Mia - sex toy by LELO - review by xMila

Oh Mia!

Mia by Lelo is a great clitoral vibrator that is both discreet and rechargeable. Throw it in your purse for some fun on the go. It is USB rechargeable, so you can just plug it in your computer or laptop when the battery is running low. This little toy has strong vibrations, but they aren't the strongest out there, so keep that in mind if you are a power queen.
USB rechargeable, discreet, powerful.
Not waterproof.

extremely useful review


The Mia by Lelo is a fantastic clitoral vibrator that comes in the colors Pink, Purple, and Black. The black one, which is the one I got, is the improved version that has some bugs/defects corrected. Since Lelo released the black one, the pink and purple have been upgraded to the new motor, but I'm not certain if Eden is carrying those yet. If you would like to get a Mia on a different color than black I would suggest contacting Eden to find out if the pink and purple ones they carry have the newer motor.

Mia is a fun and discreet toy. It is designed for clitoral stimulation, but you could use it to tease other erogenous zones and for very shallow vaginal thrusting. I would advice against anal play, since it doesn't have a flared base and you wouldn't want to loose it back there. It is not waterproof, so don't take it with you into the shower or tub.

Material / Texture

The Mia is made made mostly of plastic, which rates an 8 on the Eden safety scale. The buttons are made of silicone, which has a rating of 10.

It comes in three different colors: black, pink, and purple (which looks more like a deep rose). The toy is very glossy, smooth, and glides very easily on the skin. The Mia doesn't have any smell or taste.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Mia is a very stylish and discreet vibrator. It resembles an elegant lipstick or mascara tube at a distance. If someone looked close enough, you could also pass it off as a flash-drive.

My Mia is all black, with a silver plastic band dividing the vibrator from the cap with the Lelo logo.

The measurements of the Mia are 4 1/2" in length, with 1 1/2" being insertable. It has a circumference of 2 3/4".

    • Beginner
    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Mia is has various speeds and patterns that you can go through using the + or - buttons. To turn off the Mia you press the - button until it turns off completely, or hold the + and - at the same time.

You can also lock it by pressing the + and - at the same time for a few seconds until the light in the control pad turns off. To unlock you repeat the same procedure until the light turns on again.

For the steady vibrations keep the + pressed until you reach your desired intensity.

The Mia also has 3 vibration patterns. After the setting is on the strongest vibration, press the + for two seconds to go through the patterns. To return to steady vibrations you press the -.

The patterns that Mia offers are:

1. Steady vibrations.
2. Pulsating
3. Fast Pulsating
4. Faster Pulsating

The strength of the vibrations on the highest level are quite strong. I would place it on the high end of 3 vrooms. I compared it with my Gigi, and they are about the same strength.

To charge the Mia you can connect it, either directly or with the cord included, to your computer or laptop USB port. The LED light on the control pad will be blinking, and when it is fully charged the white light will be steady. When the battery is low in power the light will be red.

    • Discreet sound
    • Multiple settings
    • Rechargeable

Care and Maintenance

Mia is not waterproof, so be aware of that when cleaning it. You can use water and soap, or your favorite toy cleaner and wipes. Do not submerge it in water.

Since Mia is made mostly of plastic, with the control pad made of silicone, I would advice using only water based lube if you are using any.

Mia comes in a very sturdy and discreet packaging that you can use for storage. It also includes a very handy pouch if you are traveling with this toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Like any other Lelo toys, the packaging of Mio is very elegant and discreet. The front of the outer box simply has the Lelo logo in it, while the back contains a picture of Mia.

The second box is completely black, with the Lelo logo on top. It is very sturdy, discreet, and perfect for storage.

Inside you will find your Mia, along with instruction manual, warranty, pouch, and a sample of the Lelo water based lube.

For the warranty you have to register the product on the Lelo website. It's good for one year, and it covers defects resulting from faulty materials or workmanship.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Very informative


I'm very happy with my Mia. I wanted a vibrator that was both discreet and rechargeable, and that I could bring along with me in my purse. This one meets all the requirements, and the vibrations are good enough for me. If you are a power queen though, you might want to look elsewhere for a more powerful toy. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 5 star rating is that it is not waterproof, otherwise this would have been a perfect toy.
Follow-up commentary
I love my Mia!!! I use it almost every time I have solo time. It is perfect for me, and I don't really mind that it isn't waterproof, since I don't take my toys into the shower or tub. The battery lasts a long time, and the intensity of the vibrations, even though they aren't the strongest out there, are just fine for me and get me off every time.
