I love this bra and have been wearing them for 3 or 4 years. I'm so glad that Her Room carries them. For my large breasts they offer the most support and shapeliness that is possible. I highly recommend this bra. Sharon from Azalea, OR USA

Very comfortable. Seems like the band is a bit big, so I'm taking it in. Only about an inch though. Half of an inch on each side of the hooks in the back. Anonymous from Manitowoc, Wisconsin, USA

Gives the appearance of looking a size smaller than you actually are. Very comfortable with excellent support for a large heavy bust. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I liked the curved band so it wasn't resting on my stomach. That's about the only thing I liked. My breasts were lifted, but they were pushed down so much that they looked pointy. It did not make for a natural look. Also, the lace is very itchy. Kathy from USA

The bra did not fit at all and has no give. I will be returning the bra. I'm very disappointed. Carolyn from Shoreline, WA USA

The support is good, but the band doesn't seem like it's going to last too long because of the weight of my breasts. It crumples. Patti from Huntington NY

Great bra! First time I have been able to find full coverage that looks decent. I am giving this bra 4 stars because sometimes the strap slips and the bra rides up. Just needs a little adjustment. I bought two different bras from another brand and returned them for two more of this style. Definitely will be buying more of this style from HerRoom. They were great with the exchange . They emailed me to let me know that they received the merchandise and when they shipped the merchandise. Thanks HerRoom for carrying this style! Sharon

Bra is comfortable, as promised, but, as is typical for a wireless bra on a larger chest, offers no support. The middle section of the bra sags and doesn't even come close to staying near the middle of my breasts. Instead, it creates a uni-boob shelf type of situation. Might be very nice for smaller/normal cup sizes, but AWFUL for a large bust! Michal from Chicago

Very nice bra if you like soft cup. I personally prefer underwire for better support but this one is nice. Queen Lady L from New Orleans, LA USA

I absolutely hate when bra straps are not fully adjustable. I don't know what's wrong with my shoulder-to-bust ratio, but any straps that only have a couple of inches wiggle room are just way too long for me. I had this bra on for about 10 seconds before deciding to return it, so I can't really remember any other details, except for that it seemed non-supportive and not much of a minimizer -- but I might have felt differently if the straps were shorter.

I am very disappointed with this bra. I loved the look and thought it was just what I was looking for. However, I felt it made me look bigger than any other minimizer has done. I wore it one day. Since you really have to wear it to be sure if you like it, I cannot send it back. Nancy from PA

The site stated this bra ran large in the band, and suggested I order a smaller band with one-size up cup, which I did. The bra is pretty, but I could barely get it fastened because the band was too small, as was the cup, so following the suggestion on here resulted in my having to return the bra and reorder in my regular size.

There was no lift from this bra, which is needed for a larger bustline and the minimizing was minimal. I was disappointed. SLJ from West Point,MS

Love the bra. I've lost 125lbs in the last year, so my old bras were hard to obtain a measurement from. I kind of "winged it" on this bra, and am pretty happy. It's still a little loose around the middle (and still small in the cups), but I am VERY hard to fit. Interesting note about the bra, I could *not* hook it by reaching behind me no matter what I did. I'm pretty flexible, so this surprised me. I just couldn't pull it tight enough. I ended up doing what I did with my old bras (that made me look like I wasn't wearing one at all), and pulling them over my head. I'm VERY careful with this, however, afraid that I will damage the bra. The one BIG thing that concerns me is the lace on the front. It feels so flimsy! I've only washed these twice now, but I am worried that the lace won't last as long as I would hope for the price. The site however...I'm pretty impressed. I'm so glad I found HerRoom. Never found bras above a J...once I found a K...SOOOO happy I found this place, even if my bras were back-ordered for over 2wks! Ruthie from KC

Nice feminine looking garment--Can handle a pair of large heavy G/H cups. Deep cups help as well as the well placed side and lower cup panels for support. Do not try strenous activity-like a workout in this bra--My right side " girl" had a successful escape- out and down. Wish it had a couple of additional hooks in the back--to give that secure feeling. Straps are comfortable. Warning --this bra is nipple friendly. kay from nebraska

This is my third time ordering this style off bra and the second time in this size. This bra offers great support without wires and gives a nice round shape to the breasts. This is my go to bra and it is comfortable enough to wear all day. I just wished it came in more colors and larger cup sizes. Rita from Tallahassee

I tried this bra because it was considered a minimizer bra. I should have stayed with my previous bra choice. The bra just isn't comfortable for me. The straps feel like they are going to fall down all the time and it tends to ride up in the back. I couldn't return the bra because I needed to wear it an entire day to know how it fit me. I won't be wearing this bra.

Aviana Response: If the bra is riding up in the back then you do not have the correct band size. It is too big. The wrong size bra will never fit correctly. Remember that each brand fits differently and that the fitting charts are just a starting point. I would also suggest using the Universal Cup Size tool now available at HerRoom. Nancy from Illinois

I'm a fairly big cup size and this bra has a lot of support, especially for being wirefree. Very comfortable, really easy on the shoulders, and great support. I bought it in both blush and black and love it. Megan from Rockville, MD

I loved the item at first, but only having it a week the bra ripped. So am not very impressed with it. MLottes from McPherson,KS

I was so excited to find your site. I thought, finally, I would be able to find bras that actually fit! Having a small back, and large breasts, it is never easy to find them. I was so anxious to get the order. However, when I tried the bras on, all of them fit me like a demi cup. Not a single one came near to fitting me, and when I ordered, I ordered one cup size larger, just to be sure. The bra I have been wearing fits me well. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued. I put in the manufacturer and size, as your site instructed. It told me to order a 36DDD, still, the cups on the bra did't cover half of my breast. I was so disappointed.

X Response: I’m sorry that this bra did not work for you. It is intended to have a lower profile than some of our other styles and that could be your problem. Please remember that each brand and style fits differently. Size charts and measurements are just a starting point for bra fit. You need to try several sizes and styles within the brand to find the bra that works best for you. Lynda from Danville, CA

ive been looking for a minimizer bra in my size for a long time and have found nothing. luckily for me, my grandma, bless her heart, found this site and purchased this bra for me and surprised me with it just the other day. i asked her where she got it from and pointed me in the direction of this website. im surprised no one told me about it years ago. but i love this bra. i dont find alot of black bras in my size so its nice that i have one now that i can wear under black shirts. its really comfortable and the straps dont dig in. this is the first bra ive had lately that has been able to support my really heavy girls! the only downside i have is that it doesnt minimize, but i understand that that would take a lot for my size!

This was my second time ordering this bra. It still was a cup smaller than needed. I ordered the 40L last time, so this bra fits a little better. Other than the cup size it is my comfortable go to bra. Rita from Tallahassee Florida US

I like the Minimizer much better than the Soft Cup. Both are comfortable, but the Minimizer is much more true-size, in both band and cup. It doesn't have the lift of the Goddess Bras, but it does a very good job, and is much more comfortable. I do believe that I've found a new bra! Mishel from Florida

This bra is comfortable and fits nicely. There is only a medium amount of support, however clothes fit nicely over this bra. Ann from Utah

I received my bra. I tried it on and loved it. I washed it on gentle cycle in a lingerie bag. When I took it out, one of the side seams under the right arm was coming apart. Hugely disappointed. I have never had that happen to a bra before. It was easy enough to fix but I expected more, especially for the price. Kelly C from Jenks, OK

The bra was too large, and rather uncomfortable. It sat too low on my ribs. I am rather long waisted, but this just sat wrong on me. Cindy from canonsburg,pa.usa
