Initially purchased a 34F. the band was very snug and slight spillage from the sides of the cup, so I returned and purchased 36F. the coverage and shaping is awesome. the band is still snug, but the cups fit perfectly. I'm finding the material used for the hook part of the bra is slightly irritating. it's cotton, but it's not the same material as the bra itself. looks and feels almost like felt. also the seams on the sides next to the cups do not stretch. really stiff, but not necessarily uncomfortable if you get the correct size band. the cup and band material is very soft and smooth. I purchased three of these bras, and the shaping and lift is the best I've worn in years. I would highly recommend and find this a very suitable everyday/T-Shirt bra. philaclc from Philadelphia, PA

I love these bras! I bought them a few years ago and wore them out. They give the perfect amount of lift and have just the right amount of coverage. They are very comfortable once you get the straps adjusted correctly and don't bury into your shoulder. They are also low enough in the front that you can wear them with v-neck shirts ... and they still provide full coverage. Amazing! lauren

Disappointing because it didn't fit properly. It would be a great bra if it did fit because it has shaping and support, but it was too loose across the top from the straps to the middle. My other style Fantasie bras fit perfectly in this same size.

HerRoom Response: Perhaps you needed to adjust your shoulder straps up. April from MD, USA

"Molded" in this description does NOT mean there is foam in it. I have Smoothing T-Shirt Bra which fit better than this in the cups. This one was too small.

HerRoom Response: Molded means the cup fabric is seamless and has been heat shaped over a mold. If the cups are molded and also have foam inside, this is called contoured. Laura from Atlanta

The band width was a great fit which was nice because I am very petite and have difficulty finding the correct size but the cup was way too small. I had to return both bras and I did not reorder because I don't want to keep trying on bras just to have to return them. It is a lengthy process and I still haven't been credited for my returned items. If these bras were in a store near me where I could try them on, I would probably buy them.

HerRoom Response: I checked, and your order has not yet arrived at our warehouse. We average 3 days to credit a return once the items arrive to us. Ashleylynn from Myrtle Beach, SC USA

I just wanted to add one thing to my earlier comments - the fully adjustable, wide straps are wonderful. Someone else was wishing that the bra had partially rigid straps - but there are many, many full cup bras with partially rigid straps, and almost none that are fully adjustable. If you are of petite to medium height (I'm 5'4") it's almost impossible to get the degree of lift that you need unless the strap is fully adjustable - and, as mentioned by many of us, this bra has great lift. The more distance between bustline and waistline, the thinner one looks. So Fantasie, please don't change these straps! Pamina from New York, New York

I adore this bra! I have dieted down on Weight Watchers with it from a 32E to a 32D, and am thrilled. The uplift is incredible, and the shape is so natural. It is an ideal bra for those of us with petite band sizes but full cups. You should be prepared to go up a cup size for fuller coverage, because it is a balcony bra (I have been a 32C since college in most non-padded bras, and still am - for example, the Donna Karan Casual Comfort - but had gained a few pounds since getting married five years ago). This bra makes you look instantly younger and slimmer, particularly if you are petite and/or short-waisted - the lift is fantastic, but with a round shape and not too much projection. Both the 32DD and the 32D work for me - I get a more minimizing effect from the 32DD with the straps pulled rather tight, but am thinking of trying the 30DD. (My husband thinks the wider band on the DD gives a better effect in the back, especially under sweaters.) I can't say enough about how lovely this bra is - at least for small, hourglass figures. Definitely worth a try! Pamina from New York, New York

It puckered so much at the top that I could not wear it Had to return it. Jeanne from united States

So, this is an excellent bra, really, except for the aforementioned creasing at the top of the cups. Luckily, mine does not do it very badly, so I can still wear it, but I was this close to sending it back for that reason. I'm hoping it will smooth out with washing and wearing. Otherwise though - this is lovely, supportive, and gives you a good shape - just wish guys didn't think that that was an excuse to stare at my boobs. Tinyredcar from Georgia

I love it! I do prefer the contour version, 4510, but this one's easier to wash. It's sturdy and comfortable and the perfect everyday bra. Bella from CT

As with others, the top of the cups puckered on me. And as with others, I've never had this problem with a bra, including other Fantasie balcony bras. But the rest of the bra fit well, did what a bra is supposed to do, etc. Using my sewing machine I took tucks in the fabric as close to the side wire as possible and POOF, the puckering is gone. Fantasie: please correct this problem for us!! Karen from San Diego

this is my favorite bra. it is the perfect combination of full figure support while not feeling like you're wearing a small plate of armor to keep your breasts upright. it's cute and simple and very support. and the blush color (light pink) looks fine under light color clothes. emily from washington, dc

