I ordered this is both colors and I'm finding that the black fits better than the candlelight. The candlelight doesn't lift and separate as nicely as the black. Overall, I like the black one but I think I might need a smaller band as it still slips around a bit but the girls fill the cups nicely. I also miss underwire but I guess we can't have everything.

Aviana Response: Black fabrics are often a bit tighter before they are washed. This is a result of the way the fibers are soaked, and the phenomenon usually disappears after the second washing. In a fitting room situation, I always insist on using the lightest available color for this reason. So you may need a smaller band in both colors since the black one is destined to be a bit larger. This is a very small difference in size, so you may also be exactly halfway between sizes. In that case, you may also want to choose the smaller size so that the bra will fit over the longest possible period of time. Although Aviana bras are very strong, over time and with wearing and washing, they will stretch.

Had to go down a band size and up a cup size. But seems like it might work. I'm not used to soft cups so it will take some getting used to.

Aviana Response: Yes, the Aviana 2353 runs slightly bigger in the band than most bras. The differential measurement remains the same - so yes, when the band is a size smaller, you need a cup size larger. Alicia from Nacogdoches, TX USA

This is one big bra. Of course, it's full coverage, but it hits really high on my chest. The cups are slightly large, but ok for the purpose - comfort, comfort, comfort. That said, it's also one comfortable bra. Nice surprise. Diana from Naples, FL

This might be my new bra. I miss the support of underwire however I think if I fix a few of the problems with this bra it'll be fine. The girls aren't spilling out of the sides or the top and the band nearly hits my rib cage and the band seems a little too loose. I think I may need to go up one cup size to remedy the rib cage problem and go down a band size for a tighter fit. My only other problem is that the bra keeps slipping forward allowing the girls to droop. I'm not sure but could that just be a cup size problem?

HerRoom Response: Your symptom sounds more like your band is too large. If the cups fit properly, you should go down a band size and up a cup size to maintain the same cup volume. Alicia from Nacogdoches, TX USA

The back of the bra pulls way up and the cups were way too large.

HerRoom Response: Your symptoms indicate you chose a size that was too large for you in both band and cups. Barbara from CA

I love the fit of this bra. I've found sizing to be a problem with other brands, as they tend to run small, but not this one. It's a great fit and really comfortable! Lauren from Canada

WOW! I have found my bra FINALLY!!!!!! after reading all the reviews so many were like reading about my own body issues with bras...so decided to try it. I ordered a 40 I in black I loved it!! I can't wear underwire it jabs into me and is very uncomfortable this bra lifted , separated and was comfortable from the first try on! I realized after a few wearings that I had gone to big in my band size as I was finding it to ride up my back some even on the tightest hooks and my breast would be drooping by the end of the day. So I went back to reading the reviews and the responses from the company and decided to listen to the one recommendation to another customer and go down a band size and up a cup size so I ordered a 38 J which came today I put it on an hour ago and haven't take it off I'm thrilled with this bra!!! I will be ordering yet another one tonight!! Thank you Aviana for a WONDERFUL fitting bra! No doubt read the reviews and comments from the company to find a GREAT fit! Alli from NJ

When I first put this bra on I loved it. There was support and no popping out in the wrong places. As the day wore on the bra shifted and the straps got longer and things started to droop. This could just be a size problem but I don't think I will be wearing this bra out of the house LeeAnn from Chatham,NJ

I have found my perfect bra! Comfortable, nice shape, fantastic support. Rigid straps, a must for large breasts, but padding in straps is comfortable. The coverage is better than any other bra I have tried. No more back bulges. I am buying 5 more. Chris from Sunnyvale/CA/USA

I am really having trouble finding one that fits properly, first one I ever wore a few years back was great but now not sure what problem is. First one band size too big, second one band size ok but it rolls so it is very irritating under breasts, can't adjust shoulder straps enough is part of problem. I shortened them once but that didn't work so don't know what to try now. haven't even unpacked the newest one due to all these issues. very frustrating and not sure what kind to order next.

HerRoom Response: Your size is very unusual. We suggest you get a professional fitting.

Aviana Response: You can try shortening the straps more, but it sounds like you may need to try yet another size. To shorten the straps, move the front part of the slider over the wide part of the strap and place it anywhere you want it, then move the back side of the slider onto the wide part and tighten. You can put the slider in the front of the bra, making the straps half their original length. Your band should not be rolling, and may be a sign you need to keep searching for the exact right size for you. Vicki from Bend OR USA

I am normally a 40H but was buying this for comfort/leisure so went up to 42H. The fact that it is a soft cup bra means it does not give me quite the lift and separation I get from my underwire bras, BUT...so far this is the best soft cup I have tried. I decided to keep it and now that I have worn it a few times I really like it for those times when you just have to get out of the wire but still want to look decent. The fabric is strong, pretty and comfortable. Not as silky or soft as some, but nice enough. The strong fabric, I think, is what makes this soft cup give better results than the silkier, stretchier soft cups.

Aviana Response: Hi Barbara. Softcup doesn't have to mean you can't get lift and separation! In fact, the underwire is not what gives you lift - it's the snug band that allows the breasts to stay as high as you want them. So when you use a 42 band, instead of 40, you are allowing the breasts to fall, and "pool" in the center front. Sounds like you love the bra, just need the right size! Please remember ladies - the bra isn't supposed to fit correctly if you are wearing the wrong size!!! C Webb - Aviana. Barbara from Charlottesville VA

The bra lacks support for me and cuts oddly across the top. I was disappointed in the shape of the cup and how it fits my breasts. I'll wear this around the house when I need a break from underwires and but never outside of the house.

