Dominique Satin Tricot Torsolette 8950
The Satin Tricot Torsolette 8950 by Dominique™ for the full figured woman has a unique construction with boning that slims and cinches the waist, curves the hips, and flattens the stomach and seams that support stress points and create shape. This strapless and low back longline is made of smooth solid satin tricot with a pretty delicate floral rhinestone between the seamed, 2-part, underwire cups that have spacer foam for a breathable padding that helps enhance cleavage by directing breasts forward instead of letting them spread to the sides. The upper cups are trimmed in lace. Stretch mesh back wings. Removable garters. Polyester, nylon, spandex. Available Colors: Ivory, White, Black. Available Sizes: White (A--32-38, B--32-48, C-DD and F--32-52), Ivory and Black (A--32-38, B--32-42, C-DD and F--32-48) (View Size Chart) One Bra per package.
Note from our Certified Fitters: This is a popular torsolette and we have a good deal of experience fitting them. Therefore, we have the following comments. This bra should fit tighter than a regular bra to insure that it stays up. Still, we are finding that the band size is running small and the cup size is running big. We strongly suggest that you go up one band size and down one cup size. For instance, if you normally wear a 36C, we would suggest that you order a 38B.

A Torsolette is a piece of lingerie similar to a Victorian-era corset but with less rib compression. Boning or vertical seams create structure and support and covers the body from chest to waist. Unlike the corset, it is much lighter and designed to highlight and conform to the body's curves rather than truly cinch in the body.

Dominique Fit Guide for Longline
Please keep in mind that longline fitting is as much an art as a science. No fit guide can take the place of a highly experienced, professional fitter.
Measure Your Band Size:
- Using a soft tape measure, measure around your bra directly under your bust. Look in a mirror to assure the tape is snug, smooth across the back, and parallel to the floor. The tape should rest on the lower band of your bra.
- With this measurement, round to the closest whole inch up or down. For example, if your measurement is 29 3/8", round down to 29". If your measurement is 29 1/2" or more, round up to 30".
- Add 5 to this measurement to obtain your band size. For example, if your ribcage measurement is 29", add 5 (29+5=34). Your band size is 34".
If the resulting band size is an odd number, like 33", you can usually go to the next band size (34"), but you should also try the next lower band size (32").
Measure Your Cup Size
- With the same soft tape measure, measure around the bust at the fullest point. Hold the tape measure straight but not tight.
- The difference between this measurement and your BAND size is your cup size. Each inch of difference is equal to one cup size. for example, if your band size is 34" and your bust measurement is 35", you wear an 'A' cup. Use the chart below to calculate cup size.
1" (A cup)
2" (B cup)
3" (C cup)
4" (D cup)
5" (DD cup)
6" (F cup)
7" (G cup)
Tips For Best Measuring Results:
- For best results, measure yourself wearing an unlined or lightly lined bra. Avoid minimizers and padded bras.
- If possible, enlist the help of a friend to take your measurements. Otherwise, stand in front of a mirror.
- Take care to keep the measuring tape parallel to the floor. Hold the tape measure straight but not tight. Be patient! Take your time. It may take you a few attempts to get accurate measurements.
- Keep in mind that longline fitting is as much an art as a science. No fit guide can take the place of a highly experienced, professional fitter. No two women have the exact same body shape or size.
- Dominique cups tend to run a bit fuller than most. Keep this in mind when calculating size.

Difficult to find the right size
August 22, 2016
I tried on several of these at David's Bridal before ordering one from Metro Medical for nearly $30 less. The ones I tried on at David's Bridal were a 50C and a 46B. I ordered a 48B from Metro Medical (David's Bridal was out of that size), but I felt pretty confident that the 48B would be the correct size. I was wrong. I needed not one but two extenders (about 4.5 inches extra) to even begin to get the thing around me, but then I had "muffin top" fat back. And even though the back was tight, the B size cups were huge and stuck out like empty shelves!!! I normally wear a 42DD bra. That's how crazy the sizing is. I've read other reviews of this same product, and some women have talked about having a seamstress take in the cups. Even if I took in the cups, it still was ill-fitting on me with the muffin top back, so I returned it.
Pros:It is almost $30 less at Metro Medical. The customer service rep, Ray, was super nice and helpful.
Cons:This isn't Metro Medical's fault. It was just an ill-fitting garment on me.

Cons:Still needs extra tummy support or Reinforsement for it to work for the ocassion.
Material not firm enough.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Just what I asked for!
July 22, 2015
The torsolettes were the exact match from David's Bridal. I ordered 2 of them, one of them had a broken piece of plastic in the center holding the diamond and the diamond fell out. Since that part won't show under my dress, I didn't care much. I just took the rest of it off.
Pros:Fast delivery and I saved $25 instead of ordering from David's Bridal.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Saved alot of $$$
