Comments about store experience:
Location is right next to a parking lot on the first floor. Employees were very kind and helpful but did not immediately try to measure me. They were happy to let me browse but when I tried the bras on and asked for an additional size, one of the saleswomen stepped in and offered me things in other sizes, checking the fit of each. Luckily, I was there the day the Elomi representative was there and she gave me a great fitting. The two of them worked together and I had an overall great experience.

Comments about my bra fitting experience:
Amy is the sales representative for Elomi on the East Coast. She travels between mid-Atlantic stores on a regular basis.

The Westchester - White Plains, New York

Great selection, has 30 bands and G+ cups. Fitting room attendants are attentive, friendly, and helpful but will push you toward a 32 band during a fitting if you have a 31 inch underbust or below. Otherwise, the fittings are pretty accurate.

Comments about store experience:
If Venice isn't working on the day you go, ask when she's working and choose another day. She is the only one to make this trip worthwhile.
Bra fitting experience:
The name of my fitter was: Venice
I would recommend this fitter to a friend
My fitter was super knowledgeable (5 out of 5)
My fitter was not at all pushy (1 out of 5)
My fitter made me feel super comfortable (5 out of 5)
Comments about my bra fitting experience:
Venice was INCREDIBLE. I asked for a 30FF based on the measurements, and when she saw what I was currently wearing (32DD), she said, "I wasn't sure when you asked for a 30FF, and I think you should try them, but I think you're a 30F. Let me bring you everything I can find." And she did! Freya, Panache, Chantelle. And they all fit perfectly. She is flawless. She has fitted me before (way back in 2009) and I appreciate her knowledge so much more now than I did back then.

Easton Town Center - Columbus, Ohio

At least some fitters use the plus four to five inches method, and they'll try to squeeze you into too small of cups if they do not have your size. They have a few bras up to UK GG cup, but, if you're an H or above, don't bother. They have some 30 bands, but they're few and far between. The fitters truly try to be helpful, but they're not very knowledgeable. Definitely measure yourself first, and try on bras on your own.

Washington Square - Tigard, Oregon

Store experience:
I was allowed to browse the store on my own
I was not sized at this store
The size(s)/range I was looking for during my visit was: 32-34DD/DDD
I would rate the selection of the size(s) I was looking for a: 3 out of 5
From what I can remember, the overall size range this store carried was: A-DDD
Comments about store experience:
Very many workers offering to help look for sizes, offer advice or fittings, etc. Smaller selection of bras than I expected, but a fair amount in my size. Bands as low as 30, possibly smaller than I missed.
Bra fitting experience:
I don't remember the name of my fitter
I would recommend this fitter to a friend
My fitter was pretty knowledgeable (4 out of 5)
My fitter was slightly pushy (2 out of 5)
My fitter made me feel super comfortable (5 out of 5)
Comments about my bra fitting experience:
My fitter was petite with blond hair, though I don't remember her name. Once in the dressing room, the fitter was offering to look over the bra while it was on for any problems with fit. The fitter seemed knowledgeable about brand quirks (e.g. running snug/small) and offered alternatives that might work better for me. Very personable and not pushy. (Fitter had also been incorrectly sized at Victoria's Secret!)

Pentagon City - Arlington, Virginia

Attendants are mostly friendly and helpful but not very knowledgeable of brands and sizes. One attendant pointed out that the $60 Freya bra would fit perfectly once I lost weight. As a H+ cup, it's a great way to see the new styles in person, however they rarely have my size. Sizes typically run 30 - 38 up to G cups. Definitely measure yourself first. Note that Nordstrom Rack is across the street and has an amazing collection of sizes including 30 bands and J cups.

Tyson's Corner - Fairfax, Virginia

Less than impressive selection of G+ cups. Most bras are 32-36 bands. Fitters are not very helpful and tend to suggest sizes that are clearly too small. Note - Make an appointment and go to the on-site Intimacy store instead.

Downtown Seattle - Seattle, Washington

Store experience:
I was allowed to browse the store on my own
I was correctly sized at this store
The size(s)/range I was looking for during my visit was: 36H
I would rate the selection of the size(s) I was looking for a: 3 out of 5
From what I can remember, the overall size range this store carried was: Up to 48I in one style
Comments about store experience:
I always have a good experience at this location. You are allowed to browse on your own or have someone help you try on bras and bring you different sizes, which I prefer, despite knowing my size. They seem to know what they're doing and I always get a good fit. The only downside is price. I am pleased they carry large cup sizes with smaller bands.
