When was the last time you were “properly” fitted? The last time you had a segzy bra that “lifts and separates?” Yes, there are bras that fit this and today, I have a look book for you! It has been a while since I have had the pleasure of sharing the latest from European plus size lingerie brand, Elomi. Are you familiar with them? Fit, form, and function. I love saying that, but in this case, we also have fashion and fanciness to add to the mix! I mean, I am one who does not mind spending a little more for something that will keep the girls in place and supported! Especially as I JUST had the funnest time being fitted yesterday at Nordstrom, by Jennifer who is part of the Eveden team! She knew her bras and her way around the “girls!” But first, let me share a little more about them and share with you the Elomi Spring 2015 Collection!
“Sheer elegance and total comfort go hand-in-hand with Elomi lingerie who are part of Wacoal Europe, a company who understand what lingerie can do for the fuller figure and for your confidence.
Elomi allows full figured women to enjoy total fit and support in a range of sophisticated looks, right up to a J cup. However, Wacoal Europe are dedicated to designing and manufacturing stylish lingerie for women of all ages. And sizes.”
Elomi Spring 2015 Collection
Um, hello longline bra! I love it and love the parasols on it! Too damn cute! I also want all the colors of a few of these bras. DROOL! Elomi Lingerie is part of the Eveden lingerie family including Freya, that carries up to a K in select styles; Goddess, that carries up to an N; Wacoal, at up to an FF; and Fantasie at up to K in select styles! So, if you cannot find or if you do not see anything in this collection that excites you, you have options!
You can shop quite a few of the newest arrivals from the Elomi Lingerie collection (and its family brands) at Nordstroms.com! (this is where I got fitted) I also advise that you get fitted at places that sell your size- to ensure a proper fit! Some stores even have fitting events! Do this!

Ohhh and guess what? Elomi Lingerie also has swim! I will be sharing more about this soon! But let me tell you about my fitting and a few tips I learned! I did learn that all these D’s we are used to over here realty affects our perceptions of fit and size! They even had a conversion pamphlet to show me!
Three Easy Plus Size Lingerie Fit Tips from Elomi:
- The band needs to be snug and anchored low on the back- parallel to the floor
- The underwire should be resting BEHIND all breast tissue (even on the sides- this was my biggest fit issue) and placed close to or beneath the underarm.
- The center front of the bra should rest against the chest wall (also known as “tacking”) to provide separation!
I knew, thanks to LiviRae Lingerie that I was a much larger cup than a DD, but Jennifer from the Evedem team got me into a 36 G from Elomi. How about that?!?!
Sooo, the question I have for you is, which ones are your faves from the Elomi Spring 2015 Collection?
