Overall, great item. The fact that the boning is set in material that is separate from the material that the garters are attached to is helpful in making it not feel like your stockings are pulling your bra down. It is just long enough to cover the tummy and love handles instead of sit on top like so many corset bras do. Size is a bit questionable. I normally wear a 36C or D but since so many people said it was usually too small I ordered a C. It fit okay, but with the way the cups are shaped to curve around almost on top of the breast when it was pulled tight to my body under my dress it created a bad line. Kristal

Loved this! Con's are that you really can't put it on yourself...so single ladies, you WILL need a friend to help you.Also, it can be very uncomfortable to sit in...very. Pro's are that it slims you and hold those babies right up there. I wore this for a Halloween costume party and had it on for 5 hours-I did not once have to adjust it to make sure they were being supported. Lea from Raymond,NH

Very comfortable, though I did need a band size larger than usual, cup size was perfect. Lee-Amber from Chipley, FL USA

This bustier bra is very soft and smooth on the outside. There is boning on the bottom layer. It feels very comfortable and fits wonderfully. It fit true to size on me. It's long enough to cover my tummy/waist problem areas and give a really nice shape. Love it-Couldn't have asked for better! Kristine from Sewell/NJ/USA

This bustier is very comfortable yet slimming. I found it to be true to size, or perhaps a bit smaller than I would like, but perhaps this is because of the way the cups lift and separate you--at this size I am more accustomed to minimizers. I definitely like the flattering fit and am looking forward to wearing it out under my dresses. cd

I just tried on, it feels comfortable and fits very good, maybe the cups are a bit large but that helps to give a slimming look, if you like your breast to look more "bulky", then ordering a smaller cup size could help. It moves with you, which is something very nice. Kari from MI

I have searched a long time for a strapless bra that would fit a full figured gal like myself and finally a strapless bra that holds the girls up well! Just make sure that the bra cup fits. I thought it ran a little big in the cups for this brand. Also if you are more fluffy, I would go up one in the number for this one. I was lucky. I guessed right about the number and it still fit and gave me a beautiful shape. My seamstress marveled that I could fill out the bridal gown well. This ultra lift longline performed wonders! And I feel it is very comfortable!!! JJ from Norcal

I originally purchased this in a 34DDD but found it to be so tight across my hips that I couldn't breathe. I also found the cup size to be a bit large but I am normally in between sizes so that wasn't much of a shocker. I really like this bra because it comes down longer than most of the other long line bras I have tried, preventing the reverse muffin top. The material is smooth, seamless and comfortable. I especially like that the cups are molded and the boning holds you up but doesn't prevent you from moving. If you are curvy make sure you pick a size that will accommodate your hips! I normally wear a 32 band but knew that would never work for the rest of me. Jessica from Pullman, WA

I bought this bustier for my fall wedding. It gives a great smooth line and is very comfortable. I found the cup to run large, because I normally wear a 38 C . I decided to go up to a 40 band and down to a B Cup, which worked well. The cup fit is different than most bras and doesn't lie flat against the body in all spaces but this gives you a great lift and full looking bust. Very happy with my purchase. The company has a great return policy but you do have to pay the shipping. Maryann from Pittsburgh

This fits terrific. My dressmaker advised that many torsolettes/bustiers can squeeze, pull, or cause bulges at the top & bottom. I'm a street size 8 (30" waist) with a 34D-36D bust and have a very hard time fitting into any bra. This fits very nice, slim through the middle & the cups hold my bust up rather than pull down. I ordered the 36D & it fit well. The boning is a little visible down the belly through the fabric of my dress, but I have boning in my dress & it isn't a visible deterrent in my case. I'm pleased to have a bridal white undergarment rather than the nude & the garter attachment is a sexy touch to a functional piece. YoKaren from Oakland CA

The best longline bra I have tried on so far. I originally ordered a size D cup (even though I usually wear DD) and it was still a bit roomy so I am trying with a C. The bra is of very nice quality and the fabric feels like it holds you up while feeling very smooth against your body. I tried it on under my wedding dress and there were no lines. Exactly what I was hoping for! Maria from Columbus

