Very firm, supportive and well fitting bra. My best fitting and favorite bra so far (I am new to wearing the correct size). It makes my breast look round, instead of that hated pointy look. My only problem is that the end of the cushion's seams are a bit itchy and poky. The thread seems harsh there. This is a problem that I think I can either fix or will wear down over time though, so I still strongly recommend trying this bra for yourself! Love the color choices and my husband loves this bra.

This is one of the best bras that I have ever worn. It up lifts & gives great support. I love that it comes in more than one color! I wish that under garment makers would realize that plus size women would like choices & love color also, instead of the basic black & white. Darlene

This is BY FAR the most incredible bra out there for large busted women! Please don't change ANYTHING on this bra ... it is absolutely PERFECT! If you want to instantly look like you've had a breast lift .. try this bra. I originally purchased this through the catalog of another company who stopped carrying it. I was so glad to find it here on the web. Personally, I think Oprah ought to try this bra as I believe she would love it and feature it on "her favorite things" show. I give this a FIVE STAR rating!

One of the most uncomfortable bras I have tried. The hardware for the straps cut into the area and the areas where the seams ended and the band abraded my skin.

Elila Response: Please put the cushion strap under the strap hardware if u are sensitive. If the cup seams are chaffing then try a smaller cup size. kathy from San Jose

I was first introduced to this bra at a custom bra shop and was professional fitted. I was amazed at the comfort and the fit. As the store is quite a distance from my home, I discovered I could order the same bras online and have them shipped to my home. I also discovered the matching underwear and ordered them as well. I wash on gentle cycle in a front load washing machine and always hang dry (my husband even knows to pull them out and hang them up). I purchased some bras three years ago and additional bras 1 year later. I am still wearing all of them and they still fit terrific. I am in a conservative profession and these bras look great under everything. Noreen from Michigan

I do love this bra although it took me awhile to get used to it. I would love if this bra was made in a cooler fabric and had gel cushioned straps instead of the should pads, but I still like it. I did stitch the shoulder straps where I needed them which I always have to do to keep them from slipping. This is the best bra I have found in my size and compared to other bras I have to buy to support the girls. Lori from Nampa Idaho

My usual size is 36I or 38H depending on the brand. I first tried a 38I after reading some of the comments about sizing. The cup was to big and the band to small. Next I tried a 40G, which probable would have worked except my breasts pointed toward my armpits with a flat area between. I am really disappointed because this is the first bra to give me the support I need. This bra was not designed for women with small rib carriages and large breasts.

Elila Response: If you are short waisted I would suggest trying our style 1303 or 1607. They are supportive and can be more accommodating for a shorter frame type. Cheryl from Findlay

The bra is comfortable and has great lift BUT........the straps do not stay put. The clasp that is on the front of the bra slides loose. Now when you are wearing a larger size I would think that the straps would support the girls. Yes I know that most of your support comes from the band and not the strap and for a wirefree bra it does its job BUT when your girls are a bit heavy you can't be at work and all of sudden you feel the straps sliding and next thing you know you no longer have good support. If the straps stayed put this would be a great bra. when it is right I don't feel like I am wearing a bra--it's that comfortable but the strap clasps are not dependable. It is a shame because the bra would be a 5 star for comfort and support but those straps make it 3 at best.

Elila Response: If your bust is very heavy and the straps won’t stay adjusted to your liking, I would recommend stitching the strap down exactly where you find it most comfortable to inhibit gravity from taking over. Slides help temporarily but generally every time you put your bra on you should double check the adjustments because they always move. Autumn from washington

Very sorry I purchased this bra. Runs small and does not support.

Elila Response: I am sorry to hear that the garment didn’t meet your expectations or your current needs, our garments are firm support so if you are used to wearing a bra that has a lot of stretch in the band you might want to try and go up a band size with Elila and then re-evaluate the fit and support. It is very hard to determine if an item is a good fit for you if it isn’t the right size. Give our suggestion a try and let us know what you think. GLORIA from IL

although the cups fit very well, there is no give in the band making it very hard for someone with arthritis (like me) to get on. I would recommend going one band size bigger than normal to make it more comfortable. Also, the shoulder pads move around and I have trouble getting them on in the correct spot.

