Very comfortable and more support than I thought it would be. Great to wear all day especially under the sheer summer tops. ANNA

Being large breasted, I was hoping to use this as sleepwear. It is not as I envisioned but I will keep it and wear it. Isabelle

I just love this shelf bra camisole. It fits comfortably under almost anything I wear. I recommend it to anyone who has never felt comfortable in a standard bra. Sheila from Houston, Texas

I found the built-in bra uncomfortable (elastic too tight) although the overall fit of the rest of the camisole was OK. Will be returning these for something else. Maureen from Conesus, NY

Runs just a bit small as I am a 36C and this is comfortable in an XL. I own it in black and it has a giant pink logo between the shoulder blades which limits its usefulness. Babs from Central NH

I wear a 36-38, B-C cup (.depending upon style, make, etc) and love this in M. Great support, comfortable, fabulous fabric. Good for moderate exercise or street-wear. Dorothy from Stamford, CT

I don't like this camisole - it's way too short, the band is too tight, and the rest of it is too loose and baggy, and the bottom hem looks like it's about to unravel at any moment. I also just discovered that another store has a much better cotton/spandex shelf bra camisole with stretchy non-adjustable straps, that's a lot more comfortable but less expensive - "Best Fitting Shelf-Bra Camisole" for $8.

Elita Response: We use the best stretch cotton for this group, and it shows in its comfort and longevity. The straps are also non-adjustable and stretchy due to the right amount of spandex incorporated into the Cotton. I can assure that our Quality Control is very accurate in passing only the best quality products sewn. This camisole is one of our nation-wide best sellers in major Department stores across Canada. Not sure what cup size you are, but I would recommend going up a size to compensate the tight band. Our finest cotton products also wash very well. It's fine that there's an $8 Camisole available at the other store you mentioned however, I can guarantee that it will not last as long after a certain amount of washes. Jane from USA

I did not like how it felt and ended up too tight.

Elita Response: I would think the incorrect size was ordered, I would recommend a size L. Joyce from Lancaster, CA. USA

I have been looking for a long time for a camisole like these. I used to buy one at a major retailer, but they stopped selling it. I was very pleased to find this item which is very similar, and better quality. Just love them!!! Sylvia from Salida, Colorado USA

Actually ordered it for my daughter who's 12 in a s/p and fits great. All the girls are wearing tanks these days and I like that his one does not look like a bra strap. michele

Love it - this is the third time I have ordered this item. It is so comfortable and gives me the support I need. It's the only "bra" I wear. Justina from Wilmington, DE USA

Very nice product; nicely made and fits well. Had to return for larger size, but that is a trial and error issue. Nice material, should last a long time. This is a hard to find item. Marilyn from Mosinee, WI

I bought this for my 11 year old daughter who is transitioning to bras but likes the feeling of an undershirt. This is so comfortable for her. it was very hard to find a comfortable shelf-top cami. Thanks! Eileen from Wynnewood, PA

I have been looking for a shelf style cami with wide comfortable shoulder straps. This Cami serves me well with great comfortable support and never cuts into the shoulders! And the price is right, too. Barbara

I accidentally ordered two and was mad at myself until I started wearing them. They are very comfortable and look nice enough to let show in front through an unbuttoned cardigan or something (yoga look). My one complaint is the logo stitched over the label in back. It sort of sticks on my skin and is difficult to ignore. But I would absolutely buy this product again in a different color. Margaret from Eureka, CA

Since I have a very hard time finding bras that fit I use this under clothes in winter and it gives me enough support. Nice that this is made in Canada! Susan from VT

My blouse size is a 16 and I could barely squeeze this item over my head.

Elita Response: Style 4553 is meant to be a fitted camisole (close to the skin). The size chart is correct, and all detailed measurements of this style are listed on the website. A size 16 blouse, as far as I know, should be a size 40 bust or more, if that is the case then this style would be too small. AJ44 from Houston

Good quality cotton & nice support. But cami is a little bulky overall - too much loose material - & non-adjustable straps were too long, causing droopiness.

Elita Response: This size small must be too big for you. You would probably need an x-small which we don't offer. That's the only reason why it would be bulky or the straps would be falling off of you. vtec

First of all, I didn't realize this cami had a shelf bra, so that's my fault. It is uncomfortable over a bra because too many straps around the ribs. It is not supportive enough to wear without a bra for my size. I do like how fitted it is and that it is cotton. I wish the straps were a tad larger to hide bra straps adequately. I need to find a similar cami without the shelf.

Calida Response: Style #4553 does have the shelf bra and would probably be too uncomfortable to wear over another bra. Since it does not have an underwire, it would not be as supportive. Elita does not make a built-up camisole like #4553 without the shelf bra. Nadia from Detroit/MI/USA

I like everything about the Elita camisole, except that on everyone that I have purchased this past winter (5), all have had the seams at the bottom unravel. I even had one re-hemmed ! The cost of that was $12.00, so thought it would be better just to buy new. Wacoal, in the past, made the BEST one, but the style I liked has been discontinued.

Elita Response: Style #4553 is a very fine cotton and sometimes the stitching at the bottom can come loose. This does not happen often and we will be happy to replace it. Sandy from Reno, NV.

The only thing that would make this item better is perhaps a v-neck with a slightly deeper cut. I can't stand any kind of bra and wear this type of undergarment every day. Haven't been able to find it in stores so I was soooooo happy to find it here. Karen from Acushnet, MA

Great fit. So many tanks are too long for me because they're all made to fit over leggings at the moment. This one is the perfect length, hitting at the hip bones, and the straps are just wide enough to hide bra straps, while still looking attractive. The shelf bra adds the perfect thickness so the shirt is not too sheer, even in white. I have shopped and shopped for tanks and this is the best quality and fit for the price. Alexis
