This is the most comfortable bra I've found in a long time. It's important to get the fit right, because if you don't the wires can poke underarms and stick out between your breasts. But with the right fit, this is a really good bra for women who need a lot of support. Mary from Havana, FL

Bra gaps in center of breasts which appears as a 3rd breast. Not appealing!

Pretty and substantial fabric...no stretch, no show thru in cups. Nice rounded shape,helped by seams. Straps are wide & padded. This is a comfortable, attractive "Go to " bra. I will be ordering more. I withheld 1 star because wire under arm is too long to allow me to tighten straps that last 3/4 inch. Frannie from Chicago,IL

When I received my order, I looked at it in the plastic, and discovered it was way too big. It was supposed to be white, but it was an ivory color. I am looking for a white bra, and many of the items did not have my size. Edith from USA

I am short-waisted and have a tummy so thought this bandless option would be a comfortable fit. Not! Cups are huge for its size and the bra is really difficult to get into because straps are short. Cups offer no separation. The overall fit was poor and not flattering Carole from New Jersey, USA

I own 6 Aviana Floral Underwires. I have thrown out all my other bras. They're just like Bali's Satin Tracings, but in bigger sizes. Super supportive, and cute! This bra keeps the girls strapped in, and pointed in the right direction, comfortably. I only wish they came in more colors! Julie from Vermont

This si not a new bra style for me. I bought one about 4 years ago locally. However, I rarely wore it. I don't know why. As I was going tahrough my draw to get rid of old bra, I came across this one. I tried it on. Wore it for a couple of days. Then decided to buy two more. The bra is very comfortable. Perfect uplift with out looking extremely big given my size. CJ from Fort Lauderdale, FL

this is the second one that I have bought. It would be the perfect bra if the elastic on the sides were stronger.When you get to my age you need it to keep the back from riding up.For a young person it would be perfect because they don't need the major lift. Rose from South Pittsburg/TN/USA

This item was very cheaply made! The cup seam has puckers all across the middle of the cup...not worth the price...cups run large...not correct sizing....VERY disappointed.

Aviana Response:We are making these bras with USA manufactured fabrics in a USA owned plant in Costa Rica. We have very tight controls over every component of our bras. I assure you, they are not cheaply made. Our bras are strong and supportive all the way to 56 bands and M cups. The seam will absolutely not pucker in a size that fits you correctly. I would agree that most USA bra manufacturers size their cups much smaller than the US standard sizing to which AVIANA adheres. I highly recommend you try another size – and even try one of our amazingly supportive softcups. If you try a size that fits you will be amazed by how great it looks and feels.

This bra doesn't support well for large heavy breasts. I originally ordered a 38F, but it was too loose. Exchanged it for a 36F and it still wasn't as fitted as a bra should be. Laurie from Indiana USA

I have been wearing Panache 40GG, but was looking for a less stiff bra. The Aviana 2453 size 40 band was too loose, and the H cup was too small (the wires were about 3" from my chest at the top. I was going to exchange it for a 38J but it doesn't come in that size. I think in the right size it would have been a fantastic bra. The fabric wasn't scratchy, the underwire was padded, and the entire bra was much less stiff than Panache. Back to the drawing board for me.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your comment. We have forwarded it on to Aviana.

Aviana Response: Yes Kelly! It is a great bra and I wish we made higher cup sizes in the very soft and comfortable, but very supportive, 2453. I bet we would earn 5 out of 5 stars if the size was right! We do make it's sister soft cup 2353 in 38J (almost identical except no wire), and believe me, with wide foam slings inside, these are very supportive cups. Most women think support comes from the underwire - it doesn't. Support comes from the band, and the underwire helps provide that nice rounded, separated shape we want. Our softcup bras, 2353 included, do a great job achieving this same look without the hassle of the wire. Everbody's going wireless - try it! C Webb Aviana Kelly from Aliso Viejo/CA/USA

This bra gives great support and makes my bust line look years younger. I have been wearing Elitla and Playtex 18hr Soft Cup Bras prior to trying this Aviana Underwire Bra. The underwire cups give great support and I don't feel I am wearing a "old ladies bra" as with my other bras. This bra looks fantastic under t shirts, dresses and blouses. Straps are great, do not slip and are comfortable all day. I normally wear a G Cup but need a H to have the underwire cups fit correctly. The five hook back took a few days to get used to but now I appreciate the support and fit the extra wide back offers. I will order additional Aviana Underwire Bras in the future. Mary from Mass

This bra does not lie flat against the skin between the breasts cups. Fabric was not comfortable.

HerRoom Response:When a bra does not lie flat in the center, this is a sure sign your cup size is not large enough.