Elila Response: It’s helpful to place the shoulder pads before you put the garment on and you can keep them in place by tucking the excess strap into the pad itself to stabilize them. As for the back support, 60% of a garments support comes from the back of the bra and therefore the more firm the greater the support. You can try fabric softener when the garment is washed to give the garment a softer feel against the body. JI from Kentucky

It's very difficult for me to find a bra that fits. Especially one that isn't an underwire and that's pretty. This bra is high quality and it is pretty. The padded straps make it comfortable to wear all day. I just wish it was AVAILABLE in other colors... and, after wearing it (for months) the padded part of the strap starts to rotate. I'll buy another one without question. Laurie from Fairview, Oregon

I took other reviewer's advice and ordered up a band and cup size (I usually wear a 40GG in Panache). While size and fit were correct, the bra was uncomfortable for me. The metal strap tabs seemed to dig in to my upper arms. Kelly from Aliso Viejo/CA/USA

With a 36K I don't get much choice of bra. This bra is a bit industrial but the fabric is firm, looks nice and comfortable. The straps are nice and wide but I find difficulty keeping the pads in place. I've never really been a jogger with a figure like mine and a walking disability but this bra is really good at keeping things under control. Sophie from California

I have not found another bra that is as supportive as this one. I am a size 46I so the pickings are slim. At first it seemed too much bra but then I realized after several wearings that it provided the extra support I needed with a size I cup. The band and cups do run small so you may want to alter your size. I ordered a cup size larger after reading the reviews and the bra fit perfectly. I will order more of this style. Thanks Elila for taking care of people with extra large breast. Susan 46I Susan from Fargo, ND

Not a very "Sexy Bra" very but what great fit and support! I have always been "Full Figured" with large heavy breasts and I have had trouble finding bras in my size. I read the reviews on this website and decided to order this bra. Wow!, my posture has improved, no more sore shoulders and back. I wear high heels to work everyday and now I look and feel great! My husband commented how great my figure looked soon as I started wearing this bra. I also followed the recommendation in the reviews to go up a band and cup size (normally I wear a 38G or H) but ordered a 40I and the fit is perfect. I plan on ordering additional Elila Jacquard Full Figure Bras in the next few days. Judy from Irvine CA

This is a well fitting supportive bra. I like the fact that it has 4 sets of hooks and eyes so a person can get a really good fit. It is also nice to have the cushioned straps. My only problem is that I had to send one back because the clasp on the right strap wouldn't close. Audrey from California

I've purchased this bra before. I really like the support it gives me. I would recommend this bra for a bigger breast woman, looking for a bra to give them support. September from Fresno, CA

This is definitely a full-coverage bra and it's well-made with quality materials. It does have very good support, but I returned it because it didn't have enough side support for me; I need side support as strong as the towers on the Golden Gate Bridge (i.e., much more than most women). Otherwise, it's a good bra! Martha from California

The band size on this bra is much smaller than it says and it was extremely tight. The cups also fit a bit strangely - instead of lifting me up, it squashed me down horizontally and my breasts were pointing away from my body instead of forward. No matter how high I adjusted the straps, the shape of my breasts stayed the same and was very unflattering. My husband even said it looked wierd. I ordered 2 of the same bra, and at first, we thought there was a defect with that particular bra, so I tried on the other one and got the same results. This one needs to be tried on in several different sizes to ensure a proper fit. Lisa from Herndon, VA

This bra has very good support. The only think I don't like is the jewel lock buckles - they irritate my skin. Lori from Hemlock, NY USA

I love it. It has a ton of support for a full figured person. I love how the straps can be adjusted. The straps do not fall off of my shoulders. I love the cup coverage as well. Just a really great bra in my opinion. Shawnee from Carson City, Nevada, USA
