“Feeling ‘sexy’ is very difficult to explain for me; I’ve spent most of my adult life in a difficult relationship with my body. But the times I’ve felt the best are drinking wine with my boyfriend on our Italian villa’s balcony, planning dinner while laying in each other’s laps or Sunday brunch with the person I love.” – Charlotte, 24, London
2.With the right underwear
“It’s cliché, but I feel my sexiest when my boobs look great. I have an E cup, so frothy bits of lace don’t do it for me. But a balconette push-up bra with lace overlay? Count me in and turn me on. There’s also something about crotchless underwear that really gets me in the mood.” – Manon, 26, Leicester
4.In the moment
“I don’t often think about my body in terms of being sexy or unsexy, other than when I’m in the throes of passion. It’s in those moments that I really feel sexy: powerful, in control and doing something that I know makes me – and someone else – feel good.
5.In my own skin
“To me, sexy isn’t about dressing up for someone – it’s about feeling calm and comfortable in my own skin. I probably feel sexiest in my high-leg, full coverage underwear and my fluffy dressing gown.” – Jasmin, 26, Epping
