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

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

I bought this for my 28 years old daughter. She has a hard time finding thing to fit . She was very happy with feeling and fit. Being her breast size isn't easy. thank you Magali from WASHINGTONVLE

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

The corset is well made and the perfect length for my long torso. I have yet to try it on with my wedding dress as I just received it today. I followed the suggested sizing guidelines of ordering up a band size and down a cup size (normally wear 34 C) however the band is a little loose. Cup size fits great but I may return for a 34B to get the level of control that I want. I'm 5'9 and 140 lbs if that helps anyone! Nicole from Modesto, CA, United States

Good support for a strapless bra and doesnt slide down! Very tight, but that's necessary to provide the upward support. I'm a little thick through thr middle, so needed spanx to hold in the muffin top. Goin' strapless from Ne

I usually wear a 34E and this bra fits perfectly up a band size and down a cup size. While it isn't the prettiest corset out there, it gives a great shape in the cup and while it's supportive and slimming through the waist, it isn't uncomfortable at all. My wedding dress looks fantastic and the fitter thought it was a perfect solution - we tried on six different options and this was the clear winner. Brie from Austin, TX

I ordered this one cup size larger and one letter smaller. Fits great, feels comfortable. My sister was at my house when package was received and she liked it so much she's ordering one for herself.

The fit is excellent. It slimmed my stomach and uplifts my breasts. I am so excited to have this bra to help complete my wedding attire. My dress has a sweetheart top with a low back and this bra works wonderful. I would happily recommend and reuse this site in the future. Thank you! Nicole from Waldorf, Md
