Bralettes are so HOT right now and they are not set to go away any time soon. I frequently lust after the delicate and wire free designs out there but realistically they are not a practical option for my bust. Elomi must have known the struggle and came up with a bralette which is perfect for the fuller bust.
Charley has the full support that Elomi are now renowned for. The main bra section is based on their Kim style, with underwire, plunge shape and stretch lace to the upper cup. The “longline” section is a delicate lace overlay which has less structure to it. The whole bra is made of black mesh fabric with floral details. The straps are fully adjustable and the bra fastens with 5 hook and eye fastenings. This may be difficult to fasten if you have any dexterity problems.
Charley is available in a more limited size range to other Elomi styles and runs from 34-40 cups E- HH. The bra is generously sized, I am wearing a 38HH and a 36HH would have been fine. As mentioned previously the bra is based on the Kim/Jodie style so if you get on well with them you will love this! The longline section is a loose fit which means it doesn’t roll or dig in on my chubby torso something I find a great feature. The 3 section design brings the bust in and forward giving a more projected lifted shape. The bralette is extremely comfortable to wear as an everyday piece but is designed in a way that you could show it off as “underwear as outerwear”. I’m thinking of putting together some looks to show this off.
Elomi just continue to wow in the fuller bust world. They keep bringing us fresh, exciting and wearable designs. Going forward I’d love to see some more bodysuits and babydolls from them. In the meantime if Charley can be released in loads more colours that would be marvellous, thanks…
Overall Charley gets 5/5
