The first strapless I have worn that stays in place and, of all, is comfortable. Linda from St Louis MO

Very please with both the construction and fit of the bra. This is the first time I purchased this brand and it ran very consistent in sizing to other bras purchased from other manufacturers. Will definitely fulfill its purpose as a convertible bra. Dolores from Port Orange, FL USA

I LOVE THIS BRA! I have searched all over creation looking for a bra that would compliment a sweetheart neckline for my wedding gown and it was an absolute nightmare. I was on the verge of tears several times and completely frustrated. The sales woman at Nordstrom recommended I try this website and I am so happy I did. I lost a great deal of weight and it has completely changed the shape and form of my breasts. There wasn't one bra that looked good on me and then I met the Va Bien Ultra Lift! This bra lifts my breasts, gives them volume and makes them attractive again. I had the perfect gown but was so sad because I couldn't find a bra to compliment it. Now my wedding apparel is complete and I immensely happy. A word of advice: THIS BRA IS SNUG. It's supposed to be because this is how you get your support. It absolutely will NOT move on you. Because of this, it's imperative that you order this in your correct size. I would recommend getting measured first as well as following the size recommendations. I am a 36G and ordered this in that size and found it was snug, but not overwhelmingly so and after 30 min of wear seemed to be tailored to fit me. It doesn't "stretch" but it does give a little. But this does not affect the support. I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this to any woman looking for a lift and support! I'm not a customer for life! I will purchase more from Va Bien & Herrom.com Mackie from STL

Had to send it back for a better fit - the band was too loose and the cups too small. Me from chattanooga, tn

This bra did not fit well. It created too much of a conical appearance which was simply not attractive. Maybe I should have gone up a cup size because the top of my breasts seemed to "overflow" out of the cup so the top of the cup would cut into them, creating a clear line under clothing. I considered trying the larger cup size, but with the shape of this bra, I think the style simply does not work for me, unfortunately.

Va Bien Response: We do not recommend sizing up in the cup of this style, unless accompanied by a downsize in the band, because the cups run full. However if you were spilling from the top, either the cups were too small or the band was too tight. We would encourage you to measure yourself to ensure you are ordering the correct size.

Might have been a fine bra. Per the size charts on this site, I take a universal size D6. Using that size, I have purchased several bras from HerRoom which fit perfectly. But, I could not fasten this bra--it was too small/tight around. ComfortLover from Houston, TX USA

I never thought this bra would work. I bought it as a hope filled wish. I works! I have heavy old breasts that have nursed four children and been through...well, anyway. I get support, lift, and comfort!! I have not been able to wear a strapless or halter or one sholder anything since grade school. I'm so excited! Melissa from California

I've looked for a strapless for my size for a very long time, and was so pleased to finally find one. I've purchased 2! I love the bras, and have worn them all summer under my tanks, and sleeveless blouses. Can't say enought great things! Terri from Wenatchee, WA, USA

There was absolutely no support for me and the cup was too small. Definitely returning sadly.

Va Bien Response: We are sorry to hear that this bra did not work for you. Please note that this bra is sized under US standards whereby “H” follows “G”, “F”, and so forth. It is not a UK “H”, which follows “GG”, “G”, “FF”, “F”, etc. A UK “H” is much larger than a US “H”. Nicolecherie from Ca, USA

I have tried many size 34H bras and not all of them fit because the size and shapes of the cups differ according to the manufacturers. However, even with my husband trying to fasten it from behind for me I wasn't able to fasten it. This is the first, and only time this has happened. The other bras I ordered along with it all fastened easily. The band size was way too small. BRAZIE from ORLANDO, FLORIDA USA

After trying a few different styles I kept this one. It does a good job with lifting "the girls". I sit nicely because I got the correct size. I could see how this bra would not work if incorrectly sized (empty space @ top or spilling over top). For me I wish the back strap was a bit wider. Amanda

this was my first time ordering a strapless bra. I am one who honestly felt those of us over a DD need straps at ALL times. The bra served its purpose but I wish there was just a tad bit more space in the cups. Nice bra, good price. Emma

I could not wear this bra. It must have been a 28 and miss labeled. Had to return it.

