Straps were not sturdy enough to hold up breast weight and the cups felt too small for full coverage.

Carnival Response: I’m sorry that you were not satisfied. We've had over 60 reviews on this bra and almost all were either 4 or 5 stars, particularly DD cup customers of this bra complementing the support and fit. It is the second best selling Carnival bra on this site. Sheila from Lincoln, CA

Pretty bra. However prior reviewers said it ran small so I ordered a cup size larger . . . and it is a little big. I think it more accurately runs HALF a cup size small. Austin woman from Austin

I now have this bra in white and black, and it is one of the best bras I've ever purchased. People say the cups run small, but for me, they're perfect. It maximizes everything I've got and keeps it there! It's also a beautiful garment. Stev from NJ

It just didn't fit my body very well. Sides were too tall which made an uncomfortable fit in the underarm area. It sure was pretty, though!

Carnival Response: You are correct. This bra has extra side support. The purpose of this extra support is to give more uplift and help keep breast tissue centered, without spill-over. Christine from Gainesville, Fl. USA

I love my new bras they fit comfortable and look nice and that is a combination that is hard to fine. You are right to suggest that you check the sizing chart before buying; which I didn't do with my first order and had to send them back. thank you! and I will be ordering my bras from you in the future.

Ordered size up as recommended but still too small. Perhaps if I got a good fit I would like it.

Carnival Response: I would suggest getting sized by a professional. Yours is the first complaint we’ve received about this garment not fitting since we posted instructions to size up one cup on Tomima’s tips. Dorothy from Farmingville/NY/USA

Sexy retro with lots of support. Material is not soft. I normally wear 36B, but followed the advice here and bought a C which fits well. Élise from Chicago, IL

I too order up because of the other customer comments, but it wasn't really necessary. Surprisingly this bra fit a bit loose but was still very supportive. I'm glad I order up tho as I'm not that crazy about lace and I think it would have been scratchy had it been looser. As is, I like it. It's comfortable and looks great, while still doing the job.

Had to return this one, too. Carnival makes some of loveliest bras I've ever seen. I am between sizes-so that's why they had to go back. I will recommend this brand to sisters and friends. The quality is fantastic and they are beautiful. Carnival-would you consider designing some with spandex cups-for those of us that are smaller?

Carnival Response: Thank you for the kind words! I will pass your suggestions on to our design department. If you are interested in a sports bras we will be introducing a line of sport bras that are made with both Lycra and Coolmax fabric cups in the immediate future. They will be available at HerRoom soon. skyvixen from Smyrna,TN

It is very pretty, true to size, so I should have gotten a C instead of a B size cup it's a little snug on boobs. Ann from Los Angeles, CA

This is certainly a very pretty and well made bra. I ordered this bra one cup size up and I'm glad I did. I normally wear a 42C and this fit - barely. The band size is spot on, but as said, the cups run small. Too pretty to cover up! Very happy with this bra. Jamie from Racine WI

I received this bra and tried it on and found it to fit perfectly. The lace is very feminine and style is very flattering. But you need to know it is a minimizer bra, which is what I wanted and knew this when I made the purchase. I love the support that the 3 hooks provide and the wider than little girl straps. It is a lovely girlie bra. Matter of fact, I just ordered 2 more. And the price of this is unbelievable for the quality of this bra. For me, this was a wonderful purchase. Bobbi from Milpitas, Ca

Nice bra but cups were too small.Sent it back for a larger size (40DD).

carnival Response: Thank you for your comment. The cups on this style run one size small. This information has been noted in “Tomima’s Tips” since the bra has been on this site (Over two years)and has been very helpful to the many customers that have bought this bra and enjoyed wearing it in the correct size.

Okay, but not a great fit; doesn't give enough coverage for my size, shape breasts

Carnival Response: Thank you for your feedback. It seems that you do not know your correct size. I noticed that you bought style# 509 in a different size and you weren’t happy with that bra either. Also please note Tomima’s Tip where she says “The cups are running one cup size too small. Size up one cup size in this Carnival style." I think that will help. penny from berger

The overall structure of the bra is comfortable, but the top of the cup looks more substantial in the picture than it is. It feels more like a push-up bra. The wide band around the girth keeps it in place well, but the sizing is just a bit off. It is a "loose" 34. Given the sturdiness of the design and materials of the bra itself, the elastic shoulder straps are also a bit too stretchy and are set a little too close to the outside if you are very heavy. It's a good bra--just not a great one. But the price is very reasonable for the quality.

Carnival Response: This bra may have the feel of a push up since the outside edge of the cup has extra support to keep your breasts closer to center but the effect is not that of a push up. We used elastic for almost the whole length of the strap since they are adjustable to 50% of their original length. Maggie from Buffalo, WY USA

I bought 5 of these bras & am extremely happy with the look and the comfort. The bra is slightly demi-ish and I originally thought (from the picture) it would be more full coverage, but it's definitely a keeper. Chris from Harriman, NY, USA

Excellent Product. I notice you call this product "full figure bra". I am not full figured in the usual sense. I work out a lot and have wide shoulders from exercise and swimming. Unfortunately, the retail industry specializing in undergarments have yet to recognize the "wide upper body" phenomenon in physically fit women. Their loss. There is a large market out there .

Good fitting bra. It's wonderful to find a bra in this size that does not have an "industrial strength" look, but a feminine look. I'm old, but still like "girlie" things. The reviews of all the items on this website are also a huge plus for this company and the customer. The only thing lacking is free returns. I'll certainly purchase more items in the future from this company. Pat from North Carolina
