Some New & A Highly Rated Elomi Bra Styles

Bare Necessities has new Elomi bras and panties in now. Three look like new colors in previous bra styles and the two that look entirely new I will show here.

First, I could not resist this highly rated, beautiful plunge style that, while not new…

I cannot help it, I am a fan of Elomi plunge bras, am wearing one now, and have loved them for years!

Elomi’s Anushka Plunge Bras

Right off, 2 of its three reviews indicate the cup size is smaller than they, who wear other Elomi bras, had expected. So if you do purchase this beauty, try one before removing tags! That said, I have had plenty of experience returning products to Bare Necessities with never a problem!

If you click on the picture of this bra you can find it now in the 34 to 46DD to HH size range! It has underwire four part cups, two hook and eye back with close set straps.

Bare Necessities has a beautiful, sheer back, matching panty in this Anushka line, in sizes M to 3X.

I so hope they come out with this style in a 32 band size as they finally did try with their Carmen plunge bra, which is the one I mentioned wearing. If so, I defiantly want this one too!

Elomi’s New Portia and Imogen Bras

Their Portia plunge bra comes in the 34 to 44DD to JJ size range and has underwire 3 part cups.

 icon icon 

Bare Necessities has the Portia Brief to go with this style in sizes M to 3X. The Imogen full cup bras give us underwire 4 part cups and come in sizes 34 to 44E to J at Bare Necessities now.

 icon icon 

This style has close set straps.

All of these bras mention the scalloped edges of the straps creating a non-slip strap effect. I never thought of it, but looking so does the Carmen bra I am wearing. I just never had an Elomi bra strap go out of adjustment on me. Now I know why!

These two new bras are too new for reviews and they do not seem to have a matching panty for the Imogen bra yet…

Unique Tie-Halter Bra by Ashley Graham

I had seen this at Addition Elle, (New Ashley Graham Lingerie Spring 2016 Collection at! Shop now.), listed as coming soon, and they have other Ashley Graham lingerie styles, but not Bare Necessities actually has this in full figure bra in stock now!

Ashley Graham’s Halter Bra

This self-tie halter bra is also an foam-lined underwire with side boning convertible long line bra. If you click on this picture below now you can find this bra style in sizes 36DD and DDD, 38 to 42C to DDD and 44C, D and DD at Bare Necessities now!

 icon icon 

I am not holding my breath waiting for a bra like this to come in my size, but I hope someone does at least head in that direction. I love the neckline and lace halter strap style!

Other Eyelash Lace Full Figure Intimates by Ashley Graham

Ashley Graham’s Fatal Attraction Sheer Lace Bra is available in the same sizes as the one above and provides unlined molded cup bust support with adjustable stretch straps and side boning.

 icon icon 

While this chemise simply comes in sizes L to 3XL, it does provide foam lined cups with removable pads. It also gives us side boning, adjustable straps and bra back style closure which creates a back keyhole.

Both Bare Necessities and Addition Elle have more beautiful intimates for us by Ashley Graham too!

Some New Lingerie styles by Hips and Curves

I had been posting these directly into this blog’s Facebook page, until lately that seemed to be fine. In recent weeks it has not worked, so…

Here are a few lovely new plus size lingerie styles we can find in New Arrivals at Hips and Curves lately!

They finally have pearl thongs back, (sizes up to 6X!),! I had long ago given this interesting lingerie style its own page, and you can check them out and compare them the few other available ones the Pearl and Lace Thongs page.

Lingerie to make the most out of Dressing and Undressing

Maybe it is just me, but I like many chemise styles because they can double as slips, creating a bit of fun at the ends of any given day.

Hips and Curves’ Sweet Romance Molded Cup Chemise gives us adjustable straps, a bra back and comes in sizes 1X to 3X and they tell us it best fits DD to F cup sizes.


 Their bandage bustier is another style which could make the most of changing! This comes in black in sizes 1X to 6X and best fits C to F cups. This sleek black strap and mesh lingerie style gives us hook and eye bra back, detachable garters and can be dressed up or down!

 Bandage Bustier

Strictly Lounging

I like the back view of this unique zipper, (two way functioning Zipper!), front chiffon baby doll style.

Click on its picture and you can view the sweet drape of the back of the skirted part below its adjustable back strap. This style also comes with a matching, zipper front, thong, and provides stretch lace cups and comes in sizes 1X to 4X in black.

 Zip Front Chiffon Babydoll 

They tell us their Midnight Rendezvous baby doll is made of a very soft and slightly sheer fabric. This style is available in sizes 4X to 6X

Midnight Rendezvous Babydoll 

I think of this last one as a classic, which can be nice too.

