I have done it. I have found the holy grail of bras. I think I have found my perfect bra.
So, I have found that it is my shape, rather than my size, that makes it so difficult to find a bra that actually works for me. I am functionally full-on-bottom with narrow, very short roots, and a huge amount of projection. My boobs essentially go straight out from my body on both top and bottom. Finding bras with enough depth but not too much height is a struggle; throwing a need for narrow wires in just makes it worse.
This bra has it ALL. It says it was designed ...for petite women, which I am not, but with my breast shape and the fact that they are so high-set on my chest I ordered it anyway, hoping it'd work. And oh does it work.
The band is fantastically snug - incredibly so for Elomi bras. They tend to run rather loose, to where when (well, if, since I have Etta now) I replace my Caitlyn I plan on getting a 34 band (I also tried on Lexi in a 34GG for kicks and giggles at Nordstrom Rank and despite being way too small in the cup the band was great). This is not loose at all and is much more true to size; I measured the band at 36.5" while stretched. Awesome.
It also has gloriously narrow wires. My other Elomis, much as I love them, have wires that are 7" or more. My EM experiments have led me to find that wires in the 6.3-6.5" width work best for me. This bra falls right in that range. Yes!
The cup has just enough height where I don't have gaping even where the cup meets the strap - something I've been resigned to expect from any unlined bra I try. The wings and gore are both very low for Elomi and, well, most bras in this size. The underwire channels are lined in a nice soft fleece, which makes them extremely comfortable against my chest, and the straps are also slightly fleecy.
I love the bright cheery pink color, and the sunflower embroidery is adorable. It'll probably show through on a thin shirt, but who cares? Not me. It's pretty! I also like the matching bows on the gore and straps, and how the gore isn't full fabric all the way up but rather a keyhole. Very nice.
The only real quibbles I have are the width of the gore - it's a bit too wide for my breasts, which are happier in narrow gores, but it's not a dealbreaker by any means. The fabric is a bit stiff - it reminds me of the material that Caitlyn is made of, but stiffer and less satiny. Still, I'm sure it'll soften up once I wash it; I can't remember if my Caitlyn was stiffer at first or not.
This bra basically takes all of the usual stuff about Elomi - wide wires, loose bands, tall sides, etc. - and throws it out the window. And it's fantastic. I'm absolutely going to be recommending it to everyone in this bra's size range that needs narrower wires but doesn't necessarily want the hassle of trying Polish bras. Read more 434 more words
My boobs: very short narrow root, full on top, center full
The fit: Fits like a 38JJ or true to size 40J. The fit is very similar to my 38JJ - Elomi » Lottie Plunge Bra (4180) except lower cut and more open on top (excepting the straps). When I tried my 40JJ - Elomi » Jodi Plunge Bra (4190) over the top of this bra, there was room at the bottom, apex, and top of the bra, which suggests that this bra is a size smaller everywhere in comparison to other Elomi plunges, at least in this size. Additionally, when I ...tried my Lottie over the top of this bra, it fit the same everywhere except the Lottie was a bit taller and more closed on top, and had more room at the center. This is due to the seam placement, which is more east-west on this bra, with less room in the center. To make up for that, the gore is low and fairly narrow at the base. I have no problem after wearing this bra with the wires resting on tissue at the gore, a problem with most Elomi bras. The gore is the same height as my Elomi Jodi and does not tack, probably because of the lack of room at the apex. The side wires are very tall and would gouge me if I didn't replace them, which I always do. The band is firm and very comfortable. It doesn't move around at all. The straps don't cut in to the top of my breasts. Although it is supposed to be the same cut as Elomi Matilda Plunge Bra (8900), it is much shorter and smaller than the one I tried in this size. The fit is pretty good, considering the depth at the wire, as I don't have any sliding out of my IMF, although I do have some wrinkling at the base of the cup. The strap placement is much more centered than other bras I own and is the biggest selling point of this bra for me, followed by the great strappy details.
The look: Lifted, rounded, although I could have done with more room at the bottom of the bra. Would have been a better fit if it had fit true to size, but I'm sort of in between sizes right now. I get a very slight upside down 7 shape, so if I gain any weight it will be ugly. Without clothes on it looks great though, and the straps rest perfectly on my breasts in just the right place. Under my work clothes there is no hint of strappiness, and the arm holes are cut nice and deep so I can wear it under a black dress that usually shows bra on the side. Under low cut party dresses and shirts, the strappiness is just right for me. I'm fine with a bit of sex appeal when I'm out with my husband. Besides the straps there are no embellishments like bows and the shoulder straps are attached to a ring in the front which does not dig in.
