Victoria's Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Erin Heatherton, Candice Swanepoel and Chanel Iman got together to premiere the new Incredible Bra and Fragrance at Victoria’s Secret, SoHo in New York City on Tuesday (March 1). Dressed in matching sequined mini-dresses, the sexy supermodels posed for pictures and shared what they love about the two new bra styles, including self-adjusting straps (no bulky hardware!) and super-smooth bands that eliminate the potential for bra lines and back bulge—which apparently, even lingerie models experience.
A great-fitting bra is essential to looking and feeling sexy in your clothes, but to find out exactly what it takes to look as "Incredible" as a Victoria's Secret lingerie model, we asked Lima and her fellow Angels to reveal their best hot-body secrets.
VS Angel Fitness Tip: Tone Your Body with Pilates
Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge does Pilates to sculpt her body from head to toe. "It really changes the way my body feels," she says. "And after I finish, it's like I've had a massage." In addition to making you feel incredible in (and out of) your clothes, Pilates truly can change your body.

VS Angel Fitness Tip: Step Inside the Boxing Ring
Boxing training is the secret behind Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel's fit bodies. It's also the workout that helped Lima shed her pregnancy pounds—fast! Just six months after delivering her daughter Valentina, the sexy supermodel had her runway-ready figure back. Lima jumped in the ring three times a week at the Aerospace High Performance Center in New York City, but you don't need a fancy gym to reap the benefits of boxing. Try this boxing workout to get slim, strong and sexy.
VS Angel Fitness Tip: Buy a Resistance Band
Life can get crazy for a Victoria's Secret model, leaving little time for the gym. That's one reason why Swanepoel trains with a resistance band. It's so small and lightweight you can literally take it anywhere and fit in an effective workout for every muscle in your body. Learn more about resistance band training here.
VS Angel Fitness Tip: Hit the Weight Room
Victoria's Secret model Chanel Iman has trouble toning her naturally thin figure. "I have to gain weight by drinking protein shakes," she says. "Then, I do a lot of squats and weight lifting with my personal trainer three times a week." Lifting weights won't make everyone bulk up, though. In fact, since muscle takes up less space than fat, strength training ultimately makes you look slimmer.
