I am a 30G and have been looking for a long line to wear under my wedding gown. No one makes a 30G longline. I purchased a couple of other options before I found this one that were too high in the breast and armpit. The Va Bien is a great height on the breast and doesn't create the dreaded armpit boob. Because I bought this too big, it doesn't tack flat against my chest between the breast tissue and I will need to have it altered to be smaller around the back. The back is low enough for my dress. It is long enough to cover my stomach, creating a clean line instead of a muffin top like some of the shorter longlines do. The fabric is acceptable and it has a little bit of lace at the top to make it prettier. Overall, a good option. Meghan from Dallas, TX

Fits great. I love that it is so long - not only holds your breasts in place but also gives you great waistline, makes you feel taller and straighter. Despite all these positives I returned it - simply because I am looking for something cut a bit lower in the back. Eliza from Detroit

The quality is fabulous, but the size is too small. I normally wear between a 38C and a 40C bra. I ordered the 40C expecting to be able to use the tightest closure, but could not get the top three clasps closed on the loosest row! I am trying to decide whether or not to return it, or see if I lose enough weight to eventually wear it.

Va Bien Response: Thanks for the complement on our quality! When ordering a bustier, we suggest that you take your body shape into consideration. Remember that your traditional bra band size measures the circumference around your upper back, and that bra backs are usually stretchy. A bustier however runs all the way down to your hips, and is made of rigid fabric. Therefore if you have a pear-shaped silhouette, you may experience tightness in the garment when ordering your traditional bra size. In such cases it is best to size up in the band size to accommodate your silhouette, while also sizing down in the cup size (because if you size up in the band, the cup of that garment is graded larger as well – so you need to size down to make sure the cups will still fit).

The garment fits perfectly, the only problem is that the cups aren't molded quite as stiffly as I would like. There is a wrinkle where the boning ends in the cup which can be seen through the bodice of my dress, making my chest look just a little lumpy. I am going to try to iron it out.

Very supportive for a bigger chest. Holds my breasts up high and doesn't crease underneath or under my armpits like other had done. The boning that it has is very slimming and really smoothed out my lumpyness! Haydee from Spring, TX

This cup size actually fit! I had tried everywhere and, they either didn't have my size or they had my size but the cup size would run small. So I was so happy when I put this on and it actually fit. Tessa from Utah

This is the best longline bra I could find, and I tried on quite a few to wear under my wedding dress. It was very supportive for my size, but didn't push me up (which I don't need). The torso portion fit well and was pretty comfortable. The only reason why it's not a 5 star is that in my normal, everday size (38DD), there was space at the top of the cups. I had to exchange for a 38D, which still isn't a perfect fit in the cups, but like I said, best one I tried! AmandaR from Cincinnati, OH, USA

This long line bra was exactly what I was looking for, to wear under my wedding dress! I am a really hard fit, and it was perfect. The cups are actually FULL DD cups and offer good support, the band fits snug and comfortably!.. and it looks beautiful. So happy I found it! Beth from Lakeland, FL

Love this bra! I can't wait to wear it for my wedding in June. I originally bought a 36DD but it was too small - the 38DD fits perfectly and makes me look very va-va-voomy. I love the support it has in the cups - most bras like this will push up the breasts, but as a DD cup size I really don't need to look bigger, I just need support. This bra has all the support you could possibly want, plus the clear detachable straps will come in handy for extra comfort. Love it! Dawn from South Bend, IN

I ordered this to wear under my wedding dress, I did order my correct bra size, it fit wonderfully! I am a bit long in the torso so it didn't come down quit as far as the model shows but I still love it! I have tried on over 15 different styles and this one is by far the best and cheapest!!

Finally, the right bra to wear under my bridal gown! I have a very hard-to-find size and I am so thankful that the cups on this bra are finally, truly, large enough for my full cup size. I have a small waist and felt that the band size was a little too large; I have to wear the bra on the smallest set of hooks. Unfortunately, there's no "30DDD" size, but I may have the band altered to be a little more snug on my wedding day. Still, this is by far the best fitting, most flattering bra I've found, and I've looked far and wide. Overall, I'm so pleased I found HerRoom and this bra. It truly has a DD cup, as advertised :) The back works perfectly with my low-back gown, and the stays are invisible under my dress. J

This garment fit very well, although I think the cup size does run a bit large. I wore it under my wedding dress and it was comfortable and gave me the support I needed for over 6 hours with no need to adjust. Gabrielle

I did not like this item. I was uncomfortable the whole time it was on. It had no support, and the plastic in the bottom part dug into my body every time I sat and it was not because it was to small or to large. Good thing my dress fit me well and had enough support. It was a better strapless than others I have warn, but if looking to wear something for longer than 3 or 4 hours find something else.

