Very poor material. Very flimsy. Not at all as well constructed as it appeared on the website.

Fantsie Response: Perhaps you’re looking for a bra with a bit more “guts” to it. You might try crossing over to our Elomi brand: Elomi bras have more substantial construction for maximum support, the wire sweep is more open and the cups have more coverage on the sides to accommodate additional breast tissue. Elomi has lots of styles to choose from in your size! Elayne from Hazel Crest, IL/USA

This is a pretty good bra. It holds well and gives nice support. My only complaint is, what is with all the sheer lace on bras for full busted women? It makes it difficult to wear light colored shirts without having to put on a few layers. Summer should be interesting. Overall though, a nice bra. Rebekah from Philadelphia, PA, USA

The Helena is generally a nice bra for the smaller bust. Pros: Centered straps that don't slip, nice long straps for long torso women, & restricted stretch straps so you don't bounce. Also, doesn't dig under the arms as some bras can do. Cons: Cups not stiff enough which caused the girls to droop. I know my correct size! This bra, while pretty, just doesn't offer me enough support because the cups are not stiff enough. Sharon from Virginia

Had high hopes for this one. Good shape, good support, seam right in the middle of the boob shows through on a lot of my tops. Returned it.

Fantasie Response: As you know seams are our friends, as there’s nothing like a seam to mold, shape, and support the breast tissue. That being said, if you prefer no seams at all, Fantasie has lots of smoothing styles to choose from, with and without a foam mold. Deb from Utah

I followed the size guide for this bra and got the F, but I should have gotten the G as I normally do. It may be a good bra, but it did not work for me. Susan from NC

This bra would be beautiful on a slender person, and it looks fabulous in the photos. However, as a fat person, everything oozed over the sides; and the band is really narrow (I personally think I would love a 4-5" band that locks everything in). The bra offered no support; my nipples were quite prominent, and it looked they looked to the sides (the opposite of cross-eyed) rather than straight ahead. I didn't see a lot difference between the DD and E. (I'm despairing of ever finding a bra that I like!)

Fantasie Response: Do not despair! I’d recommend you “cross-over” to our Elomi brand which is specifically designed for the fuller figure. Elomi has more “muscle” and offers more coverage, and more support than our Fantasie brand. Elomi has lots of fabulous styles to choose from, and I know you’ll find many bras to love (and they’ll love you back!) Anon from Spokane

I need support and this bra did not offer that. Elastic straps do not help support large cup bras and it is very hard to find straps and cups that are not stretchy.

Fantasie Response: Our bras feature restricted stretch straps for ease of movement, but the fabrication in the cups is always rigid for maximum support. Many other brands have stretchy cups because it’s actually easier to “fake” a fit with cups that are forgiving, but naturally the down-side of this is an outright lack of support, and quite a “droopy” look. Because our cups are rigid, it’s possible to get that wonderful lifted and “perky” look. It’s extremely important to be in the correct size for a true custom fit. If the size is wrong it’s impossible for the bra to do the job it’s meant to do, which is to support the breast tissue.

If you’re depending on the straps too much for support, it’s an indication that the body of the bra isn’t giving you enough support: Usually it’s because the band is too large, and the cups are too small. Please ensure that the under-wires are surrounding all of the breast tissue, and that the back end of the wire is behind the breast tissue, on bone. The piece of fabric between the cups should be up against the chest wall, and the band should be snug enough to stay parallel to the floor around your torso.

If you still feel you need a style with a bit more “guts” perhaps you’d like Karina 2452, the newest addition to our Fantasie family. Karina is a gorgeous full-coverage bra with side support panels and center pull straps. The band is slightly wider than that of this 7700 for even more anchorage and support. webshopperonly from AR

Love this bra! As a petite person with a large cup size, I want pretty bras, too. This fits the bill. No digging into my sides and no bagging front. The style is pretty, even in the beige. I wore this bra before my reduction (H cup) and my husband asked why didn't I buy it anymore. Well, that was all the proof I needed that I had chosen a pretty and comfortable bra.

My only problem with this bra is that it doesn't really allow for either cleavage or low-cut shirts. It separates, but not with much lift, and the sternum part of the underwire is a little high on the breastbone.

Otherwise, it's the comfiest lace bra I've ever worn! Very little initial itch, while getting used to the new lace--and the weight of my breasts isn't put on my shoulders! Mallory from Dallas TX USA

I own four of these bras and they are number one in my drawer. Perfect fit and amazing support for seemingly little construction. Plus, the straps don't slip as they do on many other bras. As another reviewer stated, Fantasie knows the difference between full-busted and full-figured. Would love some jazzier colors too! Isabella from Virginia

The cups fit but they don't offer me much in the way of support or shaping, let alone "front projection". My breasts just seem kind of flat and sad. The straps did not feel centered at all and the seams are really conspicuous. I expect a certain amount of visibility with the kind of bras I require, but this was so obvious it probably looked like my shirt just included a random horizontal line from far away. Very disappointing. Makes me scared to try any other Fantasie styles. Joan from NJ

This bra fits great, the straps are a bit long, but you can adjust past the lace, which I did, and I love this bra, have purchased 2 more R from California

Absolutely my favorite bra ever. I have ordered it in different sizes due to weight gain/loss (mostly pregnancy related), and will do so again! You can see the seams under some fabrics, but the overall package of shape, support, and long wear is worth it imho. Abby from Ohio
