I work as a police officer, ride horses as a hobby and still want to feel sexy at times. I bought this bra for work. Keep in mind that I wear a bullet proof vest at all times when I'm working so I had to have something that breathes fairly well and has coverage and that is comfortable. I picked this bra because of suggestions made in other reviews. I hate it for what I do. The boning on the side dug in and caused sores that were so painful after one day that I swore I wouldn't wear it ever again. I did try again and just couldn't do it. Since it didn't work for work, I thought maybe for horseback riding. Fellow riders, I wouldn't suggest it either - embarrassing bounce! Mind you, it's not sold as a sports bra, it was just recommended by others as a nice alternative. I disagree. If you're just looking for a basic everyday bra, this would fit the bill, but if you are going for impact control or comfort, pick something else. Nikki from Kansas

Comfort of wicking cotton, great support and lift and non stretch straps makes this bra a hit. We have tropical climate here and I have always been searching for cotton bras with fabulous support: a search which has now ended with a happy note. I have been through pregnancy, weight gain, nursing, weight loss and I have owned this bra in sizes 36DDD, 36H, 38H and this is the 'underlying' reason for my elevated self esteem. After a year and half of wearing them (I own just 3 bras), they are still in great shape. Thank You Elila for this introducing this product and Herroom for making this available online. Please do not discontinue this product ever. K from Kansas City, MO

Fits like an armour. Not an option for sports bra, but great for everyday wear. It lifts, supports and shapes. Yes, the seams are visible under really tight tees, but where can any top heavy woman find tees that actually fit? The side stays are a bit rough when new, but tones down after a couple of washes. The no stretch center pull straps were just what I have been looking for; I am fed up of elastics- they loosen enough to toss the bra away in almost 6 months. Positives: Lift, support, non stretch straps, wide back coverage, great value for money, long lasting Negatives: not an option for sports bra as herroom suggests it to be Suggestion: A black color option, perhaps? Overall: Great (must try) for top heavy women who hate underwire but like to keep a supportive bra. SV from MI

Great fit. Finally found a brand that works for me. I have a problem with separation, typically non-underwire bras give me uniboob, but this one did a great job of defining my silhouette. Not too stretchy in the band and straps - made it a bit difficult to fasten and to adjust the shoulder straps, but once that was done I had no problems with my adjustments slipping or stretching out. The straps being centered on the cups was the little change that made a big difference. Most of the bras nowadays are made with side pull, ending with the straps falling off my shoulders or pulling my breasts even more together in the center. Manufacturers need to be aware of the need for more center-pull straps! Norma from Illinois, USA

This bra is extremely well made and supports like no other bra I have ever worn. I would have given 5 stars, but I had to remove the supports on the sides, they were digging in to me to the point of bruising. This is my second purchase of this bra and my first at herroom and I am satisfied with both. Sue from St. Clair shores, Mi

Very comfortable fit in all areas. I had some problems with the side support and ended up removing the hard plastic stays as they poked me in the sides enough to leave a bruise. Was amazed at how well made the bra was as it was not easy to remove the plastic stays. I have enjoyed wearing this bra once I removed the plastic. It has laundered well.

Liked the bra. Stays on side made it uncomfortable to wear. I have removed the stays and will see how this garment wears. Cathy from Mequon WI

I highly recommend this bra. I read some of the other reviews and yes, I agree the material seems a bit stiff when new, but after a few washings, it is like second skin... SO comfortable!!! It wicks moisture, is extremely supportive, and looks GREAT under clothing. The cups really give you a good shape and it doubles as a sports bra because of the no-bounce. I have other styles of Elila bras, but this one is my favorite for everyday. The quality is superb and worth every penny when you need to be comfortable and look nice! I only wish it came in more colors. Really cannot say enough good things about it. Polly from Boston, MA

Great fit, comfortable, and no ride up. Have had a hard time finding a replacement for a discontinued Goddess style bra and think I have found a wonderful replacement! Renee from Wisconsin

I have worn this style of bra for several years and find it to be comfortable and flattering. I dislike underwire bras (they always poke through within a few months) and this style has proved to be a good alternative. I plan on continuing to wear this style and brand in the future.

If you are short waisted I would not recommend this bra. It seemed to have good support but the bra is so long that it almost reached my belly button.

Elila Response: Elila Bras are full coverage and full support garments and as a brand there are still many styles to add in order to cover many of our different body requirements. We will be working on some bras for women who are short waisted. Thanks for your feedback. R.N. from Norcross

This bra is very close to perfect when I put it on. I looked wonderful, straight up, firm and high, but I was very uncomfortable. The plastic wires rubbed under my arms, so I cut them out. I've lost a little support, but overall I now like this bra alot because it is now more comfortable. I hope the manufacturer will see how wonderful this bra is and fix the comfort problems with the wires. Carol from St. Paul, MN USA

Supportive, but very uncomfortable. The seams under the cups were so thick and hard it felt just like an underwire. CM from New York, NY

Great support, soft matieral, great cup "containment", but the straps seemed to be set too wide and rubbed my shoulder blades/ back raw. Very uncomfortable and painful in this area. I will not be purchasing this particular style again, but will find something different. I find that this web-site is the only place (in my area) I can actually find a bra to fit. Thank you for making my search bearable. R Wells from Wilder, ID, USA

The bra is very well made and supports me quite nicely. I like that the straps are not stretchy to avoid bouncing. The bra breathes which is great. All in all, it is a good bra that I would buy again. I also like your website, it was very easy to use and helpful. Thank you. Audrey from California
