Elomi’s Bandeau and Full Cup Underwire Swim Bras

Sizes 36, 38 and 40E to HH, 42DD to HH, 44DD to H and 46DD to GG

Elomi Swimwear has two styles of underwire swim bras made to be worn under their tankini tops. These are made to be worn under Elomi’s tankini tops. Some reviewers wear one of these full cup styles as bikini tops anyway!

Elomi has made an actual underwire bikini top, which you can read about on our sister site here!

You could click on the words 'Buy Now' under the pictures of these swim bras, rather than "More" to go straight to them at Her Room. As I suffer with a healthy caution of commitment, I always avoid those, even though they commit us to not-a-thing anyway...
I guess that's healthy caution / fear for ya!

The Full Cup Swim Bras

Elomi ‘s , full cup, #ES7500, swim bras, are from their Isis collection. They come in the sizes listed at the top of this page. This swimwear style costs $70 and made to be worn under Elomi tankini tops.

However, if you read below under Reviews, you will find other, less pricey, ways women are wearing this plus size swimwear style!

What Elomi themselves Says about these Swim Bras

Thanks to Elomi’s reply to a review at Her Room we have this additional info about this bra sized swimwear style. This was in response to a woman who wears Elomi bras and found the difference between this swim style and her normal Elomi bras to be ‘Huge and Crazy’. For what it is worth, she wears an Elomi 36GG bra and tried the same size in this swim bra.

Elomi tells us: These swim bras are cut at the arm and center gore, (I’m venturing here that this is done to allow a wider range of motion one might want whilst swimming,), so these swim bras will provide less coverage than their intimate styles.

They found that most ladies can wear the same size in these swim bras that they wear in Elomi bras, some may have to go up a cup size. Still others found they had to go down a cup size…

As with bra styles themselves, a bit of trial and error will be involved.

Allow Time for Fit Discrepancies

My feeling about this is: Fortunately online stores today have excellent return and exchange policies, so provided you start soon enough, you will be ready with new, fitting, swimwear in time!

Elomi’s Full Cup Swim Bras Like their Bras

This is a swimwear style you may have seen in More’s Online Magazine “Best Swimsuits for Every Age, Size and Budget”.

These are extremely supportive swim bras designed for fuller busted, up to HH cup sized, women. They incorporate many of the lift and shaping features you will find in their ultra-supportive bras! Having:
  • Four part cups, lined with a non-stretch Simplex fabric. The four parts of the underwire cups are actually like a 3 part cups familiar to women who are wear HH and larger cup sizes, with addition side panel for superior lift and support! 
Let me tell you, as a wearer of 1st Fantasie, then Elomi, side support bras, this ‘Side’, or 4th panel really does add great support and lift without making an unnatural shape.

  • Like their bras, these swim bras have adjustable, (from the back band toward our shoulders), however, with plastic hardware straps, rather than the metal hardware of their bras. 
  • This style has stretch straps. 
  • with elastic edges of its sides and back to give you a custom fit. 

The back closure is a secure, wide barrel, rather than a hook and eye style. Sadly, this appears to be un-adjustable. They have a U back to help prevent strap slippage. These underwire swim bras made of Xtra Life Lycra to withstand chlorine and extend the life of your swimwear.
Reviews of these Underwire Swim Bras
Currently, (4/2013), these bras get great, and somewhat mixed resulting in a 4 Star average rating out of their 16 reviews.

These are from women who are wearing bra sizes 36G - H, 38E - HH, 40F, 42F -H and 44H at Her Room, starting in 2012.

What women like best about this swimwear style:
  • Great Fit 
  • Support 
  • Secure 
  • High Quality are also mentioned 
  • One reviewer says this style fits just like their bras 
  • Worth the Money 
One problem for many of us regarding Elomi’s idea of wearing a swim bra, over a tankini top is the cost.

Some ways you too might get more use out of this swim bra
  • One woman pointed out that its support made her look 10 pounds slimmer
  • She can wear it under last years, totally non-supportive, tankini top! 
  • Another points out that it gives her great fit and support and works under her one piece bathing suits!
  • One reviewer wears this as a bikini top
  • another started with it worn under her tankini top, then just dispensed with the tankini top altogether! 
Matching Tankini tops and bottoms Elomi’s Isis swimwear collection includes a variety of tankini tops, swim briefs, swim skirts and cover ups to wear over and with these swim bras.
Store that Carry These Swim Bras
As they are pricey, I would use this Elomi Swim Bras New With Tags which I have set to show those available at Buy it Now prices link to browse them at eBay stores.Once there, you could type your bra size into the search engine after 'Elomi Swim Bras' to speed your browsing. At sort by Best Match, without a bra size, I am finding these styles for $21 to $34 in the top row!

I buy bras this way with great success! At this update, I am finding 161 of these, not just the above swim bras, but also Elomi bra sized, underwire bikini tops, at great prices!
You could probably bid to get them for less, but I have never tried that, so I do not really know.

Her Room has these bras and the most reviews, so far. Bigger Bras and Bare Necessities also carry them.
