Most of our customers have found that 8030 gives a very lifted, perky and natural look. Sometimes we can get that “torpedo effect”-look when the cups are too small (when too much breast tissue is forced into a space that’s simply too small for it, the tissue will be forced forward, giving a more “projected” look).

8030 is one of our all-time fave bras ever, but as we all know, not all bras will be right for everybody.
Elomi bras are designed to give you a very specific “custom” fit. To accomplish this we use non-stretch fabrication in our cups, and our bands have a bit more structure than some of the other brands.
Selecting the correct size is essential for comfort and support. So often it’s an incorrect size, and not the style that makes a bra uncomfortable, and not able to do the job of supporting the breast tissue.
And it’s just as important to put the bra on properly as it is to find the correct size and style.
Marcia, it’s difficult to comment without seeing the bra on your body, and not knowing which Goddess bra you’ve been wearing and whether or not it had under-wires. Very often it’s the size and not the style which makes the bra uncomfortable: If you feel the under-wires are a bit too firm for your body type, perhaps you’d like our Abi Bra 8100, where the under-wires are more flexible than in EL8030.

Stephanie, very often it’s simply the wrong size and not the style which makes a bra uncomfortable.
Also, it’s so important to put yourself into the bra properly (which is just as important as finding the correct size and style): Make sure you “swoop-and-scoop” all of your breast tissue into the cups from the back to the front so that the under-wire surrounds and supports the whole breast… Make sure the under-wire sits behind the breast tissue, on bone. The center gore should “tack” (come right up against the breast bone) and the band should be snug enough to stay parallel to the floor and not ride up.
If you’ve done all of the above and you’re still uncomfortable, perhaps try our Abi Bra 8100. The under-wires are a bit more flexible than in EL8030.

Gapping on the side of the cup can occur when not all of the breast tissue is scooped into the cup. I can’t stress enough how vital it is to bring all of the breast tissue forward, from the back to the front of the under-wire to fill the cup. The center front should be right up against the chest wall for separation and support. You want it “snugging up” against the chest wall –but not tight: If you’re finding the center gore is pressing in too much on the chest wall, perhaps go up a band size to a 40.
