I took apart my previous 40JJ - Elomi » Kim Plunge Bra (4340) and wanted a second one, so here we are. The bra fits better now that I have gained weight and solidly fit this size but the bottoms of the cups are still a little too shallow at the wire, and the gore is still too wide. However, the lack of pointiness now that I fill the cups better is nice. After narrowing the gore and changing the wires, my two standard changes, it should be fine, if not my best fit.
It’s funny to compare this “plunge” with my 40J - Curvy Kate » Dragonfly Plunge Bra (SG5411). This fits very much like a full cup bra on me because of my short roots and the majority of the depth is at the center. With the dragonfly I’ve got a real plunge shape and the majority of the depth is at the bottom and sides. Now if I could get a combination of the two!
I had to wear this bra for a while and do my usual wire swap before I decided how I feel about the fit. I'm happy to say that it is gorgeous and is going to work well for me.
So I got this bra in 40JJ and thought it would fit exactly like my 40JJ - Elomi » Jodi Plunge Bra (4190) as it is based on the same pattern. While the fit is quite similar, my Jodi had a stretchier band and cups deeper at the wire. I think this really shows that all bra brands have differences in individual bras (I had ...two slightly differently fitting Sachis as well). This style by Elomi is the second best style/shape I own by them, after the 40J - Elomi » Tia Bandless Bra (4280) . My first in this cut, the 38JJ - Elomi » Lottie Plunge Bra (4180) is a workhorse I wore nearly exclusively for over a year- it is now limp and worn out, sadly. This bra will replace it.
The print is absolutely to die for. I mean seriously it's so beautiful. The flowers are white and linear on a more bluish toned red background. I wish the lace matched the color- it's more of a warm toned red. However, it's a slight difference, and I like the kitschy pattern of it- very folk, which is the whole vibe of the bra.
The fabrics are all soft and silky, as are the elastics. The straps have matching fabric sewn on the top front. All in all, really a comfortable, all day wearing bra, wrapped in the most beautiful package. Read more 182 more words
I had to put in wires that are 1.5 inches shorter on the side and about 1.5 inches narrower and I can finally wear a bra with wires all day again, which is great because I was getting shoulder and neck pain from my wireless bras. I’ve tried this bra or variations of it so many times: 38JJ - Elomi » Lottie Plunge Bra (4180) I wore for over a year 3 times a week until it wore out. The wires don’t work for me but the rest of it does.
Too tight in the cup and loose in the band for me. Needed a different size, went up in the cup and down in band. Snagged a 34H and it's now my go-to bra. It was the 36GG for a small moment, but turns out I was bloated for shark week. 34H fits for the rest of the month.
This bra fits like a dream. I got it in another color (Black) and I'm so glad I found it. I thought the 36GG fit me the best, but the band on that is a bit too loose. It fits great when I'm on my cycle though, so that's nice (I was searching during my bloat period without realizing it, lul), but for the rest of the month, this is my everyday bra. My first test drive was a day at Universal Hollywood. It was a long day, on and off heat. The bra was comfortable the whole time. It's not the most breathable under super heat, but ...it will serve me well indoors and the short bits I'm outside. This is a copy pasta of the review for the other color of this same bra, since it fits exactly the same, but I want to post both of them. The pink one is so pretty. Oh man. I almost didn't measure this bra, but I haven't worn it outside of trying it on, so I thought the measurements were still valuable. They are slightly different than my other 34H Elomi Kim (black) that I measured. It might be due to the limited wear. Read more 96 more words

I love this bra. I want one in every color. I have such trouble with either the gore being too high, or the cut near the armpits being too high, the straps being too wide, or the wires being too narrow. I don't have any of those worries with this one. The pattern is so cute. I've been trying on bras for weeks, so to find one that I can wear all day, including lounging about on the couch, and it doesn't pinch, chafe, or stab into me, I'm so relieved!
I'm in the process of trying to find my size in this bra, because I like the fabric (very soft) and the color (neutral), so I would really like it to work. In some sizes it almost fits, but 34GG is not one of them. The band is snug but livable in 34", but everything else is too small so I'm getting quadboob as well as butt crack cleavage above the tacking gore. I will be returning this bra.
