Since the topic came up on various adventures and bra reviews I thought I make a dedicated post to gather all info in one place.
Elomi bras used to have very wide and flexible wires. I call them pudding wire. Often the wires stretched far beyond my breast tissue and ended up my back. This is an example on how ... it looked: http://bra.pe/IHed/
So while the bras were comfy to wear, the fit wasn't as great and the shape got really wide an east west.
That kept me from getting more into Elomi for years when in 2019 I gave them another chance and discovered that the wires are much better, they are more sturdy and don't stretch out that well. I think they are comparable to other big bust brands like Fantasie, Freya (they also improved their wires check out my other post on them http://bra.pe/AFPS/) and Bravissimo.
So I wanted to start a list on which bra new wires are, so you know what you will get when you buy them online. Not all bras have been updated (and I don't have any info by Elomi when and if they will - I assume there is also customers that liked the old fit so it makes sense they don't change everything. I just wish they be transparent which bras they changed) I only list bras I tried myself. Let me know which ones your tried and how the wires were and I will include the info here.
