Yes, this post is for the ladies, but gentlemen who would like to know how much women spends on average for bras every year can read on if you want 🙂
I have a total of 13 bras that cost me $510.16! I would say I replace my bras at least once a year, except for the strapless, bandeau, feather-life and the bombshell bra as I only wear them when I need to wear a tube top or a backless dress.
Wow! $510 bucks on bras! I am actually quite surprised at the cost! A cost that men would probably never need to include into their budget. Hmm.. maybe it is worth a post on the cost of being a woman!
I have only bought bras from Victoria Secret, La Senza and Change. I switched from La Senza to Victoria Secret after La Senza was bought out by Victoria Secret because their styles seemed to have changed to more a more “blinged up” look. Last year I tried switching to Change, but I didn’t find their fit very comfortable.
I have been wearing the Victoria T-shirt bras for a while, but it seems like they feel great for the first 6 months. After 6 months, it just doesn’t feel the same, it’s just uncomfortable. I haven’t gained enough weight to go up a size (I checked by going in for a fitting and also trying on bigger sized bras and they all felt “too big” on me). I do wash it my bras in a delicate wash bag and I never put them into the dryer.
I have been thinking of switching to another line of Victoria Secret bras: Body by Victoria Secret, but they cost $42.50 – $52.50 per bra instead of $49.50 for 2 bras (T-shirt bras). I am still humming and hawing over the price. If I were to buy the Body by Victoria Secret, I will need to buy at least 4 bras every year, which would cost about $200 – $250 a year! Which doesn’t sound that bad considering I wear a bra 365 days a year and comfort is the key!
How much do you spend a year on bras?
Is it worth buying more expensive bras or are cheapie ones just as good? Any recommendations?
How often do you replace your bras?
