Sometimes life happens and you leave things to the last minute but you still need to pretend that you totally planned ahead. It's okay. I buried myself in tabs to start the search for you! You could have new lingerie as fast as Amazon Prime can get it to you. In my head, there's two types of lingerie on Amazon:
- shockingly cheap (like under $10) wholesale stuff that may or may not actually resemble the images on the screen
- everything else
This article is about the second category because I can't confidently send you to anything in the first, for a variety of reasons. So what's in there?
Maison Close has an amazing collection and a significant amount of it is available on Amazon.
Maison Close Jardin Imperial Balconette Bra ($108.75 - $160.00, 32B - 36D)
Maison Close Jardin Imperial Garter Belt ($130, S - XL)
Maison Close Jardin Imperial Panty ($76.50 - $115.00, S- XL)
Maison Close Jardin Imperial Harness For Panty ($37.98 - $60.00, L - XL)
I love the framing effect of the sling styling and this orchid print is so dreamy, especially in sheer layers.
Calvin Klein Ck Black Spacer Sling Balconnet Bra ($20.45 - $89.91, 32A - 38C)
One of my favorite things about buying black lingerie is that you can match it with other black lingerie and make it work as a matching set. The power of a bra is magnified by 10 if worn with matching underwear, even if the underwear doesn't look that impressive on its own.
Only Hearts Whisper Sweet Nothings Coucou Bralette ($49.99 - $87.40 , S - L)
When I bought this bra a number of years ago, it was the most comfortable underwire bra I'd ever worn. And then I put in the washing machine because I didn't know any better and it got fucked up and didn't feel good anymore. Don't do that.
Betsey Johnson Women's Eyelet-Lace Three-Section Foam Demi Bra ($19.20 - $48.00, 30C - 36DD)
This detailed longline looks perfect for intimidating the fuck out of someone.
Gossard Embroidery VIP Longline Plunge Bra ($73, 30D - 38E)
This ornately detailed set comes in a wide range of colors and sizes.
Panache Women's Clara Balconette Lace Bra ($27.71 - $77.04, 30D - 40J)
One time I went to an all-girl play party and was, inexplicably, pretty much the only person who planned a lingerie outfit. Admittedly, my prioritization of lingerie is probably not typical. The only other attendee whose lingerie I noticed was wearing this set.
L'Agent by Agent Provocateur Vanesa Demi Bra ($49.95 - $92.00, 32A - 36E)
I want to put this print on wrapping paper and give cute things wrapped in it to my closest friends.
Elomi Plus Size Maya Underwire Plunge Bra With Stretch Lace ($44.95 - $66.00, 32H - 46DD)
The geometric pattern of this lace is really intriguing and despite my all-black collection, I'm actually a sucker for pale pink.
DKNY Sheer Lace Balconette Bra ($19.95 - $106.29, 32B - 38D)
DKNY Sheer Lace Bikini ($18.00 - $24.30, S - XL)
DKNY Women's Sheer Lace Garter Co-Pant ($9.99 - $39.00, S - XL)
Chromat is an absolute legend.
Chromat Women's X Uniwire Bra ($128.71 - $180.94, 32B - 36C)
I'm still not over black straps + mesh paneling.
Elomi Plus Size Sachi Strappy Underwire Plunge Bra ($62 - $64, 32GG - 46DD)
A rare red bra that's not made out of lace but still has a pattern.
L'Agent by Agent Provocateur Odessa Demi Bra ($49.50 - $99.90, 32B - 36DD)
It's kind of hard to find not-lacy, not-boring bras on Amazon that are also not black but I think this bright pink one is pretty cute.
Betsey Johnson Textured Mesh Plunging Push up Bra ($5.29 - $48.00, 30C - 36DD)
This bra seems well-suited for layering with other pieces.
Only Hearts Womens Whisper Cropped Underwire Bra ($79, S - L)
Notes to keep in mind while shopping for lingerie on Amazon:
- Some size/color combinations of a given item may not be available through Amazon Prime, even if others are.
- Matching underwear, if available, will often exist in multiple different listings from different retailers or in different colors. I can't link to all of them, so if you're interested, check the recommended items at the bottom of the bra's listing or try searching for the name of the bra without the bra-related words (for example, "DKNY Women's Classic Lace Longline Demi" --> "DKNY Women's Classic Lace").
- The price for a given item can be listed as a huge range (like "$19.95 - $106.29") because there will be one size/color combination that is super on sale and another size/color combination that's way jacked up for whatever reason. The price you'll end up paying for most sizes will probably be somewhere in the middle.
