Had I read the tips portion of the description, I would have known that the cups tend to run big. Once I returned the original size ordered, the replacement was perfect! Comfortable and beautiful. I love the side support. It's all I was hoping for. Thanks! Doreen from NYC

This is a really nice bra but the decorative stitching was too lumpy under the dress I wanted to wear it with. Millicent P. from michigan

I honestly never thought a bra could fit so well! I also really appreciated how quickly HerRoom.com was able to ship it to me. Being overseas, items tend to take longer, but I received mine in a week or so. Yay! Mystie from APO/AP/United States

Lovely bra, pretty styling and it does offer support and lift. I just found for my body that this brand does not work as well as others. Lucille from Denville, NJ USA

I took a chance on the bra. It is good and I will keep it. I have a little trouble with it separating my breasts on the mid line, but that is a problem for me on nearly all bras. It's comfortable and gives good support. I give it four stars only because I don't know if it is durable. I've had it only a short time. Christina from Utah

Well made, good quality item but the cup size is too small. I wear the same size in several brands but would have to go up at least a cup size for this bra to fit. Laura

This is a great bra! My first Fantasie purchase but will not be my last. Love the style and the fit. The support and lift are great - one of the best bras I've ever worn! Pat from Texas

Very supportive, well-made bra. I went down a cup size as suggested, but probably shouldn't have, as the cups are a shade small and I have to frequently "adjust" to keep a good fit. Will try this one again in my usual size. Jess from Texas, USA

This bra is so beautiful. I bought it in black and I feel very sexy in it. The side support does just what it says, it brings your breasts to the front. A lot of the weight on my breasts are at the side so it makes my clothes fit better and makes me look smaller. I didn't give five stars because the straps are too long for me. I have narrow shoulders and I wish they gave more room for adjustment there. The seams are also very noticeable but I wasn't expecting it to be smooth so I was fine with that. A good bra!

Truly appreciate all the comments on this website. It helped me a lot when I was choosing what is now the most expensive (but best) bra I've ever purchased. Support on this bra is excellent. I never have to adjust it during the day and I'm actually comfortable. As some of the commenter's have mentioned, there is a seam running across the front that does show through t-shirts but other than that, this bra is amazing if you need true support. Julie from MD

I love this bra. I bought it a cup size too big and I kept it and I wear it that time of the month when my breasts swell and hurt. This bra is very comfortable to wear for a long day at work. I'm a small frame so I would prefer if the wire on the side was a cm shorter. I don't mind the seams showing through my clothes; I think it's a little sexy. I would buy this again.

I'll give this bra a maybe. I made the mistake of following the advice to order a cup size down. Too small! The larger breast bubbles out of the top & when I sit down, plus the center gore sticks out a bit. It fits perfectly on the smaller side so I'm afraid to order the next cup size up (34FF). I do like the somewhat stiffer cups on this model. I did not droop like I did in several other Fantasie models. I don't have any back fat with this model & no poking under the arms. Another plus is the centered straps which do not fall off my narrow shoulders, & I also like the longer straps for my long torso. Sharon from VA

This bra made my breasts look like missiles, which is not a popular look these days. I returned it immediately. It was comfortable and felt very supportive, but the way it made my breasts look, both with and without a blouse, was too much for me.

Fantasie Response: You might want to try a balcony shaped bra such as our Florence bra 2412. Florence provides a very lifted, round and natural silhouette. Jacqueline from United States

I tried it on, it fit perfect....took off the tags. Within an hour I was in agony as the underwires were poking me terrible. Would not recommend this bra to anyone.

Fantasie Response: Linda, it’s difficult to comment on what’s happening without actually seeing you in the bra. I do want to mention how important it is to put the bra on properly: Make sure all of the breast tissue is placed in front of the under-wire (“swooping-and-scooping” from the back to the front), the under-wire should surround and support the entire breast. Very often if we don’t take the extra few seconds to get into the bra the right way, the under-wires can sit on top of the breast tissue, which can be so painful. Linda from Ballston Spa NY USA

I do need to go down a cup size, but just wearing it for 10 -15 mins, you know your going to love it. Its the go to bra. Very pretty, supportive and comfy ....and i hate being poked and pinched colleen from connecticut

This bra fits wonderfully. I recently had a baby and am breastfeeding and have had an extremely difficult time finding a nursing bra that fits well and comfortably for day use while I am at work. The only nursing bras in my size do not have underwire which I need for support. Finally, I decided just to purchase a normal bra for daytime use and I could not be happier with this one! It fits very well and gives me great support and shape. Tina from Winsted/CT/USA

Very sturdy bra. The seams on cups definitely show through almost everything except sweatshirts. The side stays can be uncomfortable at times because they poke the underarm area. I decided to keep this bra because I've had such a hard time finding one that actually fit and gave this much support. It does the job, but I'm glad to get home and change into something more comfortable. It ran true to size. Donna

Returned this item. I'm 5'3" and the underwire was a little too long under my arm.

Fantasie Response: 2452 runs a bit fuller in the cup than most of our other styles, so perhaps try a smaller cup size (32H). Claire from LR/AR/US

My new favorite. Straps don't slip off my narrow shoulders. Side panels really push shape forward so I feel "thinner." Same fabulous Fantasie support. Feels true to size for the brand. I'm coping with the seam show-through. Not the sexiest bra in the drawer, but a workhorse. wurstergirl from Cupertino

I typically wear a 34H in Fantasie, 34HH in Panache Tango which use to be my favorite bra. The Karina has taken its place. I absolutely Love, Love, Love this bra. I have a small frame but a very full bust as indicated by my size. I hate bras that have the girls going East and West. This bra really does bring the breast forward. I like the shape, not too pointy. Of course you can see the seams through fitted t-shirts, but I can live with that considering the bra fits well, is of great quality and reasonably priced. I want more colors! yolanda from snellville,ga

I measure a 38D, but have been fitted before for a 36F/36DD, so that's what I ordered. This fit perfectly, with the side support I was looking for. The band was comfortable. PJ from Northern NJ
