another day, another review! everyone, meet jessica. this gorgeous little set was gifted to me by the babes that are tutti rouge.
as this bra is actually available in 28 bands i did request a 28G, however at the time this was not in stock and i received a 30G (pictured) which i took on holiday with me in september, and received a 30F (no 30FF was available) to try out once i got back from holiday too. the brazilian brief is size small.
so first of all, lets cover the sizing of this set. the bra offers quite a flexible fit in my opinion – the 30G was almost perfect, it wasn’t too gappy and the band fit just like a 30 would usually fit me. the only thing i did notice was that the wires were quite wide due to it being a cup size too big. however they weren’t uncomfortable, and i’d happily wear the 30G especially when i’m on my period and need a bit of extra room! the cups are made of a really soft mesh that has a bit of stretch to it and have a nice plunging shape to them. the 30F fit equally as well with little overspill on the top edge, although the wires did dig into my breast tissue a smidge at the sides, so based on this i would say it’s definitely true to size – if a 28G or 30FF were available at the time it was sent to me, i have no doubt it would’ve been a PERFECT fit! the brief in small fits my 8-10 perfectly and is really comfortable and flattering. it’s a classic brazilian brief shape at the back which is my favourite style these days.
i’ve previously tried tutti rouge’s liliana bra a couple of years ago when i was a 28FF, which sadly didn’t work very well with my shape. the cups were too shallow and wide for me, and i ended up with a bit of a splayed shape but jessica fits me a LOT better. there’s more immediate projection in the cups and it gives a really nice forward shape.
the bra comes with extra padding that can be taken out or worn in various ways to give 4 different levels of cleavage, which is pretty amazing! there’s basically a little ‘pocket’ that’s padded, with a smaller padded insert inside that. so you can wear none at all for a natural shape, just the small insert for a little extra boost, just the ‘pocket’ for added cleavage, or pop the insert inside the pocket for extreme cleavage! personally i preferred the gentle shaping the bra gave on its own without the padding, or just using the smaller insert. i felt like it gave me a bit of a blocky shape when i wore the full padding but i have a suspicion that may just be down to the cup being one size larger than i’d usually wear.
the styling of this set is so classy and romantic, in semi-sheer black polka dot mesh and lace over a nude base. adorned with pretty ribbon-slot detail that’s glamorous and cute, with petite satin roses details too. the bra straps are fully adjustable and feature tutti’s signature heart sliders (i just LOVE them, they’re so cute and the heart shape seems to help them stop slipping). overall it is really comfortable and easy to wear, and will definitely be slipping its way into my day to day rotation.
you can buy the jessica set direct from tutti rouge here, with the choice of a thong or brazilian brief and with a matching suspender too. the bra is available from a 28 through 38 bands, and D to HH cups with the matching items in XS to XXL.
