EXCELLENT!! First, I want to thank Tomima for her pioneer-like informational videos and educational website that is like no other. You are helping women everywhere! Bless you. In like fashion, I hope this review helps women to decide if this bra can help them. THIS BRA IS PERFECT FOR ME!! I am 6'0" 205lbs, size L top, 14 jeans. I am very confident, I love my physique and am happy with my weight. I WAS confident until I saw pictures of myself and realized that my breasts/bra were making me look frumpy and dowdy. I recently lost weight and my saggy bra was hiding my new waistline and flat belly! I had to do something! Here's what I used to deal with. My chief complaint was that I NEVER had a bra that would contain my entire breast-- meaning on the sides, underneath or above the cup. I would consistently, have spillage over the top and under the underwire (which used to pop out on sides and middle of every bra eventually)! Also my straps would dig into my shoulders and eventually my boobs would sag and pull the back of the bra up too high. I could never seem to find a bra that had a band size low enough with a cup size high enough. If I found a bra that almost worked, it was usually a minimizer which exaggerated the problems and spread my breasts over my chest -- flat and disheveled - YUCK!! My husband encouraged me to check online for more options and helped me measure myself. When I came to HerRoom, the Universal Cup Sizing System was THE KEY TO FINDING MY CORRECT SIZE, SOLVING MY PROBLEMS AND FINDING A BRA THAT SUITED MY NEEDS. This particular bra is comfortable, shapely, very supportive, soft, strong, sexy, FITS PERFECTLY, holds up under active work (I work in a warehouse doing lifting, throwing boxes, bending, etc.) NO MORE FIXING, SHIFTING, STUFFING, LIFTING, ADJUSTING!!! HALLELUJAH! I could almost cry because of how satisfied and relieved I feel to have a bra that works and feels good and fits, all in one. I HAVE MY CONFIDENCE BACK!!! Thank you, Tomima! Your videos were free and extremely educational. I could have gotten bras anywhere, but I gave you my business because you helped me more than any other source. I will always shop here. God Bless!

Good fit; best support I've had in years. Only negative is that the material on the sides was very irritating. Once washed in Woolite and a little vinegar, it was fine. Pat from Albany NY

Love Love Love this bra. I bought and returned a few different brands to find the right size. Her room was great about this. My problem is usually the straps fall off my shoulder with most bras. This one is perfect and I can wear it all day and night. Very Comfortable. Cindy from PA

I'm still trying to find my perfect fit in this bra style. On my first order I went too big in the cup size but didn't know it until I spoke with a customer service rep and she told me where the underwire should be laying under my arm. By then I had already worn it, but it is still rather comfortable. Shopping here is sometimes trial and error but thankfully HerRoom is very accommodating with returns. Geri from Philadelphia

Love this bra. I haven't worn underwires in years. I wish I had tried this one sooner. Fit and comfort are both great. My thanks to customer service for letting me exchange when I ordered the wrong size (I was crazy off on the size). Michelle from Lafyette, LA

Very cheaply made. Not worth the money

This bra is one of my favorite bras. It gives nice support and lift and separation. It is not what I would call a pretty bra, but having very large, heavy natural breasts it is a comfortable bra with good back support. It is rigid for the first few weeks of wear, but then breaks in nicely. It is made to last! It does kind of spread me out a little wide, but overall an excellent bra! I don't know how it would be on a shorter gal though. Misty from California

I love this bra! I've been struggling to find a larger cup bra that felt comfortable and this one is very comfortable. I bought a 46GG and the fit is good, although I might try going up a cup size and down a band size to see the difference. I'm full-figured and it's hard to find a bra that is comfortable and actually gives you good support. When I put this bra on and wear it 10 hours or more a day, I still feel good at the end of the day. Unlike other bras I've tried, this one took the pressure off my shoulders from the weight of my breasts. I plan on buying more -- the comfort level is well worth the cost. Kim from Tacoma,WA

I am thrilled with the fit and support of this bra. My clothes fit much better now that the "girls" are lifted up to where they belong! This bra is very comfortable, too. I plan on buying several more. Hope they expand the color selection soon. Barb from Lancaster, Pennsylvania

It's a great bra--fits very well and comfortable. I'm happy with it. The white was on sale, but didn't have my size. The nude works well--wish they were less expensive, but it is nice to get a bra that fits so well. No comments about longevity yet, as I've only had it a couple of weeks. Prudence from Wasilla, AK

The bra is beautiful but uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time. The underwire digs into my ribs and under arms.

