Things we do differently
We‘re not just another lingerie brand and we could list tons of reasons why. But you‘re a busy one, so we try to keep it short and sweet.
Our promise: No wires ever
At Lioa, we refuse to settle for anything less than the perfect balance of style and comfort. We believe you deserve to feel like the goddess you are, 24/7. That's why our lingerie and swimwear are designed to make you look and feel amazing, without sacrificing an ounce of comfort. No compromises, baby!
Our ethical production and sustainable approach
We think it‘s cool to care who makes your garments. So, every piece of lingerie and swimwear is ethically hand-made under fair working conditions in a small manufactory in Portugal that is specialized solely in the making of lingerie and swimwear.

Our Choice of Models: Championing Diversity
We know that women’s bodies come in all shapes, sizes, and skin tones – and we think they’re all crazy beautiful! At Lioa, we aim not only to normalize real bodies but to put them center stage. We work with models of different sizes, body types, and ethnicities so you can visualize how you would look in our lingerie (hint: gorgeous!). PS: We also keep it real by refraining from retouching our models.
