I love this bra! It fits perfectly and it is very flattering considering I am well endowed. It is comfortable and wear it all day long. Truly is a beautiful bra. Ana from Glendora, CA, USA

Being large busted, I love the fact that it does not cut in under my breast and underarm areas Submitted from TheUndies.com

The band on this does run big, so order a size down, but make sure you get the correct cup size. If you go down a band size, go up a cup size. The bra gave a great shape and was very comfortable, but it wasn't right for me. It was more coverage than I was looking for, and under a t-shirt the seaming was visible. I do like the lace on the top of the cup, but it did seem a little too stretchy and loose. I returned it. Rachel

I find the straps a bit too long, even after adjusting them, but being that I have a small frame, I'm accustomed to this, & it doesn't bother me much; however, it may bother other petite buyers... I think the black (which is the color I ordered) is amazingly sexy while being wildly supportive. No under-wires digging into my armpits or my rib cage, & no redness on my back, plus, back fat is no longer an issue. I bought the matching set: panties & garter belt. Needless to say, my boyfriend loves it, & I do too! Dora from Richmond

Very pretty but not at all supportive-this bra would be best for women with very firm breasts that don't need support. The cup fabric is stretch lace, the straps are stretch, the band is stretch. Kai from Portland, OR

It seemed fine at first, but after wearing this bra a couple of times the neckline causes spillage, and after wearing it a few more times the lace top part of the cup stretches out and the seam that joins it to the solid section doesn't stretch out, so you get an additional lump added on to the spillage lump. Construction seems good. It's probably perfectly fine for someone with up to a DD cup. Jess from Atlanta

Very pretty, great shape. The lace seems really fragile, so we'll see how this holds up over time. I generally replace my bras once a year and buy 4 at a time. MLE from Seattle, WA

The bra I ordered was supposed to be equivalent to a 36 O; I wear an N so, I was excited that there may be a larger size to accommodate me better. NOT SO! The bra is really a K, which is not big enough! Universal cup sizing doesn't work for me. I'm returning it.

Fantasie Response: You might want to try an elomi 36K (UNC 36 D12) cup in the Caitlyn Bra style 8030. This particular bra runs nice and full and gives a K cup a lot of support. In your particular size this would be the best option for you. Jacq from Oxon Hill, MD USA

This is a very pretty bra, but sadly, the most uncomfortable bra I've ever worn. It seemed to fit perfectly when I tried it on. The unwires dig in badly right at the ends that sit in the cleavage. Sadly, I kept it because it seemed to fit so well, but by the end of the day it was intolerable. Since many customers love this bra, it must just be a bad fit for my body. I would suggest wearing it a bit before keeping it. Fantasie, please help! You make lovely bras but I'm very hesitant to try another.

Fantasie Response: If the wire is digging into your cleavage in the center gore of the bra then the cup is too small. The wires should always clear the breast tissue and should never sit on your tissue but should be on the outside of your tissue on bone rather than on breast tissue. You could try Florence in a 34E or 34D3, or try one of the many other great styles in Fantasie or Freya. Nicola from CT

I LOVE this bra!!! The lace is soft, the shape is superb (most rounded soft cup bra I own) and it's comfortable as well as supportive. I'm definitely going to pick up a few more, especially if it comes in more colors! For reference, I bought the cafe latte color and it's the most beautiful nude bra I've ever owned.

I had to send mine back as I have gone down a size! So I reordered the t-shirt bra's by Fantasie in a 32E and absolutely LOVE them! I think I'm going to order the Florence in the lower size as well. Just because they are sexy and look great under thicker clothing, due to the lace. IloveFantasie from Ann Arbor, MI

This is a very cute bra, but the underwires dig in without mercy. This is by far the most uncomfortable bra I have ever worn, and I have worn underwire bras for over 20 years. It was fine when I tried it on. But after wearing for a day, I had deep indentations in my skin. By morning, some red was still visible. The ends of the wires that rest in between the breasts come up high, and perhaps that is the problem, as that's where they were digging in. It's not a size problem as I tried the 34D, but that was too small in the cups. It's a cute bra with great support, so perhaps a differently-shaped woman would love this bra, but it's not built for me, or I for it.

