I was worried about buying these bras again, because the information said they only fit B and C cups, and I was afraid they had changed. I am a size 40 only because of a flared rib cage. I need an "A" cup. These still fit me perfectly. Thank goodness, because a 40 A is VERY hard to find. Maybe my flared rib cage takes up the extra cup material? Catherine from Florida

I have been wearing cotton bras by this company for 20+ yrs, the local store stop carrying this brand boo-hoo... it took a while to track down another store/online source. Switching to a non cotton material was a risk for me but, I already bought one and was very very pleased. It is so comfortable, especially in very hot weather! No dampness! marylee from traverse city ,mi usa

Very comfortable every day bra. I have very sensitive skin so the tags are very irritating. Even after I cut them off the spot where they were is scratchy. A tag free bra in this style from Elita would be awesome! Carol from Massachusetts

I have been wearing Silk Magic Crossover Bras for about 10 years now. I love the soft fabric, no clasp, and support the bra offers. Highly recommend. Sue from Ann Arbor, MI USA

I have been buying these bras for many, many years and find them extremely comfortable. However the sizing is inconsistent. Last time I purchased several in size 38 and they were tight. This time (I have stayed the same size) they were bigger in the cup and looser. But I still love them. Diane

This is a great bra for staying home. The most comfortable ever! I wear underwires when I go to work but this is way better for being at home or running to the store, etc. I bought three - black, white and nude and I'm so happy with them! Jane from Portland OR

Nice comfortable casual bra. The bottom band fits on the snug side which is fine with me. It gives a bit nicer shape than other types of pullover bras. kathy from colorado

I loved this bra, exactly what I was looking for - no wires, hooks etc. My only complaint was a line of thread came loose and on me it ran small. I will order a size larger next time. mary from myrtle beach

Love my bra. Fits beautifully but most importantly it is comfortable. I do not feel the need to undress the moment I arrive home. Will definitely reorder. Judy from Utah

This is my favorite bra. The material, the style and the longevity are top-notch. The only thing I would modify would be the band below the cup. The comfort level would be perfect if the band wasn't so tight around the rib cage. MEC from Harrison, AR / USA

I usually wear an under wire bra in 32D. This 34 fit fine. I pulled a muscle under my rib from coughing all winter, and needed something that would not dig into me. This is a winner. I bought another one and two in cotton. Chana from Israel

not a 40 b as stated--relaxed width is 35" and stretched width is 38; that means it is tight and uncomfortable but not as bad as most bras. that's why I rated it a two.

Elita Response:This is Elita #1 style and we have not had fit issues with this style. Marianne (pending) from St. Augustine FL USA

Just like the descrlption says, does not fit A cups. I did not realize when I ordered it!

This is my very favorite bra! I have worn them for years. I am a 36B and find this to be very supportive for every day use, without padding or uncomfortable hardware. It has spoiled me for every other bra! Please be aware: The three colors fit differently, with the white being slightly larger insofar as coverage and the black is just tiny, tight, with a smaller panel for the breasts and shorter straps. It has always been this way since I've been purchasing these for 15 years. If you want black, go up a size. Gen from Lake Forest Park

The Silk Magic Crossover Bra size 36 is extremely comfortable and the crossover design prevents the 'uniboob' look. This is not a compression fit bra. There is no adjustment to the shoulder straps, so for me with a shorter than average torso the 'lift' is not there ... which is AOK for weekends under t-shirts, relaxing evenings, driving long distances etc. I am a 'C' cup and the fit is similar to the model however my left breast, a 'C+', protrudes more than pictured in the model but no 'fallout' experienced. I first wore this bra style back in the 80's in all cotton. I like the silk version with the extra amount of lycra. Maria from Raleigh

This bra is simple, comfortable, and I especially like that the straps don't fall down off my shoulders. It is a nice everyday bra. Joanne

I used to love this bra, i think i purchased it about one year ago. I wear a 40B, which is a hard size to find. The one i got before was great to wear on days off or for certain work out classes. The new one i got this year in 2011 was cut much bigger around, and in the cup size, its more like a C cup. The fabric on the back of the bra was increased by about 2 inches so its not as flattering as it was before. I returned it. I would say to give it a chance and order down a full size around.

Elita Response:This has been Elita #1 style for many years and we have not changed the style or manufacturing of it in any way. Unless this got mis marked, I don't know why this one would not fit like the ones you ordered in the past. soft bra lover from portland, or, usa

I have always ordered this bra in cotton in the past and since there is no Elita beige cotton bra, I ordered this bra. It feels great next to my skin and I would highly recommend it. Becky from Sarasota, FL USA

I love this bra. It offers little or no support, but it is so comfy. As long as I am just hanging around the house with my family it is fine. I can't stress enough how comfortable it is. Tricia from New Orleans, LA

I love this bra! The 36 in white fit perfectly. However, in black, the 36 was too tight and the 38 is a little big.

elita Response: Maybe the 36 in black was mis-marked, because we use the same pattern for both colors. Nancy from Chicago/Illinois/USA

This bra is very comfortable. I have MS and am not able to hook closures on a bra, so this pull-over-the head style is perfect. I can wear this bra all day without pulling or tugging. Great find! Lynda from Georgetown, TX USA

I love this bra - material is really nice. My only problem is that one of the two I ordered - although same size and style - was so much smaller it was uncomfortable. I wonder if there is a quality control problem.

Elita Response:The second bra that you received that was smaller may have been mis-marked. We would recommend returning this item and exchanging it for another one. Susan from New Haven, CT
