Lingerie | Tutti Rouge Tallulah Sunshine in 28FF + brazilian brief in size S review


Tutti Rouge is a flirty and girly brand I've already had the luck to review:
Liliana was a miss for me, shape wise, but Nichole remains one of my most projected bras!

This time, to celebrate the beginning of Spring, I bring you an oldie but goldie:
the Tallulah Sunshine set, which I've fallen for ever since I saw it at Science & Silicone!

This set, which is part of TR 2015 S/S collection, is very romantic and quite unique,
so, when I saw it at a nice price at The Bra Closet online store,
I couldn't help myself to order a 28FF bra and the matching size S brazilian brief!

Tallulah also exists in a Tattoo version, which features a nice floral print!

Let's see how well the set fared right after the jump, okay?




A Tutti Rouge é uma divertidíssima e romântica marca de lingerie,
que eu já tinha tido oportunidade de experimentar nesta altura!

Este conjunto que apregoa Primavera, doçuras e dias de sol,

já estava na minha mira deste que o tinha visto na Florence do Science & Silicone...
Desta forma, quando o descobri em promoção na loja The Bra Closet, não consegui resistir:
o soutien no tamanho 28FF e a cueca asa delta no tamanho S vieram morar cá a casa!

Inicialmente, no entanto, ponderei devolver/vender este fantástico conjunto!
Porquê?
Porque o soutien deveria ser um 28G para melhor me assentar,
porque o formato das copas (como é de esperar na marca Tutti Rouge, de resto) 
era pouco profundo e demasiado largo para o meu peito,
e, finalmente, porque as alças estavam colocadas de forma demasiado lateral na copa,
roçando-me as axilas.

Ora, o 28G já não existia no site, e, quanto mais experimentava este conjunto
(como se as copas fossem magicamente aumentar...),
mais vontade me dava de ficar com ele e usá-lo tooooda a Primavera!
Vai daí, dei por mim a pesquisar formas de o tornar mais profundo e menos largo...
e descobri esta publicação do blog All is Fair in Love and Lingerie,
com a ajuda da qual, através do acto de moldar o aro, 
consegui tornar a copa do soutien mais estreita e mais profunda...
Isso alterou o "fitting" do mesmo o suficiente para se tornar usável!

O problema com as alças, minorei-o com outro truque bastante simples:
usar o soutien em modo "racerback"!
Para já, como não tinha o meu kit de acessórios comigo, tive de improvisar com um alfinete de ama...
mas a diferença na maneira de assentar deixou-me suficientemente satisfeita para, em 10 minutos,
ter passado da decisão de vender esta beleza, para ficar com ela para todo o seeeempre (ou quase hehehe)!

No resto da publicação podem ver todas as fotos 
que me deixaram ainda mais babada por este conjunto de lingerie!
Cuidado...pode ser que se apaixonem também!

Beijinhos e uma excelente Páscoa!
(Já agora, digam lá se estas cores não lembram as amêndoas, hein?)



CONSTRUCTION

Tallulah is a semi-padded balconette bra, with a 3 part construction.


The top part of the cups is made of lace than ends with a silicone strip to keep everything in place,
while the rest of the cup is made of a relatively thick material, with no padding, however!


 It's not my case, because I don't have sensitive skin, but some might find the lace a little bit scratchy!


The straps are semi-adjustable, with a minimum length of 27 cm (10,6 inches).
The band fastens with 2 rows of 3 columns of hooks-and-eyes, in an U-shaped back.


APPEARANCE

Do I have to explain just how girly pretty Tallulah Sunshine is?!
The delicacy of the yellow satin fabric, matched with the light pink, 
is the perfect combination to welcome Spring!


The flower lace is very romantic, and applied gorgeously along both pieces!


Tallulah Sunshine, also features cute white and yellow striped bows,
the bigger ones, featuring a sparkling heart droplet, at the center gore and front of the panties,
and tiny versions at the middle of each strap and at the back of the panties.


The adjusters feature the usual - super cute! - TR heart shaped hardware!


FIT

Tutti Rouge is know for it's wide and shallow shape and wide placed straps,
so it was no surprise to me to me that Tallulah Sunshine kept that promise!
However, the shape incompatibility,
along with the fact that I could actually use a 28G instead of the 28FF I ordered,
initially made me decide to SELL this precious baby set...

HOWEVER...
the more I tried on the set to see if it magically looked better than before,
the more I fell for this beauty...
That being said, I decided to search ways to make the cups more suitable for my shape
and, luckily for me, I followed All it´s Fair in Love and Lingerie tips,
and, bending over the wires of Tallulah Sunshine,
I was able to get deeper and narrower cups, which made the bra fit waaaay better!


As for the straps, the solution I came up with (having close to ZERO stitching skills)
was to wear the bra as a racerback!



Sure, it's NOT PERFECT and not exactly a technical fit,
but the set is so BEAUTIFUL that I've already wore it and felt like I was wearing Spring itself!

Now, onto the measuring:

the band is 57,8 cm (22,8 inches) and expands to 71 cm (28 inches) when stretched.
AFTER the bending, the cups of the Tallulah Sunshine provide a depth of 23 cm (9.1 inches) 
and a width of 13,5 cm (5,3 inches),
much better than the initial width of 15,2 cm (6 inches)!



I know, I know, I still get some quadding going on, but, believe me, 
it was way worse before my little superhuman wire bending action! (ha!)

I'm FoB with medium to tall roots and I believe this bra is more suitable for FoB with short roots!
I'd say most people will have to size up in this beauty, specially the FoT and tall rooted girls!


The placement of the straps, like I said, is very wide and that,
paired with the fact they're not full adjustable,
made them a bit too loose and way too clingy of my armpits for my taste

BEFORE I put them in a more rightful place with a little racerback trick!



Because of the wide placement of the straps (even with my trick!)
and the configuration of the the cups, I get a slightly "east-west" look...
nevertheless, from the profile, 
you can see the naturally round, slightly minimizing appearance Tallulah provided!


The brazilian brief wasn't available at XS anymore, but the S fits good enough!
(A little bit roomier than I would like, but not at the point of falling out!)
My hip measures 91 cm, for reference!


They're very low rise, which is always a nice bonus point in my book,
but might not be everyone's cup of tea!

CONCLUSIONS


Even though it's not the most perfect shape for me,

this set sings to that fairy I have resting inside me, longing for pretty and girly stuff!

Tallulah is best suited for FoB with medium to wide roots and shallower shapes!


The bra is available in sizes 28-38 from D-HH cups and the briefs from sizes XS-XXL!

Did this beauty tempt you?

Have you tried any TUTTI ROUGE bras yet? Do you swear by any?

  1. Oh mylanta, I love this set so much and have ever since Science and Silicone reviewed it. I wish it was more immediately projected. I'd be happy to bend wires till the cows come home if I thought it wouldn't be too shallow. I've always had a love affair for Tallulah, both Sunshine and Tattoo.

  2. DAAAAAMN! Your body is amazing! And this set looks terribly gorgeous on you! I wanted to try it but I am really unsure of the fit on my 30GG breasts... :'( so sad that it doesn't fit properly... I adore the details of this one! The bow on the panty is so cute!
