I bought this to go under my wedding dress, unfortunately I could not wear it because the breast area came up to high. That's ok though because I have worn it with several other shirts and dresses since then...and LOVE it. The cup is too big so when I order it in black I will be going down to a C, hopefully that helps. It does have the "pointy" look which I am really not a fan of but I like the support and how comfortable it is. If I could get this bra with the round/smooth shape I would buy it in every color.

I was highly disappointed in this bra considering all the positive reviews it had. I was planning on using for a wedding I was standing up in. The cups looked like they would be too big, but I can't confirm that. I ordered my usual size and opted to bypass the recommendation for the bra extender since I didn't consider myself having "a tummy". I normally were a size 12/14 jean and either a large or medium shirt, depending on the cut and fabric. Yes, I have some curves, but consider myself a healthy weight and didn't think my slightly cushioned abs wouldn't be considered a "tummy." Apparently I was wrong. I had at least a 2 inch gap between the hooks when I attempted to try it on. I'm not even sure if the extender would have helped. Maybe it was sized wrong, but it's going back.

Goddess Response: We’re so sorry GD0689 didn’t work for you. This style has been in the Goddess family for many years, and the sizing is unique. I do think you would have had better luck if you’d followed the Tomima Tip of going up one - sometimes even two band sizes, and down the corresponding cup size. Our customers find that this usually provides a perfect fit. Jennifer from Fulton, MO

The fit and the support is perfect. My only issue is the item isn't long enough on me. I have a long torso, and my problem area is the pouch I have under my belly button. This item stops right at my belly button, which creates an even worse pouch. I have to wear a waist trainer over this whenever I wear it. Jasmine from Lithonia, GA USA

This product was absolutely amazing!! I followed the advice from other comments and ordered a different size than I normally wear. I usually wear a 46DD and I ordered it in a 48D (add one band size, and decrease one cup size).Fit me like a glove! I have never been able to find a strapless bra that was comfortable enough to wear all day and all night and that actually have me great support! I wasn't sagging or spilling out at all! The only reason for 4 stars is that the cups did give me cone, straight out of the 80s, Madonna shape. It wasn't that big of a deal for me because the dress I was wearing helped to reshape them after I had put the bra on. But if you're planning on wearing a top that is flowy or has a lot of room I can guarantee that you'll end up with cones. I tried leaning over and scooping them into place as directed and it still didn't help with the cone issue. But overall this is a wonderful, amazing bra!!! I would definitely recommend!

I purchased an extender to go along with this and when the bra finally came the extender did not line up with the bra hooks. I got the bra on but for a full figured woman it did nothing it all. It did not have the support I was looking for. I was disappointed.

Goddess Response: Rose, it might be an idea to use more than one extender - lining them up next to each other, to make the band more comfortable. It might be you're not getting the support you need because your cups are too small. GD0689 has cups to a UCS D4, so you have two more cup sizes to try. Please refer to Tomima’s fabulous fit tips to help you find your perfect size. Rose from Oshkosh WI USA

I was so disappointed in this order. I needed a good strapless bra for an upcoming wedding. Now it's here and is nowhere even close to my fit. Another family member also ordered one and the size was equally as far off.

Goddess Response: We're so sorry this style didn't work for you. GD0689 is one of our classic styles, and it has it's own particular fit. We recommend going up in the band (one or two cup sizes, and then down in the cup the corresponding one or two cup sizes). Every brand fits differently, so it's important to be flexible about your size. Sometimes it takes good old fashioned "trial and error" to find the perfect fit in a particular style.

Pretty good corset! Make sure you measure a little above your waist and go exactly by that measurement. I am a 38G or H and I bought 42F. I probably could have gone even a cup size smaller. Also the corset really will hold in your waist, but if you are a plus size gal like me you will need shapewear for your hips for smoothing. The corset was perfect for my strapless gown!

Beautiful but runs too small.

Freya Response: I’m so sorry GD689 didn’t work for you. We recommend going down a band size (sometimes two), and then up the corresponding cup size. Julie from N. Bergen, NJ

I wanted to like it, but I can't. The band definitely runs very small. I wish I had paid attention to reviews about that. any shaping benefit was negated by the bulging over the too-tight edges. The cups were not too big for me, but the shape they gave me was awful. I'm not afraid of a bit of a retro look but this was straight-up grandma torpedo boob. I had to send it back.

Goddess Response: I’m so sorry GD689 didn’t work for you. As you’ve mentioned, we recommend going down a band size (sometimes two), and then up the corresponding cup size. If you’d ordered a band size up, and the band fit you correctly, the cups would also fit differently, and I’m sure you would be happier with the resulting shape. Alternatively, you might want to try Maria (EL8500) our strapless bra in Elomi, our sister company. Maria is a strapless bra, not a bustier. Many customers team this bra with a shaping garment which goes up to the waist for a completely smooth look. You’d wear a 36D3. Erin from NJ, USA

I've tried on a few times but, not worn yet, the fit around the body is great. I now realized a tag later, that my cups are too big. Which, in turn, making my breast area in my clothing look pointy. Toni from Snellville, GA, USA

Cups run very large, order two sizes smaller. Order not your band size but the inches you are above your belly button.

