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 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 narrow roots and even, projected, soft, saggy breasts which are close-set with lots of centre fullness. One issue I always have with Elomi bras is the "flattening" that happens around the gore and cleavage - there is always some centre tissue being cut into by the bra edge (quadboob). I read that the Morgan has narrower wires than most Elomi bras, so I ordered a cup size up to see if there would be more room to accommodate my centre fullness without wider wires. Unfortunately this bra still cuts in near the gore, and going up in cup size just seems to have made the bra taller, which I don't really need. Most Elomi bras I've tried are too wide for me, and although this style seems to have narrower wires, it still doesn't work for me, the wires feel too high under my arms. It's too bad since I like the colorway and print of this style.
Elomi Morgan is a full cup bras with the same cut as Elomi Cate, but it has a stretchy lace top. I tried this bra in the past in 32J but it was slightly small. Since I went up 1 cup size recently. I decided to give it chance again in 32JJ.
While the bra fits me size-wise and I have no quadboob or overspill - it is not the right construction for my boobs. The wires are too wide and I get wrinkling on the sides. The support is better than on the 34HH - Elomi » Lydia Bandless Bra (EL4390) which I think is because this bra has a full band for support. The bra is made of nice soft materials and feels high quality. I don't think that it's the best cut for by full on top shape with rather narrow roots. The bra seems to be best suited for a more wider full on bottom shape.
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.
My holy grial bra, honestly. Its my most comfy aside from Sculptresse sport. Its a perfect fit for my shape which is pendulous and slightly wide rooted I believe. It gives me the lifted and rounded shape I prefer.
