I love this bra! It worked perfectly under the Bride's Maid dress that I ordered it to go with. It gives good support and the ribbing was not visible at all under the dress. The size was right on for me. I am a 36C and ordered accordingly despite the advice I had seen in reviews on the site. I can't wait to wear it with some of my other dresses that require a strapless bra. It is actually even a little sexier than I had pictured. My husband enjoyed it also! Evening from Covina CA USA

The look and support of this bra is great, but for me the band sizing was way off. I've purchased similar bras recently and even with the larger band size in this bra it is way too tight. I'm sending it back asap Jessica from Oregon

After searching half of the department stores in San Antonio, and even venturing into the dreaded Victoria's Secret shops and practically being expelled from the Cirque and other "larger woman's" shops, this bustier finally did the trick by coming in MY size and, as a result, fitting beautifully. This is for my wedding next August and I wish I could wear around on a daily basis. Low enough for my strapless dress, but perfect for holding its shape when bounced up and down, sat in, etc. etc. (I've worn it through a couple of practice sessions.) Definitely causes a BIT of "back fat," but every bustier / merry window I've tried on does the same. Barely noticeable and honestly fits wonderfully. Long enough to hit the panty line on a 5'10" woman. MaryAshley from Hunt, TX, USA

Close to perfect. I'm a 32DDD with a small frame. The girls were lifted BEAUTIFULLY--very sexy. The only slight downfall is the boning right under the bust is a little uncomfortable when you sit down. I'm so happy to have found something that provides such great lift. mary from hanford/ca/usa

I LOVE this bra! It is exactly what I was looking for to wear on my wedding day. I followed the advice of other people who had bought this, and ordered one cup size down from my regular size. It fits perfectly! I like that it came with clear straps and removable garters - makes this garment very versatile! Brandy from Converse, TX

Product is great, but I ordered the wrong size. I wore it and it worked, When ordering try your present bra size. Like product, but shipping took longer than I had expected. Carol from Greenville NC

This bra fits really well and gives a lot of lift. I picked my normal size and that was just right. I bought it for my wedding, and it doesn't show through the dress or stick out from the top like many others. It does poke in a little bit beneath both breasts, but at least I won't be tugging it up all night! Meghan from Ohio

Do you know how hard it is to find a DDD size bustier, that is strapless and low back? Let me tell you it is extremely hard! I have been looking all over for these for my wedding dress. I found this site and was extatic! Most sites that I looked up said plus size, but they only went up to a DD, that's not plus size to me! Let me tell you, this bra is awesome. It hugs and tucks my little bit extra that I have since I do have a child, but gives me a really nice shape. And wow, does it have enough room for the girls up stairs. I love this bra and would recommend it to everyone. However, if you do have a really low back dress this bra isn't for you, since it comes to about mid-back. DDD and Me from Las Vegas, NV

I didn't realize when ordering that if you increase your band size to fit a bustier, you may need to decrease your cup size. I usually wear a 38DD in bras but have a very broad back and shoulders so needed to increase band size by quite a bit. Still wasn't quite enough and made the cups fit strange. But even so I think this garment would have had a slightly awkward/uncomfortable fit regardless of size accuracy. I exchanged mine for a different brand in 44D and the new one fits beautifully.

This bustier is awesome! I needed something to wear under a strapless bridesmaid dress, and at a 38D, I needed some definite support! It is longer than most, which makes the break between my bustier and my shapewear panties undetectable. The back is cut a little low, which encourages a little muffin top for me. I'm usually a 38D, but after reading reviews and sizing chart, I went with a 40C...perfect. Jen from Willows, CA

I got the bra and tried it on. It fit like a medieval torture device. The cups were enormous and the waist felt like it was attempting to crack my ribs. Unhappy Bride from Scottsville VA

i am normally a 38B, so i ordered a 38B. i love the way it fit on the midsection, really slimmed out the belly area so it will look great under a dress i have to wear in a wedding, but the cups were way too big. i will have to get "chicken cutlets" to boost me in that area, but overall i am pretty satisfied with the fit, other than in the cup size. vikki from michigan

I gave this a three star for a few reasons. Although, I will be keeping the bra due to a time crunch and it fits the bill it is not the bra I would have kept had I more time to shop around. The long line portion of it is very good quality and supportive. It's the cup size that is strange. It's big and small all in the same breath. I normally wear a 38DD but ordered the size recommended after I measured myself. I also ordered the bigger size since most reviews said this bra was on the smaller side. So, ordering this bra on-line just supports my thought that a bra of this nature needs to be tried on in the store but since I had little time it works. Jul from PA