The feel: Not as soft as Elomi's satin bras, but also not as itchy as some of their more plastic bras. Not as itchy as the Matilda plunge or really any CK bras. The inner side support panel is lined in a flannel type fabric which is very soft. The straps are similar to Elomi Bijou Banded Moulded Bra (8720) straps: slightly more stretchy and smooth, but won't get frayed over time. The strappy straps are made of a cleverly sewed stretch elastic which are just right for my full on top short breasts. The straps move with my movement, which I like. No cutting in and I feel like they wouldn't cut in even on very full on top tall roots because of their elasticity. The mesh on the band under the gore sometimes folds over and is itchy, but no more than three or so times per day so far. The best part is, because of the strappy straps and their connection to the top of the cups, the straps are pulled forward out of my armpits into a very comfortable wearing position. I have no issues with the straps falling down whatsoever in this bra, making the comfort very great indeed.
A great strappy bra for a plus band and cup woman, and a good buy if you need centered straps and a firm band as well.
Edit: 12/30/18- after wearing this bra for a long time and comparing the fit to another Sachi and a Soraya both in 40JJ, I’m pretty sure this is a mislabeled 40J. As I bought it from an outlet, that makes sense. But you should also know that in a real 40JJ the cups fit tts and the band is still really firm. Read more 741 more words
I should start by saying that I am currently wearing this and have been all day and all I had to do was change out wires for my usual ones. That’s how comfortable it is, and what an amazing fit it is.
Fits almost perfectly- I could use a tiny bit more room in the bottom center and the sides are slightly too tall but otherwise the fit is perfect for me. The strappy parts give great upper support without a higher gore, which I generally find uncomfortable. This bra is even more comfortable because the fabric is super soft, buttery, and smooth, and the ...band is consistently firm as it is double layered.
The fabric is also just gorgeous- its’s a digital print, I can’t tell if it’s pink and red roses or chrysanthemums, all over a black background. It’s very me, sort of moody and romantic, which is how I like to dress.
Oh, also, the shape is phenomenal- nice and round, which Elomi used to not be able to do. It’s what I want in a bra shape.
I love this bra and I love how Elomi has been making more fabulous inclusive lingerie. This season has just been fantastic- full of beautiful bras with beautiful fits. I hope they keep it up. Read more 116 more words
If you are a plus full busted woman then you already are aware of Ewa Michalak’s SM line, and particularly her beige or pink with black seamed bras with detachable or straps, such as Ewa Michalak Sm Ja Weim. You might lament their limited size range, narrow wires, or scaling in larger sizes. If you want a strappy Ewa bra but they just won’t work for these reasons, have I got good news for you! And the fit issues I had with this bra are similar to some of the fit issues with Ewa’s SM bras, so you might not be disappointed there either *wink*.
The ...Tori has everything I love about lingerie- beautiful details, Art Deco/Arts & Crafts style embroidery mixed with a modern structure and Marlies Dekkers’ strappy luxury, and the comfort and fit Elomi is good at. Thus, Tori is vintage and modern, sexy and comfy, and while the strappy trend is dated now, the embroidery and comfort make it pretty special.
Its construction is pretty similar to other Elomi plunges. Elomi has been playing with the shape, if not the actual dimensions of their plunges, and I feel like this bra might be what they are going with. Like Elomi Sachi Plunge Bra (4350), Tori is a bit shallower on bottom to provide uplift. This also means I get wrinkles, but no gapping, on the bottom. The apex is a little more widely spaced so, like most bras, I get some wrinkling on the inside too. This particular bra seems slightly shallower/wider spaced than my Sachi on the inside, so without a few modifications the gore does not tack. I think this is to prevent spillover into the center, but since I have very firm center tissue and short roots, that will never be a problem for me.
The band is true to size, firm, built slightly more for a V shaped body than I would like, but still very comfortable. It is double-lined mesh in back, and the black binding everywhere is soft and velvety. The cups are double-lined non stretch mesh. The top of the cup has a slightly stretchy tape to keep everything in place.
The straps are like the Sachi- firm stretch elastic with no embellishment. The straps each have little loops to attach the center rose motif. The motif attaches to the gore via loops which are connected to two center buttons.
