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.😄

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.
