I was very excited about the Elomi Energise sports bra becoming available in a K cup… and of course I had to get my hands on one as soon as possible! I’m happy to report I wasn’t disappointed. So much so that I might need a replacement for the poor thing already!
Do you ever have one of these days when you’re sore or bloated and no bra feels right? I received my Elomi Energise on one of these very days and as soon as I tried it on I knew I’d have to keep it on all day. That’s how comfy and supportive it is.
The fabric is thick and sturdy, effectively reducing bounce, but still breathable. Like most sports bra, it is high coverage, but the wires don’t come up all the way to the top of the cup, which makes it much comfier. I also appreciate the wide straps, which don’t dig in.
I have broad shoulders and don’t mind widely spaced straps, but I would advise this bra to more petite ladies. Not only the straps are quite a bit more centered than on most, but a J-hook allows you to turn the bra into a racerback, which brings the strap even closer to your neck. Support is the same regardless, but the J-hook does provide a little more uplift.
Finally, this is a very shallow bra. I understand that some will see this as an issue, but I don’t, even though I’m quite projected. When exercising, I really enjoy a bra that keeps my breasts as close to my chest as possible, in a compact manner. And even on a day to day basis, I like to mix things up in terms of fit. Very projected bras might technically fit better, but in very large cups sizes you can run into issues of wired digging in, which you won’t get in a shallower bra. You might also realize that even if you don’t have any pain, your back gets more of a workout when wearing a very projected bra. All in all, I try not to wear the same type of bras every day. But that is a matter for another blog post!
In terms of sizing, Elomi Energize has quite generous cups, but I’ve noticed that, as it is often the case, this bra runs smaller in black than in white. In my experience, the white bra ran 1 to 2 cups large, wheras the black one ran not quite one cup large. Then again, it might be the particular bras that I’ve tried. Elomi Energise also comes in beige, which I haven’t tried because, well it’s beige and in pomegranate, which might be the colour of my next sports bra.
It is available in the following checked sizes.
This has become my go-to sports bra (I still wear the Royce for yoga) and it’s great being able to wear racerback tops to my dance class. I’ll definitely get a new one pretty soon. Thanks, Elomi!