Wires are soft and wide and tall at the sides- too soft and wide and tall for me. I need about that width at the bottom of the cup because of my flat roots, but a more vertical, shorter wire on the side. The gore is the usual width, but too wide for me. Once I narrowed the gore at the top and replaced the wires with my usual #60 vertical flat wires from porcelynne, my tissue sank easily into the cup. It’s nice because I needed all the space I could get at the center and narrowing the gore gives me that much more room there.
I have had to do this mod to basically all my bras so it’s nothing new. I will have to adjust the buttons and loops at the gore but as it stands Tori will be worn a lot- if it’s anything like Sachi it will get worn quite a bit.
On a woman with taller roots in my size this would be a plunge with a pretty standard plunge shape. On me it fits as a mid coverage bra, but that’s due to shape and size. I’m excited to own a bra like this. I like plunges because the shape is good for my shape, and the beige is a good nude for my skin tone. I feel very sexy but also classy, and I really appreciate the comfort and support. I like that I can wear the bra to work with work appropriate necklines, then attach the motif on my way to dinner out with my husband to make my lbd a wow dress. It’s one of the more expensive non-luxury bras out there, but I think it’s well-worth the price. And considering how well my Sachi has held up, this band will not stretch out, fabric won’t fray, and the bra will last and last, as long as appropriate care is taken.
TLDR: if you always wanted a strappy bra, but were sized or shaped out, now is your chance. Band and cup are tts, support is excellent, quality and longevity are superb, aesthetic are on point.
ETA - a few months later, I've gained a bit of weight and have to admit that this bra just doesn't have enough projection for me. I can wear it just fine, but I constantly feel like I'm about to fall out the bottom and it's just a bad sensation. Still a lot to love about this bra for someone that it suits better.
TLDR - It's narrow! It's projected! It has short, soft(er than Panache) wires! It comes in a 32 band! It's FREAKING BANDLESS! If you like Panache Envy but want shorter wires and can tolerate a wider gore, BUY THIS.
I'm kind of in love with ...this bra. It has a lot of the things I love about Panache Envy Balconnet Bra (7285) , while not being Panache Envy (variety is the spice of life, also, jfc, the WIRESSSSS). Did I mention it's bandless?
First awesome Envy-like feature: the left to right seam that is almost completely horizontal. In bras that have a more diagonal seam along with a mesh or lace upper portion of the cup, I find I get pillowing/in cup quadding where the mesh/lace and other material meet. I'm not sure how the seams are causing this or why a horizontal seam works better, but it definitely does.
Second awesome Envy-like feature: stretch lace upper portion of the cup is not lined with any sort of ribbon or elastic or other material. While this often helps create a nice rounded shape, it acts like a rubber band on my soft tissue and creates another type of in cup quadding.
(I am not 100% sure that a horizontal seam in and of itself has that much effect on fit for me, but every bra I have tried with a horizontal seam and no elastic at the top of the cup has also had very firm fitting stretch lace/mesh, which seems to have something to do with pulling my tissue away from the seam and avoiding the pillow/bubble/in cup quad there. In something like Cleo Hettie Balconnet Bra (9011) that has a horizontal-ish seam, firm mesh but also elastic, I get LESS pillowing at the seam but it's still there. Shoutout to cupandahalf for talking some of this out with me on another review. Anyway, where was I?)
Here's where this bra beats Envy: THE WIRESSSSSSSSSSSS. They're shorter so no poking, and soft so the not exactly tacking center gore isn't painful. There's a good half to 3/4ths of an inch gap at the end of the wire channel, which allows for the wings to be taller and hold in my side squish.
The gore is a little wide for my average set but center full breasts - it's just barely short of an inch wide at the top. However, the gentle wires and accommodating stretch lace mean I can kind of just scoot things around and be comfortable and contained.
I have no issues with the quality of the bra. The print is kinda whatever for me - I suppose it's romantic in a noir sense? It could look pretty sexy with the right pair of panties, I guess. The embroidery kind of has an odd feel on the outside. It feels just like a very old, very nice embroidered arm chair at my grandmother's house. I'm pretty sensitive to textures and how things feel and it's exactly like that. You can't feel it at all on the inside of the cups, thankfully, just touching the outside.
I would be happy if the cups were 14" deep. At 13.5", they feel just deep enough. I did a bit of yoga in this bra and didn't feel like I fell out too much, but I haven't done anything really physical yet.
This isn't a full coverage bra, but it's not going to give you a ton of cleavage either. I haven't seen Elomi calling it a balconette, full coverage or anything, just a "bandless" bra. I felt comfortable wearing it under a v-neck t-shirt from Target, but if you're TRYING to get cleavage, look elsewhere.
