    Didn't fit

    This is one of my first bra attempts in trying to find my best fit. Overall, it's my most comfortable bra I own at this point, but I can't say this is "it" yet. When I first got this, I realized that the 38 band was just way too tight, even on the loosest setting. I bought an Elomi Bjou Soree at the same time to try a plunge style. The Bjou was way more comfortable in the band even though they are supposedly the same size, so lesson learned there. I am able to wear this bra with an extender, giving me an extra inch till it ... stretches.

    The gore was really tight against my sternum, till I added the extender, but even then, I'm very aware it's there when I stand up.

    The cup is filled in from the bottom to about 2/3rd to the top. Then I have wrinkling fabric, but it's a heck of a lot better than my other purchases to date. I think I am FOT, because doing the lean over test, I've got a lot of volume above the midline. However, I am tall rooted with pendulous breasts, and very soft tissue. Overall, I have a rounded, slightly pointed look while wearing this, but at least I'm not going east/west. (Bjou, my gawd it's bad!)

    The underwire was a big problem. The first day I wore it, which was without the extender, I had bruises where the wire stopped under my arms. The wire stops about an inch below where the cup fabric comes up to. Next time, I added the extender, which helped, except it still dug into my sides. I pulled out my older calcique bra for comparison, that never bothered me with that part of the underwire, and adjusted the underwire to a more U shape, and now the bra is mostly wearable for a day. I have to occasionally tweak the wires throughout the day. I hope this gets better. If I understand, Elomi has the longest wire lenths on the market in my size, so I can't imagine finding a bra that would have enough length to not squash migrated breast tissue, without having the actual cup be enormous on me. So, I've got as workable a fix as I can get right now.

    Another odd thing is that I'm very aware of underarm sweat in this bra. The cup fabric is not breathable, as I end up shedding a bra that's sopping wet in that spot, at the of the day. I've never had that happen before in 26 years of wearing bras.

    I know this seems all negative, but it's just my assessment of what's some issues of a doable bra, till I find "the one."

      Can you do narrower widths? If so I can recommend Sculptresse by Panache which will have taller wires on the side. They are also narrower and more up front, and many shapes are better for FOT
      than Elomi. Most Elomis are best for FOB.

    • Do you have any style recs from thier brand?

      I guess I have an average projection. I thought up until now that I had a shallow projection, but I really reassessed, using the guides on /a bra that fits, just now. Maybe I have been looking for the wrong thing. I just have long tubular breasts that just lay on my stomach, so they tend to flatten out because they have a surface to spead out on. I have very triangle shaped body, so my breasts tend to look small in comparison when in a bra.

    • I'm thinking this bra might work: 40GG - Sculptresse ยป Pure Moulded T-shirt Bra (6291) looks ok for measurements compared to your Elomi. It's very soft and gives a rounded gathered profile. All the reviews on here for it seem to be positive.

      I loved Sculptresse Kitty (8045) for projection and the open top which is nice for full on top breasts and has a very forward, round profile, a lot like the Cleo Marcie Balconnet Bra (6831) but with much softer fabric. It is discontinued but is on Amazon and eBay. Styles like it are the Marcie and the also discontinued Sculptresse Charisse (8055).

      Sculptresse Chi-chi Full Cup Bra (7695) Is less immediately projected and more rounded but a lot of folks like the shape and the band is phenomenal. Sculptresse Flirtini Balconnet Bra (7685) might be ok for tall roots but might cut in if you're very full on top. It's also a bit wider. Happy bra hunting!

      Thank you so very much <3

      This gives me some better direction than where I was thinking before.

      No worries! There's less options for us at this size so we have to stick together. Also check out roxannelovesbras
      And RollsAndCurves and her blog because they have great reviews and are in similar sizes to us.

    This bra is adorable in the light pinky shade. There's just such a cutesy feel to it that I was never able to get with my old Walmart bras!

    It does have that satin sheen to it, which some people hate, but I think is gorgeous, especially in this color scheme.

    The upper half of the gore (the very tip) did not tack, which didn't seem to be a fit issue so much as the way it was made or used before it got to me. However, it isn't very noticeable, and it doesn't show in shirts, so it doesn't really matter.

    Overall, the fit is perfect compared to my 44D days, and I would totally get more bras from this company if I had the cash. This one was very well made and super comfortable.

    40GG

    Fits

    Almost three years ago, I wrote the following, "The bra is very comfortable most of the day. Toward the end of the day, I can feel the band at the bottom. It's odd, because I can easily fit two fingers under the band - it's as if there is less give on the bottom section of the band than the rest of it. The shape is very nice and it fits well. I'm full all over and it doesn't cut at the top. The name has changed on it, for what it's worth, and it's now called the Yolanda. I would buy it ... again."

    Today, I never wear this bra. When I first found the correct sizing for me, Elomis were my staple. Weight changes, time, and possibly migration has changed that. Many of the Elomi wires now seem too wide for me, some are set too far apart between the cups, and many do not work with the projection I have. This bra is now too small in the cups (it is close, but not quite large enough) but even if the cups fit, they do not fit as well asit did. I had not worn it in awhile because I'd put on about 15 pounds and was wearing a larger cup and band size. I tried it on today and was surprised at how wide the wires were! Some with an older Briony 40GG and the Persia 40G. The top edge of the Persia fit better than the Eva or Briony, even though it is a cup size smaller, likely because of the lace. The Eva, especially, cut into the edge of my breasts, which are relatively equal. Not sure if it is just not full enough on top; it almost seemed that the cups were just set too far away from each other. When I pulled the center gore material together - as if to narrow it - the cups seems to fit fit.

    Ultimately, am on the hunt for narrower wires and gore.

    Didn't fit

    I bought this bra even though the band is too big because I have a super tight budget and limited access to bras I can try on in a store while i figure out my size. The quality of the bra is good, and I actually really like the chocolate brown color. The velvet trim adds a bit of luxury. What I don't like about this bra is the shape it gives me, which it kind of pointed and splayed. My boobs need some help to achieve the rounded and projected look I want, and this doesn't do it. I will need to alter it soon to make the band a bit tighter, but it will do for now.

    Didn't fit

    This bra isn't quite my size, but I bought it anyway because I have a super limited budget and it fit well enough to work for now. The quality seems really good so far with nice sturdy straps, very soft satiny cups, and strong elastic on the band. I have the nude/peach color which isn't super attractive, but it's good under light colored shirts. As for the style, it keeps my boobs kind of separate and gives me a a slightly retro pointy shape. I'm okay with it, but I would prefer a more rounded and projected look. It's very comfortable and the velvet trim is a luxurious touch.

    It is pretty comfortable, although it gives me a slightly pointy effect. The seams are visible under some clothing, and the almost-horizontal seam across the cup wrinkles a tiny bit even though I believe I have the right cup size.

    This bra was the best size fit in the Elmois I tried on, but I'm clearly between sizes for at least this particular style. The tops of the cups wrinkled the tiniest bit, but it wasn't noticeable under shirts. The gore didn't quite sit flat, though it was close. If I sized up in the cups so the gore would sit flat, the wrinkles got worse. I didn't decide to keep this one, though I could have as it fit pretty well. I'm going to try a different style and see if that helps.

    This bra is not owned any more

    40J...I seriously almost decided to keep this bra, despite the fact the the wires seemed to be too wide. It seems to be the first bra in my journey that wasn't too small in the cups (no quad-boob/spillage), AND gave me a shape I like. HOWEVER, the gore HURTS and I just can't live with that. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    38J, I think the gore may be too wide for me, but I'd like to try a larger cup size if I can find it. I measured the gore height to be 3.5", and the cup separation as 1.25".
