Finally I'm reviewing this one. I've had it for about 2 months now but only in the last few weeks I was wearing it more often. So I can say more about how it wears now.
First about the bra: The Elomi Sports bra features underwires and non padded cups. The material is very high quality, sturdy and at the same time it is very soft to the touch. I really have no complains about it and I'm usually sensitive to itchy fabric. The wires are rather wide (like Elomi brand is known for) and quite tall. The wires don't bother me under my arms. The shoulder straps are ... wide and comfortable. I have no issues. Also the bra itself does so much support that I can almost wear it with straps off if I need relief on my shoulders.
The cups are wide, tall and of average depth (I wouldn't call them shallow, but they definitely keep the boobs close to chest as opposed to a projected cup shape). The wide wires don't bother me on this bra, I think the shape is even better to keep boobs close to chest. If It had more narrow wires there have to be deeper cups and more projection which would affect support and allow for more jiggling / movement of the boobs in the bra. I also do very well with the tall cups, no breast tissue is escaping. I actually think that the bra fits me in this size because it is tall and wide! If it weren't I'd need to size up for depth. I feel some light pressure on my sternum from the gore, but it is bearable. I also feel that my boobs are pushed close to my chest, but it it is nowhere near that constricting feeling I get in padded bras that do the same. For example 32J - Panache Sport » Sports Bra (5021) gave me pain and I had trouble breathing after wearing it for 30 min and this Elomi bra I can wear for a full day.
Wearing experience: The bra saved my neck! That's why I love it. Last week I suddenly got terrible neck pain, my boobs had lost some upper fullness and all my bras were ill-fitting. This already caused me pain. I had no smaller bras at hand to help me and I tried to wear my 32JJ with the band on tightest setting which helped some, then I remembered my neglected sports bra. Oh the relief!!! I wore the bra as an everyday bra and it helped me so much with the pain. I also wore it for full day of moving around boxes and stuff and house cleaning and it was amazing. Under clothing it looks good enough, it is not noticable that it is not an average bra. I will add clothed pics. I jumped around a bit and it feels okay, it really limits the movement of my boobs.
