Comfortable, supports a larger bust and is still attractive! Submitted from TheUndies.com

I really wanted to like this bra. It looks nice and is convertible, but it just wasn't comfortable. The fabric was scratchy and the underwires were uncomfortable. I'm not sure why -- almost like they were the wrong shape.

Elomi Response: Thank you for trying Elomi Etta, EL8840. This style is a top seller in the Elomi assortment and perfect for a petite frame. Washing the garment prior to wearing it will soften the fabric. The underwire placement on the side should rest on the bone not in soft breast tissue. An alternate multiway and very supportive style to consider is Elomi's Rita Underwire Multiway Banded Bra. In addition, please refer to the HerRoom section on Bra Fitting Center to ensure you're selecting the correct band and cup size! Julie from Colorado

After a long search for a bra model that fit, I settled on the elomi Etta (EL8840). I tried on different sizes, and kept a 36J and sister size 38HH. My underbust measurement is between 34-35" depending on how tight I pull the measuring tape. (Full bust is 46".) I found that while on the loosest settings, the 36 band was initially too tight and the 38 band was too loose but the cups on both fit great. I kept both sister sizes to test because I liked how the bra separated and supported my breasts. After several wearings, both bands loosened. The 36 band is now perfectly comfortable on the loosest setting. The Etta seems to be well made and sturdy. I personally find the wires on the sides of this bra about 1" too tall. The side wires dig into my flesh and push the bra down my sides. I have gently bent the wires at the sides away from my body and it has helped a lot but still isn't perfect for my particular body shape. . . but is the only bra that I found that came close to working for me. I also find the wires a little too wide for my breast base. I like that there's an open area in the bra between the breasts. I feel that this helps with air circulation for my close-set breasts. I'm glad to have found a bra that will hold my breasts in place and take the strain off of my neck, shoulders and back. I have decided to order more Etta bras in 36J because once worn a few times, the band is a perfect fit. Darlene from central Pennsylvania

I think this bra is my new favorite Elomi. The girls are up and perky, and the cups give a great shape. Justine from Los Angeles

A bra in my size with a "J" hook, unheard of. I love, love, love my bra! A 32H would have probably worked better, but for now this 34H rocks. I'll see how much the band stretches over time, and perhaps a 32H may be an option the next time. Can hardly wait to try out the "J" hooks with my racer back tops. Sissum from Anchorage AK

Finding a bra that is supportive in a 38J is hard to do! This bra has excellent support. I love that the wire in the middle isn't as high as most, I hate when they poke through between my breasts when I sit down. I will be purchasing this bra again! The only down side, it is a bit scratchy when you first where it, but what new bra isn't! ricottapieforever from Hagerstown, IN

nice fit, could use an optional strap widener/enxtender so straps don't cut into shoulders (when you have a heavy bust) Aimee from Gonzales, La., USA

The wires are narrow, and the lacing on the gore is very irritating. But I do love the options of having a nude or black bra. Becky from ANACORTES

Well constructed, medium weight materials. Cup size was small, but the band size was right, so returned for a larger cup. Hopeful of a good fit when the new one arrives. Jenn from Elko, NV

Being a bigger size cup, it is extremely difficult to find a bra that is supportive while giving good shape. This piece looks great under clothes! The only negative is the material is a bit coarse. However, the way in which the bra holds everything up creates a slimming effect. I would recommend this bra to anyone who is top heavy like me. Amanda from Cupertino, CA

This bra is so comfortable! I usually have a problem with the wire poking me in my side near my armpit...Not a problem with this bra. I can wear it all day and never have to adjust it. My breasts are heavy and this bra gives me great lift and shape. I haven't used the racerback style for longer than a few minutes, so I can't speak to that aspect but when I did try it, the bra felt snug and even more supportive. I will probably order a few more of this style. Wolf's Mommy from San Diego, CA

I wore this bra for the first time today. The band is quite tight, more so than I expected from an Elomi bra. Despite that, I'm very pleased with this bra. I don't mind using the extender for now, and I figure the band will eventually stretch (all bands do over time). With the extender, the band's still very secure: it doesn't ride up, twist around my body, or force the straps to do all the heavy lifting. Plus, the cups give me a great perky shape. I had no trouble scooping myself completely into the cups. The center gore tacks perfectly, and it's low enough to hide below most of my v-neck tops. The shorter underwires are great for me since I'm short and short-waisted. But I wore this bra all day today, with no itching or poking. Just be aware that the band on this bra might be smaller/tighter than you expect, compared to other Elomi bras you own. This could easily become my new almost-perfect "everyday" black bra, and I'll probably order a second one. Robin from Chicago IL

The bra fit is okay but I don't like the fabric. I went out dancing in this bra on and the fabric irritated my skin so bad. I had red marks where the fabric rubbed my skin raw. I wouldn't recommend this bra. Tearra from Denham Springs, La, United States

I currently wear a 38GG in the Amelia and decided to give this one a shot since I needed one that I can wear with racer back tank tops for the summer. When I received it I put it on and was immediately disappointed. The cup rippled and the side puckered. It looked awful and will be returning it by the week's end. I tried one of those plastic things to bring the straps together with the ameila but I don't think that works with wide straps as it just broke the plastic thing. Kimeka from Chicago

ordered a black one, it felt so good, turned around and ordered it in nude!I have large breasts and finding bras that don't pinch me under the arm, band cut in, or just doesn't fit seemed impossible to find until ETTA. Fits like it was made for me. Brandi from Lakeland, FL

I am 5'1" and 140 lbs. The cups on this bra pucker a bit although it is the same size as my Panache bra. I will alter it to fit better. I do like that the plunge between the breasts is deeper and therefore the bra doesn't show when wearing a V-neck. Jan from Los Angles, CA
