After the show, the bras are available for purchase, but no takers since its inception. The jewelers who supplied the precious stones dismantle them from the bras at the end of the season. Before you make plans to attend the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, you should know that the audience consists of only invited guests and holders of auctioned tickets worth over 10 thousand dollars. Which of these is your favorite fantasy bra and who do you think wore it best?
