Tutti Rouge Betty 30DD

I bought this back when Tutti Rouge had a sale- buy 5 items or more and get 55% off. I didn’t initially buy this bra for that sale, I’d bought 2 Liliana bras with matching panties, and another Liliana bra. Two of the Liliana bras didn’t fit at the time, so I sent them back for an exchange, they didn’t have replacements in smaller sizes, so I bought this and a Pearl bra. My main reason for buying this bra was because it looked like it fit similarly to the Tutti Rouge Frankie bra, which fit me at the time.

 

When I initially bought this bra, there was some room in the top of them cups, but at the time of me taking the pictures (October), I’d had some growth, so there wasn’t extra space. If I still had the bra today, there would definitely be some quadding. The sides of the cup come up kind of high, and have the potential to irritate. There did seem to be some space at the bottom of the cup, directly above the wire.

Even though this bra was lightly padded, I got a very pointed shape. A lot of Tutti Rouge bras are known to be wide and shallow, and this was definitely a wide one. The cups were 5.6 wide with a depth of 8.6 inches. The depth ratio 1:1.54, which means it’s slightly shallow to average.

 

The band is tts,  stretching to 30 inches. At the bottom of the bra, on the front, there is a ruffle. It’s cute, but wouldn’t be practical underneath a tight top.

 

The gore is 1.4 inches high, and about 1 inch wide. Although it was relatively low, I could tell it would have been painful to wear after a while.

 

The straps are wideset. Surprisingly they’re too wideset for me, which is something that doesn’t happen often. The straps are only partially adjustable. The sliders on the straps are hearts.

 

Have you tried any bras from Tutti Rouge? How did you like them?

Tutti Rouge Pearl 30DD

I bought this back when Tutti Rouge had a sale- buy 5 items or more and get 55% off. I didn’t initially buy this bra for that sale, I’d bought 2 Liliana bras with matching panties, and another Liliana bra. Two of the Liliana bras didn’t fit at the time, so I sent them back for an exchange, they didn’t have replacements in smaller sizes, so I bought this and a Betty bra. My main reason for buying this bra was because it looked like it fit similarly to the Tutti Rouge Frankie bra, which fit me at the time.

 

When I initially bought this bra, there was some room in the top of them cups, but at the time of me taking the pictures (October), I’d had some growth, so there wasn’t any space, and there was some slight cutting in. If I still had the bra today, there would definitely be some quadding. A lot of Tutti Rouge bras are known to be wide and shallow, but this bra has a depth of 8 inches and a width of 5.25, which makes the depth ratio 1:1.52, which means it’s slightly shallow to average. There did seem to be some space at the bottom of the cup, directly above the wire. The sides of the cup come up kind of high, and have the potential to irritate.

 

 

The band is firm. At the bottom of the bra, on the front, there is a cute ruffle. Cute, but wouldn’t be practical underneath a tight top.

 

The gore is 2.5 inches high, and about .75 inches wide. It was sitting on tissue, and for the brief time I had the bra on, I could tell it would have been painful to wear after a while.

 

The straps are wideset. Surprisingly they’re too wideset for me, which is something that doesn’t happen often. You may not be able to see it in the pics but the straps have some rouching. The straps are partially adjustable. The sliders on the straps are hearts.

Tutti Rouge Liliana 30DD

This is going to be a short one. As you will see the bra doesn’t really fit.

Color: Sunshine yellow

The bra:

Big pink bow at the top of the gore

Small bow where the cup and straps meet

The only seam on the cup is the one that attaches the lace to the bottom of the cup

The lacing at the top reminds me of Curvy Kate bras, but the material is very stretchy.

Tutti Rouge signature heart shaped slider

The fit:

From the front it looks like the bra fits okay:

The cup is too wide and shallow for me

Issues:

  • the sides come up too high
  • the band is not level
  • the wire is too wide

There are certain things I can live with when it comes to bras, but a too wide cup that irritates my side is not one of them. So I returned the bra, in exchange for a 30D. I know that one may not fit either, but if I bend the wire I think it may help. And hopefully the band will be somewhat smaller (even though it’s the same size). This bra is definitely for someone that’s wide and shallow. I recall reading that it was advised to size up. But if I did that it would be horrible on me; the wire would be halfway around my back!

