Lulu Tout – Fleur Rose
Figleaves regulars may have noticed an interesting new addition to the retailer’s lingerie collection over the last few weeks in the shape of Lulu Tout. While you could be forgiven for thinking this is a new French brand you’ve not heard of before, Lulu Tout has in fact been developed by Figleaves to offer that signature French styling in a broad range size and at affordable prices.
The French are renowned for their romantic and elegant approach to lingerie, using beautiful fabrics and laces, and it is this aesthetic that Figleaves is aiming to emulate with Lulu Tout, albeit with a contemporary edge. Fabrics have been carefully sourced to give that classic French look and each style features delicate embroidery, while modern cuts and details bring the collection right up to date.
Lulu Tout – Coco Lace in emerald
All Lulu Tout bras are available in 30-38 backs up to an H cup and come in two shapes based on the popular Midnight Grace brand. An elegant balcony bra is available in A-D cup sizes, while from DD upwards there’s a high apex plunge shape that provides support and uplift with the ideal amount of coverage for everyday wear. And there are no chunky straps or hook and eye fastenings even in the larger sizes, so the bras maintain their delicate look.
There are three lines in the debut collection for Lulu Tout, each available in two colours. The first is Fleur Rose which is inspired by the growing trend for ‘tattoo effect’ lingerie. The gorgeous nude/black colourway features fine rose embroidery on a barely-there sheer base that perfectly blends classic and modern styling, while contrast colouring on the purple version helps to highlight the pretty embroidery.
Then there’s Coco Lace, a subtle and sophisticated collection that features embroidered pinstripes with a pretty scalloped edge. Choose from muted charcoal or vibrant emerald for a splash of colour.
Lulu Tout – Amelie in electric blue
And last but definitely not least is Amelie. This comes in both black and electric blue and is completely stunning – especially in the blue which has already proved a top seller in the short time it has been on sale. Featuring jewellery inspired ‘bead’ embroidery on a sheer mesh base, Amelie is definitely the sexiest style of the collection. The DD plus bra has a lower centre front than the other lines along with a side sling for extra support and uplift, while the beaded embroidery perfectly encapsulates the cups of the balconette.
Each bra comes with a choice of short or thong which come in sizes 8-18. Both are designed to eliminate the dreaded VPL by using folded edges that sit flat against the skin.
But the best news by far is the price. All bras are just £24, with the matching shorts priced at £16 and the thong at £15. We think that’s a bit of a bargain!
