Victoria's Secret Model Sara Sampaio Reveals Her Lingerie Secrets

Victoria's Secret Model Sara Sampaio Reveals Her Lingerie Secrets

She's the Portuguese model who hates spanx and loves pizza...


On her first bra...

‘I was late to lingerie. I bought my first bra at 16. I went to a local store in Portugal with my mum and grandma and chose a fabric bra. It was really uncomfortable.’

On her go-to lingerie...

‘Lingerie is the little thing that no one sees but it 
gives you confidence. Matching sets make me feel sexy. Ninety five per cent of my lingerie is black. I only go for nude if I’m wearing something white on top.’ 

On red carpet undies...

‘I’ve never worn Spanx. I don’t need them. I haven’t even seen a pair in real life. On the red carpet if it’s all about the dress I’ll go braless and wear a nude thong.’ 



On looking sexy...

‘For me, looking sexy means I have to feel good. A lingerie set should mould to your body. I love feminine lace styles so I’m obsessed with the Victoria’s Secret designer collection. It’s so delicate.’ 

On a guys idea of what's sexy...

‘What guys find sexy varies from person to person. They 
love red lingerie and something that gives a lift. And they like something that’s easy to take off.’ 



On laundry... 

‘I’m very lazy when it comes to taking care of my underwear. I should hand wash it all but I can’t be bothered. So instead, I keep ruining stuff by putting it in the washing machine.’

On underwear #selfies...

'When posing in lingerie I suck everything in and pop my hip out a little bit. If you lie on your side and draw one knee in a bit it makes you look more curvalicious.’

Morning!!! :) @victoriassecret @guyaroch @thelionsny

On training to get a Victoria's Secret Angel body...

‘I try and avoid cardio because it makes me lose a lot 
of weight. Instead I do resistance training, model fit workouts and ballet. I grew up with a Mediterranean diet so I like clean, simple food. But if there’s pizza on 
a menu I always end up ordering it. I can’t resist it.’
