Christmas has me in the mood for lingerie shopping. I have a little extra spending money, and I’m having a hard time deciding what I’d like to treat myself to! I thought, what a perfect opportunity to do some online window shopping, and write the next addition to my Ultimate Lingerie Guide!
10. Agent Provocateur
AP is an obvious favourite among lingerie addicts. You’ll see plenty who seem to solely collection and covet pieces new and old from this magic brand that seems to have earned its place in the heart of many lovers of beautiful underpinnings. They used to have three categories, Agent Provocateur, Agent Provocateur Soiree, and L’Agent, recently dropping the last mentioned brand due to financial difficulties. I own a few L’Agent pieces, and recently purchased a brand new AP bra for only 40$ (one of the best deals I’ve ever had!). I took their big Boxing Day sale to treat myself to my first actual purchase of two sets! I will be posting reviews of those, soon. Their price ranges from moderate to luxurious, with sizes 32-36 A-E(DDD) available. I’ve attached some photos of my in my L’Agent, as well as some new AP photos I adore!
Bordelle is a longtime favourite of mine, which I highly credit with my love of fetish inspired lingerie. You’ve surely seen their famous strapped dresses and bras, completely adjustable and painfully sexy. Their size range has always held me back, but they’ve started selling more pieces in XL (they don’t use cup sizes unfortunately). I’m sure it would be far from a perfect fit but I consider those pieces to be closer to collectible art than practical fits. Bordelle has always been out of my budget as a luxury brand, but I’m hoping after I graduate I can start to save up for some of those pieces I covet. Bordelle is available in sizes SS-LL, with a price range of £47.50 for collars, up to £700.00 for their fully adjustable dresses.
12. La Perla
Let’s end this luxurious blog post with some drool worthy lingerie from everyone’s favourite, La Perla. Founded in the 50s, this designer has over half a century of experience in luxurious underpinnings. Their pieces are delicate, and exquisite, and classic. You won’t see trendy or traditionally flashy pieces from them, but every pieces has a timeless elegance that almost makes you want to frame your purchase. Their sizes range from 30B-40C with a few E and F cups available in small band sizes. Their prices range from about $100 for a panty from their basic line, to over $2000 for their beautiful bodysuits. A little much for the average shopper, but just within grasps enough to dream about.
