Support and comfort, plus looks! I got this in Truffle for the sale price, but I love it! The girls are secure, up there, and look good. Carrie from Allen Park, MI US

I wore the Goddess 106 for many years, which has now been discontinued. So I find myself looking for replacement bra. This bra fits well in the cup and the band, but the underwire comes up too high under the arm and is very uncomfortable. The curve of the underwire also takes this bra too far into the armpit area where my breast tissue does not exist. As a result, the breast tissue relaxes back into the underarm area making my bust look wider than it should (despite the side support panel). However, to be fair, I have tried on other bras that made me look significantly wider than this one. For size only this bra would have been adequate, but with the underarm pain and discomfort from the underwire, it is pretty much unwearable.

Elomi Response: It is possible that you need a 34 band in a j cup. The wire should never go that far back behind the breast tissue. You could also try the Elomi Abi bra 8100 that has a slightly lower wire under the arm, style 8100. Another choice would be the Goddess alice bra style 6041 which is more similar to the Goddess style 106. Jag from Canada

I really like the way it lifts, supports and separates. I only wish that there were more than two hook/eye closures. I think that 4 would make for a better feel/fit. Debbie from Texas

The side support bras make all the difference in the world. Holds the girls in and gives an out forward look especially for large sizes. Helps makes clothes look better. Wouldn't ever have a no side support bra. This is the only place I can find one in my cup size. Diana from Cannon Beach, Oregon USA

This bra fits me very well. Up until I tried a J because there was no I in my size available, I have been buyin the wrong cup size all of my life. It is wonderful to have a bra that actually come in to my breast bone between the cups. I finally know what it means to have a bra "Lift and Separate" There was never any separation before!

I love these bras. The only thing I would change is that the piece that come up under the armpit would be just s tad bit shorter. I don't like it going so high up. Riki from Oregon

I finally have a bra that fits and supports! An underwire that doesn't poke me. I appreciate the Universal Cup Sizing and the fitting advice. Wish I could buy 6 more Elomi bras. Joyce from NJ

This is a really good bra. Like the other elomi's I have, it has great support, fits well, is as comfortable as a bra can be for the size I am, and it does come in good colors. the lift is great, and i feel like it will hold up well. the only reason i don't give it a 5 is that the center gore is so high. I wish i could get an elomi in a demi cup or at least with out such a high center gore. It makes it hard to wear low cut shirts when i want to. I need the width in the cup, so i can't go down a size, but not all big breasted ladies need full coverage. If you want lots of coverage, great support and full back and sides, this is a great bra. seems to run true to size as well compared to other elomi bras. It's a bit fuller than the Abi style, at least on me. Cassie from Lafayette

This is the first underwire bra that doesn't poke out the front of my shirt. The fit is great. My only fault I have is the material is a little stiff and stratchy. I will be ordering more. Deanne from Beardstown, Illinois, USA

I thought it looked like a nice bra, however, the size I was measured for and have worn for years, when I ordered the same size, it was huge and unfortunately, I have to return it.

Elomi Response: Was it too big in the band or the cup? This style is a super great and supportive style when it is in the correct size. Try a different size and refer to Tomimas fit tips on tips for fit and size. Diane from Lockport, IL

Best fitting bra I've ever gotten. I used the universal sizing to find something tougher than the Goddess bras, and this fits perfectly. Sue from Minneapolis, MN

I think Elomi’s bras are the prettiest there are. Unfortunately the only one which comes in my size is the Caitlyn underwire. I tried to wear it with the underwire, but after a couple of hours, I found it so painful that I had to give up. It might be a little better if it came in size 44HH in a soft cup design, which probably provides support in a different way. When you are a size HH, you need more than three hooks for back support. The band cuts in underneath the breasts, causing pain and bruising to the ribcage in that area. On the whole, I am very happy with Her Room. A very big thank you to all of you women (or ladies) who have written such helpful reviews! They have been so helpful for me ordering bras from overseas.

Elomi Response: I am so sorry for your years of discomfort, but it does not have to be that way. The wires should never cause bruising because the wire should clear all of the breast tissue therefore not be on your breast tissue. It is possible that you need a bandless wire rather than a banded wire. The elomi 8100 Abi bra is a bandless style that might fit you better because it does not have the extra band at the bottom of the cup. We also have some Goddess styles that are wireless that would work for you like the Alice soft cup bra style 6040, or the Jayne bra style 6002. You might also want to make sure you are in the correct size that you are not a J cup, as this can also add to discomfort. Susan from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Love this bra, I've had trouble finding a bra that fits me the way I want as I've grown older. This bra lifts, seperates and supports the sides beautifully. Will order more for sure. Jacquie from Durham NC USA

It seemed to be a little big in the top of the cup, and it just was too "old lady" looking for me. But good construction, very full cup coverage. But I returned this one

Elomi Response: It sounds like the cup was a size too full. The Caitlyn is a great style and gives a ton of support. You could try it in a 36H or 36(D8), or another great style is the elomi abi bra style 8100 which is a little lower in the center gore. Sara from Boston,MA
