Beautiful, comfortable bra, but really difficult to fit for me. I'm typically a perfect 34B, but this was a bit tighter in the band than I like (I had to use the last clasp setting). However, when I ordered the 36B to compare, it was perfect in the band but gaped in the cup, so I stuck with the 34B. I wear Wacoal almost exclusively, and this is easily the smallest fitting style I've had from them. It's gorgeous, though!

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback! When you go up a band size, you will also need to go down a cup size to keep the same cup volume. Please watch our video, Your “Sister” Bra Sizes, for more information. Jeannette from USA

I really enjoy this bra it fits really well. I have two toddlers, one of which I just weaned. So my breasts are full on the bottom and not a whole lot on top. It is hard to find a bra that doesn't make me look off. The bra does make noise when you stretch, or move quickly. But with how cute it is, and the support it provides, I don't mind the noise.

This bra runs small- and I always wear a 34 band...it was uncomfortable. I was giddy when I first unwrapped the set, the bra, and matching panties. Immediately my pleasure turned to irritation. Both, the bra and panties run small. This brand is not made for hourglass figures. It's so disheartening, because it's a beautiful, very sensual, fun looking set. Emily from Hillsboro, OH. U.S.

Gorgeous bra! I noticed a little bit of spilling over, but not enough to be able to fill out the next size up, and it was fixed as soon as I wore the bra for a couple hours. I was worried that the straps would not be able to hold up my breasts as I am fairly large for my size, but even with the pretty shoulder straps and only a 2 hook closure in the back, I feel very supported in this bra. The front seam in the cups is a little thick and more noticable under thin clothing than I expected, however, the fit is phenomenal. Jackie from Indianapolis

This is one of the first bras I ever picked out because I thought it was pretty (when I was in high school), and I still like to wear it now. It functions almost like a push-up without any of the extra foam that I usually dislike. This bra doesn't stretch much (band or straps) so while I would usually be a 34D in Wacoal I wear a 36D in this. Elizabeth from IN

This bra was highly recommended on a few websites for women with shallow breasts, but unfortunately I still couldn't fill it out. But if you can fill out a normal bra- it is very pretty. :) Becky from San Antonio, TX

Followed advice in reviews & went up a cup size (I'm a 32B normally; ordered 32C). This is my first balconette bra--I wish there were more balconette styles made for very small women. Wow! Is it silly to call a piece of lingerie "encouraging"? :) I cannot believe how beautiful this bra is and how beautiful I feel in it! I did not know I could look like this after having had (and nursed) several kids! I am petite and slender with a very small chest, but the babies have left me rather floppy now and I often have some "spillage" from the upper cup edges of lower-cut/demi/plunge-style bras, even though my breasts are wide-set. I wanted a flattering lower cut with no tell-tale little bumps like I get from plunge bras. This is EXACTLY what I wanted! I look so youthful, lifted, smooth, and perky in this little number. No spillage whatsoever, no matter what crazy moves I make with the kiddos! It is an unbelievable combination of comfort and beauty. I can't normally wear underwire (torso is too short so the wires cut into me), but I can't even feel it except slightly in the center, where the wires come up on the gore. Only "complaint" is that you can clearly hear a funny creaking sound when you move suddenly in this, I think from the underwires. It is audible to others especially if you suddenly pull both arms back at the same time. :( Hopefully if I order more of these, I will find that is just a peculiarity of this particular one, not all of them.

I'm so impressed and pleased with this bra! This is the greatest combination of comfy and sexy. It's a truly gorgeous bra, and I love that it's not over-padded and bulky. The padding is light, but effective, and the band is wide and supportive. As with most b.tempt'd bras, you probably want to GO UP a cup size, and it will fit perfectly. I'm a 30E, which would technically fall under the DD range according to the size chart, but with this and another racer back I have from them, I went up and definitely could not have done smaller. Anyways, you can't beat the price for a bra of this quality and just all-around prettiness! Jenna from Georgia

I like the look of this bra, but the shape of the cups didn't quite work for me (they're a bit too short). Plus the straps are quite wide and felt as though they wouldn't stay put very well.

b.tempt'd Response: The Ciao Bella style is a demi balconette so this style will not offer as much capacity. A balconette style has wider set straps for a open décolletage. If you prefer a different shape try B Sultry 953261. Erin

I love all of the cross-dye colors this bra comes in. Unfortunately, all of the pretty pinks, oranges and reds are not manufactured in my size. Please, please, please make more options in 30DD and 28 band sizes. B. tempted is one of the only lines that makes bras my size or close to my size that does not look grandmotherly. I need some cute bras, so please make them in 28 and 30 DD and DDD's in the spicy colors! I didn't give this review a star rating because other people whose size the colors do come in will be very happy and have no problems with this. Missy from Peoria, IL

Ordered for my wife. This bra is so feminine, and looks fabulous on her. It really lifts and she says is comfortable as well. Will order another color for her Matt from USA

This bra is beautiful. It is very comfortable as well. It has good coverage so everything remains in place but looks good. I have worn it under thicker t-shirts and it is fine. Karin from California

This, along with the matching panty, was bought as a gift for a friend who is soon-to-be married so I can't comment on the fit. I will say that it looks even better in person. Its gorgeous. Marisa from Missouri

This is a BEAUTIFUL bra. Unfortunately, I had to return it. While the underwiressat flat under and around my breasts and the center gore sat flat against my chest, the band BENEATH the wires rolled out and forward, away from my body. Like a teeter-totter: cups went up and in, band went out and forward, and enough so that I could place a pencil between me and the hem of the bra band in the front. I don't know if it's just because the bra does not fit my shape (tall, thin, with shallow wide-base breasts) or if there was some other issue, but back it went. Beatiful, comfortable, fit pretty well in the cups (which is always a challenge for me) and fit around the back, just that weird rolling in the front. Stephanie from Richland/Washington/USA

This is my favorite bra in the world. I never thought I would treat a balconette bra as an everyday bra, but here it is. It is absolutely the most comfortable bra I own, while still being supportive and good to look at. I own two of them, and it's longline equivalent. I absolutely recommend it. Jacky from Dallas

This bra is very sexy, and has nice structure and support. The fit could be a little better on me but it gets the job done. As soon as I put it on I felt cute and sexy, so it's great to have a lovely bra that feels great. One negative is that the design makes it so that you can't wear it with any shirt - for example the lace would be seen through a thinner or tighter top. At first I thought it made it look like you could see my nipples through the shirt (as if I wasn't wearing a bra) but I just realized that as long as you wear it with the right top, you're fine! This is really a great bra despite my few negatives. I recommend it especially for slightly bustier women who love a cute bra :) Sarah from USA

I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers, and ordered a cup size larger than I normally would. I'm glad I did, because it fits perfectly. It's very cute, perfectly comfortable, gives nice shaping and support. I will be buying this bra again in more colors. Greta from USA

What a wonderful bra! The cups are so soft on the inside and the elasticity of the bands is perfect. It's like it's not even there. I hope this bra will last me forever and I think I might buy another one. I also hope they become available in bigger cup sizes. W from Amsterdam, NL
