The Lingerie Addict Awards: The 20 Best Lingerie Brands of 2015

Welcome to TLAs last editorial post of 2015! Our Best of the Year feature, an annual tradition since 2009, is meant to be a roundup of some of the most interesting, exciting, innovative, and noteworthy brands in the world of intimate apparel today.

My team and I are share our favorites and recommendations, discussing which brands we think are standouts and which ones we should watch for another year. I review news articles and tradeshow reports, as well as TLAs own stats and social media platforms, to see whats made an impression on our readers or the names people have consistently recommended all year. And finally, the last little bit of it is just gut instinct. Who do we feel is about make waves? Whos doing something truly unique that weve never seen before? If two brands are neck-and-neck for a particular category, is one doing a little bit more than the other to push the industry forward in some way?

As always, this years list, despite being put together with a lot of thought and care, is entirely subjective. My idea of what constitutes an outstanding brand may be different from yours, and I encourage you to share your own favorites or top picks in the comments section below. If youre wondering about previous years, take a look at our Lingerie Addict Award winners from the past: 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009.

In your opinion, what makes a lingerie brand truly remarkable? And what are you hoping to see more of from the lingerie industry in 2016?
