Aviana Response:We are making these bras with USA manufactured fabrics in a USA owned plant in Costa Rica. We have very tight controls over every component of our bras. I assure you, they are not cheaply made. Our bras are strong and supportive all the way to 56 bands and M cups.
The seam will absolutely not pucker in a size that fits you correctly. I would agree that most USA bra manufacturers size their cups much smaller than the US standard sizing to which AVIANA adheres. I highly recommend you try another size – and even try one of our amazingly supportive softcups. If you try a size that fits you will be amazed by how great it looks and feels.

Yes Kelly! It is a great bra and I wish we made higher cup sizes in the very soft and comfortable, but very supportive, 2453. I bet we would earn 5 out of 5 stars if the size was right! We do make it's sister soft cup 2353 in 38J (almost identical except no wire), and believe me, with wide foam slings inside, these are very supportive cups. Most women think support comes from the underwire - it doesn't. Support comes from the band, and the underwire helps provide that nice rounded, separated shape we want. Our softcup bras, 2353 included, do a great job achieving this same look without the hassle of the wire. Everbody's going wireless - try it! C Webb Aviana

HerRoom Response:When a bra does not lie flat in the center, this is a sure sign your cup size is not large enough.
Generally speaking, when the bra doesn't lie flat between the cups, it is the wrong size. The most common reason is that the cup is too small. Since this bra doesn't go above H cup, it may not be the bra for you. You can try the 44H, just to get a larger cup size, but you may notice the bra not being as supportive since the weight in front will cause the band to ride up in the back. I suggest trying the Aviana 2353 in a 40J, 40K, or 42I. Once all the breast tissue fits in the cup, the band will not pull away from the chest. C Webb, Aviana.

HerRoom Response: You might be right that the style is not suited for you, but we suggest you try the smaller cup size.
