2016 Holiday Lingerie Shopping Guides – Gifts Above $500

Disclosure: This article contains affiliate links.

The final Holiday Lingerie Shopping Guide is (finally) here, and this one is always my favorite to put together. At that $500 and beyond price point, where money is no object, you find some truly extraordinary, breathtaking lingerie. Here is where designers can throw caution to the wind and absolutely show off, sourcing the best silks, velvets, and laces in the world to make your intimate attire.

Some of the pieces below are bespoke or made-to-measure only…because why spend nearly a grand on lingerie unless you can be absolutely confident it fits? This the lingerie I dream about, the lingerie I coo over during market season when I’m finally able to see it in person, and I’m both envious and ecstatic when I hear one of my readers has managed to add a piece or two to their wardrobe. If only we could all be so fortunate.

As in previous years, our $500 and Above Holiday Lingerie Shopping Guide completes this year’s lists. What was your favorite piece? Did you discover any brands you hadn’t heard of before? TLA is closing for the holidays soon, so if you don’t get a chance to come around again before January, please know that I wish you the very best of holiday seasons and that I can’t wait to see you in 2017.

Looking for the rest of our holiday lingerie shopping guides? You can find them under the category “holiday” here!

    What you definitely get at this price is sumptuous, amazing fabrics. I love the idea of wrapping my whole body in that Christine silk velvet robe. I also seriously covet a Sian Hoffman item not featured here – the spanking girdle. Of course the Murmur dress is right in my sweet spot too.

    This is the list I’ve been waiting for!! I won’t be able to afford anything on this list unless it goes on sale at some point, but it’s so fun to see what top-of-the-line truly looks like. I’ve been coveting some of these pieces for a while now, like the Savannah set from AP, the Karolina Lakowska set, the I.D. Sarrieri gown, and a few others on this list. Maybe I’ll be lucky and be able to find something for less from this list! I’m holding out for the AP sale coming up!

      Hey!!! It’s always worth checking The Outnet as they often have expensive brands (like Carine Gilson or I.D. Sarrieri) on sale. Gilt is good for brands like La Perla if you’re a member, and sometimes the clearance section at Nancy Meyer has a gem or two as well – especially if they’re doing an “extra percent off sale items” sale. And AP should be running their next big clearance in January, though it sounds like you already know that. At any rate, I hope you get something you love soon. :-)

        I’m not incredibly familiar with Net a Porter and The Outnet, so someone correct me if I’m wrong! But I think Net a Porter sales prices *usually* reach lower prices than they *generally* do after they get shifted over to The Outnet. The Outnet seems to hover around 50-60% off (more items are closer to 50%), whereas Net a Porter is at 70% off right now.

        If someone is hankering after an item or set especially, I’d recommend jumping on it before it leaves Net a Porter’s sale as they’ll get a better discount there. The Outnet is a good place to pick up the very few remnant pieces that they can’t seem to sell at 70-85%.
