    40GG

    Didn't fit

    This bra looks good under sweaters and tight t-shirts. I love how it makes my breast sit high without looking fake. It's a comfortable bra in hot weather. It's hard to wash by hand b/c it doesn't fit in the bathroom sink. I wash it on delicate in the washing machine and have had no problems with it stretching.

    • Hi, could you pretty please measure this bra again? The wire width (cup width) seems to be quite large. Too large if you ask me. The only way I can explain the cup width if you confused the Smoothing 1220 with the Smoothing Plunge 1221; but that bra is not available in 40GG. *scratches head*
      I would love to know, I always have issues with the wires (and the cupwidth) being too narrow for me.

    • i measured wrong. i measured from the outside instead of the inside. when measuring from the inside, i got 10 inches.

    • Thanks, but that is still wider than the 22cms (8.7 in) I get on the Elomi Cleo Side Support in the same size. And the Elomi Cleo Side Support has the widest wires that I have found so far. I contacted a friend who owns both the Elomi Cleo Side Support and the Elomi Smoothing 1220 in 44GG and she said the two bras are identical in wire width. *very confused*

    • I think I know what it is, pharmrterri might be measuring the cup diagonally instead of straight across?

    • This is a normal non-plunge bra; I cannot see a reason to measure diagonally. The best explanation I have is that I always try to measure the actual wire through the wire tube (bc it indicates best how much space there will be for the breasts) and pharmrterri does it differently.

    • I measured straight across from the back. I measured my 38 h and it was over 8 inches too.

    • 8 inch is 20.32 cms, 8.7 inches is about 22 cms. Wire width measurements in that range seem about right for an Elomi bra in 38H(UK). Anything above 22 cms though... I would love to find a bra in 40 H with wires that are 24-26 cms wide and 42 cms long, but I doubt this will happen unless I sew the bra myself.

    LOVE this bra, hurts my feelings that Elomi is retiring it.

    Very comfortable and supportive, plus it's seamless so it gives a nice smooth appearance with clothing. Seems like it might run somewhat large in the cups compared to other Elomi bras, because I wear at least one or two cup sizes larger in the Caitlyn and Tamarie than I do in this bra. Probably one of my favorites!

    Didn't fit

    This seems like a very sturdy, very supportive bra for the right lady. It's comfortable and certainly covers all of the boob - there's nothing slipping out anywhere. However, the cups appear to run large. I have another bra in the same size by the same brand that fits great, but this one has serious gapping at the top. Also, the lift and separation is a little extreme for my frame, but would probably be great for someone with a different body shape.

    This bra is not owned any more

    This bra seemed like it fit perfectly the first time, but that was without the scoop-swoop method. It's a really comfortable bra, nice fabric, good fit. It has definitely started stretching, and major -- I'm already on the tightest hook. The cups are definitely wide and the gore never did tack for me, so I personally would need a narrower, deeper cup but this is still the closest bra to ever fit for me. The cups come up too high for various low-cut dresses (that wouldn't be as low-cut if they had enough room for my boobs -- but I'm solving that by wearing an older bra with too-small, no-support cups and too-big band.

    34G

    Didn't fit

    I really wish elomi would make all their bras in a 32 band (and smaller)! I absolutely love the shape they give me and these bras a perfect under close fitting clothes and t-shirts.

    This 34 band is definitely too large for me. I put it on using the tightest hooks and it is still pretty big. If I take it in though, I think this bra would be great! It has one of the most comfortable bands I have ever worn and the fabric is so smooth. I also think the cups might be a little bit big for me since there is a bit of emptiness on the top outside part of the cups near the armpit. However, this might also be due to the band. When I tighten the band with pins, that wrinkling goes away and fits quite smoothly. I think I might order a 34FF anyways just to see if that would fit better.

    36GG

    Didn't fit

    Very usefull bra, good quality and a perfect t-shirt bra. A bit boring look.

    I can use it even thought it's a cup bigger, I think it's because it is a moulded bra.
    It's not really a cup bigger, it's just that I don't fill it on the sizes and the band is to big for me, I think maybe a 34J would be a better match. I'll probably buy one sooner or later.

    It's label says 36GG UK and 36J US. A 36GG would have been small for me, as I use to wear 36H, but this bra feels as if it was a 36J UK.
    I think it may run big in the cup, but I can quite say it because I'm not sure which is my regular size right now.
    But it's definitely bigger than my Panache Tango II 36H.
