The cup size worked for me but what didn't was the bowed boning. It was so flimsy! Very unhappy, I will be returning this item. If a company is making a large breasted cup, they boning should be able to hold its shape and this was a complete joke.

Elomi Response: Megan How unfortunate that Elomi EL1231 bustier in 42 D5 didn't work for you. Tomima's Tips suggest, "If you have a tummy, we suggest purchasing the bra extender Va Bien Bra Extender 104 to help give you your perfect fit OR going up one band size and down a cup size (e.g. 34F would try a 36E.

First I tried this on in a 36G. My normal size is a 38G. The cups were HUGE!!! The band was also quite large on me, so I returned it and ordered a 34E and a 34F. I should have read the sizing info because Elomi's sizing is way different than what I'm used to. I haven't gotten the 34F in yet but i did get the 34E today and the cups are a little small but they make my boobs very pointy shaped! Not natural looking at all.

Elomi Response: Kira Buying a bustier or strapless can be a daunting task. Herroom gives excellant guidance in choosing the correct size in all the vendors they offer. Sizing does vary between each vendors. In the future, may I suggest consulting the Bra Fitting Advice Page on the Herroom website. This will guide you through the steps to help determine your correct band & cup size in each vendor Herroom carries. This is an awesome tool and very helpful. Another option to consider, is in our Freya line. Freya caters to the full busted average customer and now offers the new Freya Deco Shape Underwire Contour Longline Bra AA1462. Tomima's Tips and Details for AA1462 are very helpful in determining your size for this bustier. Kira from Denton, TX

I normally wear a 32G in Natori, so I chose the 32F based on suggestions that the cup runs big, but I hadn't realized that the band runs big, too! I was swimming in it. It's too bad because the boning and coverage are exactly what I'm looking for in a bustier. If only it came in a smaller size, I'd be buying several!

Elomi Response: Melissa Thank you for your feedback on our Elomi EL1231 bustier and we're sorry it didn't work for your petite frame. Elomi is for the full busted voluptuous women. Our Freya line, which caters to the full busted average customer has a new Freya Deco Shape Underwire Contour Longline Bra AA1462 . This just might be what you're looking for.

I've always dreaded bustiers and "shapewear" because it's never comfortable, but I'm getting married soon, and you kind of have to wear some kind of foundation garment under a wedding dress. So I chose this one, and it just might just have me changing my tune. I'm shocked by how comfortable this is. I don't know that I could wear it every single day, but I know I'll be able to get through my wedding, no sweat. It doesn't bind, doesn't roll or pinch. It holds me in and gives me shape and I can still breathe! It really is a great shaping garment, and is going to do the trick nicely. I'm so happy I chose this bustier!! Melissa from Bock

Quality of this item was great. Ran big as others have said. I wear a 30 FF in Freya and a 34DD in Victoria's Secret. I ordered a 32 F and ended up giving it to the bride who wears a 36 D. The waist band was at least 4 inches too big. Very pretty, my sister in law to be loves it but I couldn't wear it.

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." Tiger from Orange County California

Amazing! Have been looking for a decent strapless support forever, as I am quite curvy and large busted. After trying strapless bras of every brand, I believe I have found my solution in this bustier. It is smooth (no lace) so is minimally noticable under white tshirts/camis and thinner knits. The support is fantastic, holding the girls up without making them pointy as my Goddess strapless does. I followed the sizing instructions and the band and cups fit perfectly. It is snug but not tight and for once I don't feel like I need to keep "hitching up" my bra to get the support I need. Will buy again!! Aloha_grrl from Kansas City, MO USA

When I received this item and tried it on I was pleased. It fit well and was very supportive. However, I purchased it for an event and so I didn't wear it until about 2 1/2 months after receiving it. The first and only time I wore it one of the metal stays popped out of the fabric and I spent the rest of the evening being stabbed in the breast by it. Very uncomfortable! And because it was past the 30 day return policy there was nothing I could do about it. $75 down the drain. Definitely will avoid this brand from now on.

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

This is a great product. It did not fit as snug as I had hoped for but it still fit pretty good. I ordered the 40E and it fit snug, perfect under my wedding dress. For those ordering to wear under wedding attire don't be concerned that nude is not available it was unnoticeable under my low cut sweetheart neckline dress. Emily

Frustrating. I am buying a longline bra for under my wedding gown. I originally bought the 42 G on the advice of the online salesperson and had it rushed since I needed it for dress shopping. I had the bra sent to the midwest as I was on vacation there and needed it for trying on dresses with my mother in law. When it arrived, late, it was way too big in the band and in the cup, so I sent it back for the 40G, and asked that the new one be sent to California where I live. However, it was sent again to the mid-west, having needed to be re-mailed by my mother in law. Now, the new one is still so big in the cup that my breasts do not completely fill it out, and it crumples when you poke the tips of the cups. The band feels pretty good, but could be a bit snugger and would still feel fine. I need to send this one back and try another bra, which is very frustrating as I cannot get my gown fitted since I do not have a proper bra, and have had to keep canceling appointments both in the midwest and now California. Has any one else found that the molded cups are strangely shaped and too large for their boobs?

