    • Thanks for all your great reviews! I am trying to figure out my true size and find styles that work well for me. It seems that my bust has some similarities to yours and so your reviews are especially helpful to me in deciding what to try next. I really appreciate the knowledge you share!

    Oh! I haven't come by any other styles yet that fit as well as this one. After settling into the cups, there is no noticeably gapping on my small side nor any noticeable cutting in on my large size. Amazing.

    While it isn’t nearly as plunge-y as the (admittedly less well-fitting) Cacique bras I’ve worn in the past, I do really appreciate the low center gore … it does allow me to wear a modest scoop- or v-neck. Most bras in my size want to peek out of any moderate or low neckline https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> They tend to feature excessive coverage, in my opinion, ... and tall center gores that can be a bit uncomfortable when they fully tack. The 40HH - Elomi » Betty Plunge Bra (8170) allows me to me to wear quite a few garments (though no deep Vs or deep, wide scoops) that cannot be worn with my 42GG - Elomi » Caitlyn Underwire Side Support (8030) , 42H - Goddess » Rose Banded Underwire (6080) , or 42GG - Panache » Tango Ii Balconette (3251) and for this I am very grateful.

    Are the the wires a smidge too wide and do the cups rub the front of my armpits just a little? Well, yes. But these are minor quibbles. This bra fits pretty darn well and lets me wear some of my favorite clothes.

    Didn't fit

    This bra is pretty off and on, but pretty comes at a price. The mesh is a bit rough and if not properly adjusted can cause "sawing" at the bottom. Like all Elomi's it pouches out on the sides for me, giving that Yaya Han effect (too round, looks fake). so that the boobs are pushed out onto my arms when typing, etc. They don't poke under the arms, but the wire kind of rubs my arms if I don't have on clothes. With clothes it is fine.

    The cups are almost a fit, but just tight enough at the top to cause the ghost of quad-boob. It's not noticeable under clothing.

    I would not keep this except for the fact that the color is MINE! and I need a true plunge bra. This color is on the way out, but purple came in for fall, so...

    I'm glad to have it. Wish it came in 40J

    Turquoise colorway

      I've got this one, and I'm still debating whether or not to keep it. I THOUGHT while trying on in stores that Elomi was perfect for my shape, but when I got home I realized they all give me the upside down 7 shape. I got a 34GG and took in the band -- and now I'm quadding in it. For now, it's the only plunge bra I have. But man... I was so disappointed. Can't even return it since I altered it.

      In general Elomi's are my best fit as well but I really hate the "side slings." Your description as "pouching out at the sides" is really perfect.

    • Thanks KristinR & jcupjedi for your comments. Elomi is so close to perfect...but how do they just miss? I had good luck with 40HH - Elomi » Persia Bandless Bra (8850) at least.

    • I am in your general size range but have trouble with plunges because I am older and have very soft tissue. I would also suggest that you try Elomi Bras on the "Abi/Maggie/Eva/Yolanda frame. These have gore heights between the plunges and the Kaitlyn, Libby, Renee, Rita heights.
