However. The half-cups are different. And worth a look for full-on-top shapes.
The only Elomi that has worked for me, thus far, is the Lara half-cup:
I don't find the Imogen to be as lovely as the Lara, but then I prefer ornate details and lush styling. Imogen is far more subtle. Like Lara, she has a sheer black mesh over a satiny base; in this case, the base is honey-amber, which doesn't show in the pics at all. Again, this is a very subtle pattern. Still, I find it preferable to plain black.
ComfortWires. Less wide than Elomi's other styles. These are almost just medium in width. Also, they are less tall under the arm, which is a solid plus for me.
Band. Meh. Like all Elomi styles it is non-soft power mesh. I don't like mesh, and I don't care for 'power' in my band. I'm not interested in intense scaffolding, just gentle support.
Straps. Elomi does these right: wide, soft, restricted stretch.
FitCups. The thinly padded dual vertical seam shape of the 1/2 cup gives a nice rounded profile: uplifted, but not overly projected.
The cup is slightly open on top, so no cutting in or mashing down of my natural full-on-top shape. Full-on-bottoms would likely do fine as well.
Gore. Wider than I need. It results in the gore floating a good 3/4".
There is enough depth in the cup, but the inner cup is a bit shallow and I'd actually prefer a lower gore.
When Do I Wear It?I generally wear lightly padded 1/2-cups instead of a Tshirt bra. So with thinner or clingy knits. And especially with deep scoop or portrait style necklines. The gore is too high to make the style useful for plunging necklines.
