Starting in 1996, Victoria’s Secret set out to create the most expensive bras in the world. Encrusted with diamonds and other precious stones, these beautiful creations have been crafted with the help of the best jewelers in the world.
Unfortunately, Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bras usually only last for a year. Without a seller, they go back to the jeweler, where they’re dismantled. That hasn’t stopped them from taking over the imagination of millions. See the most expensive bras in the world.
