I currently love this bra. It is supportive and gives a nice shape without being too high. I think it runs slightly small in the rib size, but they do stretch out a bit over time. Cheryl from Columbus Ohio

I have purchased and worn many Elomi bras. This is the only one that fit so poorly. The bra was too tight, cups did not fit properly, and it was very difficult for me to remove it. Too bad I wasted my money. Now I have to save again for a new bra.

Elomi Response: We suggest going up a cup size in this bra for a better fit. Sugar Maple from san Diego, Ca

Cups run a bit small. I've worn a 34GG in other Elomi products, but this one was just a bit snug. VERY happy with the 34H! Ordered bras in both nude and black. This is as close to a smooth t-shirt bra WITH great support as you're going to get! Just order up a cup size... Teresa from Michigan

Band fit true to size. Cups seemed to run a bit small. I'm going to reorder but going up a cup size to see if this bra will work. Seems to have smoother cups than the Cate / Caitlyn bras that I've already purchased. Looking for a good SMOOTH t-shirt bra...

HerRoom Response: We suggest trying Bijou EL8722, if you're looking for an everyday t-shirt bra. Teresa from Michigan

This bra fit well, but after having it for 2 months the wire is coming out of the side. I washed it by hand so it was not over washed or over used.

Elomi Response: It is very important to rotate your bras, especially if you are larger than a D cup. It is best to have at least 7 bras in your wardrobe to rotate through so your bras have optimal time to rest. Please check out HerRoom's Lingerie Wardrobe Guide for additional advice.

Absolutely LOVE this bra! First time for bandless, my go-to now. Other Elomi this size don't fit well: underwires come all the way to my back, & don't contain my breasts. I saw a stylist comment that these cups are deeper with shorter wire. Fits beautifully, laying flat, great shape & containment! Cheryl from Colorado

I wanted a bra that was secure, modest, & a racerback/convertible. Two out of three ain't bad. I work with school-age kids so I've got to be comfortable, covered up, & I don't have time to worry about the way my bra does its job. This bra keeps my breasts where they belong. I don't pull at the straps or readjust the band throughout my hectic day. The bra is unpadded, so I have a set of washable pads that I can slip into each cup for those moments where I may look "cold." Unfortunately, I'm still searching for a comfortable racerback/convertible bra. I found the j-hook impossible to fasten unless you're a contortionist and you hook it first & then slip it over your head, which is ridiculous & painful...if I wanted a pullover bra, I would have bought one. There needs to be more length to the straps to make the bra comfortable as a convertible because the band at the curve of the straps puckered out so badly that it will never look smooth under any shirt, ever. The designers need to go back to the drawing board in that respect. Keep at it...once thats figured out, I'll never buy any other bra. For now I'm still looking. Kathryn from Seattle, WA

I wear Elomi brand almost exclusively. I have lost some weight so I have been trying to figure out my new size. After a couple of sizes and brands I have settled on Elomi's ina 36FF size. This model in the 36G was a bit uncomfortable as the underwires rubbed against my arms.

Elomi Ettta bra -- compared to other Elomi bras -- runs a little tight in the bandl. I have a few Elomi bras so I know what I am talking about. Nevertheless, I love this style and could not wait to wear it. Will order larger size next time because it's so pretty. Bregiphi from Indiana

Decent bra- really only kept it for the converter option. It doesn't give as much support for a larger cup and kind of squishes them down to a weird shape.

This is a very nicely made convertible bra. Usually when switching to a different strap configuration you have to un-do straps and hopefully get everything put back into place correctly to avoid a mishap while wearing, but this one has an ingenious little hook on one strap that connects with an eye on the other strap to easily create a racer-back. Very smart! Deanne from Florida

the band size is really small, I usually wear between a 34 or a 36, but the 36 in this brand is way too tight.

