Just too big. The cup size seemed appropriate, but the band was much larger than any other 42 I've had or tried on. Too bad. Crystal from Portland, OR

An excellent bra. The best I've ever owned. Good side support. Strong molded cups. Great adjustable straps that aren't too wide. Washes well. Great with v neck tops. Collie from Washington, DC

Way too formed. Also ran big to size in cups. Was so hoping this would work out well.

Carnival Response: This style is made to give support to fuller figure women. It is made with full coverage generous cups that are made of extra supportive foam. Nana from Mercersburg, PA

First Time odering from herroom.com and I couldn't ask for a better bra. It fit like silk and for me that's not easy. Very comfortable and very affordable. I might to add very supportive. I have big girls to be 6'2 .. Thanks again carnival and herroom.com Cindy from Evanston, IL

This bra has generously sized cups, I could go down a cup size for this bra - other bras that size -not. I like the straps a little closer in, but these are in the usual place. The Band is nice and wide and stays put. Anne from University Place, WA, USA

I bought two Carnival bras at the same time reviewed the other one and Carnival responded that you need to hand wash them so the underwires won't poke through. Well, I do hand wash them and after 5 wearings the underwires poked through the other one, both cups on the same day. It took 7 wearings for the tuxedo underwire to poke through--just one cup this time, but still extremely sharp. This is a shoddily made bra, which Carnival is apparently not going to admit. I have other underwire bras that have never poked through, even after the bra needed to be replaced. I will never buy a Carnival bra again.

Carnival Response: We are very surprised to hear that you did not like the quality of the bra. We at Carnival take great pride in our quality control. This bra is one of our top selling styles and we do reinforce the area where the wires are poking out but it is possible that a few still poked out even after being reinforced. This could happen with any bra. Ceallaigh from Chicago, IL

This is a beautiful looking bra. However, it is poorly made. This is the second bra that I received after returning the first one. The problem is the sharp underwire comes through the fabric and impales my skin. A simple solution would be to place something on the edges of each underwire to prevent it puncturing the fabric. I decided given the cost of the bra, and to return it that it would be more cost effective to invest more money into purchasing a better quality bra.

Carnival Response: We are sorry to hear you were not pleased with your purchase. We do reinforce the area where the wires are poking out but it is possible that a few still poked out even after being reinforced. This could happen with any bra. Vanessa from Somerville, Massachusetts

Not impressed with this bra. My boobs are real and have been growing out of control during my pregnancy. I was a 34DD pre-pregnancy and am having a hard time finding bras to fit me without having to spend a ton of money. I'm only 4'11" and the straps don't hold the girls up so then the straps rub in two different places making the bra very uncomfortable to wear. This bra might work fine for women with implants or smaller breast size. It just didn't work for me.

Carnival Response: A properly fit bra will give support without straps. Straps are not meant to hold up your breasts. They should only be used for added support. It seems that you were not properly sized after your pregnancy, I assume you are probably buying the wrong bra size. Lindsay from MN USA

Good fit and I love the bone in the sides and the width of the size Andrea from Clifton, virginia

I wish the cups were positioned slightly more towards the center, but in general, this is a great bra for women with large breasts who don't want to have to strap themselves down or succumb to granny-style bras. Very attractive and supportive. Only other downside: the bra is generally not very flexible, which is great for keeping the girls in the right place all day, but it begins to feel constricting after several hours of wear. Nevertheless: highly recommended if you need lots of support but still want style. Claire from Ann Arbor, MI

This is a nice bra, but I will be returning. It has no support. The straps are too long and do not allow for as much adjustability as I need to give me lift and support.

Carnival Response: Since this bra is a full figure bra the cups run very large. Our suggestion to you would be to try a 34DD. ItFits from Derry, NH

This is a nice, bra but I will be returning it. The straps are too long and there is not enough room to allow for the straps to be adjusted to provide for lift and support. Unfortunately, that is a problem with some bras. ItFits from Derry, NH

This is the best bra ever! The molded cups are good support and they hold everything in just the right place. The plunge front is just high enough to hold everything in place and low enough for great, rounded cleavage...no "butt crack cleavage" here! I bought this in every color...it's perfect!

I think that the Carnival Molded Tuxedo Bra is a great bra, so long as you do not have that nagging problem of straps falling down from your shoulders. This bra has a timeless, classical look, because of the satin atop the cups. It has well made cushioned cups that are VERY comfortable. But for me, straps fall off my shoulders. They have, for at least 30 years of my life. I may have a small shoulder width in relation to the rest of my body--that might be the cause. It is said these days that when the straps are closer to the end of your shoulder, nearer to the arm, that the straps will not fall down. I do not quite believe that. At least, for THIS bra, the straps fell off of my shoulders immediately and did so for the irritable hour I spent testing it to be sure. Perhaps a different model would work better on me. This is, however, a very nicely made and high quality bra. It has clean and neat lines. I think it would look good under a T-shirt too. Kiki from Chicago, IL USA

This bra didn't quite live up to my expectations. The shoulder straps are too long for me and I tend to pop out of it if I don't pay attention and stand up straight. Other than that, it is very comfortable and a great t-shirt bra. Just be careful not to bend over. Becca from San Antonio, TX

I think the bra is ok. I would definitely love it if it fit better. Its really rough on my skin, leaving dry patches that make me itch all day. The straps need a bit more room to adjust. And worst of all by the second day the under wire has popped out the sides and constantly stabs my armpits. Don't know if it was made in a rush and not made or inspected properly. So now I'm stuck with two bras that hurt, and irritate my skin.

Carnival Response:Irritation to the skin and wires popping out are both a result of wearing the incorrect size in a bra. nica from el paso/tx/usa

Great bra for full-figured women especially because of the broader length sides and the boning in the sides. Also, the deep plunge front is exactly how I like my bras rather than the higher cut fronts. andrea from clifton, virginia
