So the time has come when you want some new sexy lingerie for a special occasion. You just love the feel of the silk in your fingers and against your skin; your partner loves the cut of the panties and the suspenders that are attached. It feels like luxury goods and when you look at the price tag it seems like one too. So why when you can go to Primark and get a basic pair of cotton briefs does quality lingerie cost so much.
The best way to go through this is to break it down into component parts:
Firstly there is the material; when we are looking at the quality we like to feel against our skin when wearing a nice set of lingerie we know we need to be using high quality fabrics. One of the most desirable fabrics we could use would be silk, silk has everything we need; it’s strong and incredible to feel but it takes time to work with and is expensive to buy. Silk can cost from £300 to £1000 for a 50yard roll and this cost will obviously be passed down the line to the end buyer.
Another popular material for lingerie whether it be the whole garment or just a part of it is cotton. Cotton isn’t the most expensive of fabrics but it also isn’t cheap if you want to purchase fabric that has a good feel, is washable and absorbent. If you want to go another step and have cotton that is organically grown then that will add circa 30% more to the cost.
Man has taken some natural fibres and produced their own synthetic versions which can be eco-friendly, moisture wicking, easy to wash and dry, stretchy, shape-holding and super soft. But all these fabrics need to be developed over years and once they are produced the research will continue to ensure the fabrics continue to develop for years to come.
One material that can form the basis of a garment or just used to embellish an item is lace. Lace can be the most expensive material used on an item of lingerie, especially if it is fine lace. As we are talking lingerie here the lace has to be relatively fine and as such it will be pricey. Lace can cost from £1 a yard for a basic piece to £75 a yard.
So we have the material for our basic garment and then we need to add the pattern, if there is one. The print needs to be designed, then the design put on the print machine and then the run made. If the pattern is bespoke then that process will be costly for just a few garments. Some items will have the pattern actually woven into the material which will make it a lengthier process in itself.
If you are buying from a smaller company then they will be buying their fabric in smaller amounts and not getting the savings that are associated with bulk buying. This extra price you will have to pay is one of the extra costs associated with more unique garments.
To add to these basic costs we have other items that make up a piece of lingerie so things like buttons, elastic, labels, zips, hooks, binding, loops, bows, ribbons, chains etc. etc. When you think about it there are many components involved when you make up an item of lingerie.
So now you have everything you need to make the garment but now you actually have to make it.
Of course there is the actual making of the lingerie which involves cutting, sewing, finishing and adding the beading and embellishments. Most of this is taken for granted and a lot of it will be done by machine but the machines have still got to be bought, operated and maintained. If you are buying a more top end piece of lingerie then a lot of the stitching and finishing touches will be done by hand and this increases the cost and the time taken to produce the item.
Of course the company cannot make just one size of bra or panties they have to make a range even though some of them won’t be bought as much as the more common sizes. Of course with bras yu don’t only have the measurement around the chest but the cup size so you may have 34C and 34B etc.
So the company has produced the finished lingerie item. It is looking great and will feel a million dollars when it is worn. But there are still so many costs to come before it gets in your shopping bag. The building it was made in will have rents and taxes to pay on top of wages and raw materials. They will also pay for power and light.
The lingerie then has to be packaged in packaging that has been designed and branded. Once packaged who will buy it from the company. The company may well sell direct through a website or a shop but most times they will sell through third party shops and outlets. These people will have all the cost that we have seen above like power, staff wages and rents.
These people will not know about your product without exposure through marketing and merchandising. This involves professional marketers and photographers, salesmen and brand experts, models and maybe celebrity endorsements.
It may be you go to trade shows to sell your produce but this involves travel expenses, hotel rooms, stands and banners. There is no route to market that won’t involve high costs. A single page in a good magazine could set you back £100,000.
Many goods are sold online these days and a good ecommerce website will cost many tens of thousands of pounds and all of this and all of the above doesn’t account for profit. Noone above works for nothing and the producers and retailers want to make a profit for themselves or their shareholders.
So when you think about it, paying £50 or even £100 for a good pair or knickers or a good, well fitted bra is a small price to pay for comfort, sex appeal and a little piece of luxury.

Most people, mainly men, think that sexy lingerie is for the benefit of men but that really isn’t the case. Sure men like to look at women wearing sexy lingerie but women have to wear these garments 24/7 so it needs to be functional as well as look good.

Years ago women wore corsets and the like to make them look a certain way and these days you can do that too even with sexy underwear. So instead of the item of lingerie looking cumbersome they can still look sexy and also have figure improving details like push up bras, lycra to hold in a non-flat stomach. So their figure is enhanced and she looks sexy and feels even better.
So sexy lingerie is the go to underwear for women they can enhance their assets, feel comfortable and confident and turn on their men as well. What more could they wish for.

You’ll find an enormous range of fantastic fantasy designs here to suit all tastes and budgets, opening up the world of sexy lingerie to women and men all over the world.
Whether you’re looking for a little something to surprise a loved one on a special day or adding a bit of sexy spice to the bedroom everyone will find an ensemble that will arouse and excite.
The decision by Le Beau Lingerie’s creator and managing director Andrew Brown to open up his virtual retail doors to the public back in 2007 indicated a recognition and appreciation of the fact that women and women everywhere deserved to be able to buy high quality, inexpensive sexy lingerie from the comfort of their homes.
This realization and understanding of what people want from a lingerie store has seen the company go from strength to strength, building up a huge and ever expanding database of satisfied customers that keep on coming back – back for the great range, the great prices and, above all, the great service that lies at the heart of the Le Beau ethos.
This results in the unique opportunity for customers to purchase high quality sexy lingerie without having to accept the unfeasible high mark ups prices that many websites choose to burden people with
Le Beau offer you this without the potential pitfalls and discomfort that many of us feel even browsing in these stores, let alone summoning up the courage to take something to the counter.
OK, time for a quick Quiz:
1) Ladies, do you want to be hassled by emaciated, patronizing sales staff while you’re trying to decide what to buy for a sexy evening in?
2) Guys, do you want to be bothered by shop girls as you awkwardly wander around the store, looking for something for your special lady even though you’ve been desperately attempting to avoid eye contact?
Not even those with the most masochistic of inclinations would answer yes – though if that’s your thing the Le Beau’s wardrobe extends to your needs.
Okay, for those of you not traumatized by the prospect of buying your sexy lingerie at a store, there’s still the simple fact that retail establishments don’t have the space available within their pink-painted walls to show off the phenomenal range of sexy lingerie that Le Beau has to offer. To do this a retail stores would have to be enormous – and yet I doubt there are few things less sexy than buying your lingerie from an aircraft hangar at the back end of an industrial estate… except perhaps Susan Boyle in a tank top… just a tank top.
Instead you are forced to choose from a meager selection of items of inadequate quality in limited sizes. If there’s one thing that consumers are no longer willing to accept, it is a lack of options.
And while retail stores may provide a couple of extra outfits for special days such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day and, really quite disturbingly, Mother’s Day, most people tend to have fantasies that depend more upon their mood and not upon a calendar.
Scheduling your sexy fun doesn’t really seem to be all that fun or sexy.
Thankfully, Le Beau is here to help.
Instead of enduring such as ordeal why not relax at home, free from harassment and irritation, a glass of wine or beer in hand, making your choices from the extensive and enticing range, safe in the knowledge that the items that Le Beau send swiftly to your door will provide thrills beyond your wildest expectations.
The proof is in the pudding however, so why not visit the fine people at Le Beau – you won’t be disappointed.
