excellent support. Had to buy two cup sizes smaller and one band size larger, not so slim as I used to be in the midriff. Mary from Tx

I was pleased with this bra. I wear a Bali Minimizer bra in size 42DDD on a daily basis so I initially purchased this Goddess bra in a 42 F. The cups were too large so I took the advice of Her Room and went up a band size and down a cup size and ordered a 44 DD. It fits very nicely. It actually lifts-not like other strapless bras that have no support. I recommend this bra. Monique from California

The fit on this was a little off but I think if I had ordered it a size smaller it would have been perfect. I am normally a 42DDD and I ordered a 48D. I went up 3 band sizes and down 2 cup sizes to try and get the right fit. It worked okay and I did wear this bar under my maid of honor dress and it work out fine. It kept the girls up all night.

Goddess Response:We would suggest to go up one band size, and down one cup size. At the very most we’d recommend going up two band sizes and down two cup sizes. We're so happy to hear your girls were up all night! Maryea from Maine

Great fit. Listened to HerRoom sizing difference and it fit perfect. Needed to wear something under a strapless bridesmaid dress and it was very supportive and comfortable. rachel from PA

Finally I found a strapless bra that fits. I was amazed at how well it fits in the cups, as I usually spill over and this time the girls actually stayed inside the bra. Yeah! Makena from San Bruno, CA USA

I ordered the 50C and then a 48C, the 48 worked the best. I can honestly say I have never owned a strapless that has done what it says it will do. Tressa from Ballston Spa, NY

The sizing was exactly as advertised. It fit perfectly following the guide. I've never bought anything like this before and I was dubious about the whole thing, but I'm very happy with the ordering and the result. Thanks. Shayna

I have always had large breast and had no luck with strapless bras.The ones that I chose never fully supported me and made my breasts look sloppy and slouchy! Until I found this one! I usually wear bra sizes that range from 34 dddd to 34 G. I purchased the 36DD and I absolutely loved it! It slid only a little bit, but I read after I purchased that unless I was heavier not to go up a size. This bra had amazing support and allowed me to be comfortable and confident. I will order at least 3 more in the size of 34 dd just to ensure that I have enough. I love this bra!!! I would recommend it to anyone who has large breasts for weddings, strapless dresses, one shoulder shirts etc. BUY THIS BRA TODAY!!!!! Jasmine from Colorado Springs, CO

This long line bra worked perfectly under my mother-of-the-bride's dress. The dress did have small straps but the back of the dress was a little low-cut so that a normal bra stuck out. The bra was actually comfortable and did NOT move, and I didn't need to make an adjustment all evening. I did follow the ordering advice of getting a larger strap size, but found that only made the bra too big. However, the cup size being smaller did work just fine. Thank you for a great bra.

This is my second time ordering from HerRoom. I ordered a corset from another maker and it did not work. I love how this fits with a tight fitting dress. It's perfect. For a dress that is a little looser not so much. I would recommend this to anyone with large breasts and volume which I have. Good luck! Liz from McLean VA

If this bra was made in my actual size (32DD-32E), I would have given it 10 stars if I could. As it was, I bought a 34DD. Many of the commenter's mentioned they thought the band size ran small, but I found it fairly true to size, if not bigger. I normally wear a 32DDD/E or 32F, so I knew this wouldn't be perfect. As it is, I find it just a little too big, both in the cups and also in the structure around the waist. I am by no means a skinny-minny, but I do have a small frame, so it's generally difficult to find full-torso clothes that fit. But I have to say, I have been dreaming of this silhouette for YEARS. I just never thought anyone would bother to make one, because I felt like my size/body shape was such a "niche" and not mass-marketable. The bra is very comfortable, definitely fits under strappy dresses and blouse-y strapless tops. I think the only clothing it wouldn't work under is super form-fitting attire, but I'm considering having the garment tailored. All in all, awesome product that could be improved just a wee bit. Love it! Sharm from California

I am a regular 44DD & needed a strapless bra for an upcoming wedding. I followed the chart recommendation & bought a 48C 2 band sizes up & 1 cup smaller. The Band fit was perfect, I found it very comfortable however the cup size was a little too big I actually needed a B cup! but I decided to keep it anyway as it will work. My overall review is I'm happy with my purchase & definitely will recommend for all first time strapless bra purchasers like myself. Jennifer A. from N.Y

I followed the advice of buying up one band size & down a cup size, but it was totally unnecessary for me. I ended up exchanging for the size I actually measured for. In the end, the bra worked great & gave me the low bra-line that I needed in the back. However, I still have to return the bra because it's too high in the front. My dress is V-shaped in the front and back, and the bra comes up way too high in the front.

