I hopped online and began reading about bras. I found a site that described in detail how to measure for a perfect fit. I measured myself, following the directions exactly. I learned my band size was too large and my cup size was a size too small. I also learned that the styles of bra I was wearing were simply inappropriate for nearly any woman who wore larger than a B-cup. I found a Consumer Reports article about Elomi bras and decided that if I was going to take a chance on ordering one online, I'd start with the highest recommended, least expensive model. I purchased one in 38E, in the "truffle" color. I am so glad I made this choice!
This bra fits like a dream. For one, the side support feels great. I feel like all of my breast tissue is held on the front of my body and not simply squished back to where it spills out over the sides. My entire breast fits into the cup. The band is doing all of the heavy lifting work and the straps have to do less work...Read more ›
I have the benefit of being in NYC, so I go to Intimacy, who professionally fit ladies, and who introduced me to this bra. I had been using the Panache Tango Balconette. Compared to that bra, this makes me look like I've had surgery. In addition to the look (this bra is much narrower than the Panache) the side support is soft and firm, and the wires are not located under the underarms, and so do not poke into my side boobs. The bra is soft and comfortable, I look *lifted* but not unnatural, and I feel well supported.
From what I can see, most of the negative reviews are about the difficulty of fit. If at all possible, please get yourself fit in person to determine the size, and then come to Amazon to buy what you like in more colors for less money. There is no industry standard for bras ladies, so just because you are one size in your old bra doesn't mean you are the same size in *any* other bra. There's no point in blaming the bra or the company, its an industry problem.
This bra is heaven. If you are a large lady who has a problem with wire poking into your sideboob, do please give this one a chance. There is nothing like proper support.
Then, finally, I decided enough was enough and went to be professionally sized. My band size was right on but my cup size? Yeah, 3 full cups bigger than what I walked in wearing.
I tried numerous but this one was hands down the best. It's comfortable, who knew underwire bras didn't have to hurt. The middle actually rests on my breastbone and allows me to have two distinct breasts - no more uniboob for me. And geographically, the girls are comfortably back in the northern hemisphere (breast feeding did me no favors in that department).
Being someone who is a sucker for a deal and usually buys bras at buy 1 get 1 free deals, the price was a little tough to swallow but ultimately it is absolutely worth it. Rather than having 25 cheap bras I may only have 4 or 5 of these and that is a far better place to be (and leaves way more room in the dresser for more cute clothes!).
This is the first time I've ever felt compelled to write a review-that is how strongly I feel about this bra. Give it a try, I think you'll be happy you did.
The Caitlyn is my favorite bra for several reason. Firstly, it gives excellent lift and support. The secret is that the cup is divided by several seams that lift, shape and support the breast without being irritating or itchy. You don't feel the seams at all. Secondly, the top of the bra's cup is so well made that your breasts never pop out of the top. I believe it's a kind of reinforced seam that keeps your breasts in the bra. Thirdly, the straps are the perfect width and are easy to adjust and do not slip or lengthen during the day. Fourthly, the bra's excellent construction distributes the weight of your breasts so that the straps never dig into your shoulders! The even distribution of weight provides a unique comfort. You don't feel like you are wearing a bra at all.
Did I mention that the bra is also very pretty? The lace at the top half of the cup is delicate and feminine. The pictures don't do the bra justice. The bra is great looking in a variety of colors. Even the practical cream colored bra is sexy. This bra doesn't look or feel like a giant bra. Up to a size E the bra only has two rows of hooks. The three row of hooks on my size 38 F is still quite delicate looking.
I suspect that the poor reviews come from either a difference in personal preference or from people who are wearing this bra in the wrong size. It is CRUCIAL THAT YOU BUY THIS BRA IN THE RIGHT SIZE! The fabric does not stretch in the cups and the sizing is European(there is no DDD).Read more ›
