Va Bien Convertible Plunge Backless Underwire Bustier Bra
Not what I thought I was getting
I ordered this bra to go under my low back wedding dress. I ordered my regular size 32A. I could barely get it hooked on the loosest row! The cups had no padding but were supposed to have a place where you could insert your own if you wanted. There is a teeny little hole on each side, but not even close to big enough to put in any kind of insert! Overall unless you are really thin and really busty this isn't the bra for you. Oh and MAKE SURE you size up the band so you can get it hooked!

Great for wedding dresses!
The lace detail on this was absolutley beautiful making it perfect for under my wedding dress. Also i searched high and low for a bra that went low enough in the back to be hidden under my dress and this is the only one that i found that wasnt one of those sticky fake bras! The only thing i didnt like was that the cups come to a point like they used to back in the 50s! Fortunatley my dress is thick and countoured to a more round shape so it wont show through. I am a 34D in most bras however this bra had me spilling out on top and was a little too tight so i had to order a 36D which i havent received yet but hopefully it will fit a little better.

I ordered this in my usual 34D. The cup sizing seemed about right, and it is overall well made and very pretty. The actual measurement at the closure point, however, is 27 inches! The plunge is indeed very low, so of course, it shouldn't be quite 34 inches since it is fastening closer to the natural waist. But one would need a quite dramatically hourglass figure (like the model pictured above) for this to work. There was absolutely no chance of getting this bra on, even with assistance. There is very little stretch in the material, which means it probably is quite supportive if you can get the right size. But, if your measurements are not 34, 27, 30, the 34 inch band is absolutely not going to work for you. I am going to try sizing up on the band, though it's hard to know how far to go!

Terrific bridal wear!
I recently purchased the Va Bien bustier to wear under my wedding dress, and as I'm on the smaller side all around, I had a terrible time finding one that fit me. Most stores/retailers don't even produce this size (32A) It arrived last week and it fits perfectly, very comfortable and it gives me the modest enhancement that I wanted for the big day!

Wish it had seamless cups
This bustier had some good qualities; I liked the low back and plunge neckline. It really did a nice job of shaping my waist. The cups, however, made me look pointy up top (I think it was because of the seam), so I'm going to have to return it and try a different product.
