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.
Not sure if I messed up or this is just sized wrong. I always buy Elomi Caitlyn but this time I decided to try the Cate. It is too small, both in cups and band. I just assumed that the size from the same company should be similar across the styles.
I’m a long time fan of Elomi, and being able to purchase reasonably from Amazon is fabulous. Any other time, my purchase comes as expected in an Amazon branded envelope. Imagine my horror at getting home from work and discovering that when my son heckled the mail, my unmentionable had been delivered in clear plastic wrap! Don’t know what oversight happened with this shipment, but I’m defiant it pleased about it.
I wanted to love this bra so much, and I did love the fit and support. What I didn't love what how conical they made my breasts look. I tried it on, put on a t-shirt, then showed my husband without mentioning my concerns. His first comment was, "Are bullet bras back?" It might just be the shape/size of my breasts, but it didn't work for me. For reference, I'm a 34DDD who lost a lot of weight after having kids, so I have fairly large and kind of pendulous breasts. Also, the straps and band aren't exactly the most comfortable material. Had I not had the fit/look issue I wouldn't have thought twice about it because the cups were super comfortable and supportive, but I wanted to put it out there.
Have been wearing a different elomi bra for last couple yrs. and very satisfied with it. It is not made anymore. This one fits my very large bust and delivers side support,but at the expense of increasing projection which I don't like. I want to look smaller but it seems like you have to choose one or the other. The material is not as strong as before and the elastic on this is very flimsy and I think it is going to wear out quickly. At this price I expect better quality material. Can't find exactly what I need and am going broke on return postage fees. Very discouraging.
