The line between innerwear and outerwear is a fluid thing, and more lingerie designers are capitalizing on this sense of freedom to push the envelope. We’ve talked in the past about the power of lingerie in fantasy role playing. Whether worn as a secret under your clothes, or used to slip into a different persona, lingerie is an amazing tool to experiment and feel empowered. We were really excited to […]

  Products for this review were provided by Ruby Ribbon. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  While I wear mostly vintage-style dresses, I’m actually a big fan of shapewear leggings in my down time. They’re great for playing with my dog, walking around the French Quarter and doing yoga or ballet exercise tapes. I’ve been relying mostly on Lysse products for the past year or so, so I was […]

We are fresh off of a week-long celebration of lingerie here in New York City after Lingerie Fashion Week, The Curve Expo show and The Lingerie Collective show culminated in a six-day fete full of champagne, entertainment, and of course, gorgeous lingerie. There’s nothing like an injection of beauty during this otherwise drab time of the year with Valentine’s Day long gone and spring still weeks away. But leave it […]

The two panty styles mentioned were was sent to me by ClubFife. All thoughts and opinions are my own. All photos courtesy of ClubFife. ClubFife is a loungewear brand whose tagline describes its products as “sexy + comfy.” I recently had the opportunity to test out two of the panty styles. I’d say the brand achieved the “sexy + comfy” goal for those who love that “I just rolled out […]

Rhonda Shear is a brand with which I am familiar through Dollhouse Bettie, where I have both worked and shopped.  However, I’ve never actually purchased, nor tried on, any of their products.  When they offered The Lingerie Addict a review opportunity, I was immediately interested.  Two samples were sent to me, free of charge; all opinions presented below are my own. When I first […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I know.  Stockings INSIDE of stockings?  Your head may have just exploded.  But piece it back together and consider how happy any lingerie addict would be to wake up on Christmas day and instead of finding in her Christmas stocking a deck of cards, chap stick, Hershey’s bar or lump of coal, she pulls out a gorgeous pair of stockings! First, a little about […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I openly admit that I’m a bit late to this trend, but after buying my very first pair of mesh leggings a few weeks ago from American Apparel, I’m hooked.  Lace and mesh leggings are the perfect Spring fashion staple. Not only do they go with absolutely everything, they help transition your wardrobe from Winter to Summer, especially if it’s still a little chilly […]

As I’ve mentioned in other indie spotlights, I love it when my readers tell me about a new designer I haven’t heard of before. Today’s feature, on new indie legwear designer SockBox, is exactly the sort of thing I want to do more of on The Lingerie Addict in 2011. One of the things I like about SockBox is the playfulness and creativity behind the line. Legwear’s a hard niche […]
