Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Lingerie lover Cora Harrington began writing The Lingerie Addict in her studio apartment 5 years ago after being frustrated with the lack of lingerie information available for consumers online. Today, the blog reaches 150,000 visitors per month and has readers from 180 countries around the world. The blog's social media following is over 80,000 strong, and The Lingerie Addict has also been featured on the websites for Vogue Italia, Time Magazine, The Today Show, Fox News, and The Huffington Post.
"It's been an amazing experience, and one that I never imagined could have happened to me," says Ms. Harrington, who has worked tirelessly on the blog from day one. "My background is in non-profits, not the lingerie industry, and from the very beginning, the growth of The Lingerie Addict has been entirely reader driven. I'm so grateful my readers believe in what we're doing; they're why the blog is such a success."
Despite The Lingerie Addict's rapid growth, Ms. Harrington continues to answer all reader emails personally. In addition, since beginning the blog five years ago, its subject matter has expanded beyond shopping tips and fit concerns and into the social and cultural issues that often affect the lingerie industry.
The Lingerie Addict's mission is to talk about lingerie in a way that's relevant for women of every size and budget. Special emphasis is placed on body positivity as well as on women buying beautiful lingerie for themselves rather than for a significant other. The Lingerie Addict has famously declared the blog and all associated social media presences to be a 'body snark free zone' and enforces this policy within the comments.
To celebrate the success of The Lingerie Addict, the blog will be hosting giveaways for readers of all shapes and sizes. Farr West, Claudette, Elomi and Kiss Me Deadly are among the featured sponsors.
"The last five years have been incredibly exciting," says Ms. Harrington, "and I'm eager to see where the next five will take us."
