I was fitted for this bra at a good old fashioned store that sold only bras, and not the ones typically available everywhere. The older ladies retired and the store closed and it’s been hard to find the bra I found so comfortable and a perfect fit. And now I found HerRoom. This bra is supportive without wires so it’s comfortable for long hours. And it supports with only 3 hooks in the back unlike other bras for larger sizes which have 4 or more hooks covering much of your back. Straps are comfortable. Fits perfectly. Love this bra.

I ordered a cup size that was too large, as was the band. I have gained weight and am still trying to get the right size figured out! Anyway, I can’t give a fair assessment of the overall fit except to say that the cups seemed very wide and flat, which might have been okay if they were the right size for me. But what really stood out to me was an internal cup sling/support which would have been a great concept except that the material was extremely rough and scratchy. Based on that alone I’m not going to try a smaller size.

Elila Response: We have unique bra sizing. We recommend adding 3-4" to your rib cage measurement. So if you measure 33", you would start with a 36 band size. For band sizes 36 and up, you should go up a band size and down 2 cup sizes. (e.g. 36I(D6) would try a 38G(D4)). Gillian from Colorado USA

Love this bra!. Been wearing this style for several years. Great support for large heavy breasts. My only complaint would be all the embroidery on the cups. it shows through t-shirts and any top that clings, I wish it was just smooth material, but still a really good supportive bra. The straps are rigid which also helps with support. I have always followed the sizing guide for fit , and the bras always fit right. Well worth the price! PB from Las Vegas, NV

Uncomfortable

HerRoom Response: Depending on how your bra feels uncomfortable, you may need to launder it a couple times to make the fabric softer and less tight. Please visit our Lingerie Care page for tips on washing your lingerie. M

Pretty bra but could not even put band hooks together way to tight. Am a 42B but most A cup bra's fit and feel better. The cup size looked right.

Elila Response:  The best way to get your band measurement for an Elila bra is to wrap the tape measure over the top of your chest, around your back and under your arms.  Otherwise try taking your diaphragm measurement and adding 3 – 4”.  Abby from CT

This is a quality bra. Unfortunately I found it was too small in the cup so I will be exchanging for one cup size up and see how that fits. Sally

I ordered my usual size -- but went up a cup size. Couldn't even get it on.

Elila Response: The Elila brand uses the +4 sizing method. That means you would take your underband measurement and add 4" to get your band size. If you measure a 37, we would suggest a 40 or 42 band. Maureen

Elila1301 is a great minimizer. My 36E holds me up and looks great in my clothing. I’ve worn longline bras for ages. However, this is the first style of a short line that gave me the support needed for a full figure. I would recommend this bra and will definitely purchase again. H from Harlem USA

The cup was too big. I have since ordered an A cup and the one bra that I did receive fits well. I have ordered another one exactly the same as of yesterday.

Elila Response: We are glad to hear that the "A" fit to your required needs. Often it takes a couple of sizes to try to get the best fit. Sandra

This garment was itchy. The seams show through your clothes. If it was a different material and maybe if the seams didn't show through then it might be a good bra. Not for me.

Elila Response: We suggest washing purchased garments before wearing to remove fabric finishes that may still be on the garment. We use seams in designing our garments in order to achieve supperior support and uplift. If you are looking for a soft hand and no seams we would suggest Elila Molded Softcup Spacer Bra 1803.

This is an all around great bra. Very pretty, good support for a soft cup, even for heavy breasted women-1303 has a little more support. Very happy that I found these. I just started wearing these so I am not sure how long they will last, but they seem well made and sturdy. Con the side stays are too long for us shorter ladies. They should be cut 1-1/2" shorter. I really hope that the manufacturer starts producing an equally good soft cup for shorter women. They are the only manufacturer that I have found that fits a pendulum breastfed woman. B from OH, USA

These are high quality, well made bras. I have a hard time finding bras that fit perfectly, are comfortable, and hold me in place. Others in the past I would buy & like would end up getting discontinued. I hope this brand/style is around for a long time. They are pricey but worth it. The only thing I don't like is the plastic strip insert under each armpit, I actually cut a small slit in fabric and remove it. Angie from PA

Should of got a DD, but I already washed them. Does lift and separate. Other times I tried 40D, 40DD, and still leaves deep dents in my shoulders. I like the crossover in the front where the middle is higher then under the breast themselves.

Elila Response: Our bodies fluctuate and because of that before purchasing any new garments it's a good idea to double check your measurements for the best fit. If your straps are digging into your shoulders either the back is too loose or the straps are too tight. If you can fit more than 2 fingers under your band go down a band size and up a cup.

This bra has great lift and support. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because there is one spot on each side that tends to rub. I could also be a little longer so that it covers your ribs bad won't roll. Melody from Mertztown PA

Now that the Goddess 304 is no longer made I purchased two of these. The shape of the bust is not natural or flattering (pointy outwards) the under band digs under the bust due to the poor design of the inverted "v" at the center front, straps dig in. Yeah, it can be worn in public, but it's not flattering. AND it's very overpriced.

Elila Response: It sounds like the bra is a bit too tight for you and that the straps are being pulled too tight. If you would like a softer look with a lot of support, try our Molded Softcup Bra 1803 Pam from Worcester, MA U.S.A.

Cups were gappy. Item returned for a smaller size (38A).

Elila Response: Our cups run full for each size, so if you find that when you measure yourself and you are in between cup sizes it’s best to go smaller and not bigger. JMS from PA

I have always been cup size B, even though I am a woman of size. However, I found this bra cup to be too big. As a result the cup bunches up and you can see the outline of the bulge I will continue to order from your company, but will try another brand.

Elila Response: This style has a full cup with a lot of coverage so it may be that it is not right for you since you are also petite - too much bra for your frame. Alice from Arlington Hts, IL

Much too tight around the chest, while cups too big. Exchanging for a 42B, although had previously wore a 38C and wanted a better fit around the chest.

I will be returning the bra. I loved the old Goddess style 504, but it's been mfg. discontinued. It one doesn't work for me, I didn't realize that I already had one when I ordered it. The cup wrinkles and shows through blouses. I don't think a smaller size cup would work. So I'm on the search for something to replace my favorite. I think the issue might be cotton vs micro.

Elila Response: It depends how long you have had your previous bra and how you have laundered it over the years to determine the evolution of the fit. It does sound like your bust size has gone from a C to a B cup. Cynthia from Yuba City, CA, USA

It was not comfortable, there was not enough elastic in the straps to make it easy to get off and on, the wide straps are cumbersome, I did not like the bra.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. The straps are designed without elastic to give you maximum support. As for the straps being wide, we are surprised by this comment - the straps are a traditional 3/4" wide. Nora from glendora
