|The Tutti Rouge Sophia in Mint|
The Sophia ended up being my favorite of the two which surprised me because I was expecting to prefer the Frankie. But the Sophia is a dreamy combination of textures and finishes; the satin base and straps are wonderfully complimented by the matte mesh of the top cup and the accent white lace breaks up the tone on tone design. The mesh behaves in the same way that stretch lace would, containing without restricting and it better conforms to individual shapes. For example, my breasts are slightly different sizes and the mesh evened the appearance out.
The Sophia offers more coverage than the other Tutti Rouge styles I've tried, but as you can see from the pictures, I still get a wonderful lift and gentle cleavage. I'd wear this under a v-neck t-shirt on an "everyday" basic because it's a nicely casual décolletage. I would say that the Sophia's fit runs differently from any of the other Tutti Rouge bras; it was quite full at the top so I needed to size down in the cups to a 28FF and while the band was firm, it wasn't tight like the others have been.

I'm still a big believer in Tutti Rouge and I'm crazy excited about their Spring/Summer 2014 collection which I previewed back in August. The company's creative director, Jessica Prebble, has such a unique vision and contagious excitement for the dramatically frillier bits of lingerie. She's also entirely open to feedback and I've seen her respond personally to every Tutti Rouge review that's been published. Although my boobs didn't gel with the Liliana, Frankie, and Birds of a Feather, I'm confident that this brand has a lot of exciting things to show us in the future.
