This is the one to get if you need a long line. Wearing it under my strapless wedding gown. I wear a 36B bra, and I bought the 38B boustier. Perfect! I'm 5'6" 150 lbs. There are three rows of hooks. The middle row is very comfortable and does the job, but can go even tighter in the last hook and still be comfy. Leigh Ann from Northford, CT. US

My general bra size is 32G, but based on other reviews and Tomima's recommendation, I ordered 34DDD. The band fits a little small with the 13 hooks in the back, so, I don't hook the top 3. The cups fit okay. Pros: it is very smooth in the front, which looks great under clothes. The bottom does not ride up and the cups do not fold over. Cons: you have to be a contortionist to fasten the 13 hooks in the back. However, once you have it on, it looks very nice and works well. Tracey from Mesa, AZ

Wow this runs REALLY SMALL! I'm normally a 34DDD, I ordered up a band size and down a cup size as recommended but it still had a good inch to go before even the largest hooks would touch. Maybe the sizing needs to be adjusted for this one? Otherwise I liked the style, it has great boning and feels like a quality product but I'm disappointed the sizing was so off.

I'm in love with this item! I bought this to wear under my wedding dress. I brought the bra with me to my first wedding dress fitting and it was PERFECT. My dress has a sweetheart neckline and this item was low enough to hide, but still provided great coverage! Definitely recommend going up a band size, and down a cup size (I actually had to go down 2 cup sizes). I normally wear a 38D. I purchased a 40C the first time, but it was still too big in the cup. Luckily, I was able to exchange the item with no hassle. The nice thing about this bra is that it doesn't ride up when you sit down. It's long enough that it stays in place. HIGHLY recommend for brides. Lisa

Very comfortable in my trial run on Valentine's day. It stayed in place for the most part and gave me lift, but it also pierced my back fat so I'm working on that area in my work outs. I also need to make sure this doesn't show in my dress which is my concern. Maxine

This longline strapless bra is everything I needed! It's supportive and fits so nicely. It shapes my body well. I recently purchased a regular strapless bra - size 34DDD -- so I followed the reviews and ordered 1 band size up, 1 cup size down, so a 36DD. It's amazing! I'm in a wedding this week and the seamstress who hemmed my dress suggested this website. When I went for my final fitting, she suggested for me to hook the bra on the loosest and then go tighter to follow my body shape, like a corset - amazing! I'm officially in love because it's super hard to find good garments that fit right. Melissa

As for the product itself, I'm greatly disappointed with the cups size - I did order as recommended -- one size down for the cups and one size up for the band. My normal size is most often a C cup. What I received doesn't have "cups" but rather "soup bowls"... They are too wide, they start too far from the sides and too low down -- my breasts get lost inside. Forget about any "lifting effect". Turns out this product is only for women with bigger breasts. Although, the bodice fits my torso right on the loosest hook. Generally a good quality product, great in conception, quite bad in sizing. Probably the only positive thing about my purchase was the fast international delivery. Ralitsa from Bulgaria

I ordered this to wear for my son's wedding. As soon as I tried it on, I couldn't even move or breathe in it standing up let alone sitting down. Boning is very restrictive. I followed advice and ordered a size up in band and size down in cup size. Even after I took it off, I could still feel it on my body! Elaine from New York

I didn't end up wearing it longer than just trying it on. I liked the way the fabric felt, very comfortable, but the cup size was a size too big and the band size was as well. The length of it could probably be 1-2 inches longer for tall women, I'm 5'11" and when I bent at the waist, it scrunched back up over my hips. It also didn't feel like there was much support, as far as sucking you in. I'm about 175lbs....post baby, but was a size 4 pre pregnancy, so I was looking for something to suck in my tummy and the extra fat that's sticking around on my hips. Sara

Haven't gotten to wear this for a full evening yet, but the try-on seemed ok. As comfortable as you would imagine being squeezed into a sausage casing would be. As recommended, I went up a band size and down a cup size. The boning doesn't dig into my hips like some of the other ones I tried on and it doesn't bow out when I sit, so all in all, does the job as comfortably as possible! Kristen from St Louis, MO

I wanted a bustier that was longer than the one that I had, I was looking for a new one that would sit below my low waisted jeans. Based on the descrlption, that the length of this bustier is 13" tall, which is long for a bustier. This one fits well beneath my waistband! Made well & quality material. Love this & would recommend to anyone! PattyL from Seattle