The New Elomi Carmen Plunge Bra for Less

Almost $10 less, already!

No sooner than I ordered my Elomi Carmen Plunge Bra from Her Room that I found this style starting at $54.36 to $57.46 New with Tags at eBay Stores.

That said, I needed the paler color, and the only ones available in my size were black…
Possibly next time for me!

FYI Elomi Carmen Bras NWT for Less

In the last post here I found this style $64 at all stores. Here is a brief breakdown of 3 of the 4 available for less at eBay stores, using this Elomi Carmen Bras New with Tags, Buy it Now prices at eBay stores link.
  • $54.36 Black sizes 38 to 42FF to HH
  • $55.87 32 to 44DD to JJ
  • $57.46 Sand color 32 to 42, 
  • but in 32GG, H and HH only…oh sob… 

You can view the black one well in the post just before this one, or click on the link to these styles at eBay stores above.
Here is a picture of the sand colored one with the Carmen panties!

Just occurred to me to see what Amazon has for Elomi Bras! Consider this below a bit of a test: Having looked, they have the normal price for the Carmen Plunge bras, but others well worth browsing if you, like I, are a fan of Elomi Bras!

Finally an Elomi Bra that comes in 32 Band Sizes!

Also in sizes Up to 34 to 40JJ, 42GG, 44G and 46DD

For some time now, (I think about 2 years), I have made comments to Elomi on Facebook and Twitter, (occasionally), along the lines of Oh Please make your bras in 32 band sizes!

I believe I might have mentioned how some full figure women are fuller in the hips, yet slighter, in some ways, above their waists…

I am thrilled to run into this, one so far, Elomi bra that comes in:
  • bra sizes 32GG to JJ, as well as
  • 34G to JJ
  • 36 to 40D to JJ
  • 42D to GG
  • 44D to G 
  • and 46D and DD. 

So far I am finding them at Bigger Bras, Bare Necessities and Her Room. They do not qualify for the former two stores current discounts, and are $64 at all three stores.

Her Room however has this excellent Free $20 Gift Card when you spend $100+ at HerRoom! Exclusions apply. Limited time offer, ends 12/18/15. Shop lingerie!! I have enjoyed this sort of thing from Her Room in the past and highly recommend it! The $20 gift cert you get this year will be good until the end of 1/28/16.

Naturally this is also a good way to add to our Her Room's VIPoints Loyalty Programicon points, if you have joined this free program. I have and you can read about the pros & cons, as I see it, of Her Room’s VIPoints program here if you like.

Elomi’s Carmen Plunge, with Stretch Cups, (and convertible to Racer Back) Bras

This is the black in this style, and I am so thrilled about their finally doing a 32 band size bra, I will show a picture of this one below it in its sand color!

These plunge underwire bras feature Elomi’s usual 4 part, (or 3 part with additional side support panel), cups.

However this particular one has stretch crochet look top panel across the tops of its cups. This bra’s one current reviewer says ‘makes them more adjustable for a smoother fit’.

You can click on this black bra above to go straight to this style at Her Room!

This is just a picture of this bra and matching panty in the above mentioned sand color!
These are available in sizes M to 4X. If you click on the above bra pictured in black and scroll down, you can find these panties at Her Room on the right.

This is a picture of this bra using its J hook to make the racer-back conversion! You can wear it regular style too of course.

Elomi has plenty of great plunge bras and convertible, to racer-back, bras, and full cup bras of course, in large cup and band sizes too!

Until now, I have never seen, (and oh boy did I look!), them in band size 32 until today! I am so glad they made at least one bra style, and that it is a plunge style, in this smaller band size!

I plan to make both of these, (black and sand), OK... at least one, in to my current wee budget!

I had to make the move to Curvy Kate, (32JJ balcony), from the Elomi bras, (full cup and plunge 34HH), I loved, due to diet and exercise for health reasons.

I did try Freya…going through plenty of exchanges and finally returns, at Her Room. I ended up giving up on Freya for me. Pity as I really love their appearance…

I will likely stick with the Curvy Kate balcony styles, as I am so tired of the full cup bras at this point…I believe I wore them for too many years.

That said, I hope Elomi makes more plunge styles in this 32GG to JJ cup size range.

If they do, I will certainly be thrilled to try them!

Her Room was excellent about the whole exchange and return process back when I was giving the Freya styles, and sizes, a go.

Their Gift Certs are nice and so is the VIPoints incentive.
