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
