This bra fits pretty true to size. I have been wearing a regular 34H elomi while pregnant, which had a little room left in the cup. Now with 2 weeks to go, this bra fits pretty much the same, though I could have gone down a size in the band, which is surprising as my regular elomi has been feeling tight. Maybe the nursing bra is more flexible. Not sure if this bra will fit when my milk comes in, but once my milk production levels out, it should be okay. It fits very well for any kind of bra, not just a nursing bra, which I find tend not to offer much support. This is very supportive and provides nice shape. Jessica from Canada

Although I like this bra the main reason I chose this particular one was because it was supposed to be molded. I don't like flimsy bras which this one is. The description should state which sizes do NOT come molded. That would be helpful! Brenna from Michigan

Great support BUT... The clasp design makes nursing discreetly in public really hard. Also the underwire comes too far up the front and pokes out... Thus, I can not hold my baby on my chest without the underwire stabbing her. Obviously, with looking at the other reviews, it works for some but NOT me. :( Kelley from MN

Really truly great support but I have two problems...Their clasps make nursing discreetly in public very difficult as you need two hands just to undo the clip and to refasten it. The one thing that bothers me, the most, is the under wire comes up too far in the front/middle causing the wire to tilt out away from the body (a little in the armpits as well). If I am wearing this bra I cannot cuddle my baby on my chest. That's a deal breaker for me to be able to recommend this bra... Might work for other body sizes but not mine. (Size 40 FF, 5' 4" tall) If only the underwire was an inch shorter!!! :(

Elomi Response: Kelly- Thank you for your feedback on EL3912 Nursing bra. Due to your height, the full underwire sweep might be too tall for your frame or you may be wearing the wrong size cup. Another great Elomi nursing bra that is wire free is, Beatrice Soft Cup Nursing Bra EL8053 in 40 D-5. This style offers great support, the cup lining is a very soft cotton/modal mix, with enclosed seams. The one-handed squeeze release clasp should become more user friendly after being used a few times. Please consider referring to the Bra Fitting Advice Page to help determine if you're correct band and cups size. Due to changes in our bodies after giving birth, your size may have changed dramatically! Kelley from Minnesota

Good support and shaping. The clasps are a bit difficult to work with one hand, but otherwise I'm very happy with this bra. Celina

Not crazy about the fit on this one. Double layer cups show under my clothes and the hooks are difficult to use with one hand. Michele from Easton PA USA

Not sure about this yet. I am big busted and had a hard time finding a larger bra after getting pregnant. I purchased two of these in a larger size in hopes that they will last through the end of my pregnancy and through nursing. I am having a difficult time with the fit, possibly because they are bigger even though I am able to make due with the cup size the overall fit just doesn't sit right. Although it is nice to have an actual bra again, hoping though that it will become a little more comfortable as I grow into it. Hard to size yourself online when you are not the size you use to be and know you will get bigger. Kelly from Southern California

I bought this bra just before the birth of my first daughter, when I first got it I needed an expander but within 2 weeks was able to wear the bra on its own without the expander. I have been very happy with it, it fits well, and provides good coverage. The clasp for nursing could be easier to open and close, this is definitely not a one handed maneuver. I have treated this bra delicately the same as I have all my bras, however I have become displeased with this bra because unlike all my others which have lasted multiple years of near daily use, today I noticed that this bra after only 4 months of use is coming apart and will no longer be wearable. The stitching is coming apart where the straps connect the the rings to hold the cup up. I am very disappointed and had expected much better from this brand. Halee from Arkansas

For my first pregnancy, I used regular discount store maternity bras. Worst mistake of my breastfeeding life. Having large breasts gives enough trouble when producing milk and feeding a baby. Having the wrong bra made it even worse for me since they didn't support my breasts properly. The wrong support cut off my ducts and caused massive amounts of blockages and I found myself running dry on breast milk in a couple of months. With my second pregnancy I bought this bra. BEST DECISION EVER! I had the best support, they were comfortable, they fit nicely under most tops. They may be a little hard to get the breast back in with the fabric just right, but they are worth the hassle. I agree I with others I would prefer an easier clip, but the extra room in the cups is essential when your milk comes in and changes frequently. I recommend these bras for anyone breastfeeding. Doubly so if you are "heavy" breasted like me. Flourette from Christiansburg/VA/USA

It's hard to find a nursing bra with a flattering fit in my cup size, and this bra did it. The cup sizes run big. I was afraid I wouldn't find the bra flattering, because I looked much wider than I needed to in the H (my normal size). After ordering the bra in a GG and a G as well, I decided to go with the G (which even has a little extra room in it) I'm giving this bra 4 stars instead of 5 because the shape is not quite as perfect as I get from my non-nursing bras... although I'd give the elomi nursing bra 4.5 stars if that were an option. I wish this bra came in black too! Katie from Boston, MA

