To enjoy lavishness of wealth and comfort, getting all which money can buy

Etymology:

  • Luxury entails money that brings lavishness, comfort, extravagant life style and material things. But why the expression “lap of luxury”? Why not any other part? The reason is lap just does not mean front part of body from your waist to knees; it is considered a place of love and comfort as your mother’s lap. You feel relaxed and comfortable in someone’s lap. So in the “lap of luxury means to enjoy sumptuous life. Since both luxury and lap begin with “L”, a perfect alliteration to make it a catchy phrase.
