Wacoal: The Princess Collection

I was staring with disbelief at a one piece swimsuit; I never laid eyes on a swimwear that glistens with varied precious stones almost all over it – ever before. Then my eyes shifted to a pair of two piece bikinis, both sparkle with colorful stones that are beautifully cut. I couldn’t resist but asked for the price. The one piece swimwear is 150 000 baht ($4870). Each piece that makes a two-piece bikini is worth not less than 20 000 baht ($650).

Each piece is worth above $4870


These royalty swim wears are from Wacoal designed by the Thai princess, Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana. Every inch a luxury of her designs are a reflection of haute couture.

There is nothing extra-ordinary with the designs except that the piece is detailed with expensive stones. Not only was I intrigued by the wealth that these creations show off, but also by the type of customers this designs target. Of course, the rich and the elite, the princesses. But just WHEN are they going to wear it? That baffles me.

The best part about this collection is that the Princess created it to support a charity work. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the National Cancer Institute.

I didn’t explore the Wacoal area of Siam Shopping Mall because I was looking for some new lingerie, nope. Instead, I accompanied Anny, a classmate from a weekend German class who works part-time as a PR person/presenter for the brand. I was glad I did. Stumbling upon the lingerie of Princess Sirivannavari was a beautiful thing.

  5. Wow, this is amazing, I'm so glad you shared it with us. The pieces are exquisite...and how interesting that they are swimsuits. If I could even dream of affording them, I can imagine donning these expensive and beautiful pieces out by a pool and just lavish in the luxury...because I can! :) This post has certainly made me dream of new pretty lingerie too! You and your friend both look beautiful.
