Elomi Bijou

5 Dec

I say it every time but it’s so true – Elomi are just amazing at evolving their collections every season. Once quite a frumpy bland brand, they are now the ones I look forward to seeing the most at every Eveden press event as they just keep getting better.

I recently tried a style that I have wanted to get my tits on (or in) for ages – the Bijou set in black.

The Bijou is a moulded plunge that is available in sizes 34-44 E-H. The straps have a racer back option and the band had three hooks and eyes. It’s quite a simple bra in terms of patterns, but the black features some pink bows and stitch details.

I tried this set in a 34H/XXL and found the bra to be a very snug comfortable fit. The plunge is very low and it’s super firm across my boobs – unlike something like the Deco which features wider straps and a less dramatic plunge.

I did find that I popped out of the bra slightly, but I don’t believe that this was a sizing issue, I simply think that this style would suit women who have breasts that are fuller on the bottom and struggle to get cleavage in a plunge bra. I know of women who fall out of the Deco because of their breasts being fuller at the bottom, and I think the firmness of this style would suit them perfectly.

The racer back option is a very nice touch and very easy to clip up. It makes the bra feel even more supportive without it digging in or feeling restrictive.

The knickers are so soft and such a lovely fit, even on a generous derriere like mine. The can be pulled up to be slightly high waisted, but I do wish they were just a tiny bit higher on me as I do love a retro like set.