I love this bra, the best I've ever had. However, it does give me slight puckering on one cup. I'm still not sure if I am wearing the correct size/style. But, this bra is the best so far! Noreen from Minneapolis,MN,USA

Just like several of the other reviewers, I want to like this bra, but it puckers at the top of the cups too badly to wear. Otherwise the fit would be great; band size perfect, underwire perfect, and the shape is lifted, flattering, and more naturally rounded than the 4510. The fitters recommendation to go to a full cup bra rather than a demi strikes me as odd, because I have never had puckering with a demi before, but seem to encounter it with full cup styles. Guess I'll have to keep searching for the perfect unlined bra, because this sure isn't it! Marianne from Minneapolis, MN

This style isn't bad, but it didn't fit me properly. No matter how I adjusted the bra or my breasts, there were puckers at the top of both cups. I went so far as to head out to a retailer and try on several sized, but changing size didn't seem to do much to solve the issue. The cups just weren't compatible with my shape.

HerRoom Response: Sounds like the tops of your breasts are a bit hollow. A better choice would be a full coverage contour bra that would conceal this area for you. Otherwise, this is a very nice, comfortable bra and seems to be really well made. If it didn't have the cup wrinkling issue, I likely would have kept it. I wasn't too crazy about teh silhouette it gave me, but I have a feeling that it just wasn't the right style for me. Erin from Seattle, WA USA

Best bra I have ever bought - took me years to find and worth every penny. Wish it came in some pretty patterns as the fit is great and the bra gives great cleavage - would love if straps were a bit more set in in the back as straps sometimes slip - the entire line is fantastic.... d. murphy from ny, ny

I just received this bra in black today, I was excited and put it right on...it lifted and separated EXTREMLY well, however, did not fit me right. I was going to order 2 sizes up but it only goes up one size more to my displeasure..=/ ALSO: Fantasie is supposed to be generous with cup sizes..whats up with that? (hence the 4 stars) Its a shame, I really really like this bra! it is completely seamless under clothes and (had it fit) would have been a definite keeper. I am filling out the return form, exchanging for a larger size in this, or the Fantasie 1010 in my size. Hopefully they match in support. Thank you HerRoom and Jacqueline Wells for all your help!

When I read the word "molded" I thought that this bra was molded like the Fantasie T-shirt bra, but to my disappointment it was a regular seamless bra in a balcony construction. It has a sturdy construction but for someone with a round bust, this style makes them spill out a little over the top- bad under a T-shirt. If you don't mind some nipple show-through this might work for you. Not what I was looking for- will have to return.

HerRoom Response: Molded means the shape of the cup has been created by placing the fabric over a mold. A contour bra is molded, but the cups are also lined with a thin layer of padding for modesty. A balcony bra by definition cuts across ones breast to expose more upper breast tissue. Heidi from Sacramento, CA

LOVE this bra! Am a big fan of the Brand to begin with, but this is by far the best bra for me yet! It has great coverage, stays in place & thin, yet firm molded cups to make a great shape. As a petite figure with larger breasts, the wires aren't uncomfortable or pokey! Holly from Aurora, Ohio

This bra isn't bad, but it seems like it's made specifically for "top-heavy" breasts. I tried it in six sizes (32E, F, FF and 30F, FF, G) and none of them fit. Look at the dressmaker's dummy in the photo -- see where there are wrinkles along the top of the cup, near the straps? Even when I filled the bra's cups to overflowing, those ripples were still there. My breasts are pretty 'balanced,', in terms of top- or bottom-heavy; it seemed like you'd need some extra poof on top to fill out the cups, and even then, it just seems like there might be slightly too much fabric or length in the top of the cup. The bra *was* good in terms of uplift and support; I could drop the straps and my breasts stayed put! Amazing! However, be warned that it has no inner sling or panels -- I felt like my breasts were rolling too far out to the sides, with nothing to keep them forward and out of the way of my arms. Also, the straps have a *lot* of give, considering the weight they're intended to help hold up; I felt rather jiggly. This bra probably works best for people with top-heavy breasts that aren't as large as mine, and maybe with a wider ribcage so there's less 'breast wraparound' near the armpits.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. Our mannequin is wearing a 34D bra. We therefore had to put pads in the cups because the mannequin is only a 34B. This is why the cups have wrinkles. Our suggestion would be to make sure you place your breasts in the cups after you have put the bra on. This usually solves the problem of not enough tissue in the upper part of the cups.

Anne from Pittsburgh, PA
