It's been a long time since I ordered a bra on line because of disappointments in the past. This time it was a success, the size, fit and quality is great! Love it! Lisa from Salt Lake City

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).

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

I really liked the lace and prettiness of the bra,however I didn't really like the way the cups fit, and looked under my clothes. Sharon from Riverside,Ca.

I purchased this bra at one of my local department stores in my correct size. When I ordered the same bra from Her Room it was at least 2 sizes too small. I think this bras are irregulars that Carnival pawns off to on line stores or discount stores to get rid of them. Be very careful when ordering this bra. I will be sending the DD back because the fit is also very uncomfortable.

HerRoom Response: We respectfully disagree with your statement. All items on our site are new and from regular production.

Carnival Response: We do not ship irregular bras to HerRoom. We don’t ship them to other retailers either unless they are marked clearly as irregular. We have many outlets to buy the few irregulars that are produced and have no problem disposing of them in a proper manner. Christina from La Quinta, CA

Runs small so too tight and not enough support.

I am glad that I read the reviews about this bra before I bought it because the cup size does run small. I usually wear a C cup and I bought this one with a D cup. The bra is pretty with the lace, but you cannot see it as much as in the photo of the white one. The black one doesn't really show skin through it. It fits well and is comfortable.

Band size was fine, but the cup size was at least a size too small. I wear the same size in most brands, but this didn't fit at all.

Carnival response: The cups run one size small on this style. Please go up one cup size that what you would normally wear. Laura

I bought this bra because it looked like the back straps were closer together than other bras, but it still falls off my shoulders. I'd love to find bras for short fat people, not all have wide shoulders and not all are tall from bra wire to armpit, all wire bras dig into my armpit when I sit down. I'm waiting for the other bra I ordered to see how that one fits, if it's not good like this one I'll send both of them back.

Carnival Response: You should try one of the soft cups, without underwire. Style 620, 627, 630, 645, 660, any of these should be good. Sandy from San Francisco, California
