Finally I found the size that fits me in this bra. I had the 32J before which just wasn't good. The Matilda bra is Elomi's plunge cut with no stretch lace. I used to have issues with the gore being too low on this cut. It would poke me and there would be overspill at the centre. After recent size change I was without bras that fit me so I had to try new ones.
My shape: tall, narrow to average wide roots, full on top, projected, center heavy
In the 32JJ the gore fits much better, it's about 0.5-1cm taller than on 32J. Also since the bra cups ... are bigger, all my breast tissue is gathered in the cups and nothing spills over. So the gore cannot touch my breast tissue. I love this cut - it's so good for center full boobs but only if you can find the right size. Tall gores often bother me too but I prefer them since my boobs fall out of too low cut bras. But with this bra my boobs are fully supported. It's a very nice construction that gives a lot of support just from band and wire.
I find the band a bit stretchy for a 32 and think I would start to wear it on a tighter setting really soon. I tried out the racer back option but it gives me neck pain. Wearing the bra regularly feels very supportive but I have to shorten the straps a lot - I think they are generally bit longer to allow for the raceback option. I also have slight gaping at the band upper side on my back --- which wouldn't be there with racerback. As with all Elomis the wires are on the wider side. Since the bra is so supportive I will overlook it.
