I was so disappointed in this order. I needed a good strapless bra for an upcoming wedding. Now it's here and is nowhere even close to my fit. Another family member also ordered one and the size was equally as far off.

Goddess Response: We're so sorry this style didn't work for you. GD0689 is one of our classic styles, and it has it's own particular fit. We recommend going up in the band (one or two cup sizes, and then down in the cup the corresponding one or two cup sizes). Every brand fits differently, so it's important to be flexible about your size. Sometimes it takes good old fashioned "trial and error" to find the perfect fit in a particular style.

Pretty good corset! Make sure you measure a little above your waist and go exactly by that measurement. I am a 38G or H and I bought 42F. I probably could have gone even a cup size smaller. Also the corset really will hold in your waist, but if you are a plus size gal like me you will need shapewear for your hips for smoothing. The corset was perfect for my strapless gown!

Beautiful but runs too small.

Freya Response: I’m so sorry GD689 didn’t work for you. We recommend going down a band size (sometimes two), and then up the corresponding cup size. Julie from N. Bergen, NJ

I wanted to like it, but I can't. The band definitely runs very small. I wish I had paid attention to reviews about that. any shaping benefit was negated by the bulging over the too-tight edges. The cups were not too big for me, but the shape they gave me was awful. I'm not afraid of a bit of a retro look but this was straight-up grandma torpedo boob. I had to send it back.

Goddess Response: I’m so sorry GD689 didn’t work for you. As you’ve mentioned, we recommend going down a band size (sometimes two), and then up the corresponding cup size. If you’d ordered a band size up, and the band fit you correctly, the cups would also fit differently, and I’m sure you would be happier with the resulting shape. Alternatively, you might want to try Maria (EL8500) our strapless bra in Elomi, our sister company. Maria is a strapless bra, not a bustier. Many customers team this bra with a shaping garment which goes up to the waist for a completely smooth look. You’d wear a 36D3. Erin from NJ, USA

I've tried on a few times but, not worn yet, the fit around the body is great. I now realized a tag later, that my cups are too big. Which, in turn, making my breast area in my clothing look pointy. Toni from Snellville, GA, USA

Cups run very large, order two sizes smaller. Order not your band size but the inches you are above your belly button.

Goddess Response: Your fit tip about the band is a really good one! We recommend going up a band size, (sometimes two band sizes, if you have a very full tummy), and then going down the corresponding cup size. Did you perhaps go up a band size, and not go down a cup? Also it’s so important to remember to “swoop and scoop” your breast tissue from the back to the front in front of the under-wire into the cups. You’ll find you’re taking the breast tissue out of your underarm area, and filling the cups where it belongs. Adjusting your breast tissue in this way will not only make the bra fit properly, it will make it much more comfortable to wear! Kelly from Norwich

Gave my breasts an unnatural looking, pointy shape, so I had to return it even though the rest of it fit perfectly. Seemed to be really good quality and arrived quickly so I would still order from HerRoom again. Jessica from Holland, MI USA

I wanted to love it. I bought it for a wedding I'm standing up in that I need a strapless bra for. I'm only a C cup, sometimes D, but I just hate strapless bras... So I want a sure thing when I have to wear it all day. For one thing, this bra is really hard to get on by yourself. It's got about 8 clips in the back and you can't just turn it around. That was a bummer. But when I finally got it on, my breasts looked so pointy. I couldn't do it; I had to send it back. If you don't mind the shape, than I think this bra would have held up with no problem all day and night! I just prefer to be more rounded.

Goddess Response: Maybe the reason you hate strapless bras is because you haven’t yet found the perfect one for you. Check out FL4530 in our Fantasie brand. The cups are completely smooth, and provide a gorgeous round, lifted silhouette. The band runs a bit snug, so perhaps try a 38B in this style. Elizabeth from Milwaukee, WI

My seamstress suggested I get the Godess bra for under my dress for my daughters wedding. After receiving it, to my dismay I was unable to wear it as when I tried it on at my last dress fitting the bra showed at the cleavage line of my dress. Also I was professionally measures for my bra and I ordered that size and there was excessive fabric in the cups. The little time I had it on it wasn't a smooth feeling.

Goddess Response: “Excessive fabric” in the cups suggests that perhaps you just need to go down in the cup (42C). This would also bring the height of the bra down in the front. We usually recommend going up in the band, and down a cup in this style. If you’re looking for a seam-free, absolutely smooth look in a strapless bra, perhaps try EL1230 in Elomi, our sister brand. I would recommend a 40DD in this style. Jane from Pittsburgh PA USA

This Goddess longline bra was purchased to wear with strapless and spaghetti strap summer dresses. It was a true size, comfortable and perfect uplifted support for a full busted woman. Glad I made this purchase and will get other colors! Aleisha from Abingdon, MD

I took 1 look @ the Goddess corset and knew I had to have it. I ordered the garment for a beach vacation but it was on back order. By the time it arrived, it didn't fit.(its so beautiful..I'm not missing out on this)customer service was amazingly helpful. Anxiously awaiting.. Kristy from Phoenix, AZ. USA

