Besides what Fred said, try local lingerie/adult novelty stores. We have stores like Adam and Eve here plus one called Priscilla McCalls. They always have stuff on sale in a bin or on a certain rack. A lot of stuff marked down to $10 or less that was more expensive at one time. Make contact with the manager and let them know what you are doing. They might be willing to work with you to make sure you get first pick on some things. Plus they might be willing to spread the word about you to their clients who might want to get their photos taken.

Maybe not bikinis/lingerie but for props try goodwill and other thrift stores they have a lot of items that make wonderful props.

Love their stuff but it's not cheap. The OP is looking for discount stuff.

Nice link. Didn't know about them. I too seem to go through this headache every year of having to restock my wardrobe.

Ross, Marshalls, TJMaxx. etc. You'd be surprised at the brands you can get there for a bit of nothing.

Victoria Secret always has some on sale/clearance, and then the sales are really great too.

Also, Target, very cheap, and very cute!

I also like Target, cheap, but certainly good enough quality to last for one shoot. Big variety too and what you don't use (tags still on) you can return with no problem. They have tons of swimsuits, sexy shorts, tank tops, etc. And really cheap.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

http://www.yandy.com/ (external link) has some really good deals. Also watch Fredericks of Hollywood for their store wide 50% off sales.

And finding a local shop is always helpful. I have built a great relationship with one by me and the owner discounts all my orders and even calls me when something comes in that she knows fits my style of shoots

Look on sites for their clearance. Someone mentioned wicked temptations. I've bought a bunch of stuff for my wife for $10 and under on their clearance section and have been very happy with it. I bought some stuff on eBay recently for around the same price, but it ended up being cheap Chinese stuff.

I was going to do the same thing, buy a bunch of inexpensive lingerie and let models choose what they wanted to shoot in and keep it. But my wife nixed that idea. Told me I wasn't buying lingerie for other women. Lol. I just have the model bring something they already have. It's usually something different and the size is right. I do however make recommendations of where they can buy stuff. I'm paying for my studio and equipment. The girl can at least show up with her own wardrobe unless it is something very specific.

Check the Le Petit Coquette blog. They let you know when there are couture lingerie sales. The quality is much better then novelty, and it looks it. Of course so is the price. But if you only check during sales and only buy at the best discounts, you can do very well.

Lousy question, but here goes anyway:

A couple of weeks ago, there was a spam advertiser who was replying to all these "where to find clothes" threads with their website of cheapo knockoff clothes. I wanted to look at it, since my wife's dance/cabaret troupe often needs a bunch of matching outfits that will be used for one routine or show and then stored indefinitely. I can't remember the site name, and it seems that all those spam/ad posts are removed now.

If anyone remembers, care to PM me the address? thanks. It was something like ___-luvers.com , I dunno.
