Finally !! after 30+ years of looking, I found a bra that is supportive and comfortable. This bra is fantastic - and is beautiful to look at. The center lays as it should and there is no bulge around the arms. My girls have not looked this perky in years. Will be ordering more. Sandy from mansfield, ohio, usa

Fit perfectly; great support. Ordered another one, as it's one of the best, most supportive bras I've worn, especially as I've gotten into larger sizes. Kate from Cincinnati

Unfortunately, I had to return this bra. I purchased this bra basically guessing on my correct size. I normally wear a size 38 DDD which is somewhat fine however I still experience top and bottom spillage which is the reason I opted for the 38F. I have extremely large ample breasts and most of my problems with bras have been with the cup sizes. Most bra cups are too small and not full enough for my breasts. However, this bra should have great support for a plus size person who don't have ample breasts. I returned this bra in exchange for one of the Goddess bras in yet a larger cup size. I will let you know how this works out.

Elomi Response: You are on the right track, going up in the cup size to find the perfect fit. This style goes up to an H-cup, three cup sizes larger than you ordered (we have styles that go to JJ cups!) It bears repeating these Three Points of Fit:

The band must be snug around the body (like a hug) and be tight enough to stay parallel to the floor and not ride up the back

The center gore should “tack” between the breasts (be right up against the rib cage)

The under-wire should surround the entire breast and sit behind the breast tissue on bone If all these things are happening, the bra should be a perfect fit. Usually we find we get a better, almost custom fit if we go down in the band and up in the cup. Don’t be afraid to go up in the cup! Please don’t give up, I’m sure with a little patience and perseverance, you’ll find the perfect bra! DiDi from Baltimore, MD

For years, even with ups and downs in my body weight, I've had a generous chest. The challenge has always been to find a non-granny bra in a large cup size. Well, with this Elomi bra, I've found it! I LOVE not only the way it lifts me, but the shaping - a little more to the front, instead of flowing out to the sides, like other large cup bras. I originally got the lighter color and was so pleased, I ordered the black one, too. Oh, and the flowery lace detail is exquisite! Lee from Apple Valley, MN

This bra is wonderful! The side support is great and the underwire fits comfortably against the body. The uplift makes the girls look years younger! Love this bra! Submitted from TheUndies.com

I was really excited to find a bra other than my "usuals" in my size. Unfortunately, this one just didn't work and I'm returning it. The cups fit well, but the outer seamed portion bulged out giving off a very bizarre look - like my girls were trying to escape out the side of the bra. The lift it gave was nice, but the seams just didn't work for me. Off to order a different style...

elomi Response: Sorry to hear #8000 wasn’t right for you. If the seams bulge out it’s usually a sign that the cup is either too small or too big. You might want to try elomi 8001 in the Cleo collection. This bra offers less coverage with a lower center gore and a totally different frame. You might also want to try elomi Caitlyn 8030 - a favorite with most of our customers. Don’t give up Karen, there are beautiful bras out there for you! karen from willoughby, ohio

I really liked this bra. It made me look smaller! It was very supportive. My boobs are heavy and this bra pulled me in nicely. I wish they would make it in a size larger because it is a little too small for me. Also it gave me slightly pointy boobs. And I don't understand why bra makers can't make the shoulder straps have some kind of extra padding because after a few hours my shoulders were hurting and bright red. Misty from California

Makes me look so much thinner by giving great lift. Since starting to wear this bra. people often ask me if I've lost a lot of weight, and I say, "No, it;s the new bra". Pretty and comfortable. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I had really high expectations for this bra. Unfortunately, it was a disappointment. The underwire pokes into my armpits; there is too much nipple room and my girls are excessively far apart. It makes me look bigger and older. I will be retuning this product.

Elomi Response: It could be that this style is not the best shape for you… Sounds like you need LESS bra… I’d suggest our Elomi 8001: It’s 2 inches lower at the center front and underarm –it’s a gorgeous sexy bra too, and it will make you feel young! Ahmad from Kennesaw, Ga

It had a nice feel to it but the cups weren't large enough for my breasts.

HerRoom Response: You may not know this, but many manufacturers call your cup size by other letters. For instance, some manufacturers refer to a DD as an E cup, a DDD as an F cup and so on. If you need help deciphering what your cup size is, please see our size conversion chart, which lists each brand's cup sizing guidelines. Alicia from Nacogdoches, TX USA

Love the bra. Its' so nice to be able to find a larger sized bra that is sexy. It's comfortable and lifts well. I would love to see this in other colors. Shelly

The cups lifted and separated the girls however, the cups were too small as I was spilling out from the sides and the front and the wire wasn't coming up against my rib cage as it should. I'm going to try a larger cup size and see if that helps. Alicia from Nacogdoches, TX USA

Had to send this one back. The underwires rose up way too high under my arms and on my chest. Not comfy at all. The 8001 fit much better.

HerRoom Response: You note that you are petite in stature. We have a category on our site called Plus Size Petites that calls out bras that work best for women of your height. Brenda from Wy

This is the best bra I have ever had! I am purchasing the second one! it holds my breasts up high enough to where they don't look like they are in the middle of my stomach! If I had seven of them, one for every day, I would be happy. Great side support as well! straps don't leave red marks! Julie from Ohio, USA

This is an okay bra, by far not my favorite elomi. It does have a lot of support, however the sides are cut lower than I like and give me back fat. Other than that though it is a good bra. Stacey from Rochester Hills Mi USA

This item was made horribly for my body at least. It was loose in the nipple area and too tight in the side off the breast. Great idea but bad fit for me.

Elomi Response: Sounds like the cups are too small. The wire needs to be behind the breast tissue (on the rib cage) in order for all of the breast tissue to sit fully in the cups, and be able to fill that nipple area. Try the ‘swoop and scoop’ to get your breasts into the cups properly… Meg from las vegas, NV

Needs a little more support in the band of the bra, to help keep breast tissue in bra's cups. Harmony from Louisiana

I am full figured and finding a comfortable bra is very, very hard. While searching the internet I was led to "Elomi". I had never heard of the brand, but I will be a regular customer. I'm glad I took a chance and ordered it. It is very comfortable, the support is fantastic, and it is beautiful...I will be ordering another very soon. Ladies you can't go wrong, give it a try. Delivery was super fast, HerRoom, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Patricia from District Heights MD

I was impressed with the front of this bra. The underwire bone did not stick out but stayed firm between my breasts. The cup fit was perfect! My only complaint is the underwire under my arm pit pokes. I am going to reinforce pad just the inch on each side to make it more comfortable there. I am hard to fit if the boning is more in front and not under my armpit, the cup does not fit. I haven't washed it yet. I always hand wash. This bra looks beautiful under blouses. Smooth and "holds up the girls" nicely. Lots of looks while wearing this bra. Nancy in California from Watsonville, CA 95076