In the past, I’ve come to realize that when I buy half padded bras (or semi soft as they’re sometimes called), I need to size down. The top portion is alsmost always too open for me. This bra seems to be the exception, but I feel I still need to size down.

Tutti Rouge Nichole 28D/28DD Collection

I bought 5 of this style of bra knowing that they would all fit. And since the fit of them is just about the same, I decided to make this as one if post instead of 5 separate posts. Most of the pictures posted with be all 5 bras together.

 

Sugar Pink/Noir 28D

Noir/Pink 28D

Powder Blue/Noir 28D

Papaya 28D

Purple/Pink 28DD

There is a leopard print bow at the gore, with a small pink heart

There is a small bow where the cups and straps meet. The bow matches the color of the thread

And the lace at the top of the cup also matches the thread.

There are cute little heart adjusters ☺️

Some of the heart adjusters are gold and some are silver.

Papaya has gold; sugar pink has silver

Tutti Rouge is ‘engraved’ on the closure

A view from the top so you can get an accurate look at the shape

I tried the greenish bra on inside out,and was able to get better pictures. These are more accurate to what I actually see.

The red line is where I think my breast should be.

 

I just… Don’t even know why this style looks so wrong on me. I don’t know how it could have been fixed. There is no real fix for this bra, because the 28D was the smallest size. I think there needs to be more fabric on the sides of the cup, or more stretch to the fabric.

The bra is like, pushing the sides of my breast to the front (front and center), but it’s not working the same way it does on my Cleo bras (Minnie and Maya for example). It pushes my tissue in too much.

Are my breasts too firm for this bra? Every other woman I’ve seen wear this bra have not had this issue, so I don’t know if it’s just my breasts, or if this style is incompatible with smaller breasts (everyone that has reviews of this bra seem to have breasts a lot bigger than mine)

People have said this bra fits similarly to Cleo Marcie, but it doesn’t.

I think one issue I have with this bra, is that for 3 of the 5, the wires are too narrow. 3 have widths of 4.5″, sugar pink has a width of 4.75″, and purple has a width of 5″, but the purple is also a bigger size.

I think there’s enough depth at,the bottom of the cup, but not enough on the outer side; and there’s a little too much depth at the apex.

Tuttie Rouge Frankie 30dd

Color: cornflower

The bra:

Closeup of the cups

Theres a white with silver polka dot bow at the top of the gore.

There are no bows where the straps and the cups meet.

The straps are very stretchy

The strap adjusters are cute little hearts.

Cute little frilly lace at the bottom of the cups

The signature ‘Tutti Rouge’ on the back of the band

The review:

The straps on this are very wide set. This is how it looks when I out the bra on with the straps as they were supposed to be.

As you can see they’re sitting on the ends of my clavicles. And the straps are literally in front of my armpits.

This is how I wore them; the straps are at an angle.

From the right

From the left

The sides of the cup come very high.

While the bra doesn’t look like it’s big, it is

I didn’t know if the band was stretched out since I bought this second hand, but it is pretty big (not Claudette big though.).

The band. I have the straps adjusted as short as they will go. The band doesn’t seem to be riding up.

Consensus: This bra is very cute, but I would like to try it in a 28e.

I wore it to work yesterday and these are the issues I have with this bra:

the band is too big

the straps don’t adjust long enough

the straps are very far apart.

the gore is high. Initially I didn’t have an issue with the gore, but after a few hours (I’d say at least 5) it started to bother me. It wasn’t as painful as some gores, but I knew today, I wouldn’t be able to wear a regular bra comfortably.

The sides of the cup come up very high. Initially it wasn’t too much of an issue, but by 7pm, I was ready to rip the bra off. (I actually went to target braless- but I wore a heavy sweater.

I do want to note that I’ve read that this bra runs wide, and I will say for me, it didn’t seem to be wide; At the width being 5.25″, it’s not exceptionally wide, it’s .25 wider than my yellow Marcie. I believe the extra width comes from the wires being longer.

Also, with the frilly lace at the bottom. It makes it look like the gore isn’t tacking all the way, but it is.
