This is my favorite bra, and went the longest before needing to be taken in. It's made of a firm fabric that doesn't sag, and it's cut high enough on the sides to prevent breast tissue from squishing under the arm. I just wish it came in more colors!
Love the support. It's a big bra but I also find it pretty. The cup material doesn't stretch and that makes getting the fit difficult I think. I ordered this in an FF not knowing for sure if that would work and I believe an F would have been perfect. It's just too big I think. The band is perfect though.
This bra didn't fit well. I think it might be because the cup was a bit large (wrinkling in the upper cup) and my breasts are bottom heavy. I had issues with the gore being to high, the wires poked a bit under the arm and the thing tried to "choke my armpits" by rubbing on my chest near my underarm. I had to fasten it on the last hook....but it was pre-owned and may have had a little bit of previous stretching. The band was very comfy tho and I like the width of the straps
The band is a little loose in a 36G but overall this bra fits me very well. Good lift and support with a natural profile in clothes. My biggest issue is that it gives me a very East/West look which I don't care for. That said this bra is extremely comfortable, no back-aches at all and I routinely wear it for 12 hour shifts. I have owned it for almost a year and machine wash it. My husband has also dried it a few times in the dryer and it has help up fantastically! Very good quality. I will definitely be buying more Elomi products for work.
I am adding this bra to Bratabase more than a year after it was purchased. It was worn as one of four bras (3 Elomi Cleo, 1 Elomi Jasmine) in heavy rotation from the time it was purchased until one year later, so the measurements given probably include stretching.
This bra no longer fits me, but it fit me perfectly from when it was purchased in August 2011 until early 2012 when my size changed from 36G to 34H. Unfortunately I do not have those measurements on file so I cannot say at what point it was perfect...but since this lovely bra has been discontinued it probably ...doesn't matter much.
This is one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn and I was frequently scouring online to look for more like them. The fit was perfect, the shape was nice, and the comfort was amazing.
I am not especially fond of how it looks. The 'nude' is perhaps the ugliest of the lot, with little contrast in the stitching (which, of course, required for it to work under light clothing). The 'black' shows the greatest contrast and the embroidery looks nicest on this bra. The 'tulip' is my favorite of the three colors I own. The color is really nice but the embroidery doesn't stand out as much as it could - it is basically the same as the nude whereas I think it would look better if it were the same as the black. Overall, these are pretty boring bras in appearance, but with a full-coverage bra you're probably looking for a daily workhorse rather than something extremely pretty, so I don't consider the non-fussy appearance to be a bad thing.
Note that there is a HUGE difference in how the bra is made between G and GG cups. The band is significantly thicker, and the underwire goes MUCH higher and jabbed me in the armpits. When I tried the 34GG in February 2012 I found it completely unwearable. Read more 230 more words
