This garment just didn't fit me right. It was really hard to get into by myself and the cups didn't feel like they were big enough for me. I got a longline so that it I could have a strapless bra without it feeling like it was constantly falling down, but this just didn't work for me that way. The garment was of good quality and the service was great. I didn't appreciate having to pay over $8 to return it though..

Va Bien Response: Ultra-Lift cups tend to fit full – it appears that you ordered the wrong size. It could have been that the cups were too small, or even that the back was too small which would cause the cups to draw in too tightly. Cheryl from Eugene, OR

I purchased this bustier to wear under my wedding gown. I am short 5' 2" with a bit of a tummy ~165lbs This does a wonderful job at shaping it is a wonderful length it comes down low to cover my tummy. Worth every penny and the advice for going up in the band size and go down a cup size worked wonders for me. It is tight but its a bustier it's ment to be thats how it does its job it is still comfortable just everthing is in its place and is not going to move.

Sadly I had to return this item. I need it for an upcoming wedding, so I followed the sizing suggestion provided and ordered a 42C instead of my regular 40D. I assume that the cup size was too small as they were pointy once I put the bra on. It was also too loose in the band. So I am exchanging this item for my regular size.(which is of course on back order) and will try it again. Crystal from ga, usa

Very comfortable, it seemed to fit well but I had to continually pull up the top. However, it cinched where it was supposed to cinch and smoothed out my waist under my dress. I would buy it again. Kandi from Winneconne, WI, USA

Item is beautiful and seems well made but was way too tight, even going up a band size and down a cup size. I did manage to get it on and, even being way too tight, it was comfortable but caused bulges at the top. I am returning this item and hoping that goes smoothly. I already ordered replacement bra.

Va Bien Response: If this customer is size 42C, she could not have sized up in the band and down in the cup. The bustier is not available in 44B. Steph from Troy Mo

I followed the directions for picking my size, but it still didn't fit great and was very uncomfortable - After less then a minute wearing it I decided it was not right for me. Perhaps it's designed for the younger body - the sizing was pretty true but there's no way I could have worn it.

Va Bien Response: This is a firm control bustier which is designed to create an hourglass figure. Accordingly, you will feel tucked in. Cathy from Folsom, CA

The product was as expected. I did not order a size larger for the width. I am a 34 and have a tinny waist but curvy hips. If I had ordered larger, as some suggest, it would have been to loose so i'm glad I didn't. I'm a full B, sometimes a C even and the B cup is a little loose but will Work fine I suppose. I may put some gels in there. Overall a good product though I wish the cups fit. Its comfortable and very smooth. Will look classy with a white lace panty. I don't have much if a tummy but even still it is very slimming which I was really happy about for my fitted dress. Satisfied. Angelle from Washington

Bought this to wear under my wedding dress - the microfiber on the outside is a really nice departure from the usual satin on longlines. They say the cups run full and I found this to be true; I can usually get away with a C in a push up, but I went with B and that fits great. Not the "biggest" push up I've ever worn, but I can solve that with some cutlets :) I do definitely recommend going up in the band size if you have a tummy and/or hips. I'm 5'7", about 200lbs, and I normally wear a 38B, but ordered a 40B and 42B and ended up keeping the 42. I could hook the 40, but it was pretty darn tight. The 42 on the farthest hooks out still provides great shaping, but I can sit down and breathe! All very important since I'll be wearing it for an entire day! Alyssa from MN

It is an okay item, okay because it is as described, but after wearing it once the end of the boning popped out. I would reinforce those seams if I were the manufacturer.

Va Bien Response: While Va Bien is known in the industry for the highest quality standards, it is evident here that the customer received a defective piece, which we deeply regret. It is highly unusual for something like this to happen. Jen from New Freedom, PA

Offers nice support and GREAT shaping. My only request would be that they offer A cups. I have a very large ribcage but realtively small breasts. The seamstress had to use an extender at the top for my chest and then take in the cup size. No one makes a 40A so I had to have it altered. The support of the cups and the shaping and length of this garment make it worth the alterations costs I incurred though. I am 5'8 and 180lbs. Molly from Manassas, VA

I own an online lingerie store, but unfortunately do not sell Va Bien bras. I needed a bustier for myself and I tried every brand bustier out there, and none fit! The cups on all the brands I tried did not lay against my chest. I tried this Va Bien bustier and FELL IN LOVE!! It gives me an hourglass figure, and pushes the girls up giving beautiful natural looking cleavage. I highly recommend this brand. Beu-t-full-bras from Higley Arizona USA

I ordered this bustier knowing that it might be to big. Normally I wear a size 32b and the smallest size they offer is a 34b. Since the reviews on this bra are so great I wanted it to fit so badly, but sadly it was too big. I'm getting married and I want something to make my waist size consistent from the fittings to the wedding day. My waist size is an average of 25" I fluctuate 1" more or less, sometimes in the same day. So I need to make sure the bustier I get will be tight enough Ruth from Pasadena

I wear a 36-38, B-C cup (.depending upon style, make, etc) and love this. I followed other reviewers' advice and purchased the larger band size, 38, and smaller cup size, B. it fits perfectly. I will need a dresser, but that is to be expected with this design. It smooths the entire torso softly yet firmly and does not poke or chafe anywhere. No unfortunate bulges above or below and it smooths right through top of hips. Importantly, no bones pop out oddly when sitting down. I heartily recommend this. It is a fabulous shaping garment and i feel fabulous in it. Dorothy from Stamford, CT

I found this to run small. I normally wear a 38D in a bra. I had trouble getting this hooked.

Va Bien Response: In firm control bustiers such as this style we recommend that ladies with a pear shape size up in the band and down in the cup. In this customer’s case she wears a 38D bra, so we would offer her the 40C bustier. Amy from Roswell

Only giving it 3 stars because I have only worn it to try on my mother of the groom dress. Love it! Keeps your chest lifted and in check Very nicely. Material is soft and it looks sexy. I have to wear it strapless and I'm amazed how well my chest looks, all in its place. Lisa from Ohio

This item fit well, looked perfect under my dress, but was already falling apart when I received it. The material that wraps around the foam cups was pulling coming unraveled and pulling out of the stitching. Also, one of the hooks on back was pulling out of place. All before I even put it on! I can't imagine how it would hold up to wearing, let alone washing. Clearly not well constructed. So disappointing since it really did work under my dress.

It was actually a little too big and I needed to buy the next size down even though I always buy 36DD. It was super comfortable and covered by entire mid-section (I have a long upper body so this can be a challenge). Perfectly happy with the product! SB from Boston

I was given really excellent advice on this item by customer service. I had bought a La Perla SexyTown bustier and loved the comfort, but it wasn't long enough for my long torso. I was instructed to go down a cup size and stick with my band size, and this new bustier fit perfectly. By itself I found myself keep pulling it up, but it will probably stay put under my dress. A little more substantial that I was originally looking for, but still comfy! Just ask for for advice from CS- they are great and your best bet for a good fit Renee from Vermont

This bra is wonderful!!! The support is amazing and it provides a superior silhouette with no lines in my form fitting dress. I exchanged for a 38D to allow for comfort near my hips (they are wide and I have a long torso). I do recommend going up a band and down a cup for optimal fit. Amy from Fort Myers, FL USA

This bra worked great for my dress! i would suggest going down a cup size and maybe up a band size if u have a belly. I am usually a full DD but i didnt fill these cups but luckily i had push up inserts and got that little extra that i needed. im 5'10" tall and it was long enough. Dooley from aurora, il
