Ran very small. I ordered several bras in the same size, and this one was a full size smaller than the others, I think.

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. KQ from Ohio

Nice bra but it was too small. Did not fit and neither did the Elila 1303. Linda from North Haven, CT

I wear a different Elila bra that I like, but it was back ordered so I tried this one. Not enough support, returned it. Abigail from Moscow, Idaho, USA

Seems like a good bra, but not for me because the straps are set too wide at the front, and dig into my armpits. (they are set close together in the back however...) I ordered this bra because I was so pleased with the other Elila bra I had just purchased and was hoping another style in this brand might also be as great...and I needed a white/neutral color... Unfortunately it did not work out...VERY good quality with nice features (NO wire and under-bust support), so I was hoping it would :( DTC mom from Floyd Co Virginia

very comfortable to wear as an "everyday bra" with just the right amount of support. If you get your correct size, the fit is great with enough room in the cups to stop top and side spillover. Will order again in the future. The material is very soft and fits smoothly under clothes. Bonia from Richmond, VA

Nice looking bra - fit okay, initially; boobs "migrated" to the uniboob look within a couple of hours. Would not recommend.

Elila Response: 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. MG from PA

The bra size runs very small compared to other bras. I tried a 46B and could not fasten the bra! I couldn't believe it. I was looking forward to this bra and then it didn't fit and they don't make bigger sizes. I feel like the sizes are designed by someone who knows nothing about women and their needs. Just because a woman needs a bigger band size doesn't mean they need a bigger cup size.....yet can one ever find various cup sizes in larger band sizes? I guess another example of a bra being designed by someone who doesn't have to wear one!! I thought this bra was going to be the answer to my desire and then it ran so small to size....I was really shocked....I'm not that big but this bra ran small. I was so dissappointed.

4.0 - 4.5. Nice bra. Good looks and comfortable fit. Extremely supportive. Washes up easily by hand. I am tickled pink. Wanda from Baltimore, MD, USA

it is relatively comfortable. I was looking for a bra with lot's of side support. This bra has some but not as much as it could have, but more than I've seen. The straps do stay in place which is a problem I had before. The under arm area could be narrower. All in all this company makes a good product. Thank you. sally from port jefferson station,ny,usa

help I love the fit but the side stays bend and cut me has any one tried to take them out without changing the fit or ruin the bra ?????? any suggestions ?????

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.

Elila Response: 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. sue from plantsville ct usa

I was dreaming about Elila bras since long time, finaly I found it on sale.I ordered my regular size 44D,but it is not one size too small,but 2 sizes.What an unpleasant surprise. So be careful with sizes ,order at least one size bigger or even consider two sizes more. Quality of this bra is perfect zemkacz from NYC

Excellent support and uplift for average to full figures. Smooth under clothes. I like that it's offered in smaller cups because I am large enough to really require good support but not big enough to fit some of the other full figure styles. I think if you are more average in the cup you may have to size down in the cups slightly because the full figure styles are designed with fuller cups. I'm probably in between the 38B and 38C but I got the B. Also if you are between band sizes pick the bigger one because (as a supportive bra) this bra is firm; it has some stretch, but not ultra-stretchy.

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.

The cups on this garment were too large. I will never understand why manufacturers always increase the cup size as the number goes up. A D cup should be the same D cup whether it's 36D or a 46D.

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. WANDA from OAK FOREST,IL. USA

I love the Elila bras. After 30 years, finally found bras that fit. The bras (and I have many styles, including Style 1307 - Satin & Microfiber Softcup Bra) fit very well, are comfortable, give a nice shape and have excellent support. The best thing is that once you put them on, they stay put; never have to tug at the bra until you take it off. Also, being a "G" cup, the support and quality of the Elila bras have taken away the pressure on my shoulders & neck. My rating of four stars is due to the fact that the cup size runs small; had to order next size up (G). Jane from Pittsburgh, PA USA

This bra is GREAT!! I decided on this particular bra because of the great reviews it had received from other women, and it has completely lived up to its hype. The fit is almost perfect. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the cup size is just a little small. Next time I would order 1 size larger. The fabric is fabulous! Smooth under clothes and incredibly comfortable. I have a VERY hard time finding bras that I am happy with. Not only do I need a large cup size, but also a plus size band width, and due to a chronic medical condition I cannot wear an underwire. This bra is gentle on me, not causing any pain in my ribcage and it lifts my breasts up to where they should be (hallelujah!) and keeps them there, i.e. it doesn't stretch out over a period of hours. If you are heavy breasted and have given up on having high, perky looking boobs, give this bra a shot. I would order one cup size up if you are filling the entire bra cup. (full g order h etc.) Happy bra hunting! Robin from Olathe, Kansas, USA

I bought this in black about two weeks ago. I like it a lot and keep hoping that it's clean or that it will clone itself in my bra drawer. Very supportive, very strong, yet not dorky or pointy. (I've already taken the bow off. Who needs bows??? Why are they there?) My SO said it looked like a bikini top. Pretty cool! Heidi from Northcentral Pennsylvania

I like the leotard back and the simplicity of this bra. If it was possible to wear it under clingy fabrics without seeing the seams, I would have given this a 5. Ordinarily, I buy sizes ranging from 40DDD-42G. I tried this on in a 42F and it is very comfortable. It provides a lot of lift and is kinda cute in a really retro kinda way (if you like that sort of look). Julie from NYC

I recently bought the Elila 1305 in the same size, and it met all of my expectations. However, the Elila 1307 truly did not. First, the cups weren't as generous. Second, it did not offer the support you would expect from a plus size, full-figure bra. The straps dug into my shoulders, indicating that point. The bra is almost too "stretchy" to offer the support needed for a full and heavy-busted woman. Third, this bra is advertised as having "hidden" seams, which isn't the case, at all. I put on a t-shirt, and was clearly able to visually see the seams through my shirt. I wish Elila would make a seamless or non-visible seamed bra of the same caliber as the 1305. J. Kier from
