  • Corsets are the perfect addition to a womans shapewear wardrobe.

    Mio Destino Overbust purple Corset with swarovski crystals Mio Destino Overbust Corset - perfect high fashion giving a woman an hourglass figure.

    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.

    Underbust Corsets -The Longline, Cincher, Halter and Cross-back style corsets, Waspie, Waist trainers and the Bodice.

    Why not look at the Mio Destino Corsets ?

    We are sorry to note that Cazar lingerie, the online German fashion website has now closed down. It was one of the early, front-runners in the online intimate apparel sector and will be sorely missed.

  • Spring clean your lingerie wardrobe and put the tired wardrobe in storage!

    Have you looked in your drawer and found your lingerie looking a bit dull or tired after months of winter wear? Good news, spring is nearly here and it’s time to wear those bright, vibrant colours again!

    There’s nothing like a spring clean to cheer one up and get ready for summer. Why not get all of your clothes that you had forgotten you own (and maybe wonder why you ever bought them), and put them in self-storage, into a charity store or EBAY them.

    Keep the good stuff and be tough on the rest. Remember if you haven’t worn it in a year, are you really going to wear it in the next year? After all there is probably a very good reason you have passed the garment over in favour of others for so long.

    Be honest with yourselves! If it doesn’t fit anymore, are you really ever going to get in it again without some kind of superhuman effort! If you don’t like the garments and you don’t feel good in them then send them to the tip, unless someone else could make good use of them.

    If they are old and tatty then, do you really want to be caught in them – even down at the garden allotment?

    If something has sentimental value then package it safely and stick it in the self storage, but otherwise just move on.

    Once you know what space has been liberated in your wardrobe, you will know what you have to play with in terms of re-stocking new lingerie, and at Mio Destino we can help you with that.

  • 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!

    Celine – We’re planning a little city break to Barcelona. My plan is to enjoy great food, good wine, see the sights and visit the beach.

    I plan to take the Maria Bonita Tuerts bikini with me as the colours are so gorgeous and bright, a perfect match for the vibrancy of Barcelona's city beach. The Maria Bonita Aradia white mini dress is also a must as it packs up small enough for my carry on luggage and I can wear it on the breach or strolling around the hot Barcelona streets. I've chosen the Lise Charmel Effusion Bleue Blue Half Cup Bra and Italian brief because it's totally beautiful and just a bit special so I know I'll feel lovely in the evenings.

    Sophia – I’m getting married in 6 weeks time so I plan to take a break from all the stress of planning and spend some quality time with my other half at pre wedding spa weekend.

    I always like to wear a swimsuit when I'm in a spa so I bought the Lepel Capri red v-neck because it's flattering and also sexy enough that I can take it on honeymoon later next month. I'm also taking the Gossard Superboost black lace slip which I chose because its elegant and sexy but not too pricey and I'm saving my pennies for the Lise Charmel Romantique Desir low back nightdress which I'm buying for the honeymoon.

    Charis – I’m spending the weekend with a group of friends at one of their houses. There will be lots of chatting, wine drinking and of course a night out at our favourite cocktail bars.

    It's basically going to be one extreme or the other this weekend. I'm either going to be in my PJs with a glass of wine nattering with the girls at home or out at a bar and properly dressed up. I'm taking my favourite Mio Lounge Ocean Breeze PJs with me because they're comfy and perfect for a day spent doing nothing. In the evening I'm wearing a short, tight sexy little number which requires some clever underwear to go with it to maximise the effect of the dress. The Spanx Lust Have nude high waist half slip is perfect, totally smooths out my waist and hips and I can wear a pretty bra with it so I still feel sexy.

    Christy – I’m currently 7.5 months pregnant so I will be spending a relaxing weekend at home avoiding doing anything and enjoying the peace and quiet while it lasts.

    My top picks for my relaxing bank holiday weekend are the Irall Cappuccino Pyjamas because they are really pretty and the stretch fabric accommodates my ever growing bump and is really comfy. I've also bought two of the Lorna Drew nursing bras in preparation for the baby coming. You aren't supposed to wear wires at this late stage in pregnancy and I find, unlike the majority of maternity lingerie, that Lorna Drew lingerie is both practical for every day and also still offers some actually sexy styles when you want to feel a little less like you're smuggling a bowling ball and a little more like an attractive woman.
