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
This is such a pretty bra. I don't think it's practical for me with the cross straps since they peek out of my v necks but it's so pretty and I would wear this design as a bathing suit top. Regarding fit, the usual issues of bottom wrinkles, top of cup gaping and wire in the arm pit.
As with the Elomi Morgan, I originally owned the Sachi bra in a 32H, then bought it in a 32J after gaining weight. I find this bra to be very comfortable, and the strappy detailing doesn't show even when I wear a V-neck. The Panache Envy is probably a better fit for me than the Sachi, but the band and the outer end of the wires of the Sachi are more comfortable.
I got the chance to try a few Elomi bras with free shipping and return from a local online shop and this was available in my size. The Sachi is a Plunge bra based on Elomi Soraya. The cups are a 4 part construction with a side support panel and a sheer mesh top section with some fancy strappy details. The gore is about the same height as on the 32J - Elomi » Matilda Plunge Bra (8900) bra. The wires on this bra are really firm and sturdy, comparable to Bravissimo and Panache wires. This is a feature I love, because the usual soft Elomi ...wires don't offer enough support, distort easily and end up on my back. The band is firm and supportive and fits true to size for a 32 band.
How the bra fits me:
Sadly the biggest issue I had with this bra was the quadboob. The Fancy straps at the center just made it worse and cut into my breast tissue. Elomi Plunge bras are already a bit difficult on my soft full on top boobs, because they don't offer much space at the center and top of the cup and tend to cut in. Elomi in general just work better for a full on bottom shape. So these fancy straps that are quite tight but stretchy just make it worse. I thought about sizing up to a 32JJ and see what happens, but then I fear that there could be more wrinkling at the sides.
The wires on this 32J are just okay for me. If it weren't for the other issues I'd say it is tolerable. (note that most wires are too wide for me in my size as I need fairly narrow wires but deep cups) So for Elomi standards these wires are not very wide. Also since they are much more sturdy, they don't distort much. I feel very well supported by there wires alone. Overall I'm really impressed by this bra. The support is amazing and I think it would work best on slightly wide even full - full on bottom boobs.
The bra is overall not really my style so I'm not too sad that it doesn't work for me. The strappy detail is nice but I could do without it. (It did not look flattering on me because of the quadboob.) Maybe I will try a 32JJ in the future, but I want to focus on bras that are more likely to fit me first. Read more 311 more words
I love the look and fit of this bra, it’s sexy and gives and amazingly rounded shape for an unpadded bra. Elomi fits my shape perfectly.. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bra fit so well on the bust.. however when I tightened the shoulder straps the back started to ride up a bit.. maybe I need a bigger back size too? Underneath clothes it looked wonderfully rounded but just doesn’t hoik them up high enough.. no matter how I tightened the straps.. and I can’t wear it under my coat, when I zipped up over it my boobs were totally crushed.. I’ve never had that happen before :/ I think I’ve gotten too used to padded bras.. anyway super comfy and sexy so I think I may purchase this bra in the future but I don’t think I’d wear it out until summer.. either way I’m keen to try more elomi bras now, they feel made for my shape <3
Was thinking about getting a new one of these but I decided on a different more useful bra. Loved my original 40JJ - Elomi » Sachi Plunge Bra I wore it to death though. I might get it again, who knows?
