Elomi Sachi: A New Take on Strappy Bras
By HOLLY JACKSON
I was going through my Instagram feed the other day when I saw a post by a local friend lamenting the lack of standard bras. “What do you do with all the extra straps? How do you get into them?” she asked. In many ways, I sympathize with her. I try a lot of bras for work and I have been the person consulting promotional images trying to figure out how to get into a five strap bra without choking myself – it’s not fun. I also remembered all the times I have worn my Sachi out with its visible straps and gotten compliments on my dress or my shirt, since most people don’t realize that the two aren’t connected. Not all strappy bras are built alike, so today I’m going to talk about why the Sachi is the perfect strappy bra for those of us who are not necessarily on the bondage inspired lingerie trend train yet.
The Elomi Sachi is notable not just because it comes in Elomi’s classic and unbeatable plunge shape, but also because it’s a bondage inspired bra that uses straps to create a more classically feminine look. Instead of the classic harness profile, the straps create a butterfly effect with a small keyhole at the bottom. I tried both the glittery red animal print version last season and the black version this season, which means I’ve been wearing a Sachi bra at least one day per week. I have never been interested in the strappy bra trend previously, but these bras have made me rethink it.

Depending on your interests and lifestyle, it can be hard to wear a full harness underneath an outfit and still dress appropriately. However, the Sachi’s butterfly detail works under almost any outfit most of the time. I’ve worn it under dresses at family dinners and even to a few business meetings with lingerie related clients. Under a low cut dress, it reads as a graphic detail and under higher necked pieces it functions like a piece of jewelry. It’s a bra that can truly transform a basic outfit into something fashion forward and interesting.
None of this would work without the Elomi quality behind it. Elomi spent more time developing their strappy bras than some other companies out there and I think it shows. This bra provides all the comfort and support that Elomi is known for, while transforming a potentially hard to wear trend into something that works with almost any wardrobe and personal style.
