It only takes a glance at her impressive modeling résumé to see Alessandra Ambrosio knows a thing or two about lingerie and swimwear, so it was only fitting that cult German brand Lascana tapped her to appear in its newest campaign. I recently caught up with Ambrosio in Los Angeles during Lascana's first foray into the U.S., and she was more than willing to spill her best lingerie tips. First up on the docket? Her favorite bra trend right now, and she was quick to call out one style in particular.

"Lascana has these amazing bras that have beautiful lace details. You can wear [your blouse] a little bit open so you can have a peek [at the bra] because it's so beautiful," she told us. "The lace is gorgeous, so that is my favorite."

The night I interviewed her, Ambrosio was also wearing one of her other favorite lingerie trends: velvet corsets. "I love this incredible velvet corset that you can pair with whatever you want, like a skirt, denim pants, leather pants," she said. "Just put on a little jacket on top, and it looks gorgeous, super sexy, and gives you a nice shape."

I also asked Ambrosio about the three bra styles every woman should own. "One of the essentials should always be a neutral, no-show bra—something nice and smooth so you don't see anything under a white T-shirt," Ambrosio told us.

She also cited a practical strapless bra and a pretty lace version as two other essentials, but enough with the reading. Scroll down to see and shop the supermodel's top Lascana picks for yourself.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
