yes, when i can afford it. chantelle's sexier bras are gorgeous, but at $90 a pop, i can only get one here and there.

I'll buy within my budget, but it's not something I'll "splurge" on, like I would on a new digital camera or a fabulous pair of shoes (hello upcoming wedding, there are currently 12 pairs of gorgeous shoes sitting in my closet because I can't decide which to keep and which to send back). It's not that I don't like lingerie, but it's not a priority on which to spend my money, when there are less expensive versions that serve the purpose just as well (plus there's not a huge incentive to spend a ton of money on something that's just going to wind up on the floor anyway!).

I am a big fan of nice lingerie, and it's one of the few areas where you really do get what you pay for. I can't afford to spend $100+ dollars on one set, but I buy pretty pieces here and there when I see ones with the right price. It's really lovely to have something like that just for yourself, that *you* know you have on. My husband enjoys it too, but it's really about romancing myself. ;)

Oh yeah, and VS definitely sucks for larger-breasted girls. Their bras fall apart, and for years they tried to convince me that I was a 34D or 34DD, when the truth is that they don't even carry my proper size. THANK GOODNESS FOR NORDSTROM'S. Those bra experts rock.

Depends on what you call a "splurge." My regular wear-under-anything bras are $72. It sucks, but those things fit so perfectly, and at a 32DDD, it's not like I can walk into any store and find something.I do consider it a splurge when I get something that's just pretty, but maybe not as practical. I do it a few times a year. Makes me feel French, because I imagine that French women wear sexy lingerie. ;)

I wear a lot of VS and Calvin Klein underwear. They've always been extremely comfortable and last until I decided I don't want them anymore.I use to work for VS and the bras do rip and break in the larger sizes. I'm only a 32b so I'm never had this problem and never saw anyone with smaller bra sizes bringing them back because of that reason. Whenever the bras would rip or break it was always women with larger bra sizes bringing them in. I guess they don't make a good bra for a larger breasted women. It's a pain.

I haven't, but I do think about splurgin every once in a while. I do like to have pretty or fun stuff, though. Just not expensive, pretty or fun stuff. :P Jess - I thought I was the only one who felt that way! I've bought a couple of bras from VS and a couple of them were very good quality, but one of them broke the third time I wore it! I've never had that happen with regular ol' bras from Macy's or wherever.

i don't think its really worth it because there are so many cute but inexpensive lingerie lines out there. i've found some great sexy pieces that were a great price!

I'd love to! But 1. sexy lingerie is an expensive hobby ;) and 2. I don't feel too comfortable with my body in general so buying sexy lingerie makes me feel kind of even more bad about myself because I'm not a VS model with super long legs and rounds breasts :(
