The band runs very small on this bra. (I ordered a 34A). I compared it to the band on the cotton padded Timpa demi in the same band size, and this one was at least an inch smaller. That plus the narrow band means that it was cutting under the arms and creating back fat pooches. I am going to exchange it for a 36A. I am really hoping that the cups on that larger size will still fit, because it seems as though it would be an extremely comfortable bra to wear on warmer days. Miranda from San Diego, CA

This is a pretty bra, but the underwire didn't work for me. I am usually a 34AA. A size small works best for me versus a sized bra. I would try this in a 36A. Perhaps the underwires would hit me better than they did in the 34A. This is a nice bra and it's great to find a pretty one so I will try again. patio from Hopkinton, MA

My favorite bra ever! Pretty, soft, just the right support and I can wear it all day. I did not know that I could ever like underwires, but everything I have bought from Timpa is just right for me, and I am very grateful that I look like a grown-up, not a 15 year old. Annie from Connecticut

When I am thin (-25 lbs) and pretty flat, this would be perfect, but at the moment I am not so I returned it. The material is very soft and the look very attractive for an A-size. Jackie from NJ

As mentioned by many others, order one band size up. It's a very pretty bra, but has no support at all. I'll keep it, but I probably won't be ordering another. The search for a pretty and supportive 34A continues. Meghan from Illinois

This bra was painful to wear for even five minutes. I initially went a size up according to the advice here, then returned it for my regular size which technically fit. However, the under wire dug into my chest and no amount of adjusting made it comfortable. I was excited for a more mature looking bra for my small size, but this wasn't the right one for me. If you're very thin, this may not be the best bra for you. I'll be looking for something without under wire in the future.

Timpa Response: Timpa has never had a complaint about the under wire in the Timpa Duet bra before, or any other bra as a matter of fact. The only thing that we can advise is that perhaps your band was too tight and instead of going up on the cup size you should have gone up in a band, that is why the under wire usually digs in, in any bra because the circumference of the band. You might try a 36B or A and see if that works better for you. Julia from New York City

This is amazing! I usually have to settle for bras that are not quite small enough for me (and cover up everything), but this one makes me look like I'm bursting out of it. Now that I've found a bra this sexy, I have zero reasons not to love being small! The wire is even comfortable, but my usual band size is a little tight and I am going to try a 36. Hannah from PA

I LOVE this bra. It's sexy AND comfortable. It's so hard to find that combo when you are a 36A - especially in a bra that doesn't try to make me look bigger than I am. I'm planning to order more in other colors. Thanks, Herroom! Elizabeth from Michigan

I ordered my regular size, 32B, because I like bras to fit really tight in the band (otherwise they shift around too much). It is a perfect fit! Sexy and flattering... looks better on me than most push-up bras. I don't need much push-up anyway -- but I like some contouring, and this bra does the job beautifully. Jessica from Somerville MA

The item was to small. I sent it back for an exchange, I have yet to receive the replacement. Waiting patiently. From what I saw though I did like it, but it didn't fit. Nancy from MA

LOOOVE IT! Finally a 38A that looks sexy and offers nice comfortable support. I modeled it for my hubby the other night and got his thumbs up too. Highly recommend this bra! Kate from Eau Claire, WI

I usually wear a 34AA but followed the general consensus here and went up a band size, ordering the 36A. Going up a band size was definitely the right move, as I found the 36 to be quite comfortable around. However, the cups were just a bit too big for my chest. I don't know if I got an oddball item, or if this is how the bra is supposed to fit and I'm just too small; but the top of the cups puckered open. I know when you go up a band size, you go down a cup size to stay at the same "volume" (e.g., 34AA cup = 36AAA cup). So apparently an AAA isn't enough boobage to totally fill out the A-cup in this bra. :( I'd probably fit great into a 34A in this bra, but it would likely be too tight around. I'm really sad that it didn't fit me perfectly, as it has seemed to fit almost everyone else. It's so pretty and comfortable that I haven't decided yet whether I'm going to return it or try to make minor alterations to improve the fit. Five stars for the bra itself, minus one for not fitting. I did want to note that I had to extend the shoulder straps to their full length to get the best fit/comfort -- and I'm 5'4" with an average torso. One nice feature of the straps is that the little adjustor is in the front instead of the back, which you can see in the photo. I wish more bras had that feature! small and awesome from North Carolina

I immediately got online and purchased this bra after reading about it in the NY Times, 9/2/10 edition. I'm very small 'up there' and wanted a bra that wasn't a push up. Why do bra manufacturers always assume that small breasts need to be artificially made to look large? I like what I look like and only wanted to have a little support. I really hoped this would be the bra that worked. but it wasn't at all. First, it is extremely demi, such that it is cut really low in the front. I could have gotten past that if it fit well, but it did not. It was too tight across the 36 part, too nothing on the "a" part. I'm returning it, disappointed and still looking for that magic bra that works.

Timpa Response: Absolutely, per the comments it seems to me you need size 38B bra. Usually clients think the 36A would fit but in the Timpa you would be a 38B as the sizes run small on purpose, as it is a petite line. I hope you will try the 38B. tricia from cazenovia, ny

This was just what I'd hoped from the description and picture. It is a barely-there bra that makes a small chest look beautiful! Tammy from Oklahoma

This fits my very small bust, and I think it would fit a large range of sizes because the cups are so stretchy. The underwire aspect of it seems completely superfluous, although reasonably comfortable as underwires go. Lisa from CO

The band size was way to tight. I am usually 38 but this was painfully tight. The cups are also a bit odd. While I did order up a cup size since it's a small bra type (and it is very small), I somewhat fit in lower part of the cup, but the upper portion I didn't fill out so it gaped a bit. It is very see through and doesn't cover much - so be aware.

Timpa Response:I would suggest that you probably need to go to a 40A in the duet lace. Unfortunately Timpa doesn’t make it in that size. The fit on the cotton demi would be much better for you since its is more stretchy - Timpa style 00001 . I would suggest to order a 38A, as it should fit you perfectly. Kim from LA, CA

I love this bra! Its extremely comfortable and very feminine looking. Since it's lacy, I expected it to show underneath my white t-shirts, but I was wrong. It makes for a great t-shirt bra. If you're looking for tons of support, this bra is probably not for you. It also runs a little small... I normally wear a 32D, but a 34C fit perfectly. Magic Girl from chicago, il

This bra is great! I was very happy to find that it fit great and it offers just enough support without any padding. I am considering buying another. Thanks for having it available at this site. Lorie from Willowick/OH/USA

Absolutely love this bra; but it does fit small so I returned it for a 38A and unfortunately, the underwire is still digging into my outer breast. I will have to return it, but wish it fit; so pretty - you just don't find a bra like this very often. Material is soft, color great - oh well :( Nancy from OKC OK USA
