The longline bra fit well in the cups for me. I took other reviewer's advice and went down a size as I am a D-DD depending on the brand. However, my rib cage varies between 32 and 34, and it appears that 32 was the wrong call for this item. I could get the bra on with help, but it was just too snug for my purposes. After all, I determined that I did not need it for the dress I was making, so I chose not to order the next size, but will be returning for future shopping. Megan from Washington, USA

At the last dress fitting for my wedding, we suddenly realized that the seamstress had taken too much off the hem and now the strapless dress was too low for me to feel comfortable in without feeling like I was going to fall out.. if you know what I mean. We searched everywhere for a low backed bra but I also hate strapless bras because they slide down all the time and i didn't want to have to hiking it back up so we looked for a corsett styled support. It was impossible to find. Til we found this in a boutique. She was out of the ivory so I looked online for it. I bought it from here because it was the same price as the store and without shipping, was the perfect choice. I am a 34c so i purchased a 32c and it fit beautifully. It stayed up all day and night (even dancing, and my husband dipped me repeatedly in our first dance) and I never felt uncomfortable or at risk of revealing too much. I highly recommend trying it on in a store before purchasing, but that it is high quality and worth purchasing. Amanda from Fairfield, CA

This fits me incredibly well. In fact, it's one of the best fitting bras I have ever owned. The problem is that the boning shows through my wedding dress so I cannot wear it. It saddens me that it shows through when it has the word "invisible" in the name. My dress has a fairly thick fabric, so I am surprised that is shows through. Hopefully I can use it for some other outfit!

Carnival Response:We are very happy to hear that you were satisfied with the fit of this garment. However, we are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied. The combination of the outer shell fabric on this corset and the fabric on your dress should completely cover the boning. In the rare case that it does not accomplish complete invisibility, you might want to try a combination of Carnival Invisible Strapless Bra 126 with a high waist control brief. Emma from Maine

Very good line. Wearable with more clothes than the evening gown I ordered it for. Well made, good fit. Clementina from New York, NY

As almost everyone else has commented, this bra was not true to size. I normally wear 32DDD, and in this bra would have needed a 30 or maybe even a 28. The bra was attractive, very smooth, and comfortable. It was the only bustier out of three that I ordered that didn't show under my satin wedding gown. It was also the best made out of the three Carnival bras I ordered. It was also the only one with smooth cups that didn't create a duck boob effect. It has even, smooth, and very light padding across the cups. I haven't tried it on in the correct size yet, but I suspect that I will also need to go down one cup size more than usual, not just band size.

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

The construction was good overall, but I felt that my breasts looked even larger when wearing this bra. I had hoped for a fit that kept my breasts closer to my chest, but the bra maximized my shape. I had to return it.

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. Guest from Washington, DC

This garment is pretty true to size; however, it didn't cinch nearly enough for me, if at all. I exchanged it for the next band size down.

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. Nisha from Huntsville, AL, USA

The bra was the worst thing I ever bought, I hope I get my money back, there was no support at all it was a wast of my time.

Carnival Response: 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. carolyn from deltona fl

This torsolette was pretty and comfortable, but was a little too long in the torso for my petite, short-waisted frame. Moreover, it didn't offer as much support for my large bust as I was hoping. I returned it since it didn't work for me.

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. Emily from USA

It just did not fit around the waist/chest. I do not know if it was mis-sized or the sizing is off. I have experienced size problems with many garments on line. It is the biggest issue of ordering on line. There just does seem to be uniformity in sizing. On line shopping offers a consumer a large choice. However, the added cost of shipping back an item that does not fit is reducing the benefit. Bonnie from DE

Cups where much to big. Top edge of bra was buckled and stuck out inches from chest. Body was not tight enough. Can't possibly wear this and will be returning it.

Carnival Response: 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." Linda from RI

I purchased this bra to wear with my wedding dress. The general fit was good and true to size, but it was too long for me being 5'3 and I could not sit comfortably. I had to return the bra. Anonymous from Maryland

Absolutely no support. The boning was extremely flimsy, and buckled under the weight of my breasts. The cups were pushed away from my body and laid almost completely horizontally. This is NOT a good fit for larger breasted women.

