This bra is like the other Tutti Rouges I've tried, a pleasant surprise. This time, that's because the bra is a half cup that 1) actually attempts to stay in the IMF of my projected, full-on-bottom, narrow boobs; 2) doesn't have comically wide-set straps for a 30-band bra, just because it's a large cup; and 3) looks cool. Every time I put it on, I think, 'damn. I love this bra.'
The band is quite firm, the firmest one I've ever gotten for this brand. I think a 28-band person could get away with it, and some days I wear the bra with an extender. Unlike other, more mesh-based Tutti Rouges, I don't think it will stretch much. It just seems very secure and has a lot more fabric to it.
The cups are true-to-size. They are definitely not full-coverage, which can be hard to find in this size range for me with a good fit. They offer a little more coverage than other half cups. This is because the straps are not attached way out at the armpits, and the upside-down V attachment style takes away from boob showiness. Even though the lift and support are lofty in this bra, it's not big on cleavage. Personally, all that is fine for me because I don't even own any low cut shirts. 😂 I just don't feel like I need my whole boob covered in every bra to be supported properly (looking at you, Panache, Fantasie, etc.)! This bra is actually super-supportive. The padding is very light and breathable, no nipple showthrough but no added bulk either. The wires are wider than my narrow roots, but they don't bother me, even though I'm sensitive about wires.
It's also SO flattering. It is minimizing without flattening me, it is to my taste aesthetically, and it is a half cup that actually loves me back, the rarest bra find of all for my particular boob situation. The extra strap thing that stopped being interesting to me back in 2015 being entirely detachable is a welcome touch. You can attach it to the lower strap hoops, or to the heart-shaped strap sliders if you're short like me. The part where its center piece attaches to the gore is not visible once attached. However, my detachable strap started unwraveling the day I got the bra, so that...sucks. Even though I was never gonna use it, I did pay for it!
This bra is so fun for me. It reminds me of what I miss about Tutti Rouge pre-Rougette: the playfulness, the welcome experimentation with full bust design. The size range...
The model I got is the older, original one. I tried to buy one the same size from ASOS. But the one that's out now, from Rougette-era Tutti, is cheaper feeling, has less compelling black overlay, and is just not the same as this original model. It doesn't even fit me. So for this perfect one, maybe try Ebay or your local boutique.
