As for “people say my work is somewhat more sensible and sweet”- I can only speak for myself, and the drawings seem to depict a realistic female body and show women having fun coming from a confident, powerful position.

Comment on Alexandrea Anissa 2015 by Hayley https://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2015/07/alexandrea-anissa-2015.html#comment-1727359 Sun, 02 Aug 2015 16:03:48 +0000 https://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=45104#comment-1727359 Oh my god. I love it, everything. Not just the badass diversity of the lookbook, but the actual pieces themselves. I especially like the floral set in the 3rd picture, which is unusual for me because I usually gravitate towards the more lacy, delicate-looking things.

I especially like this sentence: “Wearing lingerie is a game you play with yourself.”

Comment on Shapewear 101: A Guide to Shapewear (and Other Lingerie Solutions.) by Martine https://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2013/09/a-guide-to-shapewear-and-other-sneaky-solutions.html#comment-1726346 Sat, 01 Aug 2015 11:35:50 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=16395#comment-1726346 Hi

Wondered whether you could advise – I am looking for a pair of slimming shorts which ‘separate the behind’ – I have tried many types but all tend to ‘lump’ the cheeks together, which is not on when wearing jeans or shapely trousers.
Let me know if you have any advice.

Comment on The 10 Best Bra Brands for Full Bust & Plus Sized Women by Beth https://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2011/06/10-best-brands-for-full-cup-plus-size.html#comment-1725445 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:40:32 +0000 http://64.207.157.210/2011/06/the-top-10-bra-brands-for-full-bust-plus-size-women.html#comment-1725445 I found this site while researching ‘bras for full breasts’. While I’m definitely not a lingerie addict, I appreciate all this info. I finally realized, after many years, that I was trying to fit in the wrong bra size. I tolerated the uncomfortableness. But when I started menopause about 5 years ago, and especially this last year when my full breasts became even fuller ‘cuz they were swelling up, I promised myself I would put in the time and effort to find a bra that feels RIGHT. I found a pretty good Wacoal bra at Macy’s. However my breasts are still so HEAVY-feeling, it’s causing me to scrunch up my shoulders, creating further tension. (It’s tough being a female!). Anyway thanks for the website.

Have a really solid colection of books, both photography and illustrations. So I am allways interested in artists I have not heard of. And so far I am loving it. The classic flair and the vibrant colours are fantastic!
I was also just mentioning to a friend how much I would love a collection of male pin-ups. So many talented male burlesque dancers with great looks and costumes. So i am very intrigued by the mention of a male pin-up.

Comment on Lingerie Review: Built Up Chemise and Lace Short by Tia Lyn by Erica of A Sophisticated Pair https://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2015/07/review-built-up-chemise-and-lace-short-by-tia-lyn.html#comment-1725122 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 02:04:37 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=44730#comment-1725122 Holly, this looks amazing on you! I love the color on your skin tone, and I am so excited to see the final review. <3 I have this same chemise and really love the look and feel. Some bra-sized lingerie pieces give better support, but I don't feel like it is something I could really sleep or lounge in comfortable. With Tia Lyn, I feel like it's a piece that feels sexy and sophisticated but exceptionally comfortable too.

P.S. To Wendy and anyone else curious, we can order Tia Lyn via email and do offer our special order discount with free shipping. We haven't placed a large order yet because we're still getting more into lingerie, and some of our customers are used to "adult store" prices. I have been trying to emphasize that this is truly a quality piece with luxurious fabrics that are totally worth the price, and for the people who take the plunge, they always come back for more. It's just a process! :)

Comment on Lingerie Business: Why I’m Giving Up On Wholesale And Fashion Seasons by Chris https://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2015/07/lingerie-business-why-im-giving-up-on-wholesale-and-fashion-seasons.html#comment-1723555 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:36:09 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=44648#comment-1723555 Karolina make plenty of sense in her article. She is a passionate designer, and is clearly not intent on building a huge business. Anyone who does or has knows that as soon as the business grows, the very last thing they spend their time on is what the business stated out as, they have to become accountant, human resources, financier etc. etc. then the personal touch vanishes and it is hard to keep quality standards up. As a different example, does anyone know any multi branch restaurant chain that compares to a good independent one ?
Well done Karolina, you are staying true to your vision, Chris

Comment on Polish Bra Reviews, Part One: Ewa Michalak by Katie https://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2015/04/polish-bra-reviews-part-one-ewa-michalak.html#comment-1723452 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:41:06 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=40455#comment-1723452 I can’t help but think part of the issue you take with the Ewa bra, has to do with how long you are leaving the straps. I’ve been wearing Ewa for just over 5 years now and its been a life saver. I never liked having armpit boobs that stuck off the sides of my frame, which the narrow wire solves. I never liked how low my boobs sat in other bras either, like in the way of my arms. If you really want the support that Ewa offers, check out their larger cupped models (aka the first one in your post) and check out where her boobs sit on her chest. Shorten the straps, and you’ll get that look and more support. I think a lot of people who wind up disliking Ewa or other polish styles, don’t understand that its not meant to sit in the same place as say Freya or Panache or Curvy Kate, which all extend the tissue around the side, which all give a ton of separation in the gore, which all somewhat flatten/and spread the tissue out. Ewa gathers it all up and lets it sit higher on your chest which solved a lot of my back issues.