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. Kat from Brooklyn, NY, USA

I bought this bustier to wear under my wedding dress for my wedding next summer. It is the best fitting bustier I have tried on! I wear a 32DDD - the cup size is perfect and the amount of boning fully supports my chest. Even though I ordered a 32, I found the size around to still be a bit big. I will have to take it in about an inch. Overall, great quality and fit! C from IN/USA

A very comfortable bra but one that puts a few pounds on since it's padded all around the torso (and cups). Jane from New York City

The item did not provide the support I was looking for. I accidentally ripped the tags from the garment while trying it on. Unfortunately I am now unable to return or exchange the item and am unable to use it as well. If I were given the option to return it I would go up one cup size. Liz from VA

For me, a 40DDD did not fit well. Under my breasts there was a lot of bunching. Perhaps it is best for smaller breast sizes. Other than that, it was comfortable. There was no poking, pinching or sliding. Ruth from Yeadon

Terrific! Comfortable and incredibly flattering. Bought it to wear under a bridesmaids dress with a low back but so glad I did for wearing with other things. My only criticism is that the cups do look a little strange when you put it on. However, they seem to be fine underneath clothing. I am typically a 36D and after I read the reviews I purchased a 36C and it fit perfectly. Sophia from Ogden Dunes, Indiana

I bought this bra for my teenage daughter. We always have had a problem with other stores, but HerRoom was wonderful! The bra was received quickly and in perfect condition. More importantly IT FITS!!! Thank you so much and we will be back! Heidi from Raleigh, NC

The fabric is soft and it seemed relatively comfortable, but the cups just didn't offer enough support for someone with a larger bust. I felt like it should have been more stiff or supportive or something. I think the band size also runs a bit large compared to some. I'm usually between a C and D in cup size and the C fit fine.

Carnival Response: 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. Danielle from U.S.

True fit and very nice, soft fabric. I ended up returning this item only because one I had my wedding dress fitting, the seamstress opted for me to go without a bra, due to the corsette style of my dress. The boning in this item is great, not too rigid or hard to sit down with and if I had needed to keep it, I would have been very happy with the fit and look! Emily from Crystal Lake, IL USA

I bought this to "smooth" under a silver satin bridesmaids dress. These run BIG. I usually wear a 38B bra. I had to go with a 36A, and hook it on the innermost hooks. Good support, didn't feel like I had to pull at it/adjust it all day. Rebecca from Wilmington, DE

Great support; comes with option of removable convertible straps and removable garter clips. Boning may be a bit bulky or visible in thinner and tighter wedding or other gowns, but this is still me favorite of the other choices i tried. Dina from Columbus, OH

Love It!! I bought this item to wear under my strapless wedding gown. It is so soft and lightweight! Proves that definition and support do not require discomfort to accomplish. Unlike others that I tried, this bra disappeared under my dress and will not become an "unwelcome guest" at the wedding --ever present and in my thoughts. It is so comfortable, I can forget that I am wearing it! Blushing Bride from Columbia MD

I got this for my wedding dress. I am a full C cup but ordered small to be sure. The cups were very large and even though I am a C wearing a B....it was still way too big. I returned it. April from VA

This bra fit quite well. The extra boning all around gave good support without being too stiff. The boning is also subtle enough that it doesn't show through my dress. Sarah

When I received the bra, the cups were a bit deformed, like a padded bra after you wash it several times. I think this fit a bit bigger than the actual size and the cups barely did anything. It's hard to find a good bra when you're an odd size. I did not think this bra would be smooth under my wedding dress, so I've returned in exchange for something else. Mary Lou from Stow, OH USA

Fits well . . . very soft/smooth. Did not care for the boning, which shows through and creates odd lines. A little loose in my opinion for a 38. Cups are not very supportive for heavy breasts. Meg from PA
