I was very disappointed with this bra. The sides of the bra rolled almost as soon as I put it on, which is a problem I have always had. I won't be buying another one.

HerRoom Response: Typically, when a band is rolling, this is a sure sign that you need to go up a band size or two.

Carnival Response: I haven’t heard of this happening. It seem you have had this problem before. This leads me to believe that it is not a problem with our bra but you maybe be wearing the wrong size. YDD from IN

This is my second favorite bra that I purchased out of six. It looks great on and it lifts and separates for nice cleavage. The only thing I see that someone else might not like is where the lace cup is it feels more like a demi cup. I don't mind that. Overall fit is comfy. Brenda from Elkland, Pa

The Bra's didn't fit properly. I tried two different sizes and neither worked. Jonna from Nashville, TN

This Carnival bra in a 38B was a great choice. It fit perfect and is very supportive, I would like to see more of these bras. Others should try these bras, they feel good and are comforting. m from fort worth texas 76131

Breast reduction at 30 yrs old. 1) Wide in the chest 42, small cup B, 2)at 59 my breasts are going south, 3) back fat, 4)shoulder straps slip off. SOLUTION; THIS BRA!. It's big enough in the band, the B cups offers support and fits properly, Smooths back fat, due to the cut of the shoulder straps they stay on my shoulders. More women that ever before are getting breast reductions, so please keep making these larger band smaller cup bras! THANK YOU! P.S. Older women who've had breast reductions could use a little padding to give saggy breast tissue a little more humph in the bra. Jacqueline from Centreville, VA USA

This is probably the best fitting bra I have ever bought. I love the bra and would advise anyone to buy it, that's for sure. Plus I like the service and the consideration of the staff. Lois from Merrillville, In. 46410

This is pretty and so soft; the cups are fully cut. Straps widely spaced. A great every-day bra. Auntie M from Scranton, NC

Finally a pretty bra in a larger size that doesn't show with lower cut tops! After the second wearing I have to use the last hooks and it still rides up the back a little. I wish I had followed the others advice and ordered one size smaller. However, I still love this bra. Sam from Naples

Carnival Response: Dear Customers: Andra Group asked us to address why we offer B cups in this minimizer bra. There are a few important points that must be understood regarding B cups and minimizers.

The first point that is important to understand is that there is a difference between a B cup and a full figure B cup. Two women can be the same size but one could need a full figure cut bra versus a missy cut bra. This rule applies to B cups as well.

As far as the advantages of a minimizer for a B cup there are a few but the main one is support. Minimizers historically are known for giving women extra support (even B cups) because they are designed to press down on the breasts and distribute the extra flesh to the sides.

Another advantage to minimizers is to help a woman fit into a top or top of a dress that is cut flatter than her natural shape. This applies to B cups as well. We hope this explains why we have B cup sizing in this minimizer. Carnival from Linden, New Jersey

I like the bra very much, but would like it even better with a smooth fabric where the lace is inserted. I find that many lace bras create an uneven texture under lightweight clothing. This bra is so comfortable and such a great fit, however, that I will wear it under sweaters and heavier fabrics very happily! I will explore other Carnival styles based on the good fit. The delivery was timely and I was impressed with the packaging and "return" paperwork, should I require it. Nice doing business with you! Susan from New York

LOVE THIS BRA, OMG I LOOK SO SMALL. THE BAND IS A BIT BIG BUT IT WAS PROBABLY MY MISTAKE I SHOULD HAVE GOT THE 32B. amanda from spencer, ny usa

For a 34B, at least, this is not a minimizer bra (and I'm beginning to think that a minimizer doesn't exist for 34B; I suppose I'm the only nut who occasionally wants to feel very small). I can't see how the construction lends itself to minimizing, even for larger cup sizes. Also, the seam dividing the lace and satin sections of the bra shows through tissue t-shirts. Otherwise it was reasonably comfortable, but I sent it back.

HerRoom Response: Almost all minimizing bras start at a C cup. A minimizer reduces the projection of your breasts by moving breast tissue more under your arms and up your chest. With a B cup, this would not be very noticeable. Elizabeth from Chicago
