The straps are a little flimsy, but it doesn't matter because... this bra is a LOT of fun. J from Ogden, Utah

This is absolutely the most comfortable bra I have ever owned. I am hard to fit because I have a large cup size and a petite frame, and have yo-yo'd on my weight... but the I found the Fantasie 4520 a few years ago and was thrilled. FINALLY a bra that fits!!! It provides a smooth look without padding and is the first bra to accurately accommodate my F cup size without being too bulky everywhere else, and is the first bra I have ever found to have the wires fit me properly on the chest sitting flat on my sternum, separating and lifting. It's a natural fit with good support and looks great under t-shirts, sweaters, even dresses. It is now my only bra - I have many in all colors to fit my wardrobe. I have always loved this bra and hope that it continues to be available. Nancy from Reston/VA/USA

I'm tall and thin with a narrow back (32) and D cup, and need a good support bra to preverve those Cooper's Ligaments! This bra seemed flimsy and not very supportive (alot of bounce and the straps are really stretchy). I believe the descrlption of "molded" balcony bra is misleading; there is absolutely no molding or foam in this bra. I have the fantasy 4500 and it gives better support but is too revealing under a t-shirt. I was hoping this bra would offer more "concealment". I would really like to try the Elomi bras (they look really supportive) but I see they are not available in 32 band size. Overall, though, I love your website and thorough descrlptions of the garments.

Fantasie Response: Molding does not mean “foam” it means seamless and molded with heat. I would suggest Frey's new Deco Bra 4234 or Fantasie 4510 for a “molded” bra with concealment. tallgirl from wisconsin

Compared to the other Fantasie bra I purchased (6820), this one is a little bigger in the cup for me, but would work. My breasts are not exactly what you would call "full" ones. Yes, a little shallow up top. Unfortunately, the wire that sits against my sternum seems to dig. I tried to readjust it several times, but to no avail. So I will return it. Not sure if its the style or this bra in particular.

Fantasie Response: A perfect alternative is the NEW Freya 4234 Deco in a 36G (UK size equivalent to a USA 36I); it’s great for those “less firm” breasts. A cut and sewn bra such as Freya Rio 3510 is also a good choice; cut and sewn bras provide great “up lift” and support - Betty

Freya 4234 Deco would be a great alternative. And as Deco has a deep plunge front, the wires would sit much lower on the sternum, and you would most likely not feel them at all. - Freddy Deb from Colorado

Very comfortable bra - Of all the ones I purchased to try, I kept this one. But there is serious show-through on the cups. And because my breasts are so large, they are heavy. The straps drag down the front and pull up the back. I don't think that's the bra's fault. I just have a heavy chest.

Fantasie Response: See note on style 4500 (kiki) for this customer in regards to the “I” cup; A perfect alternative is the NEW Freya 4234 Deco in a 36G (UK size equivalent to a USA 36I) -- Betty

Yes, but I would buy Freya 4234 Deco in a 34GG. Deco runs a bit fuller in the band and the 34-band would ensure the band wouldn’t ride up, and it would give her breasts better overall support. An added bonus is that Deco has a thin foam mold which will take care of the “show through” issue. -Freddy Kiki from Atlanta

This bra is very comfortable and fit true to size. The molding wasn't exactly what I thought it would be. I expected it to be a little thicker but all in all I like the bra and would buy it again. Laura from Paso Robles, CA

I just got my smoothing balcony bra, and wow, what a great fit. I think this one fit better than any of the other Fantasie balcony bras I own, and they too fit really well. What I noticed right away was how soft the fabric was all around. Where the straps meet the cup doesn't rub or irritate. The support is amazing, and the shape is just right. My girls are as snug as a bug in a rug. Great position and lift. The reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because at the very top, the material wrinkles a little, so it doesn't give quite the smoothness I was hoping for. You can see it a little under my tighter shirts. Maybe after a few more washes it will be more flat, but I have tried to manipulate my girls all which way, but no success. I noticed that when I tighten the straps to its tightest point it does help, however, that makes it too uncomfortable for my shoulders. I also have a shoulder condition, so that may be the reason its uncomfortable when its tightened all the way. Otherwise, that little flaw is nothing compared to the comfort. It really is comfortable. I feel supported, and the material is wonderful. It definitely isn't lined, so anyone who expects to have a thicker cup, this isn't for you. Although, I don't like thicker cups as it doesn't conform to my breast, unless its the memory foam cups that Fantasie has available in the Isabella and Francesca line (which is wonderful, gotta try it). So, overall a great bra, and I highly recommend. Tammy from Orange County, CA, US

When I was a G cup this was my favorite bra of all. I really wish they would make it in larger sizes. I wear a 32 HH and can't wear this bra anymore. Amazing comfort, best shape, all around great bra. Sarah from Amston, CT, USA

This is not a cold weather bra. Turns out there's a difference between molded and contoured. Who knew?

