Love the fit and flexibility this bra offers. Own the Fantasie 4510 in 30 E which is the same bra with straps. Had also ordered the 30 DD since tips suggested to go a size smaller but this was not the case for me. Lisa

Fits great. Holds your breasts up without giving you a lump of skin over the top! Fits snugly so you don't have to worry about tugging on it to keep it up. Linda from Winchester, KY

I normally wear a 34F Fantasie bra. Your previous reviewers suggested buying a cup smaller, so I ordered the bra in a 34E and a 34F. Neither of them fit me well. I had a bulge under my arms and thru my back. I called and talked to a consultant who I felt was more knowledgeable than the original person I spoke with. I then ordered a 36E and it fits perfectly. It feels better than any strapless bra I have ever owned. It stays put and you don't have to tug on it all the time to make sure you are not falling out!! Linda from Winchester, KY USA

Does work. So far, I find the band width a little tight although I have always worn a 36F in Fantasie bras. Otherwise, I wear a 36G. I will keep it as it is the best I have found. Donna from Wixom, MI USA,

After years of struggling with staples bra’s I had just given up. Then I decided to give this one a try and it worked. I followed HerRoom’s advice and went down a cup size since I am typically a 34H. I didn’t need to adjust that often and the bra even survived a dance battle. Since I have only worn this bra twice and have yet to wash it I can only give it 4 stars. Antoinette from Santa Barbara

This is my favorite bra. I've been wearing it for years. It gives support and seems to minimize as well. My only complaint is that the grosgrain taping for the hooks of the removable straps tends to break and fray and occasionally needs to be repaired. I would imagine this is more of a problem with larger sizes/larger breasts. But besides that it's an amazing bra. I would wear it even if I had smaller breasts. Adie from brookly, ny, usa

Normally I wear a 36G in Fantasie and Panache bras, so I followed the advice to get a cup size smaller and went with the 36FF. The band was a perfect fit, nice and snug the way I like it. However, despite going down a cup size, I found that the cups gapped significantly at the sides on me and slightly at the top. This could be due to the fact that I've nursed 3 kids and my breasts aren't as perky as they once were. Also, I generally prefer a more 'forward' look and these cups seemed too wide-set for me, since they gave me a minimized look with my breasts pointing more toward the sides than toward the front. Overall, it wasn't the silhouette I was looking for so I sent it back and will try something different. As always the customer service from HerRoom is excellent. Jen from Lacey, WA USA

I ordered a size smaller like suggested in the tip section and was way to small. Decided to try a brand. I would say go with your original size. I love my smoothing Fantasie t-shirt bra it is my favorite!!

Fantasie Response: The cup usually runs big, but you might want to try going up a cup!!! This is a super great strapless bra!!! Dawn

After reading the reviews for all the strapless bras I thought that this was probably the one I wanted. I haven't purchased a strapless in years, but I've been a standard 36G in Fantasie and Panache for a few years now and reading the recommendations to go down a cup size, I bought a 36FF.

Pros: The band fits wonderfully - perfectly snug, the way I like it - so no problems there. The silicon grips make it feel very secure.

Cons:The cups are definitely too big and gap away from me at the sides, though. Having nursed 3 children, I'm not perky at all anymore, so I could understand a bit of a gap at the top. But the sides? Also, while I like separation in a regular bra, I find that I prefer a little more cleavage with a strapless, given the type of dresses and tops I would wear a strapless bra with. This bra is almost a minimizer in this respect, and offers no cleavage enhancement at all, which is fine, but not what I'm looking for. I don't think that this will change with a smaller cup size and I'm hesitant to go smaller than a 36F to get a good fit. So this bra is going back and I'll have to try a different brand.

Fantasie Response: You might try the 36F. If the bra is gapping at the sides it should be too large. It is difficult to find a push up strapless in your cup size, but you could also try the Freya strapless Deco style 4233 for a little more “vavoom”. Jen from Lacey, WA USA

Horrid, uncomfortable, and just pushed my breasts east, west and down.

