I found the sizing is not accurate. I initially ordered 40C and when it arrived, it was way too small. Then, I requested the next size up, which fit better, but still did not fit quite right. I plan to return them.

Carnival Response: Please see Tomima’s Tip "The design of this bra is pared down in the cups and sides to be invisible under skimpy tops. You may want to go up a cup size if you would like more cup coverage." Additionally, as you can see from the picture the cups on this bra are demi cups with graduated padding and are not meant to accomplish full coverage of the breasts. Beth from Wilmington, DE

The size seems to run a little on the smaller size. I should have gotten a 36C to be comfortable.

Carnival Response: You are correct. You would have been better served going up one cup size. According to Tomima’s Tip, "The design of this bra is pared down in the cups and sides to be invisible under skimpy tops. You may want to go up a cup size if you would like more cup coverage."

I purchased D instead of my regular C and it still did not fit.

Carnival Response: Please see Tomima's Tip, "The design of this bra is pared down in the cups and sides to be invisible under skimpy tops. You may want to go up a cup size if you would like more cup coverage." This bra does have demi cups and are not meant to accomplish full coverage of the breasts. Although, we suggest sizing up one cup, this alone will not accomplish changing the shape of this bra and the look that it will give you. Gail from Westminster, MD

I was really excited to find a large size band that is not a full size fit. The fit works great, but my one problem is the padding is too rigid and does not feel natural. I will keep them because like I said, it is nearly impossible to find a large size band that is not a full size fit.

Carnival Response: We are very happy to hear that you were satisfied with the fit on this bra. The padding is specifically designed to give additional support that is needed in a plunge push-up bra. If the padding were too soft it would not be able to provide enough support without the cups being full coverage. VK from IL

This item was exactly what I was looking for. It is very hard to find a front closure bra in size 32D. Next time I will not stress I will just come here. Thank goodness I found this sight and will recommend it to all my female friends. Thank you for your courteous service. christina from bethune

I am in the process of reconstruction from a double mastectomy. Doctor recommended a wire bra. This style is excellent and very comfortable to wear. If you've had a mastectomy and doctor recommends a wire bra then this is what you want. I've tried many others and they are not comfortable. This one is.

This is the perfect plunge. Fits very comfortably, and is very pretty. Front-closure is easy to operate. Enhances cleavage. I love it. Demi from Columbia, SC

This bra seemed to be padded to a 38D.

Carnival Response: This bra is not considered padded. It is a contour with a graduated pad along the bottom of the cup to enhance cleavage. DEE from Montana

The plunge of this bra was excellent! The cups fit perfectly;however, the thin metal clasps that hold the straps onto the cups are too thin and need to be heavy duty. One of mine bent as I was removing the bra! I might buy future bras, but if all the clasps are this cheaply made, I'll purchase no more. A thick plastic or something would be an improvement over the thin metal.

Carnival Response: A complaint of this nature is highly unusual for any of our bras. The hardware used in this bra is of the highest quality and is the same used by many of the leading manufacturers. It seems to me that the straps were tightened way too much on this bra to cause metal findings to bend. If the finding would have been plastic it probably would have snapped under that kind of pressure. Fran from Kentucky

I purchased this bra in two colours and for some reason the.brown fit but the nude doesn't. Aside from that I'm very happy with it.

Carnival Response: We apologize for this, a review like this is highly unusual. The only explanation is that one of the bras must have been mismarked. Eva from New York

This is by far the most horrible bra I have ever worn. The rubber lining from the bras have made several burn-like cuts on my back! I did not notice how horrible it was until I took the bra off and saw four lines (top and bottom lining) on my back. I thought it was fine until I showed and realized that it was cut! The rubber had rubbed off my skin! Please do not bother telling me that I should have gotten a bigger size because the fit was NOT the problem. Please steer clear of this horrible and damaging bra.

