Confidence-boosting high street lingerie that is both sexy and flattering

Look great - and feel even better!

In the market for some new lingerie? Perhaps you’re thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day, or maybe you're in need of an underwear drawer revamp in 2020.

Either way, the high street has some great lingerie sets at the moment that are not only sexy, but flattering, too.

After all, there’s no point buying a bra that looks great on the rail, but doesn’t make you feel good when you’re in it.

M&S in particular has upped its underwear game this year - alongside its active wear and spring/summer collections - and we're very impressed.

We've rounded up some of our favourite pieces across a variety of brands.

Chantelle Festivite Plunge T-Shirt Bra

When you think of a humble T-shirt bra, sexiness doesn’t usually spring to mind. But this beautiful T-shirt plunge bra has proved us wrong. This piece has a wonderfully vintage and super feminine feel to it – designed with figure flattering in mind. The extra lace on the straps helps with support and creates an uplifting shape.

The popular product features leaf embroidery and bow detailing – both of which give this piece extra oomph. It’s also available in 10 different shades – our favourites are the navy and aubergine.

Marks & Spencer Smoothing Padded Set

Marks & Spencer Smoothing Padded Set

£25, Marks & Spencer The seamless fabric creates an all-over smoothing effect for this bra and knicker set. Both are designed to be worn under tighter pieces of clothing - so there's no need to worry about VBLs (visible bra lines) or VPLs (visible pant lines). Not only is this set functional, but it’s sexy too. It comes in three luxurious colours - an alabaster creamy nude, jet black and khaki green. The lacy knickers are also available in a high-waisted shape, which is flattering on hips and makes your waist look smaller.
