Review of Tutti Rouge “Nichole” in 30GG – Testissä Tutti Rougen “Nichole”

3 Jun

Hiya everyone! Life has been a bit busy lately but I’m gonna use this extra bit of time to review something that I really like. I have been a bit impatient to try on the new ss14 styles of Tutti Rouge and was thrilled when Finnish online store Lumingerie gave me a chance to review one of their spring goodies. Lumingerie stocks only a few styles per brand but the owner has a great taste and had picked the lovely Nichole to be a part of their stock. Nichole is a Tutti Rouge continuity style that will appear next autumn in lovely rich tones, it’s a true classic already. So, let’s dig a little deeper and see how the Nichole does as a part of my everyday wardrobe…

The design: I like the simplicity but also the details of Nichole. It’s a stunning bubblegum pink colour paired with traditional black, a striking combo that makes the set look interesting. I am always stunned by the amount of detailing Jessica puts in her designs: there is a little leopard print bow on the centre gore featuring a little pink heart to perfect the fun and girly look of the bra. Also I really like the way the black trimming and lace kind of circulates around the whole bra from the wiring to the edge of the cups and the band.

This bra gives a phenomenal shape – it’s very rounded and uplifted, almost exaggerated. I love this bra under clothing and how it makes my boobs look like lovely little (or big, I don’t know..) apples. The constuction keeps my breasts in front of me instead of splaying the boobs towards my sides. The bra is an unpadded three-part cup construction style very similar to Cleo bras such as Marcie which will make this bra an instant hit among us Cleo unpadded style lovers.

The Fit: There has been a lot of complaints about the fit of TR bras and I continue to be amazed by the amount of them – I have never had problems with their fit except with the AW13 version of Betty which I tried on briefly at work (it was way too shallow for me). However, I do think the fit of this bra shows a lot of improvement towards a more deeper and narrower cup style. I do like it since it gives my boobs a lot more forward projection and the cups fit nicely on my ever-growing boobs.

I got my Nichole in 30GG which is my regular size with most of the brands I wear excluding Lepel and Gossard. I have always worn my normal size with TR so I can definitely state that this bra runs according to their other styles. The band is snug yet comfy and features three hooks and eyes for maximum support. The straps are fully adjustable as with TR Liliana but unfortunately they feel a bit widely set though with my broad shoulders, I’m coping fine. The cups fit quite normally but as said, they feel quite a lot deeper than my previous Tutti Rouge styles, eg compared to the Frankie. The cups are non-stretchy material and have a stiff trimming in the edge so very FOT breast might need to size up or skip altogether. However, my breasts are quite full-on-top and I have no digging in whatsoever.

Comfort: I must admit I had some serious issues with comfort at first, which made me put off this review a bit. I wanted to see how the bra softened up and luckily it did, a lot. The centre gore was the worst when I first put the bra on; it was literally stabbing my sternum and I couldn’t wear the bra for several hours without hurting. I started to wear the bra only for short periods and it turned out fine after a couple of wears – I can honestly say the gore is not stabbing me at anymore it feels rather comfy.

The materials are a bit scratchy but I don’t feel like they irritate my skin as I expected them to. The band feels really comfortable and stretchy enough even though I’m building back muscle all the time. I feel like the band doesn’t cause me a horrific back bulge like some other bras. Also the straps are a nice width so they support me just the way they need to and don’t usually fall off my shoulders even though they are quite widely set.

I love Tutti Rouge knickers – they are so flattering and comfy, and on the other hand quite practical as well. Nichole is meant for everyday wear which makes the regular brief a great choice to co-ordinate the bra (I got mine in size Small). The panties are sheer but cover my butt quite well and sit at a nice height – no too low or high. If you ever buy a TR bra, please do consider the panties too!

How did you like Nichole? Any of you considering buying Tutti Rouge this or next season? Let me know in the comments! xx Disclosure: This set was generously gifted by Lumingerie. All opinions are my own.

SUOMEKSI: Olen kovasti odottanut Tutti Rougen kevään malleja, joten olin tosi innoissani saadessani Lumingerielta testiin uuden purkkapinkin Nichole-setin. Lumingerien valikoimissa on aina parhaimmisto useammalta eri merkiltä ja tällä kertaa varastoon oli valikoitunut kaunis tyttömäinen Nichole. Nicholesta tuleekin ensi syksynä lisää upeampia tummia sävyjä, joten kannataa pistää malli vähintään korvan taakse jos pinkki ei ihan nappaa!

