Why Matching Your Bra and Pants Is Better For Your Mental Health

Mio Classic Indian Summer Beige and Black Floral Bra

We all know that feeling when we buy a new set of matching lingerie. The endorphin rush that inevitably follows the purchase; mental images of romantic nights filled with candles, champagne and Mr Right come flooding into our minds along with the sudden feeling that we have all the sex appeal of a genetic cross between Beyoncé and Scarlet Johansson.

Here are our top 5 reasons why matching lingerie makes for a better mental state and top 5 matching lingerie sets to go with them. Choose your favourite then sign up to the Mio mailing list here to get 10% off* your purchase.

1. You love having a secret

You love having this little secret, a private knowledge you don’t even need to share for it to be enjoyed. Put on a matching lingerie set and bam, you feel instantly prettier, sexier, more put together, prepared for the day ahead be it the commute to work, that conversation with your boss or evening drinks. Sometimes the best treats are the secret ones.

2.You look and feel Confident

Matching lingerie says, ‘hey man, I’ve got it together, I know what I’m doing, what I like and what I want. I’m sexy through and through’. Okay, lingerie doesn’t talk, but if it could you know this is what a matching set would be saying. Acting confident is halfway to being confident so find your perfect set now.

3.You double your sexy statement

The dress slips from your shoulders revealing your perfectly chosen sexy bra, he’s in awe, you’ve got his attention and your feeling pretty sexy but wait! The dress slips to the floor pooling around your perfectly poised stilettos thus revealing your matching panties, double whammy, he’s putty in your hands. Ego boost? We think so.

4.You feel calmer

You know that mad panic to get dressed in the morning, the bleary eyed struggle to pull together a great outfit on a Monday morning? Well if your bra and pants match its half as hard to choose your undies, less decisions at 6am make for a calmer, happier you.

We’re all about self-expression at Mio Destino. Whether you’re a naughty but nice kinda gal or a sweet n’ sexy girl next door we believe you should let your lingerie express your personality, mood and desires and what better why to create a defining sense of self than matching your bra and panties?

St Patrick’s Day – wear green!

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

To most of us St Patrick’s Day includes heading down to the pub and drinking pints of Guinness whilst wearing something green. But there’s a bit more to it than that.

For those who don’t know Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick, this is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated annually on 17th March, the death date of the most commonly-recognised patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick.

This day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, as well as celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations involve public parades, festivals and the wearing of green clothing or shamrocks.

We’re celebrating St Patrick’s Day at Mio HQ today so here’s our selection of fabulous Green Lingerie an Swimwear to go with your green St Paddies Day outfit.

National Sleep in Day…. zzzzz

Here at Mio Destino we have all noticed that it’s getting darker. When we wake up in the morning and when we get home in the evening it all seems to look a bit more glum. Unfortunately that means our lovely British summer is over!

Ok, so we didn’t have much of a summer this year but we should be used to that by now. The summer being officially over isn’t all too bad….. because this Sunday, 27th October, is National Sleep in Day!

We will all be sleeping in this Sunday because we get an extra hour sleep  due to the clocks going back an hour. This marks the official end of British summer time for 2013.

Two things you need to do:

1. Make sure you set all your clocks, watches and especially your alarm clocks back an hour at 2am this Sunday morning.

2. Sleep in on Sunday!

To mark this wonderful day, because we all love and need a good night sleep, we will be wearing our Mio Lounge PJs and we hope you will be too! If you haven’t got any take a look at our collection.


We want to wish everyone a good night sleep and a lovely long lie in on Sunday!

Night Night!
