Very pretty bra but its cut too low for me. My breasts spill over the top.

Aviana Response: Breasts spilling over means your cup isn't deep enough, and may hint that the band isn't right either. Don't rely on fit charts - try several styles in several sizes. Don't rely on historical fittings at stores either. Your bra size can change based on what you had for breakfast. In fact, you may need a couple of sizes & styles in your drawer just to get through a month! Think about days when you are bloated, or feeling thin - we know these things affect our jeans, but they affect our bra size too! Try 38H. Christie Webb, Aviana Merrill from Mt Pleasant SC USA

This bra is wonderful, will never buy anything else, I have found my winner! Straps stay up (I am 5'4" too) and no underwire pokes forward when I sit down, I read that in other comments and was concerned, I know from past bras, that can be a nightmare. The look of the bra is very pretty. 3 people have wondered if I have lost weight, now that's a bra worth holding on to! Darlene from West Chicago, Il

This bra would be wonderful if the underwire did not poke forward when I sat down. I saw that HerRoom had responded to this issue in other people's comments stating that the wrong size had been ordered, but I know that I had ordered the right size because I had been professionally sized by an authorized Aviana dealer. I have a full-figure build and no matter how I sat, the underwire always made me look deformed and as if I had a large stick between my breasts. When I stand up, there is no problem with the underwire and the bra is actually quite comfortable. I just wish that the underwire did not come up so far between the breasts because I feel that this would remedy the situation.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your comment. You are correct. This can happen when you sit down if you are not sitting up straight. Crissy from KY

I've had a super hard time finding a bra that is comfortable and supportive. I finally found it in this!! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the sheer part is not stretchy. mliss from Montana

I've been wearing this bra for some 4 years or so. I find it to be tremendously comfortable, in fact the best that I've found to date. The only reason that I give it 4 stars is that the fabric covering the wire could be heavier. Eventually the wire will poke through. Or maybe the wire needs to be longer/better fit. Still, highly recommend. Debra Debra from Lubec, Maine

There is very little adjustment of the straps possible on this bra so if you're not very tall (I'm 5'4"), the straps are extremely long, making it impossible to wear this bra.

Aviana Response: All Aviana straps are designed to be shortened without any sewing.

Step 1: Identify the slider. Thats a wide metal piece that has 2 oblong holes through which the strap slides. Pull the strap up from the middle of the slider making a loop, then move the strap through the top hole of the slider past the wide part of the strap. It may be a little difficult to move the seam of the wide part through the top of the slider. This is OK.

Step 2: Put the slider wherever you want on the strap. If you are very short-waisted, put it all the way in the front. Do not attempt to move the strap through the bottom hold of the slider until you have the top where you want it.

Step 3: Pull the strap through the bottom half of the slider. Leave a small loop of strap at the top of the slider so you will be able to easily move it when you try it on. Once it is correctly placed, pull the strap flat in the slider. Clare from VA

I find the bra material to roll at the bottom of the cup. I've tried the 40G and the 38H and they both do this. It also sticks out from the breast bone when I sit down. Seeing this I order the next size up and it still does it. The straps are comfortable.

HerRoom Response: All your symptoms sound like your cup size is too small - not your band size. If you see rolling on the sides and your center panel is leaning forward, your bra is not resting under your breasts correctly. I also bet you are rather short in stature. Try the 38H.

Aviana Response: This may not be your bra. If you want to give Aviana another shot, try the 2353 38H or 36I. This bra won't roll unless it's sized wrong. We appreciate your trying our styles. Christie Webb, Aviana Shari from Martinsburg, WV

If you have narrow shoulders you will find the straps are set too wide apart and too long. Since I've already worn it, I can't return, but I will have to spend $$ to have 2 inches taken off the strap length. candy from wichita, ks

A nice looking bra, but the underwire rubbed my arm where it ended under my armpit. Then I sat down and saw a large "V" sticking out from my chest because the underwire did not lay flat against my chest. Can't wear a bra that makes me looked deformed when I'm sitting down! The worst thing is that I took off the tags and put on perfume, thinking I could put up with the underarm rubbing...it was in the car 15 minutes later when I saw what it did when I was sitting. Now I can't even return it.

HerRoom Response: All your symptoms point to you not being in the right size bra. It sounds like your cup size is too small. This is why the center wires are poking forward, and you are catching the wire at your underarm.

What I like about this bra is the comfortable straps, but I found the underwire to be a bit flimsy and does not lay completely on the breast bone. I found this bra to be a comfortable one to sleep in, but the overall support is lacking. The lace gives a sexy appearance to this bra, but due to its thinness, it began to rip after a couple of wearings. I'd suggest this bra if you're looking for light to medium support.

I'm finding this bra pretty comfortable, although the middle seam between the breasts pops forward and won't stay on the breast bone. But considering the number of bras that haven't worked at all for me, I'm grateful this one is comfy and gives a decent shape.

HerRoom Response: When the center panel does not rest on your sternum, this is a symptom of your cup size being too small. Also, keep in mind that this is a minimizer bra. Therefore this is the one bra style where if the center panel is not resting between your breasts, it is okay.

Although this bra looks very pretty, and I had high hopes, it offered little to no support.

Aviana Response: This bra is extremely supportive, and without any other information, I wonder if you could have needed a smaller band size in this particular style. Next time, try the 32G or 32H. They may work better for you! - Christie Webb, Aviana Kim from MA

I love the shape of this bra! It actually fits. I have had such a hard time finding my size and I was afraid to order it on the web but your size guide really helps with how different companies size different. I love it!!! Katie from Iowa

Very nice fitting bra. Looks good under most blouses. The satin feels good and the lace is a nice added touch. I would recommend the bra to women with heavier breasts like mine as it has good support. Tela from Lenexa/KS/USA

I need support and comfort and this bra provides both.I really like the comfort straps.I also wear Wacoal Minimizers which are also good on comfort, but this particular bra fits better under button front shirts with no protruding. I will definitly repurchase. shari from Long Island,NY