Goddess Response: Yes you’re absolutely right, we usually recommend going up in the band and down in the cup in this style. You seem to be the exception that proves the rule… We’re happy the size worked, but sorry the style didn’t work for your dress Addles from Arizona

Not a comfortable fit. cups were really high on breast and had no form. returned item

Goddess Response: It’s difficult to diagnose what’s going on without seeing the bra on the body. However, the cups feature light boning for shaping and support, meaning that they do have an inherent form. You might have purchased an incorrect size in which case the bra simply can’t do the job it’s meant to do. Trisha from Modesto, CA

I returned the item - I normally purchase my bras from a department store - I wear a Wacoal 40 DDD - so in reading your sizing I ordered the 40 F. Cup size was fine - but the 40 was way too small, I couldn't even get it hooked around me.

Goddess Response: American brands use fabrications which are often much stretchier, and more “forgiving” than the Goddess brand. Goddess offers a very “specific” fit so the size has to be absolutely correct to get the ultimate in lift and support. This style runs extremely small in the band. We recommend going up a band, and down a cup. Sometimes you’ll even have to go up two band sizes and down two cup sizes for that custom fit. Perhaps 42DD, or even 44D would work better for you.

I wasn't able to try on the item because it was physically impossible for a 42DD to hook a back-hook bra of this type without assistance. No way could I hook it in the front and then twist it around. Why on earth isn't this style available in FRONT-HOOK??? I have no idea whether it fits or not.....

Goddess Response: I know it’s extremely difficult to hook a long-line bra in the back without assistance. This bra runs small in the band, so perhaps if you went up in the band and then down in the cup (44D), fastening it would be more manageable. Here’s a great tip if you have to fasten any bra in front, and then attempt to slide it around the torso to put it on: First put on a slip, or a foundation garment –what ever you happen to have around –and bring it right up under your breasts. Now fasten the bra or bustier over the fabric, and slide it around your body. Since there is no drag of the bra on your skin, it will move easily into place. When the bra is in the right position, simply pull the slip or foundation garment out from under it, and presto, you’re in the bra! Margaret from Charlotte, NC

The bra would have been better if the producer has not used breakable iron to hold the long line. I bought 2 of this bra at once but was disappointed when the iron that was holding the long line broke and gave me a cut near my belly button. I called the people I bought it from to see if they can change the unused one for me with another bra but they refused. I decided not to buy or recommend this bra to anybody. The producer should look into it and try to use a better material next time. It was a loss for me buying this bra.

Goddess Response: 689 is one of our most popular classic bras. It’s an “oldie-but-goodie”, and women have been loving and relying on it for many years. It does run extremely small in the band, so very often we recommend going up in the band, and then down in the cup for a perfect fit. …I must say I’ve never heard of the boning breaking… It does sound as if the body of the bra was too tight, creating too much stress and strain on the boning.

This garment gave me everything that I needed for my strapless wedding gown! It gives me exactly the shape I hoped for, which is not what I have naturally:) I expect it's the same with most women! It creates the shape without feeling uncomfortable. I would recommend this to anyone without a plunging neck line, as it is rather high up between the cups. stephanie

Finally a strapless bra that supports in a flattering and comfortable manner! For the first time in my life, I am wearing dresses with spaghetti straps and no straps----and I've had this Goddess bra only a few days! I followed your advice, and ordered up a band size and down a cup size, and it fit perfectly (I normally wear 32 DD). I actually fell asleep wearing it. I'm throwing out the highly-touted famous brand strapless that I wore once and had to change out of because of discomfort and lack of support. This bra can be a bit difficult to get into alone (try lots of baby powder before hooking it in front and twisting it around), but once it's on you'll be delighted at the results!

Should have ordered the size the chart recommended to begin with. (This is that size). Returned larger one for this one. Fits perfect. Great for low back dress that is being worn in a wedding as a bridesmaid. Can be undone in the back slightly to fold under to be used under an even lower backed dress. Very form fitting and slenderizing. A great solution for my situation. Di from Montana

Perfect for low back dress. This bra can be left unhooked at the first few hooks and then folded under for an even lower back. Firm support and good cup size. Sizing chart is very accurate. I ordered on size larger because that is how most bras fit and had to return it for the size that the chart originally said. So trust the chart. HerRoom is great for the larger busted plus size person. Will definitely buy from again. Di from Missoula

I was really stressed about finding a strapless plus size bra - your site gave me the information I needed to choose the right size and styles, and gave me the option to select a few and return the itmes that didn't work. This is the first strapless bra that has EVER worked for me and I am so relieved I found it in time for my first wedding dress fitting. Thank you !!!! Anne from Seattle USA
