Aerie Long Lace Bandeau
My mom bought this for me in the small. This is the first aerie product that I own, however I'm sure that the fitting for both AE and Aerie is quite similar. For those of you ordering online, I would say go up one size. I usually fit an extra-small in all my tops at American Eagle but the lady working told my mom to go for a small instead. I am a 34 C. Many other people has also been mentioning their bra sizes and choosing their size based on the cup. I don't think that's necessary unless you choose to wear a bra underneath (which I would recommend because there is no padding and makes me look like I have no boobs). Pick your size based on your strap size instead. This bandeau does not feel too tight. I feel like it gives great support and an even better one with a bra. I wore this really padded bra and the bandeau fits perfectly. I would definately recommend buying this !

Just what I needed!
I absolutely love this bra!! However, I do not think it is for everyone. I have breast implants and I am a 36C; I do not need any support in a bra. I was simply looking for something like this to wear under a tank top to get the layered look without having to wear two tank tops. It does the trick! It has absolutely no padding in it, but the lace pattern is thick enough to prevent nipples from showing through. This is a great bra for anyone who does not need support or has smaller breasts.

good layering piece
i bought this in sand dollar. online it showed up as a cream color, but when i received it, the color was more like a nude. i also own another lace bandeau in white from aerie without the extra band of lace on the bottom. although i wanted a white or cream color, i'm keeping this nude one. the extra lace band makes it way comfier. i'll be returning the other one; the elastic on the bottom tends to leave marks on my skin. i think i'll be getting another one in this style, but in my opinion the colors online don't really match the colors in real life. the orange one is way brighter and obnoxious looking in store. but eh, maybe it's just me.

Great Bandeau :)
I absolutely love this and glad I got it! I'm a 34B and normally a small in tops but got this in a medium looking at the size chart and fits great. It's obviously not going to offer as much support as a regular bra, but it's perfect for wearing under tanks or sheer shirts during the summer. If you have a small chest, it's definitely something you can wear on its own (some of the lighter colors like the sand dollar might be a bit see through though!) and others with larger chests can wear it over a strapless bra. Very feminine and comfy - I'm going to buy it in more colors!
