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.
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?
