I am normally a 34b in bra sizing (and by the website measuring guide as well) and I am a pretty standard size 4 in clothing. When I got the 34b bra, the bust fit, but the waist was HUGE - ruffling, rippling, could have fit another person in with me, huge. And for the record, I do not have a very small waist compared to the rest of me, in fact, I'd say I am pretty square shaped.
I exchanged the bra for a 32b hoping that the 2 inches would do the trick. The bust is now rather tight, but since push up is the goal here, so I can live with that part. And the waist mostly fits- at least it doesn't fold over itself now. I'm not sure it's making my waist any smaller either though, which I presumed was half the point of the long line bra. The padding is rather thick in the front, so I am hoping it doesn't actually add inches to my waist. I have yet to try it on with my wedding dress. I am not really thrilled with the final product, but I don't have time to wait. I would stay away from this product if you are at all petite.
HerRoom Response: Bustiers are always a difficult fit. when you go down a band size, you need to go up a cup size to maintain the same cup volume. You are probably a 32C.
