I ordered this item to wear under my Mother-of-the-Bride dress. I had looked online for a front closure design with minimal success, but thought I'd try the back closure. It was nearly impossible. Most of us don't have (or want) an assistant to help us dress, so front closure long line bras would be so much more practical. Deborah from Bakersfield, CA, USA

Very nice quality. Need to order larger cup size than you would normally wear---runs small, therefore it must be returned. Teresa from Ripley wv us

It fits well even though I am short with a large bust. It smooths as it should and works well for my dress. I am pleased with this item and think it shapes well. Sue from PA

I accidentally ordered 2 back to back due to computer shutdown and emailed minutes after it happened and couldn't get the duplicate order canceled. So I ended up with 2 bras and having to pay to return the 2nd. But the bra is exactly what I was looking for and great quality it seems. Lisa from Forest va

As a plus size women, finding a strapless bra that both lifts and holds breasts securely in place is beyond difficult. This bra does both and is comfortable. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I really needed a 46C, but it was not available. I am going to wear this bra under my wedding dress on July 31, 2011. I wish I could get it in the correct size, but that's impossible. Sandra from Lexington, TN USA

I normally wear a 40D but ordered a 42C because of other reviews. It was still a bit too tight yet the cups were too big. Sadly had to send it back. If you can get the right size, the item is well made with nice material. K.

Does a great job minimizing a large chest area. The corset area isn't very supportive, but if you have a smaller figure you can probably be fine. Not very comfortable to sit in, but corsets never are. Heather from land o lakes fl USA

Fits great and looks great under all the gowns I tried on. I thought the cups were too far apart at first, but once you have the dress on over it, everything looks perfect! emily from wi

I really like this item. It gives really nice support and goes low enough on your waist to hide those nasty love handles. I would definitely recommend this item to my friends. Katie from West Salem, WI United States

I really loved this bra, but the cup size was a bit too small. I've ordered the DDD and will see how that fits. DJ

I ordered this to go under my silk, sheath style wedding dress to add a little support for the strapless gown. I needed it to be invisible under the delicate fabric and dropped waist so the hemline didn't show through. The garment comes down the farthest on my hips of many I tried and even under my silk dress is nearly invisible! I have a long waist and am 5'7". The size was true to fit, possibly tending on the small side. I am typically between a B and C cup and I originally ordered the 34 B, which was too small. I returned it for the 34 C, which fits just right -but definitely NOT big! I'd err on ordering the bigger size, if in question between two sizes. Customer service on the exchange was great, and they were very timely. Over all, quality product, great for formal wear, and great service with Herroom! Alexis from Cardiff CA

I bought this bra to wear under my wedding gown. It's actually very comfortable, which is a plus since it'll likely be a long day for me. The only thing I wish it had was stronger boning and firmer tummy control. But it's well made and very supportive! Carrie from San Jose, CA

For a bit better fit, I should have ordered a 40C instead of 38C (my standard size). I have a wide back. However, I am still very pleased with the overall fit and shaping. I'm ordering another one in 40C and keeping the 38C. I love the shaping. Exactly what I needed. It is the best fitting strapless bustier that I have ever worn. Really holds and shapes the girls!

I'm pretty happy with this bustier. I was hoping it would be a little longer. I'm 5'8", 123 lbs, and I usually wear a 32D or DD. The 34C fits on the tightest row, and the cups fit fine. There isn't as much "ultra lift" as I expected, but I'm actually pleasantly surprised rather than disappointed. I bought it to wear with my wedding dress, and it fits great with it. The back is low enough that it doesn't show on a pretty standard strapless. It's "seamless," but it's still a pretty bulky bustier. For my wedding dress, this is actually perfect. I needed something thicker to help fill out the size-too-big dress. However, I can't imagine I'll be wearing this again any time soon. I tried it on with other dresses I own, and they are all too thin; it's very obvious I have a thick bustier on. But, like I said, in the wedding dress you can't tell. It might help that my dress has sashes that cover the bottom of the bustier. Summary: 34C fits a 32D or DD, and it's great under a substantial dress. Anything slinky or thin... no way.

