Cheap Sexy Lingerie Ideas

Updated November 21, 2016

Sexy lingerie comes in all colours, shapes and sizes -- as well as prices. Spending a lot on articles that may either never been seen or only be worn for a short period of time may seem like a waste of money. Fortunately, it is possible to find almost any type of lingerie for a cheap price without giving up sex appeal!

Less Is More

One of the good things about lingerie, budget-wise, is that since most items of lingerie are quite small, there is less to scrutinise and so low-quality is less of an issue. (This is primarily true of undergarments that are worn predominately as lingerie, not daily-wear underwear.) For example, consider the square inches involved when purchasing a thong -- at most, about nine square inches. While you could purchase one for £65 from a high-end manufacturer (or even the world's most expensive thong, the £79,300, diamond-studded Triumph Luxurious Diamond Thong), odds are not many people will notice the difference between it and a £1.30 thong from a mass merchandiser. The moral of the story is: the smaller an item is, the easier it is to get away with sacrificing quality to save a little (or sometimes a lot!) of cash.

Clearance & Sales

Sales and clearance are often a great way to purchase cheap-but-still-sexy lingerie. After all, trends in lingerie fluctuate much less frequently than other fashion categories. This means that you don't need to worry about most items of lingerie on the clearance rack being dated or out of style; it also means that if you find a lingerie set you like, you can feel more free to wait to purchase it until it goes on sale without needing to worry about its becoming a fashion faux pas.

Coupons

When you find a lingerie store or brand that you particularly love, sign up to be on its mailing list. That way you can receive regular updates on price cuts -- and often you can also receive coupons by mail, e-mail or text. Using coupons is a great way to purchase the sexy lingerie you want at a price you can afford.

Inexpensive "Splurges"

For some occasions it is nice to have a high-quality piece of lingerie, but it may be difficult to justify spending a lot of money on such a tiny (yet important!) scrap of fabric. For these occasions, it also pays to consider small pieces of lingerie. For example, a luxury bra-and-panty set or babydoll might be out of your reach, even if it is on sale. Here again, the less-is-more mentality pays off! A small, silky thong or wispy negligee can be incredibly sexy -- and easier to find inexpensively than items with more structure, like a bustier or complicated ensemble.
