This one may be a keeper for me! I’m actually surprised at how well this one fits me compared to my experience with Elomi Morgan in the past.
The wires! They actually almost stay completely in my IMF. They barely slip down a finger-width after stretching, jumping, and galavanting around the house (it’s like a side-of-your-finger’s-worth, not the width of your finger flat).
The material is soooo comfortable, and I love the color! It seems projected enough, but I’m not quite sure. The band is also comfortable, but I don’t know if it’s too loose on me? I have a fit check posted if you’d like to help ...me out with those two issues: http://bra.pe/Tbn/
My only gripes were that the elastic caused me quad-boob. If I decide to keep this, I’m planning on removing the elastic like I did my Elomi Kim because it definitely helped the fit. I’m also disappointed that the gore doesn’t quite tack, but I think the gore is too high and/or too wide to completely tack on me.
Otherwise, I honestly love this bra and I really might keep it. I’m on the fence because of the issues that I have listed in my fit check.
Oh, Morgan. I’ve tried you in I think 4? 5? sizes now. Honestly, I was actually surprised by the fit of the 36J and the 36HH Morgan. The wires were less “pudding”-like (as another user called them in one of my other reviews of Morgan), which was a plus. I believe that the 34 band was a definite too small when I tried Morgan before. The problem is, it almost seems like the 36 is too big! Not as much of an issue with this one, the 36J, because it doesn’t fit for many other reasons.
The wires are too wide, which caused that weird wrinkling on the ...sides again. It had great projection and the gore tacked. The lace was flat but had plenty of space as well. It didn’t wrinkle, but it just had a lot of space. I’m not very fond of the Toasted Almond color, but that’s just preference. (I really tend to elan towards black bras, IDK why.) The material is A+ just like the majority of other Elomi bras.
While this one was not a good fit, see my review on the 36HH - Elomi » Morgan Banded Bra (4110) because I think it was a better fit for me. I’m also planning on trying Morgan in a 36H, but I have a feeling that will be too small. Read more 119 more words
I had bought a Panache Envy, but it was jabbing me badly in the armpits, so I tried out this Elomi Morgan instead. Sooo much more comfortable. First, the wire is shorter, so even when swooped and scooped it doesn't poke up into the tender zone. I measured the wire length at 13.8 inches, while the Envy is 15.5 inches, so, there's your problem! The cup width is 7.3, same as the Envy, so still wide enough to cover my root. Also, the (somewhat stretchy) band and the bottom of the cup on the Morgan is made of a very smooth non-stretch fabric, with stretch lace along the ...top. For those full-on-top ladies, be aware that there is an elastic band running on the top edge of the lace. There is a soft, felt-like material lining the inside of the band, wire, and straps, which feels nice. The strap is pretty average in width, but wider than the Envy's, which I also find more comfortable. I am very projected, and the Morgan seems to handle that with aplomb with a 14 inch deep cup.
As far as looks go, it does have the pretty stretch lace on the top of the cups that dresses it up, but overall I think this one is more serviceable than sexy. Fine by me! This colorway is just called "white," but the solid fabric on the cups is speckled with light blue.
The one thing I'm not crazy about is the side support. I feel like my heavy breasts tend to sag towards the outer bottom of the cup, and it pulls on the side of the band, causing some wrinkling. I'm pretty sure this is the right size, so there may be a shape issue. I notice if I pull the straps inward (as if they had a racerback) this improves the side lift a bit. I'm quite new to the bra-that-fits world, so I'm not sure of the cause or the fix beyond that. Still, I'm very happy overall!
Update: I tried the strap on the tightest hook, and it helped smooth out the edges of the cups by the wings and improved the shape a wee bit. I still feel it's a little slacker on the side support than I'd hoped for. Now, though, I'm wondering if I could have managed a 34 band!
