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.
This bra fits very well, is comfortable, and is high quality, but after one year of use, one of the underwires broke. From reading other reviews, I see that this is a common problem. I contacted Elomi, but they were unwilling to send me a replacement underwire. Fortunately, I was able to find a replacement underwire from porcelynne.com. My Elomi Cate bra is UK Size 38H, US Size 38K. Porcelynne's size 56 "heavy gauge vertical underwire" is a very close match, and is made of thicker metal than the original Elomi underwire. Two pairs cost me $3.75, so I am ready when the next Elomi underwire breaks.
Wow, what an amazing bra. Seriously, if you are large chested or on the curvy side THIS is the bra. I'm talking full coverage and lift; It even hides those annoying little fat pouches right by the arm pit. Cons: 1. Having breastfed 5 children I don't have a lot of breast tissue near the top of my breasts (sag) so this portion of the bra is a bit...baggy, due to the construction/pattern. However, it does not bother me or show through my clothing. 2. This is a very vintage style construction so there is a seam that cuts straight across the breast horizontally that is visible through clothing.
Pros: Hides back fat. Incredible lift. SO comfortable. Wide straps so no cut lines. Seriously beautiful. No uniboob because of the underwires's construction. Hides armpit fat.
Need help determining bra size? Measure around band line under breast tightly. Measure around fullest part of breast. Subtract bust from band. Every inch is a letter up. Example: My band size-37, bust size-45. 45-37= 8 8"= H. I bought a 38H and the fit is perfect.
