World’s most expensive bras
Victoria’s Secret expensive lingerie has changed the way the world sees the haute couture garment. Following the trend started by the American retailer with its limited edition bras studded with precious stones, the designers and renowned jewelers from around the world have debuted bejeweled bras made out of gold, and embellished with diamonds and crystals. From the push up bras to the sports bra, we have listed here the world’s most expensive bras through the years.
$1 million bra by Birmingham Estate and Jewelry Buyers
Moulded out of 18 carat gold and encrusted in 500 carats of diamonds, the $1 million solid-gold brasserie at the Birmingham Estate and Jewelry Buyers, which took over three months to design and took a crew of 40 workers almost a full year to make, is much more than just an article of clothing. The major design difference between the million-dollar Victoria’s Secret bras is that retailer’s designer bras have ‘fabric’ in them and the diamonds are kind of embellished into the fine fabric. Whereas, this particular gold bra created by the jewelry store owner Anthony Aubry, sports no fabric at all, as it’s crafted out of 750 grams of solid gold.
