Elomi Amelia Bandless Moulded Bra

The Elomi Amelia is a bandless bra, meaning there is no fabric band underneath the underwire so the bra band doesn’t roll and cut in. Seamless spacer fabric traps a layer of air within the cups for a beautifully rounded shape without adding volume. A perfect bra to wear everyday as a t-shirt bra. We find that it offers generous sizing in the cups, so if you are in-between sizes we recommend going a cup size down.
