The best bra ever. I've tried them all. This fits perfectly and is very comfortable. No rough scalloped edges on the straps or anything poking on the inside. Cup seams show somewhat through blouses but I don't care because it fits so well. Connie from CA

I've worn the wrong size bra basically forever and because of this I always hated wearing them. This is the first bra I ordered in my correct size and I actually ordered it thinking it was a contour one (this is why it's important to read through the entire descrlption!). When I received it and saw that it was unpadded I was a bit nervous. Lo and behold, it offered great support. The cups are made of a stretchy material and are extremely comfortable-no cutting into the top of my breasts. Plus, I had no east/west issues at all! It's a great everyday bra, though I'm leery of wearing it with anything form fitting as it's not thick enough to prevent show through. Overall, I'm quite happy with it! Dee from Texas

Does not hold the breasts up as well as other bras I had. I worry I will fall out of the bra if I move just a little bit. I am returning it. Ashley from Fargo, ND USA

This is THE BEST FITTING bra I have EVER worn!! I have bras by Prima Dona, Chantelle, etc. None of those bras even came close to fitting like this! I am normally a cup size bigger, so I was surprised that this bra fit so nicely. My breasts look as if they're 18 again!! It is so wonderful to have 'the girls' back, and I am so happy!! eagluvr from United States

This is THE ONLY bra I will ever buy. Seriously. After using the "Know Your Breasts" finder, this is still the very very best option for me. No pointy nipples, nice lift, no quadra-boob for us busty gals, no bouncing, great support without a dozen hooks in back. Thank goodness! Laura from US

This seemed like a very solidly constructed bra but just wasn't right for me. Band runs true, cup runs a little small. If you're a full cup order one cup up, I would say, for the larger cup sizes. The cups are not quite full enough on the bottom to give me a natural shape. I found it had more of a downward-pointing bullet effect which I don't like. I went with Fantasie's Smoothing T-Shirt Bra in one band up and one cup down instead for a perkier shape and much more support. Megan from Wisconsin

The band on the bra fits loose and my breasts are actually pointing outwards when I put it on. Very unattractive. I usually wear Panache or Wacoal bras but I thought I'd give the Fantasie bra a try and I paid more for this bra than the others I own! I'm very disappointed. Dee from Atlanta, Georgia

Good support, very comfortable, attractive fabric. Purchased this item as a replacement for the now defunct Anna style; it's pretty good, but not as rounded a shape as the Anna style. The cup is more elongated, and, if not adjusted properly, the top edge of the cup cuts into the top of the breast. It is not a matter of cup size, but rather of shape. This shape is for a breast that is shallower on top on fuller on bottom. Rheesa from San Diego CA

The band was too loose. I ordered my correct universal size but the band was too loose. I had it on smallest hook and it was still loose. The cup didn't fit well either, so I returned it. lrp27 from dayton ohio

The bra is very comfortable and the cups did not give me as pointed a shape as I'd feared. If you have full breasts, this is a great bra, as it has complete coverage. Because the material is so stretchy, the cups felt a bit generous; I might have been able to go down a cup size. Also due to this generously stretchy material, I didn't feel I got the kind of lift I prefer. After test-wearing it for a bit, I conceded that it was okay, but I probably wouldn't wear it all that often because I just preferred a little more lift in the cups. I didn't feel like spending money on shipping various returns back & forth experimenting with cup size, so I just returned this one for a refund since I have other Fantasie bras I am happy with.

Straps were too wide and cup was cut too high in the front.

Fantasie Response: You have such a petite frame and probably need to look for a style that is less full in the cup which is difficult to find in your cup size. Was the cup too large? Maybe you need to go down to the H cup. Stephanie from US

I have never bought a particular style of bra multiple times, except for this one. it is simply perfect, great shape, great fit, comfortable , I am very short-waisted and this does not jab me on my armpits like many bras, it , for me, is a perfect everyday bra. Elizabeth from NYC

I like the fit of this bra. However, the straps in the back fall too far into the middle of my back which creates a bulge towards the back of my underarm which looks terrible in tighter fitting shirts. I'm in good shape and normally don't have back fat issues but where this strap falls just creates a really really unflattering sight on me.