Carnival Response: This bra is not made with any rubber or silicone. Almost always when there is a burn or cut from any bra it is because the bra needs to be washed before wearing. Amelia from Huntington Beach

I have never been so disappointed in a bra before. I had ordered two different bras, same sizes, and one fit perfectly, but this one did not. It felt like the cup size was so much smaller than a "b" cup. It did not cover on the bottom no matter what I did to adjust it. And the straps were uncomfortable too.

This bra was a disappointment. It is not a 36D by any means. It was too small. I could of sworn it was a 34C, which I wore many years ago. I returned it and bought a different bra.

Carnival Response:The design of this bra is paired down in the cups and sides to be invisible under skimpy tops. You may want to go up a cup size if you would like a more cup coverage. Silver from Columbus, GA

I could have found a bra with the same quality at Wal-Mart. The fit is uncomfortable, the cups ride up when all else fits perfect and it looks bad under most shirts. Oh and I almost forgot - the underwire is coming out after just 3 wears. I thought that I was being smart by spending less on a bra, but instead I will be spending a little extra plus the $21 I spent on this.

Carnival Response:Based on your complaint about the fit and the problem with the wire coming out after only three wears you must have chosen the wrong size for this bra. The Tomima Tip has pointed out that this bra is paired down and you should go up a cup size when buying this bra. Since we don’t make this bra in size DD it was probably not the right bra for you to begin with. Sarah from West Haven, CT

I was trying to find my size with front closure and HerRoom came to the rescue. The bra I chose is very comfortable, washes well (in washing machine) and seems to be very durable. I would recommend this bra to anyone. Jo Ann from Bolingbrook, IL/USA

Since I am a new customer and unfamiliar with your products, I think I should have been encouraged to order two or three different sizes; then returning the ones that did not fit. Now I have two bras that are too small and I have to make the effort to send them back while planning to pay for shipping again for the new sizes I will order. Apart from the wrong size, I think the bras are what I expected. Amy from Minnesota

I am returning this bra, as it was tight, uncomfortable and was a small 34C.

Carnival Response: The design of this bra is paired down so that it won't show under summer tops. This is why the sides are more narrow, and the center front is low. Fran from Weston, FL

This bra is great in style and fit! I needed a replacement for a discontinued Wonderbra front-close and this was the only one I could find that had a "classic" back style. The clasp is slightly more ornate and, as a result, a bit more difficult for me to close. I have a handicap that makes it impossible for me to use a back-close bra, so finding a comfortable and easy to put on front-close bra is a must. Many thanks. Judy from Novato, CA, USA

I love the ease of a front close bra. I don't understand why it's so hard to find them, especially without that uncomfortable T Back. This bra is well designed with a regular back, extremely comfortable but way too padded for my taste. Had it been lightly lined only, it would be the perfect bra for me. Dahlia from New York

I love this bra! It has a pretty front closure clasp that's decorated with rhinestones. Front closure bras are hard to find. I know this because I will only wear front close bras. They are more comfortable to wear, back hook closures dig into your spine and show under sweaters. Jean from Arlington, VA

I think I have finally found the perfect bra. Most often I need a racer back bra because the straps always fall off my narrow and thin shoulders. I have tried them all, and if I shorten the straps, so they don't fall off my shoulders, then the bra rides up on my breasts. However, sometimes it isn't possible to wear a racer back bra with scoop neck tops and other cuts. This bra does it all since the straps are convertible. Even worn in the standard style, the straps don't fall off my shoulder. There are also several features that I love about this bra: front closure is so much easier to put on and take off, adjusting the strap length is so much easier and logical from the front, I like the material (it isn't cotton!), and it has padding to avoid the you-know-what look. The price is right too. I have looked a long time for a bra with all of these features and finally found it at HerRoom! They have a great website that actually shows the back of the bra!

This item ran small on me. Did not fit well, very small side panels.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your comments. The design of this bra is paired down so that it won't show under summer tops. This is why the sides are more narrow, and the center front is low. Kay from nj
