Elomi Response: Tiger- We're elated that your sister-in-law loves EL1231. So sorry the bustier didn't work for you. Elomi is designed for the full busted and figure customer. EL1231 runs full in the band and we recommend going down a band size. EL1231 is the only style Elomi manfactures in 32 band. For future strapless needs, "please consider the Fantasie Smoothing Seamless Strapless Bra FL4530 in 30 D4." Tomima's tips mention, "The cups run generous in this bra. Consider going down a cup size." Most important, "consider using the HerRoom's Bra Fitting Advice Page to determine your correct band and cup size."

Elomi Response: Becca-
Sorry for your experience with the metal stay. Did your size change since you purchased it?

Elomi Reponse: First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Please consider visiting HerRoom's Bra Fitting Page to help determine your correct size. It sounds like you should possibly go down in the band and cup.
The following 3 steps may also help you when putting your bustier on:
1. Stoop-Lean forward from the waist, allowing the breasts to drop into the cups
2. Scoop-Then, with the opposite hand gently bring the breast tissue forward from the back towards your cleavage
3. Swoop- it in front of, and on top of the under wire into the cup…Take your two forefingers and separate the breast tissue, smoothing it back into the cups.

Your breast size will likely fluctuate if you are losing weight. It's important to be measured again so you can be in the correct size. Luckily, this bra comes in a great range of sizes, so you're sure to find the perfect fit!

Was the bustier too big in the cup or in the bodice? You might want to try another size. The elomi bustier is a great bra in the correct size.

We are so pleased that you love the elomi bustier and that we could help you find the perfect undergarments for your special wedding day. We will pass on the request for nude to the vendor representatives as the feedback from consumers is always helpful.

We have a lot of requests for bustiers in small bands and fuller cups. You might need to try a 32F (D4) or a 30FF (D5) in a bustier depending on how full the elomi was in the bodice. Check HerRoom.com for a style that is available in a 32F (D4) or 32DDD (D3).

If you measure a 32”-band, you’re probably more of a Fantasie or Freya girl. Elomi is a brand for a fuller-figure type.
I know it’s difficult to find a bustier with small bands and full cups! You might want to try a really great-fitting strapless bra (our Fantasie 4530
is a fabulous choice) and then a control garment with a waist that goes up to the bottom of the bra for a super-smooth look.