Update 2: As I wore this bra more, the more I could see problems with the fit. The cups are just a little too small and the gore tacks only with effort and doesn't stay. I have since tried a 34JJ, and the fit is better. Read more 329 more words
The Elomi Morgan is a 4 piece cup construction with a side support panel and the upper cup is made out of stretchy lace. The bra has a full band and a regular height gore. I really like the fabric used on the bottom cup, it's very nice and soft. The shoulder straps are fully adjustable and a nice width. The band is stretchy but still supportive. The wires are softer more flexible than on the 32J - Elomi » Matilda Plunge Bra (8900) or the 32J - Elomi » Sachi Plunge Bra (4350). Basically the wires are like Elomi wires used to be ...in the past on most of their bras.
The wires felt not very sturdy, they distort easily when there is tension from the band. I found that the wires were quite weak and more flexible than the wires on Sachi or Matilda. I also felt that the side of the cup was lacking support. I found the wires to be much too wide for me and not tall enough. The other problem was the stretchy ribbon that is at the edge of the upper lace panel... it just cuts in. If your boobs are just a little soft, it will cut in. I also think it would if I tried a bigger size. It's not a bra for full on top boobs. Also the bra felt overall much less supportive than Sachi or Matilda. Read more 134 more words
I previously owned the Elomi Morgan in a 32H, then re-ordered it in a 32J after gaining weight. I liked this bra when I had it before, as I found it to be very supportive. The lace upper has a very firm elastic band at the edge of the cup, so it does dig in slightly. The gore and wires don't quite tack, and actually sit on my breast tissue a bit. I'm hoping this will fit better in a couple days when I'm not swollen. Edit to add: still not completely tacking, but not sitting on breast tissue now that breasts are not swollen.
This is a very comfortable bra. The wires are soft and wide, which provides less shaping than other cuts and brands, leaving a bit of a pointy wide-set shape. It has some stretch to the lace at the top of the cup, but for my very full-on-top breasts it does still cut in slightly, especially as the day wears on. It has good, but not significant, immediate projection (part of why it starts creating quad-boob, as the cups slide a little to accommodate my projection). Overall, this is a comfy, everyday bra great for all over fullness and moderate to wider roots.
This bra is so comfortable. The fabric is satiny and the bands and straps are lined with a felt-like material. It doesn't dig or poke anywhere. However, I have a problem with just about all the bras I have tried with them slipping down out of the IMF, and this one is no exception. The band is pretty stretchy. In fact, I started with a 36 inch band Morgan, but I have to wear it on the tightest hooks right out of the gate. This one I wear with an extender. The cups of the 34JJ fit much better and the gore tacks comfortably.
It makes a nice shape, not as east-west as some other Elomis, and pretty round. The stretch lace on top of the cup has a rim of elastic, which sits fine across the top of my breasts, but might cut in for someone fuller on top. I would like a little more uplift, especially on the sides - perhaps if it were a perfect fit. The seams show only slightly through t-shirts.
I ordered this bra online, and unfortunately got the wrong cup size, so the cups are too small. Other than that, it's a great bra! The underwires don't poke me in the armpits, which is a problem I run into frequently. I bought the red color, which is super cute! The lace on top is stretchy, so even though the cups are too small, I don't have "quad-boob." I've already ordered what I hope is the right cup size, so we'll see how it fits when it arrives!
I have now tried this bra in 36J, 34JJ - Elomi » Morgan Banded Bra (4110) , and 36HH - Elomi » Morgan Banded Bra (4110) . I normally wear a 36HH or 36J, but the band seems to stretch quickly. The 34JJ is probably the best fit, even though it fits like a very snug 36—the 36 bands fit more like snug 38s and ride up slightly even on the tightest band. The 36HH is a little too small in the cups, but the 36J is too big in the cups, while the 34JJ is pretty close to perfect. All of them do sit pretty close to my IMF, are about perfect in terms of width, and almost (but not quite) accommodate my massive immediate projection needs. The gore on the 36J and 36HH are too wide, while the 34JJ is about perfect. The 36 band bras just don't ever quite fit right, if you know what I mean—the 34JJ isn't quite perfect, but it *feels* just about right.
