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.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. Aviana now makes this bra in black in your size. Jenna Marie from Scottsdale, AZ USA

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

Fabric is itchy and irritates the skin. The cups did not give the breast a natural shape.

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

Aviana Response: Sounds like you may have an uncommon alergy. Since 2002, Aviana bras have been produced without any latex to avoid the common latex alergy. Most customers find our fabrics very soft and comfortable. Although cotton offers very little support, and even less after the first wearing you may want to try a cotton bra or a 100% polyester sports bra. C Webb, Aviana Kay from Ventura

I found Aviana bras last year on this website, and they are the most comfortable bras I've found. The shoulder straps are comfortable and do not dig in. When I first bought an Aviana bra, I got it in a size 42, but found it to be a bit large. So this time I ordered a 40, and while it was a little snug the first few times a wore it, it is extremely comfortable now. Connie from Chicago

I've spent lots of money over the years trying to find a bra in larger sizes that provides adequate support and is comfortable. I've finally found it. The beautiful fabric is seamless under clothing. I'm very pleased. JessK from Providence, RI

I normally wear a 32F or G and I've always had difficulty finding a bra that fit properly. I finally found one that did, but now that I am pregnant, I am up to a 34I and they do not make it in that size! So I decided to try the Aviana Floral Soft Cup bra. The cups fit properly, it gives support and it is comfortable, so I'm thrilled. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I would like it to hold my bust up a little higher, but if I adjust the straps any tighter, they are uncomfortable. But I guess when you get up to an I cup, you can only fight gravity so much! Other than that, I love this bra. Heather from Sandy Hook, CT

This bra fits me very strangely. First, the shoulder straps cut into me in the front outside edge. I'd like to take the bra to a seamstress to get the straps shortened, but I'm afraid that would make it even worse. Second, I'm bulging out the top a bit, which means I need a larger cup size - but the bottom outside of the cups is wrinkling where there's extra material. I think this bra just isn't cut to fit my body. Too bad, because it's nice-looking and seems well made.

Aviana Response: Hi Elizabeth, Please do try your actual size before you decide it doesn't fit correctly! If you are bulging out of the cup - you aren't wearing the size you should. All breast tissue should fit comfortably into the cup. If you bulge, and there isn't a higher cup size in your band size, try one size higher band. This is not ideal, since the looser band will pull up in back by the weight of the breasts pulling down in front - but it's better than the "pillow" over the top of the cups.

I've been using the Aviana bras for about 2yrs now. They are so much more comfortable than the underwires, while providing even better support. I work a very active physical job, and these bras allow me more free movement and comfort. I especially like the fact that the connectors are made of metal--other bras plastic connectors break so easily. I do go through about 1 bra per month, but at my size, I've found that to be the case with any bra--all bras tend to stretch out fairly quickly with my very active job. HerRoom has been excellent at quick delivery, and if something is backordered, it is only for a short time, and they let me know quickly.

Aviana Response: Hi Dee, My advice - buy 4 bras and rotate them. 1 bra worn every day will last a month, but 4 bras rotated will last a year. Why? Because memory fabrics need a full day to dry and return to shape. If they are worn before completely dry, or worn repeatedly between washings, the memory fabrics stretch and never return to shape. Try it! C Webb, Aviana Dee from CT

It was extremely comfortable but the fabric used for the sides and back is way too stretchy to give proper support and shape.

Aviana Response: Hi Jae, Sounds like you may be using the wrong band size. Our bands are extremely supportive. Try the 38I! C Webb, Aviana Jae from West Virginia

I purchased these bras about a year ago and was very happy with the fit and support so when I needed to replace some I was thrilled to see HerRoom.com still carried them. The bras I bought two weeks ago were just as comfortable as I remembered my old ones to be. Customer service was great and I had no problems. Would definitely buy from them again.

I have a terrible time trying to find bras that fit. I don't like underwires and it is always hard to find a good soft cup bra, but I LOVE THIS BRA. I have had the lace one similar to this style, but I also purchased this one. It is my new favorite. The straps don't slide and I feel like I have good support, especially after breastfeeding 3 kiddos. Great Bra!!! ANA from Idaho US
