To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
38C was a fairly tight band, more like a 36. At the same time, the cups were too big. I am technically 38D because of breast width, but with projection that is like average C cup. The cups on the 38C bustier were loose and I had to add a breast form that is at least 1 1/2" thick to get the cups to round out and not look bad with folded material. If we excuse the tight band because bridal is expected to be tight, then what I received was still not suitable for 38C and was instead suitable for 38 full-D (not even 38 average-D) or 38DD/ 38E. The 38C is not usable for me without added breast forms.
It took two tries to get the right size, but when I did I was shocked at how well it held up my giant, heavy boobs. Its comfortable and holds your bobs up without any shifting or sagging. It does have a semi-bullet bra shape, but that works for the type of dresses I wear. I am normally a 40DD and a 38C ended up fitting me perfectly. Not to be dramatic, but finding a good strapless bra is a life changer!
The cups are big and the band is small. I normally wear a 38D in bra size and I ordered a 38C. The band is a little to snug and the cups fit but I think a 40B would have been perfect. The bustier does keep you supported even if you have a large bust which is really hard to find strapless. If you can get the correct size I think this item is very good.
I brought a C cup and they run somewhat large. I will ultimately buy inserts, but without having what you need to fill it up, the lace is stiff and creates lumps underneath blouses. If you are looking for something smooth to go under thin material for those summer halters, pick a satin one.
It's built well but the cup size was a bit too big. It was baggy. I wanted to wear this under my bridesmaid dress but it would have looked awful. I would have returned it but I forgot about it in the corner of my room until it was too late to return.
