If the point of lingerie is to feel outrageously sexy, then the corsets, bedazzled bras and waspies (to accentuate your waist) win hands down. There are even whips and nipple pasties for the more adventurous. Elegant saleswomen wait on you like the queen you are, and when you’re dropping this much money on panties, that’s the way it should be. While everything is exquisitely detailed, even the delicates are sturdy enough to hold up to some play.
