Two of our lovely Mio Destino Customers kindly offered to tell us about their lingerie buying experience at Mio Destino. Thanks Dave and Sunita, for being fun, fabulous and not a bit shy! What Good sports you are!
Dave Says: I wanted to treat Sunita to something special but let’s face it, it wasn’t completely a selfless good deed. If there was ever a present that we both enjoy it’s lingerie! Sunita’s been away a lot with work recently and I wanted to spice things up when she got home after so much time apart. The Bordelle Angela Dress is pretty damn sexy but I got away with it because its still classy and she could tell it wasn’t a cheap gift.
Sunita: I was like ‘Wow, Okay, so into a bit of bondage then are we Dave!’. The Angela Dress was risqué but still looked really sophisticated, the fabric and the fit were really luxurious and it was fun to unwrap it from the lovely ribbon tied box. Dave managed to get it right, let’s just say a good time was had by all.
We love to hear from our customers about their Mio Destino experience and never more so than when it involves a little ‘He says, she says’. We asked one of our lovely gentlemen customers to tell us about his choice of gift and his lovely lady told us what she really thought.
Greg: ” Janna had a big birthday coming up and her best mate had arranged a surprise burlesque dancing class for a bunch of the girls. Janna’s got into the burlesque look over the last few years, she loves Dita Von Teese and has dropped some not-so-subtle hints about loving the glam, corset look, so I thought why not get her one then she can wear it to her burlesque class and on their big night out afterwards.”
Janna: ” I was so impressed with the corset, it’s beautiful. It’s definitely something I wanted but never could justify buying for myself. I was quite surprised Greg had a clue which one to get because I know corset sizing can be a bit tricky but he just called up the girls from Mio and talked through how it works and they helped him pick out the Vollersred satin cat corset and it fits like a glove!”
