Carnival Response: Dear Customers: Andra Group asked us to address why we offer B cups in this minimizer bra. There are a few important points that must be understood regarding B cups and minimizers.

The first point that is important to understand is that there is a difference between a B cup and a full figure B cup. Two women can be the same size but one could need a full figure cut bra versus a missy cut bra. This rule applies to B cups as well.

As far as the advantages of a minimizer for a B cup there are a few but the main one is support. Minimizers historically are known for giving women extra support (even B cups) because they are designed to press down on the breasts and distribute the extra flesh to the sides.

Another advantage to minimizers is to help a woman fit into a top or top of a dress that is cut flatter than her natural shape. This applies to B cups as well. We hope this explains why we have B cup sizing in this minimizer. Carnival from Linden, New Jersey

I like the bra very much, but would like it even better with a smooth fabric where the lace is inserted. I find that many lace bras create an uneven texture under lightweight clothing. This bra is so comfortable and such a great fit, however, that I will wear it under sweaters and heavier fabrics very happily! I will explore other Carnival styles based on the good fit. The delivery was timely and I was impressed with the packaging and "return" paperwork, should I require it. Nice doing business with you! Susan from New York

For a 34B, at least, this is not a minimizer bra (and I'm beginning to think that a minimizer doesn't exist for 34B; I suppose I'm the only nut who occasionally wants to feel very small). I can't see how the construction lends itself to minimizing, even for larger cup sizes. Also, the seam dividing the lace and satin sections of the bra shows through tissue t-shirts. Otherwise it was reasonably comfortable, but I sent it back.

HerRoom Response: Almost all minimizing bras start at a C cup. A minimizer reduces the projection of your breasts by moving breast tissue more under your arms and up your chest. With a B cup, this would not be very noticeable. Elizabeth from Chicago
