I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort and support of this softcup bra. It was a 38 whereas I usually take a 36 and add a half inch extender to the diameter. It gives a smooth line under T-shirts and I only wish it came in white. Lynda from Meridian, Idaho

I absolutely love this bra - it provides the support that 99% of large-breast bras don't. I am petite and have little to no fat on my rib cage, which means I absolutely can not have my bra place the weight on my rib cage. Naturally, the weight is on my shoulders as a result - but it is the lesser of the two evils. That being said, the sizing is somewhat irrational. The band run very small - I normally wear a 32 band and in this bra a 36 fits fine. This is dramatically different from other bras. The cup sizes also appear somewhat irrationally measured, as a 36H has a larger cup size (at least in volume it holds) than the 36I. I'm returning the I and ordering a K to be safe, as the difference was significant. I love this bra but the sizing anomalies make it very difficult to order so I knocked off a star. Shavaun from US

This bra has the most support of any soft cup bra I have ever worn. It is very comfy as well. It did seem to run slightly small on band and cup. Sharon from Bellingham Wa

I have had a terrible time trying to find a bra that was supportive yet comfortable. I can't wear underwires so all the bras I have the ladies were really sagging. I ordered this bra because it was molded. I was amazed and relieved when I got it and it fit perfect and was supportive. I have been wearing it everyday and with regular washings it has held up better than any bra I have ever purchased. I am ordering more the only draw back is that is doesn't come in white and I really think I could use and I but the H holds me in place well enough. I highly recommend this bra.

I found this bra to run true to size. Unfortunately for me, the band was too thick and wide. I have a short torso and it actually went down to my waist. The cups were also too thick and bulky for my taste. It is a very sturdy bra and runs true to size. Laura from San Francisco

LOVED IT! No stupid & unnecessary seams to show through garments. Comfortable fit. Well made. I'm more than happy to pay the high price for this style. Now if you could just offer more colors in my size... Yikes! from Texas

This bra was tight on the band and cup size, I am exchanging for 1 size up on each. I'll submit another review when I receive the new one.

Elila Response: Be sure to go up one band size and down one cup size when you are ordering a different band size. Theresa from VT

I really like this bra and have purchased several over the past 4 years. It offers good support and is complimentary. However, it tends to tear after a time at the seam near the hooks. Sometimes it can be repaired and sometimes it needs to be replaced. So, it's a gamble.

Elila Response: Thank you for letting us know. We double stitch the ends of the hook and eyes to help add support. Wanda from Lanham

Disappointed that this bra did not lift or separate "the girls" as I had expected it to. Will go back to wired bras in the future.

Elila Response: We would suggest you try our Lace Soft-cup Bra 1303 or if you would like an underwire try Full Coverage Stretch Lace Underwire Bra 2311. Fran from Atlanta

I really do like this bra. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the band seems to be a bit tight for a 44. Otherwise it fits nicely. I would recommend it. Chris from Urbandale

Bra is very comfortable. I am 17 and my breasts are very large, so most bras are not comfortable to me. I love this one! Bethany from Portage

I love this bra! I ordered one in 40 G the cups were a bit small but still wearable. I went up to a H and PERFECTION! This bra is one of the best constructed bras I've come across in awhile. Great support! The straps are a good size so no digging. All this with no wires! I wish there were more colors to choose from but I will be trying the Elila with under wire once its available again.

This bra fits me perfectly!!! I went to a custom fitting shop in Jackson, MS and was fitted with this bra. The molded cup is smooth, even under t-shirts. Great support. I have recommended to all of my friends! JUDY from WINNSBORO, LA

This is an ok bra. Supportive, but uncomfortable at the boning. Not that uplifting, for as supportive as it feels. Well made, but slightly overlarge at the sides. Sienna from Utica, Ohio, USA

I have worn this bra every day for a year. It is the only bra that worked for me. Surprisingly, it is still in excellent condition! I only wish it came in a smaller band size as I had to sew the band to make it smaller around. But that worked, and I may have to do the same thing again if I can't find another wireless bra that fits and has good support. Becky from IL

I had to buy a bra without an underwire for work, and frankly, I don't like wearing them. But to be fair, this one has good support throughout the day and is pretty comfortable. my only complaint is that the side supports are long and cut into my sides when I sit down. amy from georgia

This was my second purchase of this same bra. It is a good bra for those with a larger cup size that need more cup support than an underwire or regular style can provide. Well made, the straps don't slip down the arm and lasts through multiple washings and wearings. Cynthia from Benton, AR USA

I did have to take the plastic support pieces out of the sides, but once I did that, this bra is everything I wanted, comfortable, seamless, supportive, and in the color I wanted. Thank you, thank you! I have such a hard time finding a good bra in my size. Denise from Oregon

It's very difficult to order online without having the opportunity to try on a garment. I ordered and sent back 3 times before getting this bra. It's not quite right but, frankly, I'm tired of trying for a perfect style and fit. The wires on this model come up too high and cut into my skin, so I would not recommend it for a short person. I've purchased wire cutters and will try to cut down the wire on the sides. Wish me luck! The cup is larger than other styles and brands, so I should have the next size down to fit better. I'm a bit frustrated that I'm not able to purchase larger size bras at a local department store. It would make life so much easier!

HerRoom Response: We recommend you look at our petite plus-size department where we identify bras that fit petite women better.

Elila Response:If the underarm bone irritates you then take it out, especially if you have a short torso and it is uncomfortable. Side bones stop the garment from stretching too much, but it won’t hurt the overall fit if you remove it. Elaine from Atlanta, GA

This is my second week wearing my new bra and I'm concerned. I've been experiencing some chaffing underneath my armpits. At first it was only on the left, now it's on both sides. I don't know if that's because I just need to break in the new bra or if this is abnormal. I am concerned because even though at the beginning of the day, the bra feels fine, by the end of the day I can't wait to take it off. Is this normal?

Elila Response:If the garment chafes then it is too big. Unfortunately the 1803 doesn’t go to a 34. Also, we all have one side that is bigger than the other. You can try putting a small pad in the smaller cup side and it will help fill in the garment so it won’t rub. Stacy from Hayward, CA USA

This one is a little stiff and the shoulder straps are not as comfortable as I would like. OK if you want a heavily constructed bra with substantial elastic and fabric.

Elila Response:Elila bras are medium to full support garments that are highly constructed so if you are not looking for highly constructed garments then you will not appreciate what you are trying on. MAH from Santa Fe, NM

I went by the size chart from this web site and the bra was huge. Way off with the suggested size. Returned bra and stuck to a bra that I knew.

Elila Response:: We're not sure if you went to HerRoom’s measurement chart or Elila’s so it’s a bit confusing. We suggest a couple different ways to measure your size. Unfortunately it is not an exact science, which is why people must try them on. Elila's band size lengths are consistent throughout the brand which have been established since the 1960’s.