Fantaise Response: You might need a style with a lower center gore like the Deco in Freya which has a deep plunge in the center. Nicola from CT

Gorgeous bra. Fit was excellent with the exception of the lace on the top puffing out a little due to my post-baby shape. Haven't decided if I'll keep it due since the bulge may look funny under clothes. But it's so pretty I just might. Amy from Texas

I love this bra! Holds the girls very nicely! No gaps. Not tugs and the band fits snuggly but not too tight. No over the top "Blueberry Muffin" spillage. Beautiful color! Margaret

This bra is so feminine and attractive yet it provides figure-shaping support. Fantasie manufacturing standands are high and they pay attention to every detail. I've owned several in the past and they stand up to washing and wear for years and still look great. Worth the extra money. Cenerentola from Jacksonville, FL

I have had so much trouble all of my adult life finding a bra that fits, is comfortable to wear and is not like a bridge truss to wear. This bra is wonderful. I can finally walk straight up. Lindy from Louston, Texas, USA

I have finally found my size! I cannot find a bra with a 32 band and a cup large enough to fit me in the stores! So this website was a lifesaver! I love this brand of bra. I tried on several different styles, and this is the one I kept! I must say that all the Fantasie bras are very well made. This style puts me out there (because there's plenty of me) but it's a rounded look, and I like that better than a pointy look. There is good support also. The only thing I don't like is the lace on the underwire is itchy. All in all, it is a great bra!!! Becky from IL

This is a very pretty bra, and Tomima's fit advice about the band was absolutely spot-on. I've more or less decided that balcony bras aren't my thing, because I jiggle too much in them, but that's a personal preference, and no knock on the bra itself. One color note: the purple color on my monitor is a blue-violet, but in actuality, the bra is a plum or eggplant color. Still pretty, but not quite what I was expecting. ownsyjay from Georgia

It is really hard for me to find flattering bras that fit me. I love this one, it fits well, no poking wires or chafing fabric. Plus it doesn't make me pointy and they are up front, not squished to the sides. I'd buy more, but they're out in my size :( Shannon from Salt Lake City, UT

After months of searching for a lacy, sexy, supportive and comfortable underwire bra...the Fantasie Florence 2412 is a dream come true. It is feminine, the underwire lies flat in the right place against my ribs, and the girls are right up where they should be. I have purchased it in three colors, and am extremely satisfied with all of them...love this bra!!! hard to fit from Medford, Oregon

Very pretty and very comfortable. The center of the bra does not lay completely flat against my chest, so I would not wear this bra with a t-shirt. I would get another one as it is my most comfortable bra with the best support. Colleen

I'm not a fan of seamed cups because they generally don't hold the girls up too well. This bra did a better job than most, was *very* pretty, and gave good shape. It has a larger band (I could put it on the middle hook instead of the first one). My objection is that, if your breasts aren't perfectly identical, this bra won't work; there's no room for diversity with this bra.

Fantasie Response: Your band might be too big which means you need a 30GG in this bra. In the Fantasie bras there is usually very little stretch to the cups to allow maximum support for the fuller breasts. You might try the Fantasie Savannah bra style 2152 because it has more plunge and will give you more diversity in the cup to allow for the fuller side. Sally from USA

Its not quite supportive as I would like.Initially I loved it,but after a few days of wear it seems to not hold me up so well.It could be that their band size is a little bigger than measured. I ordered a 30,but from now I will order a 28 with Fantasie.Other than that,its cute.It doesn't give you cone boob,which is wonderful since many lace ones I've tried do that.I wouldn't wear it on a cold day though. :) Brenna from Hinesville/GA/United States

Bra was well made and good quality. However, the cup size was way too small so the bra did not fit at all. I wear the same size in several brands so my guess is this runs different as far as size. I would have to go up at least a cup size for it to fit. Laura

I usually stay away from sectioned bras because they tend to create a pointy look and I prefer non seamed or molded bras for a round look. This bra is not pointy. The shape is rounded and the fabric in the cups make it feel like I have nothing on yet I am supported. Great alternative for summer because the molded bras can be very hot and uncomfortable in the heat. I recommend this bra to women who have previously stayed away from sectioned bras. You will not be disappointed. Bizzy from East Brunswick, NJ
