• Summer Trend Alert: Daisy Lingerie

    It’s finally summer! After a seemingly-endless winter (at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere), summer has definitely arrived in full effect. Time to put away my jeans, slip on my ballet flats, slather on the sunscreen, and wear nothing but floaty sundresses for the next 3 months or so. Summer, of course, is always the time for floral lingerie, but this year the seasonal trend gets a […]

  • Lingerie as Outerwear for Pride

    A time of celebration, resistance, and community, Pride can also be an incredibly affirming experience for folks whose bodies, genders, and styles aren’t represented in the mainstream. What better time to show off some of the fun, glittery, and glamorous lingerie in your wardrobe? Even better if you can support queer-owned businesses while you do it! I’ve included a number of queer-owned and explicitly queer-friendly lingerie companies here. For me, […]

  • Fact Check: Does ThirdLove Offer More Bra Sizes Than Any Other Lingerie Brand?

    ThirdLove released 24 new bra sizes this week, and the fashion world is all aflutter with breathless headlines praising the startup for making more bra sizes than any other lingerie brand. ThirdLove’s very own co-founder, David Spector, even made this dubious claim on Twitter. The only (obvious) problem? It’s completely and totally false (I would say a lie, but I’m trying to be more tactful in 2018). While ThirdLove’s 70 […]

  • Allure, Bloomberg & Vogue UK: Recent Press Mentions for The Lingerie Addict

    As you’ve likely noticed, content has been a lot more infrequent lately on The Lingerie Addict. We’ve gone from a high of posting twice a day a few years ago, to posting, at most, 3 times per week. But that doesn’t mean I’ve been idle. While preparing for my book launch this August is taking up most of my time (turns out writing a book is just the start), TLA […]

  • Ellesmere Lingerie Julep Collection Spring/Summer 2018

    A feature on Ellesmere Lingerie is long overdue. I’ve admired their collections for several seasons now, but hadn’t been able to find room in the editorial calendar for an article. Well no more, because you really need to see this Canadian label. Independent lingerie brands are experiencing a kind of second renaissance, moving beyond the early days of Etsy (a platform which helped to revolutionize the lingerie industry), and finding […]

  • Lingerie of the Week: Simon Preen Cenobite Bodysuit

    I can’t take credit for today’s find. The only reason I know about Simon Preen is because one of my favorite lingerie bloggers, Morning Madonna, tweeted about them, and you all know how I feel about a good catsuit. I’ve been in my feelings lately about not having been to a Comic-Con in awhile. When I lived in Georgia, I went to Dragon*Con pretty regularly. Even after moving to Seattle, […]

  • Androgynous Swimsuits for All Summer Styles and Bodies!

    For gender non-conforming folks, going to the beach can be fraught with uncertainty. There are few places where so much of our bodies are visible and few garments so publicly gendered as swimwear. Luckily, more and more companies are coming out with options for a range of bodies beyond your typical bikini or board short. There are many androgynous options out there, no matter your style! Here are my summer […]

  • Bra Sister Sizing: Why It Isn’t a Bad Thing

    You may have heard lingerie fans criticizing the idea of “sister sizing” in bras as a general bad practice. That wearing a sister size is “wrong,” won’t be a good fit, and is just a way for brands to sell you more product. However, sister sizing isn’t a negative concept. At its core, it’s a neutral fact describing how bra sizes work. So what is a sister size? How do […]

For every Elle Macpherson (now Heidi Klum Intimates), there’s a Britney Spears. For every Dita Von Teese, there’s a Halle Berry. Even fashion luminaries like Naomi Campbell haven’t been able to sustain their own lingerie brands, and that’s for one simple reason: making lingerie […]
  • Lingerie’s Latest Trend for Summer? Denim!

    Is there any fabric that better combines comfort and chicness than denim? Once associated with hard-wearing workwear for laborers like miners, farmers, and lumberjacks, denim is now a fashion staple for everyone, no matter their occupation. However, one place we don’t usually think of denim being used is in intimate apparel. After all, lingerie is practically defined by soft, whimsical fabrics…the exact opposite of denim’s rough cotton heaviness. So perhaps […]
