I'm not sure why they call this bra "molded," as there is nothing molded about it. It is just your basic unlined t-shirt bra. Great fit and shape if you don't mind nipple show-through. The wires are definitely shorter under the arms as the HerRoom comments point out which caused me to spill out on the sides. I think this is probably a great bra just not for me.

I have never felt anything like this bra. It lifts and separates what I thought could never be lifted or separated. I'm a pretty petite person, except for my chest, and now that The Girls are where they should be on my body, I look and feel better than ever. I can't thank Fantasie or HerRoom enough. I will buy all the colors of this bra and probably many more! I would say the only con about this bra is there is literally no padding. While this IS great for bigger chests, it doesn't help much in the way of nipple coverage. Jennifer from Nashville, TN

Great Bra! Holds the girls up, and keeps them front and center instead of pushed out to the sides like so many larger cup bras. No padding, at all (which I don't need), but still gives you a very smooth look as there are no seams. It's not a minimizer, but makes you appear smaller just because things are where they belong and supported. Great T-shirt bra! Hey lets face it, great bra for anything! Doesn't give you a rounded look, but more like a natural look. Great profile! My only complaint is that the band runs big - which seems to be a Fantasie Bra trait. I have a 30E, and have to hook it on the last row of hooks. My new favorite bra !!! Bonnie from Conklin, NY

I love this bra. It is a minimizer without being called one; it is smooth enough for t-shirts and it is very comfortable. Diane from Arcadia, CA USA

It fits perfectly, is invisible under everything, and stays comfortable and supportive all day. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This is the first bra Ive EVER bought that has given me shape. I love that it is not padded an my breasts are positioned out in forn of me instead of being smashed to the sides. It lifts and rounds the breast. looks great under thinner materials as well as sweaters. I bought the nude color and I wear it all the time. The straps are very comfortable shapely sister from harwich, ma

Tried both the 32E & the 32F. Support seems good, but it's hard to tell when the fit is wrong. The bands were very big. The F cups were too big & the E a little small. Dorothy from Punta Gorda, FL

I returned this bra (for the full coverage version) because the cup size was too small and not as full coverage as I had hoped. I did read the reviews and should have taken them at their word. I typically wear a 36C in minimizers but am probably a 36D in "regular" bras. I was hoping to try something new and will continue to do so as the ordering and returns on HerRoom are super easy and fast. Jill from Charlotte, NC

I really like this bra! Great support with minimal coverage. It really lifts my breasts and makes them go forward without that horrible torpedo look. It is good for short women as the underwires are short. It is nice to wear under lower cut shirts. The center of the underwires actually lays against my breast bone, which hasn’t happened in any bra I've owned since I was a much smaller cup size. That has taken some getting used to since I can feel it there. It is not uncomfortable, just different. The straps are thin, which is great for summer. They are a bit wider set than I would like, but they do not fall off my shoulders now that I have tightened the straps. I'm not sure why this is called a molded bra as there is no padding and the cups are not foam. For a full cup I am wearing a Goddess 3910. Thanks for your great options HerRoom! Kristin from Iowa

Purchased the Fantasie Bra which I love it is for fuller size breast with no padding. The first time I ordered the US size it was to big now I order the UK size & it fits great. My order arrived in a timely matter. Wendy from Syracuse, NY

I was disappointed. Although the concept of this bra is exactly what I was looking for, the fit was impossible. I am pretty reliably a 32DD through a variety of brands and find that balconies fit me the best, but these cups were way too small for me--I bulged out everywhere. I don't think this bra can be said to run true to size, at least not in my size. I'm hoping that customer service can advise me if I just need to purchase a larger cup size in this style.

