Rhian Sugden sizzles in top lingerie as she puts high street's sexy underwear to the test

SALES of sexy underwear have gone through the roof during the pandemic, with Ann Summers selling a pair of naughty crotchless knickers every TWO minutes throughout lockdown. 

What’s more, their customers can’t get enough of the padded plunge, especially in their sexy lace range and sales of thongs are up 17 per cent, overtaking practical fuller briefs. 

On average the lingerie brand is shifting 50,000 sets of underwear per month and have seen a huge demand for racier buys. 

A spokesperson for Ann Summers told The Sun: “The firm favourites are our thong and Brazilian cut knickers with an increase on the High-Cut styles of thong & high waisted up 459 per cent only.

"Crotchless underwear and bodices are currently our most searched lingerie style online at the moment.”

Interestingly, customers are turning their back on traditional sexy colours like black and red and favouring brighter, more colourful ranges and non-padded bralettes which can be worn as outerwear are also up 350 per cent. 

This weekend marks National Lingerie Day, and so, what better excuse to order some new luxury lacy and silk wears?

But if you’re stuck on what to buy fear not, we’ve got it covered.

Here, former page three girl and lingerie model Rhian Sugden, 34, from Manchester, is trying on the best buys on the high street and rating them out of five on sex appeal, price and practicality. 

She says: “My underwear collection has definitely increased during lockdown. I practically live and work in sexy underwear. 

“I have over 200 sets of underwear ranging from super sexy to the Bridget Jones comfies.

"Like most women, I prefer my comfier sets but every now and then it’s nice to dress up in something sexy and feel good. 

“To me, my underwear must haves are a black and a nude shirt bra, a pair of pull in knickers and a kinky thong.

"I would love to own a good strapless bra but I’m yet to find one which keeps mine up.”

Banded strappy cheeky panty in lipstick, £22.24, XS

Rhian says: “This looks really sexy on the hanger but it didn’t look good on as my boobs were bulging out of it.

"I don’t think it’s designed for a big bust as I’m wearing the biggest cup size available.

"I think it would look really sexy on smaller boobs though but sadly it didn’t work for me.” 

Rhian's rating: 2/5

Wolf and Whistle fuller bust wired balconette strapped body, £32,00, 34F, ASOS

Rhian says: “I love this brand because they do a fuller bust range and still manage to make it sexy.

"It can be quite hard finding sexy undies over a certain size but they’ve nailed it with this bodice.

"It’s reasonably priced, not frumpy and fits really well, it’s flattering and you could wear it underneath an outfit as well as in the bedroom. I love it.”

Rhian's rating: 4/5

Pour Moi glow wet look demi padded bra, £26, 32F

Pour Moi thong, £12, size 8 

Rhian says: “This set didn’t look that special on the hanger but looks great on. It’s more kinky than the others and super sexy.

"The bra fits really well and there’s no side boob. What’s more, it’s practical too and supportive.

"I could wear this everyday comfortably and look and feel great.” 

Rhian's rating: 3/5

Bravissimo fiesta bodice in neon coral, £54, 33F

 Rhian says: “I love this colour, it looks great on blondes and with a tan.

"It makes me feel sexy and summery.

"I love this one so much I’d wear it on the beach! I don’t want to take it off!

"It’s a little bit pricier than the other bodice but it’s especially designed for a fuller bust.”

Rhian's rating: 5/5

Rhian says: “You couldn’t do an underwear test without including a set from Marks and Sparks.

"I wasn’t sure about this one at first, compared to the others it didn’t look as special. But once I put it on I loved it.

"The colours are elegant and it’s sexy in a more subtle way. The bra gives me excellent cleavage too.” 

Rhian's rating: 4/5

Rhian says: “This set is a real show stopper.

"I love pink and look sizzling in this. What’s more, it’s such good value.

"The whole set is just £21! It’s also comfy and I could easily wear it under clothes too.”

Rhian's rating: 5/5

BLACK PVC Ann Summers, Tasha Teddy, Size M, £34.00

Rhian says: “This is definitely the kinkier out of the lot. It’s fun for dressing up in and you could definitely surprise your partner in it.

"But I struggled to fit my boobs in the smaller size and the medium was too big around my waist.

"For me, it didn’t work so well as I have big boobs on a small frame, but for others who are more in proportion I think it could work well and add a bit of spice to your sex life.”

Rhian's rating: 3/5

Rhian says: “This set is a bit pricer than the others but it really is beautiful.

"I felt a million dollars in this and loved the colour, it’s so unusual.

"People think you have to wear red or black or racier underwear but this set proves that’s not the case, the mint green colour is gorgeous and looks lovely on any hair colour and skin tone. Love it.”

Rhian's rating: 4/5
