I want to buy myself some luxurious, indulgent, gorgeous underwear/lingerie. Recommendations?

I am specifically looking for a matching bra and panty set that I can wear under everyday clothes. The bra should be an actual supportive bra with underwires, not a triangle bra or a bralette or a cami. Nothing costumey, no big bows or feathers or any of that. Smaller embellishments are okay as long as they wouldn't look lumpy under a shirt or pants. Comfort is important, too. I want something that looks good, feels good, and is well-made.
I've been looking around but have been overwhelmed by choice. I've been to both La Perla and Agent Provocateur and wasn't blown away, and if I'm going to be spending that much on one bra I want it to be worth it.
My size is within the range of most clothing lines, and other than an underwire bra I have no special needs fit-wise. I've been professionally fitted for a bra within the past six months.
I do not have a strict budget, but I prefer to save money, and my expectations rise with cost. If I spend $50 on a pair of underwear it had better be the best thing that I have ever put on my butt. If I spend $100 it had better be twice as good as the $50 pair.
I'm open to different styles and looks. There are some high-end boutiques within driving distance but I would much rather shop online.
Any recommendations you have would be helpful, especially brand-specific ones. If there are brands or stores I should steer clear of, that would help me too.
