Gisele honed her lingerie skills with Victoria’s Secret and now the supermodel is putting those skills to good use promoting her own Gisele Bündchen Intimates line.

If you’re going to take over the prestigious title of “The Body,” you better have the goods to back it up. Heidi proved her prowess by becoming the most well-known Victoria’s Secret model of all time. Plus, the German supermodel launched her own line of lingerie, Heidi Klum Intimates, to ensure her lingerie legacy would continue.

Dita Von Teese
When you’re a burlesque dancer, you’re bound to know a little something about lingerie. Dita definitely fits the bill, not only modeling sexy lingerie in her shows, but fashioning retro pieces via her own collaborations.

Along with posing for brands like Agent Provocateur, Naomi decided to jump into the fray by launching her own lingerie collection. The supermodel’s limited-edition offering with Italian brand Yamamay for the holidays is surprisingly affordable, ranging from just $32 to $65. And who better to model for the campaign than its namesake?

She’s been a Guess girl and modeled for the Victoria’s Secret catalog. That’s all the proof we need to bestow the sexiest lingerie model title on Kate. Ironically, the booker for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was once quoted as saying she would never use the voluptuous model to represent the brand on the runway and that Kate was “too obvious” a choice. Clearly, it’s Victoria’s Secret’s loss.

It’s no wonder why Eva’s on this list. Her Wonderbra Hello Boys campaign back in 1994 featured a truly distracting billboard and was even voted the most iconic advertising image of all time in the U.K.

Erin has been helping make Victoria’s Secret sexy for several years now. The Illinois native has been an Angel since 2011 and has split her time pretty evenly between the catwalk and the pages of the lingerie brand’s catalogs. Despite constantly being in her underwear, Erin prefers when guys want their women naked.
Frederique van der Wal
Frederique had a pretty amazing career, modeling for big brands like Revlon and Guess along with appearing in top magazines like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. But it’s her repeated role for Victoria’s Secret in the 90s that earns her a place on our lingerie list.
Rosie turned heads as one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels before debuting her own lingerie line called Rosie for Autograph in 2012. Want proof that she’s one of the best to ever slip on a bra and panties? The model even owns a cardboard cut-out of herself sporting lingerie.

While she’s been the face of Valentino and Christian Dior, Stephanie was one of the models that helped build Victoria’s Secret into the juggernaut it is today. The model signed with the then burgeoning brand in 1992 and touted its lingerie until 1999.
The original pinup queen was frequently captured in a variety of racy lingerie back in the 50s. With her signature jet black hair, blunt bangs and blue eyes, we think she would more than hold her own in today’s sultry climate.
Petra became the face and the body for lingerie line Ultimo earlier this year. What makes her intimate foray all the more impressive is that she dared to share the unretouched images with British Vogue.

When you’ve strutted your stuff in lingerie and high heels down the runway 16 times for Victoria’s Secret, you automatically receive icon status. Any questions?
Perhaps nobody is more synonymous with Victoria’s Secret currently than Alessandra. Sure, she’s got her ále by Alessandra clothing line and has appeared in a bunch of other campaigns, but she’ll always be an Angel to us.
What would modern-day La Perla be like without Natasha? Thankfully, we won’t have to answer that question any time soon since the model has graced the lingerie line’s ads season after season. And we’re not complaining.

Jasmine recently heated things up with boyfriend Tobias Sorensen for Calvin Klein's Eternity fragrance campaign, but she’s no stranger to spicy shoots. The recently appointed Angel has sizzled for the Victoria’s Secret catalog, not to mention rocking the runway for the brand.
Rebecca is best known nowadays for her acting roles, especially her revealing portrayal of Mystique. But let’s not forget that the former model originally rose to fame as a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
The South African stunner has been flexing her Angel wings for several years. Candice even had the honor of sporting the Fantasy Bra for the 2013 edition of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
From Estée Lauder to Balmain, Joan has had a pretty varied modeling career. Despite all those accolades, she’s probably best known for her ongoing gig with Victoria’s Secret. When you look this good in lingerie, it’s not surprising it becomes your trademark.
Irina’s list of lingerie credits is pretty extensive, which must mean the Russian model is doing something right. You can catch her striking a sultry pose for brands like Twin-Set, La Clover and Intimissimi.

She may have recently retired from Victoria’s Secret, but Doutzen’s place in the lingerie hall of fame is secure. Especially since she’s still modeling undergarments for brands like H&M.

Even though there was a lot of hoopla about her omission from this year’s show, Jourdan is a Victoria’s Secret institution. Who can forget her grand ringmaster getup from 2013 or this sparkling ensemble from last year?
Not only does Liu dazzle in lingerie for Victoria’s Secret, but the model has also represented for La Perla. She even did a lingerie-themed spread for Numéro China.

If you looked up the word lingerie in the dictionary, we swear you’d see a pic of Miranda. The Aussie native has flaunted her curves for everything from Victoria’s Secret to Wonderbra.

Sui has been a mainstay on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk since 2011 and her outfits are some of the most intricate ever to grace the runway. Take the baby blue look she modeled in 2014 complete with an elaborately embroidered robe and let’s not forget her fierce feathered creation from 2013.
Bar is obviously a lingerie expert, judging by the fact that she’s just been tapped by Agent Provocateur for its latest campaign. She’s also appeared in lingerie for Passionata.

Another model turned actress, Brooklyn made a name for herself as a swimsuit model in Sports Illustrated. But it’s her turn in lingerie for brands like La Senza that lands her a spot here.

Lara was rocking her Calvins long before posing with Justin Bieber in those now infamous ads from earlier this year. She’s not only hawked Calvin Klein underwear — Lara’s also modeled pieces for Eres and H&M.
