I’ve been a fan of the Tutti Rouge Betty design for the past few seasons, but had yet to try it. No particular reason why, I was just waiting to see what other colorways would be released in the design. Low and behold, Tutti Rouge comes out with a gorgeous pastel blue Betty for SS14 and I knew I had to have it! Blue is one of my favorite colors, and I’m always quick to love lingerie in different shades of blue. This blue version of Betty really reminded me of a Marie Antoinette type of style, and I was instantly smitten. Now I finally have the Betty, and I’m such a huge fan of this style! From the colorway to the ruffles to the fit, this set is sugary sweet as can be, and definitely my favorite Betty colorway thus far. The padded bra and the matching short makes the cutest set for Spring/Summer, and I love Tutti Rouge because they come out with designs a full bust gal can really get excited about. Growing up, I most had black or white or beige bras, because many of the cute designs didn’t cater to fuller busts. Thats why I’m so excited about Tutti Rouge and other brands that cater to a full bust but also make a point to create no only large cup sizes, but fashionable and fun designs formerly only enjoyed by small busted gals. Tutti Rouge sizing is available in band sizes 28-28 and cup sizes D-HH, and panty sizes XS-XXL.
How cute is this set? I love it! This balconette style bra is lightly padded, and has seamed cups to create a lifted silhouette. The material feels satiny smooth with a pastel flowered print over the light blue background, and the adjustable straps feature the same flowered print, and the signature heart shaped metal adjusters. There is blue lace lining the bottom of the cups and along the bottom of the bra band, and another panel of the lace lining the tops of each cup. There is a slightly oversized pink ribbon bow at the center gore. The bra is comfortable and fits true to size, with a bit of a stretchy band. I find that Tutti Rouge’s bands run a bit stretchier than other brands, so if you’re between sizes or want a very firm band, size down in the band. I find that the cups run true to size. The matching panties come in a really cute retro short style, which is one of my favorite Tutti Rouge bottom styles. The retro short has the matching print, with princess type panels along the front giving it almost a skirted look. Lace edging lines the legs, panels in the front, and the waistband. There is also a bubblegum pink bow at the center waistband. the back of the panty is so cute!
there is sheer blue mesh along the back of the panty, with a slight ruched design in the center, another tiny pink bow at the back waistband, and just below the bow is a tiny little lace lined keyhole opening. Cute! Tutti comes up with the cutest matching panties, seriously. There panties are always so fun and far from boring. The panties run true to size, if not a bit generous. I got a Small, which I usually do, but definitely could have fit into a XS. The panty has a nice amount of stretch, feels smooth and soft, and is really comfortable. It really adds a special something to the bra to make this a lovely set! You can find the Tutti Rouge Betty Balconette Bra and the matching Retro Knicker at Tutti Rouge’s online shop.
