This bra fit nicely but the Prima Donna bra I ordered was much more comfortable. If I didn't order the Prima Donna Menton full cup bra at the same time I probably would keep this one. R.N. from Norcross

Very comfortable, band size runs one size too big compared to the Goddess bras I've bought in the past...I returned one of the ones I ordered to get a smaller band size. Sharon from Clearwater, FL

I can't wear this bra. I tried it in 42 F. Cup size was fine but my ribs felt crushed (despite having 42s that fit fine and having 40s that don't crush like this 42). Even my sternum felt crushed and I felt like I couldn't catch my breath. And, after wearing it for about 15 minutes, it started digging into my armpits. So, I exchanged it for a 44E. The cup was a touch small and the crushing and digging were barely improved. So, why am I giving it two stars instead of one? This bra *absolutely* lifts and separates. No possibility of drifting toward the uni-boob look.

Elomi Response: Sounds like one of two things – “too much” bra in size or in styling; It may be too big of a band or cup or simply “too much” bra in the styling. I would suggest Elomi 8001, the Cleo bandless low plunge. steph from Calif

OMG it fits. I have such a problem with finding a cup that fits and straps that are not set so far apart I feel they were designed for a line-backer. Honestly I don't have a lot of room on the front of my body for the girls and this bra lifts AND separates them. This is the first time the center part of the bra is sitting flat against my chest. The result is I actually appear smaller. Yea! Before I found this bra the only other bra I could wear is the Wacoal 85122 Elegance Hidden Underwire Minimizer. I'm so happy to have found another "pretty" option. Thanks Elomi! Majick from Jersey Shore

Gift for my mother, I already own it. It is so supportive and very, very pretty. The red is a jewel ruby red, and the seams on the bottom part of the cup are so supportive. The top of the wire on the side of the bra does not jam up into your armpit. I have had no trouble with pinching or rolling up. Seems perfect, I will buy in other colors. Barbara from Virginia

This is a VERY supportive bra. Keeps everything in and keeps it where it should be together. I wouldn't say it is uncomfortable- but the underwire is strong and tighter than other bras. Not good under t shirts as you can see the lace and it is raised lace. Have it in every color! Kate from Indiana

It almost fits! Better than any I've tried so far - a little too big on one side and not big enough on the other. The shape is really nice and it gives excellent support, and it's even pretty. So I shouldn't complain, BUT, it's made out of that unpleasant rough chafe-y stuff, and I really wish for padded straps, and I have to put something in the sides to keep the wires from digging in. The Goddess Smooth Simplicity is lots more comfortable although just as strong, but it doesn't come big enough, sigh.

Elomi Response: : If you like Goddess Smooth Simplicity, I suggest you try Goddess Keira, style 6090; it’s similar to elomi 8030 but with less lace and more satin fabric. Carol from Ann Arbor, MI

This is the 2nd one I have ordered and I love it! It is low enough in the front not to show if I wear a 'V' neck or lower cut top. Another big feature I like is that it holds me in on the sides and does not rub or itch anywhere. I will keep ordering this style until they change it again! Gail from Vero Beach/FL/USA

The Elomi concept seems to just push (I guess they'd call it "support") from below, but there is little support or enclosure in the cup. The bottom of the bra was the strongest underwire I've ever experienced, and it did hold tight, but the cups were just too soft. The girls were floating around and bouncing with every bump I hit while driving the car and I was very conscious of them loosely bouncing around as I walked around the house, just sort of sitting on that hard, rigid wire. The silhouette is also not flattering in my clothing, and the lace version was so scratchy I could see the marks on my abdomen and back for hours after I took it off. I soaked it for a day to see if the lace softened, but it didn't. Perhaps the fit of this bra meets some criteria for "proper fit" in the big Corset-lady bible but if it looks bad and feels worse, I will go back to my "incorrect" undergarments.

