I thought I was getting a gray bra which I really wanted but it's more slate to cornflower blue in real life. I dislike the embroidery a lot less than I was expecting. I got a great deal so I'm not disappointed. But I might try dyeing it in the end. The embroidery that looks almost white in the pictures is actually a very pale lavender blue ... The embroidery only shows under lighter shirts from the color, not the texture. If that makes any sense. Good lift, low gore, very narrow wires (love them!) 4.5". Nice details on the straps. Cup has a ribbon across the top that could be taken off if it cut in on a person. I don't personally have an issue. Both of the plunges I have tried from this brand remind me of Ewa SM cuts when I see them on me. I haven't more than tried it on so I will edit my review after I've wore it for a few hours. First impression is that it is a good fitting model for me even if it's not my favorite esthetically.
Edited: I wore the bra for a couple hours yesterday. I didn't have any issue with it migrating out of my imf. The wires ends right at my tail of spence which is a strange feeling for me. I keep feeling like I might be failing out of the bra but I wasn't. It looks like the smallest bra I've owned (in the right size) that actually fits. I'm so used to wires being soundly wider than I am and the wires feeling somewhat firm where they end this was such a different feeling that I don't know if I can get used to it lol. Also the cups are shorter than many of my others but I didn't get any quadding, jiggling or falling as I wore it. After shark week I'll have to revisit the wire width... Might be my first time in a bra whose wires are a little too narrow.

ETA: my most comfortable bra in the heat. I've found myself wearing it more and more

  • I love how low the gore is! I need low gores. Now, however, I know not to try Elixir by Lejaby bras. I bet the wires in whatever their equivalent to UK 30F would be too narrow for me.

    learningaboutbras some of the bras I've tried from the brand have wider wires. I checked the measurement 3 times for the width because I've never tried on a bra with such narrow wires before. You might look at the New Look I reviewed a couple weeks ago. It has the same low gore and wider wires than this. Manon was another- both either Lejaby or elixir by Lejaby. I usually wear a 30F (UK) in Cleo unlined bras and most everything else. These bras seem to run bigger than I am used to.

    Also I've been able to find these all new on eBay shipped for less than $35 and sometimes for only $20.

    This looks fantastic on you. I love that you're trying all of these because you're reviewing all the bras I've saved to my watch list on eBay LOL

    This looks better on you than it does me! Mine arrived yesterday, and it's not a bad fit, but the low wings, short wires, and thin band are all conspiring to make my underarm chub look exaggerated. :/ Pity, because I love the color and it's pretty comfortable, otherwise.

  • revisa, you bra enabler! :)

    bechod brings up a good point. I find low wings a problem as well. I find the bra measurements don't always capture just how low some bands feel under the arms. I can't figure out why. In any case, do you have any generalizations about how low the wires are under the arms in Elixir by Lejaby and Lejaby? I have to size up in Cleo bras just to get high enough wings.

    Not that I need any more excuses to buy bras...but you know...I need the information...for science...bra science...

    bechod and learningaboutbras I'm wearing My Melusine today and it comes up higher and wider. It almost pinches but doesn't. But I like the cups out of my armpit. I do like wide bands and higher wings but I don't find them very often in my size. I get less bulge with these bras than the classic Lily bump in 30F. I will have to consider the wings and wires more closely and get back to you. The bras are still new enough to me that I'm still in my mind referring them by their color and not their names. I have two white ones, one pink one, a periwinkle, and a slate blue gray that fit. I have a pink and a gold that don't fit. Wow I really stocked up over the last couple months ....

  • bechod i usually think when I see the same bra on other people it looks better on them too lol. Have you put up a review?

    Not yet, probably tonight once I can upload some pics. I think wing height is just going to be a tough one for me to figure out.

    Say what you may - I love the fit on you! I should put a review together myself. I'm behind with everything atm. : work, birthday parties to be organised, friend moving in with us; waaaaaa - I need my bra time!

    It looks better in the pictures than I thought it looked when I first tried it on. I also like that the bra looks small before i put it on haha
