Mio Destino Lingerie







Lingerie. I think there are two camps when it comes to lingerie. Some females don't really care too much about it as long as it fits, and others will happily spend hours browsing in the high street lingerie stores.

I'm someone who loves to indulge in pretty underwear and I like to make sure it matches too. I love the feeling of going out in a smart outfit, knowing that what's underneath is just as smart. It makes me feel put-together and more confident. Anyone else feel like this?

This beautiful package from Mio Destino did not disappoint. They were kind enough to let me choose a set from their website so I opted for the Swan Lake White & Black Bra* and, of course, the matching Swan Lake White & Black Brief*. I love lace but I hate those all-lace bra and brief sets, I guess I'm just not keen on the look and feel of them. This, however, has just the right amount of lace for my liking.

Comfort comes before style for me, always. The bra is extremely comfortable and the back has a decent amount of stretch in it. The brief is just as comfortable, and it has a mesh back which offers full bottom coverage, something that is so important to me!

Priced at £39.99 for the bra, and £19.75 for the brief, this certainly isn't cheap but the quality is great. Whilst I'm unlikely to fill my entire lingerie drawer with Mio Destino pieces, I will be investing in a few more later in the year because their pieces are so beautiful and different to what I've seen lurking on the high street. 

Ever since La Senza closed down, and then re-opened as a "new" La Senza, things just haven't been the same and I've been struggling to find a new place to splash the cash on lingerie. I think that Mio Destino may have just stolen my heart. 

What are your thoughts?

  2. A little bit expensive but lovely pieces :) As for La Senza, I don't go shopping in there anymore as I find that everything is just cheap looking and tacky. I definitely miss how it was before X

  4. Oh, this is a really pretty set! I think it is worth paying for quality and it will last a long time as well.

    Completely agree on La Senza - how did it go so badly wrong?!

  9. This is so pretty! I know what you mean, La Senza is a bit tacky now. I haven't really been in it since it reopened as I just haven't been impressed!

  12. Wow that lingerie is soo feminine and pretty. I have never heard of Mio Destino before - I'm always just obsessed with Victoria's Secret (they have the sexiest, most comfortable bras in the entire world), I tried La Senza a couple of times but I feel like their stuff isn't durable at all.. I have to check Mio out!!

    Hugs,
