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

Fit and covered well. I should have used the next row of tighter hooks however as when dancing I felt as though everything were bouncing. Linda Flores from Gardena, CA, USA

Where have you been all my life??? I have a drawer full of strapless bras that I might as well toss now that I have this one. Fits perfectly. Looks fabulous under very close fitting dresses that DON'T need any bulges or lines. LOVE this bra. I was concerned with paying this much for a bra, but glad I did. It was worth it. A lot of times 34B bras are a bit too generous, but this one is true to size and fits really well. I'm 5'3", so not a long waist, and it fits perfectly. Judi from Calif.

This fit even better than I imagined! I've always been heavy chested (literally), and could never find ANYTHING strapless that would stay up. This not only holds my chest in place, but it holds my baby bump in as well. I plan on buying another one for myself!!! Joslin from Ft. Washington, MD

I loved this item, but if you are in between cup sizes, order the smaller cup size. I have to exchange the 34DD (that I normally wear) for a 34D. These are full cups. Hopefully the 34D fits. The exchange process has gone smooth so far. Robin from St. Louis, MO

Loved this bra. Chose it for the wedding dress undergarment. A lot of control, shaping and support in all the right places, with no uncomfortable or visible boning. Sexy garter straps, everything adjustable/removable. This will see a lot of use besides the wedding! bwamelissa from Tucson AZ

This was the perfect bra. I'm 5'7" 183 lbs Size 14 and I run between a 36DD and 36DDD. I ordered the 36DDD and it fit perfect. I was REALLY concerned about support. Being bigger on top I have never experienced "support" without straps before but this bra did it! The boning was well padded and strong. Did not show through the dress. Lifted and separated and gave the perfect hour glass shape. Sadly I had to send it back. Under the arms was just a bit too high for my wedding dress to hide. Then I ended up not even needing a bra per my seamstress. (Hard to believe for the bigger of breasts) Conclusion...If you are looking for support and something to hide your softer bits...I suggest this bra! Serena from Nampa, ID

This bustier came packaged very nicely and was shipped to me in a couple of days. I have read previous reviews on this and would agree. Order band size larger and cup size smaller. It fits nice and looks great! Jan from Ct.

Outstanding fit and lift, I am full busted and had a plunging neck line. The Demi cup design is very sexy on and has stays in the cup to lift. Overall looked better than any other product. I did return another item that was similar and Her Room was very responsive. It gave me just what I needed on my wedding day. As a plus size, local department stores had absolutely nothing to meet my needs. I wanted a form fitting foundation long line bra. This particular item was much higher quality with comfortable padding where needed, strong clear straps and excellent lift. I wore it over a full slip with the garters out. Overall I was delighted with it, and it looked cute on, which was a plus for the wedding night. Would buy it again. Lisa from Modesto, Ca. USA

This bra is too short and folds everywhere if you're plus-sized -- no smoothing whatsoever. I bought this one instead and I LOVE it: http://www.herroom.com/Va-Bien-513-Full-Figure-Long-Line-Bustier-Bra.shtml K from Oklahoma City, OK, USA

I could not find bustiers in my size at department/specialty lingerie stores. I needed something to go under my strapless wedding dress and I was nervous about ordering on line. But this bustier fit perfectly and endured a festive evening of dancing and still remained comfortable and gave me great support. I am so glad I found your web site! Rachel from Chicago, IL

It's perfect! I bought it to wear under my wedding gown, and it looks great. But it's so thin that I'm going to wear it under strapless dresses all the time! I thought I'd never find a strapless bra that actually lifted and supported....voila! Gillian from New York, NY

Read all of the reviews, but in the end ordered my regular size and the bra fits perfectly. With 3 sets of hooks you are able to adjust the fit where or if need be. I am 5'4" and I can sit comfortably without the boning poking me. I was able to put the bra on without help from another person - just turn the bra around backwards, hook it, and then turn it back around cups in front. Dee from BOWIE, MD, United States

Great Item that shipped right away! I am 22 and a 36DD bra usually, but i am a size 8 everywhere else, so it is generally difficult for me to find stuff that fits right. i needed this bra to fit under a low cut bridesmaid dress and it fits pretty well. Stacie from USA

Fit perfect and helped fix my "muffin top" which was my goal since all the other corset like garments are always too short at the waist. I'm keeping the white one to wear for my wedding night as it's beautiful as well as sexy and functional. I highly recommend the garment. Your shipping and customer service is outstanding! I received my package within two days! Paulette from Michigan

This bra did not provide the support that I needed. The cups could not adequately support the weight of my large breasts and caused the bra to droop. However, it was a beautiful bra and might work better for women with a smaller breast size. Kendra from Dallas, TX, United States

It is very difficult to find a good-fitting strapless bra for my size; this bra fits well and is true to size. It is a 'lifting' bra, so it feels a little precarious until you layer something over it, but I think it will be comfortable and the boning doesn't show through my dress, which is wonderful.

I bought this to wear with my wedding dress. I love the long length of it, as some long-line bras stop too high up on the stomach to be effective. It feels very comfortable and seems to breathe, which will be a lifesaver in July. Britny from Wisconsin
