I really wanted to like this bra. In general it is pretty comfortable. I like the wide, comfortable shoulder straps and how the whole thing snugs close to me. Two problems are that the underwires poke my underarms, and worse, by about the middle of the day I started getting blisters or some kind of wound under the band, just behind my arm, on one side. I am wondering if the band is too small, so I'm going to re-order with a bigger band/smaller cup. I'm just worried that will only accentuate the underwire poking problem. I may try the 8060 as well, to see if the demi-cup works better on my shorter frame.

Elomi Response: You’re correct so often it’s the size not the style which causes discomfort. It’s also just as important to put the bra on properly as it is to find the correct style and size. (Please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit to help you). It’s also important that the band is snug enough to stay parallel to the floor, and doesn’t ride up. If the band is too loose, it will move around your torso, and this is what can cause chafing and blistering. You might like a band-less style like our Abi (EL8100). Abi has a lower center gore than EL8030, and the wires are a slightly lighter gage – lighter construction all round. RBF from IL, USA

This is a perfect everyday bra. It is supportive, comfortable, and smooth enough to be worn under most blouses. Finding bras in larger sizes is difficult enough, so finding something pretty, that comes in a range of colors, was a bonus! Jess from Texas, USA

Elomi 8030 Caitlyn Underwire really minimizes your breast size. It make you look neat no matter what you put on. In fact I switched all my undergarments over to Elom's. "Donna B" from Baltimore, Maryland

Finally a bra that fits and holds things where they should be. I feel supported and comfortable. This is one of the only bras that I have where the center panel sits properly on my sternum. It gives a nice silhouette and makes me look thinner. Love it. Christine from North Carolina

I have had a full bust all my life. I have tried many bras. I have to say this is the best pf the lot. It fits better than any I have tried. The underwire is great, very comfortable, it actually lies flat against my breastbone like it should. the side control cup is great, no pooching out or over the cup. I can't recommend this one highly enough. Melissa from Bellevue WA USA

Super comfortable for an underwire bra. I can even sleep in it. Has great support and shape as well. Perfect everyday bra. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This bra is well constructed, pretty and sturdy. It fits well, separating my breasts, preventing the shelf look and the cups fully contained my breasts without puckering or flattening. My back was not tired at the end of the day. My only complaint is that the bra digs into the flesh in my side and underarms, ouch! It is true that the side support bras will do that...and as mentioned above, the bra contains the breasts and that is one of the things I always look for in a bra. I have this bra in both nude and sapphire and like them both. However, you cannot wear this bra under cotton without a camisole. The bras wash well and fit as well after several washes as they did when I bought them margaret from massachusetts

This is a well constructed, supportive bra. The girls look better than they have in years. Unfortunately this style does not quite fit my body type, I have trouble with the straps staying up and the side wires poke into my underarms. Following HerRoom's fitting advice I have tried several different bra styles and sizes and found the Elomi 1220, which fits perfectly. I would definitely recommend this bra if it fits your body type.

This bra is very comfortable. It gives me a nice shape and holds everything in place. My only complaint is that the straps in the back make a creaking noise when I move my arms/shoulders around. I've remedied this by wrapping a little electrical tape around the circular piece of hardware. Amy from Columbus, OH

This bra gives me good shape and great support. It puts me up and out front, rather than spreading me out to the side and "minimizing." It very comfortable overall. The only drawback is in the shoulders - after 8-10 hours of wear, I start to feel the straps putting pressure on my shoulders. But then, that's something I notice after wearing almost any bra all day. I've been happy wearing a seamless, underwire bra made by Goddess for some years now. I'm going to add a few more of this 3-section underwire bra by Elomi to my wardrobe now - I'm very pleased with it. Cat from Portland, ME, USA

The fit was exactly right , however .... the wire that sits under the arm is extremely uncomfortable ! I can't wear it , too painful .

Elomi Response: You must have a shorter upper-torso which means you probably run into this problem of being cut under the arm frequently. You could try a few styles in Fantasie like the Savannah 2152 or Florence 2412. Namphuyo from Miami , Fl U.S.A.
