This is such a pretty bra! They were out of my size so I got a 32F instead, and luckily it fits! I do have a bit of looseness in the top of the cups (mostly on the left side, which is smaller), but as I am full on the bottom I expected this. I can fix it by adding a small push up pad to the bottom of the cups. The band is a tad large, but is very stretchy so the fit is fine. This bra gives a very natural projected look, akin to vintage bras but not so uplifted. Rather like a teardrop shape but ...with support. The comfort level of this bra is tops, I get no poking, digging or riding up, it stays in place and stays comfortable all day. The lace is not at all itchy, but it does occasionally peek out of lower cut tops, luckily it's pretty! I did have to adjust the straps as they don't adjust short enough for me, but on these bras I've found you can loop the elastic of the strap over the band and then hook it, no sewing or pinning required! (And yes one of them is twisted in my back view picture!) Read more 100 more words
Too wide in the cups. Too shallow at the base of the cups, causing wrinkling and downward shift over time.. Band is a little bit tight. Gaps slightly at the top of the cups. Straps are MUCH too wide for me, but I also think that is because the band is too tight and the cups are too big, so the strap placement is not optimal for me.
TUTTI ROUGE FIRST IMPRESSIONS... I love this company. Received the best customer service ever from a gorgeous online employee. Everything about Tutti Rouge is dreamy. The colors, patterns, fabrics, designs and details are unlike any other company I have ever seen on the market. They have the most unusual shades of colors and fabrics. The designs of their bras are also very unique.
However..... that being said, the shapes are all wrong (for me at least and from what I have read for a large number of people).
I am hoping that as this company matures the actual shapes of the cups will get better and better and ...I will certainly keep trying with this company for their unique designs and colors.
The size 28 back is tiny. Not so much the overall back band length but rather the length from the end of the underwires to the hooks. What this means is the underwires actually come around to the back of the bra. Almost the majority of the length of the bra both front and sides is all wire.
The underwire is almost symetrical in length. Meaning the sides are the basically the same height as the centre gore. They kinda look like bananas in shape, long and wide rather than say coconuts (curved and round). This is basically the one thing that ruins this bra for me. The wires are wide and shallow. The bottom of the cups aren't deep enough so like most photos you will see the cup doubles over and collapses on the bottom.
The lack of depth in the cups combined with the wide wires gives me a bad east west look. I almost want to pull the wires out and put another underwire in as this bra is one of the most gorgeous bras I have ever seen. The banana shape wire is all wrong especially for a petite size like a 28.
Also, in this bra my breasts are hang right out to the sides which if you look at my clothed picture looks awful. It makes my clothes boobs look unusually huge and just wrong Read more 252 more words
I love this bra. It's so pretty, but like the Liliana, the straps are far too long and need to be shortened. The band is also too big around, but I thought it might be as I usually wear a 30 band. I also usually go for an F, so as a 32F this bra is one size up from my regular size. The cups seem to fit though.
I finally got around to altering this bra, and altered the band down to a 30 (so now it's a 30FF) and reduced the very long straps to lengths that would actually fit. The fit of this bra is a bit strange - it's pretty shallow at the bottom of the cup, so there's a lot of wrinkling there for me. The rest of the cup seems to fit pretty well, though. So I'm pretty happy that I went for the bigger size, as I think that my regular size would be too small given the shallowness of the cup.
I bought this bra and thong like 10 pounds including shipping btw im not living in EU so I was very excited waiting this bra night and day. Finally I got this. And I tried. First I thought I got gain weight a lot!!!!!!! I thought myself hon you need to lose some weight tho I work out. Well I felt something wrong and I read few reviews about tutti rouge. So I decided to measure it. And band was sooooooooooooo wrong super wrong the full length of this bra was 26inches. Says its 28 it was 26. it was epic betrayal. I could fasten but I was too tight to breath. For me I had no plan to get another tuttie rouge bra at all
I am a fairly even and very projected breast shape. I have average-to-narrow roots with a slight omega shape. My best fitting bra is a Cleo Lily in 30GG.
The Birds of a Feather is designed for a wide and somewhat shallow shape - as are most of Tutti Rouge's bras. I sized up in the cups for this one, hoping to find a manageable fit, but alas it was not to be.
The bra definitely doesn't have enough projection for me - my breasts push it down a bit below the inframammary fold and create some wrinkling there.
The cups go around too far on my sides, so the ...wings feel extra high and pokey compared to a bra with less width. The straps also don't shorten quite enough for me - beware, my fellow 5'1" and/or short-torsoed friends!
On the other hand, the style is very cute and girly - perhaps a bit too much for me once I saw it in person. I think I liked the idea of it a little better than the reality in terms of aesthetics, but if pink and fluffy is your thing, this is a fantastic bra for you! Read more 88 more words
TL;DR: Band=TTS, Cups=TTS, maybe run a bit big, Shallowness=A lot. This is my second try in this bra, and I definitely need a size up. I'm typically a 30G, and this band fits great with an extender, so I'd say true to size. Cups are too. I quad out over the lace, and the apex not lining up with my apex is giving a pointy look. I'll be trying this in a 28GG!
Reviews said this runs ridiculously tight in the band and small in the cup. I found the band to actually be on the bigger side of true to size. The cups also run true to size. Runs shallow. This is such a beautiful bra, though, that I'm going to try different sizes until I find the right one!
This is a very pretty bra. The cups are half lace and half padded. I straps don't adjust very far but they are pretty with a lot of details, like little hearts. Unfortunately, the straps seem to connect right under the armpit so if you move your arms forward it's very awkward and uncomfortable.
I know this bra doesn't work for many women. I think it might be ok on me in a smaller cup size or if I had more projection or fuller on top. The cups were a bit too wide on me and the lace on the top kind of wrinkles. I didn't have the buckling problem at the bottom like many others experienced, I guess because I'm quite shallow.
