Ultimo is one of the high streets most well-known lingerie brands, created by Michelle Mone OBE in 1996. It has been synonymous with cleavage-enhancing, quality lingerie ever since but is it about to take a new direction?
We visited their lavish concession at House of Fraser Manchester and got treated to an expert bra fit. I was fitted in the Black Label OMG Vivian Bra, which is contrasting black and gold, with eyelash lace and shimmering straps. It’s built in with their infamous gel-technology and I was certainly impressed with the results!
Vivian Set, Bra £35, Short £18
As dresses get tights and lower, lingerie needs to adapt; que Ultimo’s range of flawless shape wear and seamless briefs to ensure that you can wear the perfect dress without having underwear issues.
Their famous innovative silicone gel bras are still popular, with many adding two cup sizes, giving an amazing natural look, for a fraction of the price of breast implants! The most famous bra is still the ‘Miracle Solutions Plunge Bra’ which was famously worn by Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich!
As fashions move, so has the brand and now Michelle has a fabulous swimwear range and self tan products, UTan, to add to her portfolio. Our favourite swimwear is this gorgeous black swimsuit with lace inserts which we think would be perfect for Ibiza and Las Vegas pool parties.
They also have a beautiful range of bridal lingerie, as well as strapless styles which can be sown in to your gown to ensure you stay comfortable and in place all day!
Ana, Bra £24, Briefs £12
Inspired by the ‘Fifty Shades’ phenomenon, their body harness is becoming one of their best loved products.
At just £20, the Black Label Harness can be worn with your underwear for a sexy bondage look, or worn over your clothes, like Michelle, to show off your figure.
So if you’re looking for something to spice up your weekend, or even just some gorgeous lingerie to make yourself feel great, visit the team at House of Fraser Manchester and you wont be disappointed!
