We’re continually overjoyed by just how beautiful the girls of Victoria’s Secret are. Much like warm sun through the window on your face in the shower, a friendly cat paying you attention right as a good-looking girl walks past, or finding a packet of biscuits that you forgot you’d purchased,* they just make the world better around themselves in a radius. Kind of like inverse hand grenades.

If you’d like to be caught up in the awesome range of their lovely explosions (and boy, this analogy is wearing thin already) then you should check out the above video. In it, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel and Erin Heatherton are showing off themselves in what we assume is the cutting edge of lingerie technology.

We're not experts or anything though

Showstopper bras – which we had a go at defining in a previous article – are invisible underwear. Not in an Emperor’s New Clothes way, you understand, but more that they’re really hard to define when worn under clothes. They 'stop' the wearer 'showing' their bra architecture* and instead let them show off their body, being a real 'showstopper'.

Like Candice here, who can stop shows, traffic, hearts and sadness by merely entering a room

Do you see? It’s a pun, or a play on words. It’s genuinely sad that it’s taken us this long, and not one but two explanatory videos, to puzzle that one out. Comedy geniuses, that’s us. For more footage of Adriana, Candice, and Erin walking about in their underwear and looking as drop-dead gorgeous as ever, check out the behind the scenes video below:

*They’re like a PRESENT to YOURSELF
** ‘Brachitecture?’ No.
