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.
I bought this to go underneath my v-neck wedding dress. I have a 53" bust (F cup) and 47" waist. I purchased a 48F.
Pros: Let me first say that I have NEVER found a strapless bra before that I can wear. This one works! It arrived early and in good condition. It looks exactly like depicted on Amazon and is made of high quality materials. The waist fits snugly and does a nice job of shaping me. It was not difficult to put on - I just did it backwards and then turned it around. I like that it comes with removable straps. I also purchased two corsets at the same time as this bra and I am returning them and using this under my wedding dress. It is of note that my dress has a corset back. If it did not, this bra would give me a much less sturdy look, at least when strapless.
Cons: The cup was at least one size too large, maybe two! I am returning the bra and going down a cup size. Also, per other users' reviews, there is extra cup space underneath the breasts and I am pretty sure that it is designed that way and not just due to the cup size being too large.
As stated in many of the comments the cups run large and the bustier portion runs small. Once i was able to get the correct sizing this is working out great so far! This is my undergarments for my wedding dress and looks great under my dress. I do wish they would get the cup size fixed as they are still a little large...
As a 48F, I was shocked to find that it really does stay in place, without the straps!!! I found it quite comfortable. There is a tiny bit of extra room in the cups, so if between sizes go smaller. I haven't tried it with the straps, but I love it without! *The texture may show through thin fabric.
I never in a million years thought that I could wear a strapless bra! I wear a DDD and I bought this bra, at a very good price I might add, for my wedding. The first time I tried on my wedding gown with a different undergarment the dress would not button or zip. It was horrifying!!! The seamstress thought she would have to add fabric and let the dress out on both sides. My mom suggested that we first try a bustier and so I went online and found this bra. The reviews were good so I bought it. When I received it, I tried it on and needed a little help getting it hooked, but the lift was amazing!! it held the girls up. I felt supported and it gave me a shape. I went back to try on my dress with the bra and not only did the dress button and zip but it ended up being a little loose on the sides. This bra is amazing! The down side and why I only gave it 4 stars is that it can dig into your side under the armpit. To remedy that I had to sew pads on the insides under the arm pit. Not an everyday bra, but great for giving you that hour glass figure for special occasions.