This is a superb bra. It acts as a minimizer but is not labeled as one. It is very comfortable and gives me a great line. I would say it is true to its' sizing. DIANE from Arcadia, CA USA

This is a very nice bra. The straps are a comfortable strechy fabric and the bra creates good cleavage. Because I'm very busty with a small torso I tend to wear lower cut blouses as the higher cuts make me look too boxy or deformed. This bra is a balcony and I would love to find one exactly like it in a fuller cup for t-shirts. Littlemama from Fort Worth, TX US

A great fit. A great seamless bra for busty women. I love that the cups are not pre-shaped molded ones. I'd like to see the straps be redesigned for more comfort; a bit wider at the shoulder top and softer, but I've been wearing this style for a long time and love it. cheryl from usa

I like the Fantasie 4520 support. I did not realize it wasn't lined. I got so excited by the style that I did not look to see if it was lines. I decided to keep it and give it a try. I was fit for a bra at Nordstom's. I ordered that size. It was a little snug but I have only worn it twice. As with every bra it will stretch out and I am sure it will be just right. I would really love it if it came lined. Phyllis from VA

I am still trying to find the correct size for me. The 34 band was too big and the F cup was too small. I am waiting for an exchange and the customer service has been great. The color was nice and I wish it had fit, but I'll keep trying. Elizabeth from Texas

I was not as happy with the bra when I received it as I thought I would be. The cup does not at all seem molded, and the cup seems more demi than full. I only wear fantasie bras, and was a little off on this one. though i opted to keep the bra because i truly needed black for an upcoming wedding, i would continue to order fantasie, but i think you should look at this description further.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your comments. As the title of this item states, it is a balcony bra, and a balcony bra is not full coverage. Leigh from elizabeth city north carolina

I love the way the bra fits. It is so comfortable. I haven't had a bra to fit so good for a long time. My girls stay put and they don't fall out. I had a hard time finding a bra that fit right. Thank you so much for HerRoom. Donna from Seminole, FL, United States

I am consistently a 36DD in 'Fantasie' and every other brand and style of bra that I've bought over the past month - Elle McPherson, a different Fantasie balcony, a Bali "Passion for Comfort" bodysuit; ditto a Wacoal "Bodysuede" one; Barbara, Freya, Empreinte, Marie Jo, Lejaby, Aubade, Panache, Caprice, Lise Charmel, Antigel,and Moving Comfort. Same thing with the Chantelle and Le Mystere bras that I already owned: they contain all of me too in my usual size. (I'm 'revising' my underwear drawers this year rather than buying any clothes.) So, I'm shocked that this model is so unsatisfactory on me. Yesterday when I received it and tried it on, I suddenly had flesh and fat protruding out the sides of a bra for the first time in my life. Ugly or what! As best as I can ascertain, the cut of this bra is the problem. I don’t think it’s the fact that it’s molded and unlined that’s causing the problem. It's definitely skimpy on the sides. Also, there are vertical wrinkles on the front of the cups that I can't get rid of by re-positioning my breasts. I've never had that happen before either because I am full and rounded on top. The band fits well and follows the "2-finger" rule. I notice that although this model is called a 'balcony', it doesn't look like one at all! Its shape lacks conviction - and therefore, style - across the top. Instead, it's somewhere between a 'full cup' and a balcony. It's not a demi or 3/4 cup either. The other Fantasie 'balcony' bra I recently bought is a true balcony, has flair and fits perfectly. I'll have to search again for a non-contour, non-padded or foamed, plain molded bra to wear as a T-shirt bra. I will probably try "Wacoal's Bodysuede" line–if I have enough money left to buy it - because I recently bought the bodysuit in that line and the bra part contains all of me. It’s really hard to find a good bra of this type for a reasonable price. Which is a pity for those of us who don’t want to add even ½” to our bustlines; or who are tired of seeing mainly boring ‘foamware’ and shapewear in department stores. Beverley from Canada

I love this bra but the fit does not suit me. The 34 d is too small and the 34dd cuts into my underarm too much but I love the support in the balcony style bra. Donna from Richmond, VA

I love this bra! It fits so well and looks so great under anything! I am short, but well endowed and need a supportive garment that works well for a short person, too--it doesn't ride up into my armpits like other bras do. It's comfortable and makes the girls look great! Jorie from Chino Hills, CA USA

Way too small, not at all like the picture. Straps were thinner and dug into my shoulders, cups were thin and flimsy, and overall was at least one cup size too small. This brand is however exceptional quality, I tend to always have trouble with the sizing of this brand. I'm happy for the easy returns. Anonymous from Saline, MI
