AD – PR Product | Ah Wednesday, the middle of the week already! Happy Hump Day! It’s been a couple of days, and already February is beginning to drag. In an effort to perk myself up a bit, I’ve decided to start wearing my “going out” clothes around the house, a bit of makeup, and (most importantly) comfortable yet pretty underwear! For that reason, I wanted to take today to talk to you about Tutti Rouge.
I was offered the opportunity to receive a PR parcel from Tutti Rouge in exchange for an honest review here on the blog. To be honest, I had never heard of the brand before. However, being someone with a fuller bust means I’m always on the lookout for comfortable yet affordable underwear. That doesn’t look like something your granny would wear. So naturally, I jumped at the chance.
About Tutti Rouge
Tutti Rouge began in the summer of 2012 with a team of already experienced designers and manufacturers of edgy and sexy underwear for and on behalf of many well recognised and familiar global brands. Deciding to put their own ideas out there and include the girls with bigger boobs, the team developed their ideas to launch in the Summer of 2013. Tutti Rouge do not make bras for smaller cups, and their expertise in this specific area of DD and upwards, is realised in the garment you put on in the morning. Every bra and knicker they do, is designed in the UK by a fabulous team of Lingerista`s. They really do care about their customers, and love to receive feedback!
My Experience of Tutti Rouge
As I was saying, I consider myself to have a fuller bust. It’s not in the DD+ category, however my back width makes it harder to find bras with enough support that are comfortable, pretty, and not too expensive. When first browsing Tutti Rouge online, I was overwhelmed at the choices – everything looked amazing! Plus the fact that it wasn’t all fuller busts on women with that perfect hourglass figure that seem to haunt the other websites you may browse when underwear shopping. There were people who looked like me! With bralettes, bodies, and normal bras that could be worn for any occasion, my fingers didn’t know where to click first. The end result was that I received the Cydney Bralette and Briefs (in turquoise) and the Hallie Body.
Tutti Rouge’s Hallie Body
As someone who’s semi new to wearing bodysuits, I was immediately drawn to the Hallie Body. Designed to be seen, the Hallie body provides with with cute, classy coverage, and luxurious lace that just has to be shown off! Described on the website as Tutti Rouge’s go-to support bodysuit, the under-band is added for extra support and comfort while the lace insert helps the coverage. Plus, the edges are scalloped so there’s no VPL ladies!
I looked in the mirror when I first put this on and was both delighted and somewhat disappointed with it at the same time. The coverage provided by the lace was perfect up top – just what I’d hoped for! However, the bottom half was a little too cutaway for me to feel comfortable sharing a photo of me wearing just the suit on my blog. On the other hand, I love the look of pairing the Hallie bodysuit with a pair of high-rise leather-look trousers and a blazer! Possibly not how it’s meant to be worn, but as I said – this suit is made to be seen! And when you’re single and living with your parents in lockdown, that’s the only way it’ll ever be seen. Priced at £24, this is one bodysuit I will be wearing any time I need that little confidence boost of “damn girl”!
The Cydney Set
Okay first of all I fell in love with the colour of the Cydney bralette and briefs! Let’s talk about the briefs first, because I just love them.
Honestly, I cannot get enough of these briefs. The colour is amazing, the cut is super comfy, and I love a high waistband! If I wasn’t on another no-spend month, I would definitely be stocking up on multiples pairs of these briefs from Tutti Rouge. At £10 per brief, I can’t really justify buying enough to replace my entire underwear drawer, but the temptation is real. The spotted mesh and caged detailing on the front make them feel sexy whilst leaving it to the imagination. With the Cydney Briefs on, I felt I could take on the world! If only they came in more colours, because you can bet I would purchase every single one available.
The matching bralette is the ultimate tease with the crossover cups – perfect for teasing a significant other or boosting your own confidence! Again, the colour is fantastic. I’ve always loved bright, bold colours of bras – so much so at one point I owned 18! And while wearing more sedate colours in the office, this turquoise bralette leaves you feeling seductive and smart when work under a jumper or any top really. The hook & eye fastening and adjustable straps ensure maximum support, while the non-wired band ensures comfort all day long. Keyhole & cross over front was added to ensure you’re comfy AND cute! Just a word of warning – if your significant other isn’t great with bra clasps, maybe one with as many hooks (there are 5 of them) as the Cydney bralette isn’t the way to go unless you’re wanting to be the ultimate tease!
I do have to admit, it took me a few attempts at wearing the bralette to get the straps adjusted to the right length for me. As someone used to underwire and not exactly against it, I felt a tad saggy the first couple of times I wore this out. However, once I found that perfect strap setting, I was over the moon! Look out old Katie, there’s a super sexy more confident Katie in town when the Cydney set is on! With the support of a sports bra, but without the feel or look of one, I am in love.

Overall, I was very pleased with the products Tutti Rouge kindly sent me to try. I was a little apprehensive, as many of the sets on the website are a lot more sultry than I would personally wear, however they are stunning to look at! The full Cydney set would set you back £30 in total. Which, considering the cost of a similar bra from the high street, really is not expensive!
With student discount, international sizing guides, and underwear to suit every shape and size, I can honestly say I would recommend any fuller busted lady look at Tutti Rouge for their next bit of online retail therapy!
