I've been obsessed with this bra since I first saw photos of it, like 6 months before it was available to buy. Unfortunately they sold out almost immediately of my regular size (32F) and I couldn't find it anywhere else. I was pretty sad about it, but then decided that since my left boob is larger than my right, that a 32FF would probably fit it alright and I could deal with the looseness on my right side. Although the cups are a slight bit too large, I really don't care. I love the way this looks. It's even cuter in person than in the photos. The lace trim is actually a dark pink, not red as I initially thought, and it's adorable. It's probably my favorite thing that Tutti Rouge has put out so far.

Betty abounds with feminine and flirty details - the lacy frill along the bottom of the band and top of the cup, the creamy silk with poppies in pink and pale blue (the fabric extends up the straps for a charming peek-a-boo), the 3 gathering gores at the base, and of course the signature heart-shaped strap adjusters. Tutti Rouge quality is fully expressed in this bra. The padding is thin enough to flex but enough to hide those nips, the lining is oh-so-soft cotton, the gore narrow, the wings low and she is luxuriously comfortable. She has a very retro, pin-up look that on the right person would ... be devastating! Unfortunately, that person is not me. The band is verrrry stretchy (tightest hook for me) and the wires are just too wide, flattening my close-set girls and pushing them outwards. The shape seems to be a hybrid half cup/balcony, both of which usually work for me but Betty is also shallow and I am projected so I quadboob - it's just a complete shape mis-match. I think Betty would be adorable for someone with wide and shallow roots, possibly low set. I also think this 32 would fit a 34. I am sad because Betty is such a sweetheart!

BAND RUNS TRUE TO SIZE. I always hear Tutti Rouge runs super tight, but both that I’ve tried (Betty and Birds of a Feather) run true to size in the band. I’m usually a 30G, full on bottom. This fastens with room to spare on the tightest hook, I could definitely use a 30, maybe even a 28 with an extender for the first little while. The cups fit-ish, but the gore doesn’t tack and when I push it, I get quadboobage, so I think I could size up in the cup too. I wore it for about an hour and didn’t notice any orange in a glass. If I notice any next time I wear it, I’ll update. Usual size: 30G. Ideal size in this bra: 28H

The Betty is a lovely bra, and gives a wonderful shape. However, I sister sized up to a 32FF from my typical 30G in Freya and Cleo bras because I'd read a lot of reviews saying the band ran really tight. I usually wear Cleos with an extender for the first couple of months, but I can wear Freyas comfortably right away on the loosest hooks. I need bras that stretch to ~32in on my 30.5in snug/29in tight underbust, but unfortunately Betty stretches all the way to 34 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
I also tried the Liliana in 30GG, but the band on that was super tight for a 30 (stretched to ~29in). Both the Liliana and the Betty also ran small for me in the cups. I think my ideal TR size would be 30GG in the Betty and 32GG in Liliana.
