This is the most comfortable bra I have found, so far. It is lighter feeling than most and still maintains control. Leigh

I have been pleased in the past with this style, but the stays of the one I just got protrude in my cleavage. Does this mean the cup size is too big or too small? I had noticed in the past that this occurs when the bra gets stretched out and doesn't fit as tightly as when new. I have one unopened that I may return, but first I need to try it on to make sure the "protruding" one is an anomaly.

Elomi Response: The center gore should be resting against the chest wall. If your midriff area is full and the bra band is resting on your tummy the wire can protrude out. If you have extra room in the cup, definately the cup is too full. Please refer to HerRoom's Bra Fitting Advice Page to ensure your bra is fitting you correctly. Linda from Corpus Christi, Texas

I ordered a cup size smaller than I measured and it was still too large. Returning for the next size down as I really liked it otherwise. Nancy from Vermont usa

Very comfortable, fits well and gives great support. The best is that it was on sale which is a rare for this size. Love this brand and the way it fits Carol from San Francisco Bay Area, California

Best bra ever! Have tried the "famous"molded t-shirt one,but nothing compares to this one. Support is excellent. Fit is great. Did not initially love due to stiff fabric and need for some modesty coverage,but washes and lasts well. I own 4 and will only order this one from now on. Caryn from Orlando

This bra creates a strange shape to the breasts. It brings them close together and then flattens them out side to side, sort of like when you are being compressed for your mammogram. Everything about the rest of the fit is comfortable, the straps, underwire and back closure. Just not certain I will like the pushed together and flattened appearance under all clothing.

Elomi Response: The description of your fit sound like you may need a fuller cup. Please refer to HerRoom's Bra Fitting Advice Page to ensure you're selecting the correct size. Jan from Lexington KY USA

The fit and fabric and style were fine. Unfortunately the straps are elasticized, and therefore did not give a firm fit and therefore I had to return the item. I don't think this was mentioned in the description.

Elomi Response: Elomi's Caitlyn 8030 has restricted stretch straps, which have minimal stretch. If you're experiencing shoulder strap slippage, your band might be too large. Please be sure to adjust the shoulder strap correctly.

Fit was not good..normal E cup was too small and also did not contain flesh well toward armpit area.

Elomi Response: Please refer to HerRoom's Bra Fitting Advice Page to ensure you're selecting the correct size. Also, another great Elomi style to consider is our elomi Abi Bandless Bra EL8100. This frame is bandless, less coverage, lighter construction and is perfect for a petite frame and short waisted body types. Susanne from MA

This is my 3rd bra from Elomi. All are comfortable & flattering but they run a little bit large. I wouldn't advise going a full size smaller, just tweak the cup/band ratio. ewd from nj

I have worn this barand of bra for years, but could no longer purchase it from my former supplier. I was so pleased with your fast response to my order. Loved the "Know Your Breasts". Ordered the bras before I did the breast thing and believe it or not I had ordered the correct bra. Diana from USA

I loved this bra when I first put it on. It's very pretty and it lifted the girls up nice and high. However, after about twenty minutes the wires were absolutely digging into my ribcage and by the end of the day, I was almost in tears if I didn't move carefully. I've never found an underwire bra that I could wear comfortably and this one was no different for me.

Elomi Response: Please consider our elomi Abi Bandless Bra EL8100 in 40 D6. Abi is bandless for less coverage and features lighter construction that is particularly good for short-waisted body types. In addition, please consider elomi Caitlyn Soft Cup Bra EL8033 in 40 D6. This wireless option has the same great features that 8030 has without the underwire. Sandra from Edgewood/NM/USA

My breasts are shallow from top to bottom. In all my life I never found a bra that fit the bottom of my breasts. This bra fits at the bottom of my breasts. Before, I depended on the fabric of the cup, rather than the underwire, for support. Once the bra was washed a few times, that little bit of support waned. After two years of washing and wearing, this bra still fits at the bottom and the fabric has stood up; I still get support. Susie from Virginia

Was leary about ordering bras online but the guide made it easy and the "quiz" was a hoot. The bras I ordered fit very well and are comfortable to wear. Joann from Poughkeepsie,NY,USA

Not sure if the bra was damaged in shipping but the underwire was uncomfortable, underwire cut into me horribly after having it on for an hour. Both the bras I purchased felt the same way. Unfortunately I didn't know until after wearing them so I am not able to return them

Elomi Response: May we suggest our elomi Abi Bandless Bra EL8100 which is ideal for a petite, shorter upper torso shape. Abi is also bandless, lower at the center gore and has a smaller wire frame. C from Oregon

I would have preferred that the cups be a bit thicker and seamless. The bra looks unflattering under certain fabrics. Le from North Carolina

This is just too much bra, and makes you feel as though you have on a harness! Also, the shape it gives you harkens back to the 1960,s, and is far from flattering. It is much too bulky for anyone with a petite stature, and may be better suited to a taller longer waisted body type. Lee from Illinois

I returned this bra because it didn't fit right. I normally wear a 40G but the size chart converted to the 42FF. Did not feel comfortable ordering a different size because I wasn't sure what the fit problem was (larger/smaller cup or different style). The band fit was a little large but would work in the second row of hooks. MJ from California

this bra ran very small on me - both the cups and the band.

Was initially 'fitted' at a highend lingerie shop and purchased my first elomi bra there. Paid waaay too much so found Her Room. Have since purchased 4 more bras and absolutely love the fit. As many have stated, bra stays in place and helps give definition to bust - ie. no 'tire' look. Susan from Canada

I did not care for the support of this bra - the satin feel of it made me think it might not last as long as other bras. HOWEVER - I did order two sizes too large, so perhaps a smaller fit would make me like it. I will not be ordering it, though.

Elomi Response: Elomi #8030 satin simplex bottom cup offer ultra support. Please visit HerRoom's Bra Fitting Advice Page for determining your correct band and cup size. The corrected size I'm certain will give the support you're looking for. Sarah from Virginia

I've worn this bra before and love it. The underwire keeps everything where it needs to be and the "Caitlyn" is an elegant bra that feels great. Gymom from South Carolina
