I’m going to write about my experience meeting with Suzanne from Eveden, but I want to break up the experience into two posts. This post will focus on the bras from the upcoming season that I got to touch with my own little paws….and let me tell you….they are DELIGHTFUL. We were hanging out in Panera Bread and I apologize to the people sitting next to us whom were shocked when Suzanne was laying the bras on the table 🙂
The fabric, admittedly, looks a little shiny, but it’s not that terrible in person. When I first saw this I thought “CHRISTMAS!!”. Very cute and a lower gore than the “Caitlyn” bra.
This chemise is GORGEOUS… The fabric of the lower half is really soft and has the most delicate rolled hem at the bottom. It’s a fairly simple piece. My biggest complaint about this? The price point of $86.00…..which is w/out matching panties. The Maggie panties are $24.00, making the set a whopping $110.00. I told Suzanne it would be nice if the chemise came with a thong or a g-string, but we also talked about how the benefit to having to get panties separately is for those with size differences in tops and bottoms. I don’t know if you know this – I’m kind of frugal. I wouldn’t say cheap, but I choose to spend my money on nice things that I can’t live without. I suppose I could live without the Maggie chemise because of the price.
What was really striking, for me, was the color of the Paloma in person. From the photos in the press release, it looks like the Paloma is going to be almost a royal blue. BUT, the bra itself is actually a deep, rich purple. The bra is a padded half cup (yay!), but only goes up to a G cup. Suzanne told me that this does run true to size, so anyone who is sized out is – unfortunately – sized out. (Unlike the Freya ‘Faye’ which is roomier in the band). I want this bra, and I want it NOW.
Want, want, want! I love this bra! The cups are made of Satin Simplex and stretch lace. Of course, this bra screams valentine’s day, but it is truly gorgeous. I love the low (see: very low) center gore, the rosettes on the center gore and straps, and just everything about this bra. This bra is fit on the Betty frame, so it should be something that Betty lovers will also like.
In comparing the Valentina and the Maggie, you can see the huge difference in gore height. The Maggie also has more side coverage.
That’s all of my pictures of Elomi bras; It’s important to also note that all of the bras (except for the Paloma) feature 4-part cups to push tissue forward instead of the side. These are all so gorgeous and soft and feminine. ❤
I cannot say enough good things about the Susanna. It is definitely a relaxed cup (think Andorra), and the materials are so. incredibly. soft. The lower cup and the upper lace cup are equally, amazingly soft. I want to wear this bra. Suzanne told me that the Susanna is true to size and for those that it works for, it is a perfect fit, hugging the body in all the right ways. WANT.
Freya “Carys” Longline
Freya “??” I cannot for the life of me remember the name of this bra. Please comment if you know it!!
