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

Good range of sizes, but not comfortable because of lace on the bottom edge of bra (between breasts) Need to sew in soft cotton cover to protect this area, so design needs improvement. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This bra does not have a lot of support but it is very comfortable, almost feels like you're not wearing one and I haven't experienced that for many years. Vicki from San Antonio, Texas US

LOVE THIS BRA.... try it. Can't say it minimizes anything, but then nothing short of a knife could... very comfortably and fits really well! monica from wv

This bra does not offer a lot of support. There are only three hooks in the back. Two more hooks would be better for larger fuller and heavier breasts. Also, the cups do not cover well with the sheer section. It was nice that the bra has colors to choose from. As an African American woman with large breasts, it is difficult to find larger cup size bras in black. This is a nice bra to wear around the house.

Aviana Response: You might want to try the Aviana soft cup bra 2353 in size 42K. This bra is the strongest, most supportive bra made in this size range. The 2357 was introduced as a pretty alternative in this size range. The more delicate embroidered material is very nice under sheer clothes, and the lift from the internal sling helps give support. It’s minimizer cup helps reduce overall projection - and fewer hooks were put in this style to reduce the amount of bra under the arms. Rita from Tallahassee FL

I love this bra! I purchased it before, it gives me just enough support without underwires. Not as strongly constructed as some that I've worn that make me look like I'm in a opera with horns on my head but it's very supportive. I would recommend that you buy true to your size as the cups are generous yet keep the "girls" contained. Diana from Laurel/MD

I returned this bra as I didn't realize it did not have underwire. It offered no support or shaping whatsoever.

Aviana Response: Some body types require underwire – many do not. Sounds like you should try the Aviana minimizer bra 2457. The 2357 on the right body gets 5 out of 5 stars! Vanessa from Claremore, OK

I use it as a sleep bra. Very pretty & comfortable. I don't know if I would find it to be supportive enough for everyday wear, as the band rises up between my breasts instead of laying securely on my ribcage. That happens for me with any non-underwire bra, no matter the size band or cup. I had hoped this bra wouldn't do that! Lisa K. from New York, NY USA

I bought this bra after reading some of the stellar reviews. Unfortunately, this garment didn't work for me at all. While very pretty, it made the girls look weird, kind of splayed out like water wings, not very attractive and the lace tore the second time I wore it. All is not lost however, I did use it as an "underbra" beneath another less sturdy number and voila' I did obtain lift. If you have a heavy bosom, I would not recommend this bra. Geri from Wisconsin

The best bra I have found yet! Finally one that fits! Straps are comfortable and don't dig! That's amazing! Only wish that it was a little less fragile, I don't know how long it will hold up. Lynn from OC, CA

I was really looking forward to getting this bra, based on the comments from other people that were on the website. I was very disappointed when I received the bra. It was flimsy and did not have any support. Terrible, especially for the price. I sent it back for a refund.

Aviana Response: The 2357 is very supportive, but we agree it has less structure than the ŭber-supportive softcup, style #2353. This 2357 bra is intended to lift, separate, and minimize, all in a pretty bra that looks good under the sheerest blouse. It has a lower center front, lower underarms and thinner cup fabric. We certainly wouldn't call it flimsy, since we've seen it lift and hold a size 44M fit model, but it wasn't built to be what you were looking for. Please try the Aviana 2353 or 2352 to get more of what we like to call "oomph". Jen from Oklahoma City, OK

This bra is comfortable, especially the straps. For a petite woman I had no problem with the sides being too tall or anything associated with having a short torso. The minimizer effect was good in that I had less of the protruding look. I will buy this style bra again. Diana from Laure/MD

As with the other style I tried in this brand, LOVED this bra, but had to RETURN it because even with them fully extended the straps were too short for me, which is often a problem for me. I have tried other styles in this brand and had the exact same problem :( Great bra, otherwise, very soft and comfortable, excellent construction, good separation! Shoulders comfortable too, if straps hadn't dug in on me. Ed's mom from Floyd County Virginia

This bra is almost paper thin and cannot give the uplift and support needed. I had to send it back. Robin from W-S, NC

I can never find a bra that fits actually how I want a bra to fit but this Aviana bra is the closest to the ideal bra I seek. Since I have a large cup size all my past bras did not hold my chest up and no one likes to look like they are not wearing a bra when they are wearing a bra. I ordered two of these bras and glad I did. These bras are pricey but I intend to order three more when Herroom runs a promotion on this brand since this Aviana bra holds up my chest the best. Now I look better in my clothes instead of 'droopy'. Plus I love that this minimizer bra does what it says and gives the appearance of looking a size smaller than you actually are...great for us over-busted women. Hope this review helps you.

This is a very comfortable bra and I have tried many to fit my large, wide breasts. The minimizer really is a blessing. The shoulder straps are very wide and comfortable. I finally found my perfect bra and have no reason to return my order due to poor fit. In fact, I just ordered another one. Thank you. Elizabeth from Fleming Island, Fla.

I finally found the perfect bra for me and I have tried many! It's very light weight and extremely comfortable, especially for larger side of breasts. The bra truly does minimize my bust. I highly recommend this bra to women with very large and wide breasts. I am almost afraid to recommend it because I want it to always be in stock when I reorder my next Bra.

After wearing this bra for 5 hours my shoulders get very tired. It does not hold me up near as well as my other bras.

Aviana Response: Without more information about the fit, I can't offer much advice. I assume it doesn't fit properly, or that this style is just not the style for you. There are thousands of bra styles and hundreds of sizes for a reason - we are all shaped differently. I appreciate you giving the Aviana best seller 2357 a try, and I'm sorry you didn't find luck with it. This style does fit most of the women who give it a try - especially in the I cup.

This is my go-to bra when my shoulders start to hurt or I need a different look under my clothes. The fact that it's a soft-cup makes it comfortable, and it's also pretty. Nice bras at this dimension are so very rare that I really appreciate having this one as an option. Submitted from TheUndies.com

totally deceiving on the size!!!! its like 3 sizes too small! WOW

HerRoom Response: This is a minimizer. Perhaps you are not familiar with the fact that a minimizer reduces your projection.

Aviana Response: The cup shape of the 2357 minimizer allows more capacity at the sides and under the arm. The cup does have a shallower projection than our super-roomy 2353, but the full cup capacity is identical. If your shape is "all up front" I do suggest moving to a higher cup size in this bra. a-rod

This bra is amazing. I have a really hard time finding bigger cup size in minimizer bras (which makes NO sense to me!!). I am really pleased with the fit. I ordered a band size down and a cup size up, as recommended- I could have done a bigger band size though. I do feel like it minimizes. Great product, now if you can only get it in SEAMLESS! Big busted girls like smooth cups bras for t shirts and lighter materials too! Seems like there is always a seam going right down the middle that is visible with most bigger cup size bras. The seamless ones never come in big enough sizes. That is why I only gave 4 stars, very close to a home run. Sandra from Chicago, IL

Gave it a 3 though really it is a nice bra, very attractive, and if it had fit I'd probably give it 5 stars. My own fault for not paying better attention to the size I entered....But, for those looking for an attractive minimizer, this would fit that requirement. MLT from Florida
