Elomi is a popular full-figure bra brand for women with DD and larger cup sizes, under the Wacoal brand name. Elomi brand has special lines of bras designed specifically for us busty women of all shapes and sizes. For anyone who wears a cup size larger than a D, you might find consolation in the fact that some of their bra lines typically can’t be found in a cup size smaller than a D. Elomi accommodates cup sizes D-K (UK sizing) and band sizes 34 and up. It is true, the majority of brands available to women only cater to the few sizes around 34B. What are we supposed to do if we don’t fit such a narrow mold? Buy Elomi instead, that’s what!
Why I like Elomi
First and foremost, Elomi is a brand that makes bras for busty women. We are actually in the majority! The average bra size is no longer a 34B like it was in the 1960’s. But more importantly, Elomi designs lines of bras that honestly fit busty women. Regardless of your breast shape, you’re sure to find a bra in the Elomi brand that fits both your style and body type.
What is really special about Elomi brand is that they are under the Wacoal company, which established the Human Science Research Center in 1964. The entire purpose of this research center is to gather as much information as possible on women’s beauty, health, and bodies for product development. Thus, women who want to wear attractive, adorable bras without comprising a supportive fit, can find exactly what they want. Elomi brand has a variety of styles and unique designs. If you need a full coverage bra, a strapless bra, or any of their countless T-shirt bras, you’ll have plenty of options to browse through.
Elomi is one of a few brands under Wacoal, others include: Freya, Goddess, and Fantasie. Freya, and a few others under Elomiare lingerie lines designed for bigger breasted women. If you need active wear, sexy lingerie, conservative full-coverage, etc. Wacoal has got you covered!
Various Elomi bras and swimwear are available up to a K cup size, and use UK band and cup sizing. This means we need to be sure to do a little size adjusting before we buy. Don’t worry about size conversions; it’s super easy! And if you’re confused, just use an online bra size calculator. They’re readily available, and all you do is plug in your true US bra size for results. Easy!
Elomi bras are typically available in:
34E, 34F, 34FF, 34G, 34GG
36D, 36DD, 36E, 36F, 36G, 36GG
38D, 38DD, 38E, 38F, 38FF, 38G, 38GG
40D, 40DD, 40E, 40F, 40FF, 40G, 40GG

44D, 44DD, 44E, 44F, 44FF
46D, 46DD, 46E, 46F
48D, 48DD, 48E
The Elomi bras are designed for full-figures, and generally run from band size 34 up to a 44. Some bras on Bare Necessities are up to a 48 band. Cup ranges are advertised as being from D-K, but there may be a few exceptions.
For the band sizing between UK and US bras, it’s absolutely identical. Nothing to change or worry about there. The difference is in the cup sizing. If you are a DD or smaller cup size, you’re an exception and your cups size will be the same, too. If you are a DD or larger, you’ll want to look at the following scale of information:
- DD cup, you’ll also wear UK DD cup
- DDD or F cup, you’ll wear UK E cup
- G cup, you’ll wear UK F cup
- H cup, you’ll wear a UK FF cup
- I cup, you’ll wear a UK F cup
- J cup, you’ll wear a UK GG cup
Up to a DD cup, your cup size stays the same, anything above and the letters change a little. For general fit, Elomi bras run pretty true to size, but a few reviews claim to have problems with cups being a little large. If you’re unsure, buy down one cup size. Elomi band sizes can also run a bit large, so try a couple different sizes if you can.
The Best Elomi Bras

Where to Buy Elomi Bras
Buying lingerie online is becoming a more convenient and popular option for women. You have most sizes available to you, and can buy multiple sizes and return what doesn’t fit. Most sites have free shipping and unbeatable return policies.
My favorite store is Bare Necessities, which is managed by women and that understands the needs of larger chests. I don’t take a salary to manage this site, so I rely entirely on earning small commissions from each purchase to help support me writing new blog articles and doing bra reviews.Click here to read my lists of my favorite bras for you.
