    A corset is a must have for the fashion conscious among us. They give a great hourglass shape and are real head turners. Once the preserve of the high-class dinner, dance they are now seen much more as an everyday staple.

    They are a must have in the goth, vintage, rockabilly/pinup, burlesque or steampunk scenes and many women chose them as bridal wear.

    Corsetry has a long and rich history and is very much in vogue now as the most glamorous of shapewear.

    There are many colours, materials, shapes and styles to suit all tastes and they can be seen adorning women wearing everything from jeans to a ballgown.

    The different types of corset include:

    Bustiers

    Flat-front style corsets – with a strong Victorian influence.

    Sweetheart neckline corsets. A popular choice for brides.

    Overbust Corsets - Cupped corsets with built-in pads and the sensual Lingerie corsets which are often worn with a G-string with either built-in or detachable garters to hold up your stockings.

  • Say a big thank you to today's beautiful lingerie on National Underwear Day

    So today is national underwear day! A day of much celebration here at Mio Destino. We know a good lingerie set can make you look and feel fabulous all day, which is why it deserves a whole day of praise. It is an exciting time in the world of lingerie, full of so many stunning colours, beautiful materials and sassy designs for you to fall in love with.

    It seems fitting for the day that we take a little moment to think about just how much lingerie has developed over these past few decades. Of course ladies have been using garments to strap down their bust for a long long time, most likely dating back to ancient eras. However, it may be hard to believe, but the first bra with cups and straps which separates and lifts the breasts was first created in 1914.

    An American lady named Mary Phelps Jacob attached two handkerchiefs together and made shoulder straps from ribbons to make the first concept of a modern day bra. It was a convenient solution to wear with her sheer evening dress, as a corset was sticking out in all the wrong places. Her creation was a success, and the idea soon spread. Mary ran a small business selling her invention which she called Caresse Crosby. She sold the business to Warner’s in 1935, who then introduced cup sizing, creating A, B and C cups. It was not until 1939 that the word bra was even introduced to our English dictionary!

    Now take a look at the twentieth century. We can enjoy gorgeous silks, sexy laces and soft tulles in any shape or style we desire! Here at Mio Destino, we think that is something worth celebrating.

  • Surprise her with a luxurious gift.

    It's not always easy choosing the perfect Christmas gift for your partner, girlfriend or wife. Chocolates are yummy but are gone so quickly, flowers are fun but fade before the season is out and you can only smell perfume…..but what about designer lingerie? It’s elegant, stylish can be worn year round and it is sure to bring a smile to any woman’s heart.

    Just be careful, remember you are buying for her and not for you. It’s fine to get her lingerie that you find pleasing, but make sure you both do. Take a peek in her lingerie drawer, but don’t get caught as it could prove difficult to explain. See what she likes to wear and what she feels comfortable and feminine in. Be sure of the sizes. Find out what lingerie brands she currently likes and why not search for similar brands to add some spice to her Christmas present.

    Maybe she likes more luxurious brands like Lise Charmel? Would she prefer something cosy like some pyjamas or a robe to snuggle up in? Maybe she would like something elegant but doesn’t like to buy it for herself but would love it as a present.

    Whatever you do, look for something stylish and pretty and something that will make her smile this Christmas. The real secret to the perfect Christmas present is to take your time and really think about her and what would make her happy, because it will make you happy too.

    We hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  • Stockings and suspender belts. Which will you be wearing.....

    Suspender belts and stockings Sexy suspender belts are perfect for a romantic interlude.

     

    Suspender belts are immensely popular with women and their admirers. Suspender belts, or suspenders as they are often known, are an essential article from a woman’s lingerie wardrobe. They are often made in silks, satins, mesh and elasticated fabric and tend to be made of a piece of fabric that is normally 2 to 3 inches wide which runs around the waist and just above the hips. Some retro or fashionable suspender belt designs can have a much wider piece of fabric and though black is very popular can come in wildly exotic and erotic colours. From this strip of fabric hang 2, 3 and 4 suspender elasticated straps on each side and these are often proportionally much smaller than the waist strip. A suspender belt should be closely shaped to the contours of the woman’s body. Each suspender belt strap is firmly clipped to the top of the stockings with the use of suspender slings, metal clips and a rubber disc which are attached to an adjustable elastic strip.. These are normally attached to a length of elastic allowing for adjustment.

    The suspender belts should be worn at the waist and slightly above the hips to prevent it being pulled down by the stockings. Certain women’s garments such as girdles and corselettes often come with suspender slings attached. These garments are often worn as shapewear to give a woman the perfect hourglass figure.

    Modern women tend to wear pantyhose, tights or hold-ups rather than stockings and suspenders for daily wear. However, many women will wear stockings and suspenders for a romantic interlude as they are widely appreciated by men who find them sensual and very alluring.

    What set of stockings and suspender belts will you be wearing this Festive season?
