I am normally a 38 DDD, but needed a 40DD. This bustier was very comfortable and I wore it for over 9 hours and I did not have to pull or twist any portion of the bustier because of discomfort. I have since worn this bustier and the comfort level remains the same. Gail from Tampa/FL/USA

I got this item to wear under my wedding dress and I love it! As I am getting married in Southern California where it is much warmer than New York, I love the breathable lace panels. I am quite tall (six feet) and this corset reaches to a comfortable place on my hips instead of being to short and stabbing me in the stomach. Its not as long as on the model- but hey- it works!

Fits and looks amazing! The pictures don't give it justice; it is a beautiful corset! It fits true to the size I am. I wear a size 34 C in a bra and I carefully measured myself twice using the method explained on the site and I measured a 34 C with them as well. The fit could not be better! So beautiful and so happy I bought it! Definitely recommend this one :) Connie from Warrenville, Illinois USA

I give it 2 stars because this was a beautiful item. Unfortunately, that was all I liked about it. The fit was awkward. It buckled in the cups under my breasts and was lose at the hips, even with the back hooked a far as it would go. I felt like if I lifted my arms over my head I was going to fall out. There was no feeling of support. I bought this to wear under my strapless wedding dress and it is in the mail on the way back a we speak.

Va Bien Response: It sounds like this customer needed a 32 – unfortunately Va Bien does not offer 32B in this bustier. Thanks for the complement on the aesthetics. Allison from Westminster, MD USA

I bought this bra and the Va Bien 7474 to see which would work better under my wedding dress. Although this bra is very pretty, it didn't fit quite right. I ordered the size I usually order in bras, and even on the tightest setting the bra still wasn't as tight as I wanted it to be and didn't feel quite secure enough. Also, the cups on this bra were a little big on me and looked kind of pointy. I will be returning this one and keeping the 7474. Nikki from Minnesota

I am very tall (6' 1/2") so the length of this bustier was great for me. I can wear either a 34C or a 36B and this 36B fit very well up top, although it gave (very) slight spillage over the upper sides. Not the bra's fault, I am 52 and my tissue has lost its firmness. What did not work for me so well was the fit at the bottom. It gathered in the lower back and also was a bit loose in the front at the very bottom. It might be better for someone woth more flare to the hips. My measurements are: above bust 33", bust 36", below bust 30", waist 30" hips 38". Over all it is comfortable, pretty, true to size, and comfortable to sit in. I would definitely recommend trying it. The Carnival 386 front closing one worked better for me. Peg

This fit perfectly! I wear a 36DD bra but ordered two sizes and returned one. So it runs a little large since I kept the 34DD but fits great! Susan

Beautiful bra, however, the fit was way off. I even took the time to measure before I ordered, but it was still about 2-3 sizes too small and wouldn't clasp, and the cup size was too big. I ordered the size I always wear in bras and measured myself to be.

Va Bien Response: Often times firm control bustiers, especially those with rigid satin paneling, call for a size up in the band and down in the cup. This most applies to pear shaped bodies. Ashley from Texas

I ordered this bustier for my daughter's upcoming wedding to go with my dress which is essentially strapless (just thin spaghetti straps). The dress is columnar and I wanted a smooth line. And I wanted to look as good as possible for the pictures. I was hesitant to buy online as I've never even tried on a bustier before. But I used the provided manufacturer's size chart and measured according to the directions on HerRoom's site. I'm absolutely delighted with the way this bra fits, feels and makes me look. The long line smooths and accents not just my waist, but my whole back and hip area, too. The underwire and cups are perfectly placed and lift and hold just right. The bra is well made and really beautiful. I would wear it every day if I could put it on by myself! I look and feel fantastic in it, and it makes my dress fall perfectly over my body. Can't wait for the previously dreaded pics! And HerRoom's service was so incredible! The item arrived in less time than anticipated and it was wrapped in pretty lilac tissue. It's the little things that make your heart happy! This experience was one of the best shopping experiences of my life, and I plan on ordering all my bras from HerRoom now. Best selection, best service! Karen from Vancouver, WA USA

I am a ballroom competitor and needed a great fitting bra for my new ballroom dress. This is perfect. I sized down to get the fit I wanted. Great bra. I needed a lot of support and found it in this garment. rosemarie from va beach, va.

