    I really adore the unique design of Amelie. The way the cup fabric continues into straps looks novel and amazing, and the embroidered lace is absolutely beautiful and looks like pearls. This bra is super sexy but still sophisticated!

    The construction is quite delicate and not necessarily the most supportive (but maybe that’s not really the point). The straps and band are thin, and the fabrics feel quite stretchy overall. The lower, sheer mesh sits completely smoothly on my body, which is rare for an unpadded bra. The lace on top is not attached to the mesh and it needs to be adjusted when putting on, but it mostly ... stays in place after that. The shape I get in this bra is slightly pointy, and I feel that a major contributor to this is the thick seam of the lace fabric that lies at the most projected part of the cup. There’s side sling made of white mesh inside the cups, and I think might be less practical for darker skin tones.

    The cups definitely have a lot of projection! The wires follow my narrow roots for the most part, but get a bit too wide towards the top. They feel pretty firm as well. There is an elastic trim at the top edge of the cups that cuts in slightly on my FoT boobs. It doesn’t look horrible, but I think Amelie would suit more FoB shapes better. The band is tight, completely passable as a 28, and I can wear it on the loosest hook. The gore tacks very firmly. Despite being a plunge, it’s a bit too high or wide for me, and it’s already sitting at the edge of my breast tissue. The gore is my least favorite part of this bra.

    In the end I rarely wear this bra because it’s not exactly the most comfortable or practical. But it still makes me feel pretty fabulous.

    • It's pretty , reminds me of the wacoal retro chic but except in all black .http://www.wacoal-america.com/retro-chic-full-figure-underwire-bra-wacoal-855186-p.html

    • If you like the style but wanted to try other colorways

    • @lvp That's pretty! I like the jade one. But it seems to start at 32 band and I'm 28 usually so I think it would be too big. :/

      I have always loved the look of this bra. It's almost like a triangle bra and I secretly want a triangle bra that works so badly (okay, not really a secret I guess lol). I am sort of disappointed that they chose a white side sling - why white? I think black would have been a better choice.
      The combination of patterns on this is really something, though (the mesh, embroidery/appliqué). I'm glad to hear your thoughts on its comfort and where it cuts in at the top. Thank you!

    • kerniss I'm glad you found it helpful! :) It's an incredible looking bra definitely! And quite a rare look in this size range.
      I also find the color of the side sling quite weird. I guess that they want to keep the look transparent, but that only works on a limited user base. And it's a bit difficult to see it in the stock pictures.

    • Basically your review means that I know it won't work for me :') But I am glad to know that ahead of time! I just got to keep looking for bras that look like this but are cut differently (oh the trials LOL).
      I know what you mean with how limiting it is! For me, it would be great because I am so darn pale. But I'm way paler than most people, even my dad who is really lacking in pigment (blond eyelashes and all)! So it really only works for a small percentage of people. I wouldn't have known about the sling otherwise and I'm curious if it's the same in all the other colors of this bra. Hmm...

    • kerniss I think it's the same in all colors, you can see that it's a bit too pale even for Figleaves' model http://www.figleaves.com/uk/product/FIG-133519/Lulu-Tout-Amelie-Underwired-Bra-DDH It's paler than my skin as well, although it doesn't really show in the pictures.
      I hope you'll find a triangle bra that fits! I can then go and buy the same one haha. This doesn't really work for me either, I just haven't had the heart to get rid of it because it's so beautiful. And I wasn't very bra-educated when I bought it.
      Actually I haven't really found a comfortable/fitting unpadded bra yet. In addition to everything cutting in at the top, I feel like the wires are pressing into my ribs more since the cups are taking less pressure. Or something like that. I think I'll have to try Comexim's unpadded bras.

    • Omg this bra is stunning <3 how is the projection either side of the gore?

    • Hi slowb ! Well it has good immediate projection, but maybe not so much center projection. The cups want to bring breasts forward but also keep them separated. The gore is also relatively wide, and the trim on the cups may cut into center fullness near the gore (it does on me a bit). Did I answer your question? :D

    • 1

      That is SUPER helpful, thank you :) ohhh it would be a bad fit on me for so many reasons, but holy guacamole, it is SO pretty...I might just get it anyway!

    • slowb Who knows, maybe it will surprise you. :) And it's not the most expensive luckily!

