    40GG

    Fits

    I am a recent bratabase convert and have a lot to learn about bra-fit principles and best practices. So take what I say with a grain of salt. I bought this bra in two sizes, 42GG and 40GG. I first bought the 42GG and thought it was too big (but kept it anyways). So I sized down to a 40GG. This review is for both sizes.

    The Matilda is a 4-part (counting the side panel) underwire plunge bra. The side panel and the lower cups are non-stretch fabric and the top cups are non-stretch sheer panel with “stunning beaded lace embroidery”. There is also an “opulent silver ... ring detailing”. Both the “stunning” and “opulent” elements are a tad cheesy so you should not get too excited about them. The non-stretch sheer panels might seem a little flimsy (it is a single layer bra) but it works well for me, but I am not full-on-top and I do not need as much support where the fabric seems flimsy. (Flimsy is not the best word to use, but I am leaving it). This will be a good bra to wear in the summer time. I do think that the non-stretch element is what saves the day.

    Both of my Elomi Matilda bras are my favorite bras. Both the 40GG and the 42GG seem to fit, both are comfortable, and both give me the support, lift and shape that I want. This speaks well for the flexibility of the design of this bra because I have two different sizes that are not sister sizes and I am satisfied with both. Two thumbs up.

      Hey, welcome! Great review and great that both sizes work for you! I find that in a few soft cup bras too - must be their flexibility in the cup itself due to it being soft. A little snug on the straps and they both fit fine. Glad you are enjoy Elomi...and thanks for the measurements...I am a bra band sister and we can use all the 40/42 band measurements we can get!

      Thanks for the nice comment. I will be sure to check out your reviews!

      "All the 40/42 band measurments we can get!"

      That is exactly correct! I always check for 40FF and 38G measurements, and there are so few!!

    • 3

      Lack of measurements in this size range must be why Bratabase doesn't give me much recommendations.

    • My recommendations are all messed up because I messed up my measurements on the first day I joined. :(

    32GG

    Didn't fit

    The Great Amazon Prime Wardrobe Try-On, Pt 2!
    My shape: FOB, narrow roots/shoulders, soft tissue, 32G (though I'm thinking maybe more 30G since a lot of these 32 bands are too stretchy for me!)
    Fit: This is laughably too big for me. I'm super disappointed, because I have read so many rave reviews for this brand, and this style in particular! If they made smaller cup sizes, I would be in better shape.
    Appearance: I love the darker beige color of this bra. The fabric isn't that soft, though; the cups are made of a stiff lace.

    This bra is not owned any more

    38H

    Didn't fit

    I'll post more after I've worn this for a day or two.

    I've been eyeing this bra recently. I ordered one online after the bra calculator estimated me as a 40GG, but I know it's going to be too big in the band now. I've gone bra shopping multiple times this week and finally came home with the 38H Matilda and a couple other bras. I ended up with the nude colorway. It's pretty in the nude, but I think the purple colorway is prettier.

    The band runs big!! To give you an example, the other bras I got in 38I today are about 30 inches unstretched. This ... is 33. So this is more like a 40 band. Keep that in mind. It's a comfortable bra (most Elomi bras are great for all-day comfort in my experience). I will have to either wear this on a tighter hook or take in the band. For today, I'm trying it out on the 2nd hook with the knowledge that I'll have to shorten the band at some point.

    It does give a rounded shape and I think I like this one better under clothes than I liked my Amelia Spacer bra, which minimized the boobs and pushed them to the sides. I think this one has more center projection than the Amelia did. It's prettier as well.

    I don't fully fill the bottom of the cup due to the shape. My breasts are somewhat even. I thought they leaned a little toward Full-on-Bottom, but the salesgirl said they were Full-on-Top and that's why I had that tiny bit of wrinkling at the bottom of the cup. I tend to wear balconettes and half-cups for the most part.

    Update: After wearing it for a couple weeks, I find that band is a bit loose for me and that the wires at the gore press on me. I can't lay down in the bra, which is a problem I used to have with some Cleo bras which had narrow, high wires. I do still like the bra, but I may have to take in the band at some point.

    34GG

    Hasn't set fit

    Shockingly good fit on first glance. I bought it used on eBay in a fit of desperation after weight gain when I couldn't justify attempting to resize into Comexim. Sure, the wires are wider and the cup covers more of my chest, but it seems to have sufficient immediate projection without cutting in at the center. I'm encouraged enough to try other Elomi styles.

