    36G

    Didn't fit

    This review is for the black version, 36G non-altered, on a body with soft breast tissue and a narrow-ish root, with a very tired Cooper's ligament (not self-supporting). Bra is approximately 2 months old at the time of writing this review, with regular wear (2-3 times a week.). No previous owner.
    Please forgive me if the bra measurements seem odd at all; I've never really measured them before and it's not as easy as I thought it would be!
    I love this bra. Oh, I love this bra. Even though I shouldn't, as it doesn't fit, not quite.
    For the technical bits: the wires are too wide for my frame. I ... have empty, unusable cup space at the sides because the wire is too wide. (Unknown whether this is because the band is technically a size too large, or because Elomi wires are just a smidge too wide for me in general.) It's one cup size too small; if I swoop-and-scoop, I have quadboob. Since this is the second-best fit I've got right now, I just jiggle myself in and try not to think about it (shame on me :(). Even without scooping, though, I have slight quadboob that worsens as the day goes on.
    The bra cup itself is molded, which is a flexible and soft black material on the inside that does not irritate my skin in the least; the outside of the bra, underneath the embroidered mesh overlay, is beige. The black mesh overlay is attached only at the edges of the cups, but there hasn't been an issue with wrinkling. The seams and embroidery are very, very visible through most shirts, though.
    The band is firm, and only slightly too loose on my 34.5 inch ribs. It's wide and feels very comfortable. (It is worth noting, however, that the left side of the band under the cup and partway along the wing does enjoy flipping curling itself upward. I'm not sure if this is because of my body [tiny roll under my underbust crease] and posture, or the bra.)
    Now, aesthetically speaking (which I'm much better at; I apologize). Even though my breasts aren't full on top (I'm not even sure if they're full on the bottom, either...) I still get a pleasant shape from this bra - a very separate, lifted, round profile with what's often described as "Marie Antoinette cleavage". It does end up looking a little shelf-like once my breasts have settled in, though.
    As this bra has been discontinued and I don't have a huge amount of knowledge about how this bra may work with other bodies, I can't recommend anything in particular, except maybe sizing up in the cup if you find yourself at the larger side of your cupsize.

    38G

    Didn't fit

    My usual Elomi size is 36GG, the same as Freya. But since Elomi runs a bit tighter in the band than Freya, & this style tops out at a G, I went with 38G.

    My boobs are full on top & wide-ish at the root, but with some projection.
    Elomi is generally too wide for me. I have Hermione & Abbi; both are wider & more shallow & give a more spread out shape this Lara. This is actually my favorite fit from Elomi so far. The shape is gorgeous & rounded. Uplifted, but not jacked up to my chin. The padding is fairly thin & non-bulky, much more ... natural looking & comfy than the Deco, for e.g.

    But it's not perfect. The sides come higher than I like - or than I think is necessary. It's what makes Panache unwearable for me, even at 5'9". This isn't that bad, but at 5" the wing is at my pit, where no bra needs to be. The only discomfort I felt was chafing at that point. The straps, now these they got right. They are set at the shoulder but not too wide, as Curvy Kate's are, so no chafing there. And they are a great soft, wide material with no poorly finished edges that result in cutting as I find with Panache & CK. Cup size is not generous, but it could have used a little more depth.

    Also, these cups are cut looooow. This is a true 1/2 cup. They ended an inch above my nips. Though I felt quite secure. No danger of popping out even when bending, etc. Gave a great look under a tissue T, wo no show thru.

    38G

    Didn't fit

    Another gorgeous bra that doesn't work for my shape :(

    The cups are vertically seamed and give a really nice round silhouette. Unfortunately the cups were too shallow for me, shape-wise, and the band was a size too big.

    Full on top breasts will benefit greatly from the open top on this bra - no digging in and shape-induced quad boob - but they'll have to be shallower FOT boobs than mine.

    There's also a good amount of immediately lower projection on these cups, so an even shape would probably do even better than a super full on top bust.

    Ah, what I wouldn't give for this bra to fit...
