Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but at Sassy we think lingerie’s definitely a close second. Make sure you’re dressed to impress on your wedding night with the best lingerie Hong Kong has to offer below and if you decide to indulge your darkest fantasies, we’ll never tell. If you’re a practical gal, grab some simple, classy threads at Intimissimi or step things up a notch with Showtime Lingerie’s promiscuous collection!
There’s a reason Agent Provocateur is a name that every woman recognises and it’s got a lot to do with their trend-setting designs and elegant accenting. Whether you want some of their provocative silk cut-out briefs from their honeymoon-ready Belle de Nuit collection or their sweeter cream and ivory bridal lingerie, there’s something for everyone (even a series of bejeweled whips and masks for the part-time dominatrix). If you don’t know where to begin, you’re in luck-Agent Provocateur offers exclusive bridal fitting services to help you find the perfect lingerie sets for your wedding and honeymoon, all with a complimentary gift and a glass of champagne in hand.

For the international girl constantly on the go, Avec Amour should be your first port of call. Run by one of our sister site’s That Mama Tara Lai, she’s definitely filled the space where luxury lingerie boutiques should be with her global range of products from Mimi Holliday and Maison Close (just to name a few!). The boutique collaborates with one of our favourite waxing salons, the Nude Beautique of Waxing (which we’ve reviewed here), and has two treatments rooms that offer Brazilian waxes so you can get busy with confidence.

As far as high quality lingerie goes, La Perla’s something of a legend in the industry. Made only from the finest silk and lace, these Italian virtuosos have created an exclusive double collection of bridal lingerie for your special day, appropriately called ‘The Day’ and ‘The Honeymoon’. You’ll almost want to show off your ivory bridal lingerie as you strut down the aisle with their incredible range of modern and classic pieces, but don’t worry, there’ll be time for that with their slinkier honeymoon collection. La Perla’s got you covered for both occasions-at least, where it counts.

Rigby and Peller
Rigby and Peller are so good at what they do that Her Royal Highness has actually deemed them the royal intimates provider and the underwear of England, if you will! If Rigby and Peller’s good enough for the Queen, then the British lingerie specialists should just about do for your wedding day with their beautiful selection of custom-fitted lingerie sets. Stocking only the best of the best, brands like Prima Donna and Andrew Saran are no strangers here and we actually sent one of our Sassy girls Sabrina over for a professional bra fitting with the quirky cool Queen of intimates June Kenton. Unsurprisingly, Sabrina fell in love in her interview here and we’re sure you brides-to-be will too.
Royalty comes with a royal price tag, but it’s sure worth the money. Rigby and Peller intimates are priced between $1,000-1,500.