    • I see you also tried Carmen, and are going to go up in the cup. How do you think this compares to the Carmen? It is currently my favourite bra, in 42G. It fits pretty well, but perhaps needs a bit more projection at the wire for me. I'm thinking of trying it in 42GG as well. Do you think Matilda might work for me too? It is pretty. I tried the pink in store, but they only had 42HH, which was far too big. Any advice is appreciated.

    • Thanks for your comment. I really liked the Carmen! The fabric was nice and the color was really pretty (red poppy). Unfortunately the cup was too small on the side. I read at herroom that you should go up one cup size (i read this after I ordered the vra). The fabric of the carmen seemed alot sturdier then the fabric on the Matilda. Although the Matilda's fabric was non-stretch whiich helped it to be sturdier. I only tried on the carmen but I liked it. Yes, i think you should try the Matilda.

    • Carmen in red poppy is such a lovely colour, isn't it! I've read a few reviews where people didn't like the fabric, saying it was too stiff, scratchy and felt cheap. Personally, I quite liked it. My boobs are quite soft so I need firm, non-stretch fabric at the bottom to keep them contained and locked down. I have really short roots, so the stretch at the top, especially the elastic, suits me fine. Have you seen the new style coming in either December or Jan, the Maya? It looks to be based on Carmen, or possibly Betty/ Anushka. It's white with a pink and green flower print, and pink lace at the top. I think the print is called sweet pea. It is sooo pretty. I can't wait till that one comes out.
      Thanks for the advice. I think I will get Matilda, in either black or pink. I hope the Carmen fits you in the next size up if you decide to reorder it. Best of luck.

      I just googled the Maya bra and its so pretty! It reminds me of the Valentina that is the only bra I still use that is pre-Bratabase meaning I really like it. I hope you like the Matilda if you get it! Good luck back at you!

    38F

    Fits

    This is the best fitting bra I own, but is still not ideal. Having owned it a few weeks now and worn it regularly, I have realized that the width is slightly too wide for my root and the wires are too flexible and distort slightly with wear which causes digging into my sternum and spillover at the top of the cups that was not present when I purchased it. This might not be an issue for most, but I am also close-set and center full with a narrow root, so the gore needs to be low, narrow, and stay flat enough to support without digging. Sister sizing down seemed to make the spillover worse, so I am still looking for the ideal cut for my shape.

      I would try Elomi Tia Bandless Bra (4280). The wires are narrower and a bit shorter. So even though it's not a plunge it has stretch lace so you might be able to size down.

    • But elomis tend to be wider than some other brands, i think

      This one is not.

    32GG

    Fits beautifully and is quite sexy and flattering, however it does separate my breasts in a way that distributes weight well, but doesn't sit as high/forward as I like.

    Hasn't set fit

    So far I like this bra a lot. The gore tacks perfectly. It's light-weight, sheer (sexy) and comfortable. I love the thin strip of elastic that runs along the top of the cups as that is the one place bras usually are a touch loose on me and the elastic gently helps the top lay flat without pressing into my breasts. I love Elomi - I've tried 4 different styles of their bras and love every single one.

    42GG

    Didn't fit

    I wanted to love this bra, And, some of it I do. Just not enough, so will be selling it.

    The top of the cup fits very well. The center gore is a bit narrower than other Elomis and not only sits flat, but does not impinge on any tissue! The shape is forward, but rounded on the front, and the sides are contained. This bra sits in the right place for me in these important aspects. The J strap works for me! Until now, only the Rita had straps long enough for me to use this. While I do not have a millimeter left over, I ... can connect the J-hook on this.

    The material is scratchy. I do not notice in the cups so much, but the underwire area is awful. Part of this, I think, is exaggerated because it sits below in inframmary fold. I keep adjusting the bottom of the bra upward. Part of it is because the band is just too big. I bought it when I had gained a few pounds and needed a larger band. No sooner than I ordered it than I started to lose a few pounds. I think this might be on the large size regardless, however.

    The cups are much too wide. The top and bottom of the cup is filled, but there is gaping material on the sides. Definitely made for someone with shallower breasts.

    The cup shape is a bit different from other Elomis have been. It is very rounded on the bottom of the cup - and likely why it does not work for my projected breasts. My nipples are usually placed at the confluence of seams in Elomi, but not in this one - they are down at least an inch. I am not certain, however, if this is because the cups are simply too wide/too large, however.
