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.’

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.’
