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

If you want a true control garment, accept no substitutions...this is the real deal. I am small-busted, but all my weight goes to my middle, and I have had trouble with clothes looking decent all my life because of it. But when you wear this garment, you will honestly be able to wear things that normally make you look awful. You don't jiggle anywhere...you're so controlled, you CAN'T jiggle. I would never be without my Va Bien. Only my mom and sister know what an unfortunate figure I really have. Melissa from Georgia

Good quality, feels good to wear. The back end covers me completely, although (due to my belly) if the lower torso was 2" longer it would be perfect. A hook & eye extender works to give me a little extra room so it doesn't pull down. Jane from OR

This briefer would be so good IF the crotch hooks were not so far away. Bring the leg openings down and bring the under arm-back area higher. The cups need to be better contoured. As we get older we need more coverage to get the under arm back fat controled...not popping over. Or our belly out the leg openings. Anyone listening.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. You state that you are tall. Unfortunately, bodysuits are designed to fit an average height person. This is why you are having fit issues.

Va Bien Response: YES, WE’RE LISTENING TO YOU, SANDRA! THANK YOU FOR THE FEEDBACK. ONE OF THE CHALLENGES IN DESIGNING BODYSUITS IS ACCOMODATING WOMEN OF DIFFERENT HEIGHTS WHILE SIZING ONLY BY BRA CUP. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE REGARDING FIRM CONTROL BODYSUITS SUCH AS THE STYLE YOU TRIED, WHICH WILL ONLY STRETCH SO FAR. WHILE THE STRIDE OF OUR BODYSUITS IS LONGER THAN THE INDUSTRY AVERAGE, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT FOR SOME TALLER, FULLER WOMEN, THE GARMENT WILL BE TOO SHORT, LEAVING THE LEG OPENINGS TOO HIGH AND THE UNDER ARM SECTION TOO LOW. VA BIEN BODYSUITS FEATURE THREE HOOKS IN THE GUSSET SO AS TO ACCOMMODATE DIFFERENT LENGTH TORSOS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. SORRY TO HEAR THAT THE STYLE DID NOT WORK FOR YOU, AND HOPE THAT YOU FIND ANOTHER THAT SUITS YOU BETTER. PERHAPS A STYLE WITH LEGS, SUCH AS OUR VA BIEN 1192, WOULD WORK BETTER AS IT WOULD SOLVE THE LEG OPENING PROBLEM. Sandra from PA

As being 5'8" and overweight by 30 pounds, the garment is not made for a larger proportioned lady. It needs to be longer in body, higher on the sides underarm and back to control the older back fat. Sandra

I agree hands down with Mindy from Chicago. I received the item extremely fast. However, the cups do not shape and mold my breasts correctly, and are a little too pointy for me. Tara from Maryland

I am a large naturally busted women who is 5'5" 146LBS. I feel that this body suit's cup size is on the tight side and my breast don't lie right. It needs to do a better job of holding back the natural love handles. I wish they had a 36DDDD but they don't. mindy from chicago

This is the only underwire body briefer I can find; the straps are too long and the adjustment part of the strap slips and does not stay in place; the body of the briefer seems a little wrinkly and does not fit as well as the last one I purchased in a size 44DDD. I have lost weight and went down one size; however, I think that the body briefer should have more support and have a strap that adjusts better than the one I have.

I have worn one piece briefers for years. This one is way too short in body. Fit is off under arms and cup shape. A shorter person may do better, but a plus size woman will not like the fit. Straps are nice feature, but not comfortable to wear. I sent my order back. Sandra from Susquehanna/ PA/ USA

I did receive my item on time , some what very disappointed in the quality of the garment after about 10 days the strap broke. I had to sew the strap very easy to do but I feel that at the price it shoula have never broken that soon. I do rellay love the VaBien , I will continue to purchase them . You can not find them in stores anymore. cynthia from euclid ohio ( usa)

Good service, Great product, So glad I finally found an "extra firm" bodysuit. I haven't been satisfied with hold since Playtex quit making the"I can't believe it's a gridle" and the "18 Hour Girdle". Thank you so much!! Please continue carrying this product. Very comfortable fit everywhere, a little tight getting into the first time but once I got used to the firmness it went right on.. LWH from Opelika, Al. USA

i may have a longer torso than most, but i have to keep pulling the body suit up so the underwire is under my breasts and not 3 inches below below them, and then the the panty part goes up my rear even more than already does. but when the wire is in place, it does have good support, but the panty part is too uncomfortable. If you have a small rear and short torso, it may be great for you. amy from west bloomfield mi

Quick service! Fits perfect. First all in one Ive worn and am pleased with the ease it is to put on. The only thing is I have a hard time with the hook and eyes. Vicky from California

I would like this to come in a larger cup size than DDD; also, I thought it didn't fit tight enough in the body and at the bust and am worried that a 42DDD will be the right fit in the body but too small in the cup. I also did not like the fact that the panels in the front above the crotch are loose rather than sewn to the bodysuit. Unfortunately, it's the only choice of garment that I have with an underwire that comes close to fitting me. I will probably purchase another one in a 42 DDD, but again, I'm worried the cups will be too small. Marsha from Northfield Center, OH

Surprisingly comfortable; doesn't feel restrictive; don't have to tug too hard to put it on. Very pleasantly surprised. Would recommend. Shelley from New York, NY

I have been searching for many years now for the perfect one piece body shaper that delivers everything it claims. These garments are the best on the market. I do wish the legs were cut slightly lower but all in all I love this garment. This is my 6th Va Bien Extra Firm Bodysuit. Thanks Va Bien for making such a great garment!

Most comfortable all in one I have ever worn. I only wish that the cups were a bit padded and shaped. I'm ordering my third one! Kim from Miam, Fl. USA
