5 stores better then Victoria’s Secret

I’m just going to say it! I’m not that into Victoria’s Secret (Put the pitchforks down!)

I think they’re grossly overpriced, and their quality isn’t even a little bit worth the money. I’ve never had any clothing from there that didn’t get little pinholes in it, and while their bras are decent quality, I detest the fabric that they’re lined with.

While I do understand the science behind paying for the name, if I’m going to shell out $50 for yoga pants, I expect them to last me (but yoga pants are not what this article is about, so I’ll let that go)
So now that I’ve made my shopping preferences clear,  I’m going to share with you places that I find much better then the “Classic” Victoria’s secret for bras, undies and swimwear, while still being affordable.

Adore Me

I know you’ve all heard about this one. You’ve all seen the ads on Pinterest. I’ve tried them out, and their quality is on point.
You can sign up for a subscription, or just buy things one at a time, I’ve tried their bras and swimwear, and I honestly have no complaints. The shipping is quick, the price is more the fair and the quality is definitely there.

If you haven’t tried them yet, I definitely suggest that you do!

The Italian brand has high quality and a good selection. What more could you ask for?!

Bare Necessities


One of the best things about this brand is their variety in sizes. If you’re not one of the typical A-D sizes, you might want to check them out.
Plus, they’re also insanely affordable. So you definitely need to check that out ASAP!



Okay, this one I’ve never actually tried, but I’ve been really wanting to! It is a little less affordable then some of the other brands that I’ve mentioned. But they’re also just so lacy and so beautiful! If you’ve tried these guys out tell me what you think!



Let’s be real, Is there anything we can’t count on Nordstrom for? I know it might not your first thought when looking for bras or undies, but don’t rule it out completely as an option!

there are tons of great styles, and tons of different prices so it shouldn’t be too hard to find something that you can love and afford!
Plus, you can check the shoe sale while you’re there! What else do you need?


So I hope after all of this, you decide to maybe check some different places before VS. I’ll admit I’ll stop in there when I’m walking around the mall, and I love their perfumes! It’s just not my first stop for anything apparel related.

Thank you all for reading, and please share your thoughts!!

    I thought I was the only person who though so. Each time I visit Victoria Secret I just window shop because I think most of their stuffs are way too expensive though they’re nice. I always end up buying there body spray. Lol

      right?! their fragrence isn’t bad at all, I actually like them. But their clothes/ intimates… I really can’t stand them. They are cute but the quality is no bueno! (in my humble opinion haha) and If I’m going to be spending so much, I expect decent quality.

        Personally I don’t fancy their intimate wears. I keep asking myself what they sell in store is it really the same thing the models wear during their launch? I prefer H&M , CK, Bouxavenue etc

          Oh yeah I didn’t even think to mention CK. That’s a great one too. I’ve never checked out H&M intimates. I’ll definitely have to now!
