From the sneak peeks at Moda, to the tantalising Instagram snaps of gorgeous colours and fun frills, to the very first reviews in my RSS feed, it feels like I’ve been waiting to be Tutti Rouge for ever (and ever, and ever).
It’s pink – very pink – but a brilliant, bright bubblegum that I love and have sorely missed since the death of my favourite Freya Jolie. There’s nothing like a shocking pink bra to work as armour against a cloudy day. With simple ribbon and bow details, Lilliana is fun but not fussy – for me the perfect level of frill for every day.
The band of my (go to starter size) 30G was firm, with two back hooks and the skinniest straps I’ve ever had on a G cup bra – makes a change from the standard issue F+ strap width and perfect for vest tops (unless you live in North Holland like me, and vest tops are a distant memory of summer holidays long past…).
Fit wise, Lilliana was pretty great. At first glance the cleavage she gives is deceptively basic, because with a deep plunge in the lower cup on closer inspection (shirt off) she’s pretty spectacular. The sizing was perfect but my cups were definitely at capacity – on a ‘bigger’ day I’d be veering in to quadraboob territory. But who cares about those days – an infectiously vibrant treat of a bra deserves a holiday one in a while…
Inexpensive, fun, and kicking off with a bold and wide range of sizes Tutti Rouge has definitely won a new fan in B4J. Can’t wait for Betty (and the rest!) to roll out later this year.
