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

Comfortable, seamless, no-show, but a bit wide-set across the center for a shorter framed woman. Stellaluna from Northampton, Massachusetts USA

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

This is by far the absolute best fitting bra I have ever owned! I love how the cups are seamless and offers a sexy cleavage for those low cut tops or tanks. The first time I wore it I felt as though I was 10 lbs lighter. I felt more confident about my larger chest size. And I love the fact that the cups have no lining or padding. Only a real,natural look remains. If you are in your correct size, this bra fits amazingly. It gives you good support, smooth and nicely shaped breasts that look awesome under a t-shirt or a tank top. Fantasie 4520 is the ONLY bra I wear. Sizing is the issue I have with Fantasie; check out their sizing chart...and if that doesn't help send HerRoom an email with your exact problem. They are great about getting back to you with an answer. But, once you finally find the size that fits you best you won't regret it. HerRoom is great about allowing you to return an item if it doesn't fit properly, so it is well worth your time and money. Granted this is not a very inexpensive bra, but for me it is worth EVERY penny. As I had said in a previous review, PLEASE DO NOT EVER STOP MAKING THIS BRA, FANTASIE!! TAMARI from Southern California

As an average size woman with a large chest- I love the sleekness and comfort of this bra. I own it in every color. It still allows me to wear low cut tops without a "granny" bra showing through. Andrea from Mesa, AZ

I was looking for a bra with a more dense cup lining- (non-see thru-"molded" is not the best word to use in description of bra) to wear under tee shirts. Also, the straps in the back gapped at the curve attaching to bra. It would have been bumppy under a shirt. I returned it. Marge from Port Matilda PA

Great bra - I now have nude and black. I had a nude in 38FF but lost weight (but no bust) so went down a back size. Love the bra - low cut so that I don't get the "shelf effect" and can be worn for work and to go out in low cut tops with great support. Worth every cent! Susan from Trinidad

This was my favorite bra before surgery (36G) and is still my favorite now (36D). Great shape, comfortable, true to size, and holds up well in the wash. A great everyday bra! Barb from Minneapolis, MN

Liked the style and comfort, but it didn't provide enough coverage at the top, i.e. "spillage." The fabric in the cups "wrinkled" despite adjustments in the straps. It's advertised as molded, but that was not the case. Leslie from Bath, ME

Bra is well made, but runs very small in the cups. I was fitted by a professional after surgery and always wear the same size from brand to brand with very little variance. This one was at least 2 sizes too small. :( I really hate it, because I bought it on clearance (over $50) knowing it would fit. I'm stuck with it. :( Kathy from Southeastern USA

Great bra, especially under t shirts because it is totally seamless up front. It is confusing that it says "molded" because it isn't lined, but that was exactly what I wanted - an unlined and unpadded full support bra. This was my first time buying online to replace a the same bra that I already had, and HerRoom did an excellent job of providing me with enough info to make sure it was the right one. Thanks!

This is finally a bra with a perfect fit for my plus size petite frame. the sides being 3 1/2 inches tall prevent the wire from poking me in the arm. This is my new everyday wear to work bra! Linda from Van alstyne, TX USA

My first purchase off of Herroom and I love it! I found that it fit me in my usual size. I like that it lifts and provides support without a lot of padding and bulk. Tara from Mass

This bra fits well and has a nice shape. I'm just hoping it softens up some because right now it's **sharp**. No pain no gain I guess. Steph from Minneapolis, MN

This is a great everyday bra. I tried it first after being fitted at a lingerie shop and was told "Put this one on honey- it will make you look taller!" In fact, it does seem to. This bra does a great job lifting and separating, and it's incredibly comfortable. I feel like it has also held up very well over time, as my first one is about a year and a half old and still works well for weekend wear. Amy from St. Paul

I purchased this bra 3 years ago and loved it. I just got finished nursing my first kid and needed some new bras....I went and bought another Balcony bra and love it...it makes me look slimmer and feel slimmer and puts the girls where they are supposed to be. Thanks Fantasie!!! Robin Robin from Anchorage AK

First, this bra DOES NOT HAVE ANY LINING. I ordered this bra by mistake, the balcony bra with the lining is listed as Fantasie's t-shirt bra. I think calling it "molded" is really misleading. Other than that, I have worn this bra and it's fantastic. The quality is very high so it lasts a ridiculously long time and it's great for smaller frame girls. It only has two hooks in the back so it doesn't feel like you're wearing a shirt instead of a bra like many "full coverage" bras do.

HerRoom Response: The word "molded" only means that the cups have been molded on a form and are thus pre-shaped. A molded bra does not mean it is also lined. Nicole from Lansing MI

Depending on the individual bra, some are more puckered at the top than others. It's a very comfortable fit. DS from Houston,TX USA

Seems like it would be a great bra...if it fit me. I have been professionally fitted for a U.S. size 36I, and I purchased this in the U.K. equivalent of 36G. Yet, the cups were at least two sizes too small for me. I had a similar problem with another Fantasie bra. I wonder if the entire line runs small. The underbust sizing seemed correct to me.

HerRoom Response: With your cup size, it's possible you did not order the correct size. We have a great chart that compares the cup sizes of different brands. Here is the link: http://www.herroom.com/full-figure-bra-cup-sizing,905,30.html Jane
