Bra Review - Elomi Cate Full Cup Bra (4030)
The Elomi Cate Full Cup Bra is the new and improved version of Brava's old favourite, the now-discontinued Elomi Caitlyn Side Support Bra. The update features a chic modern flair to the embroidery, ribbed detailing to the straps, and an improved fit underneath the arm! We've looked at the improvements in the new style for our Caitlyn connoisseurs.
AUS 12 - 14 (UK 34 - 36) E - K cups
AUS 16 - 20 (UK 38 - 42) DD - K cups
AUS 22 (UK 44) DD - HH cups
The leotard-style straps are a winner, sitting centrally on the shoulders and curving inwards so the straps sit closer to the centre at the back. The satin parts of the cup are silky smooth to the touch and super supportive for larger cups. The band is also a bit firmer than the Elomi Caitlyn Side Support Bra, so you may need a back size up or pop on a bra extender for the first few days of wear. While this might not sound positive, a firmer band means that women who are a true size 12 and sized out of the Elomi Caitlyn Side Support Bra due to its looser band can now try this amazing style.
What women love:
- The latte colour is a beautiful nude that is still unnoticeable under clothing.
- The textured straps are a cute and functional detail that prevents the adjusters from slipping.
- The elasticated edging on the top of the cup makes the Elomi Cate Full Cup Bra a dream to fit.
- Although this is still a full-cup style, the Elomi Cate Full Cup Bra has a slightly shorter central gore, making it better to wear underneath more clothing styles.
- The lace is smoother than the Elomi Caitlyn Side Support Bra.
What some women may dislike:
- The Elomi Cate Full Cup Bra is cut lower under the arm than the Elomi Caitlyn Side Support Bra. While this is great for many women who are less full on the side of their bust, some women may lose out on some side support.
- For petite frames who struggle with the fit of the Elomi Cate Full Cup Bra, try the Elomi Charley Bandless Spacer Moulded Bra.
We believe the Elomi Cate Full Cup Bra is a worthy successor to Caitlyn. With her improved fit and styling, Cate works well with more and more women worldwide.
