My preference when it comes to wearing bras is always non padded, non moulded, cut and sewn cups. I would say the exception to this is very rare. My boobs know what they like and they don’t tend to stray away from their comfort zone. until now…
I felt my bust shape had begun to alter slightly and I had been eyeing up the Bijou Flirt by Elomi for some time. I was desperate to see if I could get a moulded bra to work on my boobs, so I gave my babes over at Lazeme a shout to see if they had any in stock and being the angels they are, they had one sent out to me straight away.
I was beside myself with joy when I put Bijou on and it actually fit! Usually with moulded styles I get major quad boob but my breast tissue sat beautifully into the hot raspberry cups of Flirt. The straps criss crossed over the upper section of my breast and although they dug in ever so slightly on my squishier bits, it wasn’t enough to cause me any great worry.
The cups gave my boobs a smooth rounded shape, perfect for underneath lower cut t-shirts for a bit of a fun & flirty vibe. Adjustable straps and decent band kept everything as it should be. Bijou Flirt is a very comfortable and practical whilst still looking absolutely gorgeous.
The main part of the briefs is fine. A nice basic shape, in smooth fabric. Comfortable and well sized, everything you need in a knicker. I do, however, have a few issues with the strap section. The straps are too thin for fleshy, squishy bellies. They roll and dig in, making it uncomfortable on the body. I would prefer for Elomi to either do away with the straps or consider making them much wider because this would be far more comfortable.
I got a 38H in the bra, would usually wear either a 36J or 38HH in Elomi but felt the H was absolutely fine. The briefs are a 20 and I would go up a size mainly die to the strap issue. Overall I’m so happy I now have a T-shirt style bra that I can actually wear and I whole-heartedly recommend it.