Lastly, I hope this review was helpful. If there's anything I could do better or information you'd like to see. I know my reviews tend to be a bit long, but I like to cover everything that seems relevant about a bra. Read more 619 more words
After I realized my most comfortable, best fitting 38JJ - Elomi » Lottie Plunge Bra (4180) cut in to the top of my breasts on larger days and sometimes I needed an extender when I was bloated even after 6 months of wear (that band has not worn out at all!) I decided I needed the next size up. Of course that and the Maya were sold out so I got the latest in the same shape, the Jodi, in 40JJ.
Besides the wide wires and some poking in the armpit, the fit is perfect. No cutting in/quadding. As I will replace the ...wires with smaller ones to match my omega shape needs I'm not concerned about the wire fit. The fit is essentially full coverage on me because of my short short roots and in this case I like it. I feel quite contained. The band is firm and feels great. The mesh is really sturdy. I love the shape I get as well. Projected and rounded.
The fabric is really special: soft, silky, but firm and an unusual print they call Velvet but which looks more like microbes under a microscope to me. It is cobalt and turquoise on a black background. Black lace that mirrors the pattern tops it off. It is more delicate than the Lottie lace but still supportive. The gore decoration is a beautiful jewel. All in all, the feel, fit, and look is superb.
Edit: I changed out the wires to some 30HH Panache wires a few weeks ago. I wore this bra for 12 hours today and forgot to take it off. I actually forgot I was wearing a bra!!!! First time for me after 150 bras. Read more 199 more words
Elomi Eugenie bra is based on the Sachi / Soraya cut and it fits similarly to them. I usually would size up in this cut compared to Matilda (non stretch plunge which runs a bit big) and Mariella (stretchy lace cup) but with the size range ending at JJ I can't here. Matilda and Mariella are currently a bit too big on me in 32JJ which means Eugenie currently is spot on. The bra is very pretty black mesh cups covered in silver lace on the front. There are 2 extra straps at the gore for a really fancy look. It's one of the most extra styles from ...Elomi and I'm happy a style like this is available in a larger size range.
How it fits : currently I find it a decent fit on me, it feels firm and supportive! The cups are a bit shallow at the center and therefore I recommend sizing up if you can- on me the extra straps (which are stretchy btw) just cut in a little. I also have center full boobs. The cup height and width is just alright for me, the wires on this bra are firm wires which hold their shape, so it's the new Elomi wire!
Now one word about the fabric. I wore the bra like 3-4 times since I got it. I'm actually wearing it today. So at first the fabric didn't bother me. But today the front part where the lace is on top of the mesh it feels a bit itchy. If it felt like that when I tried it on the first time I probably wouldn't kept it. So be aware of that, it's not the softest fabric. If you dislike the front lace, try Sachi, it's the same style and cut without any extra lace. Also the lace is very delicate and it's recommended that you only handwash this bra carefully, just be aware of that. It's a high maintainance bra but it's also an extraordinary one and really pretty. Read more 227 more words
This bra is amazing! I love it so much! It really gives me a much needed confidence boost. It's like the most beautiful bra I own. I just find this color combination so pretty and classy.
About the fit: Yes I'd say that it fits. It's not prefect but I expected much worse. I think 32J is the best size for me in this bra. The only fit issue I have is that the bra is a bit shallow at the center and that the top section of the cups is not very open. This is a problem because I have soft full on top boobs. So when I put ...the bra on there is no quadboob but once I've worn the bra for a while there is just some slight quadding, because some soft tissue just wants to escape the cups. On the other side, I used to have issues with plunge bras in the past. My boobs just "fell out" of them because the gore was too low. With this bra that is not the case, despite the low gore everything stays mostly in place.
