The Elila bra that I wear is a back close longline with nice wide straps. It overlaps my high waist girdles to give a smooth unbroken line. It gives me a sensational shape for a mid 70's lady. I enjoy the look and fit, embroidered cups and strategic boning throughout. JP

It doesn't fit appropriately.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry to hear that this bra did not work for you. Elila has unique bra sizing. Please refer to our comment on the size chart where we suggest adjusting your traditional size for a better Elila fit. We recommend going up a band size and down two cup sizes. If you are typically a 44F, we recommend trying a 46D (D1). Rhoda

This item was excellent just too small for me. I will be purchasing the correct size in the future. The cup size was to small for me but I can tell its a really good bra. Just need to find my size. DLScott from Mississippi

Don't buy this bra!!! The sizing is way off. I followed Her Room measurements and still this bra couldn't fit me. Way too small.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry to hear that this bra did not work for you. Front close bras are tricky, we suggest going up a band size and down two cup sizes in this style. If you have a fuller tummy try going up two band sizes and down one cup size. Tootsie from Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A.

I ordered a size a little larger than normal. The bra itself is a very nice bra but it is about 4 inches from being able to fasten in the front. I have a bra I can't wear and I can't return. My other long line I have is 48 DD and it fits just fine.

HerRoom Response: Anything front close is always a bit trickier than a regular bra since you're pushing everything forward instead of backward. We suggest going up one more band and down a cup. Maggie from 46112

This is the worst "sized" item I have ever purchased. I normally wear either a 40 or 42 C. I ordered a 42C the first time and it was nearly 4" from closing. So I sent it back and ordered the 46. Guess what? When I tried the 46C on, it was 4" from closing too! I double-checked to see if the sent me the same size. No--it was a 46C. I do not recommend this item.

Please refer to our comment on the size chart where we suggest adjusting your traditional size for a better Elila fit. We recommend going up a band size and down two cup sizes. If you are typically a 42C, for Elila we would recommend trying a 44A. Unfortunately this style is not offered in that size, we suggest trying Carnival Full Figure 3/4 Longline Bra 710. Shelly

I have been wearing these bras for 10 years now. They are the best you can find, but I am desperate for some that accommodate short waisted women. I never hook the last 2 hooks so I don't get the support I actually need. Shirley from Arizona

I have worn this bra before and was pleased with it then. This bra was harder to fit. I like this bra more the more I wear it, also it was very scratchy at first but that washed out. It would be nice if the back behind my armpits came up higher so I wouldn't have bulges there. I appreciate that this bra is made of very strong fabric and doesn't stretch out over time like almost all other bras I've worn and that is the main reason I shop this company. It does an excellent job of lifting and holding up without discomfort no matter how long my day is. Eleanor from Youngstown

The site should state they have their own sizes. Because the 50G was more like a 40D

I didn't like this bra because it was rough on my skin and it has a tendency to fold up. I will not be ordering it again.

Elila Response: We are sorry that you were not happy with your purchase. To maximize the comfort of your garment, hand wash it before wearing to remove any finishes on the fabric. Anne from Boston

I will not be ordering anything else. I could not even get this bra to meet in the front!!! This is my size, but no way could I get this bra on! I have ordered other items.They never fit. Wish these sizes were correct. The other one I ordered is also too small. Sandra from Lula, Georgia

Love the front closure and support panels underneath and in the back, but I hate hate hate the cups built like bullets/cones. If this was seamless stretch cups, I'd never buy another bra. Faith from GA

I highly recommend this bra to anyone who wants support and comfort. It does exactly what a bra should do, SUPPORT! It supports the breasts, and also, it supports the shoulders and the back very comfortably. This is the first bra that I have found in many, many years (and many wasted $$s later), that I can stand to wear for more than a few minutes. I haven't taken it off yet, since I tried it on, several hours ago. Thank you Elila, for making something normally so uncomfortable for me to endure, a real pleasure to wear! I have already placed another order for more! I LOVE your products! Thank you HerRoom, for carrying it! Laurie from NM

I love the quality and long wear of Elila bras and needed a Longline for "Formal Gowns". Easy to put on with the Front Hooks, also makes the back smoother. The quality, support, looks and fit of this bra is fantastic! . I sell women's Designer shoes and travel nationally. I also wear 3" or 4" high heel pumps, as part of my job and many days I am on standing and walking in high heels 12 hours or more. I can walk confidently in heels and not worry about by breasts swaying or bouncing while wearing this bra! Many evenings, I am required to attend Formal Fashion events, also as part of my job. This Elida Longline worn with a panty girdle helps my gowns look and fit great! I can dance all evening in 4" heels and be comfortable and no back ache thanks to this bra! I also have a strapless Elia Longline for one shoulder and strapless gowns. Ann from MA

This is THE best bra for support and lift. It is really comfortable to wear. I am not always pulling the back strap down or adjusting the front. When I move around or bend over, everything stays in place. I will never wear another bra. Carmen from Oceanside, CA

This bra is really well made but it kept coming unhooked in front at the top and poking out under my shirts. I even tried stapling it after I had it on but it wouldn't stay closed. I'm considering trying the same bra but in the back hook style.

Elila Response: We agree with you! You should definitely try the back hooks. It is our Embroidered Softcup Longline Back Hook Bra 5001 which sounds like it would be a better fit for your needs. Julie from Oregon

The cups didn't fit properly- they pointed toward the sides, not straight forward. As I look at the picture again, the cups do appear to pointaway from midline.The longline part was nice and supportive. Sorry to have to return it. Margie from VA

Beautifully constructed, although the fabric was a little stiff, I imagine that would have worked out after washing it. It was so tight, thought, that I measured myself again after receiving it.... it definitely runs small, so be aware. Nkk from Houston, TX US

I love this bra, I've been wearing this bra (buying new ones to replace the old one) for about 4 years. The only complaint I have is that the sizing isn't consistent. One will fit perfect, one will be too big, the new one is slightly smaller. It is only 1/4 of an inch but it makes a difference in comfort. There is no other like it with the high back and front closure. Suzie from Tennessee

Although I thought I had measured correctly and accurately, the longline bra was way too small and would not have been comfortable. Otherwise, it was clear to me that this was a good quality product and all other aspects of the transaction were good. Catherine from Gatlinburg, TN., USA

I consider this one of my prettiest long line bras. I wear it with a "tall" girdle for a smooth line, bust line to hips. The boning and panels are unique, love the front closure feature. I highly recommend this garment! JP from Morrison CO

After wearing just once, one of the hooks came out. Now there is a bulge where the hook should be :-(

This is a beautiful bra that fits wonderfully except around the waist. I am sure it would fit fine on a slimmer woman with a longer waist. But that is not me so I could only give it 4 stars. If you are short and a little plump, get a 3/4 long bra. I have one on now and it is perfect! Dawn from Azle/Texas/USA