I love this bra. I'm currently breast feeding and this bra gives me the support I need. I tried the Elomi (non-molded) nursing bra and didn't like it at all, but this molded bra gives me much more support. Carla from San Francisco

This is the best of what I've tried so far. Last time I breastfed I used the Bravado Supreme, which I loved and which they no longer make. I've tried the Bravado Sublime, Goddess Keira Nursing Bra, a Freya bra and two Panache bras, and none of them had the support and the natural shaping of this bra. I love the rounded, uplifted look and the wideness of the underwires. There's no way it's going to pinch breast tissue all the way back there. The cups do run a little big, but at almost eight months pregnant, I know that I'll be glad of the extra room when my milk comes in. Besides, it's nice not to have a network of seams showing through those super thin knit shirts they sell these days. While I'm not a fan of the circle-shaped sling piece under the cup (I generally hate this kind of style, it makes it a lot harder to get the girls back in place and the bra laying smoothly after nursing), this one is nicer than most. The only real drawback as far as I can see is the horrible clasps which are very stiff and difficult to do and undo. I realize that they lay flatter under clothes (which is probably the reasoning for using them) but they are awful to use. I hope the company eventually switches to another clasp style. Overall, though, a really nice bra and I recommend it. Kelly from New York

Best I've found in this size. It's a little snug, probably should have tried a size bigger to compare, but that's difficult with online purchase. Worth the money. Clips a little difficult, and i wish material in cups was thicker, but still my favorite of the four nursing bras I've purchased. Christina from Ohio

Great fit, I am expecting my son in April so am ordering up in size to prepare for milk coming in...the first size I ordered by the website's calculation + 1 cup size was way too big, both in cup and band. So I exchanged for the 36DD (current size) and it still has a little wrinkle and room to grow. I think it will be perfect. LOVE the straps and extra sizing on band. Do wish it had a little more padding but the material seems like it will cover ok. Gives very nice shape...I feel normal wearing it which is exactly what I was hoping for after AWEFUL cheep nursing bras with my first child. Michelle from Arlington/Texas/USA

This is the first maternity bra that has fit me. Hallelujah! It is smooth under thinner tops (might show slight nipple impression occasionally). The fabric has some give, but is overall rather firm (which is great for real support). Four snaps in the back, for changing waist size is nice. A solid bra, I might buy more. One warning, it is 150% coverage. This is not a bra for summer, it shows with every single tank top, V-neck, and dress. Every single one, I am not talking skimpy spaghetti straps either. So plan accordingly. cdubs from chicago

I have had to "upsize" three times since finding out I was pregnant. Finding a good suppportive bra in a 38 FF is tough but this bra is great. I ordered another one. It is not only supportive, it is as comfortable as a bra can be when your boobs are three times bigger than normal! Although I haven't had my little boy yet, the snaps on the top will make nursing and pump much easier. Lisa

After countless returns and constant searching for a smooth nursing bra with a smaller band size & larger cup size I was so pleased to find this one. The only drawbacks to this style is that H is the largest cup size available and the underwires do rub a little on the top of my baby bump. Kristen from Indianapolis

Love this bra! Super supportive, gives good shape by keeping the breasts separated without making them pointy. I have tried a LOT of nursing bras and this quickly became my favorite. The only downside is that the fabric is a little stiff, but that helps with the support, as does the internal structure of the cups. I generally prefer cups that drop down completely, but the better support makes the fact that these don't a non-issue. This bra runs large in both the band and the cup. so shop accordingly. I'm a 34I in Anita nursing bras, and ended up with 34G in these. I probably could go down in the band since I'm already on the tightest hooks, but I didn't want to go without any longer, so I kept the 34. I highly recommend this bra! Becca

*sigh. I ordered this and another bra (Anita) both in a 36H. This one was good in the band size but huge in the cup, (the Anita was too small in both band and cup). I am exchanging this for a 36G, and of course it's now in backorder. Frustrating. Heidi from Minnesota

This is the best nursing bra for support I have found. I like it so much, I may continue wearing it after nursing. It has no extra padding, but still gives great support. The underwire is very comfy. I have a different bra I wear at night, but I needed something for day that I could wear under clothes & still have some shape. I have large breasts & most nursing bras made me look horrible in clothes, not this one, great for going out or working. Only thing that would make it better is having the nursing hook be easier to undo especially with one hand, but it is managable! mp535 from Raleigh, NC

I just had my 6th baby, and this nursing bra is fantastic! Probably the best I have ever had. No wierd shapes or uniboobs or anything. It is very supportive, has soft comfortable material, and is easy to clasp and unclasp. The shoulder straps don't move either. Veronica from Louisiana

It is nice to find a bra that fits my size as it seems the area I live believes everyone is one small size when you have a child. The only complaint I do have is by the end of the day it feels a bit scratchy. Also it seems my breast look a bit cone like in it. Overall it fits and does the job I need it too. I will probably order a few others types to compare. Brandy from Iowa
