Who's looking at you..... Curvy Kate

Now onto a brand who I once thought I would never be able to wear, I'd always admired the pieces but always found they would never fit me right but praise the lingerie gods for around the past 3-4 years nearly every style I have tried from Curvy Kate has been pretty much a perfect fit! And I wear my Daily Dream every day in my day job (which is in a restaurant) the fit and the functionality of the bra for under a white shirt is amazing.
But enough of that and onto the new, I always look forward to seeing Curvy Kate because the staff are always lovely and the models are always so pretty!!! 

The lovely Sally from Curvy Kate showed us through both the main collection and the Scantily line which I will do a completely separate post on (I do own a lot of scantily because it is pretty awesome!) 

I'm going to start with a style which will be coming to Large Cup Lingerie in June, a new staple which looks like it will do very very well for the brand is Victory, coming in black (and Latte but the latter not at LCL just yet!) The 4 part construction is something they haven't tried before and pre sales show that it could be something they do on future styles as it is flying out the door! 

Next the Luxe, now having owned this since it came out I can say it has amazing support, I honestly haven't had enough use out of mine to give it a better review but hopefully I will be able to get my hands on the new Ivory colour way in a size that will fit me, I will be putting a video of the lovely Laura Butler who demonstrated the amazing support and hold of this bra by doing cartwheels across the floor here at Moda on my Twitter soon which is @RuthsRoom for anyone interested in following me on there (I do post a lot of boob related stuff as well as some rubbish!) 

Another style I cannot wait to try is the Smoothie Soul a plunge seamless mounded bra which I'm hoping fits me as well as it fits Laura!

The inside of the nude is a lovely shade of pink and some of the details on the outside are also pink, I am unsure if this is the same for the black though.
This also comes in a fashion print which is very geometric.

I spoke about the daily dream being my go to bra earlier and the fashion colour way for AW17 is a beautiful indigo blue which looks very denim like and has a contrasting purple trim which again I look forward to owning!

Now I have the mention and show the tease which is a style that has been around for a long long one time! Cha remembers owning the Lemon and Black which was one of the first colours it came out in. Sally mentioned they tried to leave it out for a season or two but there was a bit of uproar so they gave it a few tweaks and brought it back again (rather like one of the desserts at where I work, if that went from the menu I think people would stop coming to us it's that good!)

Now a style being replaced this is Ritzy, the new style taking over is the Trixie quite a simple style with lovely little lace details, plus the line also includes a longline baby doll.

Let me know what you your looking forward too, and if you own the Luxe what are your thoughts!

Meet the new Tutti in town

Well well well, it's been a while since I've been able to post on here, unfortunately life has gotten in the way so many times but from now on, I WILL make time to try and get at least one post every two weeks!!

Now onto the blog post!

Myself and Cha from Large Cup Lingerie are back at Moda and looking a the different collections coming this Autumn Winter season, and I am starting my Moda posting off with the Tutti Rouge styles s well as their new range "Rougette"

Now Tutti Rouge are the brand I first review we'd on my blog, the Lilliana has come out in so many colours since that very first pink colour. My very first blog post! Looking back at this at point would have upset me because I was a little slimmer back then but having gained weight I have gained some confidence which is mainly due to the fact that there are so many people promoting body positivity (still some nasty people out there) but the vast majority are.

Now onto the new pieces from Tutti, now my favourite is the Talia, the abstract floral print stands out so well against the black background of the bra, and the plunge style looks like it will be a good style that will work for people of different shapes and sizes.

The Minx is my second favourite, due to the fact it comes with a pair of high waisted bottoms and I do love a good pair of high waisted pants! 

Lastly I have a thing for bralettes at the minute, although in most if I want to to wear them out the house they do need a bra underneath as they don't tend to offer a lot of support, the Elvie is an all over lace padded bralette which is so soft to the touch and looks amazing on all the promo pictures I would be amiss not to like this one.

Now onto the new line, the only style from the main Tutti line to go up past a 38 band has been the Lilliana, Jessica the Founder of the brand has listened to the feedback from customers and has expanded back sizes by creating the new range "Rougette" which launches July 2017.

One colour way/print which we have a seen a lot today is leopard and the Erica is one of my favourite pieces seen today, the shape is slightly vintage and the finishing details are something that Tutti always manage to get right, plus the briefs are again high waisted which scores big ticks across the board for me!!

Lastly the piece in which Cha liked is the Ashley, which is a stunning shade of blue (cannot say exact shade but the blue was was nice and bold!) Another bralette, which will have an extra lining from the sample we saw today.

Now I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the Sukki in the Ivory which will be out around April time, (no photo of this one though) The caging is detachable and will work well under my everyday workwear white shirts!
I do hope I will be able to get my hands on some of the styles mentioned in this post, if there any tutti pieces you'd like to try please let me know and I will try to get my hands on them and puts something up.