The cups are wide set so they won't show under low necks. The resulting shape is a little odd without any other coverage, but with clothing over it, the bra shapes me beautifully and is supportive. Doesn't slip or slide, even jumping up and down. I'm between a 34 and a 36, so ordered the 34. It's tight but not uncomfortable, though it does take an extra person to put on because hooking in the front and turning is a little harder with a long-line bra. Casey from Bloomington, IL

I gave this a 4 star rating only because I ordered my true size and the cups were huge (as others mentioned). I returned the item without a glitch and reordered a cup smaller than my size--which fits perfectly! I have never been able to wear a strapless bra due to my cup size--until now! Great product and I look forward to being spectacular on my wedding day =) sceezix from California

This bra fits perfectly. It is incredibly comfortable and I really like the material- it isn't rough like some bras, and it works perfectly under my wedding dress. I sometimes wear a 42D but I'm glad I ordered a 40D- the 42 would have been way too big, so if you're in between sizes, order down. Calli from WI

My normal bra size is a 36D. I ordered this in both 36D and 38C based on recommendations from other reviews. The D cup was a little too loose for my liking. I wish I would have ordered a 36C also because the 38 is just a little loose in the body even on the tightest row. This is a very comfortable long line bra for both sitting and long-time wear. It goes down far enough to prevent my lower stomach from pooching out. It doesn't slip down too much, and probably wouldn't at all if I had time to order a 36C and the money to tie up $150 in bras until the returns are processed. My only problem with it is that you absolutely cannot put this on by yourself. My fiance has had to be my substitute bridesmaid when trying it on at home, and we're "eloping" with no guests or attendants so he will have to put it on me before our wedding. But if it stays up after a whole night in Vegas it is well worth the hassle and the money! Heather from Montana

This is a really well designed undergarment, but I found it somewhat uncomfortable and I wasn't happy with the fit and the way is squished extra flesh up into my armpit area. The cup size was correct, and so was the band size, but perhaps I'm just too fleshy for this particular design. I really liked the smoothing outer layer of material that camouflaged the boning contained within the inner layer. But once on--and I had to fasten the hooks and eyes in front and then spend about 5 minutes rotating the garment around correctly and straightening it--the underwire and cups seemed to ride too low on my chest wall/ribcage, and created a kind of fold in the cup. The side boning, when the garment was hitched up so the cups sat correctly, created a bulge under my arms that was very uncomfortable. My normal bra size is 34DD, but because I'm so fleshy around the torso and have a belly, I went up a band size. I know it's not recommended for petite proportioned women, but I prefer a longline that comes over the hips, and this one actually was perfect in that respect. I was really hoping this would be a comfortable longline, but it just didn't work for me. I had to send it back, unfortunately.

VaBien Response:Thanks for the complement on design. This style might have worked out if sized up another band size and down a cup size. The bra would still fit, but the bulge around the underarm area would be alleviated. Stephani from Alexandria, VA, USA

This was the keeper for me. Its not as pretty as the lace ones, but does the job. Long enough to reign in the belly budge and high enough in the back to not create "back buldge" over the top. Its the most comfortable and the cups are the most natural looking. Toni from Chicago

This bustier is AMAZING. I'm 5'7", 150 lb -- not fat at all, but with some muffin top, not a super flat tummy, and not a super tiny waist. With this bustier, I now have a gorgeous, voluptuous, fit, hour-glass figure. I feel so sexy. For the amount of shaping and control it provides, this bustiers comfortableness is astounding. I could wear it all day. I tried it under some tight, form-fitting dresses, and it was invisible under all but a very thin white dress (I could see the bottom edge of the bustier). Also, I can now wear my tight skinny jeans that gave me too much muffin top. So excited!! Lauren from Sacramento, CA, US