elomi Response: Thank you for your candid remarks. We at Elomi use the firmest possible support fabrics. So if you need a firmer fit, it could be either that you are not wearing the correct size, or that you need a bra offering a higher level of control. I would normally recommend a firmer control bra first, but this 8030 is already very firm, so perhaps you need a different size? If the cup is loose, you need a smaller cup size. If the band rides up at the back, you need a smaller band size. Bear in mind that if you reduce a band size, you need to increase a cup size to maintain the same cup volume. The firmest control of all is gained from bras with higher coverage at the centre front, so the Elomi underwired sports bra style 8040 will give you maximum control. You are at the small end of the full figure size range, so perhaps you don’t actually need a full figure bra at all, but would prefer something like our Savannah style 2152 from our full busted brand Fantasie. Style 2152 has great coverage for the full busted but has a lower center front and is lower under the underarm area. As for the lace scratching you, a few washings should eliminate this problem.

Good support and comfortable. I like the lower support around the sides so the wires don't cut into your underarms. Flower pattern can be see through some shirts. Not as much support as Panache but much more comfortable! Wendy

very pretty and comfortable bra, however, not good for traveling via air. Underwire set off alarm at airport coming and going and I had to be individually scanned on both occasions. One might keep that in mind and choose another bra to travel in. Unfortunately, that's the only bras I had packed. Sally from Chelsea, AL

Give excellent support. Underwire comes up a little high under the arm but I can get used to it. Really does separate "the girls". I don't often get that in a bra. Lynn from McLean, VA

Large size bras are definitely hard to find and one that fits well, even harder. This one is definitely on the right track. I have a lot of side breast tissue, so for me, the only down side of this bra is that the underwire is uncomfortable on one side. The straps fit nice and don't slide down the arm and the bra lays nice and flat between the breasts. Sandy from Virginia

This is a great bra! I had been wearing the Godess 5810 which fit perfect and supported "the girls" all day. This is the replacement for that bra. It took along time to find this bra and now that I have I will be buying more. The support and fit are great and I have my figure/waist back! Lift and separate to words that are hard to use in describing a bra when you are a 36GG with this bra you can say that all day. Debbie from Silverdale, PA

This bra fits beautifully. The one I had been wearing was discontinued, and they said this replaced it. I am so glad to find it. It sits flat against the chest wall,and gives great support. The underwire really does a great job, no strain on my shoulders. For full figured ladies like me, this is great. Jeannie from Grants Pass, Oregon, USA

Love this bra. Was crazy about it's predecessor the Kristin, and had despaired when Elomi stopped making it. This one is just the most comfortable, most supportive bra for big breasts ever. I particularly like the separation, without pushing too much to the sides. And I'm very grateful to In HerRoom for carrying the 38GG -otherwise very hard to find! Janet from Austin, TX

This is a wonderfully comfortable and very elegant bra. The embroidery on the upper half is just lovely, and the fit, for my very large size, superb. The center line comes exactly to my breastbone, and the cups fit very comfortably with no wrinkling or other issues. It is not advertised as a minimizer, but because it has a very natural, softly rounded look, it functions in a similar way. The only thing to be aware of is that the embroidery is a little bit dimensional. It will show a little bit under thin, close-to-the-body, knit tops. Other than that, it looks great under everything else I've worn it with. Gloria from Alexandria VA

For a larger endowed woman like myself this is the hands down best bra on the market! With my occupation I am constantly moving, twisting, bending, stooping, etc. I need a bra that will hold my bust in place at work and create a great shape in a dress after work. Elomi's plus size bra line does both in beautiful colors and designs. Kimberly from Cambridge, MN

As soon as I was fitted for this bra, I knew I was in love. The comfort combined with the look under garments is incredible. My fitter put a loose smock on me in the fitting room and I told her that she was my new best friend. I have been looking for a proper fitting bra for 10 years, tried mail order, tried discount stores and all to no avail. The "girls" now sit higher, I walk taller, and my confidence is up. I can't say "Thank you" enough. By the way...the bra is also pretty. All busty ladies should at least try this brand. You won't be sorry!!! LeeAnne from Sacramento, CA USA

At last a full figure bra that really lifts and separates. The first time I put it on I was sold. I have been shopping on the net for a bra for over a year now ordering and returning over and over. Look no more this is IT!! Sher from SUwanee, Ga. USA
