High quality item, the only bra/bustier I found that offers the support I need in the front, with the low dipped back. Will be gorgeous under my wedding dress! Jessica from Nashville, TN

I really like this item for several reasons. First, I like how there is only three closure hooks. Some other longline bras have 7 or more and the closures are in the back, and it is difficult to get them all done up sometimes depending on the bra. Second, it smooths my muffin top. This is very important for me. Third, it is not as long as some longline bras are. The negative: depending on the material I wear the decoration on the bra can be seen through my clothing. But overall, this is a good item and worth the money. Heather from Des Moines/Iowa/US

The quality of this garment was fine, it just didn't fit me properly. The cups did not provide enough lift. Maybe that's just the nature of low back strapless bras...The waist band created a muffin top so I would only be able to wear this with a full skirt to cover that. I returned it and did not try another size. Jeanie from California

Was torn when arrived. Had to sew it myself as needed for wedding and no time to return. Also, bottom rolled up easily.

Carnival Response: We are sorry to hear about the damaged bra that you received. Since every garment shipped is inspected by both our QC dept and reinspected by the Herroom QC dept the only possible explanation must be that the damage happened during the shipping process. Michele from Manheim, PA

Needed this for a prom dress, went to so many stores and couldn't find a thing. Your website had so many options to choose from! Thank you. kathy from NJ

Great bra..... the band was a little snug, but it worked perfect for my key hole back wedding dress. Christine from West Chester

I loved this product. I needed something for a wedding that would hold me up and every other product I tried did not work. I kept sagging and it was a very unflattering look. With this product, I had enough support that I was no longer sagging and actually kept up quite well. I would recommend this for anyone in a wedding that has bigger breasts and needs support, without showing straps or a back. There is a back, but its so low that it wasn't even shown. The only downside to this is that it makes it harder to eat since you are so sucked in while wearing this product but it definitely works. I wore it as a bridesmaid from probably about 2pm-1am and it stayed in place completely. I definitely recommend this product. Antoinette from San Diego/CA/USA

Be sure to measure yourself as the bustier is very snug and as others said, can create a "muffin top". Since I am only 5'1" I figured the length of this would be ideal but it does only hit just at the waistline right by your navel. I returned this item for a longer bustier and went one size up after measuring myself and comparing it to the sizing chart. The cups fit but the bustier itself was too tight.

Carnival Response: You are 100% correct. This body was made to cover up to your naval. The picture shows exactly that. Also if you are not sized correctly and the bra is too tight on you, depending on your body shape, it may create a “muffin top”. Based on your comment you would have been better served with a size 36. Alyson from Cleveland/OH/USA

Seems to fit true to size. I always wish the actual cup had absolutely no decoration so it would be smooth and this one is pretty good and has just a little but I kept it anyway.

Carnival Response: You should try our Carnival Invisible Plunge Longline Bra 206. It is the same body but completely seamless. Marilyn from Rock Hall.MD

Cup size fits and will be great with my sweetheart neckline. The bottom elastic band is very tight- but that helps it to sit in the right spot. Katie from Davie, FL

I needed a bra that provided support for my "girls" and was also unseen by my bridesmaid dress for a wedding I was in. The bridesmaid dress had a low back and I was having the hardest time finding a good bra that would hold me up and not be shown. I must have returned about 5 other bras before finding this one. This one, I got at practically the last minute and had it expediated to me to ensure I got it in time for the wedding. When I tried it on w/my bridesmaid dress, I was very impressed. It not only held me up but was also unseen in the back. On the day of the wedding, I must have been wearing it for 12 hours and it never broke and still kept me up. This is a great bra if you're looking for something that provides support for bigger "girls". Thank you HerRoom for being the answer to my bra-prayers! Antoinette from San Diego/CA/USA

Pretty but fit was a bit awkward, and the band was visible above my (very low) backless dress. Think I may have bought a bit small, as it was very tight in the middle; consider sizing up in the band if you're a little curvier. Cups also didn't lie flat and didn't provide as much push-up as I would have liked.

Carnival Response: We think you would be happier with Carnival Satin Backless Longline Bra 303, it would be a more flattering bra for your shape. Kirby

Doesn't fit. I was sized at a different store and told I was a 32B, but this was definitely smaller than myself. Of course I had already taken off the tags by the time I realized how small it was.

Carnival Response: We are sorry to hear that this item did not work for you. This style has been on our line for the last 30 years. It is also one of the best selling Carnival bras on HerRoom.com. Cheryl from Tampa, FL

The sides hit me in a weird spot on my waist, it wasn't smoothing at all. I'm in good shape but it created a bulge on my sides.

Carnival Response: It seems to me that you should either be wearing a 38A or 38B. Sometimes when the back is too tight this style can cause bulging. Jamie from NY NY

I'm 5'1" 120lbs 26" waist and have an average length torso. This bra fits true to size, but I felt the cups were slightly large. It looks great and fits perfectly throughout the rest of the bra. I would suggest going with your regular size, because I don't think a 32/34C would have fixed the slight looseness of the cups. I think it would have just been too small with those sizes.

This was among one of the best strapless bra that I have bought. The ones at mall stores have nothing compared to this one, at least in just the support the bra has. It is true to its size and as still able to give me the support I need. Plus, the Low Plunge in the back lets me wear backless dresses without sacrificing the push I need. The only bad is that I have sort of a muffin top and the bra does not reach down to my hip, but instead only just right below my belly button. This creates a very odd bottom shape when I wear tight dresses because the bra features a corset but squeezes my lovehandles. Overall, a good purchase. Ms. L. from New York, NY

I purchased this bra for my daughter who will be attending her prom in May 2012. She's wearing a halter low cut in the back gown and needed a low plunge bra. This bra fits her like a dream. I can't comment on the comfort yet because she has not worn the bra yet. I will return later to update my review. winisay from Baltimore

I purchased this bra to wear with my low backed wedding dress. I tried it on with the dress and was pleased to see that it was all covered. I felt comfortable walking around (support wise)...we'll see how it goes on the dance floor! Molly from Milwaukee, WI

Fits true to size. Once you get it on properly and adjust yourself the bra stays in place perfectly. Really helps eliminate "back fat" versus most strapless bras I have tried. acl from vancouver, BC, Canada

Runs somewhat big in the band, and a fuller cup than what I was expecting. I am planning to wear this with my wedding dress. I would like to note that the "ivory" color I expected was more of a yellow-off white shade. Overall I think this is going to work out well. Comfortable and supportive. Laura from West Virginia

Would not hold breast in place.

Carnival Response:There is a solution to this problem: When wearing this or any corset you should put the corset on fully and then bend over while pulling the cups forward. Once you straighten your body up, your breasts will fill the cup entirely from the top down and you will not have the illusion or feeling of cups leaning forward. After doing the following, pull the corset down by the bottom band. This should help your breasts stay in place better and also make the garment fit better, in general. Grace from Menifee
