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

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
