7 Lingerie Blog Highlights from 2017

7 Lingerie Blog Highlights from 2017

  1. I wrote a book! This is the big one. I started talking with my publisher, Ten Speed Press (an imprint of Penguin/Random House), in 2016, was able to make the official announcement in 2017, and pretty much spent all of last year writing. This book is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and it was worth every single moment. Not only do I have a book I am incredibly proud to show you, I also learned so much from the experience. This book is everything I wanted it to be and then some, and I think you’ll love it too.
  2. I modeled for a lingerie brand for the first time! Another major moment. I’ve run a lingerie blog for almost 10 years, and no brand has ever asked me to model for them before now. I honestly thought it was something that was just never going to happen. Well, earlier this year, when I still lived near LA, Playful Promises invited me to be the face of their Bettie Page Collection, and I eagerly accepted. There’s something so awesome about partnering with a brand you believe in that also believes in you. In a year full of memorable experiences, this one absolutely stands out.
  3. I produced my first editorial shoot! Talk about a dream come true! For years now, I’ve wanted to put together TLA’s very own magazine-style editorial, and this year it all came together. It was time-intensive. It was scary. And I had to learn a lot of new things in a pretty narrow window of time. But I’ve been so inspired and so thrilled by the feedback we’ve received, that I’m counting down the days until our next editorial!
  4. I started a private Lingerie Addicts Facebook Group! Speaking of dreams, the new Lingerie Addicts Facebook Group took off in ways I couldn’t even imagine. This is literally my new favorite place on the internet. To have so many wonderful women and femmes together, united by our common interest in lingerie, ready to share our knowledge and discuss what we love and build each other up…it’s beautiful. Just thinking about it makes me emotional. The Lingerie Addicts Group is the kind of haven I’ve always wanted to have. If you’re eligible and haven’t joined us yet, please stop by.
  5. I started a Lingerie Addict Patreon! Another 2017 goal, The Lingerie Addict Patreon is part of a long-term plan towards making TLA more independent by diversifying our revenue streams. In exchange for their patronage, Patrons receive private rewards ranging from exclusive articles to handwritten thank you notes to special Patreon-only edits from our editorial shoots. If you believe in TLA and our mission, please consider supporting the Patreon. Click here to become a patron for as little as $1/month.
  6. I moved to Manhattan! Moving to New York was a lifelong dream of mine that I thought was never going to happen. It’s funny because I’d just gotten okay with the fact that living in New York was impossible…and then we moved! I’m already feeling so motivated and inspired and rejuvenated by just being here, and I know that being in the center of the lingerie industry can only make TLA better. It feels like perfect timing.
  7. I was featured in Forbes (and quoted on Bloomberg, Allure, Mic, and Racked)! This year was an amazing year for mentions from major media outlets. It’s such an honor to have these publications ask for my thoughts on the lingerie industry, and I see these opportunities as a way to not only share my perspective on intimates but hopefully break up some of the misconceptions and myths around lingerie. Here’s hoping there are more opportunities like this in 2018!

I Wrote a Book! Announcing In Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Wear, and Love Lingerie

In Intimate Detail pulls back the curtain, sharing the kind of insider knowledge many experts take for granted. It’s an honest, judgment-free guide you can turn to again and again – not just this year or next, but 5 or 10 years from now. I wanted In Intimate Detail to be a book you could feel comfortable giving to your mom or sister or cousin or aunt, to a friend who’s new to lingerie or recently transitioning, or to a spouse who’s recently entered menopause or been diagnosed with breast cancer.

After reading this book, you’ll not only know the language of lingerie – the terminology and definitions you need to help find the pieces you want – you’ll also know “hidden” information like the purpose of bra seams, the difference between a fabric and a fiber, and the qualities of different types of lingerie materials. And, of course, the book has size charts, sample wardrobes, and appendices for various fit concerns, such as lingerie for trans women, pregnant people, and those with disabilities.

More than anything, I want In Intimate Detail to feel like a warm, welcoming invitation into the world of lingerie. It’s the kind of book you can curl up with wrapped in your favorite blanket holding a cup of tea. It truly represents everything I wish I’d known when I started blogging, and it’s the best book I could possibly write. If you love lingerie or if you love The Lingerie Addict, then you’ll love In Intimate Detail.

One thing you’ll notice, especially if you view the preview images on this page, is that In Intimate Detail has no photography. Instead, the book is full of beautiful watercolor illustrations by Sandy Wirt. That’s intentional. I want you to imagine yourself in this pieces. To fully immerse yourself and be open to all your possibilities…even if they’re options you’ve not considered before. In Intimate Detail will help you build the lingerie wardrobe of your dreams. Because you deserve beautiful underthings. And you deserve to feelbeautiful in your lingerie.
