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!

Very comfortable bra. Band and cups are generous when compared to Panache New Melody (same size). I may go down a cup size for my next purchase of this bra. djh223 from Milroy/PA/USA

Okay...so I have the Freya sport bra after a return...my UCS is D7 (34GG) so I order this one in the same size...but no...a size too small in the cup...I need a 34H apparently. Seems like a nice bra, but why have Universal Cup Sizes if they don't run true to size? Cowgirl from Colorado

Over the years, I've tried on hundreds of bras - very rarely do I find one that fits properly and is comfortable. This one meets both requirements beautifully. After completing the Know Your Breasts survey, I chose this style with guarded enthusiasm. How could I find a bra online when I have so much trouble finding one in stores? Well, the survey works! This is the most comfortable bra I have worn in many years. As my breasts have changed over the years, I didn't really know what I was doing when trying on bras. And the store personnel I dealt with didn't know much either. Their measurements were always way off. DO THE SURVEY! You'll be amazed at the results! Michelle from United States

I already had two of these bras in grey. Was buying another to have. Because of the price I have I can only buy two at a time and that's still spending $110.00. April from Alabama

This is the perfect everyday bra! IT IS SO COMFORTABLE!!! It's very supportive, and gives you just the right shape. I have it in the champagne color AND the black color. Anyway, fantastic bra, good price, you should DEFINITELY get it if you have large breasts (above DDD, I'd say). I haven't tried any of elomi's t-shirt bras, but now that I own 4 of their bras and love each of them, I may buy one of those sometime soon too. Love this brand. DR from CA

This bra comes in pretty colors. This time I bought silver, just lovely for summer and year round. It's good support and day long comfortable. Very pleased with it. Will get more fashion colors as they become available. grannie annie from lawrence ny usa

I thought that I would really like this bra, and at first try, I did. But soon I was getting poked under the arms and chafed where the straps met my arms. It just wasn't as comfortable as the Libby (which seems to be my best bra so far). I've since learned that I might have been one cup size too large, and that might make some difference, but right now I'm not as interested in trying another Caitlyn as I am other styles.

Elomi Response: Marie- Thank you for purchasing Elomi 8030 in 36D10, we're so sorry it didn't work for you. Another great option Eva Underwire Bandless Bra EL8510 features a bandless underwire with less fabric under cups. Works well on all body types and is especially ideal for short-waisted or petite women. A newer style very similar to Libby is Rita Underwire Multiway Banded Bra EL8011. Rita is a beautiful, supportive bra that can be worn in multiple ways for versatile styling. The movable J hook converts into a racerback and it's available in 3 color choices.

It fits perfectly and holds the girls up and in. Because I am short, many bras cut into my underarms and the center underwires pop out. Not with this one! The shoulder straps tighten far enough. I love it! Judy

I measured as instructed, but found the cup size to be about 1 size too large. The support, coverage, and separation are great, but the very long underwire pokes into my armpits. I have gotten one cup size smaller, which seemed to relieve this issue. Chris from NH, USA

One strap keeps falling down and the narrow band around the bottom keeps rolling up. Perhaps I ordered the wrong size? I did measure first. Also, wish the underwire between breasts had a little softer fabric.

Elomi Response: Carol- Strap slippage is irritating and can be corrected by adjusting the shoulder strap & making sure you're in the correct band size. Please consult the Bra Fitting Advice Page on the Herroom website to help determine your corrrect band and cup size. Another great Elomi's style is Rita Underwire Multiway Banded Bra EL8011 which has a movable J hook that converts into a racerback, eliminating strap slippage. Carol from Shelby Twp , MI

I love the fit of this bra! The center rests on the breastbone, just as it should, and my breasts fit inside the cups. I now have three of this model and will continue to buy more. It's next to impossible to find great fit and comfort in a 38G--but this bra offers both. Audrey from Bellevue, WA USA
