It's a really pretty bra, but it runs very small. Even the largest size binds on me, but since I'd already sent back the previous one, I just kept this one. I plan on getting a bra extender to make it a little looser, but the straps will be too far out on my shoulders then. You can't have a tailor move the straps because the elastic is all one piece running across the back and up. Normally that would be good workmanship, but I just wish they made them in a real 36 or 38. The 38 is really a 34 and the C is really a small B.

Timpa Response: We all agree that Timpa in general is a petite sized brand, but we still feel that the item is true to size. Rebecca from Chicago, IL, USA

I like this bra. I usually wear a 30C, but decided to give this one a try based on the fitter's comments and reviews saying it runs small. It fits me pretty well and is very comfortable. I definitely agree that it's on the small side, and VERY low cut. My only complaint is that when I move around a lot my nipples come out a little over the top of the cups, but not enough to feel like I'm completely popping out of the bra. If you're looking for a modest bra with more coverage, this is probably not the bra for you. Otherwise I totally recommend it - great for us small ladies!! Allison from Brookly, NY

I wear a 38B, which is a really hard to find size, so when I find one I am really excited. I was especially excited to find this bra, one that was rated well and did not have a huge amount of fake padding. My girls are big enough as they are! Unfortunately, 38 is the largest size Timpa makes, but it fit like a 34. So, sadly, no awesome bra for me. Timpa needs to make larger sizes and label them accurately.

Timpa Response: Tima is a petite fit, so perhaps a 38 C would work for you? Rebecca

The bra is comfortable and beautiful but it is definitely cut small as many other reviewers mentioned. I am normally a 34B and I thought I would be okay just going up a cup size (to a 34C) but unfortunately I had to exchange the bra for a 36C (which is just funny). Otherwise I love it!

The band size definitely runs small - I had to exchange a 34 for a 36, and it is barely large enough. I'm a small A cup so the cup size works for me. I like the look and the minimal styling, however the band is itchy, especially in the hook area in the back. Kim from Houston, Texas

It's comfy and makes my (small) boobs look great. It's showing a little wear after having it for about a month, but I wear it often. Sara from Portland OR USA

I've left a glowing review about this bra before, but after owning the bra for a little longer I've discovered a few problems. First, I would be hesitant about wearing the bra under a single layer of clothing. The delicate lace cup material does little to prevent your nipples from "showing" at times and I don't consider my nipples to be larger than normal. I solved this problem by taping them down whenever I wanted to wear only a shirt. Second, the straps become loose over time. At the end of some days, I've had to readjust them. I'm sure this can be easily fixed with some tape. In addition, I mentioned that I took reader's advice and went a bra size up to 34 (I'm 100 LB). I would go with 32 next time because I found that the bra stretches easily and now I feel more comfortable on the last hook of the 34. This is still the best fitting bra I've owned so far. Although the problems are fixable, they are still there. Maureen from Boston

This is just the bra I've been looking for, great fit, no riding up and straps stay in place! I love the sexiness of the lace! Briana from Charleston, SC USA

I bought two 34A in the white. I wasn't sure about my bra size but I took a guess (I'm about 100 LB) and some reviewers' advice about going a band size up. When I opened the package, which came beautifully wrapped, I was surprised to see that the cup material was made of delicate lace and see-through. I tried the bra on and luckily it was the correct size for me! In the past, I've purchased 32AA bras that left gaps in the cup and I had to deal with falling straps and the bra riding up every time I lift my arms a little, even on the last hook. This bra has 3 hooks and it fits great on the first hook, as it should be. Plus, I really appreciate that the straps are adjustable from the front. The underbra wire lifts your breast and gives them a nice round shape. This bra definitely makes being small-breasted more tolerable and I will be throwing out the lumpy bras I've had that never fit me this well. I will be sure to take good care of this one! However, I will be exchanging one of the bras in return for one that's slightly more padded. I'm happy to find a bra that finally fits and I look forward to trying out other bras from Timpa!

Awesome, comfy, cute! The "lace" can be a little scratchy at times, otherwise this would have gotten full stars. Doesn't even look like u are wearing a bra, but give great lift! Yessssssss.....i will be buying more Sky from California

Was surprisingly tight for a size 38. Had to return. Too bad, would have been perfect had it been sized correctly. Fit like a tight 36.

Timpa Response: Yes, this Timpa bra runs petite. I would suggest a 38b. Blythe from Santa Monica, CA, USA

favorite bra. buying one in almost every color. (two for the necessities: black/nude) i am a 34A, probably between an A and an AA. it lifts (underwire) and gives them a rounder shape (with no padding!) helps me love myself. Stacey

Excellent fit and feel . The band sizing is indeed a bit short as mentioned by others. The cups in my case are rather tight as well. Very sexy , it just disappears below your clothing absolutely smooth to the touch as well . Plenty of support without making the breasts seem lifeless. This is the perfect blend of modesty and reality. My husband gives it two thumbs up! Janis from Near Birmingham Mich

Band was a little tight but I love the demi cups. My husband likes me wearing it so.... what more could you ask for. I haven't had any problems with my nipples popping out but that may be because i'm pretty small. Mary from Galt, Ca

Exceptional. So unusual to find a bra that makes small breasts look like something everyone should envy. It is flattering without making them look bigger. I was thrilled that the cups were wide enough to go all the way around the breasts underneath, but shallow enough to fit well. I do not think it would provide enough support to look good on large natural breasts, it would not hoist them. But for the sleek figures with smaller bust it is great, and it is surprisingly hard to find bras for this body type, so it's a big deal. On sizing; I am a solid (not squishy) 30" around the underbust, and the 32 band fits great. So I don't think you need to size up in the band. But the cups are shallow and low-cut, wires don't come up high, so if you are bigger, it seems like you could size up in the cup without getting stabbed in the underarms. Robin from FL

The bra is very small, would not call it a 38, maybe a 34, and it is very confining, but still beautiful. I will have to buy an extender to make it a true 38.

Timpa Response: This bra runs small. It is always advised to size up in this style, however if you’d like a more generous fit, please see the Timpa cotton style demi bra 00001 underwire demi, which is cut fuller. Terry from Florida

This bra runs very small. Keep in mind the cup size is at least a size small as well as the band. Otherwise it is a lovely bra. Peachply

Great bra. Barely visable under tops. Love the combination of fabrics. Very pretty lace details. Does a great job of pushing up without exposing too much bra. As everyone notes, please round up a size. I am typically a 36A and I bought the 36B. The cups fit perfectly. I wished I moved up a band size to a 38. A little tight at first. But after several months of wear the bra is still performing well without being too uncomfortably tight. Sophia from New Hope PA USA

Nice looking bra.The cup seems comfortable however the band runs small so I wish I had seen the "Tomima tip before I purchased". I'm waiting to receive the bigger size. The bra has potential and my husband loves it. e

I purchased the Timpa 16449 Duet Lace Undewire Demi Bra with the help of the HerRoom customer service rep I received my order in less than a week. It fit perfectly and is very comfortable and very sexy. It supports and enhances my breasts and looks great under my "fun" tops I wear to "happy hour". I have since ordered other Timpa bras and have been very satisfied with the products and HerRoom customer Service. Sue from Kirkland WA
