Didn't fit

I had high expectations for this bra. Similarly constructed bras Panache Jasmine and Envy did not work for me.

So to start on a positive note:
The bra looks really pretty and well made. The fabric with overlaying lace is soft and good quality. The lace upper cup is very stretchy. Also there is no elastic ribbon at the cup edge, so no cutting in. I also really liked the round shape I got in this bra.

The bad:
The bra just felt very unsupportive! It only features a 2 hook closure in this size. The band feels thin and flimsy and not supportive enough for a heavy bust. (32HH is still a large size!) I found that a lot of weight was on the straps. Also they are very narrow would cut in easily. The wire width was okay but I found the wings to be too low. It's not that breast tissue would escpae (as the option I had to choose here said) but I think a taller wing would give more support. There was also quite a bit of jiggling when I moved (as expected with a soft stretchy lace) but I found it was too much. Weirdly I even had some slight gaping going on where the strap meet the cups... I really don't understand. I usually wear even a 32J in Bravissimo Alana so this bra here is NOT too big.
Anyway overall it just felt too weak and I wouldn't not recommend it, if you looking for supportive everyday bra in that size range.

I'd love to try 30J or 30JJ and see if they fit me better since those sizes have 3x3 closure and extra lining for support.

This bra is not owned any more

    This whole move to 2 hooks sucks. Have you tried Elomi in 32H or HH? They have three hooks.

    Also it looks like the wires are a similar width to these bravissimos.

  • cupandahalf I tried a few Elomi bras in 32J. Most wires were too wide, cups a bit too tall but not roomy enough at the centre. I liked the plunge Matilda or Charley but I cannot stand the low gores, they hurt me and I need the support of the taller gore at the wire. I don't know which style I should try.

  • I really liked Morgan/Meredith. In my size the wires are really narrow. They are also taller than the plunges so maybe no stabby stabby?

  • cupandahalf I tried both of them in 32J. I found the wires very flexible on me, support was not the best. Maybe I should try them again in 32HH.

    Well if you already tried them it’s probably not worth it. Panache bras also have three hooks in these sizes and have similar wire widths so that’s another avenue to try.

  • cupandahalf do you remember the Tatiana bra from a few years back? it was a balconette / full cup but no stretchy lace. All over that satin-y like fabric? Is there a model on current Elomi collections that is similar? I think they all are either plunges or have stretch lace tops.

  • Supposedly that’s the same cut as Elomi Cate. I never tried Tatiana so I can’t be sure but what you describe sounds very similar to Cate.

  • cupandahalf Thanks. Cate is similar to former Caitlyn. It was decent in large sizes like Tatiana but very wide wires. They start at 34 band so maybe they are not so good in my current size range.

    That’s too bad. The smaller band equivalent is Fantasie full cups which you’ve tried I think.

  • I gave up on Elomi for now. There are many Bravissimo styles left that I can try. Many of them still have 3 hooks in larger sizes.