Goddess Response: Your fit tip about the band is a really good one! We recommend going up a band size, (sometimes two band sizes, if you have a very full tummy), and then going down the corresponding cup size. Did you perhaps go up a band size, and not go down a cup? Also it’s so important to remember to “swoop and scoop” your breast tissue from the back to the front in front of the under-wire into the cups. You’ll find you’re taking the breast tissue out of your underarm area, and filling the cups where it belongs. Adjusting your breast tissue in this way will not only make the bra fit properly, it will make it much more comfortable to wear! Kelly from Norwich

Gave my breasts an unnatural looking, pointy shape, so I had to return it even though the rest of it fit perfectly. Seemed to be really good quality and arrived quickly so I would still order from HerRoom again. Jessica from Holland, MI USA

I wanted to love it. I bought it for a wedding I'm standing up in that I need a strapless bra for. I'm only a C cup, sometimes D, but I just hate strapless bras... So I want a sure thing when I have to wear it all day. For one thing, this bra is really hard to get on by yourself. It's got about 8 clips in the back and you can't just turn it around. That was a bummer. But when I finally got it on, my breasts looked so pointy. I couldn't do it; I had to send it back. If you don't mind the shape, than I think this bra would have held up with no problem all day and night! I just prefer to be more rounded.

Goddess Response: Maybe the reason you hate strapless bras is because you haven’t yet found the perfect one for you. Check out FL4530 in our Fantasie brand. The cups are completely smooth, and provide a gorgeous round, lifted silhouette. The band runs a bit snug, so perhaps try a 38B in this style. Elizabeth from Milwaukee, WI

My seamstress suggested I get the Godess bra for under my dress for my daughters wedding. After receiving it, to my dismay I was unable to wear it as when I tried it on at my last dress fitting the bra showed at the cleavage line of my dress. Also I was professionally measures for my bra and I ordered that size and there was excessive fabric in the cups. The little time I had it on it wasn't a smooth feeling.

Goddess Response: “Excessive fabric” in the cups suggests that perhaps you just need to go down in the cup (42C). This would also bring the height of the bra down in the front. We usually recommend going up in the band, and down a cup in this style. If you’re looking for a seam-free, absolutely smooth look in a strapless bra, perhaps try EL1230 in Elomi, our sister brand. I would recommend a 40DD in this style. Jane from Pittsburgh PA USA

I took 1 look @ the Goddess corset and knew I had to have it. I ordered the garment for a beach vacation but it was on back order. By the time it arrived, it didn't fit.(its so beautiful..I'm not missing out on this)customer service was amazingly helpful. Anxiously awaiting.. Kristy from Phoenix, AZ. USA

I searched forever in stores and online for a plus-size strapless longline bra for my bridal gown, and (as with ever hour-long, grueling bra fitting ughh) expected the result to be the wrong fit and prepared myself to return it long before I even received it. And let me tell you...I was WRONG. This bra is EXACTLY what I was desperately searching for!! I wear a 40F in Layne Byant sizes, so I followed the fit tip of ordering down a size in the cups (nervous--my cup usually runneth over) and up a size in the band (and I ain't afraid to eat, let me tell you) and the result is a perfect fit. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because it does give you a little bit of the Marilyn Monroe cone action, but if you are wearing this with something structured like an evening gown or a wedding dress, the shape shouldn't be an issue. My busty bridal dreams are saved!! Twaink from TX

I have never been able to wear a strapless bra since I have extra large bosoms. it is either too small and I have boob muffin top, or fits the boob but no support, and I'm floppin all over the place. I took my measurements and went by HerRoom sizing, that's the best way to go if you're unsure about your size, mine fits PERFECTLY. Full coverage, with support. I actually did 20 jumping jacks and they stayed in... Seriously, not kidding I did. Is it the most comfortable thing in the world. Anything that can hold these big girls in I'll put up with. Overall definite 5 star piece, great quality! Rachel from Chicago, IL

I really wanted to love this bra after reading the reviews. I went up one size with the band and down a cup size as recommended by other reviewers. Perhaps my breasts sit higher on my chest, but I found this bra's cups sat extremely low. The cups themselves were outrageously large completely covering the tops of my breasts down to the bottom of my rib cage. My breasts were barely lifted from where they typically sit without a bra. The lace itself was scratchy as well and I felt would abrade my skin if wearing it for long periods of time. The bra did not provide any lift at all and all the shape came from the molded cups, which were an odd shape due to the stiff lace and boning. The one positive I can say for this bra is that like liked the long line. It was firm without being binding.

Goddess Response: Hi Jacqui. If you love a long line bra, perhaps try our Goddess Keira Longline Soft Cup Bra. You’ll get the light control, and added support of a longline bra, and the comfort of wire-free cups. We use an ultra- supportive satin simplex in the cups, which is oh so comfy! The band runs a bit full, so we recommend going down in the band, and up in the cup. (38DDD). Jacqui from Indiana
