At first the fabric felt very stiff almost to the point that I thought the bra was too small for me. However, after washing and wearing, it has become my current favourite bra. Only 4 stars because I'm not convinced that it's the best bra for my shape, but it's very comfortable anyway. Elizabeth from Illinois

The Betty is a very pretty, sexy bra. Unfortunately, for me, the cups run too small. I ordered a 34HH, and I had the quad-boob thing going on. (That's my size in other brands.) I was very disappointed that the bra did not come in a larger cup size; I would have sized up and tried again. Oh well. Kat from USA

Initially thought the fabric was too stiff, but it has softened over the last few months and is now my favorite bra. The fabric and style provides great support for a full 10 hour day, even with 38G cups. I did find that the band stretched a bit and will likely order one band size down next time. AD80 from US

This bra is fun, fits well, even halfway through pregnancy. Very pretty- I got the raspberry. It is quite sheer so if you have any reservations about that, this may not be for you. Desiree from Richmond/TX?USA

Found this bra through the HerRoom bra fit recs and it came very close to fitting. However the band is stretchier than I anticipated and I had to return it to find a sister size. Alison

I love the fit and coverage of the bra! It offers excellent support ad shaping and I never have to fuss with the cups during my day. The low underwire in front sits perfectly against my body. This is my favorite and most reliable bra, I have three of them! And they are all pretty too!! Jillian from New York

I am so disappointed in this bra. I LOVED the Valentina precursor to this style. But with the "Betty" they have used cheap, scratchy tulle instead of the soft material in Valentina...and it is extremely irritating to my skin. . KL from Chicago/IL/USA

This bra is really beautiful and sexy. The plunge is really great for low cut dresses and tops. I have only wore this bra twice and I do find the under-wire slightly irritating, but I feel that this will go away after a few more wears and washes. Overall, this bra gives excellent lift and support as well as some hot cleavage! C from SLC

Love the fit. Extremely light weight bra with good support. I find the netting a little irritating by the end of the day but others say that disappears with time. Kacee from Harpers Ferry, WV

I am a universal size D9 in other Elomi bras, but this one's cups seem to run a little smaller. I ordered my usual size - 34HH (universal D9), but the cups were just a little too small. I had a little bit of spillage over the top, which pushed against the pretty lace detail across the top, making it very visible under shirts. I knew if I just went up a cup size, it would be fine. I was sad to see that I was at the largest cup size already for this bra. I am disappointed not to have such a pretty plunge bra and will have to return it. Rachel from NC

Ordered the right size, but bra was way to small.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry to hear that the bra was too small for you. Please see our Bra Fitting Advice Page to see if you are wearing the correct size. M from Vidales

This bra fit really well. I honestly really loved it for most of the day, but by the end of the day the love story had worn off a little bit. I generally have a 'must be lined' policy for all bras, but thought that I would give this a go since it was so pretty. I will be returning to me policy though, as after about 6 hours of wearing this bra my nipples felt a little raw. I have VERY sensitive skin, so I am sure that my issue will not extend to most customers. Sarah from Fort Morgan

Great bra, really cute in black and I'd love to have the other colors as well. As with my other Elomi bras, it wasn't all that comfortable until I washed it. 4 stars instead of 5 because I wish it gave me more of the rounded shape I like. It's probably more because of my breasts rather than the bra though. Rachel from Louisiana

The fit is very good. I thought it might be itchy but it is not. I love Elomi I think it's the best fitting bra out there! Karen from River falls

Love this bra! At first I was worried the fabric would be itchy but it's actually quite comfortable, and the fit is great. It really lifts the girls up and keeps them contained. Nice to find something in my size that makes me feel sexy. I'm looking forward to getting this in other colors. Cassie from Wisconsin

I absolutely LOVE the way this bra fits, and the support is unbeatable. The material is rough to the touch, but I can deal with it to have my boobs up where they belong! Plus this bra is completely adorable. Jackie from Ohio

The band is very comfortable, and the cups have plenty of support. The elasticized top edge also really helps, since my no-longer-young-but-still-fabulous boobs are more hollow at the top than they used to be. The Know Your Breasts bra finder did a great job! Wendy from San Antonio, TX, USA

The things I like: the all over mesh is very stiff which gives great support. (Likely a drawback for sensitive skin though.) It is pretty and playful and comes in good colors. I don't like the fact that the band-less bra rolls up along my ribs (I have the same issue with 40E - Elomi Asia 3913). I need more cup volume than the Betty offers, but not a wider set wire or cup, so I likely won't try on a larger size.

Vendor Response: Lynn- Elomi EL8170 Betty frame is banded & sexy, universal enough to wear as a basic and very supportive from the tulle fabrication it's made with. Washing Betty a few times will soften up the tulle. The Stoop, Swoop & Scoop Test on the Herroom website is a great tool to help insure your breast tissue is properly distributed into the cup. Make sure "Not" to pull down on the underwire after putting your bra on. This misplaces the bottom of the underwire which should be resting where the breast tissue meets the chest wall. Please consider trying Caitlyn Underwire Side Support Bra EL8030 or Rita Underwire Multiway Banded Bra EL8011. Both styles are banded, a fuller cup and Rita has a J-hook that converts this style to a racerback. Lynnwords from Oregon
