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.
Time will tell I guess!

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.

This is one of the best fits I've found, so naturally all the patterns are completely unappealing to me. Even the white and nude have weird camo patterns! Why??? The quality seems okay, and it's fairly comfortable, but gosh it's not at all sexy IMO.
Anyway, it's not perfect, but it's pretty close for me. The 36HH is an okay fit, but the cups seem slightly small. I'm planning to try it in 36J and 34JJ to see if that eliminates some of my problems with it. The gore is pretty high and the wing is pretty low. The gore is slightly too wide, probably just because it's so ... high, and it ends up just mostly tacking. I bought this lightly used and the band is already really loose, so I think I'm going to see if the 34 works.
All in all, it's fine. On paper, it should be perfect for me. In reality, I find it kind of ugly in every pattern, and it doesn't quite fit as well as I'd hoped. Again, though, it's still one of the best fits I've gotten. It's just not as great as I hoped, possibly due to the sizing.
