Tutti Rouge Sukki 30GG and Medium review

Dear readers, I am SO so sorry for the radio silence… Life has been as cruel as generous to me these past months. I went through some real roller coasters… But here I am. Happy, healthy, and ready to conquer the world. 🙂 And today, I am bringing you one super cute set from Tutti Rouge lingerie.

For those who are still skeptical about cute lingerie for larger cups, I think it is time to stop the sad propaganda… I mean, you do have some great options. 🙂 Better late than never, right? So while the strappy trend saturated the lingerie industry these past 2 years, some cute pieces are still popping out in their own way.
Here is Sukki, a lingerie set named after the burlesque doll Sukki Singapora. And just like her, it is unusual, girly and kind of sassy.

The first time I saw this set, I was immediately attracted by the “fishnet” layer on the cup and on the front of the panty. It looked different, and gave a touch of sophistication to this set. Actually it is not a simple fishnet. It is more like a lot of lozenges linked together by their four angles.  I would love to see it as an unpadded bra! I actually like the choice of this beige foam for the cup. It gives a smoky look to the whole set and seems to go well with every skin tone.
I received the bra in my usual 30GG and the panty in a Medium and these sizes seems to be the right ones for me.

Although the design was attractive to me, my first concern about this bra, when I saw the first stock pictures was that it seems very open at the top of the cup. You might know that I have bottom heavy breasts and I usually struggle to fill the top of plunge bras. I had a feeling that I could have the same issue with this one.

DSC08431_edited_editedessay.jpg

Actually, the bra fits true-to size if not a little big in the cup. It is deep and while its shape reminds me of a half cup bra, it provides much more coverage.
The shape is clearly made to provide cleavage, though. It is kind of shallow at the bottom of the cup and deep close to the top. This probably saves me from the gap I see when I put the bra on at first. I mean, my breasts tend to adjust themselves in the cup through the day  and then everything falls into place. I think this bra is very good for ladies with wide roots like me but it would probably fit better if you also have full on top breasts. This way you should get a cute cleavage and fill it completely. If you are not FOT, you could still fill the cup completely since the depth is close to the top of the cup, your breasts should be somehow pushed up but yes, I think there will be a gap at the bottom. I personally get some discreet cleavage after wearing the bra for several hours .

DSC08458_edited_editedessay.jpg

The bra itself is super super comfy. Its narrow gore tacks softly against my sternum and it sits very well on my rib cage without digging in. The band features three sets of three hooks and eyes and the straps are fully adjustable. As usual, you can see Tutti Rouge’s signature Love heart sliders which make everything cuter 🙂 .
Talking about straps, you might have noticed the two removable straps? Well, in reality, it is only 1 strap that you can attach to the gore of the bra and link to the main straps by a little hook that fits around the straps rings.  I personally prefer the bra without these additional straps but when I am in the mood it is always nice to have this option.

DSC08467_edited_editedessay.jpg

Can we talk about the coordinates? Because they’re adorable! I am so glad Tutti Rouge made a high waisted brief to go with this bra! It makes this set utterly comfy and adds an elegant touch. I love this brief! It looks so neat and feels so nice!
Take note that Tutti Rouge panties usually run smaller than other UK brands, though. I usually order a size 10/Small for my underwear (except indie brands briefs) and this Medium is almost tight against my hips. However, this is the best size for me I think and I don’t feel any discomfort. I like the little keyhole and the ruffles at the back of the brief, but my favorite thing must be the seamless edges… I wish all my panties were this way. I hate visible panty lines. Let say that I adore this coordinate. I find it very well-made and it makes me feel super cute too. If high waisted briefs are not your cup of tea, you also have the brazilian brief option which seems to be nice as well. 🙂

DSC08477_edited_editedessay.jpg

In a nutshell, I am very happy with this set. It is easier to wear than I thought at the beginning and although the bra doesn’t disappear under tight shirts, I like the shape it gives. I hope so bad it is going to be released as an unpadded bra! Every year I am happy to discover more fun stuff for us full busted ladies. I can’t wait to see the next trends.

Also, I want to thank you for still reading my blog even if I kind of disappeared lately. I have plenty of reviews to come and I am almost in holidays from school so everything should be fine from now.

Sending love,
Yours truly,

Review of Tutti Rouge Liliana in Fruit Salad

I am all about black lingerie these days but weirdly enough everybody around me keeps saying I would be cute with pastel or bold colours. I am trying hard but well, always end up buying the black one. So when a few weeks ago I had the surprise to receive an orange set from Tutti Rouge, I thought that was a sign.

DSC04043_edited4.jpg

Well, I am not going to lie, I don’t like orange. I always wonder when, apart from Halloween time people are supposed to wear this color. However, when I put this set on, I realized that this « fruit salad » colorway suits my skin tone in a lovely way, giving me a very girly/dolly look. I think I basically look like a candy wearing this Liliana set and I really like candies.

