I really love the front closure bras and was thrilled when I found this one. I love that I can move the shoulder pads where I need them instead of the padded part being between my breast and collarbone. The only issue I have with it is that the seam in the lower cup isn't where it should be and the outer piece of fabric needs to be about an inch wider so that the separation is more natural. Other than that the cup fits great. Thank you Elila for making life easier for the larger woman. Nancy from Pine Bluff, AR, USA

I ordered this bra for my 83 year old mother-in-law. It is surprisingly hard to find a front hook bra in the really large sizes! This met all of her criteria-- No wires or stays, front close, sturdy but soft fabric, and pads on the straps. We both liked that the cups were shaped naturally and did not have the "torpedo" look! An excellent buy! Cheryl from Sun Prairie, WI, USA

One of the few suppliers for a front hook bra in my size. It gives me decent support and is more easier to manage than a back hook bra. Would prefer a wider back to help balance out the front when I am wearing it. Overall good bra and good fit. MYDSMIV from Greenville, NC

Good quality, but bulky and did not fit right. Front closure is very difficult for someone my size to put on...

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your comments. We have forwarded to Elila for a response.

Elila Response: Front hook garments can be challenging to get on but you can try a couple of things, you can hook it while it’s at your waist and pull it up or hook it above your chest and pull down. You can also use your arms to separate your bust in order to hook it when it’s directly in front. If you would like the same support but in a back hook, I would suggest style Elila 1305.

The sizing was off on this bra in my opinion - the cup size was much smaller than normal for my size and the band also seemed tight. It was extremely uncomfortable and very, very difficult to even get on. Total thumbs down, I'm returning it. No way would I wear this bra for more than 2 minutes.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. The Elila brand is a very exact fit. You probably need a different (larger) size.

Elila Response: If the band is too tight, nothing is going to fit correctly and it will be too difficult to close (impossible). Elila is a classically sized brand and cannot be compared to garments that are very stretchy. We make plus size firm control garments that have a lot of structure/support/uplift. Kelly from Georgia

I was looking for a supportive front close bra, as Goddess discontinued the style I found most comfortable. I have also purchased the back close version of this bra in the past, and the fit is not the same. I really wanted to like this bra, but the cups run small (I wear a 42J), the bra is stiff even after washing, the band does not have enough give in the back, and it felt like the girls were extending from my armpits...

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your comment. We have forwarded it on to Elila.

I really enjoy the shoulder pads on the bra, I have a very heavy chest and the shoulder pads make a huge difference on the weight my shoulders carry. Thanks Kristy from Louisville Kentucky, Jefferson

I bought the front closure very of the Elila Jacquard SoftCup b/c i could not hook the regular back closure version up completely b/c the waist band does not stretch much. The back hook version was hard to pull down to hook up all 5 hooks. I'm only 5 feet tall so my arms weren't strong or long enough to reach up my back that high. It's a very sturdy bra, it has great support and the best part is the sliding shoulder pads. they work great i positioned them where i needed the padding so the straps would not dig into my shoulders and they stayed put all day. The only 'not so perfect' part of the bra is b/c you opt for a front closure the cups are not separated by fabric that lays on your chest as with the regular back hook version. you won't get that 2 separate cups in the end look. The front closure can't hold itself to your chest but i still ti it's worth the trade off b/c i can hook it myself easily. Dara from Oxford, CT

Cup Size fit was smaller than the back closed bra of the Elila same cup and band width. Therefore, I had to return this bra. I ordered 2 front close, but because I wore one I ended up keeping 1 which does not fit correctly. By the way, I ordered the front hook bra based on the back hook bra I already owned. Apparently that was a mistake, the back hook does not fit the same, cup wise, as the front hook. Mary from Upper Marlboro, MD

Very good quality bra that actually fits me! The support is good, although I've only worn it a short time - so don't know the durability yet. A little hard to get on, but I'm getting better at it! The only negative is that I would rather it didn't make me stick out so far. It is comfortable, however. Claudia from Delano, MN

This bra, while it fits ok, just gives an unwanted look. It's alright for lounging around the house.. I wouldn't wear it in public. Gives the *bullet* look and kinda just looks frumpy. I am happy they have bigger sizes so gave a star for that, love the front hooks, another star... although after putting away groceries and putting a load into the washer 3 of these fine front hooks came undone... another reason not to wear in public. Keep going Elila, your on the right track, just not there yet. Gina from Country Gal, USA

This was certainly not one of the better fitting bras I've found - it was extremely uncomfortable just trying to put it on, though once I managed to get it on it wasn't too bad. While my husband found it greatly entertaining, I couldn't appreciate the fact that three to five of the seven clasps would come undone each time I moved my arms, and unfortunately had to return this bra.