I searched forever in stores and online for a plus-size strapless longline bra for my bridal gown, and (as with ever hour-long, grueling bra fitting ughh) expected the result to be the wrong fit and prepared myself to return it long before I even received it. And let me tell you...I was WRONG. This bra is EXACTLY what I was desperately searching for!! I wear a 40F in Layne Byant sizes, so I followed the fit tip of ordering down a size in the cups (nervous--my cup usually runneth over) and up a size in the band (and I ain't afraid to eat, let me tell you) and the result is a perfect fit. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because it does give you a little bit of the Marilyn Monroe cone action, but if you are wearing this with something structured like an evening gown or a wedding dress, the shape shouldn't be an issue. My busty bridal dreams are saved!! Twaink from TX

I have never been able to wear a strapless bra since I have extra large bosoms. it is either too small and I have boob muffin top, or fits the boob but no support, and I'm floppin all over the place. I took my measurements and went by HerRoom sizing, that's the best way to go if you're unsure about your size, mine fits PERFECTLY. Full coverage, with support. I actually did 20 jumping jacks and they stayed in... Seriously, not kidding I did. Is it the most comfortable thing in the world. Anything that can hold these big girls in I'll put up with. Overall definite 5 star piece, great quality! Rachel from Chicago, IL

I really wanted to love this bra after reading the reviews. I went up one size with the band and down a cup size as recommended by other reviewers. Perhaps my breasts sit higher on my chest, but I found this bra's cups sat extremely low. The cups themselves were outrageously large completely covering the tops of my breasts down to the bottom of my rib cage. My breasts were barely lifted from where they typically sit without a bra. The lace itself was scratchy as well and I felt would abrade my skin if wearing it for long periods of time. The bra did not provide any lift at all and all the shape came from the molded cups, which were an odd shape due to the stiff lace and boning. The one positive I can say for this bra is that like liked the long line. It was firm without being binding.

Goddess Response: Hi Jacqui. If you love a long line bra, perhaps try our Goddess Keira Longline Soft Cup Bra. You’ll get the light control, and added support of a longline bra, and the comfort of wire-free cups. We use an ultra- supportive satin simplex in the cups, which is oh so comfy! The band runs a bit full, so we recommend going down in the band, and up in the cup. (38DDD). Jacqui from Indiana

I love the length and comfort of this bra, however, the cup size is still too big. I normally wear a 40DD (dress size 20) and have tried this bra in 42D - not big enough around and cups way too big. I then tried it in 44C - fit around but cups still too big. I ordered the smallest cup size - 44B and the cups are STILL too big. How is that possible when my normal size is 40DD??

Goddess Response: Hi Kayce. GD0689 is part of our original “classic" Goddess collection, and has been a customer favorite for many years. This style has its own unique sizing, and we recommend going up one, or sometimes even two band sizes. It could be that you’re not “swooping and scooping” your breast tissue into the cups, and therefore it seems that the cups are too large. If you make sure to bring your breast tissue forward, from the back to the front, placing the breast tissue in front of the under-wire, into the cups, it changes the fit of the bra completely. You’ll find you’ve created more volume in the cups, and less volume in the band. Please refer to Tomima’s fabulous fitting tips and videos to help you. Kayce from Michigan

I originally got this bra because I got a tattoo on my shoulder and I couldn't have my bra straps rubbing against it while it healed; I'm so glad I found this bra! I've always hated strapless bras because they never supported my large breasts well but this bra is amazing!! It completely covers and supports my breasts and looks completely normal under clothes. I'm so glad I found it! Rebecca

I'm amazed that it fits! I ordered my usual size 34DDD and another in an alternate size 36DD (1 band size up, 1 cup size down, as recommended by other customers). The usual size did not close at all. The alternate size fit shockingly well! I have a curvy petite frame with a short torso, and the boning in this bustier fit me just fine. It leaves a smooth line around the waist rather than sticking out like a peplum at the hip, which is great. I highly recommend this over any other strapless bra for well-endowed ladies!

Horrible breast shape in the cups. Love Herroom and all the options for larger cup sizes.

Goddess Response: GD689 is one of our classic styles, it has its own fan club, but it’s not for everyone. As with all bras it’s essential to be in the correct size! We recommend going up in the band one or two sizes, and then down in the cups for a perfect fit. Cordelia from Seattle

This bra truly is very supportive. I followed the directions and got the bra a band size bigger and cup size smaller (I'm a 34DDD). I'm 34-29-38 and short-waisted, and the bra fit perfectly lengthwise. It took a bit to get my breasts to conform to the cups properly, but only took some scooping and bending over. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the top of the bra sits very high on the chest, as it is a full figure bra, which creates an issue. I bought this bra to wear under my wedding dress, but it stuck out above the dress, and others I tried on as well. Still, it's worth having for any tops that have a higher neckline and you don't want to show your bra straps. Also gives you good posture! Sarah from Carroll, IA