HerRoom Response: We notice that you are petite in height. Unfortunately, this could be the problem because your torso is shorter. We have forwarded your comment on to Aviana.

Aviana Response: Hi Wendy, Perhaps you aren't shortening the straps enough? Try moving the slider to the front of the bra to get more lift. Also, when you say "lacks support" I'm wondering if the band fits snugly enough. This bra is also available in 32 bands and might be worth a try. C Webb - Aviana Wendy from GA

I finally did the full fitting process described by Her Room and found out why I can never find bras in my size. I'm a 44K (actually, more like a 44M) and have been trying to squeeze into 44H's all these years. Anyway, I was excited to try this bra because I've loved Aviana bras in the past. It fit pretty well, although there was still some spillage because I can't find a bra in my cup size. However, it made my breasts look like torpedos. I have never seen them so pointy in my life. I put a t-shirt on over the bra just to see if it would look okay under clothes, and no way! It projects my breasts out WAY too far and makes them super pointy. I felt like Madonna. I would love to find this exact same bra in a softer, rounder cup, even if that means slightly less support. Like another reviewer said, this is definitely NOT a minimizing bra. Tomima-not sure on this one, she says she is a 44K, but more like a 44M and then complains about spillage......... Shari from California

I love the Aviana bras they are as close to not wearing one that a large busted gal can get in my opinion. This one is not the right size but since I took tags off and wore it I am stuck with it but it will do as I await two different sizes. It felt right when I put it on nice separation, stayed in place but as day wore on it rode up, so too big band size and soon no separation so cups too small. I will find the right size though. Despite all these are my favorite bras. Vicki from Bend

This bra is what I have been waiting for. Underwire support without the underwire pain. Soft and VERY comfortable. I usually cannot wait to take off my bra. Now I forget I have this one on. A huge Thanks to my sister for recommending this bra Paladinette from San Diego

I thought the cups ran big. I just bought a Chantelle in 30G and an Anita in 32F and they fit me well, but this Aviana 32F was much too big.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for this feedback. We have forwarded your comment to Aviana.

Aviana Response: We agree that European companies make slightly smaller cups. They can vary as little as a quarter cup, and as much as a full cup size from the American bra companies. It is sometimes necessary to try another size when trying to get the perfect fit in different styles and manufacturers. The jacquard on the Lunaire bra you mentioned is very similar to the jacquard on the Aviana 2353, but the Aviana rounded cup shape is very different from the more pointed Lunaire. The cotton sling is very soft, but our wide foam slings, with proper care, will continue to lift and separate even K cups for years! We appreciate your feedback and hope you'll try us again in the future. -C Webb, Aviana" Ann from California

This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn! It gives great support, the band does not roll and the "natural rounded shape" it gives looks really nice. No Cadillac bumpers here!! I am thrilled to FINALLY discover one so wonderful! Peaches from Kents Store Va USA

I have been wearing this bra for 10 years, but the last one I purchased was a weird shape. Since I removed the tag and washed it first, it is my "around the house" bra. I will continue to purchase them, however, as it is the BEST fitting bra for short, full figured women! Diane M from Hawthorne, NJ

This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn in my current size! When I first took it out of the package, my first thought was that the straps would be uncomfortable, because they didn't look as wide as other plus-size bras - however, I was very mistaken! They feel great, and neither dig nor slide. The back is very thick, which keeps the bra in place and redistributes weight off your front/shoulders so that your back and abdominal muscles are carrying a portion as well, which means less pain at the end of the day. For a soft-cup (no wires), the lift and shape are also very impressive. And even the fabric is lovely. I would note that, as other reviewers have indicated, the cup size runs 1 to 2 sizes small, so you'll want to order the next cup size up. I also wish that my size was available in the black color. I will definitely be ordering several more of these.

I too noticed the strange pucker at the center seam line and am glad that I wasn't the only one noticing it! I also thought that the arm adjusting was way too small until I fastened the bra and said "ahh!" This is a fantastically comfy bra but in my cup size, the weight of my breasts just ruin any good "lift" this bra could give me. Still, though, I got good definition, ie-no una-boob, and if I could get more lift, it would be perfect! I heard that Fancee Free bras give great lift for larger sizes so I will try them for the days I dress up and stay w/this for around the house (you CAN'T find a more comfy and secure bra). Would have given 5 stars if it lifted but it is still awesome! :)

HerRoom Response: Thank you Heidi. We have forwarded your comments to Aviana for a response.

Aviana Response: Hi Heidi - keep in mind that the straps are infinitely adjustable! This means that the slider can be moved onto the wide part of the strap. Just move the top side of the slider over the thicker edge, place it where you want it, then pull the strap through the bottom side of the slider. You can put the slider in the front. This has no effect on the fit or feel of the strap - in fact - it gives the strap even more padding. The pucker across the cup is caused by the sizing in the fabric and normally goes away after the bra warms to body temperature, or has been washed once. C Webb, Aviana Heidi from KY

Most comfortable bra ever. It is very hard to find a comfortable yet supportive bra in my size. Most either dig into my shoulders or I have to constantly readjust because they lack support and do not stay on correctly. I am very happy with this Mary A from NJ
