It fit well and it has an easy removal system my boyfriend figured out fast. What a night we had. Tina from WI

The sizing seems to be off. I ordered a 34B, which is my bra size. It was too large in the belly and waist, but fit okay in the bust area. I exchanged for the 32B, which was perfect for my waist, but made my boobs look weirdly flat with funny cleavage. I will not bother to return again because the expense is not worth it.

Carnival Response: Based on your comment, you would be better served with a 32C. When experiencing a corset that is too large in the waist with the correct fit in the boobs you should go down one back size and up one cup size. Kay from Wyomissing, PA

Comfortable. Arrived quickly, as exactly as described on site. As I am some what between a C and D cup, I ordered the D and will be putting in those pushup cups from another bra to give me a more sex-kitten look. Bride to Be from Canada

I was in need of some 'help' after buying a strapless dress that would be worn to my nieces wedding. Do wish some bra's would have a little less space between the cups so as to enhance the cleavage though. Diane from Pennsylvania

I thought the fit was pretty much spot on. I'm a 38C in my normal bra size and this fit my cup size pretty perfect. I'm not giving it a full 5 stars because the rib cage area was alittle loose but If I went down a size but up a cup size I think it would of been too small in the rib cage and too big in the cup size. These things are tricky. Its hard to buy online. But I have to say I love the zipper in front so much morer than the back hook and eye nightmare. It's always trial and error when buying online, no fault of the company just my body type! NcBek from NC

I originally ordered the 36C as that is typically my size. I found this item to run a bit big, so I returned it for a smaller size, a 34C. While it was still a tiny bit too big, I didn't order any smaller out of concern it would be too small. Honey from Oakland/California/USA

I am extremely happy with this purchase. Because I am very tall (6' 1/2") and have a low back on my dress, I tried different bustiers to see which would be best. (See my reviews on Carnival 313 and Va Biens 6363 and 523 as well.) I can wear a 36B or 34C and this 34C is perfect in every way for me. My measurements are above bust 33", bust 36", below bust 30", waist 30" hips 38. Measure carefully and go by their size charts as there is NO room for adjustment on this zipper front closure - but it's sure easy to get on by yourself :). If you are very short, it might be a bit long for you... when I sit in it, there is not a lot more room for the boning. Maybe a couple inches, but I've got a pretty long torso, so do keep in mind this is one of the longer bustiers. Which is great for me, as I do have a bit of a wheat belly to keep in line, and this covers my tummy and soft hip flesh (I'm over 50 so not so firm anymore) very very nicely. I love this garment. I am going to keep it even though I am not certain it will be low enough at the back for my dress but even if not, I'll find other times to wear it. If the back is low enough for my dress and I end up using it for my wedding in July, I'll submit an update for comfort/performance factor for a 12 hour shift. Peg

Great looking garment- definitely reminds me of Like a Virgin era Madonna. Got it to go under my wedding dress and it worked great. However, I wish I had bumped my cup size up. Definitely on the small side of C. Lindsay from Atlanta/GA/USA

Standing up the fit was perfect, but when I sat down it just didn't work out. I'm 5'2" and short waisted so when I sat down it pushed the garment up and bunched.

CarnivalResponse: You should try our Carnival Plunge Lace Longline Bra 213 it is better suited for short waisted women. Bethani from Reading,PA

I am torn on this because I wanted it to fit better than it did. I am normally a 40/42D, so I ordered the biggest size, 40D. It was snug, flattering and I loved the zipper closure. But the cups fit weird. I wasnt exactly spilling over the top but they seemed too shallow. When I tried on the bridesmaid dress it almost looked as if I was fairly flat chested. I think maybe a 42D would have fit well but its not offered. So my quest for the perfect corset continues.

Carnival Response: You should try our style Carnival Full Figure Strapless Longline Underwire Bra 423. It is available in 42D and it is fuller in the cups. Tessa from Forest Lake, MN

I liked this bra and the front zipper close was awesome! The only problem I had is I'm wearing an ivory dress that is fitted and the boning/seaming in the bra showed thru the dress. Ali from Carmel, IN

I loved that I could get into this all by myself! Unfortunately, the size I got was too large for me to be able to keep it. I had ordered 38D and 40C, per the many comments here about sizing. The 40C was WAY too big. The 38D was only slightly too big, but for my wedding day I wanted a perfect fit. Due to the popularity of this item, the next size down was backordered, so I had to choose a different bra in order to get it in time. Mel from MN

Front zip makes it easy to get on. Very slimming. The cups are slightly big, but putting pads in fixes that. Not as pretty as one might hope for wedding-day underwear, but it gets the job done. J from DC area

I bought this exact same one in black (all they had in my size) from another store. My wedding is in two weeks... I loved it, but it was too big around. I ordered a 36D thinking it might be a better fit since it goes all the way down to my hips. Well, I was wrong. I am so glad they had an ivory one to wear under my wedding dress on this site! I can't wait for it to get here. This is the nicest corset I've ever bought. They usually fall down and move around, but the extra support around the top of this particular corset is really awesome! I LOVE it! If you're looking for a corset with maximum support, this is it-especially if you will need to wear it for long periods of time! The front zip is awesome too. And it has about 5 hook inside the zipper, instead of the usual 50! It is so easy to take on and off. I didn't need someone with me to help me hook it up the back or to try to turn it around after hooking it from the front and twisting it... It's really nice. Dee from Central, NY USA

Bought to wear under my wedding dress and is fantastic! It is the lowest back corset I have been able to find, and the front connection makes putting it on so easy. I highly recommend this product. Most corsets tend to run small so I ordered a 40D, but this one ran truer to size for me and I probably should have ordered a 38D (which is my correct bra size). Allison from Tallahassee, FL

I love that this bra's closure is in the front so I can put it on on without assistance! Sizing is a bit off, however. I initially ordered 36C (my normal bra size) and a 38B and had to return them for a 34C, a size I never wear. kristine from brooklyn

It wasn't secure enough against my boobs. It just kind of hung away from my boobs with no support at all. Strange fit up top.

HerRoom Response: It sounds like your band size was too big. Try size 34C. Sara from Grapevine TX

Best longline bra I have tried. Comfortable and easy to put on. The only thing that I would comment about is that the size chart is not quite accurate. I measure at a 38B, but that size was very big; had to go down a size. Would have given it a 5 star except for that fact. kate from San Ramon,CA, USA
