(Hi! There are no pictures here because Patreon flags them as "adult content," so just imagine your favorite lingerie while you're reading the below.)

My name is Cora Harrington, and I'm the Founder and Editor in Chief of The Lingerie Addict,
the world's leading lingerie blog (and one of the only blogs anywhere dedicated exclusively to lingerie). I also love tea, comic books, science fiction and hard candy, and I've just recently moved to Manhattan.

My original career was in nonprofits, but I've been writing about lingerie for almost 10 years.
Though I'm an industry outsider, intimate apparel is my passion, and I see my mission as making the world of underthings friendlier, easier to understand, and more accessible to people who feel like it's not for them (which is most of us, I've found!).

Historically, The Lingerie Addict has focused primarily on lookbooks, lingerie shopping guides and product reviews - with the occasional more in-depth piece from time to time. And we're going to keep publishing that kind of content. However, I'd also like to expand The Lingerie Addict's outlook, because I truly believe we can be more than "just" a lingerie blog.

Think more in-depth articles (how about a tour of a lingerie factory?), more videos (would you like to watch someone sew a bra from start to finish?), and more fashion editorials (because lingerie is for everybody and every body...and the photos we see should reflect that).

Over the years, I've learned The Lingerie Addict's most important asset - the one thing we need to hang on to at all costs - is our independence.

The Lingerie Addict's perspective on lingerie is different from many other places. We focus on the fashion of lingerie, and being dedicated to a single topic means we can cover it in a way other outlets are unable to.

We have over 2,000 published articles in our archives, and while we are definitely a fashion blog, we also spotlight brands covering a wide range of sizes, share lingerie options for trans people, and discuss how lingerie intersects with conditions like fibromyalgia and vulvodynia. Furthermore, an emphasis on diverse and representative imagery is interwoven throughout the blog.

TLA's inclusive approach to lingerie is an essential part of what we do, and I feel like it's more important than ever to have a platform that makes people feel welcome and wanted - no matter their size, age, budget, race, religion, or ability.


If you've ever wanted a more inclusive vision of the fashion industry - and of the lingerie industry, specifically - you can help make that a reality by supporting our Patreon. Becoming a Patron means you are directly contributing to the kind of content you want to see in the world.

Contributing to our Patreon means you'll help fund projects, articles, interviews, photoshoots and research that otherwise wouldn't get made. You'll enable us to hire writers from a diverse range of backgrounds. And you'll help ensure we have the necessary funds for the inevitable emergency expenses that tend to pop up.

The Lingerie Addict is an independent business - one that's not bankrolled by any external investors or funders. Please don't think of your patronage as a charitable donation. Our operating expenses are in the thousands of dollars per month, and your funds go directly into The Lingerie Addict's (a.k.a. Treacle Media, LLC's) business accounts. With your support, we'll be able to create more of the content you love - both now and in the future.

Please know: there's no such a thing as too small of a patronage. Whether you're able to give $1 or $100, I want to personally thank you for your generosity and support.

I want The Lingerie Addict to be a place that not only makes you think about lingerie, but that also transports you to a realm of possibility. TLA is a place where you can take a break from the rest of the world with a gorgeous lookbook or immerse yourself in a niche topic, like lace design.

More than anything, I want The Lingerie Addict to be a place for you - where your interests, your concerns, your passions, and your points of view are front and center.

Thank you for reading this. And thank you for supporting The Lingerie Addict.
Tiers
Lingerie Novice
$1 or more per month
You're wonderful, and your patronage helps ensure my supply of tea never runs out so I can keep writing for you! You also get access to little, one-off blog posts where I share something I've noticed or a few thoughts here and there.
Lingerie Apprentice
$5 or more per month

Thank you! At this level, receive access to the above plus lookbook features and newsy thoughts on lingerie happenings.

Lingerie Ingenue
$10 or more per month

You're a star! We're going to try something new at this level, and make it a behind-the-scenes of the lingerie business tier. If you join at this level, I'd love to hear your thoughts or specific questions you have!

Lingerie Ambassador
$25 or more per month

Unfortunately, for medical reasons, I can no longer offer a monthly livestream. But this is now the personal shopping tier! Every other month, I can put together a list of recommendations based on what you're looking for - whether it's items in a certain size, special color, or to suit a particular event or location.

Lingerie Addict
$100 or more per month

Welcome to the inner circle! By popular demand, this is now the tier for personalized lingerie consults by phone - including business consultations! For half an hour, every other month, we can talk issues relevant to your business or about the lingerie questions you have. In the past, Patrons have used this tier to discuss custom lingerie options, but it could work just as well for a new or emerging lingerie business or for someone who's on the verge of a major life event.

Goals
88% complete
At this amount, we will be able to fully cover the costs of running The Lingerie Addict every month (which includes hosting fees, writer payments, bookkeeping, various independent contractor payments, insurance, utilities, and so on) as well as funding things like product reviews.
