Looking for the best lingerie models in the world? Then this is the right place for you!
Ever since the invention of lingerie in the late 19th century, it has become one of the most important garments for a woman. Suiting their comfort and fashion needs, lingerie serves more purposes than we can think of.
Although it is sometimes confused with a swimsuit, they are vastly different. Lingerie are basically the undergarments, sleepwear and lightweight robes that women wear.
And contrary to popular beliefs, they are not only worn to seduce and please men.
The industry for lingerie is huge and it is an important part of the fashion scene. It is interesting that a woman looks more sensuous wearing a lingerie than when she is wearing a bikini, which shows more of her body, which basically proves that the length of a cloth is not linked with sexiness.
The femininity that oozes out of a woman when she is wearing a lingerie is what makes us go weak in the knees. Over the decades, we have seen some of the influential supermodels modelling lingerie for us.
Today, we take a look at some of them who made us drool over their lingerie self. So, here are the 10 hottest lingerie models in the world.
Kick-starting our list at number 10 is Chinese supermodel Liu Wen.
The New York Times has dubbed Wen as “China’s first bona fide supermodel”. She is the first Asian model to make it to Forbes magazine’s annual highest-paid models list.
When it comes to lingerie, Wen has the distinction of being the first East Asian model to walk for Victoria’s Secret. Besides, this ethereal beauty has also modelled lingerie for La Perla and Numero China.
Dita Von Teese
Next up at number 9 on our list comes American burlesque dancer, vedette, model, costume designer, singer, actress and entrepreneur Dita Von Teese.
Being one of the key figures in re-popularizing burlesque performances and bringing back focus to vintage fetish, Teese has this retro aura in her, which makes her look like a goddess when she models lingerie.
Number 6 on the list is supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Aside from being one of the best supermodels of all time, legendary Naomi Campbell is unsurprisingly considered as one of the hottest lingerie models, with labels such as Agent Provocateur and Yamamay being among those brands that tapped her as their brand ambassador.
Frederique van der Wal
Number 7 on our list comes Dutch model Frederique van der Wal.
Having the quintessential face of a model, this bombshell has a body which can put anybody to shame.
With a face to die for along with her hourglass body, a combination, which at that time was unseen in the modelling world, Wal was one of the most striking lingerie models of the 1990s. Apart from modelling for Vogue and Cosmopolitan, her lingerie work for Victoria’s Secret gave the world some iconic shots to be desired for eternity.
Brazilian supermodel and actress Adriana Lima takes the 6th spot on our list of 10 hottest lingerie models in the world.
One of the highest-paid models in the globe, Lima also has the distinction of being the longest-running model for Victoria’s Secret, having been modelling for them since 1999.
Being named as the “Most Valuable Victoria’s Secret Angel” in 2017, she is also one of only two models in the world to have modelled the “Fantasy Bra” by Victoria’s Secret thrice, whose value is up to $5,000,000.
Breaking into the top 5 of our list is American model and body activist Ashley Graham.
This plus-size beauty is considered one of the most influential models of contemporary times, inspiring millions of women to accept the body they have.
From lecturing at high schools to giving Ted Talks regarding body acceptance and body image, Graham also has stated why it is wrong to call her and models like her plus-size, since it separates them from other models.
She has also designed a lingerie line for Canadian clothing retailer Addition Elle. Sensuousness is an understatement when she dons a lingerie.
What do you think about the plusize Lingerie model?
American model Tara Lynn comes at number 4 on our list of 10 hottest lingerie models in the world.
Nicknamed “The Body”, this plus-size queen is one of the major covergirls for Elle. Besides, she has also shot for Vogue Italia and Glamour and has made sure that her work inspires women across the globe to accept their body.
One of her campaigns for Elle focussed on accepting the shape of a full-figured body. When this diva is shooting for lingerie, you are sure to drop dead from her sensuousness.
Entering the top 3 position on our list is British model Saffi Karina.
After being dropped from a modelling agency for being “too big”, Karina founded Curve Project London, which went on to become UK’s first plus-size modelling workshop. Looks like someone is biting their tongue now after this.
With an hourglass figure and a honey-touched complexion, Karina oozes sexuality in lingerie like no other, and something tells us that this woman will go a long way into becoming a force to be reckoned with.
This list is incomplete without the inclusion of the person at number 2. American model Bettie Page, who was one of the original pin-up girls came to pop culture like nothing the world had ever seen before.
With her deep blue eyes, jet black hair and trademark fringes, Page symbolised sexuality which was desired by men and women alike.
One of the pioneers who started the lingerie modelling, Page is who we owe our lingerie fashion sense to.
Unfortunately, this diva passed away in 2008 at the age of 85.
Numero uno on our list of 10 hottest lingerie models in the world comes Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
Having been the highest-paid model in the world for over 13 years now since 2004, she was listed as the 89th most powerful women in the world by Forbes in 2014.
An iconic lingerie model for Victoria’s Secret, she is what you call an artist with her body being nothing short of a masterpiece.
Having pioneered the horse walk, Bundchen carved a niche for herself and opened a whole new market for models who looked unconventional when she started.
No piece of lingerie can look costlier than when you put it on Bundchen.
So, there you have it! Let us know which iconic lingerie look resonated the most with you and which one of these ten beauties is your favourite in the comment section below. We love to hear back from you.
