Very uncomfortable, soon as I put it on. Took it right back off. Very tight fitting. So I would say the run very small.

HerRoom Response: This is a minimizer bra which fits tight to reduce breast projection. Raani from South Carolina

Love all the Va Bide products! The cups are a little big for a b cup. I will still wear it but with a bigger form, but still love it! Breanne from Ohio

cups are the right size, but the shape is weird, so the effect is that your breasts are smooshed down. Sally from california, Usa

I have just received my second one of this bra. This is the first bra I've ever found that really does minimize. The conical shape is what does the job. So if you want a plain bra that minimizes, this is it. Jackie from The Villages, FL

This bra has changed (or I have.;-/ ). This was my “go to” for years but the cup shape has changed. Although the Bra is well made, it no longer works for me April from Savannah, GA

The cups lack support at the bottom so the fit looked too unstructured (sloppy) on me. I returned it. It is a pretty bra though. Basia from La Vernia

This is the first minimizer bra I've ever purchased from anywhere that not only made me look smaller, but gave me a shape that wasn't smashed in. The cups are made in a rather different way - almost cone shaped - and although that sounds odd, it was what a chest like mine needed. I would not only recommend this bra to anyone who wants to look smaller, but would also recommend doing business with HerRoom. This company not only offers an outrageous number of choices in everything, but the service is excellent and the return policy is the easiest of any business on line I've ordered from. I also want to say that the prices are very reasonable, as well. 5 STARS for Her Room......... Jackie from The Villages, FL

I won't rate anything I wear or use with the highest of 5 stars, but this bra qualifies. After ordering, receiving and returning at least 5 bras of different sizes and brand names, I finally found one that met my requirements. If you want a bra that is comfortable, does not show through (T-shirt bra) and gives a nice, normal shape without squashing you to minimize.......try this bra. I think you'll like it! I also want to thank HerRoom for the method they have devised to return an item! Every business who does business on line should implement this way -- all you need is a computer, which you probably have if you ordered on line anyway. No muss.....no fuss.....quick and so easy.

I love this bra! Most large size bras I have had to buy always had seams, but this one is smooth and can be worn with any type of clothing. I am glad I finally figured out your sizing. Now i know what fits, and I may just have to buy another one of these! It holds all of me in very securely! Kris from Dayton, OH

I followed my recommended UCS and it was way too small. The bra also had a strange fit. The cups sat really far to the sides of my rib cage extending under my armpits. Kel from Michigan

Purchased this bra for my 16 year old who is slender and wears a 32G. She's 5'4 and 120lbs. She was very excited when I gave her this bra, it fits well and it minimizes her breasts. She feels much more confident however her nipples still show through as the descrlption states it's a "t-shirt" bra. She's still putting on tape so they will not show through. Otherwise this is a great bra. C from Virginia

Was a nice quality item and did minimize, but didn't fit right. It made my breasts look pointy and the bottom portion of the bra had loose material where my breast wouldn't settle down into it while the top seemed overfull. Kim from Iowa

This is a very comfortable bra. It minimizes comfortably without pushing too much tissue under my arms or looking smooshing my chest. I would not have found this style without using the Bra Finder and the universal sizing, which work very well. Amy from Michigan, US

I usually find underwires to be uncomfortable but this one is not. I don't even notice the wires after all-day wear. The minimizer effect is very good as well. I'll buy this again! Linda from Texas

The bra offers great coverage and support. It took a few tries to get the strap length right. Now after wearing and washing a few times, the bras are comfortable. I may purchase a couple more. Pegvt

I love the bra, it is a great fit for me , however I had ordered a 34H which is my size in a different style and I realized the cup size ran a little small. I switched to the 34I and the fit is great. I also like how quickly HerRoom processed my order. mima

At first I thought this bra didn't fit, because I'd gotten used to really soft and unsupportive lingerie. But I tried it again and discovered that I just needed to get used to a bra with more support and underwire. Turns out, it fits better than anything else I own! I have a sunken chest, but the gore still tacks properly, and even with my somewhat-splayed shape, it's got enough support to bring them around to face front. Jo Anne from Juneau, AK

This bra gives me the "cone boob" look and didn't look good under any t-shirt I own. It spread me apart but made my breast look pointed. Not a good look. Alicia from GA

This brand runs small. I used the sizing chart and the cup size was 4 times too small. Therefore, I have no idea if this would have been a good support bra. Betty from Waveland, IN USA

This bra will be coming back as the fit did not seem to work out for me. Sizes seem to run small, I was smashed instead of minimized. I will try a different type and see if it fits better. Marilyn from USA

I know now that your bras run smaller than the average. I love minimizer bras. This looks like a very nice bra, well made, etc. It is entirely to small for me. I am returning it for a 32 cup size larger. I know what size I wear and yes it is a 32. Beverly from ST.LOUIS,MO

This item was very uncomfortable. After spending this amount I figured it would fit great. It was very tight around my chest, it squished by breasts and the side wires poked me and were very uncomfortable. I removed the tags thinking it would fit great and I was wrong. I would not recommend this bra to anyone. Brooke from Zachary

This bra was not a good fit for me. The cup size was fine. It was too tight so I used a bra extender. That helped, but is uncomfortable. I am trying to get use to it. I would not order it again. Pat from Alexandria,VA

Most recently I've been wearing a 36HH but needed to go up a cup size. I ordered a 36I which was too small. I had to return the bra and couldn't order a bigger cup because they don't make it. It's too bad because I think I really would have liked the bra. Allison from Brighton, CO

Way too small all around...band and cups. I am a 32HH in another brand, so I was hoping this would fit. It didn't and was sent back.

Va Bien Response: Please refer to the Universal Cup Size tool when going from a size in one brand to another. This will help determine your size in the new brand. The Universal Cup Size is very helpful because different manufacturers can call the cup sizes by a different letter. Jenn from Chicago, IL USA
