Who never wanted to add some sparkle and luxury to their lives? Maybe you buy champagne once in a while, or a good wine. Maybe it's a luxurious car; even a house. A mansion? Why not?
But have you ever thought about something that would be worth more than all of your possessions together? One single item that, usually, is part of half of the world's routine? We (women) put them on in the morning and take them off, often, as soon as we get home. You're getting it now...a bra.
What if a bra was worth more than everything you have and anything you'll ever own?Well, since Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra in 1994, this has become a reality. Ranging from a "mere" $1 million (so cheap) to $20 million, these pieces of exquisite art are breathtaking to look at.
So here are 11 of the most expensive bras you'll never be able to afford. Be ready, they sparkle so much you could go blind!
11 Bombshell Fantasy Bra - $2 Million
Don't you love diamonds? Like... Love diamonds to the point you want them on your body? Victoria’s Secret has collaborated with Damiani to create this Bombshell Fantasy Bra in 2010, which is basically a constellation of white diamonds and sapphires which sparkle with the same fire as the real stars themselves! And that beautiful bra is made of 142 carats of exquisite jewels, including 60 carats of white diamonds and 82 carats of topazes and sapphires. What's even better? The Bombshell Fantasy Bra is rumored to add two sizes to your breasts!
Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima was the lucky one to wear this piece of art at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November 2010.
10 Black Diamond Fantasy Miracle Bra – $5 Million
Adriana Lima hasn't stopped herself by just wearing $2 million bejeweled bras. No. She wore this breathtaking black diamond bra in 2008. Worth $5 million, the Victoria's Secret bra is reportedly composed of 3.575 black diamonds, 117 certified one-carat white round diamonds, 34 rubies and two 50-carat black diamonds, which are hanging from the middle.
The Black Diamond Fantasy Miracle bra was designed by world-renown jeweler Martin Katz, whose creations were seen on the red carpet in 2013 at the Emmy Awards.
9 Hearts On Fire Diamond Fantasy Bra – $6.5 Million
In 2006, Karolina Kurkova modeled the Hearts On Fire Diamond Fantasy Bra, which is valued at $6.5 million! The Hearts On Fire Diamond Fantasy Bra is made of 2,000 perfectly cut and polished diamonds, making the gems more sparkly than anything you might have seen before. It took over 300 hours of labour to assemble this piece of legendary lingerie, and over 200,000 hours to cut and polish those diamonds!
The Victoria's Secret bra also features a 10-carat diamond brooch shaped into a Victorian flower. Bling-bling!
8 Heavenly 70 Fantasy Bra – $10 Million
Designed by jeweler Mouawad, the Heavenly 70 Fantasy Bra has, surprisingly, found a buyer! And not all Fantasy bras are bought... I'm sure you can understand why.
Priced at $10 million, this delicate bra was worn in 2004 by Tyra Banks. The lingerie is composed of 2,900 diamonds, which are set in 18-carat white gold. And to top it all, a 70-carat pear-cut diamond sits like a Queen on the throne in the centre of the bra.
7 Star Of Victoria Fantasy Bra – $10 Million
Also valued at $10 million, the Star of Victoria Fantasy Bra is also one you'll probably never be able to afford.
The first Fantasy Bra was designed in 1996 and was modeled by Claudia Schiffer. It was seen on the cover of the Victoria’s Secret Christmas catalogue. However, it was only in 2002 that it was brought to the catwalk show. Heidi Klum was the first model to wear one of the Fantasy Bras. In the picture above, Karolina Kurkova, is wearing the Star of Victoria Fantasy bra, which is the second Fantasy Bra to have hit the catwalk. That beautiful piece of lingerie is composed of 1,150 rubies and 1 600 emeralds, according to reports.
6 Royal Fantasy Bra – $10 Million
Is this Princess Peach's lingerie of choice? This Royal Fantasy Bra was featured in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2013.
It was created by Mouawad and has a 52-carat pear-shaped ruby centerpiece, adding the royal to this gem! The Fantasy Bra also comes with a matching belt (don't put it in the washing machine). Both the bra and the belt are made of 18-carat gold and composed of over 4,200 jewels, including diamonds, rubies, and blue and yellow sapphires. It does look pretty royal, doesn't it?
5 Very Sexy Fantasy Bra – $11 Million
The Very Sexy Fantasy Bra, priced at $11 million, leaves nothing to the imagination. In 2003, it was modeled by Heidi Klum. The bra features 2, 900 diamonds and 22 rubies, set in 18-carat white gold. I amazingly took some 370 hours to create. Now that's commitment.
But what you really want to be looking at is that huge 101 carat and flawless pear-shaped stone that hangs low on Klum's abdomen. That diamond is probably worth at least half of the bra price, all by itself.
4 Sexy Splendor Fantasy Bra – $12.5 Million
In 2005, Gisele Bundchen wore her second Fantasy Bra, worth $12.5 million, which was labeled the "sexy bra."
The Sexy Splendor Fantasy Bra is made of 2,900 diamonds and 22 rubies. Because the Fantasy Bra normally includes a huge and impressive middle piece, this one features a 101-carat pear drop diamond hanging from the middle strap. It took over 300 hours of labour to create and assemble this amazing bra. The precious gems are set on 18-carat white gold.
3 Heavenly Star Bra – $12.5 million
The Heavenly Star Bra, was on at one point, the world’s most expensive bra in 2001, according to the Guinness Book Of World Records. But it was later dethroned by other creations which are number 2 and 1 of this article.
Created by Victoria’s Secret, the Heavenly Star bra was modeled by Heidi Klum and is composed of 1,200 Sri Lankan sapphires, as well as a 90-carat emerald-cut diamond in the centre worth $10.6 million! That's something you'd see in The Wolf of Wall Street!
2 Red Hot Fantasy Bra – $15 Million
Gisele Bundchen's first Fantasy Bra was the Red Hot Fantasy Bra. Valued at $15 million, it held the Guinness World Record for most expensive bra ever created until 2006, when it was dethroned by the Molly Sims Bra.
The lingerie was made of 1 300 precious gems including 300-carat rubies. It's a piece of a rare quality which is more art than lingerie. While most Fantasy Bras have a middle stone that's, usually, worth more than your house, this one is simpler in it's overall creation, but much more dashing than any other.
1 Molly Sims Bra – $20 Million
In 2006, the most valuable (and minimalist) bra in the world was created and it's worth $20 million! This bra, which isn't seen here due to its revealing nature, was designed by Susan Rosen, who adorned it with Steinmetz Diamonds.
The bra is made of more than 254 carats of flawless diamonds of all shapes and sizes. And that's not all! Instead of cloth to make all these jewels hold together, Rosen chose platinum!
Molly Sims, who modeled this bra, said in an interview that she was so nervous wearing the bikini worth together $30 million (bra and panties), that she was really sweaty and felt horrible during the photoshoot.