The band fits me quite well at 31 inch underbust and I say that the band is quite firm. The wires are super sturdy (like Panache wires, yay!) and the whole construction feels very supportive. The lace part at the gore can be removed, which is quite good so I can use the bra also as a regular plunge bra too without showing off too much under low cut tops. The only negative thing I have to say... I found the fabric a bit itchy. I hope it will soften with a few washes. Read more 171 more words
Mariella is based on the popular Morgan cut, by elomi which is a full cup cut with stretch lace on top. I got the Mariella in the hidden tiger print from AW20 and it was more firmer wires than earlier versions. This bra fits me better than older versions of this bra I tried before. The bra feels very supportive and comfortable. The stretch lace is soft and adjusts to your shape. There is an elastic at the edge, it doesn't cut in too badly on me, but I see it could be a problem. I also think it could be removed easily. The bra is made of high quality ...woven fabric which feels very soft and silky. The fit is true to size, I get best fit with a 32 band and the JJ cup size. I tried J -cup before but it would cut in. It's a good bra if you are full on top, have a tall and slightly wide root like me. There is some projection to the cups but it's more bottom and side --- so it could be tricky for center-full or very projected boobs. I just get a away with it as the upper cup allows for extra room. This is my favorite bra for PMS as then it fits me best when other bras feel too small. The shape is then very round. On normal days I get a bit dropy shape as I don't fill out the top as much. Overall I highly recommend this bra. THe quality and support is outstanding and it's worth the money esp. in the size range on of the best options. Read more 165 more words
This was an impulse purchase off eBay. It’s a used bra; my first used bra I’ve ever purchased.
This bra is a parachute bra x1000. The wires are so wide, the widest I’ve ever experienced, and they wrap all the way around to my back. No joke!
The cups “fit” but they’re obviously too large. They’re very tall and deep (!!!). Deep is what I need, but because the cups are obviously too large, there’s still wrinkling from the excess I stretched fabric. My boobs literally swim in this bra.
With all complaints aside, I’m honestly keeping this bra because it’s actually pretty dang comfortable and would be a ...fabulous bra to wear on my days off when I still want support but can’t handle an uncomfortable bra all day.
The fabric is soft! And for being a nude bra (I hate nude bras), it’s actually not that bad looking. A little “grandma” but it’s not that bad. I actually wish I could come across a Nina in black, maybe in a 36GG because it might fit and that colorway is much cuter.
This has the old Elomi wires, so they’re super flimsy, which is probably why they wrap around to my back. Also, I think the previous owner may have tried to alter the wires a bit because they’re a little warped looking, like they tried to make them narrower but it didn’t work. The band is pretty firm for a 36, but not uncomfortable.
Overall, like I said, I’m keeping this. With all the fit issues aside, it’s got that Elomi quality that is hard to pass up. Plus this bra seems a little hard to come by! Read more 171 more words
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. Read more 197 more words
This bra is currently too small for me in the cups, I get quadboob and the gore pokes my overspilling breast tissue. It's not comfortable to wear. The bra is very well made and supportive. Check out my older review of the 32J - Elomi » Matilda Plunge Bra (8900) and my newer review of the 32JJ - Elomi » Matilda Plunge Bra (8900) (which is the size that currently fits me) to get more info on the bra.
I took apart my previous 40JJ - Elomi » Kim Plunge Bra (4340) and wanted a second one, so here we are. The bra fits better now that I have gained weight and solidly fit this size but the bottoms of the cups are still a little too shallow at the wire, and the gore is still too wide. However, the lack of pointiness now that I fill the cups better is nice. After narrowing the gore and changing the wires, my two standard changes, it should be fine, if not my best fit.
It’s funny to compare this “plunge” with my 40J - Curvy Kate » Dragonfly Plunge Bra (SG5411). This fits very much like a full cup bra on me because of my short roots and the majority of the depth is at the center. With the dragonfly I’ve got a real plunge shape and the majority of the depth is at the bottom and sides. Now if I could get a combination of the two!
I love red so I bought this bra based on how gorgeous the red is. I was pleasantly surprised when I received it and it was a dark wine color! Most photos online are much less saturated in color. The top of the cup on my larger side slightly cuts in but not enough to matter. I like the shape I get in this bra and the gore tacks nicely. Overall pleased and am liking the Elomi brand!
Also tried it with a harness bra from www.harnessheaven.com (for those who like this look) and I could appreciate this under a plunging neckline of a dress!
Love this bra! The fit feels really great. (Big shoutout to Stephanie with Breakout Bras, who recommended this bra and size to me based on emails alone! It's obvious she knows what she's doing, and I will definitely be buying from them in the future!)
The fit is really nice on me, and super comfortable. There's plenty of projection at the wire, the gore has a strong tack, the band is snug without being restrictive, and I'm not fighting to keep the straps on my shoulders. The only fit issue is that the wires are a good bit wider than they ought to be (1.5-2"!). However, I don't think ...this causes significant fit issues because of the fantastic amount of center projection and the fact that the underwires don't run high under my under arms. The wires also feel somewhat flexible and aren't pokey at all.
