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.
It was gorgeous and I was sad to not be one of the people raving about it improving my life. I bought it for a bra size up from 42D to a 44DD to make SURE it fit me for a wedding. It arrived a few days before and was way too small. I don't usually have that issue. Either way I refunded it and had to rush to lane bryant to spend $80 on a strapless bra there. Was not a fun experience for me. Still wishing I had a cute, well-fitting bustier!
I followed advice from people who gave great reviews but this while pretty and could work for some didn't work for me. It gapped at side of breast to underarm yet tight across top of back. Cup sizing is way way off. You cannot get this thing on by yourself either. The hooks are loose and not snug enough to stay hooked. The mid section was like torture and pretty much like wearing a corset. I might try another size but it's really kind of crazy the sizing.
First the bra was not bad, good construction, comfortable. It just did not give me any support (I am a 48DD) which is what I needed it to do. No waist cinching effect. I was trying to kill 2 birds with one stone and ended up killing none. I returned the product.
I only got two wears out of this before the boning started to poke through and stab me! The bra does give great support, but it made my breasts SUPER pointy...I ended up wearing another bra over it just to give me a rounder shape! Also, I went with the other reviews that suggested a higher band size and smaller cup size, and that still seemed to be an awkward fit. The cups were still a bit wrinkly at the nipples so it shows through every outfit that I tried on with it.
I looked at the reviews telling me that around ran small and the cup ran big. So I adjusted my normal size of 42 f and bought the 44dd. The fit around was perfect but the cup was very awkward and still to large. the boning pulled my breasts down so I had absolutely no lift as expected and no amount or adjusting could make this work. It's a shame because I was really looking forward to having this under garment in my wardrobe. I am going to definitely send this back :(
Bought this after reading the reviews and knew to get a larger band size but smaller cup size. I am typically a 38DD so I got a 40D and it was too small. The cup fit fine but the band was really tight and nearly impossible to get on. I returned it and received a full refund. If you are going to order this, be careful with the sizing.
Even following the suggestions in the reviews, its way too big in the cup size. I'm an H normally but I sized down to an F. Way too big still. Its also definitely cream colored. My dress is an ivory. It shows slightly and the color difference is definitely noticeable. I would have sent it back for a different size but I didn't read the tag which says no return if bent. Sadly I accidentally bent it so I'm stuck with a poor fitting bra.
nice around, but the cup boobs situation-- nope. I got the B as proposed-- still too big and i am a C/D by lane bryant standards-- I I couldn't filld these... the band was good-- everything else. nope. I don't see an A in my size either. Bummer.