I wear a 32G and bought this bra in a 34ddd. Although it doesn't completely fit because it does not come in my size it fits pretty well. I like that the body part of the bra has two layers to keep it looking smooth. I am a little disappointed that the cups tend to point outwards instead of strait ahead. Rebecca from Connecticut

I probably could have worn the 34DDD but, this size was so comfortable, and I really didn't need the "Scarlett O"Hara look. My gown shows every line underneath and this showed nothing but the tiniest outline at the base of the spine. I recommended it to my future daughter-in-law. If I should need one in another color I will get it without hesitation Toni from NY

This thing was amazing! It stayed in place and was fairly comfortable for such a structured peice. I'm a DD or DDD depending on what I wear and this product was very supportive and sexy to boot. Monica

This is the 7th bustier I purchased for my wedding! If it was the first I probably would have sent it back, but I am tired of looking and it is the closest to a good fit. The cup size and band size seem to run true. I does not do a lot for cinching my waist, but it does create a smooth line. Amanda from Arizona

First - Great Service from HerRoom! Secondly - A well made, quality bra. I really wish this bra worked for me - but I am very short waisted and the boning bent out slightly, so it wouldn't work for me in a form fitting dress. I would definitely recommend this bra as long as you are average height or taller. Mary from Destin

I have never bought a bustier in my life--I always thought I was too large in the bust. I purchased Va Bien 1503 out of quiet desperation! My daughter's wedding was looming and my mother-of-the-bride dress was hanging there. Calling on reinforcements to hook up the back (you can't do it yourself), I turned and looked in the mirror. I couldn't believe it. It fit like a dream. I ordered the exact size I always purchase and it was right on! The material makes you look several inches smaller, it doesn't ride up and it is comfortable. If this over-60 lady is happy, you will be, too. Ordering was simple and it arrived right on time. I highly recommend this to anyone who thinks they are too big to wear a bustier. You will love it. Susan from Florida

It does not run true to size. It runs EXTREMELY small - especially the cup size. Lisa from Brooklyn, NY

I normally wear a 32DDD so I decided to try the 34DDD. The cups were way too big so I exchanged for a 34DD which works better. I'm going to wear this with two different bridesmaid dresses this summer, and I've had the hardest time finding something that works. I think this will be my best bet, though the cups go a bit high on the outside so I'm worried I'll be tugging the dresses up all night to keep that concealed. Alicia from Laurel, MD

Excellent delivery. This is an extremely comfortable garment. It did not work with my gown -- it was cut a bit high so I've returned it for a backless model. It felt true to size. Northern California shopper

I was thrilled when the product arrived sooner then expected. I ordered the correct size by reviews of the product and how under garments honestly fit my body. It was nice to find a bustier for fuller figures and that is comfortable. I am very pleased with the product. Cherie from Renton, WA

Excellent bra! Very natural and padded. Too bad they do not have 34A because they only start from size 34B. Otherwise, it would of been perfect to wear under my wedding dress. I highly recommend this bra. cuteyam

The torso is very comfortable, but the bra cups provided a very weird fit. I have a small frame--am a 32DDD, and the cups seem to make my breasts separate to the sides with little cleavage. I bought the full figure va bien in a 32DD and although the torso is more uncomfortable with the boning, the bra cups gave awesome lift and cleavage--very sexy! i will return this one and keep the full figure one. mary from hanford/ca/usa

I bought this bra to wear with a bridesmaids dress, and also to have a decent strapless bra to wear with dresses. It held up well through the wedding. It did ride up a bit, but perhaps this would not have been an issue if I used the garter straps. Also, the front center bone curves outward a little on its own, but once I was in a form fitting dress is wasn't an issue. The cup boning is a nice feature, and I definitely felt that it helped things stay in a perky shape. All in a all, it was worth the investment. I'm sure I'll get other great uses from it.

after reading the reviews I decided to go with one cup smaller and one size up, and it fits very well. the bones at the bottom do stick out a little but it is very slimming and works well with my dress. Lisa from Laurel Springs, NJ
