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

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

Fits great! Brings breast out front instead of flatting them across the chest. Great lift and great to wear low cut shirts with. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Did not give the support I need to feel comfortable

Elomi Response: Sylvia-Thank you for giving Betty, Elomi EL8170 3 stars after finding it isn't the bra for you. Additional information on how Betty fit you would help guide us to a possible style better suited for you. Please consider referring to HerRoom's Bra Fitting Advice Page to ensure you're wearing and ordering the correct size. Simply changing the band and cup size can change the fit of a bra altogether.

I was fit at a local lingerie story that specializes in fitting. I went from a 40C to 38FF and it's made all the difference. They put me in two different Elomi bras - I bought two of this one. Works well and I love it. Vanessa from Austin, TX, USA

OnceI got my measures and calculated my REAL bra size (thought I was a 38-36 DDD for years when in reality I'm a 34 G!) I ordered this bra. I was scared because I'd never tried a bra near that size and for a first try this bra is rather expensive. But it was totally worth it, because this bra fits me beautifully! There is plenty of support, the plunge lets you show more cleaveage if you want to and it's very girly and gorgeous! I cannot recommend it enough. Maria from Panama

I absolutely love this brand of bra! The first brand I have found that is consistently comfortable and gives great support, plus actually had pretty designs. I've always complained about not being able to find "pretty" bras in my size, but now that is no longer a problem. Highly recommended! Worth every penny Sarah from Savannah/GA/USA

I love this bra! I have it now in almost every color offered so far. It lifts the girls enough, without pushing them to my chin. It is a plunge, but I do not fall out while leaning over, like some plunge. I have trouble with straps slipping, and this bra stays on my shoulders better than most. Its also very pretty. I also like that it is very light weight and cool in warm weather. Now if they would just offer a white, or nude! I found this bra to be pretty true to size for large size. Two suggestions- if you find its shape too pointy or tight at the top of the cup, go up a cup size. Second, the fabric may seem a bit scratchy out of the tissue, but after a wash or two, it softens right up. Cheryl from Ohio

This is my 4th Betty. The fit is perfect. If you haven't used Her Room's method of determining cup size you will find yourself very happy you did. Armed with the knowledge Her Room gave me, my first perfectly fitting and comfortable bra is a joy. Jeanie from Lexington, KY, USA

It can be so hard to find beautiful bras that support and shape as well as this does in my size (38G). I've worn the Elomi Caitlyn for a while, this gives a sexier look to curvy girls like me. Julia from Sacramento

I love this bra style. I have the red, black and now the pink. I'm glad they picked a lighter color this time. Fits very well & is very feminine. Makes the "girls" look there best. I would highly recommend. Susan from Homer Glen, IL USA

Love love love this bra. Straps stay up on narrow shoulders. Very pretty, but importantly, also very comfortable. Great support, even with the plunge. My favorite bra . Got the navy in 2 sizes, then the blue and now will order the rasp and baby pink. Now if they could just make a white or cream. Just to let you larger gals know, if you look pointy, go up a size, and it fits much better. Cheryl from Columbus ohio
