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.
