I can’t be the only person who fell in love at first sight with the lace and satin vintage-inspired bodysuits featured on the Dolce & Gabbana’s runway for the S/S 2010 show.
For a little while, I entertained the thought of buying one of my very own…but then I did a bit research and realized they cost a jaw-dropping (and utterly unaffordable) $1,195 each. So much for that fantasy, right?
Since then, I’ve been on the look-out for a knock-off version. A teddie that has the best elements of Dolce & Gabbana’s bodysuit–such as the bra-top, the wide waistband, the low-leg cut–but at a more realistic price.
To my surprise, I haven’t been able to find much of anything. Agent Provocateur’s Black Swan bodysuit and Trashy Lingerie’s Corazon Teddy come close, but even then, it’s not a perfect resemblance. And with prices of $490 and $220, respectively, neither one really counts as a “budget” bargain.
So what’s your opinion, my lovelies? Is Dolce & Gabbana worth the splurge? Are Agent Provocateur and Trashy Lingerie acceptable alternatives? Or should I just hang my head and admit defeat? I want to know what you think…so tell me in the comments!
