Lower center gore than some models; bandless; doesn't stretch out too quickly; Pretty in the charcoal grey with lavender trim--which is sold out in my size. Submitted from TheUndies.com

It fits perfectly and the fact that it's bandless means it doesn't irritate my midriff. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This seems to fit perfectly, and it's pretty, too! The only problem I have with it is that the left underwire keeps migrating in the casing from the cleavage side to the armpit side. Haven't had it for very long so I can't speak to durability, but I can definitely say I'm sad to see it discontinued. shadowsong from Seattle

I usually wear a 34G in other brands such as Wacoal, but I guess the F cup in this brand is the equivalent to a G. The band was a lovely fit, but the cups I guess were small because my boobs were spilling all over the top and sides. It practically pushed my breasts into my armpits. Willing to give this particular bra another try but not sure if I should try it in the FF cup or maybe the G cup. Response from manufacturer would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Elomi Response: Cleo is a great bra, you might want to try the 34G if you had that much “Spillage” out of the cup. You might also want to look at the Fantasie and Freya lines as well which is part of the eveden group that owns elomi. There are a lot of really cute styles in all of the lines, and you have lots of choices in a 34G. Mona from Virginia Beach

This bra is the best bra I ever had. I heard they are discontinuing this one. I hope this is not the case. It takes an easy 5 lbs off my figure due to the excellent side support. I just wish it was cheaper-but I suppose it really is worth it. maurboo from lake hiawatha, nj

Elomi makes the prettiest bras for large women, and I thank them for understanding that ALL women, no matter what their size, shape or age, SHOULD feel pretty. Unfortunately, Elomi has not united comfort with beauty. I'm a 5'5, 250 pound, 44GG, short-waisted, 46-year young woman. This bra was recommended for the short-waisted woman. The underwire sits too low and runs into the roll of fat above my waist. If I didn't have to sit down this would be a comfortable bra. Also, the GG was slightly (less than 1/4") large, so you may want to go down 1 cup size for this bra. This is my third & last Elomi purchase. I have 3 of the prettiest bras, but I can only wear them for 3 hours, and have to take my "comfy" bra (with an unflattering shape) to change into after 3 hours. I shouldn't have to haul around a "back-up" bra everywhere I go. I gave the bra 3 stars for being so pretty, well constructed, and for it's great support & round shape. Being in my mid-40's, my breasts naturally fall toward my waist and go out to the sides. The Elomi brand puts "the girls" front and center, without putting them right under my chin. It's a natural looking shape. I want to LOVE Elomi, because they get it right in so many other ways.

Elomi Response: This Cleo style is a bandless style which means that the wire has the appearance of being a “floating wire” that can sometimes cut into our “fluffiness” especially for those of us that are short-waisted like yourself. You might want to try a style that has a banded wire so the wire at the bottom of the cup goes straight across the bottom of the cup so it does nut cut into your short-waisted body. The Cleo actually comes in a banded style #8000 which might be a better style for you along with the Elomi Caityln style #8030. Please refer to Tomima's fit tips to a great fit to make sure you are in the correct size. Are you a 42GG or a 44G? Bailey from Glenwood Springs

This is a beautiful bra. I had to return the DD for a C cup and I can't believe the support. I recently lost a lot of weight and was unsure of what size I needed. HerRoom consultants were very helpful. I love this bra and it's nice to not have "the girls" heading for my waistline! Diana from Illinois/USA

What a joy to finally find a bra that supports, fits, and looks pretty. I have very full, heavy breasts and have struggled for YEARS to find a good-fitting bra. When I stumbled on the HerRoom.com site, I started reading reviews and found so many positive comments made about the Elomi line that I thought I would give them a try. I was a bit concerned about the price, but after trying these bras, I can see why they cost more than others I have tried. I also love the bra-fitting guidelines offered on the website, which helped me find the right size. This bra is wonderful--the wire stays flat against my body, and the center of the bra also stays flat against my body--no bulging out in the center. I love that the straps are set a bit farther on the shoulder, as it is much more comfortable and I don't end up with the deep "dents" that other bras leave. Ladies, if you are large busted, do yourself a favor and try an Elomi bra. You will be so glad you did! Barb from Kokomo, IN

After a professional fitting, and the purchase of the elomi Cleo bra, I needed to get additional bras. I trusted that HerRoom would have the exact size and style and colors needed, and they did. They fit fabulously, are comfortable and arrived promptly. Great, dependable service. Sharyn from Lawrence, Kansas, USA

Great bra, just too small in the cup/chest circumference for me. It fit like a DDDD in the cup, and like a 34 in diameter. Christie from East Bay, CA

I had purchased this bra in a 34G at a local store. I've been wearing it although I felt a 34H, my regular size, would be a better fit. The 34H was much too large in the cups in comparison. I may try the 34GG. Otherwise, I do like this bra style for a short waisted figure. joan

I absolutely love this bra! I have lost a significant amount of weight over the past year, and I was finally (for the first time in my life) fitted for a bra. Luckily, while I was at the department store, the regional rep from Elomi was there, and she helped fit me into this bra. She explained that the cup size for this bra is slightly smaller than "true", so I am wearing a cup size larger than I would normally wear. It fits perfectly on me, which is something I truly have never been able to say about any other bra I've worn before. Great product. Highly recommend it. Joanna from Chicago, IL, USA

This is a beautiful bra but the fit was off for me. I'm going to see if I can have it tailored. It seems to be for a bustier woman, full bust. Kate from Jacksonville, IL USA

Was no different than any other bra I own. Pokes the pits. I will return it.

Elomi Response: I’m a bit puzzled because your size is posted as 44C, but EL8100 starts at an E-cup (DDD) –if 44C is your correct size, the cup would be far too large for you… If you’re finding that wires poke you under the arm, no matter what the brand or the style, you might well have a “short upper torso” (meaning not much room between the bottom of the breast to the shoulder). If this is the case, you might be much more comfortable in a soft cup bra –with no wires to cope with. I would recommend you try Elomi Caitlyn 8033 in the Elomi brand. It’s a gorgeous comfy bra, and it comes in a C-cup! Hersy from Buford, GA 30519

This is a beautiful bra. I love the lower center front and under arms. I am short waisted and the bandless bra is great for me. I do wish more bras were designed for women who need wider band sizes but not more coverage, which we really don't need with an A, B, or C cup. This bra would be perfect without the elastic at the top. It does not lie perfectly smooth at the top. Small puckers show with thin knit shirts, which is what I wear with temperatures in the 70's in January. I wish this bra came with a smooth top version. I am considering the Dominique 3500, next. It seems to have the same low center but smoother cups. Elizabeth from New Orleans, Louisiana,USA

Very supportive bra and very pretty. My only complaint is how high this comes up under my arms. I ordered it because it was supposed to be for shorter waisted women and this bra comes up higher than any other that I have had. I think it will be comfortable if I can get used to that.

This is my absolute FAVORITE bra!!! I love the bandless style, it doesn't dig into my ribs, it's very supportive and it's pretty! I highly recommend this bra to women with fuller busts. Kate from Westminster, CO
