Elomi Response: Yes, the fabrication does soften with washing …adding a bit of fabric softener to the rinse water helps as well.
We generally use the same power-net in the band for most of our Elomi styles, so this band shouldn’t stretch out any quicker than your other Elomi bras. It’s possible that you actually need a smaller band size for the firm anchorage you’re looking for.
EL8120 goes to a D9 cup and you would need a 34D10 if you were to go down in the band. If you’re willing to try a bra with seams, our Abi Bandless Bra EL8100
is one of our favorites –and Abi goes to a D11 cup! Abi provides all the benefits of a seamed bra: Super lift, and very importantly, shaping. The seams are flat and virtually invisible under clothing.

Elomi Response: Susan-
Please consider elomi Smoothing Foam Underwire Bra EL1220 in 38 D-3. The cup construction is firmer, without adding
size, offers an amazing uplift with sweetheart neckline. Elomi 1220 was also featured in
Consumer Reports' Shop Smart magazine, in "The Perfect Bra for You," April 2012.

Elomi Response: Our elomi Smoothing Seamfree Underwire Bra EL3911 is another seamless option that is banded and offers medium coverage and great support with inner side sling. This style runs full so it's suggested that you go down in the band and cup. Order 36 D6.
