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. 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.

30 band felt like a 32. Cups and band were too big.

I got just because I was making an order for Scharminkeltje and I wanted to try. Such shame it doesnt fit! label say 30E but I would say its 32E and it runs loose in the band and is big in the cups. `the material is nice and sheer. Love the colour, is perfect for all seasons, and will not show under light colours.

It's not often when a bra arrives that I get the butterflies I had on seeing the pics - but this set really does look phenomenal. The purple is much duskier than it looks in some of the promo pics - which is great. There is pink lace on the top of each cup, and pink edging underneath each boob framing each cup. There is a leopard print bow in the centre - I usually hate and actively avoid any animal print but actually this goes quite well with the style and colours of the set.
Coordinates include a brazilian knicker which I had to size up ... to a large in, and a short which fitted fine in medium (albeit with a fairly low rise).
This is a non padded bra with a three part cup construction. The website calls it 'semi-sheer' which I guess is true - in that the bottom section is not sheer, and the top part is. The bottom section (made up of two parts) is two layers of laminate non-stretch material. The top section is also non-stretch.
The band is loose - in fact, I'm thinking I may need to start on the middle hook - so some people may want to size down. The wires are medium to slightly wider than average - just about ok for me but I wouldn't want them to be any narrower personally. They are no where near as wide as Liliana (my Eliza review will be up within the next few days hopefully so if superwide wires are what floats your breasts/boat then keep an eye out for that!). The shape is definitely best for someone who has more immediate projection than me, and I believe would be compatible for those who are full on top. I am fairly shallow and full on the bottom, but with enough swooping and scooping, and adjustment of the straps, I can still get a pretty good fit. It's not my perfect bra fit wise - but it's so beautiful and makes me feel so great it's worth it.
I would say this bra is a very similar construction/fit to Panache's Jasmine (although I take one size down (30DD) from my usual in Jasmine) - so if that works for you I'd recommend Nichole in at least one cup up from Jasmine size and possibly a band down depending on how tight you like your bras to fit. The main differences are the top section in this is not stretchy though, so I think Nichole is less accommodating for those who are FOT, and especially for those with tall roots - you can see that it seems a bit like a mismatch between my top tissue and the bra, as although I'm shallow with little on top I think my tissue is still taller than this bra ideally wants . As above, I have some slight wrinkling on the top section on my smaller boob but it doesn't cause issues with comfort or support so I am not bothered by this.
It is with a sad heart that I have to say this bra was very painful for me to wear. Foolishly I took it on holiday recently (got back last night and have never been more pleased to wear a wireless bralette today) without having worn it first as I so rarely have any major fit problems, especially with regards to the gore. I wore it on the middle hook and after a few hours had the most stabby, excruciating gore poking. I had to stuff tissue down the front of the bra to stop it cutting into my skin. I wore it 2 days later on the loosest hook, thinking this may help, and although it was better it was still very painful. I'm going to measure it for Bratabase - I'm thinking the gore must be a bad height/width combination for me that I'll investigate further.
** UPDATE: Measurements now on Bratabase - the gore is wider and taller than I am used to. I think it's actually not the height as I first thought, but the width that is more the issue for me. Be aware that for those with close set breasts, this bra may be your mortal enemy.**
In conclusion, I'm unsure how often I will wear this purely down to how shockingly uncomfortable it was, and the fact that in my heart of hearts I know it's not the best shape for me. I'm going to try and figure out the issue with the gore and see if there's anything I can do to improve the situation, as it really is a lovely bra - good quality with very wearable coordinates. Watch this space!

What a pretty bra. It is also, however, HUGE. I almost always fit perfectly into a 30E. This is large in band and cup. I am not sure if I should go with 28F or even 28E. Very disappointed after a long wait for its arrival. I will exchange it, though, as it is really lovely and I think once I find the right size it will be a favorite.
ETA: Tutti Rouge email support was great. They recommended 28E based on my measurements (I never wear 28E, 28F or 30E usually works) and I went with it. It fits pretty well, even ever so slightly big in the cup, so Tutti Rouge Nichole Bra runs big in the cup.
