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.
What a horrible experience! I ordered this as a rush because they didn't have it Prime, and I need something to wear with my wedding gown for the seamstress STAT. She recommended a bustier so I found this one and ordered a band size up. Getting it around my waist/body was no problem, and it was fairly easy to turn around to the front. The problem? The "bust" part offers ZERO support whatsoever, gave me NO lift at ALL, and somehow still managed to squish my underarms so bad that they stuck out and looked horrible, like a pool of extra skin that would look awful with my dress. Basically, this provided NO lift, No support, and NO difference that I needed to lift them up in my dress. Returning.
The sizing for this product is off! I also have have my measurements professionally measured yearly so it's not my measurements! The idea of this is great but the fit is terrible. In order to get the correct fit in the lower half around the stomach you need to size up but it makes it difficult to determine the right cup size!
Unless you band and lower abdomen are similar measurements (which is not why most ppl want 'cause its not) then I would not order this--the sizing is just too hard to get right!
Too small in the bodice part, too gaping and unsupportive in the boobs part, though I was accurate to my sizing. I don't see this being a practical purchase or bearable to wear for any amount of time even if the sizing were perfect.
This was an incredibly irritating experience. I should have paid attention to all of the other reviewers describing how bad the fit was...I tried to follow the advice of others and ordered the band 1 size larger than usual and the cup 1-2 sizes smaller than usual (38D instead of my normal 36DD-DDD), but to no avail. The cup size was probably ok, but it's hard to say for sure because there is NO WAY the band would close, so I pulled out a tape measurer: the so-called 38 inch band was actually just under 27 inches across. That's right, over 11 inches smaller around than advertised. Nope, I will not be playing the guessing game to return back and forth for the right size. I ended up going to David's Bridal and paying almost twice as much for the same brand in a size, you guessed it, 38D. Something doesn't add up...
Weird. Because of reviews I already went down a cup size and up a band width. But even if I were to go down 3 cup sizes and up 2 band width sizes it wouldn't fit. I am normally a 34DD, size 8 and this bra is really weird.