HerRoom Response: Garments like this are always a challenge for women who are short in stature such as yourself. They are really designed for women who are 5'4" - 5'8". Shorter women should consider a longline that stops at the waist instead of going over the hips for more comfort. Also, 3/4 bras tend to be a better comfort fit for shorter women as well. amanda from jensen

Just got this in the mail and was so upset when it didnt fit me well because it looked comfortable and cute. I'm some where between a 40F and 40DDD so I ordered the 40DDD and it turned out to be too small, no all the hooks would close. Not sure what I'm going to do yet- Anna from NY

I wound up returning this, they just run too big on me and don't come in an A cup. My bra size is 38B. Rebecca from Wilmington, DE

Beautiful bustier! I bought this for my MOB dress. My normal bra size is 42D and I wear 18W dress. I had hoped that the 42D would fit my torso and hip area but sadly not. The bustier was just about 1/8" too small. It hooked but way too tight for a long wedding and reception so I wore my regular 42D black lace bra instead. I kept the bustier for at home experiences. My husband is pleased. Pamela from Hayward, CA, USA

Item was shipped quickly and fit very well. I did call customer service first because I go between 38 D and DD. I ordered the 38 D and was very happy with the fit!! Kim from wisconsin

It was a little tight thru the waist, but the bust was too loose and I'm typically a DDD. It provided no support. The sides were too short for me which also didn't help. I had read that someone else purchased the La Vien 1503 Ultra Lift Long Line instead. So I tried that one and it is much better. It has a little more room in the waist, gives much better lift and separation for those large chested girls, and the sides are a little higher. I think it's also better looking.

HerRoom Response: If you are apple or pear shaped, a garment like this with longline styling is not going to fit properly without alteration. Tara from Galveston, TX

Very slimming. I am in between cup sizes in this one. The DD is a little roomy, the D is too small. Would be better if I could use the clear straps, but my dress doesn't permit that. Good tummy control. Order up one band size from your normal bra, and down one cup size. I'm usually a 40DDD in a regular bra. Tiffany from Pennsylvania

The fit was fine except the bust was too big. I still wear and enjoy them. I may get a smaller size sometime. I had looked everywhere for this; so thank you! Lynn from Texas

I first ordered 36DDD and was slightly too loose to hold me up securely. Then I ordered the 34DDD and it smashed me down. So I switched to the model 1503 in my true size and it fit like a dream. This bra has good stomach control though.

HerRoom Response: If you go down a band size, you need to go up a cup size in order to maintain the same cup volume. Marilyn from Ocala, FL

I have purchased this item after reading the wonderful reviews. I must absolutely agree!! the bustier fits exactly. The C cup is perfect, the item is very comfortable, tight and supportive. I am full figured, and it is excellent in supporting the bust. The boning all around is tight enough and doesn't fold when you sit. I am absolutely satisfied and happy that I purchased it. Great buy!! Wendy from New York

This is the most comfortable item of this type that I have ever worn. I'm wearing it under my wedding gown and it is very smoothing. A great purchase. Although the cup size is just a bit large, it was not worth exchanging it. Elizabeth from Laramie, WY

I think the band size could be tighter, so I am returning the 36DDD for a 34DDD which I think will give me the support that I need. The customer service people are very friendly and helpful. Bra is sturdy and well constructed. Marilyn from Ocala, FL

I'm pretty consistently a 40D, so I thought I was being smart when I ordered the item in a 40D and 42C, just in case. In the goddess longline, a 42C was no problem. However, with this bra it was a huge hassel to get it buttoned up. I think a front snap system may have been easier, since I was able to fasten it from the front. Unfortunately, I don't have boobs on my shoulderblades! It was also too short on me, coming down just past my belly button, not down my hips as in the picture shown. That was kind of dissapointing. I would try the next size up, but Va Bien goes no higher! Curse you! Us larger ladies need shapewear too! Shoshanna from Seattle
