I will start by saying that this is the 2nd time I've reviewed this bra - I didn't like it the first time I tried it, but my bra size has changed since then, so I decided to try it again because it's so highly recommended.

I must say, I am shocked that this bra is so popular - I think it's completely horrible. It is so wide in the center that it comes up above where my breast tissue begins and completely covers my sternum. It comes up to about 1.5" below my collar bone. (I am 5'4") This bra also comes up too high on the sides for me, and flattens my chest and pushes my boobs apart.

I am 30E in 'regular (non-strapless)' Fantasie bras & 28F in Freya. In this bra, the 30E was too small in the cups, 30F 'fit' me, but I returned it because of the issues above.

Overall, this bra was completely uncomfortable, unwearable, and unflattering. Yes, the model looks fabulous in it, but girls it will not give you that great cleavage, I'm sorry to disappoint.

I recommend Panache3370 - Porcelain Strapless - which is a much prettier, comfortable, and better fitting bra than this.

Fantasie Response: It sounds as if you have a short "upper torso". (Very little room from underneath the bust to the shoulder). #4530 DOES have a relatively broad center gore in order to support those robust G cups with "confidence". It might very well be that this bra is just too tall for your figure type. At the moment we don't have an alternative strapless frame available for this cup size. But stay tuned for the debut of our new Freya strapless in January 2011. This bra has a plunging neckline, and maximizes cleavage - VERY sexy! It should be perfect for your needs! Ali from TX

I love this bra. I am a natural 32E and this bra had no problems keeping the girls up. The bra stayed in place all evening. Unlike every other strapless bra I've had I wasn't constantly pulling the bra back up into place. Helen from Fort Worth, TX

Bra did not fit due to too large cups. And it seemed to separate the "girls" too much (they looked too spread apart). I ordered the Panache strapless and it fit better and looked more natural.

Fantasie Response: Fan4530 does run generously in the cups. Very often we recommend going down in the cup in this style which means you’d wear a 32FF. I’m not surprised 'the girls' looked too spread apart, that’s a clear indication you might need a smaller cup. Kelly from Illinois

I absolutely LOVE the way this bra feels. Both the black and beige bras fit the same. Thank you so much. I will definitely order more strapless bras and encourage my friends/loved ones to do the same. They're a bit pricey, but well worth the money! Roxanne from Los Angeles/CA/USA

I wore this bra without the straps for a trial run a few nights ago. Although it's true that the bra doesn't slip, I did find that on me -- using the tightest hooks -- it settled in a spot about a half-inch lower than I would have liked, giving me a slightly lower bust line. I ordered a 34DD, which is my normal size. I guess this is just one of the risks of mail order, since in a store I might have tried the 32DD for comparison. Still, I gave the bra 4*s -- it really does give you a great shape. Kathy from New York, USA

Loved this bra.....I have bought so many strapless bras only to be disappointed, but this bra fits great, is comfortable and doesn't slip down. I forget I have a strapless bra on. This is a first for me. Will definitely buy this bra again!!! Gloria from Houston

This wasn't quite right for me, it supported very well but I didn't find it flattering. The cups fit perfectly with no spillage, but there was a dent at the top of the bra that was obvious through clothes. I'm not sure if I have a sizing problem with freya/fantasie: with their plunge bras, the 30 band is awesome and fits perfectly, but in styles where the center gore comes up higher, I feel like there is a lot of pressure from the wires on my sternum and it's uncomfortable. When I was fitted recently they told me I was for sure a 30 band. I didn't want to get a larger band here because it is strapless and I didn't want it to slip. In the end I exchanged for the B'Temptd 954108, I liked the push-up for strapless dresses. It's a little big in the band because it doesn't come in a 30, but still does the trick.

Fantasie Response: #4530 usually works for almost everyone. As always it’s so important to bring the breast tissue forward in front of the under-wire, so the entire breast sits in the cup. This will usually take care of any ‘dent’ in the cup as well. With a 30” back you’ll have a very “petite” frame, so you won’t really want a lot of “center front” coverage. It’s not surprising you’re more comfortable in a style that’s lower cut. BTW there are lots of “plungey” styles to choose from in Fantasie and Freya! Erika from Northampton, MA USA

This bra holds the girls up and in place and is comfortable enough to wear all day! I've never had to pull it up or tug at it, it stayed put. The shape is great too, round and natural. It doesn't push them out to the sides or up into my chin. I love it! Erin from Pennsylvania

I haven't been able to find a comfortable strapless bra that fits since highschool. I wore this the other day all day to test it out, and even after a full day at the office I felt just as comfortable and supported as I did that morning. Heather from Long Beach, CA

First of all i would like to say that I ordered 2 of these bras. One was a 30 ff and the other the 30g. The ff fit but even though I ordered the wrong size for the g the ff fits perfectly and made me so happy to find a strapless bra that fits. This bra stays put and I don't have any muffin top problem. It remain tight around my rib cage and it does come up into my armpits like most strapless bras have done. it does point a little more east and west than I normally like, but overall this bra is great. lauren from conway, ar, us

Great strapless, It supports like a regular bra, something I never expected! If you don't order the right size you could have problems, so make sure you have the right size, I thought I was DD, but the E fits perfectly. kristen from United States
