    This Is Not The End: Where to Find The Lingerie Addict in the Future
    I am truly overcome at all the supportive comments, messages, and emails I've received since making the incredibly difficult decision to sunset The Lingerie Addict in its current form as primarily a lingerie blog. There's always this sense of "talking into the void" when one is doing work online. You're never really quite sure if people are seeing what you're doing. Just knowing how so many of you saw The […]

    What The Lingerie Addict Means To Me
    It is not hyperbole to say The Lingerie Addict changed my life. My first encounter with the website was accidental. As a teenager who practically lived on Tumblr, I stumbled across a series of stunning photographs that linked to an article about studying lingerie design. That moment of discovery was like falling down a rabbit hole. Lingerie was not this distant, inaccessible thing I could just stare at longingly from […]

    How The Lingerie Addict Changed My Life
    Eight years ago, I worked as a waitress at a soda fountain to support my indie loungewear line, she and reverie. All of our products were manufactured in NYC’s garment district, and ethical manufacturing was (and still is) so important to me. So when Cora put out a call for columnists at The Lingerie Addict, I applied. I had never written professionally before, but it always came easily to me. […]

    Fan Lacing: A Love Letter
    One of my favorite visual corsetry effects is fan-lacing. While it looks beautiful, with its perfect symmetry and matched columns of wraparound, criss-crossed lacing, it also has a very practical purpose. As fancy and complicated as it appears, fan lacing during its heyday was revolutionary for simplifying the process of getting dressed! A Very Short Explanation of Fan Lacing Many people are familiar with the basics of a corset, and […]

    Minimizer Bra Review: Vanity Fair Beauty Back Full Figure Underwire Minimizer
    I saw a minimizer bra for the first time in junior high. I was trying on bras at my local department store, and almost every bra in my size was labeled as a minimizer. When I asked my mom about it, she said “It just means your nipples don’t show through." But that didn’t really make sense to me. Don’t B cups have nipples, too? I later learned that minimizer […]

    To my memory, Buttress & Snatch was one of the first lingerie brands crafting fantastical, fairy tale-inspired luxury lingerie. I remember swooning over their Queen of the Clover on Tumblr, imagining a world where swathes of silk and tiny flowers blossomed out of every piece of lingerie I owned. Today, the brand continues to make some of the most romantic sets out there. Airy arm swags, vintage millinery flowers, scattered […]

    Lingerie Design Challenges: Ready-To-Wear vs. Bespoke
    Before getting into the nitty gritty of what the differences are between designing for ‘ready-to-wear’ and ‘bespoke’ lingerie, it’s important to first nail down what these phrases actually mean. In a world dominated by fast fashion and half-truth marketing, a lot of the technical terminology around clothing has had its meaning diluted and distorted. This is particularly true of the language around luxury fashion, which is often co-opted by fast […]

A once-popular design detail from the first half of the 20th century, insertion lace has gradually faded out of favor, primarily due to manufacturing costs. While indie brands like Evgenia Lingerie have long been known for their use of this technique, I'm glad to another name to that very short list. The […]
