Elomi Energise Sports Bra Review
Nothing we love more than a great sports bra (pretty obvious huh). For the fuller busted ladies out there they don’t come much better than the Elomi Energise. Here at SBD we are excited to announce we now stock this awesome Sports Bra. Providing you with even greater choice of styles and sizes. This high impact underwired sports bra is designed for fuller figures and/or larger cup sizes. As a new addition to our range we thought it important to provide you with a bit of background info on Elomi. And a review of this highly recommended sports bra.
Who Are Elomi?
Elomi was launched in the UK in 2008 by Eveden Group. Their focus was full figured bras and swimwear. In 2012 Elomi was acquired by Wacoal Europe along with other lingerie brands Freya, Fantasie and Goddess. Wacoal’s philosophy “our goal is that women everywhere feel more beautiful” focuses on their understanding that every women is different in terms of her size, shape, taste and even how she feels.
Elomi lingerie is dedicated to designing and manufacturing lingerie for the fuller figure and larger busts. Each Elomi bra style is tested on ladies with fuller figures to ensure maximum support, comfort and fit. Elomi have proven to be one of the best produces of fuller figure lingerie.
The Wacoal Group prides itself on responsibly sourcing of materials from trusted suppliers around the world. They manufacture in high quality environments with strict employee welfare policies and practices. The company also states that it is “making significant inroads to reducing our bra miles”. It does this by challenging aspects of their supply chain to shrink their carbon footprint.
We love this sports bra! It may not be the prettiest or funkiest sports bra on the market but its fit and support is fantastic, more than compensating for the plainer design. After all what is more important, especially when it’s covered by a top anyway? We also love the available sizes catering for fuller figures and also women with fuller busts. It really does offer high impact support and allow you to work out with confidence.
Features We Love
The Elomi Energise is made from a smooth satin microfiber material to wick away moisture and keep you comfortable. The material is also thick enough to provide some modesty on a cold day! The underwire is well positioned to suit different shapes and the panel above the underwire ensures your upper breasts are fully contained during any activity.
Elomi has recently added the J-hook to the straps allowing you to convert the straps to a racer back position. When testing this bra with the straps in a regular position we were impressed that the straps did not slip at all during our workouts.
The Energise bra supports each breast individually without compressing the breast tissue providing a great lifted breast shape and no uniboob! The cups are designed with four sections, including side support panels, to encapsulate each breast for ultimate support.
Factors you may want to consider
There are seams on the bra which are sewn flat but these can be visible under a tight fitting shirt. The additional upper panel provides fantastic support across the top of the breasts but may be visible if you are wearing a shirt with a plunging neckline or lower v-neck. Depending on the type of bra shape you are used to, and the shape of your breasts, you may find the cups a bit ‘pointy’.
The band can feel a bit tight when you are attaching the hook and eyes but don’t let this put you off as it is designed to be a firm fit as this provides additional support, however it is still incredibly comfortable and could easily be worn all day.
Overall we find the Elomi Energise Sports Bra fits true to size, is a dream to wear for any activity and comfy enough for all day wear too.
