I am glad I found this body suit because It was really hard to find minimizer in DD. Barbara from washington, dc

The bra on this one piece fits absolutely wonderful however, the rest of it is just way too long. After the bra, the rest is uncomfortable and even though I only weigh about 112 this one piece is way too tight and very very uncomfortable. I only wish I could get this same bra by it's self.

This is good shapewear. However, the torso is pretty long even when it's adjusted. I first ordered a larger size based on their suggested sizing and had to return it because I also sized up on the cup size. I reordered in my actual cup size but did leave the larger body size and it fits much better. I think it would be much better if it was made without underwire, I personally don't care for underwire bras.

Va Bien Response: Thank you, we are glad you like the bodysuit. As you noticed, Va Bien bodysuits tend to run long in the stride. Regarding the underwire, we do make a couple of soft cup (no underwire) bodysuits that you might like, although they do not have molded cups.

I have worn a good number of one pieces but this is one of the best. It was exactly the right size for my height (5'7") and figure (closer to full than average). Wore it under a bridesmaid dress and it smoothed me out nicely. Worth the money! K from New Hope, PA

I have worn this item for about 6 to 7 years, and it has been modifited or poorly made. Most women who are top heavy want something to minimize their breast not make them look larger. I returned the item because the cups are pointed not round like the older version, and they made my breast look even larger. There are bra's out there to minimize, but not full one piece body briefs.

Va Bien Response: So sorry to hear about your experience. No change has been made in the manufacturing process of this style since it was designed years ago. Most customers find that the cups do indeed minimize the bust. Regina from Cleveland

Love this bodysuit, its does a great job, washes great is very supportive through the torso and breast area I will be purchasing this item again. HerRoom is a great company with excellent service. I had my item within a few days. Robyn

I have ordered this same item for the second time and am disappointed with the quality. The first time I washed both of the garments the underwire poked through and the trim around the top of the cups came un sewn. I had to hand sew them back together. I expected the item to be of better quality after paying $50 for it. Melissa from Turtletown, TN USA

One of the 3 pcs I purchased has a strap that is unraveling and coming apart after one wash - the other 2 are fine and offer very good support with comfort.

Vabien Response: Thank you for your feedback, this is highly unusual, we rarely hear of this problem. M from Southborough, MA, USA

It would be nice if they would make it in short , medium and tall lengths. If you are 5'3" or under the torso hangs. There are short people out there that need shapewear as well as those that are 5'4" and over. Companies seem to forget about us petite ladies. Ava from Williamsburg, VA

I wish my body was longer, but since I'll probably be getting a breast reduction in the near future, I'll be able to go back to 36 or 34 D cup which would shorten the length of any new body suits I would purchase. But, for now I am happy with the suits I've just purchased and have been wearing them with no problems. Theresa from Culver City, CA

This shaper fits well. I like the one piece feel and full support bra. This is better than others because it gives a full support bra; the body material is firm but not suffocating; and it is smooth and simple doesn't have lace and decoration. Jennifer from Peoria, Illinois

Fit across my back (36), but much too long in the torso. Does not provide the necessary support for my breast and the sides are too low.

HerRoom Response: This bodysuit is not designed for women who are shorter than 5'4". Ritann from Easton, PA

I love the fit and control of the Va Bien Minimizer. My issue with it, is the underwire coming out. On some, I've only worn it 2-4 times when the underwire just pokes through. Replacing the garment gets really costly. Barbara from Olathe, KS / USA

The bodysuit fit well and was comfortable. I would have liked a little more waist compression but it did smooth me out. The suit took 1/2" off my bust measurement, not much but being only a C cup I just wanted a smooth bra with no push up effect for blouses. Andrea from VA Beach, VA, USA

Great but the cups are do not fit quite right. However, overall a great garment for those times I want a little more support. Didn't realize I was getting a minimizer but it works. Natalie from Valparaiso

I won't wear the Va Bien 701 again!! I have a long torso and it still was too long for me. The underwire went down to my midriff and the crotch area when snapped rubbed between my upper thighs. Unfortunately it seemed to fit ok when I first tried it on but by the end of the evening I was soooo happppy to take it off. Glenda from Browns Valley, MN, USA

I bought this bodysuit mostly because of the minimizer style in the bra. And it fits that way great. But I would have liked a lot more control in the tummy area. Most girls with large busts have tummy issues also. JR from Canton, Ohio USA

I love the Va Bien 701 Minimizer Body Suit. It is the best for comfort and fit that I have ever purchased (and I have tried many other brands). I like the way it fits up higher on the back and really keeps its shape after much wear. Initially I had trouble with the plastic loops on the straps breaking. Then, I decided to wash them like other lingerie. I put them in a net lingerie bag, wash on gentle and hang to dry. This works out wonderfully and they come out looking like new! I don't go into the big department stores looking and trying new undergarments any longer. I simply order from HerRoom in the comfort of my own home. I have never been displeased. Customer Service is A+. Linda from Seattle/WA/USA

I really like the Va Bien Minimizer. It is comfortable and it provides optimal support. My only issue with it, is that the underwire sometimes breaks through. I have had this happen about 2-3 times with relatively new garments. As long as the underwire stays in it's great!

HerRoom Response: When your underwires keep poking out of your bra, there are generally 2 reasons: First, you are washing your bras in hot water which shrinks the casing around the underwire. Second, you might have too large a band size. The friction from your band moving around your body will eventually cause the wire to pop through. Ann from Olathe, KS USA
