So pretty, this is very silky and shimmery like what you'd expect from sateen. The bra is a little flimsy in the cups compared to my other elomies, this does not have the side panels you find in the plunges. It's a lovely bra, fits really well, has strong elastic and feels so well made it's like wearing air. The gor doesn't work if you have center breast fullness in combo with firm tissue because the wires are very much in charge. Which is a plus if you have a bra that is also the right shape, this bra would be great for someone with bottom fullness and a normal space between their breasts. It would also be great for anyone who has softer breast tissue, it is remarkably good at shaping for an unlined bra. Personally it is a bad shape match for me I'm gonna stick to elomi plunges they love me best.
This bra is cute, comfortable, and supportive. The band was a little loose for my liking, but that's my fault for buying the wrong band size (I usually wear a 38). My breasts have unfortunately increased several sizes since purchasing this bra, so it no longer fits in the cups. I wish this bra wasn't discontinued so I could find it in my current size!
The band is snug but stretchy. Even on at it's tightest, I could still get my hand comfortably under the band. The cups are too big and I don't fill out the tops. Tightening the band help a lot, but there was still some room in the top of the cups. Empty space is very obvious because it's a full cup. The center seems high, but it lays flat against my sternum. The underwire goes too high under my arm and it's not comfortable.
Fits like a dream. Can wear all day and not think about wanting to remove. Gore tacks perfectly at a good height, doesn't poke under the arms, etc. I have already gone from the first hooks to the second, but it seems to have stabilized there. It's not available in a smaller band, so I'm glad of that. I have it in raisin and also in black/white with pink bows. My only quibble is that the pink bows stand out too much since I try to coordinate it to not be glaringly obvious under my shirts, and while the black/white scheme I can coordinate pretty well, the pink jumps out and says hi!
This is a very strange fit... the underwire reaches around my side almost to my shoulder blades. the cups arent deep enough, it feels like my breasts are being flattened.. but there is empty fabric at the sides, under my arms.. as though whoever made this bra thought women's breasts are in their armpits. the lift and support is great, the shape is a little pointy, but overall not a good fit for me.
I got this bra primarily because it was recommended as having a similar fit to the Caitlyn, which I do well in, but with a lower gore, which is always a plus. Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way for me. The biggest issue, I think, was how weak the wires were -way to flexible and easily distorted for my taste. In terms of sizing,I would also say this ran smaller than the Caitlyn, as I'm sort of between a 34hh bordering on j in the Caitlyn and a 36h was definitely too small in this.
The biggest downer was probably the shape for me - very wide, east/west, and low; I wasn't really getting lift.
On the plus side, the bra was pretty - I felt sort of like a black and white movie star in it, and the fabric felt lovely and silky.
This bra fits better than most other bras I have. It doesn't ride up, but it does stretch a bit after the first day of wear, and I start the first day in the second column of hooks. It doesn't dig under the arms, which is a bonus. Most of the bras I've ever bought do.
UPDATED 1 WEEK LATER: So, now that I'm done with my period, this bra is less spectacular. I can't be the only woman whose breast get larger during that time. The band is now far too loose on this bra and I have some room in the tops of the cups and the sides. Oh well - maybe I can at least wear it during that time of the month!
This style is a good fit for me and provides a nice shape. plunge and balcony style seem to fit my boobs' shape best, but this one works okay. the bra is well made and quite pretty. straps are solid and wide and do not dig into my shoulders. gore sits perfectly flat on my sternum and the under-wires do not dig into my armpits. nice and comfy, but not comfy enough to sleep in, (for me, that is the ultimate comfort test - can i sleep in it comfortably?). this is a full coverage cup.
I actually really like this bra. Too bad it doesn't actually come in my size. I think I will see if I can pick it up on sale, though, and tighten the band up with some stitches so that it will fit. The cup fits well. It fits very similarly to my Goddess Kiera's, I think it's pretty much the same basic shape but with pretty patterned material and lace detailing on the cup edges. It features my favorite feature, the side support panel. (Although I could use a little bit more coverage on the outside edge of the cup.) Like the Kiera, it creates a natural, slightly downward-pointing shape. Easy to wear, but certainly nothing too fancy. I think the center gore is a bit lower than the Kiera, which I really like.
I really, really wish Elomi (and Goddess) would make more sizes. I would love to see everything come at least down to a 34 band, 32 even better and up to a K cup.
