On Saturday the postman delivered a very exciting little parcel from lingerie brand Ultimo. I had to wait for Jim the plumber to clear off before opening up my delivery and when I did I wasn’t disappointed!! If you haven’t come across Ultimo before, errr where have you been??!! This brand has been around since 1996 producing beautiful cleavage enhancing lingerie and providing us girls with underwear solutions that can be worn under the most revealing of dresses – not something I do that often though!
So I was sent a set from the fresh new ‘Mint & Match’ collection introducing beautiful vibrant green lace (which I was sent) and white and green polka dots, perfect light colours for summer and a bit of colour if like me you don’t mind flashing a pop of coloured bra strap!
I road tested this set on Saturday, washed it on Sunday and wore again on Monday to give you guys a good review. On first inspection I was surprised at how well made it was, I’ve had Ultimo lingerie before but often found the bra a bit too constructed and padded for my liking but even though this has a lot of support it’s not heavy and felt light and comfortable on, there is nothing worse than wearing an uncomfortable bra!!
The bra is ‘The One’ which is one of Ultimo’s best-selling designs and apparently designed to provide maximum cleavage, comfort and to avoid the dreaded ‘double boob’; not something I have ever had I’m pleased to say!! It can also be worn in several ways as the straps can be adjusted, so this can be worn in summer under vest tops without your bra strap on show. The bra definitely ticks the cleavage and comfort boxes for me, when Mr B got a look his words were ‘bloody hell!!’ so there we go! 😉
The Brazilian briefs were also very comfortable, I prefer this style over a thong as they are much sexier and these feel as if you’re not really wearing anything also they don’t give any horrible VPL.
As with any beautiful lingerie it is recommended that you wash this set by hand, but I can’t be faffed about with that! I popped this set into a delicate bag and washed on 30 with similar colours and it came out fine!
When I told my friends I was reviewing a little something from Ultimo my friend Kyja (who always has an enviable cleavage!) said “Ultimo are my favourite bra designers; can’t recommend them highly enough” and after road testing this set I tend to agree with her! The quality, comfort and fit is so good for the price. Unlike some bras where you never know what size you’re actually going to be this was very true to size so you can buy with confidence knowing it will fit well!
Now I obviously don’t look as amazing as Abbey Clancy in anything let alone lingerie so I mainly did product shots for this review but here is Abbey looking HAWT!!
The ‘Mint & Match’ collection is out today (6th May 2014) the bra is available in sizes 32-38 A-E priced from £24 and £12 for the matching Brazilian brief – go on give yourself a little treat!
