Momma Mia

I have one compact vibrator that has been my holy grail for a long time now, and that's the We-Vibe Salsa. Nothing has even come close to kicking it from its top spot in my toy box. With the Mia 2, the Salsa is getting a run for its money. Lightweight, long battery life, gorgeous color and finish, and good variety of vibrations? The Mia 2 is now number 2 among my favorite toys.
Lightweight, long battery life, quiet, pretty on the eyes, USB charger.
The cap is easily lost, not a ton of vibratory power.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I was really excited to try out this new vibe, because I love Lelo's products and because I loved the look and feel of this vibe right out of the package. She was everything I hoped for, and a little more.

Deliciously, she charges with her attached USB port, so you can take her anywhere and keep her charged up (I suppose it says something about this toy that I'm talking about it in terms of gender, since that's a rare thing for me, but she really does have something of a personality, and it's all woman).

She is probably best suited for clit stimulation, but her shape and size allow all kinds of uses on both genders. The only thing she's not good for is anal; her material makes her lovely and smooth, but without a base all of that smoothness could be a detriment for anal play.

Because she is extremely quiet, small and discreet, she's great for travel, close quarters, showers, and public play.

Material / Texture

The Mia 2 is soft, smooth, and glossy to the eyes and the touch. She feels like quality all the way around, which has been my experience with Lelo toys in general.

Made from ABS plastic and phthalate-free silicone, the Mia 2 is really safe for your body and easy to care for and clean. She is smell- and taste-free, which rocks. She can get slippery if you're using lube, so be sure not to use too much or you're likely to send her flying. Designed to be discreet and pretty, the Mia 2 is a dark purple shade, in a shape that looks sort of like lipstick.

Design / Shape / Size

This baby isn't the tiniest vibe I've ever used, but she might be the lightest. She doesn't seem to weigh anything, which is both good and bad. On one hand, she's easy to manever and angle. On the other, she can easily lose her place or get lost, because it's almost like you're holding onto nothing.

About the size (and appearance) of a tube of mascara, the Mia is incredibly discreet. Someone would have to really know what they were looking for to pick it out from among a bunch of makeup options. Just over four inches long and about an inch in diameter, she fits easily into the palm, and doesn't get in the way of sex if you're looking for a little extra stimulation. Because she's so lightweight and easily disguised, she's kind of the perfect travel toy.

The shape is like that of most compact and bullet toys, with a rounded off end on the main vibratory side. The other side (which is useable, but has less vibration strength) is slanted like the end of lipstick. I found the shape to be fine, although the light weight and the perfect roundness of it made it a bit slippery and difficult to get it to stay in the perfect spot.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The We-Vibe Salsa has long been my favorite go-to compact vibe. In fact, nothing has even come close to it.

Until now. The Mia 2 isn't better (for me) than the Salsa, but it's a close second, and that's saying a lot.

Here's how the two compare:
Vibratory Power: Salsa
Vibratory Options: About equal
Ease of On/Off/Changing Vibrations: Salsa
Size: Salsa
Lightweight: Mia
Battery Length: About equal
Ease of Charging: Mia
Waterproof: I put the Salsa through a wash cycle in my washing machine and it still works great. I'd say that wins, but the Mia is waterproof as well.
Visual Appeal: Mia

So, all in all, a pretty close race. The Mia 2 just isn't quite strong enough in the power category to unseat the Salsa. She's also a bit harder to use -- you can find the + and - buttons while in the middle of play, but it's difficult to know which one you're pushing and how far you need to go. I kept accidentally turning it down too far when I was trying to change the vibration patterns instead.

One complaint I do have (and it's small) is that when you charge the vibe with the USB port, there is no place to put the cap. It doesn't stay on the end (like a pen cap would), and the chances of it getting lost are high. So make sure that when you charge your toy, you know exactly where the end is.

    • Long lasting power

Care and Maintenance

This toy is non-porous and waterproof, so a simple wash with hot water and soap makes clean up easy. It comes with a little bag to store it in, but I actually think it's more discreet without the cover up. Because the outer material is so hardy, I can't imagine that this toy would be easily broken or marred. She can be tossed into makeup bags, jewelry bags, and drawers without too much of a worry.
