Beautiful bra, cup size was too large for me. I'm ordering it again. Amanda from Mchenry il. USA
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
It is more than I expected. Comfortable. The only drawback is getting it on by myself, one needs a "dresser". Carolyn from Friday Harbor WA
