My first try of this brand. I chose Nichole because I had read the band was stretchy plus it was 15 Euros at Tutti Rouge online. I was not wrong about the stretchy band as I can get it on easily and can almost wear it on the second set of hooks immediately. This distorts the cup too much so I stayed on the first set of hooks. The bra, on my shape, is okay. Since I am FOB and have soft tissue, the bra lifts then flattens my breasts into a round side to side shaping. The seams of the cup also cut in and ...give a strange indentation. It really is not that noticeable though. I like the shape for under tshirts if I do not want to be all front, lifted and center shaped. Sometimes the girls need to be a bit more inconspicuous.
This bra would be great on firmer tissue and more full all over shaping. Considering who Tutti Rouge markets to it does make sense. I will wear this as a daily comfy bra. Read more 73 more words
Tutti Rouge was kind enough to gift me a Nichole as well as a Lilliana after I sent them my review of my too large 30E Nichole. We decided I should try out a 30D, I perhaps sized down a bit too much. I love the the Noir/Creme colorway though.
Mostly it's a good bra, the center gore just dug at my sternum so bad I placed a cotton pad under it to make it more comfortable. I really wish there was a nice all nude version of this. This is one of the first bras that really didn't poke under my arms.
This bra runs huge, people. It runs a full band and full cup size large, almost 2 cup sizes large I'd guess. The cups are very, very deep. It's narrow and projected, the only such shape offered by Tutti Rouge. I have listed this bra, it's currently altered to a 28FF-G but is reversible so it would fit a 32F. I'm sad it's not a perfect fit because aesthetically it's beautiful. Full review on blog!
My current size is a 32FF, and I sister sized to a 30G since I read this runs stretchy. This fits close to a 32FF or possibly between a 32FF and a 32G.
This bra runs a band size large, and a little large in the cups as well (maybe less than half a cup?). I can't quite fill out the tops of the cups (especially near the center), but I'm not sure if I could get away with a full cup size smaller.
The Mint colorway is so pretty and delicate. I would love to try this in a 30FF (if only I could find one).
This bra runs WAY off from the labeled size! I am about a 32F and these cups fit, but the band still rides up! It measures at 32.75. I will probably have to get it altered soon as it rides up a bit even on the last hook. The cup construction reminds me a lot of unpadded Cleos, but more closed on top. If you're FOB and you like Cleos but maybe they gape on you, you'll love this bra. It actually seems very similar to my Cleo Della Balconnet Bra (9111) , with slightly shorter cups. The cups on this bra feel light as a ...feather, I think it'll be great for summertime. I get a small diagonal wrinkle on my smaller side, but it's not a big deal. I'm just happy that the top actually lays flat on me! It also feels comfortable and the design is very cute. Wires are narrow and cups are deep. My one comfort issue is that the wires are quite hard, I will probably end up bending the gore out because it stabs me a little. Read more 78 more words
This is a very close fit. The cup is a tad small for me, but my 28E Nichole is a teeny bit big. I think 28DD would work best for me in this style. I am almost always a 28F or 30E, so this one is not quite true to size. Narrow wires, which is good for me. Mint color is lovely.
This bra is SO gorgeous. The minty blue/green color fabric has a shiny finish. Even the straps are shiny. The delicate cream colored lace, contrast bow, and gold colored hardware go together nicely and look elegant.
The wires feel firm and do not distort upon minor stretching of the band. The construction of the bra looks excellent.
The sizing of this (SS 2015 model) is waaaaay off. The band is stretchy and therefore the fit feels loose- the 28 band feels more like a Claudette 30 band. The cups are narrow, which I like, but very deep for this size. In my opinion, this 28D bra fits more like a ...30DD, and would work for someone who needs a narrow and projected cup. The size is so far off for me that I'm looking to either sell this or I'll return it.
The wires might be painful. It is difficult for me to tell since the fit is poor on me and I only tried it on briefly. The gore is higher than other bras that I'm used to. It seemed that on the tightest hooks, the outsides and bottoms of the wires might dig into my ribcage, and on the loosest hooks, the gore might dig in. I'm not sure how this would wear through the day or be affected by breaking in and/or bending the wires.
I'm sad about the manufacturer's approach to sizing this bra because it is really beautiful and I wish I could wear it. Read more 138 more words
