Biggest issue for me with this item is that the crotch snap is backward from all other bodyshapers I've worn. I didn't realize this until the first day I wore it. Big mistake on my part. It went directly to the trash. The material has very little "give" and did not do the good job that I had hoped it would. S from WA

Love the fit! My only complain is that the cup size is a bit big. My own bras are a D, so re-ordeed rhis in a C. Much better fit, but still a bit off. Jan from Chicago

At last a shapewear that really shapes. The larger cup sizes are so hard to find and I now know where to get the best garments possible. Thank you for acommodating the ladies with larger cup sizes. You have a customer for life. Seniordiva from Atlanta ga

This Body shaper was awful, no support, uncomfortable underwire bra area. Send back at once, dont buy.

Va Bien Response: Sorry to hear this bodysuit didn’t work for you! Sounds like you may have chosen the wrong size. We suggest that you take advantage of the new Universal Cup Size tool now available at HerRoom to help find the correct size to purchase. Hanna from Denver

I feel this was 60.00+ wasted. The top half of the garment is fine, but the bottom half is awful. The straddle part is way too long. I read some of the other reviews that said it was, but since I'm 5'8" I thought it would be okay for me. I noticed that herRoom always responds saying the problem was that the woman was short and needed a petite size. That's not the problem. It's like it needs to be cut apart and sewed back together about 2 inches shorter. And, the front pulls up so that the garment doesn't cover your lower pelvis area. If you try to wear this under a form fitting skirt or dress it's going to look horrible. I tried it on over my panties when it arrived and thought it might be okay. By the time I got home from work the next day, I was very unhappy. I had to keep pulling the bottom of it down to cover my pelvis. Some of the other items might be okay, but I do not recommend this one.

Vabien Response: So sorry that you had this experience with our product. Please note that someone can be taller than average – 5’8” in this case – and still have a short torso. This is called being “leggy” – which is a good thing! Va Bien bodysuits have a very long stride which is a wonderful feature for many women out there – but for those with short torsos, a Va Bien control brief paired with a bra is a better option. Try pairing style 3766 and 1510. kymom from Kentucky

The body is big , it doesn't strecht out . The purpose of making your tummy tighter is not there. Chris from New York

It got here quickly,but it didn't fit--the cups were monstrous (so am I, but they were bigger!) so I had to return it. It fit great everywhere else even though I'm 'round'. Next size smaller was on back-order until my wedding day! Great customer service! Rapid response and refund. T from Colorado Springs

This item fits me, but I was disappointed that the seat is cut so high. There is a good bit of tugging after walking or sitting.

Vabien Response: Va Bien bodysuits are designed with a longer than average stride, so petite customers sometimes find that extra fabric bunches up. We recommend that petite ladies go for a bra paired with a control brief rather than a bodysuit. Penny from Brandon. MS

This briefer did not fit well at all. It was very loose, almost like it was already stretched out. It also seemed to be long. I returned it. Aleta from Wisconsin

This briefer was very big and long on me. It almost seemed like it was stretched way out of shape and it actually had no firm control at all,it just hung on me. I was very disappointed because it's hard to find a 36DDD cup in a briefer. Aleta from Wisconsin

The underwire pokes into my underarm and is uncomfortable. I have bent it outwards to alleviate the problem, but I will not purchase this style again. I'm 5' 4" and the overall lenght is too long for my torso.

Va Bien Response: Va Bien bodysuits have longer strides (torso length measurements) than the industry average. Sorry to hear that this one was too long for you, hope you find something else! suzy from Muncie, IN, USA

Absolutely Love the control. I surely am disappointed in the cutting into my shoulders by the straps and constant riding up my tail,( wedgie syndrome), where I am tugging during any activity. Cant wait to take it off! Teresa from Silver Spring

Unfortunately, this item did not fit and is going back as soon as I can get to the post office. That said, the bodysuit is very well made, the cup size was perfect and had it fit I would definitely order another one. Jodie from IL

The body length is too short, and I am only 5'4". The cup size and shape are wrong - not allowing ample room for the breasts and making them an odd shape. The width is perfect - just tight enough to provide support and smoothing. Overall, I am very disappointed in the purchase.

VaBien Response: Most customers find that the stride (body length) of 1191 – and most of our bodysuits – are longer than average. It sounds like the size that you tried was too small. Karen from Red Bank, NJ

This Body Suit is Very comfortable. It has Firm Control. It washes well and makes your figure much nicer while giving your back some support. I'm losing weight and wearing this garment is helping me to achieve my goals. Wada from San Diego, CA

I liked the firmness in the body of the shapewear and the comfort of the bra cups are great!!! I wish it was just a little longer, but overall excellent! sony from Il.

This is the same bodysuit I wear now, but the cup on the new one I ordered was too big.

VaBien Response:Va Bien would be happy to inspect and measure the piece, then return it to you or switch it out for another piece if, in fact, there is a defect. diane from new jersey

It was just so short on me. I'm 5'10 but very short waisted. I wish the Va Bien 1190 was still available, which I notice is longer waisted AND soft cupped. I returned them and am going to try something else - off to go look, I guess. Maybe the 1192 (which a customer says does not have adjustable bra straps, but the details section says it does) , 1292 (looks too short in the back, though) or 1260, but I really don't like the under wire. Bring 1190 back!!!!

VaBien Response:Glad that you like 1190! That style seems longer than 1191 because it has no underwire. It is not anchored as securely around the bust, which allows the garment as a whole to stretch farther vertically. Overall, Va Bien bodysuits do run longer than the industry average.

This was really a well made garment, and fit well - except for the elastic around the legs. I have a very, very flat "bottom" and when I order the appropriate size for my bust the bottoms are always big. Bodysuits are a challenge for me. HOWEVER, I just received confirmation that my returns were received - very nice response. And, I ordering additional garments with hopes that they fit :) Michele from Bonney Lake, WA