My other bras are size 34 DD or DD or 36 D. This 34 was way too large in the band. amy from portland,oregon,usa

I originally ordered a 36DD (my size) and the waist was a little loose. I want it to be supportive so I did my one return and got a 34DDD to keep the same cup size. It was HUGE! Now I'm stuck with this thing, and very upset about it. I'll have to see if the seamstress can do something about it. Lindsay from Toledo, OH

I was really worried about buying a bustier online, without trying it on first; especially since it's for my wedding! I'm very long waisted and the bustier I bought prior to this one just would NOT work. This bustier got such rave reviews from everyone I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did! It fits beautifully, it was packaged beautifully; I'm thrilled with my purchase! Sheila from Arkansas

I'm wearing this with my wedding gown. I tried several similar things, but this one provided by far the most firm shaping without being painful. I wish the back were a little lower - if the back of your dress is low, this may not work. I'm having my seamstress add snaps so it will attach on the back to my gown so it won't show as I move around. It's smooth and provides great support. Ashley from IL

This bustier is the first one I've tried that actually came close to delivering what they promised! My wedding is only a few weeks away and I've tried so many bustier's I cannot count them anymore. Though not quite big enough for my breasts, it fits everywhere else *perfectly*!!! I have a semi-low back corset-top wedding dress and needed a strapless bra to keep me from falling out of the top of the dress. This has a low enough front and back that it doesn't poke out the top of the dress. Thank you for helping me *FINALLY* getting what I needed. I should have come here first. Now that I know, I will be coming here first, every time. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! Jimi from Kentucky

The bustier was very well fitted. First I ordered a bigger size, but had to reorder a smaller one . Second one fit great. I made sure I stayed with the same brand. Thanks! I will order again. Joni from WI - USA

I ordered 6 different corsets online to try under my wedding dress. This was the one out of 2 that actually delivered what it promised. Great support, quality fabric and construction, and a good price. The reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because although it is the one that fit the best, it was also the most plain. It could be a little more decorative and sexy looking because it's almost impossible to find a sexy, decorative corset in a 40DD. Jordan from Stoughton, MA

Although the quality and design are great, the size was not what I expected. I have tried on this size in many other models/brands and it fits fine. This 40C was smaller than most. I had to return it for another size. They seem to run about 1 size small. Other than that, this does exactly what it promises! Liz from San Francisco, CA

This is a nice bra, but does not work for my halter style wedding dress because the center between the cups show. May also want to be careful about the center boning that comes down the front. It showed thru on my gown. I will use this bra with a strapless bridesmaid dress. Diana from Virginia

It is a beautiful garment, but it was too small, even though the measurement under my bustline is 42.

HerRoom Response: If you have an under-bust measurement of 42, you need to add 4" to get your correct band size. Therefore, you would be a band size 46.

I purchased this bra to wear underneath my wedding gown. I was very pleased with the fit of the cups and torso. The fabric is pretty comfortable too. It is a great strapless bra for curvy girls with a larger chest...I feel secure wearing it, and I will probably wear it under other strapless shirts and dresses. Ashley from Auburn, AL, USA

I have to agree with the reviewer who said it did not fit at all, except in the bust. I, too, was very disappointed. Herroom's response describing the difference between "full figure" and "plus-size" does not explain the poor fit. I know I am plus-sized and carefully chose the filters to apply to my search so that I would be given a choice of garments that are designed for plus-sized women. I began my search first choosing the Plus Size tab, then selecting the quick link for "plus-size by size", then selecting my bra size. If this is not a plus-sized garment it should not have appeared using these filters. In fact, I ordered several longline strapless garments resulting from that search and although they all fit wonderfully in the bust, not one of them would close around my middle.

HerRoom Response:Longline bras are always a challenge for plus size women. The manufacturer selects a bust size, then determines what the most common waist size will be and makes the garment accordingly. If your waist is considerably large, there really is no long line bra on the market that accomodates you. One solution would be to wear a bra and a piece of shapewear.

I am not apple shaped, I am square shaped. My middle is not larger than my bust or hips, it is narrower by 10 inches. I have measured myself carefully several times using the instructions on this website and looking in the mirror to be sure the tape was straight. Regular bras I've ordered from this site in the same size fit me well. I will continue my search for a long line strapless I can wear as Mother of the Bride, but I no longer hold much hope of finding something that fits and supports my bust properly and also closes around my middle.

It is a well-made item, very supportive, and a good fit in the bust, but not long enough for my torso. It barely made it down to my waist, let alone my hips. My sister loved it, however, so I let her keep it. Stacy from Michigan, USA
