This was my first Elomi bra and while I liked the style, the fit was not good - cup size too small. I am returning for another Fantasie bra in the same size.

Elomi Response: The cup usually runs true to size, you could try the 34FF or G. Hope the Fantasie bra works for you!!! Pat from Texas

This is a great bra. I almost returned it because it was "loose". or so I thought. I have outgrown my other bras after kids and I was used to a snug bra. I was afraid since it felt loose it wouldn't be supportive. I was wrong. This supports me all day long and is super comfortable. I was a little worried when I first put it on because the side of my breast looked flat but my husband said he didn't notice it. After a few days I didn't notice it anymore. So I'm not sure if stretched to fit better after I wore it or if I put it on differently the first day. My only complaint is the pattern on the top. I cannot wear this bra with a solid colored t-shirt without the lines showing. I'm still looking for a good solid bra that is supportive so I can stop layering. Nina from USA

I had read all the instructions so I had the right size and know how to properly 'load' myself into a bra. (haha) And I was so excited to find such a beautiful bra in a beautiful color for big gals. When I first put it on, I was so impressed with the superior fit, construction, design and materials, etc. It was fantastic! Until I moved....which is when I screamed. Literally screamed aloud! The underwires are totally solid, rigid and do not flex! Plus, they are too long on the outside and stabbed me in my armpits. Because the underwire is like this, it caused terrible pain. I couldn't get this thing off fast enough. I wore it 30 seconds and was in tears! Why on earth did they put a completely rigid underwire into a bra!? That's crazy! I was so very disappointed. :-( How on earth this is a best seller and women actually like this torture device is beyond me. I really hope they will change the underwire because if they do - this will be the best bra on earth. Please change the underwire to one like the Playtex Secrets line uses. Thanks. :-)

Elomi Response: The Caitlyn bra is one of our top sellers and usually fits great! If the wire was cutting you under the armit is possible that either the band or the cup was too large? Depending on how you are built, if you have a shorter upper torso meaning from the top of your shoulder to the underwire of your bra directly under the breast, then it is possible that the underwire could cut you due to it coming up too high. Please make sure the cup is not too big! Maybe you could try the 44E or a 42F cup. Kathy from NY

This bra is extrememly comfortable, I wear about a 44G and found this to be so comfortable and supportive. I have tried many other bras in the past and haven't found many this comfortable, beautiful, and supportive! MY only con- I wish the sides weren't as wide, they go rather high, but I know this is needed for the support! Roseanna from Eastern Nevada

Elomi does it again. I started my Elomi experience with a Cleo a year ago, and recently bought the Caitlyn because I wanted a splash of color. For my personal body shape, the support fall slightly differently from the Cleo's, and I admit I like the breast shape the Cleo gives me a little more, but the Caitlyn still gives me the same great support and fit I've come to expect from Elomi bras. The color and lace is gorgeous, and I thus far have had no problems with fit or wear. It stays put, does what it's supposed to, and looks awesome doing it. I put it on and forget about it, and that's exactly what a good bra should do. The cup comes right up to the edge of my breast. When they say "full coverage," they mean full coverage. But that's okay, there's no popping out at the top to worry about. Caitlyn gives your cleavage clean classy lines. I love my Elomi bras. They're all I wear now! Sassy from San Diego

I discovered your product at a bra boutique, try it on and loved the fit. The only problem was they only had one in my size. I when on line to your website and their I found much more. I received my items 2 bras and matching panties and they fit perfect and they are SEXY. For years I have wore two bras at the same time to get the support I wanted, with your bras I get the support I need and want. Thank you!!! Marilyn from Chicago/ IL / USA

I almost love this bra, but I wish manufacturers would figure out that a US I-cup (UK G) needs more than 2 rows of hooks. The fabric is great, the cup design is great, the underwires don't bite, but the band is flimsy and gives out quickly. It was a great bra for about 2 months (cycling 5 bras). I'd give it a shot with a 32GG instead of a 34G, but of course they don't make it in a 32 band size. Come on, guys, once you get up to a US F, you need at least 3 rows of hooks, and for anything US H or higher give us 4. Look at the old Vanity Fair My Satin Fantasy bra--I used to cram a US38J into their 40DDD with surprisingly supportive results because the band was magnificent. I'm paying you $50-60 for a bra, stop cheaping out on the band! Aimee from St Louis, MO

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

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