Fantasie Response: The Fantasie strapless is one of the best strapless bras out there for larger busted women. The cup does run a little full so make sure you do not need a 30F. Samantha from Canada

Following Tamima's Tip on this bra, I downsized from the 30F I usually wear to a 30E. The cup was way too small, and I had to return it. I just received the 30F and have been wearing it for a couple of days. AMAZING freedom! No bra straps digging into the shoulders, great lift, and it doesn't move at all! Also, oddly, minimizing! Will be wearing strapless under everything. (BTW, comes with straps, should you care to use them, which attach very far out on the shoulder, so that would be good with open necks.) Wish I had this bra before my shoulders became permanently indented :) Carol from Ann Arbor, MI

I ordered this bra, suspect of the rave reviews, despite their number. Strapless bras and I have never played well together! For special occasion wear, I think this will work and it opens up a lot of dress and blouse options I previously thought I did not have. I avoid any structured or "lightly lined" bras because of fear of added bulk, but this is not problematic in the 4530 - the structure is actually beneficial and one of the features that helps hoist a pair of heavy orbs northward! cjr from Illinois

The first time I ordered it I had to return it because the cup size is larger with this bra. Once I got a smaller size it is amazing for a strapless bra it never slides! Ashley from Canada

It's not easy to find a good strapless bra when you wear this size and this is the best I've found thus far. Comfy and stays put. Would have liked the cup to be a little more full under the armpit to avoid the underarm bulge, but that's the only complaint I have. Love the freedom to choose other top options again now that I found a strapless bra that fits and stays up! gcp

This was not a bra for me, but I had hoped it would be, to wear with a specific dress. The cups fit strangely and it did not provide the support needed. I've never had success with a strapless bra due to my larger bust size. But it was worth a try! I returned this item. Matilda from New York

Fantasie Response: The 4530 is a great strapless bra. Sorry it did not work for you. The cup on 4530 runs full, was it the correct size? joann from tampa fl

This was actually very comfortable and felt like it would stay up. The band size was great, but the cups were a little small for me. I thought they might be, but it was the largest cup size for a 34 band. Really wish this came in a 34GG or 34H. Astrid from Elmira NY

This is the best bra I've ever owned. It is very supportive and gives nice lift at the same time as sufficient coverage. The best part about the bra is that the back doesn't ride up at all. I have used my first one for a year and it has become comfortable enough to wear all day. M from San Francisco Bay Area, CA

Love, love, LOVE this bra. After a year of breastfeeding my poor breasts are in sad shape. I honestly didn't think any strapless bra could hoist 'em up and give me a smooth, perky silhouette. This bra did it! I am amazed! Nikki from Los Angeles, CA

I have been trying to find a strapless bra to fit me and this one didn't fit at all. I don't know if I am ordering the wrong size, I am 30E but not sure if you are suppose to order differently with strapless. The bra squished everything against me so much that everything fell over the top of the bra..not a pretty site.

Fantasie Response: Generally speaking you’d be the same size in a strapless bra as you would be in your everyday bra, but as all brands run differently it’s important to be flexible about your size. 4530 truly is one of the best strapless bras on the market, but even the most wonderful bra can’t do the job if it’s in the wrong size. It sounds to me that you need to go up one, or two, or even several cup sizes. 4530 goes up to a G-cup, so you can go up as much as you need. Bridgette from Clarence, NY, USA

I am normally a 36G. I ordered a 36F as they advised to go down a cup size, however, the cups were still too large. There was a gap at the top and it wouldn't lay flat against me. (It did not fit like the picture of the model.) Had to return it. I will try something else. It is extremely difficult to find a strapless in my size.

Fantasie Response: The 4530 runs very full in the cup and sometimes you have to go down a cup size or sometimes 2 cups if you are in-between cups sizes. You could try the Fantasie 4530 in a 36E cup and it will most likely work for you. It is a great strapless and gives lots of support; if that route doesn’t work give Freya Deco Strapless 4233 a try in a 36F. AT from Las Vegas, NV USA
