I have some other bras by this brand in the exact same size, but for some reason this one seemed smaller. The wire didn't come far enough under my arms and it ends up digging into me.

Elomi Response: Stacey- From the description of your frame, please consider trying Eva Underwire Bandless Bra EL8510. Tomima's Tip suggests "The underwires are shorter than other Elomi styles. This a great choice for women with shorter torsos. Please consider trying EL8510 in 38D-8. In addition, It might be that you’re not adjusting your breast tissue into the cups properly: Be sure to “swoop and scoop” your breast tissue from the back to the front into the cups. The back end of the under-wire should sit behind the breast tissue on your rib cage. This will make all the difference in how the bra fits, and most of all how it feels. Please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit to help you and "make sure you're purchasing the correct size." Stacey from Davison/MI/USA

This is the best supporting bra I have ever owned. The cups are very light. They stay smooth and don't show under my clothes. The support is very good on the sides although there is no boning there. Everything stays where I put it in the morning, so I don't feel like I have to re-adjust during the day. Very light and comfortable. Love it. Leslie from New Hampshire

This bra does give great support but, it gives a cone look to my girls and I don't like that I prefer a rounded look... I returned it and waiting to find something else, But remember everybody's body is shaped differently.. so every bra is not going to fit every women the same , If anyone is looking for bra that gives great support this one is good for support..... hoped I helped Katie from USA

I had bought the ELomi Caitlyn bra before but after gaining weight I tried the online quiz and found my size was different. Not realizing this was already a favorite bra I bought the raspberry (a great color!) in my new size and it fits sooo much better! No strap slippage, holds the girls up and side tissue in and looks pretty too! WHat more could I want? Marlene from Benicia

I read the reviews and some mentioned problems with fit. They were right! It's pretty but has big gaps under the arms. I tried adjusting straps and didn't help.

Elomi Response: Jane- Thank you for trying Elomi Catilyn, EL 8030 in 36D3. From the description of your frame and bust size, you might be more suited for our Fantasie line for the petite full busted. Please consider trying usanna Underwire Side Support Bra FL2402 or Jana Underwire Bra with Side Support FL2831, both styles offer great side support and lift. Susanna is particularly beautiful in Antique gold. Referring to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit will help you determine you correct band and cup size. Jane from Germany

This bra is true to size and happens to be my favorite, it's very comfortable and despite it being a very huge bra it's kinda sexy. I will always recommend this bra to big bust woman B. Johnson from Maryland

This bra is keeping everything where it belongs, which is generally the challenge when one is over-endowed. I like the fit and the colors. The stiff straps do produce a slight creaking sound with movement, but that's a small price to pay for a good foundation garment. Eileen from KY

This is a great bra. The straps are NOT elasticized so you don't bounce and the cups totally encompass you. I love that I've found this bra - I've bought several. CM from Dover NH

I am new to this brand. I usually wear Fantasie bras. Thought I'd try something new. I got this bra and the Madison Underwire Plunge Bra. I liked the Madison very much. Unfortunately this bra didn't work for me. The wire didn't sit flat on my chest. So I guess that means the cup size was small on me. I wear the same size in all of my other bras, but this one didn't work for me. I also didn't think it was particularly pretty.

Elomi Response: C.M. Caitlyn EL8030 is Elomi's #1 selling style for the full busted voluptuous frame. EL8030 is full coverage versus Elomi Madison EL8730 deep plunge style. An additional style similar to Madison is Betty, EL 8170 which is offered in several colors on Herroom. Always “swoop and scoop” your breast tissue from the back to the front into the cups. The back end of the under-wire should sit behind the breast tissue on your rib cage. This will make all the difference in how the bra fits, and most of all how it feels.

While this bra isn't pretty, it does support the girls. I have been buying it for several years now, simply because it is a great fitting bra. The lace does show if you wear a tight shirt, so be warned! Wendy from Las Vegas

I have finally found the right fit for both sides. I tried the 36HH, then 34HH and finally the 34J. No overspill on big side and no baggy look on the small side. Great support and comfort!!! All day I work I'm climbing, steering, shifting and unloading by hand, but what I'm not doing is ADJUSTING! Thanks! Joanie from Newman, CA

The straps are so wide in the front they kept falling off my shoulders. This bra would have much better support without elastic straps. Very difficult to find a large cup bra made for narrower shoulders.

Elomi Response: Suzie- Thank you for trying Caitlyn EL8030, Elomi's #1 selling bra. Often times when the shoulder straps are falling you may need to simply adjust yourself into the bra, making sure the band is resting low in the back. Another style to consider is Rita Underwire Multiway Banded Bra EL8011. This beautiful and supportive bra is offered in multiple color options and scalloped embroidered satin along the tops of the cups. It can be worn multiple ways for versatile styling with a movable J hook that converts into a racerback, a feature beneficial for narrow shoulders or strap slippage concerns. Please consider referring to HerRoom's Bra Fitting Problems & Solutions to offer more insight into Shoulder Strap Slippage. Suzie from Ny/ USA

This bra was one of recommendations made by the bra fit guidelines test. Although a bit hesitant, especially given recommended size was 3 cup sizes below the Goddess Rose bra that I usually wear, I decided to give it a try. I found the fit to be same as Goddess Rose, with good lift, support and separation. Cups have a smidgen more room than Goddess Rose, but not enough to be concerned about, which I think I prefer. The straps remain in place all day and it's very comfortable to wear - which means that it is not the first thing I throw off after walking through the door. I think what I like best is that the underwire lays flat all around and seems to hit all the right places for fit: no arm pit poking and all of breast tissue is inside cup. Overall, great fit.

This bra is more comfortable and gives me a better shape than any bra I have tried in years. The only thing that may make it more secure is a 3 hook closure and padded straps. Patricia from West Palm Beach

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 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
