This fit very poorly on my frame. I have a little extra skin, but I'd have more support by tying tupperware bowls inside my dress. This garment made my bazongas look like they were lying on a shelf & was even made worse by the very short torso. My torso is average, but I can comfortably slip into petite sizes sometimes. This was on the petite-petite side.

VaBien Response: While style #1294 does have a longer than average stride (torso length) it is shorter than some other Va Bien bodysuits. VaBien 1570 has a longer torso. Perhaps this would have been a better option. Kate from Broad Channel

I liked the garment very much except that it did not flatten my stomach. With extra support across the tummy it would be great! Susan from Metairie, LA, USA

My friend is making my dress for my wedding, and we needed a really good foundation garment so that everything would fit/look right in the dress. I found it in this one! I feel very supported and I like how there's a snap gusset so that if you need to go to the bathroom there's an easy way. I will warn you all, however: I would not recommend this for anyone taller than me (5'5) or with a very long torso. The other reviewers are probably right in saying that it won't reach all the way up. Luckily, I'm short enough that it works perfectly. Lisette from Washington

This item should be sized according to height. Since I'm tall, and it's a bodysuit, not a full slip, the bust placement is dictated by how long the torso is, and where the legs start. Therefore, the bust sat very low on me (since I'm tall and have a long torso). Didn't provide any lift--in fact it pulled my chest down! I had high hopes for this product and it may work well for someone shorter, but wouldn't recommend for tall. I am returning.

Va Bien Response: Unfortunately manufacturers of bodysuits have to make a choice between sizing a style by cup versus by length. 1294 does have a longer-than-average stride (length), but clearly for customers who are much taller than average, the stride is limited. V from Long Beach, CA

This piece was made nice but did not fit me well, was way to short for my long torso & did not come high enough to fit my chest. Would good for someone shorter. Amanda from NJ

I have a very long torso so this item did not work for me, however, if you are more proportionate than I am sure this would be wonderful. One of the prettiest body suits I had found. I returned it and order to separate pieces. Waiting for them to come in! Kelli from Renton, WA

I just got the product and think it seems pretty good, I looked all over trying to find a one piece suit that was strapless and had the shorts so that way I only had one thing underneath my wedding dress. Was thrilled when I found this one. I just tried it on and it does help give a slimming look but it seems a little short. I'm only 5'6 and it just barley comes to my breasts, but otherwise I really like it. I think if it would come in a size larger it would fit me better though, so otherwise a great item and fast shipping. Some of my bridesmaids are also going to get this, and I think that if HerRoom would make it in a plus size you would be able to sell even more as two of my bridesmaids are on the plus size and are trying to find something just like this but can't. Otherwise great find.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for this feedback. HerRoom does not make this garment, but we will pass along your suggestion to Vabien. ashley from Nebraska

A good quality item that looked exactly as it did on the website. It just didn't fit the way it needed to - the bra was the right size, but waist and tummy were not quite snug enough for my taste (I like very firm control). The torso was also a little long (I am 5' 3"), so it bunched up at the waist and lost the smoothing factor. If they had a petite line, I would try this product again. Deborah from New York, NY

This item did not fit well on me. The top portion was way to big. I'm sure on the right person, this would be a lovely item- just not for me. Diane from Westminster, Colorado

Well made and pretty. The bra portion runs towards the big side. I am short (5' & 118lbs) and short-waisted and the boning seemed fine to me. I was, however, looking for more "control" from the belly button down. I ended up with a high wasted panty attached to a strapless bra which held everything in more, but was not NEARLY as comfortable. I did return this item to HerRoom and have been totally satisfied with their service and attention. J from AL

I purchased this for my daughter - she said it was very comfortable - and she is not a tall person. She did agree that the lacy material did show through because her dress was sheer and she had to wear a slip over it. Otherwise it was a great item and she will use it again.

I liked this a lot. I wore it with the optional straps attached and felt pretty comfortable all evening. It gave me a great shape. My only SLIGHT criticism is that the crotch opening system is a little bulky; and my only problem is that I am 5' 3" tall and, since my lack of height is in my torso, the boning is a bit too long for perfect comfort. So if you are short, you might want to pick one without boning. But, all-in-all I am very pleased and will be keeping this item.

HerRoom Response: Thank you Carolyn. You bring up a good point. Most shapewear is designed for average height women. Tall and short women usually find that it does not fit correctly. We at HerRoom are always looking for exceptions to this rule. Carolyn from Santa Barbara, CA

Material was very luxurious; very sexy. Only issue is that the top seemed larger than what I expected and offered little as far as a "boost". I wear a 34 B bra and this item seemed more like a 34 C. Jillian from Plymouth, Michigan, U.S.A.

I needed this garment to wear with a dress for a wedding and it was perfect. The girdle was comfortable but yet was slimming in all the areas that I needed it to be. It made the dress fit like it was suppose to. The girdle was like a second skin to me and I recommend it to anyone that needs a slimming effect. I didn't even know that I was wearing it. There was not tightness or confining feeling. Debby from Gaston SC USA

I am very pleased with the promptness in which Her Room processes orders, and the quality of the items I ordered. The bodysuit is well made and exactly as described. I ordered two sizes because I am "between sizes" and was not sure which size would be the better fit. The larger size turned out to be the better fit, however, I had to return both because they were too short in the torso; I am tall and torso length is a common problem I have with body suits and swim suits. Doing business with Her Room was a very pleasant experience, I would definitely order from them again and I would not hesitate to recommend them. Donna from Albany, NY

I am very happy with the fit and feel of this product. The back is a great low cut and the short of the body suit don't roll or ride up. While the lacing on the body suit it very sexy, if my gown wasn't a heavy lined satin, I'm sure it would show. Nonetheless, I would say this suit is best in class. Happy Customer from Chicago, IL

The perfect foundation that provides a smooth line and all around firming control where needed. The foundation is ideal under formal dresses and wedding gowns. Just fabulous! The foundation is also very comfortable to wear on a long occassion. mcselver from fort lee,nj,usa

A good idea would be to offer/make straps that are clear/invisible. BG Barbara from Hartford, CT, USA
