Introducing our BRAND NEW blog content…10 questions we ask everyone!
- You have a table booked at London’s most glamourous restaurant and you can invite any two guests – who would they be and why?
Alive or Dead?If alive then Michelle Obama and Ellen Degeneres, because I’d want to bathe in the aura of the two most powerful women in the world in the hopes I might absorb even a little bit of that power, plus they are friends so the conversation would be good. I’d also like to see what they joke about. I think I could make Michelle laugh.If dead then Blondie and Freddie Mercury.The two most influential fashion icons of the last century. If you had asked me last year I would maybe have said Audrey Hepburn and Blondie, but I saw Bohemian Rhapsody last night and now I’m in a potent Queen haze. Fat-bottomed girls is my jam.
- Your wardrobe is on fire and you can only save one outfit – describe it to us…
Seeing as it looks like I’ll be out of clothes for the next few days I’d save my painter’s playsuit. It’s a denim all in one with big bright red and cream panels on the legs and chest, and a long zip down the front. It’s also got a tie around the middle. I feel like a giant child in it, it inspires me to want to paint and get creative. Also it’s easy to put on; simply get in and go out. Also my Donald Duck Leather Jacket. I found it in a charity shop for fifteen pounds, I’ve worn it once because the arms are too small but I love it anyway.
- What is the one song that just makes you feel amazing?
Can I be boring and say there are LOADS? No? Ok then I’ll go with my feel good ear worm for today, which is Goodnight Gotham by Rihanna.
- What film character best describes you?
I asked my boyfriend and he said “oh, Rapunzel from Tangled because she’s always singing about doing thousands of things all the time and wanting to see magical sights.”I would have gone with Leslie Knope.
- If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Aquatic respiration (underwater breathing). 95% of our oceans are unexplored and I want to see what’s down there. So I guess if I’m going in deep, I’ll need the ability to survive the pressure. Maybe superhuman intelligence or time travel so I can build a submarine that explores every part of the ocean.
- Who is your celebrity crush?
David Tennant. I fell madly in love when I saw him as Casanova when I was thirteen. He is beautiful.
- Bra, Bralette or Body – which is your fave?
- It’s London Fashion Week, you are on the front row! Who is either side of you and which brand is on the catwalk?
Florence Welch (She is the master of the prairie dress, I can have her write me a list about where she gets all her dresses) and Lily Allen (I just read her book “My thoughts exactly” and she came across as open, chaotic and experienced. She’s also gone through a spectrum of great fashion. I’d like to sit with her.) Lady Gaga too. I’d have her sit on my lap so I could cuddle her.The brand is Gucci.
- What’s been your best age so far and why?Today, this second, and the next and the next. I am like a fine wine or a good cheese. As I sit and write these answers I am in a robe with my feet up on the dog (he doesn’t mind) and the sun is shining. I don’t think age scares me, it’s becoming irrelevant. Society values youth over maturity and experience, which is mad. At seventeen I was crying over a boy who dumped me and spending all my money from my corner shop job on cheap spirits. And yet everyone seems to gravitate towards the romanticism of youth, when actually it’s a lot of chaos and hormones. Life fluctuates and success is not linear, but I’m more grown than I was then.
Short answer: Every age has been valuable and important, each one is a building block, but I think where I am right now is the best one, followed by each forthcoming year.
- What is your secret talent that no everyone would know?
I write good.
New Year’s resolutions are something that divides everybody. For some, the promise of a fresh new year full of change soon fades by January 3rd when they realise that everything is still the same. However, for many, it’s the perfect time to set some goals and visualise where they’d like to be by the end of the year.
We love starting the New Year on a positive note and 2019 will be no different! If you’re struggling with your resolutions this year, here’s a few bra related changes to make – and stick to – in 2019…

Bralettes and a fuller bust – an unlikely pairing you may be thinking. In many cases, yes – those tiny, triangle pieces of fabric with thin straps and no structure aren’t going to give us fuller bust ladies what we need when it comes to support and lift… But with the ever-growing industry and passionate community of fuller bust lingerie lovers, there’s plenty of bralettes now on the market that offer us the best of both worlds.
Bralettes have rocketed into fashion lately, taking over sales of the push-up bra for many retailers as we turn to festival inspired fashion and super casual vibes for our wardrobes. Calvin Klein and their signature bralettes have triggered an obsession within us for comfortable and fashion forward lingerie that we can wear as an extension of our outfits.
Why do we love bralettes?
Well, what’s not to love? We have to admit, they are probably the most comfortable lingerie option out there – particularly perfect for holidays and the summer weather. They’re lightweight, easy and soft and almost the younger sister version of a ‘real’ bra. They’re traditionally mainly wire-free and rather than being all about supporting, lifting and shaping, bralettes focus more on ticking that comfort box and lending to that loungewear feel that is definitely not exclusively for lazy sundays.
In fact, bralettes have become as much as a fashion accessory as they have a lingerie garment. Showing our push-up or t-shirt bras underneath our clothes can almost feel impolite and unnatural. With a bralette however, many are worn to be layered and seen as a part of your outfit – think pretty, delicate lace peeking out from underneath open knit jumpers, open back tops, sheer blouses and plunging necklines to add that bit of coverage and modesty whilst still keeping it subtly sexy.
Fuller bust bralettes
Fuller busts will not get on with every bralette out there. More coverage is needed – we’re talking thicker straps, more side coverage and just enough support to keep us comfortable. At Tutti Rouge, we work on striking that perfect balance between natural support and ultimate comfort.
Our Frankie bralette is the ideal example. It’s soft mesh and lace material make it super lightweight and comfortable but it’s fashion forward day-to-night style means it’s far from simply lazy-day attire. It features all the support you need whilst embodying comfort with a fierce edge.
For something even more night-out appropriate, try our Taylor Noir bralette for size. It’s an all lace longline bralette which has been designed to make you stand out at party. With padded cups to give you lift and shape, no one needs to know that you’re out in your lingerie! Layer this underneath an open blazer for a super sexy and sophisticated vibe.

For many girls, a high waisted brazilian style pair of knickers ticks many a box on the checklist for the perfect undies – comfortable and secure, yet sexy and feminine. They commandeer the middle ground between a thong and a ‘granny pant’ and provide the best of both worlds.
Body confidence has been one of the biggest topics in fashion discussed within recent years. “She’s too big, too fat, too thin, too small, too tall…” – as females in a social media run world, how are we supposed to know what is right, and what is wrong?
At Tutti Rouge we believe that all women have the right to feel comfortable in their own skin. Catering for the fuller bust female we are here to say that size doesn’t matter, and anyone can and should feel sexy and confident in one of our bras.
Don’t you just hate it when your bra straps just won’t stay up? Girls, we’re sure you’ll agree that this issue is a huge bugbear for women the world over! When you’ve readjusted them for the hundredth time in a day, you know that your bra is probably trying to tell you something… but where are you going wrong exactly?

Let us clear up a little myth – padded and push-up bras are not just for smaller bust women! If you’ve been blessed with a fuller bust, it does not mean that you should shy away from these styles. Own it and enhance it!
So, what is the difference between a padded and a push-up bra? Both are designed to enhance the appearance of our boobs, but they work in two quite different ways.