Elomi Response: Carolyn, it might be that you're in an incorrect size, or you might have a "petite upper torso". This means you have very little room between the bottom of your breast and your shoulders. If you have a "petite upper torso", you may need a style which is shorter in height, and is also cut lower at the underarms for comfort. Etta (EL8840) is one of my favorites! Perhaps give Etta a try, I think this style might become your new favorite bra! Carolyn from Dallas

This is a great everyday bra. The pros: I am extremely full-busted and there is no spillage with these cups. I really like the center part actually lies flat against the chest... you do not get the dreaded "third eye" look. They wash well and are well-made. This bra seems to provide great support. This is maybe my 6th bra in this style and I have never had the underwire come out. The band under the cups is actually very comfortable. The cons: I wish the straps had a little padding at the top of the shoulder. Also, the cup fabric is fairly thin so your nipples may show through clothing, which I hate but I wear dimmers/nipple covers so that is not an issue. Melanie from Katy, TX, USA

I cannot say enough good about this bra! The underwire wraps around so that it does not poke my underarms and lies flat in the front. No bulging or spilling out of the cups. The band stays put. There is plenty of support. The less positive reviews are obviously from women who did not follow the sizing instructions, but instead bought the size they are used to buying in a department store. In my experience, you really will wear a band far smaller than you thought and a cup size far larger. Suzanne from Baton Rouge

I was very excited about this bra when I first received it. It fit well, the strap sat across my back without riding up, the middle piece laid against my chest. I do, however, think that the bra is cheaply made. I have three now and they all are wearing out so quickly! $55 is a lot of money for a bra that barely made a few weeks without being stretched and worn out. It was tight on the first set of hooks when I bought and now the strap rides up my back and the center piece is no longer flush. Having such a large chest I don't have a lot of options for bras so over all I suppose its still okay, but truly isn't made well enough for it to cost my right arm.

Elomi Response: Melissa - Thank you for trying Elomi Caitlyn EL8030 D8. From your description, "strap rides up my back and the center piece is no longer flush" after wearing a few times-you might need a smaller band and fuller cup. Please refer to the HerRoom video "How to Measure for a Bra" to help determine your correct band and cup size. Another important step and HerRoom video to watch is "How To Put On A Bra". This step and process can and will make a difference in what size bra you wear. Another Elomi style to consider with a J-hook is elomi Etta Underwire Convertible Bandless Bra EL8840! Melissa

My experience may be due to my own breast shape, weight, etc. (breasts touching, pendulous, heavy). The band was very painful for the first 10-20 times of wearing it; I couldn't get through a whole day in it. Now that I've washed and worn it a bunch of times it doesn't hurt much but it does roll under, which isn't comfortable either. I think the center section is too wide for my breasts, it makes them splay out, and there's no side support to speak of. I'm not crazy about the overall shape and lift, I feel like my breasts are still pointing down rather than lifted. And of course it doesn't work under a t-shirt, even with a camisole underneath because of the embroidery and seams.

Elomi Response: Susan-Thank you for your feedback and for trying Elomi Caitlyn EL8030 in 36D7. Please consider watching the HerRoom video, "How To Put On A Bra" to ensure you're sweeping your breast tissue into the cup properly. This process can make a difference in what size you are and help you to reach that perfect fit. A curvier frame can experience band flipping as the band forms to the natural curve of your body. A bra style and brand that has a fuller side wing might offer relief too. Please consider Goddess Hannah Underwire Molded Side Support Bra GD6131 in 36D7. This style offers unique circular seaming in the cups, gives great shape and support while keeping you smooth and seam free! Susan from Albuquerque, NM

Good support bra. Using the universal cup sizing chart I found most helpful-every bra I ordered actually fit! I hate to go to a dept. store to shop for bras- the selection is overwhelming to me and trying them on is the pits! Since I discovered HerRoom this is the only way I will purchase from now on!

When I first bought this item I LOVED it. I was so excited to find something that allowed me to wear tank tops without my bra showing. I can still wear the bra but there are a few things that I do not like about it. First, I've only had it a few months and it is already starting to be very worn. Even some torn fabric around band (and I only handwash and line dry my bras). Second, I bought the color nude and if something (such as sweat) gets on the bra it darkens the fabric and even with clorox2 it is still unsightly in the under arm area. The last thing is that with thin fabrics the bra doesn't look very well because it shows every seam line. Although I am glad to finally have a bra that isn't hideous and makes me feel better about my chest I still think there is certainly room for improvement. Melissa from OH, USA
