    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.

See which items they pick and get some inspiration for your bank holiday whether you're having a relaxing weekend at home, nipping to the beach, visiting family or having a romantic weekend away.

    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.

    Mio's Guide To Your Best Kept Supporting Lingerie Secrets

    With a summer chock full of events and occasions you've probably got all your outfits at the ready. Now the next step is finding that perfect lingerie to go with the dress; lingerie that won't be seen, that keeps you comfortable and even enhances your figure at the same time. We've put together a guide to help you match the dress you're wearing to the lingerie you'll need.

    And don't forget, if you sign up to our mailing list you'll receive 10% off your first order*.

    strapless dressThe strapless dress is a staple of the event dress wardrobe. Baring the shoulders is both classic and classy showing just enough skin to be sexy but not so much as to scandalize Aunty Martha at the family wedding.

     

     

     

     

    Key Issue: You need a bra that is supportive and strapless, one you can count on not to slip down because no one looks good yanking up a descending strapless bra. The bra should help keep the dress in place and stop it from doing the same southward dive.

    The Solution: 

    Body Wrap Regular Strapless Slenderizer Nude U-Wired Slip

    The Body Wrap Regular strapless nude control slip has a built-in bra for support. The moulded bra cups feature underwire for shape and lift. The 25% elastane fabric lifts the derriere and slims the hips, thighs and tummy. The slip has no seams making it invisible under clothing. The slip comes with nude and clear removable shoulder straps. This Body Wrap control slip is aso available in black.

     

     

     

    skin tight dress, lingerie solutions, shape wear

    The skin tight dress is the classic weapon of mass seduction, perfect for that special date with your love, showing your ex what he’s missing or simply dressing to impress for a girls night out.

     

     

     

     

    Key Issue: A skin tight dress can be both tantalizing and terrifying if the correct lingerie is not worn underneath. The least forgiving of all dress styles, the skin tight body con or bias cut dress hides nothing and reveals a great deal so smooth, nipped in curves are what you need and certainly no VPL.

     The Solution:

    Miraclesuit Shapewear Sexy Sheer Black SingletteMiraclesuit Shapewear sexy sheer black singlette features an opaque black body to slim the tummy, back and derriere and sexy sheer mesh thigh slimming panels. Bra support and straps allow you to wear your own bra. Indulge in this slimming secret now; buy in nude too.

     

     

     

     

    Naomi and Nicole Soft and Smooth Nude Hi-Waist Brief

    A favourite with women everywhere since Mary Quant first lead the mini revolution back in the swinging 60s. Nothing says fashion savy female like a classic mini dress and nothing shows off polished pins better.

     

     

     

     

    Key Issue:

    If you’re wearing a mini chances are your legs are one of your favourite features. With that in mind you may need a little extra boost to give you the beautiful body to match those perfect pins.

    The Solution:

    Naomi and Nicole Soft and Smooth Nude Hi-Waist BriefNaomi and Nicole Soft and Smooth nude hi-waist brief comes in soft, seem free design that slims the tummy, hips and derriere. Wonderful edge technology prevents the leg line from riding up. Buy today with similarly useful nude waist cincher.

     

     

     

     

     

    plunge dressWhat better way to celebrate your curves than with a plunge neck dress? Revealing a little tasteful cleavage is a sure fire hit with your other half, the perfect way to add sex appeal to any occasion and just the thing to bring out your inner bond girl.

     

     

     

     

    Key issue:

    You want to showcase your cleavage not your lingerie. Nothing says amateur like a visible bra and a low cut dress. You need a bra that is low enough to remain invisible but supportive enough to give your cleavage the shape and support it needs so you can look your very breast, ahem best.

    The Solution:

    Gossard Retrolution Black Padded Staylo SlipGossard Retrolution Staylo slip features moulded, underwired nude bra cups overlaid with black lace cut in in a deeply plunging v-neckline that extends into a fitted black and nude slip. Perfect for wearing under your favourite low cut dress. Treat yourself to this sexy piece now; buy with matching thong.

     

     

     

     

    retro dress, lingerie solution, retro lingerie, shape wear, long line bra

    With shows like Madmen becoming deeply ingrained in our style subconscious there’s no getting away from the fabulous retro style dresses of a bygone era. The key to pulling off a real retro look is often not the dress itself but the supporting garments.

     

     

     

     

    Key Issues:

    Women from the 50’s wore much more structured lingerie than we do today. The key to the look is a cinched waist and perky bustline. The hourglass reigns when it comes to retro dressing so you need something that gives you a more defined shape than the modern woman.

    The Solution:

    What Katie Did Kate Black Longline Cone Bra

    What Katie Did Kate black longline cone bra features the same conical bra cups as the iconic WKD cone bra now with an elegant longline body. Hook and eye front fastenings make this easy to take on and off. Love the look? Buy yours today with matching panty girdle.The perfect piece to create a subtle retro silhouette. Complete your vintage look, buy yours today.
