Elle Macpherson: I like slinky underwear

Elle Macpherson believes there is a place for a "retro" look in underwear, although she's never personally liked "big pants".

The Australian supermodel has been working on her lingerie line Intimates for over ten years. She's seen many trends come and go and believes the current penchant for old-school styling is here to stay for a while.

"Retro-style underwear is definitely a fashion statement and I have always borrowed from different eras in my designs. Corsetry has always been important to me in design but I think it's important not to compromise comfort for style. I have never been a fan of big pants though," she told British newspaper The Independent.

Elle Macpherson Intimates started life in 1990 and it's become vitally important for the model-and-designer that the firm has a broad appeal.

So, when the 47-year-old was pregnant she created a line of maternity lingerie and she's now come up with the Obsidian collection which is aimed at mature women.

"I think you can look and feel sexy and still be comfortable," she said. "Technology has really evolved and we can now create beautiful bras for a bigger bust without compromising the style and comfort."
