When I put this bra on it felt like it fit well and provided great support. After wearing it for an hour I was in pain. I ended up with bruises on my ribs. I wish I would have kept the tags on and worn it at home for awhile before trusting my first impression.

Elomi Response: Heidi, it’s so difficult to comment without seeing the bra on your body, or getting a more detailed description. We usually hear nothing but glowing reviews for this particular bra, but something obviously isn’t working for you. More often than not in these cases though, the problem will be an incorrect size, and not the style. You mentioned you had bruises on your ribs: This could mean the band is too snug, or it could also be that you’re not putting yourself into the bra properly (which is just as important as finding the correct size and shape).

If the band really IS too small you might try temporarily putting in an extender until the band stretches out (it WILL stretch). You’ll also want to make sure you do the “swoop-and-scoop” thing, swooping all of your breast tissue into the cups from the back to the front so that the under-wire sits behind the breast tissue on bone: The under-wire should surround and support the entire breast, the center piece (the fabric between the cups) should “tack” (come right up against the chest wall) and the band should be snug enough to stay parallel to the floor (and not ride up).

If you still find you just can’t make this bra work for you, you might want to try our Abi bra 8100 . The under-wires in Abi are a bit more flexible than those in EL8030 and Abi is actually bandless which you might find more comfortable. Heidi from MN/USA

I have two of these bras (in red and black) and they are perfect. Sturdy and pretty. Boobs face forward, are held up high and nice support around the body. Recommend highly. Carla from Rancho Cucamonga, CA

I had purchased this bra in Pearl locally and loved the fit and color, but it was especially nice to be able to buy something with color. Local stores don't carry much inventory so you get white, black & nude, which is boring!! I love the carnation pink and sapphire blue. Bring in more colors and I'll be back for them too. Very pretty bra. Diane from Grants Pass, OR USA

This bra is pretty and very functional. When I am in this bra, I don't feel like a grandma and I have all of the lift, support and separation I could desire. I must also say that the fact that you have a Size Chart available for each and every bra is a FANTASTIC help when converting between US and Euro sizes. I am a 44I in US sizes and there is no doubt, thanks to your chart, that I am getting the right size regardless of the conversions. AWESOME JOB HerRoom!!! Amanda from Eldorado/IL

This was the bra I was seeking to use each day! The coverage is excellent. My shoulder pain has gone! My clothes look better and people have made comments on a possible weight loss (not!). Pat from Fargo/ND/USA

Great fit, support and comfort. The only improvement I would like is the same bra, but without the embroidery as it is not smooth under some knit shirts. Julie from New Iberia, LA USA

It was delightful to finally find a bra that fit, and it feels so good. The only problem I have is the straps, they won't stay up and if I shorten them, the side of the bra is too high. Nancy from Alamogordo, NM, USA

This is the bra for me. Gives me that 'out front' look and holds me up all day long. My girls are very heavy and I need lots of support. The wires do not stick under the arms and the wire in front lays flat-something I have never experienced before. Audrey from Pembroke Pines, FL USA

This was my first time ordering a bra from a website. Overall the experience was great! My items arrived quickly, wrapped in nice tissue paper. This was my first time trying an Elomi bra. The bra itself is gorgeous, with lots of support, a great everyday bra. The fit was perfect. The only downfall: the wire pressed too hard into my breastbone in the front between the breasts. I hoped the discomfort would just not be there the next time I tried on this bra. But alas, this bra will not work for me. I sent it in this week to exchange it. I showed it to my mom, she showed me that she wears the same bra! She is larger in the chest and loves this bra. The wires don't lay flat against her chest though. Anon from Chicago, IL

This bra is great! This bra was comfortable from the moment I put it on and stayed that way all day. It also gave me a nice shape. I typically wear a 32K in Panache bras, so this cup was a tad small but fits well. I bought it in sapphire and it is beautiful and quiet flattering. Angie from PT, WA

Have this bra in a bigger size, lost weight, ordered in my new size....way too big. Unfortunately, it doesn't come in a size that fits me any more. Loved this bra when I was bigger. Deb from UT

This bra fitted me very nicely. It gave me a nice support and did not make me feel like I was being squeezed like some garments have. It is not uncomfortable to wear on a hot day like a lot of the ones I have already. It gives me good separation and I don't get itchy from sweating. I slump my shoulders less. A very nice bra. It is made from a nice soft material too. Wendy from Katy/ Texas

This bra is very comfortable. I get good support and fit in the cups without the dreaded poke in the underarm. The straps could be a little shorter to avoid the pressure of the hardware in the shoulder. Tee from fort wayne, IN

Fits perfectly. The cups actually fit all of my breasts, no bulging in the front or sides. The straps don't dig. Very comfortable. Laura from louisville/ky/usa

This is a nice bra for larger cups, but unfortunately the stitching is such that I can't wear it under most of my summer clothes without the bra showing through. daughterd from Durham, NC

This bra was my introduction to the elomi brand after being fitted at a department store. I am a fan of the brand for life. However, as stated by another customer, I have trouble with the center wire ends pressing too tightly against the breastbone. Also, the underarm ends tend to poke as well (I'm short-waisted). It's not so unbearable that I can't wear it; it's just a nuisance. I have since found other elomi styles that fit me so much nicer. Lynda from USA

Wow! An underwire in my size! I can't stand the way the soft cup bras push you together, no matter what the description says. This bra fits perfectly, and the way it holds you up, the straps don't even hurt! (Although the description for this bra says 'side support', it's not actually the side of the breast. The wire is against your ribs under your arm. But that's OK!) I'm a happy camper now that I've found this site and I'm going to order one of the sexier underwire bras next! Sandy from Richmond, VA

I was recently fitted and discovered that I had been wearing a band size too large and cup size too small. After trying the Elomi Caitlyn, I bought several more colors at HerRoom. This bra fits me very well in every respect. It completely encloses and brings forward the breast tissue at the sides. The underwires feel strong but comfortable and there is no poking or pinching. The construction also gives good support from beneath the bust, lifting it to where it should be. The straps stay put and do not slip. This bra is also pretty, with the satin and lace cups. It's also nice that this bra comes in seasonal colors other than the standard neutrals; I love the Carnation and Sapphire. I'm very pleased with the fit, comfort and look of the Elomi Caitlyn.
