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.
After reading the other reviews about going two band sizes up & two cups down, I ordered a 42B instead of my usual 38C (in Victoria's Secret). I couldn't go down two cup sizes, because this bustier doesn't come in an A cup for the 42. The fit is perfect. It is neither too tight, nor too loose. I do have to fasten the hooks in the front then turn it around to the back. That was a bit tough, but when it's on it's not uncomfortable. The elastic at the bottom gives it more flexibility & also blocks the ends of the boning from poking into me. The cups are a rounded Madonna-like shape & are slightly big, but VERY slightly. I had to find a strapless bra for a bridesmaid dress that has a wrap look around the bust with an empire waist & low back (from David's Bridal - Long Mesh Dress with Cowl Back Detail). When the bustier is in place & the girls are in, the top center of the bra, where a small bow is located, pokes out of the dress when I move, so I will have to put in a small pin to hold it. If I pull the bustier down slightly while wearing the dress, it creates a dent on the top of both breasts. I had this happen with a VS strapless bra too, so I put that down to the dress being weird. Other than that the fit is fine. I do recommend following the rule of sizing two bands up & two cups down, or one in my case. Hope this helps!
This is a very pretty Bustier, It just did not fit me the way I needed to under a couple of strapless dresses that I have purchased to wear for the Spring and Summer season. It did stay in place but the cups were bigger then I expected them to be. And that is the only reason I did not keep it and decided to return it. Other than that if you can get the right size to fit you. Then This Bustier should be okay.
This bra is very uncomfortable and stiff for me. This is kind of funny but my husband was folding clothes and saw the bra. He asked where did I get my bullet-proof vest. I am going to return 2 of the bras.
