The Victoria’s Secret Semi Annual sale only happens twice a year–once in June and once in December–and when it comes along, you’d better have your wallets ready. The epic event features their bestselling bras starting at just $9.99 and panties starting at $3.99, as well as 40%-50% off accessories, free shipping and tons more deals.
But the best items won’t stay in stock for long, and since we don’t want you to miss out when the event returns this June, we’ve mapped out everything you need to know now:
When Is The Sale?
The first Victoria’s Secret Semi Annual sale of the year happens in the first week of June. In 2016, the sale started on Tuesday, June 7. In 2017, the event began on Monday, June 5. In 2018, the sale started on Monday, June 4. A rep for Victoria’s Secret could not confirm the date of the 2019 sale, but our shopping sleuths are predicting that it will go live on or around Monday, June 3, 2019.
Psst–perk alert: Angel Credit Card holders get access to the sale one day early.
TOMORROW: use your Angel Credit Card to shop the #VSSemiAnnualSale early! Save on bras, beauty & more in select 🇺🇸 stores only, from 7-10 am local time on 6.4. https://t.co/fVkx18Bdwf pic.twitter.com/HXEsXSqKPp

What Is The Semi Annual Sale?
Victoria’s Secret always has a pretty extensive sale section, so what’s different about the bi-yearly sale? This twice annual event features all categories–bras, leggings, underwear, tanks, beauty and more–for 40-60% off. That’s a substantial discount across store and online inventory, and is definitely the brand’s best promotion that they run. The sale features Pink, Victoria Sport, and Beauty brands. No word yet whether the recently re-launched Swim styles will be included (we bet that it will!).
Is Shipping Free?
The store usually provides a free shipping code on orders over $50 or $100 (ie. FREESHIP50 or FREESHIP100). They have also been known to offer free shipping over $100, no code required. Unfortunately, this means that you’ll probably have to pony up for shipping on orders under $50. Womp.
When Does The Sale End?
The sale typically lasts around fifteen days. In 2018, the sale ran from June 4-June 18. You can expect to have two full weeks to shop the event–but don’t push your luck much further than that. And the best stuff is usually gone within the first week.
What Are The Best Items To Shop?
If you shop Victoria’s Secret throughout the year, you know which items you can’t live without–say, their sexy seamless bras or flattering Victoria Sport leggings. So, you’ll want to know if some of the items you shop regularly are worth waiting from now until June to shop. Here’s a run down of the categories and prices you can expect when the sale goes live:

Push-Up Bras For $14.99
The lingerie juggernaut will put what they’re known for–super-sexy push-up wire bras–on sale during the event. It’s what we all came for! In 2017, the brand put their super-sexy Unlined Uplift Bra on sale for $14.99, down from $39.50. In 2018, the Push-Up Plunge Bra was just $14.99, down from $36.50. They won’t put every push-up style on sale, just a select few.
Underwear For $3.99
The Semi Annual Sale is one of those epic, fill-your-cart-to-the-brim kind of events. The underwear sale is where it’s at. Stock up–and we mean stock up–on undies for as little as $3.99. Last year, they had the Lacy Sexy Shortie on sale for $9.99, down from $22.50. In 2017, the Lace-trim Cheeky Panty was $7.99, down from $12.50. Here’s roughly what the pricing looks like for underwear:
Thong Panty: $3.99
Bikini Panty: $3.99
Hiphugger Boy Shorts: $3.99
Cheekini Panty: $7.99
Lace Thongs: $7.99
Lace Cheeky and Sexy Shortie: $9.99
Victoria Sport Leggings For $24.99
After bras and underwear, this sale has become increasingly all about their active brand Victoria’s Sport, and more specifically their super-flattering leggings.
Last year, the Victoria Sport Knockout was $29.99, down from $69.50, and the Everywhere Capri was $24.99, down from $39.50. In 2017, they blessed us with the Knockout Pocket Capri for $29.99, down from $66.50, and Anytime Cotton Ribbed Leggings for $19.98, down from $44.50. Long story short, you can expect leggings for around $20-$30, marked down from $50-$70.
Other Bra Styles For $9.99
Their bralettes, wire-free bras, unlined bras, triangle bras and sports bras will be marked down as low as $9.99, if history tells us anything. In 2017, their Lace Triangle Bra was $9.99, down from $20 and the Scoopneck Bralette was $9.99, down from $20. In 2018, their Victoria Sport Women’s Logo Mesh Sport Bra was $9.99 and Chantilly Lace Bralette was $9.99, down from $24.50. Sexy!
Tanks for $9.99
Last year, they had a basic Bow-Back Tank for $9.99 and Drape-Back Muscle Tank for $14.99, down from $24.50, both from Victoria Sport.
In December 2018, they marked Satin PJs down generously to $34.99, from $89.50. That was during holiday-time, so silk pajamas might have been a better promotion at that time than, say, the start of summer. But their PJs are gorgeous and great for things like bridal parties, so we thought we’d highlight it here!
