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

A good strapless bra. I am tall and busty and this bra offers nice support and stays in place. It is shorter on the torso (on me) than in the picture, but comes slightly lower than my waist. My only complaint is that the cups are set a bit wide, so it "lifts and separates" instead of providing a "push-up" look. Follow the fitting guide!!!! I did and it was the right size on the first try. Plus sized bride from Washington dc

It was very well made but I could not remove the garters and didn't want to wear them. Perhaps I ordered the incorrect size but I was unable to get into it alone and had to return it. Other orders from Her Room have been excellent. Pam from Los Angeles, CA USA

The quality of this bra is great. I tried it on and wanted to wear it with my wedding gown, but for some reason it hurt my back and felt uncomfortable.

VaBien Response: Thanks for your kind words about our quality. 1503 is typically high up on the comfort scale, so this sounds like a sizing issue – perhaps too tight. However, to a degree the garment is supposed to fit snug, since it is designed to create an hourglass figure. Although most customers do find the garment quite comfortable, perhaps a bustier is simply not for you and a bra paired with a control brief would be best. We would recommend trying our Ultra-Lift Perfect Strapless 1506, paired with our Smooth Couture High Waist Short, 632. Melissa from West Covina, CA

I bought this for under my wedding dress and after reading other reviews went with the up a size down a cup size which seemed to do the trick! It works well under my gown however I have a long torso so it does not come down as far as I wished. Jessica from Saugus ma USA
