I was initially excited to find a size 38 in what seemed like a cute style, but its so ridiculously mis-sized its crazy. My mistake was in not returning it immediately - i tried wearing it, and after being uncomfortable every time i wore it for 5 minutes, gave up. When i actually measured the band, fully extended, it was only 32 inches. I can't believe the price of this bra for such poor quality and misrepresented sizing.

Timpa Response: We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with your purchase. We have never heard of a review like this. We stand behind our sizing. The truth is that a 38 inch back, measures 36.5 inches, but certainly not 32. jane from ma

I agree with the previous reviewer that the 36 band is tight, though in my case this is a WONDERFUL thing, as I'm a 34D/32DD during a few weeks of the month, so being able to wear a 36C is a lifesaver. I love love LOVE this little bra. I've been wearing contoured, lightly-padded bras because I really do prefer a rounded silhouette. Most soft-cup bras create a pointy sillouette, particularly as they compress DOWN, which has never made sense to me. But this little beauty lifts up and a touch in, just enough to create a beautiful silouette that is both natural and rounded. Another great thing is that the 36C looks like it will actually accomodate both my small and large days of the month, since the material is so flexible. The timpa duet with the embroidery is a bit less flexible, so didn't have this neat feature. I'm in the process of tossing the rest of my bras and switching completely to this. I just wish they made a racerback! Jere from Menlo Park, CA, USA

This is a sweet little bra and very feminine. I originally ordered it in a size 34B as I normally wear a size 34 nearly B. I found this bra was both small in the band and the cups so exchanged it for a 36B, which is a good fit for me. I truly love the fact that this is a soft cup bra and has no push-ups, or padding and is not stiff or uncomfortable. I have a whole drawer-full of stiff, padded bras that I never wear because they feel like I'm wearing a bra made out of coconut shells! I would highly recommend this bra along with Timpa Duet Embroidered Flower Underwire Bra 130472 for women who are petite and small busted as I am. AnnaMaria from Bradenton, Florida, USA

Almost perfect! But then again, almost in a bra is just not good enough. I returned it. Here is my review: The good -- FANTASTIC looking demi cup! SO pretty! This makes your boobs look GOOD, my small-breasted sisters! YUM! The lace is just perfect, and the white (which I ordered) is pristine and lovely. But the bad is that the band is WAY too tight for a 36, and it is too thin and cutting. It would be impossible to be comfortable in this bra as it is. I briefly thought about taking it to a taylor and asking for an extra two inches of band, but... On the whole, it was not worth it. The band is too thin anyway, and it cuts into me.

All my adult life it's been a struggle to find a bra that fit me well and made me feel sexy. I finally found it with this bra. Most bras just aren't made for small chested women. This one is and it fits very well. It's as comfortable as a bra can be and gave me a great confidence boost to wear it. Jennifer from Arkansas, USA

Size: 36A

I had quite a hard time finding the correct size in this bra! I normally wear 34A in all bras, so I ordered 34A, 34B, 34C and 36A. I thought from the comments that I would probably end up with the 34B, but I was surprised to see that the 36A was the correct size for Timpa. All of the 34's were so tight around the whole circumference that they were extremely squeezing-tight and uncomfortable; the 36 band felt like my normal 34 bands. I did find it odd that on some of the bras I received, a few of the different-sized cups fit the same, and I received 2 x 34B's (different colors) that fit differently! It appeared to me that Timpa was very inconsistent in their bra manufacturing, even on the same size.

Timpa Response: Thank you for your feedback, I am baffled to hear the in consistence sizes between colors, as I know for certain that this is untrue. Sprinkles from Lexington, KY

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

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

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!

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
