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 pieces of lingerie ever designed.
5. Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Fantasy Bra – $11 million
The reason for its ridiculous price tag stemmed from the 70-carat diamond embedded in the center (the second largest in the world). At the time, the “Very Sexy” bra was the Guinness World Record holder for being the most luxurious and expensive piece of lingerie ever made.
4. Victoria’s Secret Heavenly Star Fantasy Bra – $12.5 million
The “Heavenly Star Fantasy Bra” was the first ever Fantasy Bra to appear on the runway. It began the tradition in 2001, and Heidi Klum was the first supermodel chosen to wear the tight-fitting brassiere. The “Heavenly Star” featured 1,200 Sri Lankan pink sapphires and a 90-carat emerald-cut diamond in its center.
3. Victoria’s Secret Sexy Splendor Fantasy Bra – $12.5 million
It boasted 2,900 pave-set diamonds and 22 rubies, all interwoven and set in 18-karat white gold. The hanging centerpiece was a 101-carat Mouawad Splendor diamond. Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen was chosen to wear this piece, making it her second Fantasy Bra.

2. Victoria’s Secret Red Hot Fantasy Bra and Panties – $15 million
This beautiful crimson bra-and-panty set was made of red satin and was decorated with 1,300 gemstones, including 300 carats of Thai rubies. Gisele Bündchen was chosen to wear the piece of art. Currently, the “Red Hot” Fantasy Bra set holds the Guinness World Record for the most extravagant and expensive underwear ever created.
1. Susan Rosen Diamond Bikini – $30 million
The top of the list 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, 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.
