why do people spend so much money at victorias secret for bras and underwear when you can get the same stuff a lot cheaper? I know a girl in my class who says she will only go to victorias secret and has over 30 bras from there. why spend so much
okay I'm not really getting the whole quality thing because I still find no difference...im not saying go get a $5 bra that's made of plastic or anything... whatever I still think its because how the advertise and say oohh you will be incredible you will be sexy
quality, fit, comfort, and looks. now I don't have 30 bras from VS, but I do have a couple and they wash a lot better and tend to keep their shape better than bras from other stores. they also give me better support and make my girls look a little nicer compared to other bras, and often times the material used is nicer and fabric is softer.
clearly you don't know when or how to shop there though because you can get some really good coupons online and you can actually combine them with any sales they have going on. best time to shop is during the semi annual sale - especially if you have a winter or summer birthday since you also get something like a $10-15 off coupon/card. that will take a good chunk off of that bra you want and it won't be any more expensive than the others since most GOOD bras are at least $15-20 depending on where you go and if they have a sale running as well.
now I'll admit some of the new stuff at regular price is very expensive but it's all in the strategy, ladies. I'm am a super frugal girl which is why you have to know how to prioritize shopping.
In general, people are not great shoppers and all too often are drawn by the allure of the brand. Vicky's has a great brand name and does a good job of marketing, but I agree you can often get the same stuff for way less. Especially these days with the Internet.
Being that I'm not a girl, I don't know from experience (and if I did that would be bad) but I know many girls who say that they have to go to more expensive places like VS or other similar places because more conventional (cheaper) bras don't fit them as well as they are not standard sizing.
You're actually a very smart little chic. My parents went thought the great depression and it was hard to find things to eat. Well, not to scare you, but there's on looming now I think. You're not a flyer and you're already down to earth. So if we do plunge into a another great depression, I'm sorry to say but you're friend will be haven a hard landing.
I can't really comment on the bra thing. But panties at VS are very nice. And there is something sexy about wearing a panty that has a VS label in it. I also really like FOH (Fredericks of Hollywood) panties. They may be more expensive, but I think that they are more cute.
Because they're good quality. When I was younger I went to target to get some bras because they were cheaper and they fell apart pretty fast. I've had some victoria's secret bras for years and they're still just as great as when I bought them. And you don't have to buy them full price, that semi-annual sale has some great deals and I think Pink always has a set of bra's where you can get 2 for $32. That and they have some really nice stuff and I don't mind spending the money...there's a reason people shop there.
VS Pink is suppose to market towards college girls... not middle school-high school girls (hence the collegiate clothing). I find it disgusting when I see middle school girls wear VS Pink. by the way, the models are all at the appropriate age to be wearing those clothes... they're not 10 year olds modeling in an underwear saying "let's make things happen."
And I find VS models better than most models out there. At least they're a elite group of women who aren't stick skinny and aren't under normal model body type.
Because usually victorias secret have comfortable bras and fits right. Good bras usually cost about $40. For girls who are fuller cupped, like me, buying cheap bras from target or something doesn't fit well at all, it's actually money down the drain. VS bras actually last a bit longer too. I mean.. I can go to soma and get really comfortable bras there too but they make me feel old lol and they're about $40 too. And every year they have a couple of semi-annual sales where you can get it A LOT cheaper. If I can buy lingerie for a cheaper price and the same quality, I really would, but that doesn't exist (at least as far as I know it).
The quality is a million times better. If I were to wear a bra from Wal-mart or something, I would have to wear two at the same time just to feel comfortable because they do not do the job nearly as well as bras of higher quality (which also happen to be more expensive). Also, bras and panties from Victoria's secret or other similar stores look sexier.
yea its true the quality probably is better and if you think about it their reputation is just generally a lot better than most other department stores when it comes to undergarments because they do specialize in it after all! its so ridiculous though that something as essential as bras and panties can be so expensive :( in my perfect world bras would be $20 or cheaper with no tax!
I'm the same way as your friend- I'll occasionally buy things from somewhere else, but the majority of my underwear by far comes from VS. This is because I know my size so it's easy for me to order things online or find things in the store that fit, and because I just really like the quality of their stuff. I'm extremely sensitive to itchy or poky clothing and it's hard for me to find comfy bras elsewhere.
The fabric is very good for panties; as well as bras but I myself barely wear bras so I just buy their panties & they really aren't that expensive when you compare them to the prices at department stores like Macy's or even JcPenney
omg we finally got a vic sec here in canada, and fk it's so expensive. I can understand buying nice lingerie for a special occasion but just for bras? I would stick to something cheaper. Unless it was for a wedding or something that's different.
One major reason why my friend goes there is because they have really good quality bras. She is a triple D so she needs top notch bras for support. I can get away with cheaper ones because I'm not quite as well endowed.
Victorias Secret isn't expensive at all, although I prefer Maidenform or Calvin Klein. VS is relatively cheap, not to mention, I have big boobs, I need good quality bras,not Target(Xhiliration) or Hanes
its the most comfortable underwear you can buy. in my opinion
yeah I like VS because I'm a DD and I can't just pick up any bra from any cheap store. brand or no brand, people can argue all they want but these people are usually smaller boobed girls or men. I have ginormous t*ts and I need good quality and support and usually you get what you pay for. VS isn't my all time favorite I don't think, but its up there with the brands that make bras for my size in a variety of styles, color, and with comfort and good support for me. I guess if I were a B or even a small C, I could just buy cheaper bras from any random place. I've tried that before and they aren't as good for girls with big boobs like me. Even other brands that I like outside of VS are expensive because it seems like cheap in the bra world = cheaper quality as well. I have a lot of VS bras (maybe 25 right now), and I'd rather spend 40 on a bra that works than 20 on a flimsy thing that isn't right for me.
Because they think it'll make them look and feel sexier cause they see all the beautiful models. Models sell. What do they sell? They sell hope because they make the clothes looks good. It's the this idea of sexy that every woman wants to be
im a DDD so its hard to find really good bras anyother places...and they are really cute!:P
When your bra size is 32DD, Victoria's secret is pretty much the only place where you can find more than 2 bras in the entire store...
it;s like a status symbol
it's like buying a gucci instead of a department store bag
