Once again Victoria's secret has an over the top (no pun intended) new offering for the insanely rich.

5 million dollar offering

I'm not sure these garments are ever actually sold, are they?
I think they are just promotional.....but I could be wrong.

not sure if it would be marketed .. I would think it would have a very limited niche ... A very rich man with a trophy wife who was a former victoria's secret model being the parameters sort of narrows the marketing possiblities

A couple of years ago the previous gemstone-encrusted bras were on display at GIA Carlsbad.

Wonder why I'm never asked to model these things? 8) :lol:

Yup, strange things go on in the cold outbacks of this world and the devices resorted to attract women to such places.

After all, it was your good self who reminded us only so recently that, 'Diamonds are a gir'ls best friend' :lol:
