I really liked the idea of side support because I have quite full breasts. I usually wear about a 34G, but since I wanted to try the side-support, I went up in band and down in cup from what I normally wear, due to the offerings in this bra. The cups seem just a LITTLE too small, mostly across the top of the cup. Wish they offered a 34 band! I'm hesitant to purchase the same band size in a larger cup, though it is tempting because it feels so well-supportive and looks pretty.

Elomi Response: Rachel, side support is a beautiful thing! The side support panel encourages the breast tissue forward, so as not to get that “East-West” look which only serves to widen the torso. It does sound as though you really do need the 34- band to give you that ultimate lift and support. The great news is that Elomi makes several bras which come in 34- bands. You could try Elomi 8001, the band-less “sister style” to El8000: This style is cut slightly lower under the arms and at the center front –plunging and sexy! I’d also recommend you try one of our all-time favorites Caitlyn 8030 . You’ll feel super-glamorous in Caitlyn which features a side support panel and a sheer embroidered top cup. The fabrication is “satin rich” for a luxurious feel, and it comes in a new fashion color every season. If you feel the cup is slightly small in a 36E, I’d try a 34FF in both Caitlyn and EL8001. This will give you the extra cup size you need with the support of a 34- band. I know you’ll fall in love with these bras! Rachel from North Carolina, US

I would give this a 5-star, but have yet to find anything perfect in life. But this bra comes pretty darn close. The fit around my trunk is perfect, doesnt pinch or cut in to the skin. The straps lay right, the cups fit perfect. I don't like the "bunch them in your face" bra and this fits the bill: Lifts & Separates perfectly. I recommend giving this bra a try if you are larger in the shoulder. I have tried 12 bras so far and this one I am keeping. Tammy B from Seattle area

This is my first of many elomi. Excellent fit and support. Comfortable all day. Matching panties look great together. The set is a definite must-have. Brenda from Indianapolis, IN 46234

Only bra we've found that provides the full coverage and lift my daughter wanted (underwire is a little high under the arms but the 8001 style with less wire there was also described as a plunge in front) mom of teen

This is such a pretty bra! I tried it on at the store and loved the way it fit and the femininity it gave me ;) The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because I can't wear this without my nipples poking through. It's not lined enough and I would have to wear something else over me (under the bra) to not show through. Jen from Ann Arbo, MI, USA

Love it! Love it! Love it! This is my second order. Excellent support, the cups are deep enough that the bra lays against my body instead of being held away. And "the girls" are out front (not under my armpits), up and proud! Thank you! Brenda from Asheville, NC USA

I think this is a well made bra. It is not as comfortable for me as my jeunique bra, but this is the first underwire bra I have worn in 10 years and its pretty comfortable and holds the girls in well. Felicia from Washington, DC

This is my second time round for the elomi Cleo, and it's a GREAT bra for an ample bosom - much like the rest of the elomi line. The Cleo side supports avert my potential "side sag." The fabric is smooth enough to go under knits (despite cup seaming). The bra is sturdy and wears well (I'm replacing my old one because of weight loss :-) ). And I love the new tulip color - hooray for non-staid colors and styles for larger cup sizes! Beth from Normal, IL

This is the best fitting, most comfortable and supportive bra I've ever owned. The girls are up where they're supposed to be. The support comes from the exceptionally comfortable band and underwire, not from the straps, so there's no neck- or shoulder-ache at the end of the day. The underwires never budge from where they're supposed to be. This bra is worth every penny and I don't think I'll ever buy another brand. GREAT BRA :) Martha from Wine Country, California

Love this bra. Being a full figure woman, this bra really fits. The bra I purchased was a little big( never happened before), so I would go down a cup size than you are used to ordering. Otherwise, it is a lovely bra, holds well, and is comfortable. F. from Washington, DC USA

There was nothing wrong with this bra it just wasn't the right fit for me as with other Elomi bras. The biggest problem for me was the length of the underwire under the arm. I'm short-waisted and the wires poked into my armpits. Plus I had trouble (for some reason) keeping the "extra" breast tissue under my arms inside the cups. I also tried the Cleo 8001 style and absolutely love it (have it on right now!). Lynda from United States

Comfortable bra, but a tad "granny-esque" for a 26 year old. Very high-cut cups and wires, so this is certainly a no-go for lower-cut tops. Linds from Chandler, AZ

I don't have a back problem wearing this bra anymore and the fit is great but the underwire does start hurting underneath when the straps loosen up and is uncomfortable to lay down with. The coverage is great but you will notice the heavy wiring there.

Elomi Response: Very often we find that back problems are very much lessened –or disappear altogether –when we wear a bra that truly supports the breasts, taking the strain off the spine and the muscles surrounding it! If you’re finding the wires a bit too much for you, you might want to try Abi (#8100), a brand new bra in our Elomi collection. Abi is bandless (great if you’re short-waisted) and features a lighter, more flexible under-wire. The seams are flat so it’s virtually seamless under snug fitting tops. Gifted from Chicago, IL

I did not like the way this bra fit. It didn't feel like there was enough lining in the cups for that extra support.

Elomi Response: Melanie, this bra should provide plenty of support for your 38FF frame. The fabrication of #8000 might not be thick, but it is extremely rigid providing very firm support. The seams help to lift and shape the breasts. However, none of these features can do the job if the size is not correct: It might be that you’re simply not ordering the right size.

This is the best bra I have ever worn! I have four of these in different colors. I also own multiple colors of several other Elomi bra styles, and each of them is superb in every way. This is the only brand of bra I will ever buy from here on out! Cat from Michigan

It is a quality item. Made very well and oh so pretty. I have never felt so attractive at this size. I ordered one in black and one in beige. The beige was back ordered but arrived 14 days before they estimated. Just in time for my vacation.Thank you so much. DeEtte from Rochester,NY

All I can say is WOW! I just received my 3rd set of these amazing bras. They are pretty, supportive, and did I say pretty??? The underwire is very strong, but amazingly comfortable. It fits like it should! Snug to the breastbone and everything's in the right place! It took me a couple tries to get the sizing right, but if you hang in there, you will be soooo pleased!

This was my first foray into a bra that was not Panache. I liked the fit of the bra and it held the girls in just the right place! The underwires were not poking me under the arms and everything was where it ought to be. I am also covered where I want to be covered. I'm very pleased with this bra and I would purchase another.

I haven't been able to say 'I love my bra' in about 10 years. I finally can say I love this bra and bought six of them! I was on the fence about spending this much, but it is worth every single penny. Elomi got it right, this style lifts in ways I never thought possible and in ways my $30 bras never could. I feel so much BETTER in this bra, it is wonderful. I wish I had taken the plunge sooner with this, as I am very, very happy. These bras are perfect for larger sizes. Amy from Hyde Park, NY

It fits, but I am returning it because it separates breasts too much, pushes breasts outward more than I like. It is a full 1" at center where under-wire meets. This bra also rides very high in the front, most of my scoop-neck tops are too low. SoCalGal from San Diego, CA, USA

This is one of the first bra's I have found that gives me support all over. The side support is great and I feel very secure.I am 5'3 and I have had no problems with the underwire poking me from the side support. I will be getting all colors that are available. I think Herroom should get more Elomi styles for bigger busted women.

HerRoom Response: We carry pretty much every Elomi style offered. tracey from MI

I used the sites advice on measuring and fit, and received the 1st one, and the cups were too big. Sent it back and went down a size but there is still wrinkles in the cup.

Elomi Response: Casey, you may have to go down yet another cup or even a band size, but very often you’ll find wrinkling when you haven’t placed all of the breast tissue in the cups. Make sure you’re bringing the breast tissue forward (from the back to the front) into the cups. Paying attention to these details can make all the difference in how a bra fits.

Love, love, love the shoulder straps, however, don't like the pointing on the sides. The photo made the breast look rounded, tucked in on the sides, but it doesn't fit like that once you wear it. Also, even though I'm a 40f, I believe I would need to go down one size.

Elomi Response: Your reference to 'pointing on the sides' leads me to believe that perhaps you didn’t order the correct size. Also, as always it’s so important to swoop and scoop the breasts into the cups properly (making sure the under-wire surrounds the breast tissue and “tacks” on the rib cage between the breasts, and sits behind the breast tissue on bone). When all of the breast tissue is contained in the cup, and the band is snug around the torso, the shape of this bra is lifted and rounded. Tracey from Philadelphia

This is my favourite bra. I am short through the body I needed a bra that kept my me from spilling out the sides without poking me in the armpit. This bra does the trick. It makes me look slimmer and perkier. It's beautifully made and fits perfectly. I worried about the stretchy straps but they provide plenty of support. Jessie from Ontario
