La Rouge Boutique versus Agent Provocateur

It’s the sensational v sensible debate.

Money is getting tighter but you have expensive tastes. Wouldn’t we all love to own this luxurious ensemble from Agent Provocateur?

It’s seductive but your bank manager would prefer sensible.

Sensational would mean spending £565 on this three piece ensemble of naughtiness.

Who wouldn’t look fabulous in this Alina babydoll from agentprovocateur.com. It’s £345 worth of wonderful illusion hiding bumps and lumps to look truly fabulous.

Team it with this delicate but bosom cradling bra and you can add £110.

The matching Alina briefs have french lace and frills but they will add £110 to your bill.

So although you are undoubtedly worth it and the money will have been well spent if it makes you feel even just a little bit fabulous – it might be worth taking a look at this online boutique

LaRougeBoutique.co.uk has something equally frivolous in red that will cost less than £60 for all three pieces.

The red Diamond stretch lace bra and waist enhancing briefs are £29.99 for the set and would look great under the baby doll.

Sensible enough to please your bank manager?
