It is the age old question - quality or quantity? Do you fill your drawers with flimsy frillies or splurge on one particularly expensive piece? Some expensive brands can easily set you back by several hundred dollars, but is the price worth it? What makes expensive lingerie better than medium priced good quality garments?
Cheap vs. High End
Almost everyone who purchases designer and high-end garments knows that branding and design have a massive role to play in the pricing of the products. That’s the case with almost all high-end clothing, including lingerie. I mean, don’t get me wrong, there can be a distinct difference in the quality and design of cheap lingerie and those that cost hundreds of dollars. It is no secret that often the high-end products are more comfortable, have a better fit, are made from softer and much fancier materials.
Over on the cheap side of the tracks, the garments are usually made from poor quality fabrics and would literally only look good on a Victoria’s Secret model (maybe). Some can be a little too tight, while others are a little too loose and offer horrid support. Also, the materials aren’t as breathable, which can lead to icky rashes and infections.
Let's be honest, high-end lingerie products are made from the best materials and have great designs. They also tend to fit better and last longer. Having said this, experts suggest that you should discard your lingerie after using it for a certain period of time, which is why many people choose to purchase more affordable lingerie. However, the quality of the garments matters a lot as well. That makes high-end products worth the price you pay for them.
What about Medium Priced Lingerie?
When I got into this business, I vowed to offer quality lingerie that wouldn’t break the bank, so that all of the Sasha’s girls out there can look great but still afford those Friday cocktails. The fact is, you don’t need to shell out hundreds of dollars to purchase lingerie of good quality. You just need to find the right balance between the price and the quality of the product.
These sets usually cost around $50 and are made from excellent quality material. They’re also designed to fit well, provide ample support, and be breathable. In short, you get the best of both worlds. You don’t have to burn a hole in your pocket but don’t need to compromise on comfort and design either.
Is there a difference between High-End Lingerie and Mid-Range Products?
The short answer is not really. People purchase high-end designer lingerie because it makes them feel good. They want to splurge on themselves or reward themselves with an expensive product that looks beautiful. This allure is completely understandable and it’s not a bad idea to indulge in it once in a while.
Competition ensures that manufacturers will deliver a good product even at a lower price point. Customers pay extra for these products because they expect good fit, better comfort, and ample support. Unfortunately, most of the time they are just paying for the label.
In fact, you might find that some mid range lingerie is much more comfortable when compared to the more expensive products available in the market. Designer and high end lingerie are often show pieces and aren’t suitable for everyday wear. You might want to wear them for special occasions like your wedding or on a special date. However, few people wear expensive lingerie when at work or while visiting friends.
Lingerie shopping can be a little confusing because of the number of products and different sizes available in the market. It’s a good idea to do some research and find a designer or company that provides the best fitting bras and panties for your particular body shape.
So look, let's be real. Obviously, I am going to tell you that midrange lingerie is the best option because that's exactly where Sasha’s Intimates falls. But I haven’t always been in this industry. Once upon a time, I was just like you. I tossed up price and material and felt lost. I had cheap items, and expensive items and couldn't quite grasp what I was paying for. So I took my curiosity so far that I ended up creating my own brand. I am so glad you’re here, reading my story and following my journey.
Until next time,