Fantasie Response: Our strap placement creates a “U” or leotard-type back which is usually very flattering for most figure types… Make sure the band is snug enough to stay down on your torso, and the band should be parallel to the floor. If the band is too loose, it will ride up in the back, forcing the soft tissue (which we all have) up under the arm, and creating that bulge that you’re concerned about. It’s almost counter-intuitive: You would think a snugger band would create bulges (or back fat) when in fact more often than not, the opposite is true …it’s a band that’s too loose that’s creating the problem!

This bra made me look like I had cones for breasts. Immediate return.

Fantasie Response: Sometimes the bras with seams may appear more cone-like, but in your 34HH cup size you really need the seams to give you the proper support you need from your bras. There are many other styles that might work for you, but if you are looking for a smoother rounder look you could try the Fantasie Esme bra 2471 or the elomi Hermione 8120. Michele from Brooklyn,NY

Fit fine (right size); picture looked like it had some self-imposed structure, but the seamed cups offered just okay shape and terrible lift. The right strap hurt after wearing it for just minutes. I tried it on under a shirt just to see how it would look, and it make me look way older-- like gravity had prematurely aged me. I guess I really can't buy seamed-cup bras and expect to look good.

Fantasie Response: If you are looking for a seamless contour shape you might want to try the Fantasie 4510. This bra has the smooth shape you are looking for and gives a lot of lift and a super great shape for t-shirts. We also offer the Freya Deco style 4234 that also gives a smooth shape and has more plunge than the 4510 to give you a youthful “vavoom” look. If you try the 4234 Deco you might try the 30GG because the band runs fuller than the other styles. Sally from USA

Ordered this in two sizes. Returned both because neither provided the side support that I need.

Fantasie Response: The serene is a great bra when you get it in the correct size. You did not get proper side support meaning the band, or the side tissue in the cup? It sounds like you might need a smaller band size like a 36G. But if it is the side breast tissue that was coming out of the bra then the cup size is too small. Please see Tomimas fit tips to make sure you are in the correct size. Patty

I have never in my entire life had a bra that fit properly. For years I thought I was a 34DD, but I am in fact a 30G!! This is the first bra that I purchased in my correct size, and it is fantastic. The band is snug, and the cups are perfect. The fabric feels sturdy, and is actually pretty! The cups are definitely full coverage, and the gore comes up very high, so I can't wear it under anything moderately low-cut. It also doesn't offer as much lift for my soft breasts as it could, but it has firm support. In all a fabulous, worth the money bra! Thanks! Sarah from Kentucky

I tried this bra because I was hoping for a fairly smooth 3-part bra. The fabric is pretty smooth, but I'm pretty sure the seams would still be very visible until a fitted top. The cups were just a bit too small for me, enough to make me not want to keep it but also think that the next cup size up would be too big. But since lately I've been having more luck with Chantelle bras, I'm not going to go out of my way to keep exchanging this one to figure out my perfect fit. Danielle from New Orleans, LA

This would've been a great bra, but the idiot designer only gave it 2 hooks. Someone my size definitely needs 3 or 4 for comfort and support. The front is so well designed. :( What a shame the back isn't! (I tried this on at the request of an professional bra fitter, so I know that the sizing is correct.)

Fantasie Response: 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. Katrina from Greenville, SC

Comfortable although hot in summer. Cup shape very protuberant although looks OK under clothes.

Fantasie Response: This is a comfortable bra and gives lots of lift and projection! !The under-seam gives lots of lift to the breast tissue! Hanna from Brooklyn

I really wanted to like this bra but it just doesn't fit me very well. The cups sag a little bit on me - I tried a 32HH and a 30 HH. The band on the 30 fit great, but the cups were too small. I am going to return it. Portia from Ames
