Earlier in the year I bought ‘Soraya’ by Elomi. I was immediately in love with the design and the fit was even better so imagine my delight when I saw what was on offer in AW17,
Elomi took the design and elevated it to a whole other
level and Nicole was born! Nicole is a red and black design, three section plunge with low centre gore and side panels, literally everything I look for in my bras. Whilst Soraya had a printed mesh & floral design, Nicole has a layer of actual black mesh lace adorned with sparkly yarns creating a leopard print design this all sits over a red stretch base. The focal point is the ‘butterfly’ style strapping which sits above the cup as an extra detail so coverage and support are maintained in the bra but there is still a fun and sexy addition at the cleavage.
As we move down things get even better (not something a bra fitter often says!) as the previous short style is replaced with a full brief in the same fabric as the bra and the top section has the same strap details above the waistband. It is two thin elastic straps that you can wear at the height you prefer. I played around with mine and did a “doubled” up look as well as having them separate, I also pulled them more onto my waist than the hip as this was more comfortable for me. I only wish the width was slightly thicker and the fabric slightly firmer just to improve comfort. I also think Elomi could possibly conisder offering a couple of style options in the briefs as they tend to just do one matching bottom in each set.
I am wearing a 34J and XXL briefs which is my standard Elomi sizing and it’s absolutely spot on. The bra is so comfortable and my boobs feel lifted and supported and seriously sexy! Briefs have a good bum coverage, nice wide hips and sit just below my belly button. The fabric is stretchy so I also feel my post baby pouch is under control.
For me, this set represents more than just a “nice set” Elomi are going from strength to strength producing unrivalled quality in plus size lingerie and giving girls like me the chance to have support, fit and style all in one package, something I wasn’t seeing even a year or so ago. They’ve given us sheer, strapping, plunging all in styles which actually work and all things which were previously reserved for the smaller bodied lady.
I am so excited to see what they will bring in the future and Nicole especially has done nothing to thwart my love for this brand.
