I had ordered this brand and size bra and needed a couple more. These bras have given me the best fit for the first time in many years. Carol from Gaston, Oregon, USA

I read so many reviews on different bras, looking for an underwire bra that would give my very large breasts good side support and lift, and not lump out under my clothes. I ordered this bra 2 times, in two different sizes, and it was just uncomfortable, even though it seemed to fit. The band felt comfortable, and my boobs weren't popping out anywhere. Underwires always seem to poke me in my upper arm, no matter what size I get, and it's so frustrating, because I want good support that also looks good. I will say this bra was pretty for a support bra, and seemed extremely sturdy and well constructed.

Elomi Response: Andrea- Caitlyn EL8030 is a full coverage frame with a full wire sweep A similar frame with a shorter wire sweep and better suited for someone with a "short upper torso" is Rita Underwire Multiway Banded Bra EL8011. This style can be worn multiple ways with a movable J hook that converts into a racerback. Andrea from Louisiana

Now Let me start off my saying I love how this bra makes me look. It brings the girls up to proper level and keeps them there all day. That being said I will never wear this bra again. Maybe I got it in the wrong size but it hurt so badly to wear that it chaffed until my skin was raw under my breast. It felt like that is where all the weight of the bra went. JD from Austin, tx

Fantastic webstie! I found the product I was waiting over a month and a half to be sent from a different store after they said it would come from the manufacturer. I purchased three Iona bras and yesterday one more. Wonderful company to purchase from. I shall be back to look for other products. Charlene from California

I have worn Elomi for a long time. This has been my style. It is all I wear. It fits perfectly for my body type( Apple) . I have had a very good experience with herroom and will shop again. Kat from Norlina , NC, USA

I bought this bra in a 36HH. OH MY GOD. It is one of the best fits I've ever had. I still find the side support to be a little much - the underwire pokes me in the armpit and I have some discomfort when I sit down no matter what - but the 36HH is my PERFECT size in elomi, and I wouldn't have known that if it weren't for HerRoom's universal sizing guidelines. It's the most comfortable bra I've ever worn. A'ishah from Lawrence, KS USA

Really like this bra! However, the fasteners are not on sturdy fabric. The hook dug into my back, and I see no way to reinforce that fastener area... It needs to be stronger/wider. Chris

I bought in my measured size, 36H but it did not work. I like to start hooking my bras on outer hooks and move in with wear, but with 36 I had to go all the way in and it just wasn't tight enough. The cup was small. I returned and got a 34HH and it's good. A little tight around my ribs but it'll be better after a couple wears. Like that it separates and center hits my sternum area! Great support Cass from USA

Very comfortable bra! I often reach for this bra above before any of the other ones that I have. Do not look to this bra for sassy and sexy, as it most definitely doesn't do either of those things. It also shows under thin clothes. It also doesn't provide any mouthwatering cleavage, unfortunately. Yet like I said, I will be reordering this bra! Ebee from Lagos, Nigeria

Beautiful bra! The best fitting bra I have ever owned! It supports and separates. I had to return the first one for a larger band size; the two hook just would not do for a full figure; it just wanted to roll. Exchanged it for a 44DD instead of the 42DD which is my correct measurement. It still wants to roll a little; but much better with the wider band. I do get a shoulder strap slide now and again. But the way it fits up front is well worth it. I love the way it lays flat against my sternum. Love Her Room! Love the Breast survey because it led me to the best fitting bra I have ever owned! Try it! Pam from Palmdale, CA

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

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

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)