Va Bien Response: This style runs small in the band in H and I cups. That said, there could be 1 of 2 things happening here: 1) the band could be too tight, in which case we would suggest the your try 34G, it will have similar-fitting cups to 32H and it will have a bit more space in the band. 2) the cups are too small, which will cause the bust to push the cups away, resulting in a too-tight fit, in which case we would suggest you try 32I, which will have the same band measurement as 32H but offer a bit more room in the cups so you can “drop in”.

Difficult to attach the straps and they ripped easily. Little support.

Va Bien Response: This is very surprising. I can only assume that you may have been too aggressive when attaching the straps and in doing so damaged the garment. Julia from Chicago

Beware. This bra runs small. I bought this bra in a 32H and the band did not stretch and it would not wrap around my rib area. I am a 32 inch- and this was super tight. I've sent it back and exchanging it for a 34I which I'm hoping will work better.

For years I have searched for a good fitting strapless bra and always settled because there were not many options for one with a small back and large/heavy cup. I cant explain how wonderful it is to wear a garment and feel comfort from the support of the bra. The boning that aligns the front of the bra give the support a heavier breast needs. I love it!!!! Finally big boobys can be sexy too. nquisitiv1 from Elkridge, MD

I purchased this garment for my 17 year old. I was having a hard time finding her a strapless bra for the prom. The bra is wonderful and I will be doing business with you again. It is hard to find size 34 or 36H bras. I really appreciate it! It is a life saver Orlanda from Villa Rica Ga USA

Suprisingly, great support for such heavy breasts. Just wish cups were a little deeper as molded cups cause spillage from top. Otherwise, really good fit. Sabrina from Norfolk,, Va

I can't rate this one. It ran really small. I couldn't even get it to close! I should've gotten a 34.

Vabien Response: In H and I cup sizes in this style runs a bit small in the band. If you do size up in the band in these cup sizes, we suggest also sizing down 1 cup. Alma from Downey, Ca

Yikes! So heavily padded it felt like I was putting on a bulletproof vest. Very uncomfortable; sending it back

VaBien Response: For customers used to wearing unlined, lightweight everyday bras, 1506 may certainly seem heavier – that’s because it’s structured to provide the necessary support to hold up a full bust properly without straps. Also FYI in order to produce the bra’s patented cups, there has to be at least a bit of thin foam layering to seal the “magic fingers” inside. Lynn from Lemon Grove, CA

I'm accustomed to paying a lot for my bras, so the price didn't phase me, but the quality standards do not meet the price. I tried my size (36I) even though there were reviews about a too tight band - alas, the reviews were right - I couldn't even come close to fastening it. I returned it and ordered a 38H, which was so big that I had to hook it on the tightest row, and it still didn't feel snug & started slipping down right away. I think there's a quality issue here - it sounds like if you can get one that fits, you're in luck....but it's a total cr*p shoot to get one that fits. I've been ordering my bras online for years and have never come across such inconsistent sizing - Va Bien is at the bottom of my list - I won't order them again.

VaBien Response: This is a mix up between the effects of cup and band sizing. At first glance, if a bra is too tight one would think a larger band would be the solution, right? Not always. Sometimes the bra can be too tight because there is not enough capacity in the cups. If the bust cannot drop into the cups completely and properly, the garment will stand away and be too tight, even if the band measurement is correct. You probably needed a 36J, which unfortunately is not available in this style. In general however, if the cups do fit perfectly and the band seems too tight, what your did is correct – size up in the band and down in the cup. It’s just in this specific case it seems that the cups were too small, which caused a tightness that cannot be relieved properly by sizing up in the band. (Note: the cups of this style do not generally fit small, we do not recommend sizing up unless done so in combination with a step down in band size.) Cheryl from St Augustine, FL

The construction of this bra is really great, it has good lift but I needed a bigger size. I am actually a 36H but have struggled to find a strapless that size that supports me. I've purchased 4 others from various places and this one fit the best. Amanda from Partlow, VA USA

I wear between a 34g and 34h depending on bra style. I chatted with someone re this bra and what size to order for my wedding, they recommended 34g so the cups don't show. I received it today and there is NO WAY I can get it closed!! The band size runs WAY small and now I'm out a bra for my wedding in three weeks! shan
