Very short, projected, slightly narrow, close set, center full, even breasts....
This is Bardot....improved. The band!! Ellace has a firm piece of peach elastic to which the cups and lace are sewn. This elastic dramatically improves the weight distribution of my breasts. In Bardot, the wire "dug in" under my most projected breast. Ellace's elastic prevents that pain. Wow.
Although I don't yet have a reliable method to measure this, Ellace feels more immediately projected than Bardot. However, this feeling may be more closely related to the weight distributing effect of the firm, peach elastic. Whatever it is, Ellace feels more supportive than Bardot.
Ellace's fabrics are softer and smoother. Mesh ... is not my favorite, but Ellace's mesh is soft! Not quite as soft as the mesh Lejaby Mellisia band, but considerably softer than Bardot. I would not recommend Bardot to those with fabric sensitivities, but Ellace may be acceptable.
The stretch lace across the top of the cup may be a problem for soft breast tissue. My shorties present in-cup quadding at the seam. However, this may be caused by my prominent nipple sitting above the apex. I would prefer a stretch lace with elasticity more closely resembling the mesh lower cup. That may come in Ellace 2.0 This is one detraction, but it won't prevent me from wearing this very comfortable, supportive bra.
Ellace can accommodate taller roots than Bardot because the cup is .5" taller and the top of the cup is stretch lace rather than mesh. However, Ellace remains a wonderful option for short-rooted, projected breasts.
The 2nd 30G Bardot I ordered will be returned and replaced with another 30G Ellace.
