CLEARWATER, Fla. — StorErotica Magazine announced today ballots for its 6th annual Awards honoring the soft goods portion of the industry to be presented at the International Lingerie Show (ILS) at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sept. 10-12.

The magazine said it has solicited the advice of retailers, manufacturers and distributors in deciding who they believe represented the soft goods industry with exemplary products and services during the past year.

Awards ballots, consisting of seven soft goods categories, and voter registration will be posted live online at StorEroticaAwards.com from Aug. 6-17.

"StorErotica is delighted to have our awards season culminate once again at the International Lingerie Show, the convention that defines the intimate fashion portion of our industry," editor Kristofer Kay said.

He added, "This season has proven that soft goods are as strong as ever in adult retail stores, thanks to those manufacturers who continue to offer sexy, affordable apparel to both men and women."

This year’s “soft product” awards include one new category: The Special Focus Award, honoring one special focus editorial produced by the publication over the past six issues This year the special award honors eight companies who were featured in the Special Focus on Corsets, which appeared in the Dec. 2011 issue.

“Corsets have dramatically evolved in the erotic retail industry, from a traditional one-use item into a versatile, multi-use piece of intimate apparel,” Kay said.  “Soft good manufacturers are once again seeking to capitalize on the revival and develop new styles of corsets for a new, broader range of customer.”

Other award categories include: “Lingerie Manufacturer of the Year,” “Dancewear Manufacturer of the Year,” “Costume Manufacturer of the Year,” “Shoe Manufacturer of the Year,” Accessory Manufacturer of the Year,” and “Online Retailer of the Year.”

The Awards will be presented on Sept. 10 during the opening night fashion show at ILS.
