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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

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!

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.

Mildly similar to the Parfait Kimberly in terms of fit-- gore wouldn't lay flat, breasts pushed the cups down, and I felt like basically none of my breast was in the cup.

This is a gorgeous bra, I just wish it fit. I don't understand what's going on. I can't fill the bottom at all, even though the wires are super wide as are the straps.
It's beautiful, with eyelash lace, delicate straps, and Tutti Rouge branded on the strap.

This is a beautiful balconette/half cup bra (I'm not entirely sure which, see pictures) with a vertical seam on the cups. It's trimmed in bright pink lace and so very, very pretty. I'm wearing it with an extender but otherwise I like the way it fits. The straps have a cute heart-shaped clip for adjustments. However, the straps are set a bit TOO wide and slip off one of my shoulders.
This bra doesn't bring me "front and center" like some others (the EM Porcelanka comes to mind). I don't fill out the bottom of the cup. But it's pretty and feminine, and I feel supported. It really isn't a good fit for me but it's so darn pretty.
