It's a different story when you're faced with flashing your hero pants to your partner though... super-tight, seamless and often in a washed-out shade off nude, they don't exactly scream sexy bedroom style.
Enter Gok Wan to save the day!
Creating his new collection of shapewear for Simply Be, Gok has designed some real bangers for AW13. Ahem.
"I've designed this collection to accentuate the best parts of any girls' body and keep her legs, tum, boobs and bum looking their best.
"It's all about getting it on and feeling sexy in seconds! All my favourites are in this collection, from the Slicker Knicker to the Sassy Slip – if you've got it, I say definitely flaunt it girls."
From classic houndstooth and pretty polka dot prints to bold colourways, the new underwear line joins Gok's coveted Banger Booster bra available online at Simplybe.co.uk. Prices start from £32, in sizes 8-‐32, A-‐G cup and back size 32-‐46.
