This is my first Elomi Caitlyn bra and I am very pleased with the fit and the support it gives. This is the best bra I have ever worn. It lifts and separates giving a very natural shape. I was even told that I looked smaller (which I very rarely hear!) The bra, in grape, is very pretty. I am ordering another in a neutral shade for wearing under lighter-colored tops.

Wonderful bra! Supportive, yet flexible. Side shaping is subtle, giving natural-looking lift. My only complaint is that the side elastic tends to roll. Sue from Virginia Beach

True to size and comfortable for all day wear. I have come back to this bra after trying several others. Deanna from Reedsville/PA/USA

I first tried this style about a year ago when shopping at a local specialty store. I don't think they fitted me correctly then, and over the past year I've lost about 30 pounds. I decided to order a 42HH from HerRoom (down a band size) and the fit in this size is great! I have never owned an underwire with a bridge that lies flat until I tried on this bra in the correct size. Very supportive, comfortable, and pretty as well. I will definitely buy this style again.

This is my second elomi Caitlyn side support bra and I enjoy it very much. It does carry my breasts more in front rather then on the side of my body. That is a comfortable feeling. Patricia from Holland

Pretty, reasonably good support, side support panels not very effective though, comfortable straps, runs at least a cup too small GiGi from Arkansas

A comfortable fitting bra at a reasonable price. Would have preferred one of the other bright colours but they were unavailable. NICOLE from BARBADOS

This is a lovely bra to look at and also quite comfortable. I had returned an earlier version with cups too large. The one I kept has very nice cup fit but I was a little disappointed that there is not more of an uplift. I don't think elastic straps are a good idea - 'wish they'd been less stretchy. Also the straps need to be definitely placed about an inch "inward" on the back or the back panels gap a bit. Jean from Oregon

I discovered elomi when I decided to get fitted for a bra. I was so happy to discover a bra that actually sat flat against my chest and was so supportive and pretty too. I have been very pleased with this bra compared to other bras except the underwire is always poking me in the underarm. Sadly I don't get to wear the low cut shirts on a saturday night like I used to. This is a no nonsense bra. The search for a good bra as a large breasted woman is very difficult.

This is officially the ONLY bra that fits me. This style is the only one that actually looks good under my clothing and gives me support. If they ever stop making this bra I will have to get surgery just to be able to walk around in public. Veronica from Philadelphia PA

I have been wearing this Elomi style for several years & find it to be the most comfortable & supportive bra I've worn as a full-busted mature woman. I love that it comes in pretty colors although they sell out quickly. I wish there were a seamless version that could be worn under tee shirts & silky knits. I've worn a couple of other styles, but always reach for Caitlyn as my "go to" bra. In general I find that the Elomi brand is well made & shapes nicely. D.E.W. from NYC

Great smooth and pretty material. Bra cup ran a little large for me. The cup had this extra lose material at the top of my breasts. Marta from Knoxville, TN

Very pretty bra and nice material. Agreed with other reviewer that even though I measured my size using HR great system the cup size was larger than expected. I had loose material at the top of the bra. I am trying different cup sizes to find the perfect fit for me as was suggested by HR. Marta from Knoxville, TN

I ordered my universal size...(D7) and the cup size in this model was too small...so I exchanged it for one cup size larger and it was too big. I am desperate, so I will keep them...I don't think their Universal sizing is very accurate and I always have to return for an exchange for some reason...but, I can't walk into a department store and buy a bra...so, oh, well. Being larger chested just stinks. :(

Elomi Response: Dolly, So sorry you're having difficulty finding the perfect size for your petite frame. How frustrating! Our Elomi line is for the voluptuous full busted women. A simple adjustment to the breast tissue in the cup might remedy the problems with your 34D7 in EL8030. Your "Bio" explains that you might also be a good candidate for our full busted/average frame Fantasie line. Our Fantasie Jana Underwire Bra with Side Support FL2831 is a perfect style to consider for your petite full busted frame. Please consider consulting the Bra Fitting Advice Page on the Herroom website. This guide will walk you through the steps to help determine your correct band & cup size. Dolly from Monument, CO

Straps not padded - uncomfortable. Support for an F cup needs padding.

Elomi Response: Sharon, Please visit the The Anatomy of a Bra Section on the Herroom website. A bra’s band is designed and engineered to carry the weight and thrust of your breasts. Section #8, Bra Straps define. "Whatever the style, bra straps are meant to act as stabilizers for the bra. At most, they should carry no more than 10% of the breast's weight." Please consider consulting the Bra Fitting Advice Page on the Herroom website. This guide will walk you through the steps to help determine your correct band & cup size. Sharon (pending 7.25.13)

I was very happy as the bra fit perfectly. I followed the guidelines for measuring and was very nervous about buying a bra online as it is hard enough at the store. So impressed when it arrived and it fits perfect. I am going to use HR in the future. Robby from American Fork, Utah

While I was very pleased with the fit of the bra, I still have an issue of my skin reacting to the material. I have tried several different bras made of different material with no success. The bra fit better than most of my other bras. Taking the questionnaire prior to purchase was really helpful! Karen from Monroe, WI

This is, without a doubt, the best bra I've worn in a long time--maybe ever. The fit was perfect. I took the quiz to tell me which bra was best for my needs and this was recommended. I'm so glad it was. Great support and lift and very, very comfortable. I'd consider it a bargain at twice the price. Couldn't wait to order more! Lisa from Charlotte, North Carolina

I appreciate the black color which I couldn't find at the store where I bought two other bras like this. This bra fits me well, actually goes back to my chest bone in the center, and separates the breasts well. I am pleased with this purchase and will likely buy from HerRoom again. Thank you!
