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

Didn't like the fit of this. A little larger around the band and the cup than the Goddess. Lois from Camp Verde/AZ/USA

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

bra was a little snug and made my breasts squish in instead of making them look big and beautiful. i really liked the look of bra but was expecting more from the fit. sue from wisconsin

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.

Love this bra. It is the first bra that really fits me- a full busted woman- correctly! I also appreciate finally being able to find pretty, feminine design and colors in my size. Lauren from Michigan/USA

Excellent fit and comfort. Recently lost weight and had been trying to replace my standard bra, but it does not come in a 34 bandwidth. I needed something with a shorter center point, as I tend to be short waisted and am 5'4". Bra gives good lift and encapsulation and is comfortable. It is not as quite as "corset like" as I other bras, but will be one I buy again. The only issue would be the pressure that occurs when I'm doing floor exercises, and the center presses extremely tight against my chest. I have to place a piece of folded cloth between the bra and my skin so as to relieve the pressure. There must be something about the way this bra is engineered to make it so supportive, but it is a small inconvenience. It took several orders to get the right size, as I have a narrow back and don't need the cups to extend too far on the sides. I ready many reviews here and truly appreciate the voice that previous customers lend about their purchases. Kansas Gal from Manhattan, KS

Best support I've found in a long time - I feel secure in this bra and don't "pop-out" over the top. This bra also separates very nicely so I look better under tops. Anna from Pennsylvania

I love this bra. It has the support I need, but couldn't find. I was fitted at a local store several years ago, but their price is much higher than yours. I'll be back. jeannie from grants pass, oregon

Definitely full coverage and the straps are nice and high instead of pulled off to the side like so many bras are. So this makes it a good everyday bra. Also gives great lift for that perky look. Great separation, although it fits kind of like a minimizer in that you spread a little to the sides. Have gotten spoiled with the Chantelle 3-sided bras that hold that side spread to the inside, but then you have the wider set straps that for me can get a little uncomfortable for an everyday bra. This one also has very hard underwire that rubs on my chest ribs. But all in all it's a good everyday bra, just wish I could find something like this in a seamless.

This is the one and only bra that I have found in the last three years that fits me in all of the right places!! I have lots of particulars that I like about a bras fit: lays flat to chest bone, no over-flow out top, and lifts 'em into place. This one does all three. I wish it was made in the exact fit, but no lace to show through. I have tried the Smoothing, and others, but none fit the same. Kris from Iowa

The cups on this bra fit me perfectly. They are very supportive & flattering. However, the elastic in the band rubs my ribs to where I'm sore by the end of the day... G. from MO

This bra supports well, minimizes a bit and stays in place comfortably all day. While the sizing info on the site indicated I should wear a 40F in this bra, I did need my usual 40G. Lori from Connecticut

It's so nice to have a bra that fits correctly: the straps stay in place, the girls stay in place, the underwire doesn't poke into my armpit, and the middle part lies against my breastbone instead of sticking out! Andrea from Boise, ID

I am so excited that I've found such a great place to buy bra's that fit. I purchased the lovely bra in a 38HH. The underwire does not fit under my breast and it seems like I have too much fabric in the cup. I think I need a smaller band and cup. The support is not there. Any suggestions?

Elomi Response: It’s hard to tell without seeing you in person, but it does sound as if both the cup and the band are too large. Please remember how important it is to place the breasts into the cups properly, making sure to swoop and scoop the breasts from the back to the front so that the under-wire sits behind the breast tissue on bone. Also, in order for the bra to be able to provide maximum support it needs to fit snugly around the body, so that the band doesn’t slide around. I promise this bra will do the job if the size is correct! Angenetta from TX

I love the pretty colors and fit of this bra. It is very comfortable to wear. I agree with the other reviews that the lace and seams show through, limiting what I can wear with it. My other complaint is that it squeaks while I am moving. Alicia from USA

Elomi has yet to let me down. This is the third style I have tried from Elomi, and I love them all. This one gives me great support. The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars is because the fabric is a bit scratchy where the underwire sits. I imagine this will soften with a few washes. Carissa from Michigan City

This bra comfortably supports, and I was very glad to find it when my previous favorite style was discontinued. I did find that I needed to go down a band size and therefore up a cup size, but with that adjustment, have found a style that works really well. I would really like to see that same style in a completely smooth (t-shirt) fabric. Janice from Charlotte, NC

Finally! After 2 years of searching for a well-fitting bra, I've finally found the Caitlyn. I was fitted a few years ago at a lingerie shop with a 38G. I knew the frame was just too big. So then after much trial and error, I ended up with Goddess 6080 in a 36J. It fit pretty well......the underwires were against the sternum, but I still felt the band was too big. And the 6080 only starts with the 36 inch band. I was always pulling it down in the back. I finally tried the Caitlyn in a 34H and the fit is about the best I can get, I think. I'm not adjusting it all day and the cups are full coverage which I prefer. I just wish there were more full- figured underwires available in the 34 inch band. So don't give up trying to find the best fit for you. It could take a while! Mary from NJ