Important note about this "plunge style" is that it's rather different than other plunges (which is great for me, since my center-full breasts don't like to stay put in most plunges). I'll just paste in Stephanie's description here, because I think it's spot on: "This is a plunge shape but not a traditional plunge bra style. Like Tiana, it gives a very forward and boosted side and underbust fit. This cup shape is great for softer and heavier tissue because it keeps the breast tissue from settling in the bottom and putting extra pressure on the wires. This wire shape also tucks closer to the root for ladies who have narrower/higher attached tissue. The center cup depth is very accommodating, and the stretch lace upper cups will hug well to softer tissue while the banded edging keeps the tissue in place instead of letting it slip out as you move."
The material is very smooth and satiny. I love the stretch lace on on top, which helps provide a smooth line over the tops of my breasts while still preventing my center-full breast tissue from spilling over the somewhat lower gore. I'm rather FOB, but I think this bra could work for people who are also more even or even somewhat FOT, because of it's stretchiness.
As far as attractiveness, it's not my favorite, especially in the nude color. Something about the particular style of the lace edging and the print used feels matronly on me. I do really love the look of the red floral pattern, so I might get that colorway instead, although I really do need to have a well-fitting nude bra... It's definitely not a "sexy" plunge, like others, but it's also far from the worst I've seen. Read more 327 more words
The 36H appears to be the magic size for me in this bra! The gore tacks. The wires are still slightly too wide, but seem narrower than usual for Elomi. ...The cups have a slight compression, but don’t cause me to quad. There may be slight wrinkling at the bottom, but it’s really not that bad. The band is snug, not too tight or too loose. The straps are an adequate length, instead of being slightly too long in the 36HH.
What’s odd is that this bra in 34HH vs 36H didn’t fit quite as well. Part of me thinks it’s because the 34HH is too snug in the band which caused some shallowness in the cups. Either way, this size is my magic size in this bra, I guess. Hooray for another sports bra win! I now have 2 sports bras in my collection, which is probably enough for now (I’m not super active at the gym right now so I don’t want to go crazy buying a bunch of sports bras…although I’m liking the two that I have and wouldn’t mind a couple more to rotate…but my bank account says no.) Read more 163 more words
I had a 34HH Tia back when I was a smaller size, and while it still wasn’t a perfect fit, it was nowhere near as awful as this!
For some reason this bra has wrinkles and emptiness on the sides (I’m guessing the wires being too wide is the culprit). But then it smashed my boobs so close together there was no way the gore was ever going to even touch my sternum. It was literally that bad. The fabric also literally has no give except for the lace on top, which was the only part that fit fine.
So R.I.P. to my dreams of ever wearing a Tia again. Unfortunately, it is not a match for me anymore. 0/10 would not recommend for my body.
Morgan…I’ve tired so many variations and I swore the last time was the last time but here we are.
Actually, I think the 34JJ is actually the best fit I’ve ever had in the Morgan. I was surprised that the bottoms barely wrinkled and had enough projection at the wire. The cups are a little tall, but honestly I’m okay with it; I know typically the bras I wear are lower coverage, but I actually like this one being more full coverage because I felt more secure. The coverage actually reminds me more of like a sports bra. The band was a good fit as well. The only main ...issue I noticed was the gore, it floats maybe a centimeter or less, but it’s probably because it’s too wide and tall for me. The wires are long and tall and dug in a little on my side. Also, the cups themselves are wide so there’s empty fabric, but I could look past that if it was comfortable.
I’m actually considering keeping this one, but I’m still on the fence. I may return it to Amazon and buy it later when funds allow, but I think I’m going to sit on it a little while longer to decide if it’s an okay fit or not.
EDIT #1: After trying the bra on again, I realized that the wires don’t poke on the sides, but they literally wrap around to my back. The wires are also so wide that I can fit 2 fingers between them and my IMF. So leaning more towards not keeping this one at this point, which stinks but if it’s not a good fit it’s not a good fit, right? Read more 173 more words
I also tried this bra in 32JJ and 34J, neither did work for me. The band on this 34J was too big and it would not feel supportive enough. The cups are quite wide as it's usual for Elomi bras, the top lace part is stretchy. The fit of the cups was okay for me. The biggest issue with this bra were the wires which hurt me very painfully. Even after just trying it on for a short time, the wires started to dig in under my boobs. I am really not sure why that happens, I assume it might be that this bra is too shallow in cups and my boobs pushed the cups down which ended up in it being painful to wear. So sadly this bra is just not for me.
