Spears, 29, cuts a seductive, sensual pose in a white lace dress and black bra for the Spring issue of V Magazine, on newsstands Thursday.
Inside, she is photographed in a larger fashion spread in images that range from playful to mildly risqué.
In the accompanying story, Spears – whose new album, Femme Fatale, drops March 29 – talks about navigating her fame as a mom who's pushing 30 with two sons who are now 5 and 4.
Asked if she's more guarded today, she replies: "A little bit. I think it's easier to let people in when you're younger, but when I became a mother I wanted more privacy for myself and my children. A life away from my life."
But with the new album coming out, she's also getting back in touch with her audacious side, too. "The b-tch is back and better than ever!" she says.
