It's hard to believe that a tiny piece of fabric and two metal wires (optional!) could cost so much, but there are a ton of brands selling itsy-bitsy pieces of lingerie for hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars. Sure, it takes a lot of attention to detail and excellent craftsmanship to get the fit of a bra just right, and producing fancy lace is an intense and very expensive process, but don't let that get you (and your bank account) down. There are a few brands that have mastered the art of creating affordable undergarments that only look like the expensive stuff.

To make your life easier, we've gathered all of the best affordable lingerie brands below. So get ready to do some bookmarking and enjoy some luxurious-looking undies.
