This bra is just overall too big for me. The wires are much too wide and not quite firm enough (they go all the way behind my underarm). The gore doesn't tack. I'll admit that it's comfortable, but it doesn't give the support I need, and the band is always riding up even on the smallest clasp. Even though it's too big, I still get a bit of quadboob. The cups aren't deep enough for me. I'm not a fan of this bra. I need something with narrow wires and deeper cups.

-Comfortable, nice material makes it a terrific everyday bra
-Big, generous deep cups
-Straps are kind of rough around the edges, they could definitely do with being wider and/or padded
-Band seems stretchy
Cons for me:
-Underwire digs into my ribs a bit. May be because of too large of band
I really like these bras. I have bought several in differing sizes and I always return to it because it's so comfortable to wear even in the wrong size! And it's very supportive. I feel like my girls aren't going anywhere. However, the band rides up a bit in the back for me, I have gaps between the top ... of the breast and the straps, and tightening the straps to eliminate the gap makes the whole bra really tight, so tight it's like trying to put on a 30 band on me (my underbust is 31 inches).
Yet it still rides up. So I think this bra would work better for me in a 32KK but elomi unfortunately does not go up that high. I doubt it would fix the gap and the underwires adding uncomfortable pressure to me may or may not be fixed by this. My breasts are also too close together for this bra for it to ever sit on my sternum I've learned now. Still, it's silky and comfortable and provides a sturdy, decent, if slightly pointed shape so I will still wear this until I find something better.

This is the only @Elomi I own. The cups of this bra are not a rounded as most @Elomis so this fits well. There is gapping on the upper sides of the cups because I do not have a lot of side boob but the gapping is only noticeable to me. I do get a slight quadboob with this bra because of the angle of the cups. This bra is just ok.

This bra is pretty, for a fairly basic bra. Three of the four cup sections are smooth satin with the upper part mesh with embroidery and the band mesh. Like most (all?) Elomi bras, it gives a somewhat wide and downward slanted ("natural-looking" ) shape.
It is fairly comfortable, though the bit of band under the cups immediately rolls up.
I really can't figure out what's going on with the fit of this bra, neither size 34K nor 34JJ seems to be quite right. I appreciate that this one comes in a 34K, unlike many other Elomi bras, but I think I still need another band size smaller. Or else for the band not to be so stretchy. I think the 34K I tried on was more stretched out than the 34JJ, so that explains some of the band-fit difference.
The blackberry is a very pretty purple.