I am usually a 36DD. I took the advice for this item and ordered a 38D. The band fit just fine as there are three rows of hooks, but the cup was way too big! Darcy from USA

This bra is very supportive and does not "add" extra to what I already have, but it does lift the girls and hold them! I am probably more of a 32DD in size, but the 32 would have been too tight around my rib cage and stomach. So I sized up the band and down in the cup and this seemed to work well. It's comfortable for a corset/bustier and the length is good. It covers my iliac crest bone (top hip bone) so there are no tummy fat lumps under my dress. To help you other shoppers, my measurements are 37.5" bust; 30.5" under bust; 29" waist; and 39" hips. I weigh 140lbs. I'm 5'6" tall. This is overall a good piece! I wish it were a bit less expensive, but it does the job well. Jessica from Westerville, OH USA

I listened to the videos of the Va Bien Ultra Lift Longline Bustier and ordered according to the recommendations on size. I am a 40DD so I ordered a 42D. The bustier was so small in the back, I couldn't even hook the first hook. I was also hanging out of my cup. My recommendation for this item is if you have any weight in your front or back, size up more than one size and buy the extender. If you are thin, you can probably only have to size up one size. Bottom line - it runs small and the cups don't hug the body like they do in the picture. I was hoping those magic fingers would wrap around the breast rather then just sit above the bustier. This is not a great bustier for curvy women. Virginia

Overall, not bad, but the cup size and shape were not as I pictured. The cup angled down and was not rounded. I first ordered this item in a 34DDD because I normally take a 32G. The 34 was too small around back. The 36 is fine, but the cup doesn't work. Sunshyn from Virginia

I followed the recommendations and originally ordered a 40D (I typically wear 38DD), but I could barely get it closed, so I returned it and got a 42D , it's actually a tad loose , but it'll work. I wore it all day to make sure I could stand it because I can't tolerate most strapless bras for more than an hour. It was fairly comfortable. I find it interesting that it came with plastic straps but no cloth straps. Also, the replacement was clearly another return, the tissue paper was crinkled and the bustier wasn't placed as neatly in the box as the first one I got Catherine from Lexington, ky

The top holds me in and I don't feel like every thing is going to fall out, which is good. However, the control was stated as firm yet it actually fit a little loose. I wanted something that would squeeze me in a little better. Michelle

Love it. so far. I haven't worn it yet, I bought it for a wedding. I bought a size bigger and a cup smaller as suggested. I wish I would have left the cup size the same (DD) for a little more coverage. All in all, I am pleased. Angie from Richmond/VA/USA

Excellent fit. Be true to your size. I comfortably wear a 36B normally. No bulging or squeezing into it. I ordered a 38B, and it fits perfectly. It has 3 rows of hooks along the back for adjustment inward or outward; however, the 38 fits using the last (outward) row of hooks. So, if you normally wear a 38, this will be too small. I am a regular/medium size B, and it fits just fine. If you're closer to an A cup, then this will be too big. It extends past my navel & stomach. It is stable and does not roll upward. It also stays in place. Great firm support! Note: If you are not true to your real bra size, this one will let you know, when you order. The ordering suggestion was correct: Go up a bra size and down a cup size for most women larger than a B cup. This is my first time ordering a bra on-line and was really concerned about the fit and support I needed for my wedding dress. I'm glad I did. I hope my comments are helpful. Anne from OKC, OK

Excellent fit and holds you in like it's supposed to. The bra part of the bustier does not slide down like normal strapless bras do - even did the "jumping up and down" test. Everything holds. :) Bo from Canada

I'm a busty girl with a smaller frame. I was hoping to get something with more support than what this bra gives. Though the belly control is ok, I think it is just average. I followed the one band up and one cup down rule and my breasts did not fit or get any support. The bra itself is of great quality but just not right for me. Gretchen from Allentown, PA

Followed the advice and ordered 1band size up and 1cup smaller. Fits well, offers support (unlike most strapless bras). Must have a friend to help u try it on, to avoid removing tags. Wish the garters were made of something stronger than the thin plastic A from Fl

I ordered this item to wear under a strapless dress at an upcoming wedding. I'm undecided on whether to return it or not. It looks ok under my dress, but the corset is shorter than I would like (I'm 5'9) and I find the cups are widely set. It feels stable, but doesn't quite give the lift I was looking for, and I think it makes my chest look really wide. I'm not sure it's any better than my strapless bra at keeping things where I want them. Jen from Vancouver
