Back in 2016 when I first tired on my wedding gown in a bridal store, the clerk had given me a similar garment to wear under my dress. I have been trying to find said garment ever since to no avail. I bought this product after purchasing a steel boned corset... What's wrong with this product, for my body, is that the boning is plastic (after wearing steel bones I felt the difference in support and prefer the support of steel). The garment stops short after my belly button and doesn't fully cover the length of my torso (which measures about 8.5 inches when seated). I am 5'3", 145ish lbs, pear shape (measurements 32, 29, 38), so when I sat down, some of my extra skin/fluff was pushed underneath resulting in an unsightly bump. These cups have underwire that didn't fully hug my rib cage to support my breasts. And the cups were also molded, but not supportive enough to give me any cleavage. My breasts are considered "side set" and so from the side angle while wearing the garment my breasts looked normal, but from head on they looked non-existent and formed creases where my arms meet my chest. The cups had begun folding over on this area as well. The back panel fabric (a spandex) had squeezed my back to produce a weird bulge near one side of my ribs.. Shipping was quick, price was reasonable given that in most bridal boutiques this costs over 70 dollars. Returns are free and so I opted to send mine back.
It was almost what I needed but the bust had no padding support. I still kept it because it was the best ones I found. I wanted a way to have a strapless bra that wouldn't fall while also giving me some compression. I discovered a waist trainer / cincher plus a strapless bra works way better (plus it supports you better without painful straps). I need compression in my mid section due to a health condition (POTS) and this product didn't provide much.
Well made longline bra however the sizing is off. I'm normally a 40DDD (I'm measured often and am definitely wearing the right size) and I ordered a 40DD as several reviews suggested going down a cup size. I had PLENTY of room in the cups and the band was too snug (yes, for a longline which is supposed to be snug)--I could only clasp it on the loosest row. It only has 8 hook & eye clasps, which made it easy to put on by myself. This bra really accentuated my hourglass shape and gave me decent support (in spite of the too big cups). I'm exchanging it for a 42D to try.
