I absolutely hate shopping for bras, Trying to find pretty bras that are comfortable, supportive, flattering and fit properly almost seems too much to ask when you have big boobs. When I was offered an Elomi Carmen Plunge Bra from Lingerie by Victoria to review, I couldn’t say no. Owning a beautiful bra would make a change from all the boring plain ones that are in my underwear drawer.
I ordered a 40DD, which is my usual size but it seem to be on the smaller size – I think a professional bra fitter would say I need a 40E. There doesn’t appear to be a size guide on the website, which would have been useful. Saying that, it was comfortable and looked absolutely lovely. It’s plunge style and is underwired, but it isn’t padded.
It is ridiculously pretty, with lots of lace and crochet detailing. The straps can be worn in either racer back or straight style which is nice because you can adjust them according to your outfit or comfort. The bra is available in cup sizes DD to J, proving that it is possible to find pretty and flattering bras in bigger sizes.
At £38, it’s more than I would usually pay for a bra, but definitely worth every penny!