I normally wear a 36D in bras and I purchased both the 38C and the 36D to try. The 36D was very snug, which I guess might translate into lots of compression, but it was borderline uncomfortable. Since it's my wedding and I want to enjoy myself, I opted for the 38C. It's a beautiful garment, and I'm excited to wear it! ACW from Massachusetts

I LOVE THIS BRA!!! I got it to go under my spaghetti strap "mother of the bride" dress. It fits true to size, and I love the beauty, comfort and firm control. It is longer than many bustiers I tried, but not too long, and the length provides even better figure enhancement and control. LOVE the smooth lines it provides under my dress. It's beautifully made, too. Wonderful! Kacy from Vancouver, Wa USA

This is a very comfortable fit which holds the girls very well! The only problem I had was that it showed a tiny bit out of the top of my wedding dress, so I had to order another style. It is perfect for some of my other dresses though, and much better for my shape than regular strapless bras. I did have to go down one size. I normally wear a 36D. Lindsay from New Orleans, LA

It was too big so I exchanged it for the same style. The cup size is perfect though! It holds the girls very well, and it makes me feel confident! Lindsay from New Orleans, LA

This bustier was pretty and comfortable, but was a little too long in the torso for my petite, short-waisted frame. Moreover, it didn't offer as much support for my large bust as I was hoping. I also didn't like where the low back hit on my back. I returned it since it didn't work for me.

Vabien Response: Petites will do better with a long line strapless bra such as Vabien 506. The back cannot be too low or the front will flip forward with larger bust sizes (for bustiers). Strapless bras are wrapped around high, so a good strapless with enough support in the cups such as Vabien 1506 can run very high in size. It works great! Emily from USA

I ordered this true to my size (36DD) with plans to wear it under my wedding dress. The bodice fit wonderfully and the lace is very pretty. Also, it held the girls in and my first thought was, "Yes, I can get crazy on the dance floor!" But as I continued to look at it, I realized that with the stitching on the cups, my breasts looked very pointy and pointed out towards my arms versus in like a cleavage normally would do. There's so much I like about this bustier but I can't live with a pointy silhouette...I have to send it back.

HerRoom Response: We appreciate your feedback. This bustier has transversal seams for a rounded look. If you think you are looking pointy, this is usually a sign that the cups are a little too big. Consider going down a cup size. TC from Ohio

Size: 36D

I think the item was beautiful but I needed to return it because it was too small. I wear a 36D and it was 4 inches too small. I actually measured it and it was 32 inches. I called and got one of the managers to measure another one (since I thought it might have been tagged wrong) and sure enough it measured at 32 inches. I highly suggest that Her Room adds that somewhere on their website to avoid this situation again. They told me I should go up 2 sizes so I had to order a 40C.

HerRoom Response: As and FYI, measuring a garment does not tell you if it is running small or large. The stretch of a garment is factored in. So, the fact that it measured 32" could mean the garment was to be stretched 4".

VaBien Response: Thanks for your kind words about the garment’s look. Regarding the measurement, it was likely not being measured along the correct line. Regarding the fit, we often suggest – especially to ladies with a pear shape – to size up in the band and down in the cup from their typical bra size. With this body type the measurement may apply around the upper-middle back, where a traditional bra sits, but not necessarily further down on the torso. Jamie from Ellicott City, Maryland, USA

Absolutely beautiful. I bought this low back bustier to wear under my wedding dress in October. I bought my normal band and cup size. Band size fits, but the cups are probably too big, as I had lost weight and my chest is always the first to go. The cup size probably also plays a part in the fact that I don't have much support when it comes to holding the girls up. Nonetheless, this is a great bra overall! Heidi from Pittsburgh, PA USA

Pretty but flimsy. Not made to hold everything in and up.

Va Bien Response: 523 is a well-constructed garment that is indeed effective if wearing the correct size. This case sounds like there was a sizing problem. We would need to know what exactly was wrong with the fit to provide you with suggestions on what the proper size to buy would be. Michelle from Lancaster, OH

I needed a strapless option for a wedding gown that was cut slightly low in the back. This garment has a good fit and gives a nice shape. I'm a little on the short-waisted side and after trying nearly all options I decided this was the best one for my figure. I ordered my normal bra size and the fit was perfect. The only negative is that the front boning buckles outward slightly when you bend or sit, that may be because I'm short-waisted, although I returned another option that was designed for petites and had the same problem, along with back bulge. Herroom service is great! Lee from New Orleans, LA

I really like this corset. I am using it under my wedding dress. I was very pleased that they had my correct size, as it has been very frustrating trying to find something that fits perfectly for my wedding! It came in a timely manner and was very reasonably priced for the quality of the garment. Also, it's very sexy! I won't have to worry about my Husband seeing me in Spanx or a girdle on our wedding night! Lola from Houston,TX,USA
