[tps_header]Despite being a highstreet, accessible brand, Victoria’s Secret in fact dominates the list of most expensive lingerie pieces thanks to their coveted Fantasy Bra series that was introduced in 1996. First introduced to the runway in 2001, these jewel-studded, luxurious undergarments are considered masterpieces of high fashion lingerie. There hasn’t been a single Fantasy Bra that cost less than seven figures, but to give others a chance at making the list of high-priced, sexy undies, most of the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bras between $1 million and $5 million have been stricken from the record here. With that in mind, we’ve compiled an eye-watering rundown of 5 of the most expensive lingerie pieces ever designed.[/tps_header]
1. Susan Rosen Diamond Bikini – $30 million
Victoria’s Secret doesn’t top the list! The top of the list of most expensive lingerie pieces isn’t even a piece of lingerie, it’s a “bikini,” just about. This dental-floss-sized swimsuit was designed by Susan Rosen for Sports Illustrated’s 2012 Swimsuit Issue. It is worth a whopping $30 million. Molly Sims took the honors of showcasing the bikini (and a whole lot of skin) which is an assembly of over 150 carats of D flawless diamonds. The thong contains one of the world’s largest pear-shaped diamonds, weighing in at 51-karats, in addition to a 31-karat emerald-cut diamond. All of these stones are set in platinum, making this teeny bikini the most expensive masterpiece of lingerie in the world.
