrington. While I don’t see that changing (my life isn’t interesting enough on its own to sustain a blog), I finally feel comfortable showing more of myself here. Some of you may remember it took me years to even share my real name, so it’s been quite a long journey towards this modest goal.
