Aviana Response: Hi Robin,
I work at Aviana - I wear a 40K - and I AGREE! Enough with the candlelight!!! We are currently working on a new bra and you will find it on www.Herroom.com early next year. It will be a beautiful blush color, and it will have gorgeous embroidery. Here's hoping we get it all the way to L cups - so keep checking back with this great retailer and you might find just what you want in early 2009! C Webb, Director of Sales & Marketing, Aviana

Aviana Response: Hi Lu,
The 2350 was sporting some heavy duty latex rubber inside the cup, rather than foam. It is very harsh on the delicate underside of the breast and was causing problems with yeast for customers. We do not use any type of rubber in our bras yet they have ample support in cup sizes all the way to K. C Webb, Director of Sales & Marketing, Aviana

Aviana Response: Hi Kim,
We have K cup women who believe it's the most supportive bra they've ever worn. Perhaps you needed a smaller band size? Underwires don't actually provide support - they provide shape. Support comes from the band fitting snugly and the straps staying in place. Aviana bras all have straps set closer in the back to keep them from falling off the shoulder. You may want to try our 2457 or 2452 underwire bras. C Webb, Director of Sales & Marketing, Aviana

Aviana Response: Hi Mel,
Sounds like the band is too small if you can't even feel it. To achieve support you must have a snug band. Try a 38J or 38K - maybe even a 36K. C Webb, Director of Sales & Marketing, Aviana

HerRoom Response: We appreciate your feedback and have forwarded your comments to Aviana,
Aviana Response: Aviana Response: Thank you for your feedback. It's true that the Aviana 2353 runs a little larger in the band than similar competitive bras. It is also made of a much softer yet very supportive material, making it a more comfortable all-day fit. I highly recommend trying a smaller band size (choose 1 band size smaller and 1 cup size larger). We regret any sewing defect in the strap. These defects are rare, and replaced immediately when we are notified. Concerning the elastic in the band, all Aviana bras have infinite adjustability and rigid straps. This means you can move the slider onto the wide part of the strap and it will stay there permanently - even through the wash process. It should not move during the day. Our garments are made very carefully with the highest quality fabrics. When hand washed and line dried, left hanging dry for 24 hours between wearings, not exposed to unusual wear, and worn no more than 3 times per week, these bras should last at least a year. We have reports of the bras lasting more than 5 years.
HerRoom Response: It's a simple fact that the more seams in a bra's cups, the greater the support. With larger cup sizes there is a trade-off between support and seamless cups. One solution to hide cup seams is to wear a camisole over your bra.
HerRoom Response: Since early 2004, this Aviana bra style has been made with only metal rings.
