The cups on this model ran a bit small on me. The center did not sit against my sternum like my other elomi and Goddess underwires do. It's still a comfortable bra but sizing was a bit wonky for me. Lynda from Nebraska

Came across the Etta and it fits perfectly. So comfortable just the right amount of balance in construction, not too sturdy but not too flimsy either and the wires don't poke me. It just sit's right when wearing. This bra holds my breasts without molding them like some and the underarm sides don't come up too high. The straps are good and stay put, but don't dig in etc. The wires/front don't push too hard on my breast bone either unlike some, as I mark/pain very easily so I'm always mindful when trying bra's out. The design is great with colors and fabric. Must admit this bra is just so comfortable that I can wear it all day without any issues. But, in a nutshell this bra does more than what it says on the packet and get's a perfect 10 from me, because it's not too expensive, provides great support, and washes well (handwash only). Looks great! DDtop from London, UK

The garment quality was great, but the band width seemed smaller than the 42s I bought in other models such as Persia. Deborah

I ordered this bra in a 38H even though my old bras were 38G. I'm glad I got the bigger size. Fits well, nice support, wires don't bother me much unless it has been on all day. corinne from USA

This is so comfortable! I love the band less concept. Normally in this size there is always banding and it is not very comfortable. Looking to purchase more. Amy from OK

Elomi EL 8840...Most comfortable bra I have worn in years. Perfect separation.Center wires actually rested on breastbone. No poke under arms. Serious uplift. Fit was so good there was actually NO pressure at shoulder straps. Sadly this bra's cups are so "torpedo" shaped that it is unwearable in public.... by me. May work for a taller, longer armed woman. Took away 1 star from this great bra because I am very disappointed. Auntie Fran from Chicago,IL,US

Not my style. I prefer bras that lift and push together. Creates a slimming effect. This bra, while it fit, pushes them wide and to the side.. Also flattens them a tad. Won't buy again, but will keep in the rotation when I need a bra that fits, but don't care if I look like a football player that day. Lamatresa from California

I have a lot of breast tissue and this bra fits them comfortably without spillage. I can wear it all day long without discomfort. It does tend to stick out of scoop neck shirts, but would be great with t-shirts and blouses. I give this bra two thumbs up. Julie from Austin, TX

I really wanted to like this bra. It looks nice and is convertible, but it just wasn't comfortable. The fabric was scratchy and the underwires were uncomfortable. I'm not sure why -- almost like they were the wrong shape.

Elomi Response: Thank you for trying Elomi Etta, EL8840. This style is a top seller in the Elomi assortment and perfect for a petite frame. Washing the garment prior to wearing it will soften the fabric. The underwire placement on the side should rest on the bone not in soft breast tissue. An alternate multiway and very supportive style to consider is Elomi's Rita Underwire Multiway Banded Bra. In addition, please refer to the HerRoom section on Bra Fitting Center to ensure you're selecting the correct band and cup size! Julie from Colorado

After a long search for a bra model that fit, I settled on the elomi Etta (EL8840). I tried on different sizes, and kept a 36J and sister size 38HH. My underbust measurement is between 34-35" depending on how tight I pull the measuring tape. (Full bust is 46".) I found that while on the loosest settings, the 36 band was initially too tight and the 38 band was too loose but the cups on both fit great. I kept both sister sizes to test because I liked how the bra separated and supported my breasts. After several wearings, both bands loosened. The 36 band is now perfectly comfortable on the loosest setting. The Etta seems to be well made and sturdy. I personally find the wires on the sides of this bra about 1" too tall. The side wires dig into my flesh and push the bra down my sides. I have gently bent the wires at the sides away from my body and it has helped a lot but still isn't perfect for my particular body shape. . . but is the only bra that I found that came close to working for me. I also find the wires a little too wide for my breast base. I like that there's an open area in the bra between the breasts. I feel that this helps with air circulation for my close-set breasts. I'm glad to have found a bra that will hold my breasts in place and take the strain off of my neck, shoulders and back. I have decided to order more Etta bras in 36J because once worn a few times, the band is a perfect fit. Darlene from central Pennsylvania

I think this bra is my new favorite Elomi. The girls are up and perky, and the cups give a great shape. Justine from Los Angeles

A bra in my size with a "J" hook, unheard of. I love, love, love my bra! A 32H would have probably worked better, but for now this 34H rocks. I'll see how much the band stretches over time, and perhaps a 32H may be an option the next time. Can hardly wait to try out the "J" hooks with my racer back tops. Sissum from Anchorage AK

Finding a bra that is supportive in a 38J is hard to do! This bra has excellent support. I love that the wire in the middle isn't as high as most, I hate when they poke through between my breasts when I sit down. I will be purchasing this bra again! The only down side, it is a bit scratchy when you first where it, but what new bra isn't! ricottapieforever from Hagerstown, IN

The wires are narrow, and the lacing on the gore is very irritating. But I do love the options of having a nude or black bra. Becky from ANACORTES

Well constructed, medium weight materials. Cup size was small, but the band size was right, so returned for a larger cup. Hopeful of a good fit when the new one arrives. Jenn from Elko, NV
