My absolute favorite bra - why is it discontinued? I have found no other bra that fits so well and supports without cutting into my shoulders or causing back pain. I don't understand how such a well reviewed bra is being discontinued. MM from Rochester

This is my absolutely favorite bra. It is my go-to bra for avoiding back pain. I am horribly disappointed that it is no longer available in black. Chris from Kansas

This bra was way too big in the cup, the foam material didn't lie down next to my body. I returned it and selected another bra.

Elomi Response: Barbara- We're so sorry Elomi 1220 in 44D-6 didn't work for you. Tomima's Tips suggest, "This bra runs a little large in the cups. Consider going down a cup size if you are between cup sizes." A key tip to wearing Elomi 1220, "remember to sweep the breast tissue from the side and forward to the clevage. making sure the breast tissue is distributed evenly into the cup!"

Great coverage and support. The girls are up where they need to be! I'm thrilled to be able to purchase quality bras for a very reasonable price. A few years ago, I traveled to a different state JUST to go to Oprah's bra place. Spent a huge sum of $$ on some amazing bras. They are getting a little long in the tooth, but I'm thrilled to have replaced them with yours! (I HIGHLY encourage the bra-fitting walk thru to determine your best bra style!). I did have to return it because I ordered it a band size too big. My fault! I should have gone with what your tutorial said, but I chickened out and ordered a bigger size (habit as a plus-size woman). It was not necessary! Love your whole site! MaryB from South Carolina

I like the foam lining, wish the straps were built up a bit more (straighter line from cleavage to shoulder). Submitted from TheUndies.com

Cup way larger than other Elomi styles. Had to return it.

Elomi Response: Susan, all styles have their own “personality”, so each style can fit slightly differently depending on a number of factors, like frame and fabrication. EL1220 is available from a D2 cup, so it’s easy to go up or down in the cup as much as you need. You might also try Hermione Underwire Bandless Molded Bra EL8120 , a seamless style featuring spacer fabric cups which makes it light as air, and creates a gorgeous natural silhouette.

This is a great t-shirt bra for plus sized women. Don't let the foam fool you. It is minimal and does not make your breasts look ginormous. Submitted from TheUndies.com

UK size too small had to reorder in larger size and still a bit small, but ok. Spilliage from the top of cup. Order in the US size seems to work better.

Elomi Response: Dee- Please consider referring to How to Size a Bra on the "Herroom" website to help determine your correct size. "Herroom" also offers great fit tips to help guide you in choosing the correct bra and size for each style. Elomi 1220 in 34 D-8 might also be a better cup size To ensure you're properly getting into your bra please try the folowing: 1. Stoop: Lean forward from the waist, allowing the breasts to drop into the cups… 2. Swoop: Then, with the opposite hand gently bring the breast tissue forward from the back towards your cleavage… 3. Scooping it in front of, and on top of the under wire into the cup… You might experience some “fluffing” on top of the cups and between the breasts. Take your two forefingers and separate the breast tissue, smoothing it back into the cups. Most important, be sure you breast tissue is resting at the bottom of the cup. Dee from sc

Fit was a little larger than I anticipated, but overall I like it.

Elomi Response: Kelli- It isn't clear what you mean by larger? "Herrom" mentions this bra runs a little large in the cups, so consider going down a cup size to 34D-6, if you are between cup sizes. Another style you may consider for a Petite frame is elomi Hermione Underwire Bandless Molded Bra EL8120 in 34 D-7. Hermione feature seamless spacer fabric cups that give a rounded shape without added volume. Bandless styling with lower center and underarms is perfect for short-waisted women Kelli from Energy, IL USA

Cannot say anything bad! I rate this a 5 because I am 100% pleased! I did not think I could find a seamless bra in my size, without adding extra foam.. This bra lifts and gives a nice shape without having the nip show through! Great with sweaters and t-shirts when you don't want seems! GREAT! alb from Oxnard

I feel like this bra could have worked well (supportive, good coverage, minimal stretch in the straps), but I didn't like the band - it went a little too low, and the sides are 4" tall! I was in it less than 5 minutes and was horribly uncomfortable. The underwire just jabbed into my armpits. Unfortunate.

Elomi Response: Susan- Consider trying elomi Hermione Underwire Bandless Molded Bra EL8120 in 38D-5. This style has seamless spacer fabric cups that give a rounded shape without added volume. Bandless styling with lower center and underarms is perfect for short-waisted women. Susan from Grangeville, Idaho

Horrible bra. It is not comfortable at all. Just the touch of the bra makes me never want to wear it. Also, the bra I received has two different size cups, (which sadly I didn't notice before taking off the tags). I am very unsatisfied. I wouldn't waste money on this style of bra again.

Elomi Response: Rachel, we are so sorry to hear that you are unhappy with this style! Please consider elomi Hermione Underwire Bandless Molded Bra EL8120 in 42D6 or elomi Smoothing Seamfree Underwire Bra EL3911 in 40 D5. Tomima's Tip for EL3911 - "This bra runs large. Everyone should go down a band and cup size (eg: 38G should go to 36G)." Both styles offer great support and uplift. Rachel from Lincoln, NE, USA

I needed a bra to look good under a dress with a low neckline, and sheer front. I'm a big lady, and good bras that actually make clothes look better are hard to find. This one does the trick. marci

I think the band size is a bit snug, but luckily I had an extender on hand. That being said, I was amazed at how well supported things are! Being such a large breast size, you don't expect things to be lifted, perhaps, quite as much as those of a smaller cup size. That being said, this bra really will lift you up! The only problem is that the cut of the top of the bra shows under some of my lower cut shirts. Lisa from Lodi

Expectations met. I own several of this style. I like the molded cup and style of this bra, it keeps me lifted with a nice sleek, even appearance under blouses/sweaters. Tym from White Plains/NewYork/USA

I liked the feel, support, and construction of this bra. I was looking for a bra with a bit thicker lining and less sheer so my nips don't always show through my shirts when I'm cold (!), this bra was just what I was looking for, but it's HUGE. Had to send back and exchange for a smaller size. Order down a size or two from your normal size with this bra!

Elomi Response: Please follow "Tomima's Tip" for Elomi 1220 by going down a cup size. If you are a 46D5 (46FF), we suggest trying a 46D4 (46F). Julie from Oklahoma

Awesome support, better than a sports bra. I can jump in this! My friends were asking me if I got them done! That is the BIGGEST compliment when you have natural BIG breasts. Downside, the wires caused some bruising near the edge of the wire near my armpits. Also, they don't make it in black. Sara from San Jose, CA USA

Awesome support! This bra made my breasts look like implants and that is HUGE when they are natural. The only downside underwires caused bruising near my armpits. Small sacrifice for the awesome fit. Sara from San Jose, CA USA

The cups were too large and the band was too short. I've struck out getting the right bra but I know it's out there. I'm stuck in a DD right now and it's quite uncomfortable but my small "metropolis" doesn't have the right sizes in the stores. I'll keep trying! Dawn from Clarkston, WA USA

The sizing is off on this bra. I have several elomi bras in different styles. They have always fit like a glove. This bra was huge when i put it on. If you want to try this bra I would recommend going done a size or two. Sarah from Richmond/ VA

Each cup fit differently, the fabric was stiff and scratchy, after careful measuring I ordered the suggested size but it was much too large. Overall it felt cheaply constructed. Elizabeth