Aviana Response: Generally speaking, when the bra doesn't lie flat between the cups, it is the wrong size. The most common reason is that the cup is too small. Since this bra doesn't go above H cup, it may not be the bra for you. You can try the 44H, just to get a larger cup size, but you may notice the bra not being as supportive since the weight in front will cause the band to ride up in the back. I suggest trying the Aviana 2353 in a 40J, 40K, or 42I. Once all the breast tissue fits in the cup, the band will not pull away from the chest. C Webb, Aviana. Sue from Weatherford/Texas/USA

I love this bra! This is the first Aviana bra I have ever bought. It is very comfortable. The center wire lays flat against my chest, and the cups are very supportive. It feels good and looks very nice under blouses or knit tops, no "poke up" with the wires in the center as some bras do. I ordered the lighter color and a black one, and as someone else said, the black fits slightly differently than the light one does. They are both comfortable and look nice, but the black looks slighly more pointed, the cream one slightly more rounded. I will definitely buy Avianas again. Very glad to find this maker; the bras are of excellent quality. Gloria from Alexandria

I liked the full coverage and support. The middle wire does rest flat against my chest making the cup size feel right, except that that there was some wrinkling at the seems in front. If I go to a smaller cup size, I am afraid the middle wire won't lay flat against my chest. I don't think the Aviana bra is right for me.

HerRoom Response: You might be right that the style is not suited for you, but we suggest you try the smaller cup size. Annie from Oxnard, CA USA

In trying this style bra - the up-and-out projection look - I tried this Aviana. As another reviewer said, although I filled the cup just fine, there is a puckering along the seem at the front. My guess is that I am just a bit too rounded for this more pointy shaped cup. In fact, I had a bit of the top breast tissue flowing over the top of the cup, meaning I could have used one cup size larger, yet I already had problems filling the tip in the smaller one. It seems very specific to a certain breast shape...which is not mine.
It has great lift; the sides and bottom of the breast do not sag. It makes you look thinner in that regard. For me, because I have a wide breast bone (am 5'9" and broad shouldered), there was not as much differentiation between the cups as I need - I just looked and it's very narrow between the two cups.
The Wacoal Romantic Inspiration was a better compromise for me in this style. It still has the support and projection, but it slightly more rounded, better fitting my breast shape. It also has a slightly wider spacing between the two cups. Anabel from Chicago, IL, USA

I like it very much, has full coverage, supports pretty well. I just wish the mesh around the back were stronger. It is too soft/weak and gives too much. The straps on this one stay on my narrow shoulders better. I am always hoping for a perfect one but that I might never find that : ) AW from CT

This is a well constructed bra, with good support and comfort. I found it took a little while to get used to the 5 eye closure (with H cup) but I believe it adds to the support. I had ordered 2 of these bras, one in cream the other in black. They fit a little differently, the black one a little smaller, but very acceptable. Patricia from Port Hardy, B.C. Canada

Forever had bra problems! Always wore 38-40D-DD-DDD. Was fitted in an Aviana36H style 2453. The fit was very good. I Like the Bra. The only problem is the elastic around loses it's strength to soon, and I just had one that the wire broke through. Is there one I should try that's similar in fit? In the mean time I will order another one of this style to tide me over.

I can't believe this bra was priced at $46. There was absolutely no give in the straps. There should be a little bit of give for flexibility of movement. For $10 less, I purchased a beautiful underwire Goddess that was much more comfortable.

Aviana Response: Rigid straps are a feature of this bra that gives it stabilization and structure. This bra is not designed to allow much “movement” as most of our customers are looking for support. There are many cheaper bras if loose, flexible comfort, not comfortable support, is the goal!

Beautiful bra. I first ordered 36DDD, and it was too small around. The 38DDD fits, but I have to hook it in the last hook which, when it stretches, will give me nowhere to tighten it.

Aviana Response: You may not realize this, but the bras are sized to allow you to wear it all through the month, as your size slightly changes. The 36 band has a setting for 35 and 37. The 38 band has a setting for 37 and 39. In other words, the outer hook on the 36 and the inner hook on the 38 are the same size. Perhaps you should buy both and try them on at the same time – so you will know what your size really is, and be sure you are trying it on when your body is cool and dry, and not at a time of the month when you have more weight or bloat than normal.

Fits great and the wires don't dig into my mid-section. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I already owned this model bra in a 36F. I liked it and I have worn it for years but knew that it didn't really fit right. So after reading Aviana's recommendations for band size and already knowing that the cup size was too small I bought the 40G. It seems I am filling out the cups but the fabric along the seams is wrinkled and the band is loose though I wear a 40" band in many other brands. This bra does not support me. The middle seam still does not lay flat against my chest. Also the shape seems somewhat pointed unlike the smaller size I have. I'm a little disappointed but as I said I've been pretty happy with the 36F so I can't say this is a bad bra all-together but I also don't think I'll buy another.

HerRoom Response: Jane, there is an enormous difference between a 36F and a 40G bra. It really sounds like you have not found your correct size. I would encourage you to read our fitting information.

I absolutely love this bra! I have fibromyalgia and shoulder strain can leave me in tears. I have shopped everywhere and spent hundreds on trying to find something I could live with/in. This bra structure is built to carry the weight, and something about the design keeps it from hurting my shoulders. I am also quite pleased with the cup shape.

This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. As a woman with large breasts, I've spent years searching for wearable bras. I've spent enough on bras to open a used lingerie shop. This bra fit perfectly, especially since I got real with myself and ordered the right size. The straps are very comfortable on the shoulders (no more digging-in straps)and the cups provide excellent all-around coverage for full breasts. Take my advice and try this bra!
