Elomi is one of the plus-sized brands among the Eveden group. It carries band sizes from 34-44 and cup sizes D-JJ. Elomi stands out among other plus-sized brands in that it carries beautiful long line bras, basques, babydolls, and swimwear. They also carry plunges up to J cups (UK sized), which is rare for many brands, especially for a plus-sized lingerie brand. They make a real effort to provide beautiful, colorful, and comfortable lingerie for plus-sized women.
FitAs I said in the intro, this was the best fitting of the Elomi bras that I tried, that being said, it was still about a cup size too small. It wasn't a horrible fit but the center gore didn't quite lay flat, and especially on my larger side there was a big of bulging. I'm pretty confidence that a 34J could have been a really good fit. Ideally, I would have gotten to try a 32JJ but, sadly, Elomi doesn't carry 32 bands. This means that compared to my usual Ewa Michalak size I'm about one cup size smaller. In Fantasie and Panache I usually need about a 32J or 32JJ so it seems to run similarly to those two.
The bra was extremely comfortable and this is one I'd definitely consider buy, especially for T-shirt days. Hourglassy (who has a much shorter torso and is more full-on top than me) also has a review up and she found that there was too much space in the bottom of the cups/too high of underwires for her. Since I have a long torso, the underwires were definitely NOT a problem! Moreover, I always appreciate more room in the bottom of the cups being that I have bottom heavy breasts. It just goes to show how different the same bra can fit on two women.
The detailing on the bra isn't *that* exciting. At least for someone like me, who has tried a lot of lingerie. However, ladies who are just stepping outside of their comfort zone of the traditional black/white/beige bras might find the bright colors exciting (and the colors ARE very pretty!). The cups are smooth so they'll do well underneath t-shirts, even if a seam or two might show up.
- Recall that this is a mini review so I do not own the item of clothing and can't comment on wear over time, how well it works for breastfeeding, price point etc.
- Other reviews can be found by: Hourglassy, Fussy Busty
- I didn't have a chance to try breastfeeding in this but my guess would be that it wouldn't be that easy considering this is a more full-fit bra.
- It seemed pretty true to size for your average Eveden group bra (compared to Fantasie).