* This set was gifted to me for the purpose of a review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*dsc06070edi

From all the sets Tutti Rouge has created I think Liliana is the one that has the more « every day » look. I have heard a lot about it, as apparently the whole lingerie community has tried it at least once. I also tried it a few years ago and my experience was kind of sad. It was extremely shallow in the cups and even if I tried a 32G it was WAY too small for me. A lot of people said that I had to size up in this style and all but I think the incompatibility was too big for I can decide to order it again in this life.
However about 3 months ago, I heard at Curve that Tutti Rouge has improved the fit of this bra so it could be less shallow and more true to size. And guys, they didn’t lie ! I received the bra in my usual UK 30GG and when I put it on for the first time I had to admit that despite the unusual color the fit was perfect. Like PERFECT for me.
Let’s see how I like it.
dsc06053_edited1
First of all, the design. Liliana is definitely is a good definition of Tutti rouge aesthetic. Colorful, lace, ribbons and bows everywhere possible, pin up-ish, youthful and full bust friendly. Indeed, this bra has been available from a 28D to a 38J (also 40-44,  D-F), and in about 17 colorways since its creation (if I counted well). However only 6  of them (the more recent ones) provide the exact same fit as the Fruit Salad : Teal,  Noir/Sugar, Ice white, Noir, Crème/Nude and Nude. I love the Nude one, although it wouldn’t be nude at all on me. I find this colorway very delicate.

My favourite detail about this set is the « chubby » pink bows which pop out in an adorable way on the central gore and on the front of the coordinate. The color is so bold ! Also the Tutti Rouge signature heart shaped racers on the straps complete the super girly look. The lace is pretty and I have to say that I especially like it on my bum ahah ! Overall I think this set is fun.

DSC06131_editedbil_editedacc_edited.jpg
About the fit, the first thing I noticed was the extreme comfortableness of this bra. Really, it is super comfy ! I think it goes directly to the selection of more comfy bras ever in my wardrobe. It doesn’t leave any mark, doesn’t dig in at all, I don’t feel the gore even if it tacks beautifully and really makes me feel secure, the straps are fully adjustable and the cups are so lightly padded that I feel like I am wearing an unpadded bra. I have a lot of padded bras now but I always prefer the unpadded ones on a daily basis.  They make me feel more free. Liliana is an amazing bra in that sens. Giving you support and a rounded yet natural shape without the weight and space that can take a padded bra. I love that the top of the cups is not padded at all. It allows a better adaptation for asymmetrical breasts, I think. To be honest, I am in between a 30G and a 30GG because my breasts have almost one size difference. It is rare that I can fit in a 30G  or I completely fill a 30GG. That said I think this bra is true to size.

DSC06050_edited4.jpg

My bigger breast sits comfortably in the cup and I am happy to say that this bra makes my asymmetry less obvious as the smaller one feels just fine even if it has some extra room . I would say that Liliana is not too closed at the top so that it can adapt to a little upper fullness without cutting in, although I think it it definitely more full on bottom and side friendly.
The wires are quite wide, even for my wide roots, but they really dont bother me. They are soft on my skin and my armpits are safe too. It happened once that I felt them in an unpleasant way after a long day but I think it is because my ribs are too close to my skin and this bra tends to sit a little bit lower than my infra mammary fold. I just readjusted it and then the discomfort disappeared.

DSC06058_edited4.jpg

It didn’t leave any mark as I said before. I love that the gore is relatively low and really apart from its wideness I feel like this bra really respects my morphology. I don’t feel it and it is so thin for a padded (semi padded according to the brand) that I think it is a perfect everyday bra even for the horribly busy days when you just can’t stop moving and running everywhere (my life these days basically). However, for those who like a lot of projection and uplift, I have to say that this bra gives a relatively low profile. It doesn’t make your boobs look smaller though (I don’t know if that makes sens).

dsc06068_edited
I am happy that I received the short as a coordinate since it is my favorite kind of bottoms.
I have weird experiences with Tutti Rouge bottoms since forever… Their first collections bottoms in a size Small felt huge on me, and then I have tried their Nichole in a size XS (which was absolutely tiny), Jessica and Eliza bottoms in a size Small and all of them gave me terrible cutting in. So I decided to ask for a size Medium for this one.

dsc06071

This time it is a little bit too big. It is not awfully big but I think a size Small would have been better since the fabric is way more stretchable compared to the other styles I have tried. Because of that, this short can sit very high on my belly or very low on my bum. But I know some of you would like this coverage so it is not necessarily a defect. I also get a lot of wrinkles if I don’t stand up motionless. It is still super cute though. It is very comfy, the cut is flattering and the transparency effect of the lace against my skin looks lovely.

dsc06069kk

Also my butt does not eat it and that’s great. I especially like that even if this short is too big it adapts very well to my body and feels light and soft.
Overall, my opinion about Liliana has been completely changed by this set and I am positively surprised. I’d love to get it in other colors but as Tutti rouge has some very original designs at the moment, I think I’ll try to get some of them first ! The Betty Burlesque is definitely on my wish list !!

