Celebs are putting bondage-style undies back in the spotlight, but how comfortable are they?

STRAP into this season’s sexiest lingerie, with criss-cross bras and double band thongs all the rage.

While extrovert A-listers Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have long been fans of cut-out undies, now Noel Gallagher’s daughter Anais, 20, is fronting a racy collection for Bluebella.

Sales of strappy lingerie have risen 36 per cent so far this month, according to Lovethesales.com, and online stores including Asos and Boohoo have released raunchy ranges. But are you cut-out for strappy styles?

Sarah Harrison asked model Maria Gardner, 26, from Hertfordshire, to rate revealing looks out of ten for comfort and style.

Turquoise bra, £20, thong, £10, both Asos: 10/10

“I absolutely LOVE this set. I wasn’t sure about the turquoise when I saw it on the rail but it’s so me.

"I love how glossy it is, it feels so nice to wear while also being sexy. This is definitely going on my shopping list.”

Light blue bodysuit, £17, Boohoo.com: 6/10

“Now this bodysuit would be so fun to wear with jeans on a night out.

"I thought the light-blue hue would wash me out but I feel great in it. It’s supportive, comfortable to wear and the price is amazing.”

Black cut-out floral bra, £30, briefs, £17, both Hunkemoller: 6/10

“This wasn’t easy to put on, but so, so worth it. I love the bra, it’s a perfect mix of feminine and sexy. The floral detailing is so pretty.

"But if I had my way the pants would have fewer straps as I don’t know how you could wear them under clothes – talk about VPL.”

Black bra, £34, thong, £14, both Bluebella: 8/10

“I am so shocked at how comfortable this is. I thought the cut-out straps would be uncomfortable but it’s soft and I feel supported.

"I am so pleased with the price too, it’s so reasonable for a set that looks this luxurious.”

Red lace detail body, £21.99, Femme Lux: 10/10

“This is my favourite, I absolutely love it.

"I love how it’s not as sheer as some of the other styles, which means I could wear this with jeans and a jacket in the evening too. The lace detailing is so flattering.”

Blush bra, £38, thong, £14, both Bluebella: 5/10

“I really wanted to like this but the embroidery on the bra cups just doesn’t sit right on me.

"I love the strappy detailing around the base of the bra, but the flowers on my bust would show through tops. You could only wear it in the bedroom.”

White lace bodysuit, £37, Hunkemoller: 3/10

“This is just too fussy for me. I’ve not minded the straps on the other sets, but this is just far too much.

"I don’t like the top at all but the lower part is so pretty, so it’s a shame.”

Bra, £14, thong, £8, belt, £10, all Asos; stockings, £9, Ann Summers: 7/10

“The lace is so soft. This is so lovely to wear and the colour is really flattering. I love the suspenders too.

"The metal detailing on the suspender belt and the bra make it look so much more expensive than it is.”
