I'm trying to switch over from underwire to soft cup bras, but so far I'm not having any luck. Not quite enough support in this one. Also, the straps don't adjust enough for my height (I'm short). I'd maybe consider buying this again and having the straps shortened, but I'd rather buy something that fits. Also, it seems like every wireless bra I find, including this one, just comes up too high in the armpits. Maybe if you're taller, it's fine, but I'm not, and I prefer not to have a bra rubbing into my armpit - it's annoying.

Aviana Response: Soft cups like ours have a wide foam sling that actually provides more support than an underwire. If you're not getting enough support, then the band may be too big. Remember - you want the band very snug, and parallel to the floor. A snug band and proper strap adjustment is what gives you your support. Cushions can be adjusted by moving the flat slider into the front of the bra over the foam strap. Just work one side of the slider over the wide part of the strap into the position you want, then pull the strap through the back side of the slider and VOILA! Your strap is half the length it was. I hope that helps! Mk from San Francisco, CA

This is the 2nd of these bras I've ordered, but this time trying a different size and cup. As another review said, the cup does not tend to lay smooth. I believe the manufacturer comment was that the cup size was too big then. But in my case, a smaller cup would not work because this size already gives me a slight buldge at the cleavage. The bra has moderate, but not the best, support overall. For me, I'd just have to say it's okay. I doubt I will order another one.

Aviana Response: Aviana has personally fit this bra on hundreds of women, and in the right size, it supports beautifully with no wrinkling across the cup. I understand your frustration, but finding the correct bra style and size can take several tries. Not every style fits every body type. You might want to try our Aviana Soft-Cup Lace Bra 2352, which has a slightly smaller cup or even the Aviana Softcup Minimizer Bra 2357. They might fit your body type better. RRKenn from Kennesaw GA

If you have large breasts and can't cope with an underwire, this is the only bra that will do the trick. My only regret is that the bra is a little high and scratchy on the sides, but given my size that's the least of my concerns... The straps worked well for me: I am 5'1, and on many bras I can't shorten the straps enough. Rose from Tempe AZ

This bra was awful. There was absolutely no support anywhere in it.

Aviana Response: If the bra is not supportive then it is probably due to the fact that you have chosen the wrong size. The band should fit snugly across your back and be parallel to the floor and should not ride up. If it does, then the band is too big. Try a smaller band size. Lynda from Danville, CA

In my size range there are lots of highly structured bras that are a bit much for me, so I was happy to find this soft alternative. It's easy to put on because it's stretchy, and I like the natural rounded shape. Also the back band is plenty wide, with 5 hooks which are necessary for support. My only objection is the strap adjusters in the back, which slip out of adjustment and you can't fix them without taking the bra off. Otherwise it's very nice, especially when I can get it in black.

I love this bra - it's comfortable and offers good support. My only regret is that the cups pucker just a bit. Turns out, I'm right between cup sizes. I was straining the G and lacking a little for the H. Hopefully, I'll drop some lbs and be back in G soon. Chris from SE PA

This is the second one of these that I have tried. The cup was too large both times and I went down several cup sizes from what the sizing information would suggest I needed. I am sure this is the perfect bra for some, but not for me. Rebecca from Kentucky

This would be a fantastic bra if the band size was correct. I would order one order at least 3" smaller in the band than the sizing chart says to order. Tammie

This is a comfortable bra and generous cup sizes and band. From previous uses, it seems to be a durable and well-made bra as well. SherryP from Texas

I am full figured, short (only just made 'average' in height), and very busty. I find these bras fit wonderfully and are very comfortable for working outside, digging, etc. They provide medium support, it's not as rigid as an under-wire, but then nothing pokes you when you pick up a hay bale or jump into an archaeological pit either! The band size, on me, runs large. I should wear a 46, but in these I wear a 44 and one larger cup size than 'normal'. I've worn the larger band size before, and it didn't fit as well although it was still pretty comfortable and usable. Sima from WA, USA

