This bra has the softer Elomi wires so it stretches back more. I loved the Gothic arch at the bottom which gives me lots of comfort at my high stomach but the diamond mesh is a bit scratchy- it’s lined with beige non stretch lingerie mesh. The lace on top is soft. It’s very pretty. I would buy it again in it’s pink color way and put in firmer wires I think.
I really love the look and fit of this bra but I can’t stand the fabric. Fits like my favorite 42HH - Elomi » Kim Plunge Bra (4340) but the fabric is coarse and scratchy. Too bad because I love the color.
This bra seemed to fit pretty well at first, but I lost a lot of weight very quickly after buying it(I weighed about 203lbs on the day my order was delivered, as of about a week ago I am 188lbs). Even when I first got it there was some puckering towards the bottom of the cup, and I could tell the stretch lace on the top of the cup was hiding some fit issues. The wires are super wide - I've continued wearing it despite my weight loss for lack of other bras to wear, and I've had to use the tightest hook already and the wires go all the way to my back, which causes some awkward fitting. I would have to try it again in a 30JJ or 30K to comment better, I feel most of my fit issues with this bra are due to rapid weight loss changing my measurements noticeably, though the wires my extend a bit wide still.
The ballet color of this bra is so pretty! But, alas, this is an Elomi that has the elastic along the top of the cup which doesn't fit my shape. This one also seems a lot smaller in the cup than other Elomi styles (Matilda, Morgan). The top of the cup is really digging in more than Morgan. The fabric of this bra is very scratchy, also. Cups are wide and it seems more shallow than Matilda or Morgan.
This is decent compared to the Matilda. It is just a bit snugger than I would have liked it to be considering my tummy protrudes outwards right underneath my bust line. The stretch lace is nice, perhaps a little too snug near the center gore if I am positioned wrong. The wire sits great where it does considering it is more angled at a slope compared to the near straight up of the Matilda.
This bra was probably the best fit for me (FOB, short roots, close-set on top) of all the styles and sizes of Elomi that I've tried, but the fabric was too stiff and scratchy and the wires were a bit firm/tight for my pain situation. The lace on the edge of cups also rubbed uncomfortably into my tail of spence. It's possible that a lighter color fabric would be softer, and that it might get softer after washing, but it's not comfortable enough for me to take that chance. I might revisit in the future if my pain gets better. It is very supportive.
This Charley fits slightly more like Morgan when I compare it to the 4380 version of the Charley. The top part of the stretch lace cups have a line of elastic along the top which cuts into my tissue. Going up a cup size might fix that, but I'm also not filling out the bottom of this one like I do in the 4380, making me think it's less projected. This underwire seems slightly more stiff than my Matilda and as I wear it, it's not totally comfortable. The wires are wide on me and I think going up a cup size might make that worse... not sure if I should try.
I love the pattern on the cups. It looks very nice!
