    Pros:
    Attractive
    Bandless, therefore best for short waisted women and any who have underwires dig in their ribs
    Low center gore for those who need it (like close together breasts)
    Underwires appear flexible
    Doesn't come up under arm
    All of the above means it's pretty comfortable
    Band is comfortably tight and doesn't seem prone to stretch like my Caitlyn (34K)

    Cons:
    Cups are so wide it seems like it was supposed to act as part of the band. Who knows, maybe it was?
    Material a little itchy. Probably will get softer with wear
    Not uber supportive. Some jiggle can be noted though not extreme
    Full on top women can get quad boob if they ... try since it's not lace or full coverage but it shouldn't usually be happening unless you try.

    Not necessarily a con, the shape elomi bras seem to give isn't my preferred one but it doesn't look bad at all under clothes.

    I love this bra. I've never had a pretty bra before! I didn't expect it to work in the least but my breasts actually sit how the models does without it coming up full coverage. I like how it looks, I LOVE the low center gore. I like the seemingly flexible underwire and most of all the bandless nature of it. The underwire doesn't tack 100% but there's only like a cm or two of space so for my purposes I said it does.

    I am a short waisted hour glass/cello and my breasts are heavy and pendulous and this barely puts any pressure on my ribs. It seems to be an engineering feat to me. If elomi 's multiway bra works out, I'll be a definite fan although I wear 32K normally, the 34JJ/K seems to work for me. I just wish it came in a K cup to see if it worked even better but I'll gladly settle for this. P. S. Husband loves it. Try it!

    Well, it's still the best-fitting bra I've owned, but it's still not right. It must be too tight, but I'm not sure if I need to go for a sister-size cup or what. In some ways, it seems small (I think the wire needs to go further back and also be wider at the bottom of my boob, but there's also some wrinkling of the top of the cups when I raise my arms. The gore tacks very tight. I have *never* had a gore tack like this. I found wearing a really snug band to be far more comfortable than I expected, and it really seemed to fit in the cups at first. It was actually pretty comfortable the first day I wore it all day. Unfortunately, it's so snug that it's pulling the wires out of shape. :( I tried wearing it with an extender to see if that helped. but that made the cups even more wrinkly and it just seemed to not fit right in the cups.

    This Izzy is a pretty bra and fairly comfortable, which is saying a lot since I think it's probably at least one and maybe two cup sizes too small for me. My biggest issue is that the underwires are too short, and they cut/poke into my underarm breast tissue. (I'm approaching menopause and fat, and my breasts are pendulous, but my breast roots have always stretched into the underarm areas.) Also, there's no side-support boning in this bra, which I probably need. So rather than get this same bra in a bigger cup size, I'm going to look for a similar-cut model that includes better side-shaping.

    Otherwise, I like this bra and it still fits better than any of my other bras (which are 42DDDs; I hesitated to jump up two cup sizes, but now I wish I had). I got it cheap enough on ebay, so I will keep it to wear until I have a few very well-fitting bras, and I may then just remove the underwires for a comfy and pretty around-the-house bra.

    • A DDD in American bras is the same as an E cup. UK sizing doesn't do DDD's, they call them E's. So you actually didn't go up any cup sizes.

    • 1

      Ah, that explains a lot. Thanks.

    • no problem. Did you do your measurements? If you want to go up one cup from your current DDDs, you'd look for F's. 2 cups is FF.

    • Yes, my tight rib measurement is 41.5 and my bust measurement is about 48-49, depending on the bra I'm wearing. The underwire on that Elomi is much, much smaller than the one on the 42DDD Playtex bras I've been wearing, though, so I may indeed look for an FF. Thanks for the input.

    • Do your overbust without a bra on - standing, bent over at the waist, and lying flat. Those are the parameters ABTF on Reddit uses - they also have an excellent bra size calculator. Do a perimeter measurement as well, BTB has a measurement guide that should walk you through that. Bras, especially poorly fitting ones, can distort your overbust measurement.

    • 1

      I've read about many different ways to measure, including the ABTF guide, but I've gotten pretty varied results at different sites. However, based on your recommendation, I just went through the ABTF guide again and it suggests a 42F/FF, so that will be my next purchase. I wish I could afford to order a handful of bras to try on at a time, but for now, I'll start with two. My town is quite small, so ordering online is my only option.

      Now I just have to decide what style to try out first.

      Thanks for your help.

    • You're welcome and I totally get the online thing. It's frustrating, I live in a tiny town and am on a budget too. But I had F/FF in my head for you and glad the ABTF calculator agrees. I think it's a good starting point!

    This almost fit me, but the band was a bit loose, and on the middle hooks the cups cut across the tops of my boobs.

    Other than that, it was comfortable, if a bit scratchy.

    This is the Elomi plunge bra that I got at Nordstrom Rack before I bought the Elomi Betty that I thought was the correct size at Nordstrom. As a test. Nope. I just cannot wear this bra. I took the band in by about 4 inches to make a 32H, but... The cups are too wide and shallow. And there is a ton of space on the sides because they're so wide. This bra pushes my boobs flat, down and to the sides. And it's just really uncomfortable because the cups give me no support.

    Altered band,

    The Good: This is a really pretty bra. Polka dots, lace, and pretty satin detailing usually means the bra will be a little scratchy at first, but it wasn't. The wire didn't dig in to my under arm and the straps are pretty sturdy. While the band is stretchy, it doesn't stretch quickly out of shape.
    The Bad: The band rolled on my soft tissue making it uncomfortable to wear in the long term. I added boning to the front and back to keep the netting flat and it has made the bra more comfortable over all. I did notice the top of the cups cut into my breast tissue where the accent lace has little to no stretch.

    I like the shape this bra gives me. Although the wires seem to wrap around far, I still get spillage out of the top. Sending it back.

    I bought this 40H Elomi Izzy Bandless Bra (8790) at Nordstrom Rack for $24.45, including tax, to enter its measurements into Bratabase. I'll offer to let a friend buy it at cost from me. If she doesn't, it'll go back.

    Elomi calls the color Hummingbird. The cups are a medium value, shiny purple with same color dots embossed as part of its texture. I LOVE the edging at the top of the cups. I'll try to capture it in a photograph. It's as though someone drew a cartoon of a mesh strip that is ruffly along the top edge because the mesh is ruched with a bright pink ... bow through the middle along its entire length. But the whole thing is flat! They embroidered the whole optical illusion! I have never seen such a thing in a bra. Why the heck has no one done this for one of my bras???!

    In any case, this means this seemingly extravagant decoration will probably not show through clothing. I am very impressed and deeply covetous of this embroidered mesh. If I could sew well, I would consider dismembering this bra and transplanting the mesh onto something I can wear. Since I typically wear 30F, I'll have to admire this Elomi bra from a distance.
