I love red so I bought this bra based on how gorgeous the red is. I was pleasantly surprised when I received it and it was a dark wine color! Most photos online are much less saturated in color. The top of the cup on my larger side slightly cuts in but not enough to matter. I like the shape I get in this bra and the gore tacks nicely. Overall pleased and am liking the Elomi brand!
Also tried it with a harness bra from www.harnessheaven.com (for those who like this look) and I could appreciate this under a plunging neckline of a dress!
When I first tried this bra (40H - Elomi » Anushka Plunge Bra (4061)) I complained bitterly about the stiffness and roughness of the fabric and vowed not to buy the bra again. That is until I saw the bra was being released in a beautiful teal color. When I tried a 42HH the fit was much better, probably because I was underestimating my size back in the day and also because I've grown since then. I decided I had to have the new color as it was just gorgeous.
This bra is one band size bigger than I usually wear and two cup ...sizes down because, for some reason, this bra is not made in a 40JJ like other Elomi plunges. Because of that it's a bit small in the cup. I would love to lose a bit of boob weight now the holidays are over but we will see if the bod will cooperate. I wear the bra on the last hooks right out of the gate.
The fabric is still rough on the outside and shows under knits. Really it was not the most practical purchase. But I needed this color on my body and my husband commented on how pretty it was on me too, so maybe it's ok? 😉 Guess I need the thong now too.😄 Read more 124 more words
You can see my review of this bra previously in a smaller size: 40H - Elomi » Anushka Plunge Bra (4061). I have gained about a cup size since then and I think I was also in a cup size too small then, which contributed to the poor fit.
The fit is quite good actually, due to a firm band and a lot of depth with a quite low gore for this size. I had no riding down after about 45 mins of testing wear, though the wires were slightly pokey at the armpit. Less cutting in than other Elomi plunges in sister sizes. ...The fabric is less smelly than my first one too. Still, it's a plastic bra and doesn't feel great to the touch. The inner fabric is soft enough. It seems like the outside would be very durable...perhaps waterproof? However it's about to be released in a gorgeous teal and black combo that I WANT and I wanted to know if I could get close to a size that fits so I can snatch it up right away. I need a teal bra to match basically all my clothing and furniture. I'm obsessed with the color. If I could find it in the old Kingfisher colorway I would likewise snag it. I will haunt eBay for it just like I already do for old Ritas in sizes that might work. Sob. Read more 140 more words
Another AW2015 design bra with terrible fabric. I could barely stand to put it on. When I removed it from the package I got the overwhelming smell of plastic. The bra itself, besides the lace and mesh top, felt terrible, like stiff plastic. It's made of some sort of tough laminate rip stop material. It looks soft and silky but it's nasty. The lace and mesh top is nice though. It's soft.
Anishka is a plunge, a true plunge at this size, with a stretch lace top. The lace had an elastic edge which took away all the good fit ...qualities of the lace for me, but that's because I'm full on top and Elomi is definitely best for even to full on bottom folks. The wings didn't seem too high but the wires were definitely already bending back, like Elomi wires do. The band was nice and firm but stretchy. I think the elastic Elomi uses helps the band feel more stable.
I could have used more projection at the bottom of the cup and there was a lot of wrinkling, which in this thick fabric showed through clothes. The straps were reduced stretch, ribbed to stay up, and fully adjustable. A good bra in a terrible fabric. Read more 115 more words
I burned out on trying to find a bra that I felt like actually fit last year, but I'm kind of direly in need of some that work for me. So on a whim, since I had never tried Elomi before, and I found one for cheap on Amazon, I figured I'd see how it worked out. I heard this brand is mostly better for FoB, which I am not, but I am kind of 'even' so I thought I might try it to see how it did. Unfortunately, since I'm also pretty firm, the elastic band they're using on the top really cuts into ...my breast tissue, so this is definitely not going to work for me.
I did really like the feel of the band (firm for a 36, which is actually ideal for me since I'm sort of borderline 34-36 but find the 34s don't have enough give to be comfortable and the 36s are often too stretchy) and the straps seemed to have good placement. Didn't want to wear it too long since it was going to go back, so I'm not sure how it would do over time.
Comfycurvy on blogspot's review suggests Elomi's half cup can work for FoT shapes, though, and since I did like the strap/band, I'm tempted to try a half cup as well to see how it works for me. Read more 124 more words
Did not fit. It's like the space in the cups is too far to the sides instead of in the middle, so I have excess fabric at the side bottom of the cups and the cups are way too small at the centre. I fit this size in the Bijou bra, so the Anushka must have very differently shaped cups / wires. Have to send it back, I will not try with another cup size, I don't think this model will ever fit me.
