It's an attractive bra and it fits. I've ordered several styles in order to compare what works the best. I'm finding that back closure is actually easier to put on, so I'll probably order more of these in the future. Margot from Berkeley

I love this. It’s my first long line bra but I dress very vintage, so it was only a matter of time. Very much enjoy the front enclosure. Perfect fit. The shape will take some getting used to but I love it and it holds very well. Will be buying more. Only reason not 5 stars because it was back ordered and took a very long time to get but they were very upfront about that so I knew the whole time. Katie from Sacramento, CA

This is the most uncomfortable bra that I’ve ever purchased. The back closure style was a much better choice. This bra pushes your breast up into your throat, it not worth the money.

Carnival Response: While both this front closure and your back closure bra are longline bras they fit differently. The back closure longline bras in our line have fuller cups. To compensate for this, we suggest trying a 38DDD in the same style. Onnada from Norwalk, CT

I did not like the front closure bra as much as I thought I would. There is no padding or something between the closures and your flesh. I also purchased the back closure bra. I like it much much better. Elaine from Dallas, Texas

I've been wearing this for a few days and I love it! It smooths my waist under clothing and it minimizes my chest (even though I'm a B) which is a plus in my book(I know that not all the ladies feel this way!) This is definitely a keeper. Dana from Savannah GA USA

I normally wear a 32FF underwire so wasn't sure if a 34DDD longline would even fit, but decided to take a chance as I've heard how these work wonderfully well with vintage styles. Although this doesn't give the nice separation you'd get with an underwire bra, it really does look amazing under vintage dresses/blouses and fits fairly well. Very comfortable & feminine looking. The only reason I'm not giving this five stars is that I wish they'd expand their sizes to include those of us with small band but large cup measurements. I think the fit would then be excellent.

I like the long line bra but I needed a 36D. I kept it anyway. I enjoy it because it is lightweight. It also holds in your mid section. I will probably order the 36D. Magdalene from Rock Hill SC

The DD cups were small and the tag to return it was in such a place that in trying it on the tag came off , so I will wear the bra and make do. The tag should be away from the hooks as you can not fasten the hooks with the tag on them

Carnival Response: As you can see from our other reviews, this is one of our bestselling bras. Sometimes different brands and different styles need to be sized up or down depending on the situation. We are sorry you had this issue. Phyllis from Lancaster, SC

This is a very good bra for me because I have a bad back and need longline bras for support. The fit and support are great, and the front closure makes it so much easier to get on and off.

Love this bra! I don't like how underwires leave such uncomfortable marks but didn't think I'd be able to get sufficient support from a soft-cup, but this does wonderfully. New wearers will probably find they have to do some testing to find the right size, I ended up in a C cup instead of a D/DD as it's a rather old-fashioned shape. The bust shape/feel of this type of support could surprise some people too, but I love it- usually only found in expensive vintage lingerie! Remember this is a longline bra NOT a corset, so it sits pretty much just between the bottom of your ribs and top of your belly button, great as it leaves plenty of freedom to move while still staying high enough under the arms and across the back to smooth out the bumps you get from normal bras.

I wear a 32C, but I could only order 34B because it was the smallest size available. It was just too big on me and I couldn't fill out the cups. I will keep looking for an old school longline bra that I can actually fill out!

This is a good piece. It does what it says and fits pretty well. Unfortunately, you can see the closures through some materials. So I have to be careful what materials I wear when using this bra.

Carnival Response:Yes, that is true. Since the hooks are in the front of the bra they may show through clothing made of lighter or sheer fabrics. This would be true for all front closure bras. Heather from Des Moines, Iowa

This bra was about average, but I may purchase more of them. The long line I have worn for years is no longer available. I like 'stays' or 'boning' under the cups for better support. This bra has none. Actually, this bra makes me look good! I just need to get used to this style. I have had a single mastectomy and I usually sew a bra pocket into all my bras. No problem sewing a bra pocket into this brassiere. HerRoom2 from Columbus/Ohio

This item is described as having "molded" cups. When the item arrived, it did not have any molding or lining, just the fabric. I ordered a Valmont and am returning the item.

HerRoom Response: Sounds like you are confusing molded with contour - a contour cup also includes a thin layer of foam for modesty.

Carnival Response: This style does in fact have molded cups. Molded means that the cups are shaped by a molding machine before sewing them together so that there is a form fitting shape to the cups without padding or lining. That is exactly what is done to this style. According to the fitters comments on this style you will have noticed that it was specifically pointed out that “Molded soft cups are free of cookies, padding, lining, and support panels”.

Hi There, I got a friend to order this item for me.Its good but I think it should be 5 to 6 inches longer in length so that it does not grip around the waist creating a bulk around the lower waist and hip area.I hope these suggestions would be taken into consideration to improve the product.Thanks Sharmini Singapore Sharmini from Singapore