Yes....finally one that does what I need it too. Excellent support both around the rib cage and also over the shoulders. Will purchase another one. I highly recommend this Bra for large breasted women. Carol from Albany, Or. United States

Overall, great fit, true to size, keeps the girls where they belong without bounce, the front clasp only has one row, so be sure to order your true size. Good value, most of the time I have spent $50+ for a decent bra and then had to have it tailored. This fit right out of the box. Shipped out really fast. Geri from Carrollton, TX

For me this is an excellent bra to have. I sweat a lot underneath and after maybe six months the bottom two hooks fell off. I had mine for over a year now and I wont get the front hooks again. I only got two the first time. Because I don’t want to have to spend $200 on four bras. Once the bra gets stretched out you have to adjust the stapes. I only tried the front hooks because I can’t hook a bra from the back. I will try the back hooks and see how that goes. Jennifer from West Lafayette IN, USA

I was extremely disappointed that this bra did not come close to fitting when I finally received it. I have been measured and this was the size I was supposed to choose. Also, upon trying to get the bra on, I realized that the fabric was course and very stiff. It's so frustrating that I have to purchase my bras online because of my behemoth bosom anyway but it amplifies my frustrations when the product doesn't fit. I do not think this product is sized correctly but hopefully I can exchange it for a bigger size. Christy from Van Buren, AR

I love this bra!!! It fits very snugly, yes, but that's a good thing. It keeps the "girls" in place and fully supported. As far as straps digging into the shoulders, I think most women with extremely large breasts have this problem. This bra seems to really minimize this issue. I also love the fact that I don't have to deal with the jiggle factor, I refer to this bra's support as "locked and loaded". I have had problems with hooks wearing out over time but that happens on most of my bras, I just sew on new ones from the sewing supply store. Only fuss is it needs to come in other colors.

I love this bra! This was my second purchase. Very good product, from the front clasps, cushioned shoulder straps, back support, no under wire...all of these things are great. However, the best thing to me is that Elila bra makes my actual cup size. Thanks to Elila and HerRoom, I never have to deal with dreaded and unsightly spillage out of the front or side of the cups or the tri-boob or jiggle factor ever again! Grace from Saint Albans, NY USA

This bra has no give whatsoever and like someone else has already said it is the most uncomfortable bra I've ever worn. I thought for the price I should have gotten a better fitting and more comfortable bra. I did like the moveable shoulder pads. Patsy from Dayton,Ohi

This is the best fit and support I've found in years. Usually I wind up with a cup size that's too small but the largest I can find. My only wish to make this the dream-come-true bra is to find this size in a cotton bra (or at least a cotton lining). Irene from St. Peters, MO

I have truly enjoyed this bra! The material was a little rough at first, but once I broke it in, it has been wonderful. I am so happy that I took a chance and ordered this bra. Cheryl from Birmingham/Alabama/Jefferson

Runs much smaller size than same brand with back close bra. Sadly I expected it to fit as it is the same size as other Elila Jacquard (back close) bra. No return/exchange after tags are removed. If exchange with tags still attached, still must deal with shipping fees and guessing as to how much to estimate for size difference allowance. Customer from WA

I've purchased 2 of these bras and I absolutely love them. I've always had a bigger chest and this is the first time I've ever found a soft cup bra that actually holds me up from the time I put it on in the morning, until I take it off at bedtime. I was used to wearing underwire, but I have to say, I love the feeling of no wires poking me or making me feel uncomfortable! I'm currently 7 months pregnant and for me, the back support of this bra is tremendous. You can see where my breasts end and my belly begins!!! For anyone that is big chested, I would recommend trying this bra out. I was always a skeptic about softcup, but I love these bras!! Jennifer from Iowa

It places too much weight on your shoulders.

HerRoom Response: Generally, if there is too much weight on your shoulders, you need to go down a cup size to get better support. Pam from Venice FL
