Me: tall roots reaching collarbone, very close-set (touching), average to narrow width, shallow, splayed east-west, FOT or even (unsure), centre-full, high set, short torso, broad shoulders, 26" snug UB and 34" leaning bust.
This fits me perfectly in the cups, not too deeply projected, not too shallow. The cups are not notoriously wide like many other TR bras; they are 5" even, which is perfect for me. (Is that narrow or average for this bra size??) That said, it is not as supportive as I'd ideally want. I hike the straps up way tight to compensate but then they try to saw off my arms. I'll try using a ...Rixie clip to tighten the band, which is TTS, to see if that helps. The fabric is mesh but delicate and soft and not stretchy. There are side support mesh panels sewn in. The cool hot pink colour is great.
update: support isn't great with this bra, i guess due to the mesh fabric. as well the mesh band is pretty stretchy, like a freya, so for support ill use a rixie clip with this bra. otherwise its so cute and the cups fit perfectly. Read more 85 more words
The bra is gorgeous in red! Unfortunately, 28E is a bit too small. It flattens my shape and boobs escape to the armpits. The wires are also not as wide as I expext from Tutty Rouge. the center gore is too tall and rough and cuts into my ribcage. The underwire also cuts into my bigger breast on the side.
I don't have enough center fullness for this bra. However, it fits good on the sides. Cups are tall, stretchy and give good rouned shape. The back is nice. I have gaping in the center, but it can easily be adjusted with a needle. The main problem is the wires which are tall and rough and cut into my ribcage in the center.
The cups fit me well on this Tutti Rouge bra. The wires felt like they were in an odd position as I started to put it on, and I nearly didn't bother continuing. In the end I did and as it happens it fits quite well in many ways. The wires felt ok once it was on, although the centre gore was too high for me and dug in. Also the wires were too wide set. The band however was true to size.
This bra does fit well, however, due to the way the upper lace part of the cup is made, it gives me a strange not quite round, not quite square shape. Like it kind of flattens out the area around my nipples, but rounds out the tissue above and below them. If I play around with the positioning of my boobs in the cups, I can make it less noticeable. I wore it with a cami and a thin cardigan and it looked fine. The cups are very open on top and do not dig in to my FoT boobs. The lace at the top of the cups ...is soft and there is just the thinnest strip of clear elastic at the tops of the cups. The band is comfortably snug and the elastic does not pinch. Normally, I find too much undercup lace to be irritating, but the lace on the bra is so soft, it's barely noticeable. Because the band fits so well, the narrow straps are not a problem for me.
Side note, the matching bikini panties are very low, so beware if you don't want to show butt cleavage. Read more 84 more words
This bra fits me so comfortably that I really wish it fit me technically. My main issue with it is that it's too shallow for me (surprising no one -- I've got projected boobs and I've yet to wear a half cup with enough projection for me). I didn't realize how bad the problem was initially, partially because this is the only unpadded half-cup I've ever worn. I can make it work at first, but over the course of the day, the cup buckles under the force of my boobs, resulting in an unflattering rounded square shape. This effect was likely exacerbated by the fact that the bra ...was 1-2 cup sizes too small for me. The wires also feel a little tall.
I found the band to be unexpectedly true to size, considering all the conflicting reviews out there for this brand. It's the perfect firmness for me on the loosest setting. Also, the gore tacks amazingly well, even though the cup is at least a size too small for me. I'd buy Tutti Rouge bras again; this is one of the best-scaled ill-fitting bra I've ever bought.
The raised polka-dots on the cup weren't visible under a shirt, unlike Cleo's, but the lace on top of the cups is. If you're a bra MacGuyver, you can probably remove it, but the polkadot layer and lace applique are part of the same sheet of mesh.
I really like the crisp pale green of this bra. It was a bit unusual to have just a vertical seam in a transparent bra, and I think this contributes to the unusual look: the gore appears almost punched in to my sternum. The bra minimizes and rounds, basically turning my projection into height and upper fullness. This is evident visually as well; my nipples even appear elongated vertically. With this bra, I get upper rounding all the way to my collarbone, which is normally just tails of spence as I am FoB. Size up in the cup for this bra, just like ...the Betty and Liliana. I thought the band was fine in the smaller of my two usual sizes, but I might wear it with a single hook of extender.
I've noticed that this bra doesn't have quite enough projection for me. Just above where the nipple is, I bulge up and toward the gore. This is most noticeable in side profile. My breast is still within the bra, I'm not quadboobing out the top, and I already sized up one cup size. It's similar to the look I get when I wear a bra with an overly constraining diagonal seam (although this bra has only vertical seams). It is somewhat visible from the front as well when I'm only in my bra. Thus the bra does not give the nicest shape if you have a lot of projection, although it is otherwise a nice bra.

I got this bra in both 34GG and 34H because I have found that 34H is the right size for me in the Liliana and Betty, but in many other Tutti Rouge bras, I need 34GG. It turned out this was one of the ones I needed to size up in, so I did not bother to try on the 34GG.