Itse olen aivan kympillä pinkki-fani, joten väri upposi kyllä ihan täysillä. Lisäksi musta koristenauha ja pitsi antavat potkua tyttömäiselle värille ja lisäävät setin kiinnostavuutta. Jessicalla on mahtava tyylitaju ja hän osaakin aina yllättää suunnitelemmalla mitä suloisempia pieniä yksityiskohtia! Nicholen keskiosassa on hauska leopardikuosinen rusetti ja rusetissa vielä pienenpieni sydän. Kangas on melko tukevan tuntuista meshiä, josta näkyy hieman läpi.

Nicholen kupit on koottu kolmesta eri osasta, joka antaa sille todella pyöreän melkein Cleomaisen muodon. Itse kuulun ainakin Cleon Mercien faneihin ja Nicholesta on syntynyt kyllä sille oikein mainio kilpasisko. Rinnat tuntuvat olevan todella eteenpäin suuntaavat kupeissa ja syvyyttäkin riittää enemmän kuin monissa aikaisemmissa Tutti Rougen malleissa. Koossani 65GG tuntuu olevan juuri oikean kokoiset kupit sekä ympärys, joten luokittelisin istuvuuden suurinpiirtein samanlaiseksi kuin muissakin brittimerkeissä. Kaarituet ovat melko keskivertoa mitoitusta, joten osuvat minulla juuri oikeaan kohtaan. 65-ympärys tuntuu jämäkältä mutta ei kuitenkaan liian tiukalta – se ei esimerkiksi muodosta selkään ikäviä makkaroita vaikka tukeekin erittäin hyvin.

Aluksi rintsikat tuntuivat todella jäykiltä päällä eikä todellakaan voi sanoa että olisivat olleet liian mukavat. Useimmat rintsikat kuitenkin löystyvät päällä muutaman käyttökerran jälkeen, joten odottelin josko rintalastaani pistävät kaarituet pehmenisivät ja menettäisivät jäykkyytensä käytössä. Onneksi näin kävi ja nyt rintsikat tuntuvat melko mukavilta ja sopivat useammankin tunnin käyttöön! Alushousut TR:llä ovat aina yksi setin kivoimmista puolista eivätkä pettäneet tälläkään kertaa – ne ovat niin mukavat, sievät kuin käytännöllisetkin. Suosittelen siis ostamaan koko setin, sillä kyllä nämä hömppiksen peruspikkarit voittavat 100-0!

Nichole rintsikat löytyy Lumingerielta edulliseen 39€ hintaan, alkkarit kustantavat 19€. Koissa riittää hyvin, rintsikat löytyvät kokohaitarilla 60-85 DD-HH ja alushousut S-2XL. Mitäs te olette mieltä setistä ja joko omasta kaapista löytyy Tutti Rougea? Jättäkäähän kommentia, ois mukava kuulla!

      Ja painoa en tosiaan tiiä kun on syömishäiriötausta niin en käy puntarilla.

        Sama täällä, lapsena/nuorena sairastin anoreksiaa (6 vuotta).
        Sen vuoksi rintani eivät kasvaneetkaan (olin 10- vuotias kun sairastuin). Viime vuonna hankin luonnollisen kokoiset implantit (kuten mitoistani huomaa, harva uskoisi näitä silikoneiksi).

        On tosiaan harmi, että monet eivät ymmärrä mitä seurauksia sillä sairaudella voi olla. Siksi itsekin puhun asiasta aika aivoimesti, jotta ihmiset tietäisivät enemmän anoreksiasta. Kiva että olet osannut ottaa implantit hyvällä harkinnalla, monella saattaa mennä överiksi kun ahneus iskee 🙂

    I love Tutti, but the Nichole is my least favorite so far. I am slightly full on top, with medium/narrow roots and medium projection. I prefer lower wires and not too tight bands. Surprisingly, the Liliana works well, & the Sophia too. The Betty also, in a band size up.

    But the Nichole’s wires are much more narrow than the other styles. Almost 4cm more narrow than Liliana! It’s also taller at the armpit. It fit a lot like Cleo Ellis. Beautiful shape and looks gorgeous. And I did have to bend the center wires out a bit. Also the band is the loosest of all my Tutti’s. Because the shipping here to Alaska was so spendy, I’m keeping it. I washed twice before wearing, hoping to improve the comfort, but meh.

      Hi dear! I have noticed the same fit differences with different Tutti bras as well! Though I need to size up in the band with Liliana too, it definitely runs smaller in the bigger sizes. I was 32H with Liliana and Betty when I last tried them 😊 I like the Nichole as the narrow wires and deeper cups suit me very well, also I love stretchy bands for comfort reasons. My Nichole stabbed me in my sternum for quite a while but the wires loosened up after a few wears and washes. My trick was to put a small piece of toilet paper under the core when it was still too stiff 😉