The band size feels true, although I find the cup size to run a little big. It doesn't fit as well as the Aviana Minimizer. However, it is a *very* comfortable bra. I had previously only bought Goddess bras, but I have problems with the spines on the side curling and digging into my skin. Aviana doesn't have quite the lift of the Goddess bras, but does a good job. I will be switching to Aviana. Mishel from USA

Cups are much larger than the two Goddess bras I bought in the same size, and the band not nearly as snug. I washed it (so now it's mine forever), hoping that that would shrink it a bit, but no. I have it on right now at its tightest hooks and the back is halfway up to my neck. In the front the cups are all ripply and puckered. If wrinkly boobs and tugging constantly at your back band are the look you're going for, this is the bra for you. I can't wait to get home and set the girls free. Barbara from Iowa, USA

Even though I followed this site's sizing directions exactly, this bra did not fit. It was tight in the band and very loose in the cup. Another bra I purchased here fit just right so I assume the problem is with this bra. Please be careful when ordering. I have already returned this item. MrsC from Trenton NJ USA

I kept because I washed it, but I should have sent it back. I was hoping when I wash it, it would fit better but that didn't work so Im stuck with it. Shadow75 from Philadelphia Pa

Congratulations to Aviana for making bras which actually have big enough cups for those like me with ridiculously large breasts! Aviana makes underwire bras as well, but has soft cup bras in large sizes for those of us who can’t wear underwire! Hooray! I agree with other reviewers, and with the advice given by HerRoom, that you need to go down one size in the band for this bra. Unfortunately, though, I could not go up a cup size, as a K cup is the largest in this style of bra. (Yes, I have tried the minimizer (2357) in the larger size and will review that bra separately.) The five hooks at the back are excellent and necessary for back support in this size. This bra has reasonable support for a soft cup bra. The straps, while they are comfortable, do need to have better adjustment options. I will have to sew my straps up to make them about an inch shorter. So far, my sewing machine has been unable to do this, but I will try with another sewing machine. Because of this strap problem, this bra makes me a bit droopy in the breasts which is fairly common in my hard-to-fit size. It also means that the weight (8 or 9 pounds) all falls into the middle, putting pressure on the ribcage under each breast and in the middle. The bruising on my ribcage in this area makes it impossible to wear any bra for more than a few hours. Apart from that, this bra does fit: it contains most of the large breasts. There is no spillage at the side. And it is reasonably comfortable. Some more interesting colours would be nice. I have three black ones. On the whole, I am very happy with HerRoom. A very big thank you to all of you women (or ladies) who have written such helpful reviews! They have been so helpful for me ordering bras from overseas. Please don’t stop making this bra! All the good well-designed bras seem to get discontinued. I hope this one will be available for many years to come. SusanJ from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Unable to shorten straps sufficiently due to design, resulting in straps falling off shoulders. Don't know if getting a size smaller in the band would relieve the problem...shoulders are very narrow and I am short waisted, so i doubt it...bra doesn't seem to be made for petite women. Diane

I have worn an underwire bra for almost 40 years and am somewhat used to its uncomfortable-ness. I decided to try a wire free bra and bought this one. It doesn't feel like it provides enough support. It feels like a harness to me and its actually uncomfortable in a sort of comfortable way. It doesn't shape my breasts like an underwire bra does and it makes me look bigger than an underwire bra would. I really am on the fence about this bra. I will try another style of a wireless bra with the hopes that it will be better. The straps are problematic too - they only cinch the bra up just so far - I need more lift. Carol from California

Band runs large. Band rides up. It is nice to have a large cup size but it ran large also.

Aviana Response: : No bra is going to fit well if it's the wrong size for you. If the band is riding up, then the band size is too big. I'm also not surprised that you found the cup too big as well. They were designed this way so that the breast tissue doesn't pop out of the top or sides. Don't give up on the first try. I'd suggest that you try a smaller band and cup. Good luck!
