Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I have a lot of love for Playful Promises. Their campaigns are wonderfully cheeky and far as I’m concerned, they’re one of the few independent lingerie brands that are successfully and consistently producing fashion forward and high-quality pieces, at a price point that’s low enough for the occasional guilt free lingerie treat. It’s a […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Nightprowl London is a British luxury boudoir brand, specialising in sensual pieces with exquisite textiles: French laces, Austrian embroideries, devoré velvet prints and silk satin. The colour scheme is firmly monochromatic; with the exception of a single ivory bridal range, all of Nightprowl London’s designs are in black. Given how effortlessly sexy and classic […]

When I first started my lingerie brand ‘Karolina Laskowska’ in the Summer of 2012, I was pretty optimistic about the future. The brand had begun with wholesale requests and my own online shop was doing far better than I’d expected. Everything was new and very little seemed more exciting than the prospect of finding more stockists and joining the lingerie world as a proper lingerie brand. Fast forward three years […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. KS Paris (short for Kimy’s Sweeties) is a relatively young French brand inspired by elements of Japanese culture, specialising in deliciously frivolous boudoir lingerie with lashings of Chantilly lace and flirty detailing. Their lacy underthings made an appearance in TLA’s SS14 trend report from the Mode City trade show. They’re decadent in all the […]

Disclosure: This lingerie was purchased by The Lingerie Addict for the purpose of review. I’m fully prepared to put my hands up and admit that I’m a bit of a lingerie snob. Generally speaking, only the luxury side of the industry ever attracts my attention. It’s the exquisite fabrics and attention to detail that I love about lingerie, and they’re features that tend to be entirely lacking in the more […]

I’ve noticed a pretty disturbing trend in the lingerie world right now: that of entitlement. There’s an awful lot of people out there who really seem to believe they unquestionably deserve luxury lingerie. Paying for it seems to be another matter entirely, whether that means paying what the individual believes to be a ‘fair’ price or getting the piece for free. Clickbait headline aside, I genuinely believe that the sense […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links Whilst I’m sure a lot of us identify as lingerie addicts, my problem goes a little deeper and hits the bank balance even harder: I’m a luxury lingerie addict. I’ve found that the further I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole of the lingerie world, the more discriminating and picky I’ve become about the pieces I choose to add to my wardrobe. Luxury lingerie isn’t […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie free of charge by Chantelle. All opinions are my own. Chantelle is one of those lingerie brands that I’ve seen countless times in department stores, but never actually made a conscious effort to discover for myself. Their bras have always seemed pretty to me, but not exciting enough to pique my interest — my main associations with them are of delicate lace and embroidered […]

Note: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own Chantal Thomass is one of my all time favourite lingerie designers. Several of her sets feature heavily in my everyday lingerie wardrobe and her lookbooks regularly give me heart palpitations. Imagine my reaction when I discovered that she’d turned her hand to my most adored lingerie era, the 1920s, and even recreated […]

Disclosure: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links. I’m the first to admit that I’m a little desensitized to lingerie – I spend so much time around it that it takes something seriously special to get me excited. Brands like Agent Provocateur don’t usually capture my imagination (with the exception of their Soiree collection, as […]