    Didn't fit

    Reviews of this bra weren't too good, but I loved the colour and the design too much and decided to give it a go once it went on sale.
    I'm happy I did, because the fit isn't nearly as dreadful as I expected. First off, the band is firm and perfect. The cups give me a vintage-y shape, very pointy but lifted and chic. The gore is slightly too wide for me and is sitting on boob tissue, but it's not too bad because the gore height is rather low (and I have this issue with ALL BRAS except my Ewa's).
    The lace is gorgeous and so different ... from all the usual designs. I'm not particularly bothered by the top layer not being attached to the cup. The wires are too wide for me, perhaps the widest I own after the widest 30G - Fauve » Maya Full Cup Bra With Side Support (0272)
    but it is still wearable with the help of the inner side-sling.

    Overall I recommend this bra for very projected, medium-rooted FoB boobs who have a soft spot for a retro silhouette.

    The band is tight but not too tight, I find it quite comfortable. I fill the cups nicely, tiny bit of wrinkling with my smaller boob. Biggest issue is the non-secured embroidered parts of the cup, they tend to slide and wrinkle because they're not anchored to the top of the cup in any way. Gorgeous colour and style, though!

      Figleaves has GOT to stop with this unattached lace layer garbage on their house brands. It's killed Lulu Tout for me. I'd literally buy at least 5 of LTs bras because they're gorgeous, tight in the band, narrow wired, projected - everything I need. But I cannot stand the outer layer of the cup not being attached to the inner layer. I even attached the two layers together in my Fleur Rose and it still didn't look right.

      I know right? Fleur Rose was my dream bra and the free-flowing lace destroyed her for me.

    POOR FIT!

    This bra is miserable. The band was tight enough, it felt more of a 30 than a 32, but it felt like most of the support was coming from the straps.
    The 3-part cup is made in strechy and very thin mesh. The stiches were so elastic that it offered absolutely no support. I felt like the cups were maybe a little bit too big for me, so even if I was fiilling the cups, the outer fabric (the one with patterns-details) was not filled. It was like 'floating' over my boobies. under a t-shirt, this panel would just move around and wrinkle.

    Only positive aspect: it is cute.

    Didn't fit

    I had such high hopes for this bra which I got to replace the too small 30DD - Lulu Tout » Amelie Balcony Bra (a-dd) (133518) I had. It's beautiful, but sadly not even close to fitting me. I might have gotten away with it but the apex is very high, probably at least half an inch above where I need it to be. The lace overlay's seaming sadly exacerbates the appearance of this issue. I think this bra would give a bit of a pointy shape, which I don't mind. It's a little big overall, but I think it's mostly a shape issue. The gore is one of the most painful I've encountered. It would probably be okay with some bending if the rest of it fit. The band runs firm but not as tight as the A-DD cut, if you're a solid 30 you might need an extender.

    This bra is beautiful! It's got a really unique neckline that I've never really seen before on a bra, but that is more forgiving and makes for a really flattering, comfortable fit. Definitely worth the cheaper price tag.

    The band is tighter, if you're struggling to figure out your size, I recommend you size down. Also, I'm constantly having trouble with the cups being too wide (especially in the otherwise excellent Panache brands), but these Lulu Tout bras are more narrow and beautifully fit my narrower, deep breasts. The overall shape is more pointy than I tend to get in Panache styles, but adjusting the straps fixes this to ... where it's not noticeable under clothes, as long as you wear tops/dresses that are loose enough and thick enough over your breasts that you can't see the embroidery (aka if you couldn't tell from figleaves' photos, this bra obviously won't work with cheap/sheer/tight tops or anything that'll normally require the molded cup t-shirt bras. I tried it under a slightly thicker jersey dress from Ross and it looked fine).

    I loved this bra so much, but I needed two new bras. Since I couldn't find anything else on figleaves' website that fit this price range and looked as gorgeous, I ended up buying two bras in sister sizes. This specific review is for the Electric Blue in the larger band (32GG), but I also bought a black one in 30H. With an extender on the black one, both work fine. And honestly, both colors are beautiful. The deep dark blue with the beautiful turquoise stitching is vibrant and gives off a playfully sexy mermaid vibe, while the black is more subtle, slimming, and classicly sexy. Both have several sheer layers that make the overall effect only slightly opaque. It really was beautifully designed.

    My only real gripe about this bra is the sound. The cheap plastic "hardware" that connects the straps to the bra was where the inexpensive price point really shows: every time I move, the bra creaks. At first I thought this was because the band was too tight, but I'm pretty sure it's the cheap hardware. In any case, it might be embarrassing in the wrong situation, and it's making me a little nervous that the whole thing is eventually going to snap. I'm going to have to wear it around the house a few times before I can trust it out in public.
