Sometimes having a fuller figure has more downsides to it than the good parts we should be concentrating on and shouting about. Now don't get me wrong, I've come to love this new figure of mine, it's what comes along with my lifestyle and it's one which I'm not about to give up anytime soon, so I just have to adapt my way of dressing to suit it and not the other way around!
I've found a love of mom jeans which just hug my curves in all the right places and support my figure perfectly. It makes getting dressed easier because half of my outfit is already taken care of so I don't have to make yet another decision in the morning! (Apparently, we make up to 35,000 a day so one less is very welcome!)
With all this being said, there's still one area which I feel isn't very well catered for if you happen to be fuller figured / be blessed with a larger chest. There are plenty of sexy, lacy bralettes available for those with smaller chests, but not so much for those of us on the opposite end of the scale!
And as for the bras available, well, there are some nice ones on the market but they can be pricey and don't really make me feel sexy! Step in Rougette from Tutti Rouge - the company making sexy, affordable, edgy and desirable with no compromise. Designs that inspire you to look sexy when it matters most!
Saskia Floral Crop Top Black
This lace crop top is designed to be worn with the Sophia Bra to create a gorgeous piece of outerwear which can be dressed up or down depending on your desire. I certainly would have to wear this with a bra as you can see it's quite see through! But I would definitely go braless at home, because well, why not?! It's very daring but I reckon it would look great underneath an LBD or a sleeveless dress/top, with the sleeves out.
It would also look good dressed up with a pencil skirt, a cami and a blazer. Of course, if your work allows you to wear something like this! Id' say wear it anyway because damn girl, your body deserves to be clad in something beautiful and sexy instead of being restrained in another uncomfortable bra!
The fit of this crop top is perfect for me, neither too big nor too small. I got a size XL and for once the band underneath doesn't roll up like so many others I've tried in the past! FINALLY there seems to be a crop top which not only looks good on a fuller figure but actually enhances it AND is comfortable to wear so my girls can fly free without being restricted!
I love the floral design on this crop top, it's really pretty and feminine and the fact it's see through really just puts it up another level. If you're looking for something flattering, comfortable and sexy then add this gorgeous crop top to your basket now and enjoy life wire free!
Sarah Bra in Ochre
Of course I had to go for this bra - yellow AND called Sarah?! How could I not?! It's about time I had something colourful in my lingerie drawer, seeing as most of my bras are either nude, black or white! One feature of this bra I love are the heart shaped straps and the gated strapping detail. It's a point of difference between all the other bras I have and helps to spread out the load taken by the underband of this bra.
I paired this with my new sunflower yellow blazer from Primark, I've been told so many times that yellow is my colour so I'm embracing it and wearing yellow as often as possible now! When I'm having a bad day I find that wearing happy, bright colours always makes me smile and it doesn't matter that nobody else can see your underwear, so long as you know what's going on underneath, there's always a reason for a secret smile! The fit of this bra is very comfortable to wear and looks good underneath t-shirts and shirts. When the weather *finally* gets better, I'm hoping to wear it underneath all of my dresses as well, of course the yellow colour brings Spring\Summer to my wardrobe all year round anyway! It's good to have some gorgeous bras in my collection now, all too often bras for bigger boobed ladies aren't always so and look more like some sort of construction equipment than something meant to luxuriously hold your delightfully fuller cups!
GiGi Bralette Scarlett
This gorgeous red bralette is something a little different for your lingerie drawer, the mesh Bandeau ensures a comfy/sexy looks whilst the double fastener back adds a little extra sexiness. It's very comfortable to wear, although I have to mention here that my particular one is slightly too large so gapes at the sides and the second little fastener isn't as tight as it could probably be if the overall size was smaller.
With all that being said though, it is still gorgeous to wear and because there aren't any wires, your girls are softly encased in lace allowing freedom from pain. The wide band underneath sits neatly and doesn't ride up, unlike most other bralettes where the band just disappears under my boobs never to be seen again! I love having something like this in my underwear drawer now, for too long I've been feeling trapped by society, wearing bras to flatten my boobs which hurt me, left red marks on my skin, had painful wires digging in and was basically left more and more unhappy. Now I'm getting *cough* older *cough* I care less and less about how I SHOULD dress and more about how I WANT to dress and this includes my underwear! I want to be comfortable, not confined, to encased in lace, to feel excited when I open my underwear drawer and this gorgeous bralette ticks all those boxes.
This Sophia bra features the signature Tutti Rouge lace and under lace detailing and is a little something for your lingerie wardrobe. It can be worn underneath the Saskia Floral Crop Top or alone as an everyday bra. The lace cups delicately encase my breasts and fit perfectly, when a bra is this pretty it demands to be seen.
There are times when a 'proper' bra is called for and nowadays I much prefer it to be as beautiful as possible so I can smile knowing I'm wearing something pretty underneath my clothes! Again this bra, like all the other from Tutti Rouge, have heart shaped back straps on the back. Adding yet another feminine touch to this beautiful bra.
I had myself a Grease Lightning moment with my new boiler suit from New Look! I found the bra looks really good here and could be dressed up more for a night out. I have a lace bodysuit which would work very well with this bra and boiler suit combination for a sexier evening look. I do think that a sexy black bra is an essential in every girl's wardrobe as it just goes with so many outfits and can be worn in so many different ways! Yes, a black t-shirt bra is more of an everyday bra, but one like this will help to dress up any outfit you have in your wardrobe.
What I like most about this bra is the half lace cups, I think it's such a feminine touch and makes it just that little bit sexier. It also doesn't show off too much skin which is good if you're not wanting to have a lot of boob on show! I think this bra is very elegant and is definitely one I'm pleased to have in my collection now.
My Final Thoughts on Tutti Rouge Lingerie
The best thing about Tutti Rouge and Rougette lingerie is that they cater for ladies with bigger boobs as there aren't that many companies out there who do pretty lingerie for those of us who are blessed with a bigger chest. To be able to browse through a gorgeous selection of bras, bodies and crop tops really makes me happy because sometimes I want a sexy bra and other times a lovely crop top with no wires!
It's good to be able to have a selection available for every different occasion and desire. There's a wide range of sizes available, styles, colours so there's definitely something to suit you and I am thinking of more underwear I can order from them as everything I own is such good quality!
I really urge you to check them out if you're bigger boobed as they're a fantastic company with something for everyone and the prices are reasonable too which is a really good thing because most of the time, bras under a DD+ are a more reasonable price than those above a DD+! I don't quite understand why there needs to be such a price hike but thankfully Tutti Rouge don't do this so you can shop to your heart's content!
Tutti Rouge also do matching knickers for their bras and I have black and yellow to go with the Sophie Bra and the Ochre Sarah set. Obviously I didn't photograph them but they're very comfortable and I love having matching sets!
