Hey sexy pants
With Valentine's Day imminent, we hunted down the sexiest, slinkiest new lingerie around. Bridget Jones enormo-pants, be gone!
Underwear drawer looking grey and dingier than a wet Wednesday in February? We highly recommend you bin the fraying granny pants and buy this slinky lot instead. Even better, with Valentine’s Day approaching, you could get your significant other – or secret lover (hey, we’re not here to judge) – to treat you. Here’s our super-sexy edit of the best of the high street, designer and online.
We love Rihanna but never thought we’d wear her pants, quite frankly. But her Savage X Fenty line has some surprisingly cute options, such as this chambray and chiffon bralette (£44), with matching knickers (£30). Full marks for inclusive sizing and a diverse range of models – nice work, RiRi.
If you’re going to splash out on designer smalls, it’s always gotta be Stella. This bra top (£75) cleverly manages to be a little bit sporty and a little bit sexy, with matching knickers for £50. Spendy but you’re worth it, obvs.
Is there anything & Other Stories can’t do? Its lingerie comes in fabulously confident colour combos that you just don’t see anywhere else. Case in point – this orange, brown and black bra(£29) which shouldn’t work but, well, just does. There are matching high-waisted pants too (£23).
Cult Dutch indie brand Love Stories is brilliant for smaller-busted women, with its focus on comfort and zero underwiring promising “a holiday for your boobs”. There’s no need to spell out your intentions in this racy leopard number (60 Euros) and, because they’re into very modern mismatching, there’s a selection of knickers to wear with it.
OK, this is for the last of the big spenders. Super-luxe brand Coco de Mer have collaborated with the V&A (strange but true) and the results are really rather beautiful. This teal bird and palm tree-print, Art Deco-inspired bra is – eeek! – £195, with matching kecksfor £125.
John Lewis’s Modern Rarity in-house brand is known for its knitwear and coats but they do some rather nice scanties too. We love this unusual delicate print bra (£40) and underwear (£18) set.
Don’t forget good ol’ M&S. For special occasion scanties, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s line for Autograph should be your first port of call (tip – her nightwear is excellent too). This floral full-cup bra(£29.50) is pretty but will also keep you scaffolded into place too.
