To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm hard to fit and was quite skeptical about getting a bra from Amazon or anywhere else on-line, without the benefit of trying it on first. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised at how well this Elomi Cate fits. My criteria includes strong supportive side-panels (minimize east-west expansion) and plenty of lift. This bra succeeds. The picture is accurate. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is simply that it does feel uncomfortable after a few hours. I have had bras that I forget I'm wearing because there is no discomfort, but I did not necessarily get the containment that I get with this bra, so maybe the discomfort is the price that I have to pay...?