This is an amazing bra especially if you're short (band less). When I first started with Elomi I got 3 different styles, one of each because that's all the lady had left. This style was my hands down favorite of the 3. I'm very excited to have 2 sand colored ones now Kimberly from Knoxville TN USA

Best bra I've ever had. I used to have a problem with underwire coming up too high on my chest. This bra is cut lower, so problem solved. It's well made, and I wash it in the machine. I hope they never discontinue this bra! Grace from Germantown, TN US

Elomi bras are incredible! Bra shopping has always been terrible for me as my weight tends to fluctuate and many stores do not carry plus size bras. I used the KYB bra finder and all of the tools Her Room provides to find the perfect fitting bra. Previously, I purchased a 44FF in another Elomi style and it is great, but I wanted to try the suggestion of going down a band size and up a cup size. My twins have never looked better and I look ten pounds lighter! The j-hook is fantastic and now I can wear racerback styles without feeling forever frumpy. Dana from Portland, OR

This was a re-order for me. I have had it in black and nude both were in need of replacement. I need a bra that is 'short in the wire' as I am short waisted and this one works well enough, but not as flat in the cleavage as others I was able to get this time around. It is quite comfortable as I found all Elomi to be for me. NikiR from Dallas, Tx

Band was too small - considering sizing up to a 40...

elomi Response: Kendra, all styles have fit nuances that are slightly different, depending on the frame and fabrication used, so it's a good idea to be flexible about your size. Fortunately Elomi offers so many styles in so many cup and band sizes, it's easy to find your perfect fit. it sounds as if you might be more comfortable in a 40 band. Kendra from Brentwood, CA USA

This bra was not quite as comfortable as I had hoped. It seemed to run a bit smaller making it somewhat constrictive after wearing it throughout the day.

elomi Response: Diane, it's difficult to advise, as you don't mention what you're comparing this style to, and what felt small, the cups or the band. Fortunately Elomi offers so many sizes in all styles, it's easy to go up or down in the cup and the band to find your perfect size. Please refer to Tomima’s Fit Guide to help you.

LOVE this bra! I have 3 of them (2 nude and 1 black) and hope they never discontinue them. Since I am short, 5'2", and curvy with a bit of a belly, the bandless style is perfect and comfortable. The underwire curves to the back so that it doesn't press into my armpit. I love the J-hook in the back, I wish every single bra came with this option. It takes the stress off my shoulders and neck and I have fewer headaches and less neck and back pain. The shape is smooth and rounded and not matronly, which is frequently a problem in larger sizes. I find that Elomi bands run big, so I go down a band size and up a cup size and the fit is perfect. LGPA from Phoenix, AZ, USA

I looked at the bra and its tag several times before trying it on. Next to my other elomi bras, it just looked small. it felt and looked over 1/2 cup small- overboob bulged at the top edge, and the center was well off of my sternum. In comparison, elomi's Betty, Louisa, Maggie, and Rita all fit me beautifully.

Elomi Response: Etta should fit the same as the styles you've mentioned, but as you know, there are nuances to every style. They will all fit you in a slightly different way, therefore it's important to be flexible about your size as it will vary from brand to brand, and from style to style. It's much like buying a pair of jeans. You might simply have to go up a cup in Etta. Lee from Springfield VA

This bra is amazing! The shaping is wonderful and it's very comfortable. I'm a 40J in most other brands, but Elomi bands run big on me, so I size down a band and up a cup and it's perfect. Being petite and large breasted, it's soooo hard to find the right bra. This doesn't poke me in the armpit or press into my ribs uncomfortably. I'm so in love with the J-hook in the back that allows me to convert this. It's expanded my wardrobe options considerably! Buy this bra! I hope Elomi makes this bra forever! Regina from Phoenix, AZ

This bra is way too small for the size they say it is. Order at least one size bigger.

Elomi Response: Joyce - Thank you for trying Elomi Etta, EL8840 in 36D10. Please refer to the HerRoom video on "How to Measure for a Bra" to help determine your correct band and cup size. Another Elomi style to consider is elomi Cate Underwire Full Cup Banded Bra EL4030 in 36D10. Cate is a fuller coverage bra that might be better suited for your breast tissue.

This bra provides good support for the bumpy roads. I like that it doesn't come up as high under my arms as other bras. Unfortunately when I tried to order another one I couldn't, it said discontinued. I'm very disappointed. Joanie from California
