12 Affordable Lingerie Brands That Actually Look Expensive
So, you're in the market for some lingerie, but the price tags on those cheeky panties and classic push-up bras? Not exactly within budget. It's hard to believe that so little fabric can cost so freakin' much (like, hundreds of dollars for a thong?!), but thankfully, there are plenty of great and affordable options out there — if you know where to look.
Brands such as Savage x Fenty and even good ol' Aerie sell items that, yes, are technically cheap but quality at the same time. In other words, they're cute, will do their job, live through laundry day, and even last you for years to come. If your underwear drawer is in need of an update, check out our full list of stores to hit up, ahead. Now anyone can be the owner of luxurious-looking lingerie, without going into debt.

If you're in the market for a lace bralette or everyday pairs of underwear (with quirky prints, of course), Aerie is your best bet. Not only is this store affordable, it aims to keep every shape and size in mind. Plus, there's almost always some sort of sale or discount going on, and if you're looking to buy in bulk, panties are 6 for $25.

The vintage nightgown trend may be happening, but if sexy options are more your style, Bare Necessities is the place to go. Satin robes and babydoll sets ring in under $50, with plenty of pieces going up to 3x. There's also a large selection of wire-free bras if you want both comfort and support.

You know that kind of lingerie that practically begs to be shown off? Bluebella has a whole lot of that. Its selection of cutout bras and silky rompers will make you feel as if you're about to walk the runway, which is quite the tradeoff considering everything (even full pajama sets) is under $100.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.nordstrom.com/brands/commando--6604" title="Commando" context="body"]
Affordable lingerie that's also celebrity-approved? Nope, it's not too good to be true. Commando is indeed the brand that celebrities turn to for red-carpet appearances, since its seamless underwear is undetectable underneath the thinnest of dresses. Add a pair to your cart — guilt-free! — along with some bodysuits, slips, and tights, all of which are top-notch.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.net-a-porter.com/en-us/shop/designer/hanky-panky" title="Hanky Panky" context="body"]
Some brands sell just one pair of lace underwear for $60, but with Hanky Panky, that's the price you'll pay for three. Between the bright colors, prints, and neutrals, you'll be tempted to stock up on on everything from stretchy thongs to bodysuits.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.shopbop.com/honeydew-intimates/br/v=1/6802.htm" title="Honeydew Intimates" context="body"]
Some days, you might crave sweet, cozy pajama sets, while others call for bondage-like designs. Honeydew offers budget-friendly versions of both, so don't have to choose.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.intimissimi.com/us/women/collections/bridal_collection/" title="Intimissimi" context="body"]
While they have the paychecks to afford the fancy stuff, celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Dakota Johnson are still fans of the beautifully-crafted bras, underwear, and pajamas from this brand — which go as low as $15 (and no, that's not sale price). Plus, if you're getting ready to say "I do" you'll definitely want to poke around on the site and check out the super sexy bridal collection.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.lovevera.com/" title="Love, Vera" context="body"]
Not every brand makes sexy, strappy bodysuits and teddies up to a size 3x/4x (although they should), but that's why Love, Vera is so special. Even better, even their steamiest pieces won't cost you more than $50, so you can have a fun night in without depleting your bank account.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.savagex.com/" title="Savage x Fenty" context="body"]
As if Rihanna wasn't already talented enough, she's become the queen of sexy underwear, too. In need of a reasonably priced strapless bra to wear with your tank top, but are also into lime green garters and nipple pasties? This brand has it all, and in a range of sizes. Plus, for a monthly fee, you can join the VIP club and get small discounts, and considering new special styles are released around holidays and events, it might just be worth it.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.nordstrom.com/brands/spanx--680" title="Spanx" context="body"]
Spanx is famous for its shapewear, but the brand actually offers so much more than that. You can have your pick of everyday bras, bodysuits, and even leggings for well under $100, and you can even dress your bump in some of their maternity gear.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.thirdlove.com/" title="ThirdLove" context="body"]
While the top bra from this brand is just under $70, a few extra bucks is worth it in this case. Not only do ThirdLove items come in a variety of colors, they also go up to a 48 band and an I cup.
[tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.nordstrom.com/brands/wacoal--1075" title="Wacoal" context="body"]
This brand is known for everyday bras that set the bar, but they also make everything from panties to bodysuits to gowns. And if you're lucky, you can catch some great markdowns at department stores like Bloomingdale's.
