I am very particular in purchasing my undergarments. In addition, this product comes in a limited size for me. I am very grateful that you carry the size that fits. Thank you very much for not forgetting about the shapely women! Pineapple from Montgomery New York

This had good, strong control but was too long in the torso for me (about 5'4"). At first, I thought I could make it work, but the extra length was not comfortable or convenient. Also, I have wide-spaced breasts, and this garment pulled everything upward and outward in the front and did not look natural. Judy from Arlington, TX, USA

I've worn this Va Bien style undergarment for 19 years. A local finer retail chain discontinued carrying this style and I wore substitutes that I was not pleased with until finding HerRoom. Over the years the materials used in the manufacture of this undergarment has changed. The feel is not as conforming, does not offer the extent of back support it once did, the lacy portion in the cups area is fragile and susceptible to snagging and ripping, and does not seem to has as long a life. I always tried to keep a few on hand to rotate them for longer use life--but price has limited that practice. I've been very satisfied with the customer service from HerRoom in ordering this item exclusively and have had only one occasion of a delay in securing the product because of back order. All considering I hope Va Bien does not discontinue is production of this style as it is far better than any of it other body briefers for me. Lucretia from San Diego, CA, US

I wore it a couple of days ago to a wedding. Since I suspected I would have trouble, I waited to use the bathroom until just before we planned to leave. I got the hooks and eyes at the crotch unfastened, but I was not able to reach to refasten them. So I tucked and smoothed the lower part of the garment into my panties; maybe next time I'll figure it out better. Otherwise it was comfortable and served its purpose well. Reba from Parkland, WA

Started wearing this 11 years ago and love it. However, as noted by other reviewers, the quality has deteriorated, for the price. Because the fit and control is the best I have come across, I will continue to order--unless HerRoom can suggest a comparable substitute. Your service is great! Mommy from Northern New Jersey, USA

This garment has great control and is very comfortable to wear.I especially like the three position closure as I am long in the waist and it fits perfectly. Wish the life span was a bit longer considering the price, but will continue to order it exclusively. Joan from MN

I purchased this one to replace my old one. I love it and it is comfortable to wear but still smooths things out. Diane from Sanger, CA

I'm long waisted, and this bodysuit was plenty long. I'd prefer an underwire, but the support is pretty good even without one. Pam from Tacoma, WA

Fits well and supports well. Wears out within a half-year period. A bit pricey to replace so often, but one of the best on the market I've found so far. Grete from DE

Quality of the garment has changed since i first started purchasing the garment (approx 10 years), and it takes too long to obtain from the time the order is placed. I don't believe that HerRoom has anything to do w/the manufacturing of garment or the time that it takes to deliver, but will be looking for replacement undergarment.

HerRoom Response: We apologize for your delay. This garment is not a great seller, and as such, VaBien does not keep a lot of stock in it. bethechange from McKinney/TX/USA

Keep mass producing this garment. I have worn this body shaper for years and I cannot tell you how much money I have spent supporting Va Bien. This garment has the right control, true to fit and is just an overall excellent product. I am disappointed that retail dropped the product but, Her Room has been a life saver.

One of the best! I need to wear a body suit to help my back. This one is almost perfect-giving good support while being comfortable. My only complaint is that the hooks and eyes at the crotch meet too far to the rear. For a person with short arms, like me, this requires contortions to close the hooks. Depending on where I am and what I am wearing, I sometimes find it easier just to pull the whole thing down and then back up again. Otherwise, this is great. cj from Grand Rapids, MI

I agree with the one who wrote requesting long torso suits...I am petite in height but have a long torso which looks dumpy, as I need a good foundation garmet. Unfortunately the designers of such are ignorant to think one size fits all...who wants a shaper riding up their butt and too short that the boobs are dragged down...yuck, get with the new designs already!!! amee from mi,usa

All these things are beautiful, but I am now much older, look good and want to stay that way. When you have arthritis in the hands, pulling a body suit on is very very difficult. WHY OH WHY do you not make a front fastening all-in-one.(corselette) It is SO much easier and ALL of these things could be bought and adored. I think you would sell millions to people like me!!!

By far this is one of the best bodysuits that I have purchased (size 40C). It is very comfortable and provides great support for the bustline and has wonderfuld tummy control. Patricia from Augusta, Georgia

I received my black Va Bien body slimmer with size 48DD cup very quickly. It is very comfortable and sexy in black. But it lacks tummy control and it made my poor breasts shoot upward and outward like guns on a battleship and it looked terrible under the clothes I slipped on. Sadly, I have to return it. I really do think an underwire would afford much rounder shaping. Pat from San Diego, CA

I am five feet tall & weigh 105lbs, but am a 34DD. The combination of being short, short-torsoed, and busty presents a tremendous challenge in finding clothes that fit well, let alone bras or shapewear that supports (lifts), minimizes, fits, & feels comfortable. I had purchased several of these bodysuits several years ago & needed more but the brand name had worn off the tags; I was in a panic. Bewildered & in desperation, I tried searching the internet. To my relief, I finally found it again. This is the most effective bodysuit ever! It indeed supports, minimizes (all over), and distributes the weight of my bust more evenly so that I don't come home with sore shoulders & neck at night. Much better than any bra I've ever had and you cannot beat the price. Anonymous from Bolingbrook, IL

We need a body shaper for long torso women, with a shapely bottom.

HerRoom Response: Unfortunately, no one is making a body shaper for taller women. The Glamorise brand does cut their lengths 2" longer than anyone else.

This is one of the best bodysuits I have ever purchased. It provides good support without binding, and the bra does such wonderful things for the bustline! I only have it in black, but plan on ordering 2 in the champagne color. My mother likes this bodysuit, too! Gwyneth from Morristown, New Jersey
