Carnival Response: Since you are petite I would suggest you go down a cup size to 32DD.

Carnival Response: Unfortunately the only type of bra to do what you are describing is a minimizer bra. Try our Carnival Two Part Lace Underwire Minimizer Bra 509 for the results you desire.

Carnival Response: Every woman has a unique shape. Every bra style fits differently (even different styles from the same manufacturer fit differently). This uniqueness is even more pronounced when it comes to wearing a torsolette since they not only have to fit the breasts and upper back of a woman, but they deal with the stomach, waist, and lower back as well. One band size smaller should do the trick especially since you have two columns of hook and eye closures to adjust to your preference.

It is impossible that a bra of this construction could have "no support at all". This bra is constructed with boning across the whole width of the body, a back closure all the way up to the armpits, and full coverage cups. The only way that a bra of this construction would not give you the desired support would be if you were wearing either a cup or band size that was too big. Based on your comment you should have either gone down a cup size or a band size. Unfortunately since you were not detailed in where you felt the lack of support I cannot advise you as to which of the two options would have been better for your problem.

Carnival Response:The reason that you did not get the desired support was because this bra is not made for your body type. This style is not made for petite figures. It is a full figure bra.

Please see Tomima's Tip:
"This bra is designed for a full figure. If you are average bra sized, go down one cup size: e.g. 36D to a 36C."

Carnival Response: 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.

We have recently discussed this with Tomima, and she has now put a sizing tip on this style. -This bra is a full figure cut and the average figure women should buy one cup smaller.
I have to believe that this woman is wearing the wrong size in this bra.
