This is the third Raquel I have purchased. Full coverage on sides and no overflow in front. Underwire is comfortable height under the arm . Nice size band cuts down in back fat rolls. Nice lift. Only wish is that it was made in a smooth cup. I have had wonderful luck with all Elomi bras for have purchased. My go to brand at HerRoom. NancyM from Shelbyille

This is an attractive well fitting bra for a full size. It would be a lot more comfortable if the straps would stay up. This strap design has been recently changed and I have tried these straps as well. They are made of an elastic material which rolls and rolls around till you end up with this thin little strap that digs into your skin. If Elomi can't get the straps right, I will be unable to purchase their brand any longer.

Elomi Response: If you are having trouble with your straps rolling there are two possible solutions to try: You may be placing too much stress on your straps. Remember that 85% of your bra’s support should actually come from the band. Changing your size to a 38J (D10) will give you a firmer fit and more support from the ribs, thus preventing strap rolling and strain. Or if you are actually in the correct bra size, then a different style might be necessary. We suggest ordering from our sister-brand Goddess. The Goddess Heather Underwire Banded Bra GD6060 features non-roll padded straps for comfort. Please note that Goddess is sold in US sizes and you will need to order a 40L (D9) for the correct fit.

It is a nice bra and fit correctly however I returned it because I misread the description. I was hoping for something that would help cover nipples better. Great bra if that is not your issue.

This bra is prettier in person than I thought it looked online. I simply purchased it because I am very busty and I needed to purchase new bras without breaking the bank. It is hard to find cute ones at the right price in the color I desire. The cup of the bra is great. I don't spill out and it perfectly sits my girls up where they should be. The only issue that I saw was that the underwire poked my under my arms some depending on how I was sitting, however, I believe that is a me thing and not the bra. Shantelle from Cheriton

Item (cups) were too large compared to other Elomi bras I have.

Elomi Response: If the cups on your Raquel bra are too full for your body type, then we suggest trying a style like the Elomi Morgan Underwire Banded Bra EL4110. Morgan features stretch lace upper cups that conform to your body for a custom fit. Morgan’s cups also run a touch smaller than Raquel’s so this should be an excellent style for you!

Probably a good bra, definitely beautiful, but straps too wide apart to stay on my shoulders. I made the mistake of trying this one even though the details did not say center-pull straps.

Elomi Response: We are sorry to hear this wasn’t a perfect fit for you. If you are looking for an Elomi style that is better suited for narrow shoulders, then we recommend trying one of our newest styles, Tia (EL4280). Tia features feminine lace details, center pull straps and is available up to a 42JJ! Marty from Lexington, KY USA

I have wanted this bra for over a year. Love the style and design, but not the fit. It's a little snug, and the band feels flimsy, not like other Elomi bras that I have. I am glad I got it on sale and not at full price.

Elomi Response: The Elomi Raquel bra features a firm band to ensure the maximum support for very full or dense breast tissue. If the band feels a bit too firm for your liking, we recommend giving this style a try in the next band size up. In your case, you would order a 42HH to ensure a proper fitting band and cup.

Very disappointed... despite the fact that this is the size I buy when I get them in a store, this one was way too big. Now I'm stuck with it.

Elomi Response: We are sorry to here that Raquel was not a perfect fit for you this time around. It is important to remember that Elomi bras use the UK sizing system. To ensure that you are purchasing the correct size while ordering online, we recommend referencing the HerRoom Universal Cup Sizing System to ensure a proper fit. Kimberly from 07004

My daughter is 16, 5'8' and a 36J. She is an athlete and usually wears an Elomi sports bra with everything. She wanted a non-sports bra so we tried this one. It is very pretty and the cups provide good coverage (no spilling over the top). Since her breasts are so heavy the straps are digging a bit but she wanted to keep it and insists that it is comfortable. ARB from Chicago, IL USA

This bra by Elomi does fit but the center which should sit right against the chest wall has a strange twist to it preventing a close fit. I decided to keep it and put up with this flaw and have now worn it and washed it so don't feel I can return it, nor do I want to pay return shipping. It is disappointing, because of the 3 Elomi bras I purchased this is the only one I am unhappy with. In general I think Elomi makes wonderful bras for large breasts. Carol from Crossville, Tn

This is the most comfortable bra I have ever owned. The fit is perfect. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to the way the seam on the side creates a weird indentation/shape on to the silhouette. Since this is quite obvious in tight fitting tops, I will only wear this bra with looser fitting garments. KM from York, SC, US

I was told by a "bra fit" sales person that I should have my bras custom made(because of my bra size) and who can afford that?! So, I have been wearing ill fitting bras for a while now, frustrated that no store carried my size and not wanting to order online as each manufacturer fits differently and thought it was hopeless until I found your universal sizing andtook the bra fit questionnaire and found a huge selection of my sizes!!!

I am so happy to have found this bra. It's the first underwire that I have been able to get through the day wearing in quite a long time. The bottom wire doesn't dig into me like other bras. The comfort level is about a 9 and I love the way it shapes me. Use the internationally sizing calculator on this one. It's a UK bra. Geri from Philadelphia

I bought 2 of these bras in different colors and I wore the one and I am glad that I wore it. The straps are very thin and dug into my shoulder leaving a dent in my skin, very little support in the cup. This bra was very uncomfortable especially the straps.

I usually buy Elomi bras but the quality of this style isn't what I'm used to. The first time I wore it the underwire poked out. As far as fit is concerned this particular style sits very high. When wearing a tank style shirt the bra peaks out.

Elomi Response: We recommend trying Matilda (EL8900). This bra has a great plunge and J-hook which makes it great for all necklines. Teresa from Ks.

A few months ago, I went to a local lingerie store and ended up being fit into a couple of Elomi bras. I was thrilled to find some that I liked her on HerRoom. The Raquel is super comfortable, and seemed to me to run true to size. The cups are supportive, and I know the ladies are secure, but it is still pretty and feminine. I'm likely to buy this bra in another color - it has become one of my favorites. In general, this and my other Elomi bra are well made. I also recently purchased an Elomi swimsuit, same confidence in the quality of the products. Love it. Jen from Pleasant Hill, CA

This is now my everyday bra! The support and fit is awesome! What I love the most is that it covers on top and at the sides. I would love this exact bra with smoother cups for thin material and light weight t-shirts. However, I can wear this one, with lace cups, with materials that are weightier with no problems. Overall, this bra is a winner for the fuller breasted ladies!!! SLD from Arlington/TN/US

This bra is very comfortable, it holds everything in place and the straps don't slip. Most other bras I have spillage over the top, but not with this one. Also, the wires don't jab me in the armpits. The only things I don't like are that the material is a bit rough, in particular where the underwire sits on the skin. Also, I wish it had more support on the sides, but I've noticed Elomi bras don't have much side support. I will definitely be buying more of these, just wish they had more colors! Tanya from GA