I like that the wires lie flat against my breast bone. It gives good separation and OK lift and support and looks pretty good under my lower cut shirts. I don't like the puckering at the tops of the cups and I can't keep the left shoulder strap up. I've shortened it until it hurts, and it slipped off. I've loosened it and it falls off. I just don't know what the problem is, or what to do about it.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry that you didn't understand the difference between contour and molded. We have a great glossary for these kinds of things. Again, a contour bra will have modesty in the cups. We are also afraid that some of your symptoms are due to the fact that you are petite in stature. Please see our petite plus size bras.

Fantasie Response: On the puckering part: This bra is for the “firm / full” breast customer. If the breast are “pendulous” it will not fit well. You may also want to try Fantasie 2132 (go up a cup size so order a 34GG). Cindy from Tukwila, WA USA

Love, love, love this bra. Did I say love? Awesome fit, comfortable, just a little nipple show through but the nipple covers fixed that problem. The girls are up where they are supposed to be. No more saggy wireless bras for me. I am converted. Jen from Pennsylvania

this is absolutely my most favorite bra of all time! Good-bye minimizers!~ for comfort, nothing else comes close, which is rare for my size... but to top it off, it looks so very flattering with the smooth lift, separation & plunge at the cleavage- blouses and open neckline t-shirts are looking great! i also love the slightly wider set straps, they feel so nice over that part of my shoulder.

I am 5-6 and 125 lbs. This bra is perfect for a thin person who has a full bust. It looks great under the thinnest t-shirts (nothing shows through) or suits, and gives a nice cleavage to a medium to low cut top. And even in 30F it feels like you are wearing a sexy bra. One note, the sizes for each style can be different. I can be anywhere from 32D to 30DD and my other Fantasie bras (style 4500) are 30D, I had to order 30F for a proper fit even though the customer service rep told me to order 30D. Although I am not sure this problem will be in the larger band size as well. Overall - MY FAVORITE bra! Eri from CT

Loved my first bra in this style. Ordered a brown and a black as well. The brown fit, although not as well as the nude I originally bought. The black was far too large. All were ordered in the same size, but there is a great difference in individual bras no matter if they are the same style or not. That's disappointing.

Fantasie Response: All colors should fit the same, we are sorry that you felt otherwise. Karen from Virginia Beach

I really like this bra. Comfortable fit, plenty of support. I found that the cups puckered at the top a little bit so I will be exchanging for a smaller cup size. HerRoom customer service was very helpful in helping me determine the right cup size for me. Jen from Pennsylvania

I loved this for the first 3 months that I wore it, it was a fantastic fit, gave my breasts a lovely shape and was comfortable. However , now I am falling out of the bottom of the band, I have to adjust myself constantly to the point that I have stopped wearing it. I usually replace bras about every 6-9 months if they are a favorite and constantly worn, but 3 months seems too soon for a bra to show this much wear. It is such a shame , because it was a great bra but I would not repurchase. The search continues for a bra that fits my very bosomy, very short-waisted self! Elizabeth from NYC/NY

I really like this bra. I like the position of the straps on the shoulders. This bra really looks nice under my clothes and gives the 'girls' that uplifting look that they need. I also wear the Fantasie 4500, but I wear that bra in size 30DD. It took me a couple of orders to get the size correct on the Fantasie 4520, but with the easy return policy that was not a problem!! Give this bra a try, I think you'll like the look!! Lana, LOVE THIS BRA from Oklahoma, United States

Wow!! What a great bra.....IF you have fuller breasts on the top. I have nursed 4 children and the girls just aren't what they used to be. The bra fit very well. Band was perfect and cup size was perfect BUT, the cup around the top of the breast "puckered" just a bit. I dipped, scooped, pulled tucked...I did the bra filling dance to try to make this bra fit right....but, I don't have the fuller upper breast tissue to make it fit right. VERY nice bra. Needs a little more "lining" to insure nipple coverage, but overall a great bra. I am sad it didn't work out for me. Wendy from Wichita, Kansas

Very comfortable, gives the girls a good shape; gravity has won the battle and this bra is a reasonable alternative to a surgical strike. Still a tiny bit of spill on the side but I don't think a larger size would have worked. I find it very difficulty to find comfortable bras that fit a small back and large, gravity challenged breasts. This one does a decent job. Beth from Charlotte

This is the best bra I've ever worn. Full cup with great support but doesn't add to my size. Keeps me lifted up and youthful. This is my 3rd one in this same style. Lisa from CA

I love this bra and the padded version 4510. I wear a UK 36G or a US 36I. This bra is really comfortable, gives a nice shape, and if you're a larger cup size the unlined nature of it is great as any other seems will show through most fabrics. Laurel from Huntsville, AL

I LOVE this bra! I only recently discovered my true size and have been on the hunt for a bra that's comfortable and flattering. This is it. I ordered it in every color available! I like it under everything, even t-shirts. Prefer it to a bra with padding. Sarah from CT

Best all-around bra EVER. I especially like how the band stays against your chest - comfortable separation without flattening. Stands up to the washing machine over and over. I've bought a BUNCH of these in recent years... wish they made more colors and am sorry they stopped making the pink ones. Marci McDonald from St Petersburg Florida
