Digital Hub says among the top three things that make a woman feel her hottest are smooth legs, wearing new underwear and getting complimented on her looks, according to a study conducted by Boux Avenue.

Black high heels, red lipstick and a cleavage-enhancing bra also topped the list, says the research. In fact, 80 percent of interviewees said high heels make them feel instantly sexy (and slightly slimmer, mind you, which adds to the feeling of instant sexiness).

It may seem obvious that visible items like high heels and lipstick made the list, but the study gives us another reason to stock up on thongs. “High heels and red lipstick predictable have an effect on how we look, feel and act, but people tend to underestimate the power that new underwear can have on a woman, despite the fact that few people will actually see it,” says spokesperson Lisa Bond. “It’s amazing that the most subtle changes can transform a woman into feeling sexy.”

Although the study found that one in twenty women make an effort to feel sexy every single day,  there’s still a significant percentage out there that forgo the fancy heels--19 percent say they simply never bother putting in the effort to feel sexy. That sounds like a lot less work!
