Panty Lust: my favorite lingerie sites

It must seem obvious at this point that I derive a great deal of enjoyment from lingerie.  If I could spend the rest of my life in — and all of my budget on — my underwear, I would be a happy camper.  I’m sheepish to admit that a good chunk of my day is spent in front of my computer, coffee at hand and cat in lap, lustily scrolling through lingerie sites and blogs.  My credit card all but tap dancing in my wallet, eager to be used to satiate my lacy cravings.  Sadly though, reason (usually) wins out and I resign myself to my Target thongs and Filene’s Basement bargains.  But it’s a wonderful hour spent in online knicker stimulation.  If you would like to join me, here are a few of my favorite sites.  Grab your beverage, sit back, stroke your cat (that was a cheap pun, I know — irresistable) and enjoy!

Online Boutiques

What Katie Did

I love this designer.  Beautifully fashioned lingerie for the lingerie lover.  The Harlow group really floats my boat.

Agent Provocateur

As a design student, this label was a huge influence.  And it’s no wonder.  Co-founder Joseph Corres is the son of Vivienne Westwood, one of my all-time favorite designers.  They consistently produce pieces that are just dead sexy without the saccharine frothiness that usually comes with the territory. If I could only wear lingerie from one designer for the rest of my life, this would be the one.

Lucy B

My advisor at FIDM told me about this label when I was looking for design work.  I didn’t get a job with them, but I’m pretty content being a customer!  Lucy B’s collections are light and fun with just the right amount of nostalgia.  And tons of retailers carry them, so you can frequently find pieces in local lingerie boutiques.

StockinGirl

I really, really have a thing for hosiery.  Stockings, tights, socks — all of it.  And if you have as strong of a fetish for leg lingerie as I do, then this site will be a favorite bookmark.

Secrets in Lace

A fantastic source for traditional and retro-inspired lingerie at great prices, especially if you have some rocking curves.  And they have a fabulous collection of hosiery!

Kiss Me Deadly

Kiss Me Deadly seems to be the bridge between vintage and modern sex appeal.  Not only is every piece surprising and devastatingly sexy, but their styling is positively delightful. Plus, I have a serious girl crush on their model, Morgana.

And my favorite lingerie blog…

The Lingerie Addict

I feel like Treacle is a trusted friend with some really savvy opinions on lingerie.  Once I discovered it, this blog quickly made itself at home in my online ritual.  It’s the most comprehensive source for advice, style, and lingerie worship that I’ve found.  If I have a question about lingerie, I look here first.

This would be a very long article if I listed all of my favorites, but I hope you found some inspiration in these few.  Happy lusting!
