Who says sexy underwear has to be reserved for girls? Not Rihanna.

The singer, 33, has launched a collection of lingerie for men under her intimates label Savage x Fenty.

Hoping to redress the gender balance, the 'Glossy Flossy' range features satin heart print boxers, red mesh tank tops and for the really bold Glossy Flossy red mesh crop tops and matching mesh briefs.

The mesh pieces, in particular, appear to be proving popular: the red, mesh briefs are sold out in most sizes.

The line's not just offering something different, it's inclusive. Sizes range from XS to 3XL and the campaign features male models with varying body types.

A line-up of diverse individuals, both male and female, star alongside Rihanna in the latest campaign, including Madonna's 25-year-old daughter, Lourdes Leon.