Hope you have a great colorful day ! ❤

xx Wen.

 

 

Curve NY Preview: Tutti Rouge SS17 capsule collection

The birds & the bees

DSC04384_edited.jpg

From left to right: Chloe, Pixie, Amelia

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:

dsc04386

Sukki 28-38 D-HH cup

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!

dsc04390

Chloe 28-38 D-HH cup

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.

DSC04403_edited.jpg

Amelia 28-38 D-HH cup

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 :

DSC04389_edited.jpg

Nichole 28-38, D-HH cup

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.

img_2484

Pixie, 28-38 D-HH cup**

** (This picture is courtesy of the Petite Collegiate)
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!

The Platforms:

dsc04399

Jessica  28-38 d-HH cup

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!)

Ballet Pump:

DSC04405_edited.jpg

Lexi 28-38 D-HH cup

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!

Yours truly,

Wen. ❤

My name is Bond …

Agent Provocateur is a British brand known for its luxury design and its suggestiveness. As their products are pretty pricey I did not hope to try them before being older and wiser (but on reflection I think I will never be an adult…) . Two years ago I’ve discovered the capsule collection L’Agent, designed by Penelope and Monica Cruz. I have been pleased to see that it was a bit more affordable than the main collection, giving me a chance to approach the Ap quality. Unfortunately, with my G/GG cup I can’t fit into their bras and I have to admit that I had given up the idea of wearing this brand until this summer. The Idalia suspender in dark pink is my first L’Agent by Ap piece and I find it amazing.

2fdccfe4-676d-4fe8-9dfb-25397f7fb359xxxx

I lament the quality of my camera because you can’t see how dark and beautiful is this pink.

I love suspenders. I have to say that I don’t wear them so often as I love my jeans, but they make me feel feminine and sophisticated. I ordered this one in a size Small for my birthday and it fits pretty well. I wear it at the loosest hook. This piece is very well-made, I adore the eyelashes lace!!! Also, the gold metal finishes make it look very luxurious.
The Idalia suspender is very comfortable to wear not like those suspenders which make you feel uncomfortable in your belly area… This one is soft against my skin and does the job. As I don’t wear pink so often I have not a lot of options to match it but it works beautifully with an old Aubade thong and my Tutti Rouge Nichole bra.

DSC03010.JPG

I usually love when my lingerie is coordinated but this time I’ve found that the mix was cute.


Maybe it’s time to talk about this bra? Let’s go for a quick review!
If you didn’t know, Tutti Rouge is a young full bust brand I affectionate for the cheeky innocence of their designs.
Frilly’s to make you feel fabulous“. According to me, their S/S 2013 slogan can easily describe the spirit of the brand , even if they are evolving from season to season and the last collection doesn’t look like the first at all. I really like Tutti Rouge but unfortunately their shipping costs to Canada are too high for my budget (and I didn’t notice a lot of sales on their website) so I don’t buy from them so much.

DSC03012.JPG

This Fiore Tempesta stockings are a bit too small for me so they really don’t make it easy for the suspender…

The Nichole bra (in 30GG) is one of my tutti exceptions and I’m glad I got it. I wore it so many times since I bought it… I have to say that the gore was so painful at first that I had to put cotton wadding between my skin and the central gore if I wanted to wear it a whole day. I ended up bending it for it can stop hurting my skin… But the positive thing about it is that it is very narrow. Well, it is positive for my close-set breasts. Nevertheless, it is now one of my favourite everyday bras. Nichole is so easy to wear!
It provides a very round shape and a very good projection. The cup are a full coverage and I like the way it cover ALL my breasts tissue. This is one of the rare bras that don’t give me the awful experience of side boobs…

DSC03006.JPG

I’m really happy it has fully-adjustable straps and even if the band is not the firmer you could find, it provides enough support to avoid to put your breasts weight on your shoulders. Also, this large three-hooks band is very comfy.
The wires are pretty wide but it is okay with me as my breasts roots are not particularly narrow.
What I love with this bra is the discreet transparency on the top of the cup and the pink touches are just at the right places to make it special.
As I said it would be quick I will not extend this review to tell you about how I love the details of this bra but you can have an idea of their cuteness with the pictures below!

jhhhhhhh

I bought the panty in a size XS, as several years ago Tutti Rouge size S was way too big for me, but this time the XS was WAY too small, and the lace of this panty (similar to the lace at the top of the cup) is not stretch at all so I don’t wear it very often. I think I could wear a S or a M with this range but as the shipping costs were expensive I didn’t exchange it.
Apart from the gore issue, the Nichole bra is one of my favorites from Tutti Rouge and I would buy it in every colors if I could spend more money in lingerie.

Do you like to mix your lingerie pieces? Or are you a proponent of coordinated underwear ?
