Ultimo & Raica are in the pink!

Brazilian supermodel Raica Oliveira makes a serious splash in Ultimo’s brand new hot pink ‘Possession’ range, part of the firm’s stunning collection available from http://www.ultimo.co.uk. Raica, who is known as “The Sensation” in her native Brazil, looks incredible as she reclines seductively on a bed covered in black satin sheets.

The striking brunette who once dated football star Ronaldo was snapped up by Michelle Mone OBE, creator of Ultimo, at the end of last year after she spotted her on the catwalk in the U.S. This is Racia’s first Valentine’s campaign for Ultimo.

Michelle Mone OBE said;

“Ultimo sales are rocketing in the lead up to Valentine’s Day as men clamber to buy lingerie for their ladies. Lingerie is a great way to inspire romance and spice things up in the bedroom. Unlike roses which cost a fortune, wilt and die, lingerie is a long term investment and a gift that both partners can enjoy in equal measure.”

Michelle added; “Ultimo ‘Possession’ is the quintessential lingerie set for the boudoir, not only is it a gorgeous shade of deep pink but it’s crafted from luxurious satin which feels amazing against your skin. The bra also features Ultimo’s unique gel technology that adds two cup sizes for a va va voom Valentine’s cleavage.”

Raica, who boasts a 34-24-35 figure, is fast becoming one of the world’s top models commanding up to £20,000 per day. She has previously fronted campaigns for Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Dolce & Gabbana and has featured in more than 6 Vogue editions.

Ultimo Possession is crafted from rich luxurious magenta satin, trimmed elegantly with a black ribbon pleat and pink eyelash lace. Finished with black ribbon bows and decorative rouleau triple straps, the range is available in sizes 8-18 for briefs and 30-38 A-G for bras.

Ultimo Possession is available from http://www.ultimo.co.uk priced at £27.00 for the bra and £12.50 for the briefs. Ultimo is also available from Debenhams stores nationwide.

Ultimo Launch the World’s Skimpiest Bra

Ultimo has unveiled its quirkiest bra design yet, the Ultimo ‘Side Cleavage’ bra. The new patented & design registered bra delivers spectacular support, uplift and comfort despite being crafted from only 90 cm2 of material – 40% less than the average bra!

Side CleavagePerfect for wearing under tricky cutaway party dresses or ‘barely there’ vest tops, the clever bra features limitless hook positions and floating underwires, and launches in Debenhams stores and online (www.ultimo.co.uk) at the beginning of December priced at £24.00.

Michelle Mone OBE, creator of the bra, said; “We set ourselves the ultimate challenge with this design – to create a bra that is virtually invisible under even the skimpiest of outfits! It was a dress worn by supermodel Gisele that inspired the design, I remember seeing her wearing it and thinking ‘what does a girl wear under a dress like that’. The answer is this amazing invention, the Ultimo Side Cleavage Bra.”

The bra features unique elongated cups that are cutaway for minimal coverage, as well as floating wires that provide the virtually invisible support. Silicone detail within the cups maintains the perfect position for the bust, whilst integrated foam fingers add boost. The bra is available in black and comes in sizes 32-36 A-D.

Michelle added; “The Ultimo Side Cleavage Bra is the perfect solution for the party season – it gives you all the support that you need, creates a brilliant silhouette and delivers amazing ‘wear all day’ comfort. Not only that, but the straps are multi-positional, so its incredibly versatile allowing you to wear it a thousand

different ways under any dress style.”

Bespoke Tartan range to celebrate Ultimo’s scottish roots; Happy St. Andrew’s Day!

tartanSince launching Ultimo in 1999, Michelle Mone OBE has remained a proud Scot, committed to her Celtic roots and heritage – and now the entrepreneur has taken her Scottish pride to a whole new level by launching her very own Ultimo tartan on St. Andrew’s Day, Scotland’s official national day!

Michelle, 39, who last week received an OBE for her services to the UK lingerie industry, developed the bespoke tartan for a limited edition range of lingerie, aptly named “Tartan‟, which launches in Debenhams stores and online today, Tuesday 30 November.

The gorgeous Scottish-inspired set is available in sizes 30–38 A-D priced at £27.00 for the balcony bra and £12.00 for the thong. The range is crafted from a luxurious printed satin and given a contemporary twist finished with a stylish black eye-lash lace and black ribbon bows.

Michelle Mone OBE, creator of Ultimo, said; “Whilst Ultimo is a globally recognised brand and stocked throughout the UK, I wanted to celebrate the brand‟s Scottish roots and create something fun and flirty in celebration of St Andrews Day.

“Over the past few years tartan has shed its traditional roots and become synonymous with fashion, thanks to designers like Christopher Kane and Vivienne Westwood – and it‟s perfectly fitting that Ultimo should be the first lingerie brand to have their very own tartan. This range is gorgeous and every Scottish lassie should have a set in their lingerie drawer!”

Ultimo “Tartan‟ goes on sale today in Debenhams Stores nationwide and online at www.ultimo.co.uk . The range is modelled by Ultimo’s brand new “face & body”, Brazilian supermodel Raica Oliveira – former girlfriend of football superstar Ronaldo and ex Victoria Secrets model.
