The birds & the bees
If you don’t already know about Tutti Rouge, I think you must have missed out a little piece of fun in the lingerie world! This brand launched in 2013 has a really wide size range (28-38 D – HH) and their collections usually are a wind of cuteness for full busted ladies! It is all about colorful patterns and cute girly details! I wish they existed when I was a teen because at this point of my life affordable lingerie was only black and white. Tutti Rouge is a really refreshing brand and they really work hard to improve their pattern and bring something new to this industry.
Tutti Rouge loves to classify their designs in shoes categories so let me introduce the Stilettos of this capsule collection:
First, Sukki! This absolutely adorable three part balconnet bra features detachable straps: on the right you can see the detachable strap on, and on the left the (not really-)basic straps. I love this design as it is less dark than the usual strappy trend while it is still sophisticated. Tutti Rouge is never behind on their detailing and the pattern of the cups is very interesting. Also you can see the nice heart sliders, which are Tutti Rouge signature on these fully-adjustable straps! I hope this color will suit my skin tone cause it would be a very nice addition to my collection!
This very bright babe is a new Tutti Rouge shape which is kind of a midi-line. This makes it really attractive to me, actually. My love for longline bras is unconditional ahah! Well, this bra is not a longline but I think the scalloping around the band creates an illusion that I like.
The apex is very high and it looks like it gives a nice push up effect. As you can see the panty is very high waisted but for those of you who are not into this shape, a thong will also be available. Tutti Rouge coordinates are available in a XS to XXL size range.
Amelia is a lovely half cup bra which can feed your desire for lift and rounded shapes. But what really surprised me about this bra was its back which features cute lace triangles to embellish the straps. I am very sorry I completely forgot to photograph it but you can find a picture of it on the blog of the Petite Collegiate who was with me when I went to this booth. So this bra is all about details. The tiny polka dots on the top of the cups and the floral lace gave me a sweet impression. This design is really youthful. Also the bottom of the cup is kind of ruched which makes it very elegant.
The Kitten Heels :
If you know Tutti Rouge, you must know Nichole. This bra quickly became an essential of the brand. For SS17 they bring this style again in a cute orange leopard colorway. But wait! I can get what you are thinking right now… Why bringing this again if they aren’t any changes? (ahah or maybe you weren’t wondering this and were just happy with this new refreshing colorway?) Well, this time Nichole comes back with a racer back with heart hook detailing!
I am personally in love with this style (review here) but the first one that I bought had a hard tacking gore issue! Again the brand decided to improve itself and the last Nichole I tried didn’t have this issue so I think this orange one will mostly have advantages for me as the shape this style gives to my breasts is absolutely fabulous.

Here’s Pixie, a cute unpadded plunge bra with printed satin and innocent white lace on the top of the cup! I admit that white lingerie is not my cup of tea but this style might please a lot of young women who love innocent yet sexy designs. Pixie is supposed to give a great cleavage for an unpadded bra and also has a pretty low gore (what I really appreciate having close-set boobs…). I see a balance between the kid drawings inspired print and the corset inspired gore and plunge shape. This bra will be very nice for summer!
So… HERE IS THE AMAZING JESSICA! To be honest this colorway is supposed to be for AW16 but I saw it and had to take a picture for the more curious of you who already know the continuity colorways (black and ivory). I tried this style in the black colorway and I have been very surprised with the so perfect fit and nice cleavage it gave me even without the pads. Ahaah! They actually give a ridiculous cleavage if that’s what you are looking for! I do recommend this bra ! (I usually am very unlucky with plunges even the unpadded ones and this bra was just the more perfect fit I could imagine!)
Last but not least, Lexi is my favourite design of this capsule collection! I just love its aesthetic. Simple, cute, elegant, less is definitely more. This bra is really well situated in the ballet pump section! Well, I don’t like these shoes on me (I actually don’t like flat shoes and if I could only wear high heels I’d do it) but I still find them cute and the ballet inspiration is really present here. It looks like the cadet sister of Sukki !I love this color so much! Also the cut out mesh front is giving a little sexy touch that I need to see on my own boobs!
What do you think of « The birds & the bees » Tutti Rouge collection? Are you into colors and prints in your lingerie drawers or are you more into sophisticated black lace ?
Well, this post was my last Curve NY preview, and I hope it was useful!
I am so grateful and happy for what this last Summer brought in my life! Lingerie is definitely my bigger passion and I hope to be able to go next year to this exposition and continue meeting amazing people on my way!
