Was a bit smaller than expected, but all worked out in the end Amy from San Diego, Ca

I ordered 6 different corsets online to try under my wedding dress. This was the one out of 2 that actually delivered what it promised. Great support, quality fabric and construction, and a good price. The reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because although it is the one that fit the best, it was also the most plain. It could be a little more decorative and sexy looking because it's almost impossible to find a sexy, decorative corset in a 40DD. Jordan from Stoughton, MA

Although the quality and design are great, the size was not what I expected. I have tried on this size in many other models/brands and it fits fine. This 40C was smaller than most. I had to return it for another size. They seem to run about 1 size small. Other than that, this does exactly what it promises! Liz from San Francisco, CA

This is a nice bra, but does not work for my halter style wedding dress because the center between the cups show. May also want to be careful about the center boning that comes down the front. It showed thru on my gown. I will use this bra with a strapless bridesmaid dress. Diana from Virginia

It is a beautiful garment, but it was too small, even though the measurement under my bustline is 42.

HerRoom Response: If you have an under-bust measurement of 42, you need to add 4" to get your correct band size. Therefore, you would be a band size 46.

I purchased this bra to wear underneath my wedding gown. I was very pleased with the fit of the cups and torso. The fabric is pretty comfortable too. It is a great strapless bra for curvy girls with a larger chest...I feel secure wearing it, and I will probably wear it under other strapless shirts and dresses. Ashley from Auburn, AL, USA

I have to agree with the reviewer who said it did not fit at all, except in the bust. I, too, was very disappointed. Herroom's response describing the difference between "full figure" and "plus-size" does not explain the poor fit. I know I am plus-sized and carefully chose the filters to apply to my search so that I would be given a choice of garments that are designed for plus-sized women. I began my search first choosing the Plus Size tab, then selecting the quick link for "plus-size by size", then selecting my bra size. If this is not a plus-sized garment it should not have appeared using these filters. In fact, I ordered several longline strapless garments resulting from that search and although they all fit wonderfully in the bust, not one of them would close around my middle.

HerRoom Response:Longline bras are always a challenge for plus size women. The manufacturer selects a bust size, then determines what the most common waist size will be and makes the garment accordingly. If your waist is considerably large, there really is no long line bra on the market that accomodates you. One solution would be to wear a bra and a piece of shapewear.

I am not apple shaped, I am square shaped. My middle is not larger than my bust or hips, it is narrower by 10 inches. I have measured myself carefully several times using the instructions on this website and looking in the mirror to be sure the tape was straight. Regular bras I've ordered from this site in the same size fit me well. I will continue my search for a long line strapless I can wear as Mother of the Bride, but I no longer hold much hope of finding something that fits and supports my bust properly and also closes around my middle.

It is a well-made item, very supportive, and a good fit in the bust, but not long enough for my torso. It barely made it down to my waist, let alone my hips. My sister loved it, however, so I let her keep it. Stacy from Michigan, USA

This corset was bought for my 19 yr old daughter, who will be wearing it under a brides maid gown. She loved it! Wendy from Holbrook,MA. USA

Finally a strapless bra that supports large breasts!! I bought this to go under my halter top style wedding dress and it looks great. It would be nice if they cut it about 1 inch lower at the back, but I was able to pin my dress to the bra so it did not show. My dress had an extra low back so getting a strapless bra was hard, but this one fit the bill. Cup size was accurate, but I did have to go up from a 38 to a 40 to get the right fit. Both my brides maids who are a 36D and a 36DD ordered the same bra once they saw mine. They love their bras too. Vicky from Chandler, AZ, USA

I was so disappointed! I came to to purchase a strapless, low-back body shaper to wear under a Mother-of-the-Groom dress and I read the advice that suggested a long-line bra instead if you are big busted. I purchased the 42DD longline and it was pretty but did not fit at all. It might fit a small person but not a larger person and it's definitely not "full figure". It's "full bust" only. I will be returning it. If you're going to advertise full figure bras, you should use full figure models.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry that this item didn't fit you. At HerRoom we use the terms "full figure" and "plus size" very carefully. Full figure means bra sizes larger than a D cup. A full figure woman has full breasts. Plus size means breasts larger than a D AND panty sizing larger than a 9. A plus size woman has full breasts and more "meat" on her bones.

This bustier did not fit my needs at all. I am a 38DD with a very slim waist. it was like wearing an upside down umbrella. The cups ended up being way too big even though I'm practically busting out of my DD bras, and the bottom did not fit like in the photo. It was HUGE!! Definitely NOT worth the money that they ask for!

HerRoom Response: It sounds like you could successfully go down a size or 2 in this garment.

I must have tried on 30 different strapless bras before I found this one - and it is WONDERFUL. I actually felt pretty secure, and it gave me a natural look under my dress (no pointy cups!). If you're looking for a strapless, make sure this is one of the first you try - you'll save yourself many disappointments and trips to the post office. Kristin from Indianapolis, IN

Wow! This bustier is awesome. I desperately needed one in black with a very low back to wear with a formal gown. This one was perfect! I really like that it's long- the length is at the hips- the longline bras that end above the waist leave a weird ridge. The cups are seamless. Comes with long garter straps and clear shoulder straps. Very supportive. Unbelievable low price! If you are well endowed and need to wear a strapless or low backed dress, this is your bra!

I tried three different bras for a strapless bridesmaid dress and this one is amazing. The others were too tight or not supportive but this one is great. I am a size 8-10 and this fit perfectly. It gave me a nice smooth line under the dress and the cups have boning in them which makes them very supportive. AMF from Baltimore, Md
