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.

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
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!

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
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".
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.

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.
