I thought this bra was just average. I ordered it along with the Elomi demi cup bra and that was terrible as far as support. This was just a step up from that. I tested it out by wearing it for a day however which is the only reason I'm not returning it. I really think the bra makers, if they are going to make for large breasts, need to make them with wide bands underneath. Even if I have to pay more for them, it would be worth it but as it stands now it like they don't even recognize that there is a difference in the need for support. I'm also not a fan of underwire but it's like you can barely find anything in large sizes that don't have underwire. They dig, are uncomfortable and it would be differenct if for all the headache they cause you were getting something in the way of support but it's just not there. Check out the Enell bra people! Saw it a few years ago on Oprah when she was talking about working out and she swore by it and so do I. I only wish they would make pretty bras for everyday wear or even for when you want to look nice for your husband but they are sports bras and are very functional. Will have to keep wearing them until the other companies figure out that large breasted people still want to look pretty & feminine. Make them with a very wide band you companies!!
As I mentioned before, no bra will give you the support you're looking for if you're in the incorrect size (and sight unseen I’d bet you’re not in the right size).
Also you definitely wouldn’t need such a wide under-band if all the components of the bra were working together as they should (by that I mean band, cups and straps) to give you proper support.
If you're accustomed to wearing their sports bra, I’d urge you to try some of our wire-free bras, which are pretty and comfortable, and in the right size will definitely give you the structural support you want:
You might like Keira 6093, it's the soft cup "sister" to 6090. It has the same shimmer satin fabrication with a sheer top cup for that bit of glamour.
For super support try Alice 6040, a fuller coverage bra built on an M-frame for perfect bust separation. This all-over French lace bra features a semi-opaque top cup for a lighter look.
And our Elomi Caitlyn 8033 might work for you too –a gorgeous satiny bra with a sheer, floral embroidered top cup.
Lola, most of all I would encourage you to experiment with sizes for that perfect fit, as all brands will fit differently.
