Elila Response: The Elila sizing is classical in design and you need to add 5 inches to your band measurement to get the correct size to start with to figure you cup size.

The bra sounds a bit big for you and if you are looking for more structure with minimum amount of seams, try our molded 1803 softcup bra. If you would like more structure I would suggest style 1303.

HerRoom Response: We have forwarded your comments on to Elila for comment. We also note that you are petite in stature, which can be part of the issue.
Plastic bones serve two purposes, 1. is to keep the garment from stretching too much and 2. To help support the sides of a garment so it doesn’t roll. If they bother the wearer they can be taken out especially if they are petite because it will help the garment contour the body at the underarm more comfortably but be aware it may feel a bit bigger so adjust it accordingly when you hook it.

My only complaint is that being ultra-sensitive, the boning on this as in any bra is irritating to me. I may remove it because I haven't had a big problem with band roll and I'd rather have a little roll-up than the boning. It's possible this may alter the look some but I just want to be comfortable. I will say that the boning in this bra is less uncomfortable than some of the other bras I've tried lately. If boning hasn't bothered you before, it probably won't bother you in this style either.

HerRoom Response: There is actually a good reason for this.A cup size actually measures the amount of projection off your chest. Larger sizes require more mass to be 4 inches out in front than a smaller size. This is why they are not the same.
