Sorry this bra did not work for you. If a bra has more hooks in the back that does not mean that it is more supportive. The support comes from the design of the bra and the tightness of the band. There are a lot of bras out there with 4 hooks that do not give proper support. The seams and construction of a great bra are what lifts the breasts.

This is a comfortable bra and gives lots of lift and projection! !The under-seam gives lots of lift to the breast tissue!

would be a better choice for you if you want less fullness. This plunge bra gives great support yet it is lower in the center gore and feels less full.

Judging by what you say, it seems the cups are too small for you.

Nancy, the band should feel like a “snug hug”. Snug not tight. It sounds as if the band is just too tight for you. Perhaps try going up a band size.

It’s hard to say for sure without actually seeing you in the bra itself. Most importantly, you have to make sure you’re in the correct size, as no bra will be comfortable in the wrong size. 32D is an extremely common size and it shouldn’t be so difficult to find a bra that fits and is comfy. Here are 3 steps to a fabulous fit:
1. The center front of the bra (the “gore”) should lie flat against the breastbone. This is called “tacking” and will help to support the breasts along with the band.
2. The under-wire should sit behind the breast tissue (and not on top of it) to ensure the breasts are fully supported. The under-wires should surround the entire breast, with the back end of the wire sitting behind the breast tissue, on bone.
3. The band should fit snugly around the body (like a good hug). It should be snug enough to stay parallel to the floor, and at the same level around the torso.
If these three things are happening, the bra fits, no matter the letter or the number.
Fantasie has just launched a new style: Florence #2411. Florence is a flattering balcony shape, with luscious all-over black and gold lace, and it’s
soft and comfy. The silhouette is subtle, round, and lifted.

Unseen, it’s difficult to comment because there are so many “fit factors” involved. Not only style, and correct band and cup size, but how you position yourself into the bra: Breast tissue in front of the under wire, center gore tacking between the breasts, and the band tight enough not to ride up…
For extreme lift and support, you may want to try our newest addition to the Fantasie family: Karina 2452. Karina is a gorgeous full-coverage bra with a side support panel, and center pull straps which are great if you have narrow shoulders. These features provide the ultimate in comfort and support.