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. kd from Oakland, CA

I ordered according to the reviews but found it to be too small in the cups and band. I normally wear a 42 DDD. Will exchange as I am deciding between this and the Glamorise which fit great but shows a bit above my gown. Quality of this bra was nice. Jill from New Hampshire

Only place I could find a strapless bra for a wedding I was in. It was comfortable to wear all day. I also have to commend you on the customer service I received. I ordered the bra and it felt a little loose. I contacted customer service and they shipped another size immediately and reassured me about sending back the first ordered bra to receive my refund. I really look forward to ordering from this site in the future because of the impressive customer service. Jami from Emmaus, PA USA

This is the second time I have had to sent this item back for a new size. To be fair, I have been loosing some wight lately, so its difficult to know where I fall size wise, not entirely anyone's fault, but still no fun.

HerRoom Response: 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! Sharon from Slemson/SC/USA

I wear a 34GG normally, and I thought to order smaller with this for the support. Even being one size smaller, it was way too big. The boning was bulging and it had tons of extra fabric. The cup size was fantastic, if only they would make one smaller in the middle! Amber from Greenland, NH US

I have never in my life owned a strapless bra...or a bustier for that matter. I was shocked at the effect this garment had on my figure. I'm a plus-sized person and the extra weight definitely makes it more difficult, but I do believe a product like this will allow me a freedom I've never had before. When I tried the garment on with a halter top, I was shocked to say that the garment gave me shape and made me look phenomenal. I bought the garment to wear under several strapless dresses.

The bustier is beautiful, and I'm a huge Elomi fan, but the area allowed for my ribs is too generous. Afraid if I go down to a 34 the cups will be too loose. It seems unlikely that I'll find a supportive, comfortable bustier in my size (wasn't looking for a wedding, but for semi-regular special occasion wear), but this is certainly the closest I've come!

I usually wear 34GG fantasie bra. I ordered 34GG, 34G, and 36G elomi because i was trying to find a good fitted strapless bra for my wedding. Turned out elomi sizing is different from fantasie. I've gained some weight since I've bought my 34GG fantasie, thats why i tried ordering 36G as well, I've been wearing my fantasie bra at last hook (largest) because of weight gain. Yet elomi was too big for me. I ended up exchange them and got 32GG. The 32GG fits me great in the smallest hook setting (so that i have room, in case i gain more weight by wedding day, i got 2 more hooks setup to grow into). Hopefully this helps you in finding your size for this bra. I am usually no where close to 32, more like 34-36, yet in elomi I'm on smallest setting of 32. I'm so glad that I found this bra because the Bridal shop wanted to force me into 38DD which is totally not my size C from OH, USA

I ordered the size that the customer service agent suggested but when it came in, I tried it on and I believe that it was a little to big. When I tried it on with my wedding dress but it didn't work with my dress. So I'm going to have to return it.

Elomi Response: 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. Heidi from Tucson, AZ

I am 5'3", short-wasted, apple-shaped, and normally wear a 40DD bra. This bustier beat out the Goddess to be worn on my wedding day. It's more comfortable, smoother and much better hidden under the dress. It also gives the girls a gorgeous, rounded shape. My one and only complaint is that it doesn't come in nude. Why do so many lingerie manufacturers decide that plus-size women don't deserve the option to wear skin tone? It's weird. This shade of ivory is pretty, but my dress only has one layer of silk and one layer of lace, so I might try to dye the bustier to make sure it doesn't show through. Sizing down the band was perfect. Sticking with a DD works for me; there's a little bit of wiggle room, so you could make the case for a D, but I still have plenty of uplift and a nice shape.

Elomi Response: 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. Liz from Watertown, MA, USA

I ordered this item for my daughter who is normally a 34DDD/34E The cup size was a good fit but the bodice was at least 1 size to big possibly 2 sizes to big. Had to return because the item does not come smaller that 34.

Elomi Response: 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). Lynn from Lunenburg, VT

This is a great longline bra--I struggled to find one that is plain and will disappear under my wedding dress. The bodice is smooth and very comfortable, and the cups fit true to size. However the size 32 band (my normal size) was way too large, it fit more like a 34 or a 36. If you wear a 32 and are willing to get this tailored, I would recommend it; otherwise it will be too large. I had to return it. Margaret

I felt so beautiful and supported in this bra. Although I am technically petite at 5'3", I have the torso length of someone 5'8". I carry all my weight in breasts and belly. I ordered this bra in a 36 and 38 because I was worried about the waist closure over my pot belly. However, the 36 was still able to work great for me so the 38 was returned. I was incredibly happy and surprised to find a long line bra/bustier that could adequately support me without slippage. My breasts were held up and cradled without being squished. I felt like a princess in this bra and it was so nice to have my back fat all smoothed out. I did have to bring the optional straps in a little as they were set slightly too wide for me. But the bra still works very well with no straps. I felt svelter and smaller as if all the flesh was molded to where it should be. I think that this bra along with a good girdle is an instant confidence booster. It was comfortable and elegant in the ivory satin. Dawn from Longview, Texas
