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 fourth one I have bought of this item. It is hard to find good,comfortable support in a nursing bra but I have found it here. The material is great under clothes. Nicole from Raleigh,NC

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

Very good. Nice support. Pretty expensive though but at least it's good quality which makes paying a lot a little more worth it. Sara

This bra was not a great fit for me. Unfortunately it seemed big in some areas and smaller in others. I am giving it a 3, however, because I think it has great quality and would work well for someone else with different shaped breasts. I wish it would have worked for me because it is the only underwire nursing bra in my size. I also didn't like the front nursing clasps and my breast tended to get stuck in between the 2 layers (the sling and the cover). Again, it might be due to my heavy breast tissue and shape?

Felt cheap and scratchy. Not true to size--Runs small.

Elomi Response: Perhaps you are in the wrong cup size. Another option for you would be the Beatrice nursing bra 8053 that comes higher than an H cup if you need a fuller cup size. MamaRama

this is THE nursing bra to get. its supportive, comfortable, and invisible under clothes. i bought two other nursing bras from HerRoom and this one blows them both out of the water. it is right on point as far as sizing goes, and is easy to unlatch with one hand. love it!! Jenny from harrisburg PA

Runs big. Other bras in this size are a little small and this one was baggie. The circle sling seems like a good idea. The clip is difficult to undo.

Elomi Response: This bra does run big in the band and the cup. You could try it in a 36D4 or another elomi style called Hermione bra style 8120 that is a great spacer-fabric bra that gives lots of comfort and support. Christina from MD

This is my second one of these bras. The first was a 40GG. It was when I was heavier right after my daughters birth. This bra is very comfortable. The cups are a little snug for me. Whether it is because they are sized small, or just because there wasnt a bigger size to order, I dont know. I started on the snuggest setting, than as I lost weight I went in tighter and tighter. I eventually ordered this one (sizing up to the biggest cup offered for this band size). It fits better, but still a tiny bit snug in the cups. I am not on the tightest band setting yet, so I still have room to wear it as I continue to lose weight. My only complaint with this bra (and every bra ive found in my size) is that there is no lining, so without nursing pads they do have show-through. This is really annoying, but it is no worse than any other bra ive found. I do highly recommend this bra over-all. Emily from US

LOVE this bra!!! Absolutely the most support I've ever gotten from a bra! When I stop nursing I'm going to buy a regular bra from Elomi and see if they also give as much support, but if not I'll buy this bra again. Ive purchased a large variety of nursing bras and have found that I sag, the wires dig in, or point my boobs out toward my arms. This bra does none of those things, its absolutely perfect, and I wouldnt recommend anything else for the large breasted woman! Angela from Kansas City, MO,US

I've always had large breasts and this is the best supportive nursing bra that I've found. I've been so disappointed in other nursing bras because they either don't come in a size large enough or they don't offer any support. I wish this bra came in more colors and that the clasps were a little easier to fasten and unfasten one handed. Maybe they'll get that way after a few more wears. Amy from Oregon

The clasp was not easy to open or close even using both hands. The bra sat high under the arms and I looked very cone shaped. The bra straps were fully extended and I couldn't make the bra sit comfortably low enough to not dig into my sides and underarms. I was very disappointed. Sarah from Mishawaka, Indiana

LOVE this bra! It fit wonderfully, was comfortable, and was very supportive, which is hard to find in this size. The clasps on the front were a little hard to open at first, but got better with time. I actually wore it for a full year and wore it out! Now that I'm done nursing, I'm looking for another Elomi bra because I loved it so much. Kamas from Temecula, CA, USA

This bra is comfortable for me and easy to open for nursing. However, unlike other elomi bras in this size, the underwire in the middle is high and sits out from my chest so baby can't be held to the center of my chest because the underwire pokes her. Might be great for someone taller...

Elomi Response: With your petite frame the 44F hit too high under your arm. Unfortunately there are not a lot of nursing bras in your size other than maybe the elomi Beatrice bra 8053 which you could try. Please be sure you are in the correct size. Erika from upstate ny

this bra seems very supportive, although i haven't delivered yet (i'm 9 months), i wore the bra for 1 full day and the support was great!, the cups do seem a little large, but i anticipate once my milk is in, it will fill the bra in nicely. Most supportive nursing bra i've ever had, and this is my third child, plan to order more jinnah from ypsilanti mi

This is a great nursing bra. I love the support that it gives me. I feel better about myself when I wear it. I have tried other bras and this one is my favorite. The only thing I have trouble with are the clips. I find it a little challenging when nursing. You definitely need two hands to unlatch the clip. Other than that, this is a great product.
