Pointed, ick! I want a minimizer that separates and makes me look rounded. Non stretch straps, regular back (not racerback), three hooks. They've stopped making my Bali minimizer and I've ordered several other styles now (price range upper $30's to mid $60's without success) and all give me a pointed look. I weigh 123, am 5'2" and wear a 32DD, but I have heavy breasts and need super under bust support. HELP anyone?

VaBien Response:This fall Va Bien is coming out with a bra in the frame of style #601 that will give a more rounded look. While style #601 is not as “pointed” as some other minimizers out there. Many people, in fact, love the shape that style #601 gives them, but this new bra will be more round. Lea from Overland Park, KS USA

This bra is just okay. Runs small. I had to switch to a DDD. Straps are a little too wide set for me. I did like it a bit better the second time I wore it. Maybe it will grow on me. Nancy

No verdict yet. I am awaiting a new size. The 32DDD was supposed to take the place of my normal size of 34DD that fits in the cup, but is a bit loose around. The cup size was way too small and it was a bit tight around. Trying the 34 DDD. I will let you know how it goes. Nancy

Gives great shape but is not very comfortable. Not an everyday bra for me. Karen from Napa

This was not a good fit and did not have the molded cups, as I thought it would. I can sometimes wear a 36D, but the DD was still too small.

Vabien Response:This style has molded cups. It is a minimizer bra, so the cups are going to run smaller than average, as the purpose of this bra is to flatten the bust. This is not a full figure bra and it is possible that you are not wearing your true bra size. If you aren't looking to be minimized this is not the best bra for you. We would recommend getting measured to find out what your correct bra size is and we think you will be happier. Pam from Chapel Hill, NC USA

These were purchased for my 13-year-old daughter, who doesn't feel it is a blessing to be as curvy as she is. (At 18, she may feel differently!) We become frustrated by department stores that sell push-up and padded styles...and your minimizer are perfect for her. They fit perfectly too. Now she has a sleeker silhouette all over :) TK from Lapeer, MI USA

Like it, it's not lined like I thought it would be, but I will definitely wear it out. Would like it to be lined. Lynne from Wells, ME - USA

I love the simplicity of this bra and was really hoping it would work because of the great price. However, the fit was very strange on me and did not minimize. I will stick with Wacoal, instead. beth from SC

I LOVE this bra! It is the nicest and most comfortable fit I ever had. The straps are wide enough to prevent irritation. The shape is excellent and it provides great support. I may never use another brand. Thank you! Armida from Sarasota, FL

First of all, I don't know how I ever bought bras before HerRoom! This site has SO many styles, and they're organized so sensibly, it's easy to zero in on just what you need. Compare this to a store where you're limited to whatever small selection of lines/styles they happen to carry, and good luck finding your size in the style you want! I want a minimizer and they're not so easy to find a variety of styles (and in my size!) in the stores. The Va Bien 601 is wonderful. Be warned: when I first tried it on I was shocked by the silhouette it gave me; at first it seemed too pointy and "cone bra" looking to me. In retrospect I realize it's because my previous bras made me sit much lower, which actually made me look bigger and made my whole body look wider because of the way clothes hung on me. The "perkier" fit of this Va Bien bra makes all my clothes fit better and makes me look slimmer and taller. It took a little getting used to, but the silhouette is very youthful and flattering. The comfort is unparalleled. The unlined cups are non stretchy and very supportive, and the style is very simple and smooth so it works great under most any outfit. I am ordering more of this style now; it is my new everyday bra. Amy from Napa, CA USA

Thanks to Lauren in NY for your review. I also wore the Bali butterfly minimizer & couldn't find another one as good. This is pretty close and I probably wouldn't have bought it if you didn't mention the Bali. I'm very happy with this bra and just purchased the second color. Lisa from FL

I am VERY picky when it comes to minimizer. I will spend any amount of $ on a bra that will actually minimize and help me appear more slender. This bra totally works! It is much less $$ than most minimizer I've owned. I have not been so pleased with a bra since they discontinued the Bali butterfly minimizer. And the no stretch material is the ONLY way to go for big busted girls who want true support. LAuren from NY

I bought three different minimizer's before going on vacation, so had to deal with them all. Of the three, this one was the smallest (all ordered in the same size), perhaps because it's not stretchy at all. It feels a little retro, but it really does hold the girls in place and gives a nice shape. It's very smooth and wears nicely under t-shirts, and the straps are wider, which is comfortable, but no so wide that they look heavy-duty. I'll continue wearing the one I have, but will probably not order another. Ali from NJ

How refreshing in this day and age that a product does what the manufacturer says it will do. Great fit and does what it should as usual with all Va Bien products. They are the best. Georgette from Bayonne, NJ USA
