    This bra is a band and cup size above what I usually get, but it was so unexpectedly cheap that I decided to risk it, and alter as needed.

    First of all, it is a gorgeous turquoise color. The embroidery and bows are an almost iridescent violet. I love it. The material itself is a somewhat stiff double-layered mesh. This didn't bother me, in fact I enjoyed the increased support and reduced jiggle from this strong mesh, but people with sensitive skin may have a problem.

    I also love the wide, soft, comfortable straps. They're fully adjustable and absolutely do not cut into ... the top of my shoulders, even when I overtightened them. The band is also very comfy. This one is a size too big - I'm wearing it on the tightest hook and will need to take it in after a few more wears - and yet the wide band is still very supportive, doesn't dig in, and does a remarkable job of smoothing down that roll of back fat I struggle with.

    This bra is marketed as a 'plunge' and in this respect I am a somewhat disappointed. It covers more real estate on my bust than I hoped. It's approaching a full coverage bra on the cups, especially toward the sides, and then dips down to a plunge at the gore. This bra works with most of my narrow v-neck clothes, but my scoop necks show a little slice of the embroidered roses.

    The cups are wide and deep - too wide for me by almost an inch on each side, but that doesn't seem to affect support. The depth is close to perfect, only a few millimeters of wrinkling at one point under my breasts. I think that may be solved by bending the wires to conform to my ribs. There is a bit of wrinkling at the top of the cups which I will need to alter, but overall the cup seems well constructed. The cups come up quite high at the sides, almost too high but so far I've felt pressure but no wire-stabbing or welting from it. A strip of elastic runs along the inner edges of the cups, likely to help keep breasts from jiggling free at the plunge. In this respect I'm glad I went up a cup size as the elastic, to my surprise, doesn't dig into my all-over-full breasts, but women with very soft tissue or upper fulness may have a problem with this.

    Overall, this bra gives my breasts is a moderately uplifted, subtly pointy shape. It is not a bombshell cleavage bra, but it is cute, comfortable, and works with much of my wardrobe.

    Elomi Betty, AW12 Navy

    + very supportve
    + gore tacks
    + Straps are fully adjustable
    + it looks cute https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    - very wide wires
    - slightly pointy shape
    - cup edge runs tights and tends to cut in


    Important note: I have altered the Betty from a 36HH to a 32JJ! I cannot say if 36HH ran true to size since that size never fitted me. I usually wear 32K.

    About the bra itself: it's the first plunge bra I tried that keeps my boobs in the cups despite the low gore. The cups are not very full on top friendly since the cup edge runs tight (I think ... that is the main reason why it works so well as a plunge – stiff fabric keeps boobs from falling out) but it also cuts in slightly. It's not very visible under tops, so I ignore it.
    The wires are very stable but also very wide. The shape from the side is slightly pointy and from the front the bra does as all Elomi bras make my boobs look wider.
    It works well under low cut tops as the gore does not show. It is no cleavage bra. It's a plunge bra but it won't give cleavage.

    Edit March 2014: Bra is not wearable anymore due to cutting in of the cups. Definitely not full on top friendly. Cup edges run very tight. I only recommend this for full on bottom and somewhat wide boobs. Wires are much too wide on me and end on my back.

    I've learned that I don't like it when the gore is this low. Even when I fit in the cups well, they always bounce out near the gore and I am just not comfortable with that. I liked the Betty, it was comfortable, but... I knew that I would not be comfortable wearing it.
