We can’t be the only ones who scratch our heads at the insane prices lingerie can go for. While we’ll be the first to point out that luxury lingerie deserves admiration for its intricate designs and delicate fabrics, purchasing a pair of panties at a cost equivalent to a designer dress seems mind boggling. Dressing up — or down depending on how you see it — shouldn’t involve also stripping your bank account in the process. And if we’re digging deep into the intent behind shopping for lingerie in the first place, dropping over $300 on a lacy number we’re planning on getting “messy” in feels like an oxymoron.
So to show you lingerie can still be fun without the sticker shock, we’re brining you a few brands that feature the same sexy trends for less than $100. Sure, you’ll always find the odd silk robe at, surprise, silk robe prices, but the brands ahead do a decent job at cutting those traditional lingerie prices in half. No more resorting to your department store’s questionably manufactured panty bundles. Step ahead for 6 brands that are so good they’re almost un- bra -leivable!
Only Hearts’ founder and designer Helena Stuart has stuck true to her core branding since 1978. The NYC based lingerie line delivers a bit of edge mixed in with traditional feminine accents. There’s truly a bralette for everyone at this shop.
What’s more impressive than Naja’s affordable prices is the process in which the products are made. Its garment factory primarily employs single mothers, pays them above market wages, and provides their children with basic amenities like cash for school supplies and meals. And did we mention their inclusive nude color line?
I’m just going to leave you with this: DD and DDD sized bralettes.
This organic cotton underwear company supports size-inclusivity while creating a genuinely eco friendly product. That statement alone is enough to swap out your overpriced t-shirt bras for a well-made and supportive cotton one.
If the name looks a bit familiar, that’s probably because Intimissimi has spent the better part of the year heavily investing in a U.S. expansion. Think of it as an Agent Provocateur inspired brand on a Victoria’s Secret budget. Here you’ll find plenty of bridal appropriate options and silky pajama sets.
