I first bought a Matilda in 36HH and had the same issue with the band being too stretchy and riding up that I have had with other Elomis. The bra fitter at Nordstrom's recommended I don't try to size up a cup, and I think she was right. In fact, I'm almost wondering if I could size *down* a cup, since this one is still a little droopy shaped. But surely a 34HH would be too small?
I like the look of the Matilda and find it scratchy when I first put it on, but then really comfortable as soon as my body adjusts to the fabric. I ... find Elomis more comfortable than Panaches generally and don't have the problems with the wires going too high, even though the wing height is one of the taller ones I've tried.
The Matilda is a four-part cup with sheer, non-stretchy mesh on each panel. The top panel with the embroidered decoration is a finer mesh and the side support panel appears to be reinforced with a second ply. The mesh on the wings is stretchy. Elomis always have really nice, soft felt covering the wires, band, and straps. Oh, the Matilda also has a built-in J-hook to wear the straps in a racerback configuration.
