review: eva bralette – rougette by tutti rouge

the eva ochre set was purchased with my own money from asos 

i’ve already reviewed rougette’s eva body, now its time for the bralette set! the eva bralette was a total life saver during the ridiculously high temperatures we had in the uk last summer, when underwired bras were pretty much unbearable in the heat.

the look

the rougette eva bralette set boasts the brand’s signature polka dot mesh and floral lace, following the same shape and look as the eva body. it has a low plunging neckline and a cute longline lace band, with cross-back straps and classic heart shaped gold sliders. the coordinating brief is a higher rise cut in the same mesh and lace, with a super-flattering brazilian shaped back.

the sunshine yellow hue injects so much happiness into my lingerie drawer, and i now have decided that i need more yellow sets in my collection! the cups are opaque enough to wear this bralette as a crop top thanks to the double layer of mesh ad lace, which i did multiple times during the summer (and you can always pop on a pair of nipple covers if you fancy). overall, eva is a youthful and fun yet elegant looking set that’s bang on-trend with tons of style-ability.

the fit

previous rougette lingerie styles that i’ve tried have started from a 32 band, but eva yellow is one of the first styles i saw available in 30 bands – so i couldn’t wait to try it out and i’m glad they’re expanding their size range! while i don’t really wear the rougette bralettes for their support and uplift, it is always nice to have a snugger fit for comfort and a nicer shape. so, i went with the 30FF/G for the eva bralette and a small for the brief. the bralette is a great fit – the band sits nicely throughout the day with minimal movement, and the cups have a good volume to them. i do find the neckline digs in ever so slightly but my breast tissue is pretty firm and full, so this wouldn’t be too much of an issue on those with less full/firm busts. it gives a natural shape with not a lot of lift, but feels secure and comfortable and is a great option for those who just want something easy and lightweight to wear that isn’t designed for heavy-duty support. with the bralette my only issue is the straps – i don’t think i have particularly short shoulders but i find the straps are just a little too long and i can’t quite tighten them enough.

the brief is unfortunately a little disappointing despite being so beautiful. the gusset is extremely short and too far back, to the point where the gusset itself is visible at the back, leaving the lace front panel and seams to sit in all the wrong places. i am keeping my eye out for a cheap yellow brief on the high street that i can cut the gusset out of to stitch into it just so i can wear it, because despite this issue with the gusset it does sit nicely everywhere else and has a really lovely shape and cut to it.

the verdict

rougette by tutti rouge offers affordable and stylish designs for D-G cups, all the way up to 48 band sizes which is incredible for such a low price point. they’re one of my favourite brands for this reason, and i’m thoroughly enjoying seeing them flourish and expand with such gorgeous new designs so often. their price point does reflect the quality – not quite the same as your technically designed underwired fuller bust styles, but better than your high street and supermarket products. they’re a great mid-range brand and the eva bralette set is proof of their ability to keep up with trends and fill a bit of a gap in the full bust market. i’ve already gotten my money’s worth out of the eva bralette with the amount i wore it last summer, and it still has a lot of life left in it!

eva is available in black, ochre and emerald across sizes 30-48 DD-G cups, and XS-6XL (roughly size 8-26) for the briefs.

if you’ve tried rougette lingerie already, what’s your favourite style?
