I know that there are tons of TR Liliana reviews out in the blog world right now, but none in my size range. And, I’ve seen the comments made that the bands are snug and the cups are small. So here I am to weigh in.
I ordered the Liliana from Bravissimo in a size 38J. As you’ll see in photos, the cups are definitely too small. But the bra is just so damn cute!
Features: Three part cup construction, lower half light padding, fully adjustable straps, lower center gore, gorgeous detailing
Fit: Obviously, the 38J is about 2-3 cup sizes too small for me, sizing me out of the range completely. I figured it would be a crap shoot for sizing, but I wanted to try it anyways. The straps were a good width for me, and contrary to what others have said, I feel like the 38 was spot on; not as tight as Panache bands and not as loose as Elomi or Freya, but just right (very Goldilocks and the three bears comfy). I am not filling out the bottom of the cups, meaning that they are quite shallow. This isn’t really a problem that I am used to having.
Support and Shape: From the front, this bra looks so nice…..and you can kind of see how it would give a really nice rounded shape from the side. The support is really, really great. The padding on the lower half provides a nice, comfortable level of support.
Wire Width and Height: Just spot on 🙂
Look and Feel: I mean….c’mon. How cute is this bra? And the materials are really, really nice.
Pros: Lower center gore, charming design, comfortable straps, wires, and cups….and literally the most comfortable bra I have *EVER* had on my body
Cons: Cups are shallow; I would suggest going for your CK or Bravissimo size if you want to try this (versus say a Panache, Freya or Elomi size).
Other thoughts: I think that, if Tutti Rouge were to expand their size range, they would have a HUGE customer base because all of their styles are super cute and flirty/fun. The size range for the Liliana is DD-J, but I would say that a realistic representation of the size range of this bra is more like C-GG/H most likely. I have yet to see this fit anyone over an FF, and so I feel confident saying that this is not a viable option for ladies that are H+ in the cup range. Which is a shame because this bra is fabulous. It’s possible that others are finding the band to come up snug because they cannot swoop and scoop all of their tissue into the cups, but this is just speculation.
Overall Grade: B+ (A+ for style!)
***Also, I have this bra, still with tags, and would like to sell it. So anyone in the 38GG/H/HH range that might be interested in it, please contact me using the form below 🙂 ***
