Before I start my review I would just like to apologise to any family reading as this might be a little strange to read from me as I’m not really open about what kind of lingerie I wear.. so I’m sorry if what you’re about to read makes you uncomfortable *blushes*
If you’re not aware already, Mio Destino is the perfect shop for us women to pick up lots of exquisite lingerie, sleepwear, hosiery, swimwear and even more! The lovely people at Mio Destino offer designer lingerie from top European brands, a five star service with FREE delivery, FREE returns and price matching. Orders are packaged discreetly and have a luxurious feel about them.
I was offered the Mio Classic Sun Goddess black and gold bra with the matching black and gold shorts which is a very dazzling and appealing lingerie set.
As you can see the set is rather sensual and I was surprised to find that this belonged in the Classic Range as I think it is more sexy than classic and not something you would wear every day. I feel like the set is a little raunchy and has a bondage feel about it, I think this is because of the harness strap detail. Nonetheless, I fell in love with the set as soon as I saw it and the pictures do not do this lingerie justice at all.
DELIVERY AND PACKAGING:
I received the package pretty quickly after being told that it had been dispatched which is always good. The parcel fit straight through my letter box and came in a pleasing and discreet plastic mail bag. When I opened up the bag I found my lingerie was stored in a cute drawstring pouch and straight away I was blown away by the attention that went into this. It makes you feel all happy and like it’s your birthday or something! It really added a lovely touch the lingerie and I was extremely pleased with the way my parcel arrived and how my lingerie was held.
I also found out for larger orders they deliver your lingerie in a box wrapped with a bow. Can you imagine how happy you’d be opening up that parcel?!
The packaging made me think that Mio Destino would be incredible to use if you’re wanting to surprise your partner as the packaging has a lot of pretty detailing about it and is very present like and you wouldn’t have to do any wrapping or waste your money buying boxes/bows/gift wrap to put the lingerie/sleepwear etc in, just order what you like and wait for it to arrive in the post and then give it as a present!
MY THOUGHTS ON THE LINGERIE:
The Mio Classic Sun Goddess set is described as a eye catching and radiant lingerie set and I honestly couldn’t agree more. The gold glitter detailing on the bra and the shorts against the sheer black material looks stunning. I decided to go for size 14 bottoms with a 36D bra and the fit was absolutely perfect, no complaints at all from me. They’re really well cut and the quality is fantastic. Sheer but strong and soft but supportive. I love the little detailing on the set like the small little bows placed in the centre of the bra and the sides of the shorts, the gold and sparkly material which shimmers.. they really make this lingerie set very unique.
The Mio Classic Sun Goddess underwired bra retails at £38.50 with the Mio Classic Sun Goddess shorts at a price of £20.75 which may seem a little pricey but I do believe they are worth every penny. I have worn my set around 4 times since receiving and washed it each time after use to see how well the set washes and last and so far I am very impressed. The set feels so comfortable and is very flattering when on.
I’m so in love with this matching set.

What do you think of the set?
* I would just like to say that this set was given to me free of charge in exchange for a review. However, this does not affect my opinions and everything I have said is my honest thoughts on the service and the lingerie.
