This bra is supportive and sexy. That is hard to find in larger cup sizes. Melissa from Ohio

Cups fit great, wish the straps weren't elastic, would have better support without elastic. Jill from Bensalem, Pa

After losing a significant amount of weight, I was left with what HerRoom refers to as “pendulous” or “deflated upper” breasts. I also have a significant amount of “breast tissue” under my arms and along my back (i.e., fat and flab). I have probably tried on close to 100 bras over the last couple of years and can’t begin to tell you how difficult it was for me to find one that fits properly, let alone one that flatters. Molded and contoured bras are out; my breasts simply settle at the bottom of the bra leaving the top largely empty while most other bras do nothing more than contain what I already have. It wasn’t until I read about seamed bras on the HerRoom site that I decided to give them a shot and among these, there a limited few that not only do the job but actually flatter my breasts. The Fantasie Helena is one of these bras. After so many failures and countless dollars spent, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I put on this bra. My breasts are beautifully contained and attractively projected, lifted beyond my wildest expectations, and are well-rounded. The fat and flab under my arms is mitigated and the tissue is nicely coaxed toward the front. Back fat is minimized and there are no telltale signs that a bra is present, i.e., it doesn’t dig into the tissue. I think part of the success of this bra has to do with the vertical seam; it provides even more lift than other bras of this type. In addition, the sides are relatively “tall” allowing underarm flab to be smoothed out and adjusted forward. Whatever the reasons, this bra fits like a dream and truly allows me to wear body skimming clothes again; my pendulous breasts no longer prevent me from showing off a bit. There are other bras I have found – in different price ranges – that provide similar benefits. These include the Lilyette Enchantment 3 Section Embellished Underwire Bra 432 (one of my very favorites at $27), the Freya Rio Balcony Bra (This is one fabulous bra. It’s been discontinued so grab it if you can at $54), the Lunaire Whimsy Barbados Sexy Basic Bra 15211 ($28), and the Carnival Full Figure Floral Lace Bra 511 ($21). Trust me; all is not lost for those of us with pendulous breasts! Deborah from Alexandria, VA, USA

Excellent quality. However it is just too difficult to tell a lot about the item from the picture and it's not really my style. I'm tired of trying to exchange through the mail so I'll keep it because it fits. It doesn't go well under the tank tops I wear all the time so I wear it only to work. Also I would have liked a thin padding for modesty. andrea from tx

This bra fits comfortably. The straps stay in place and have not had any tendency to slide looser. The only thing I don't really like about it is it tends to pull a bit right at the edge of the lace. It doesn't leave a smooth round breast shape. Other than that I really do like how comfortable it is and will continue to wear it. Lezlie from Texas

I bought this same bra quite a number of years ago at a lingere shop in the St. Petersburg/Tampa area - it fits just as well now as it did then and I was very happy to find it without having to make a trip somewhere to get it. Perfect fit for me - and really beautiful too! Thanks! Karren from Tallahassee, FL USA

I purchased this same bra in an expensive bra shop along with three other styles and found this style to be the best. It is feminine, comfortable and supportive. Yeah! Lynn from Mystic CT

I recently ordered and received this bra and was delighted with the fit, support and comfort. No muffin top, just perfect feminine shaping that holds the girls up where they belong. As it turns out, I already had this bra -- purchased several years ago and somehow it had gotten lost in another drawer. I'd almost given up on finding a 36DD that could give real support and look beautiful in the process. What a find! I'll never misplace it again. Liz from Ohio

This bra is my new favorite bra. I love the added bit of lace. This bra offers support, lift and comfort with a smooth line, no flesh over hang on the back. Kathy from Dunedin, FL

True fit and very pretty. A tiny bit scratchy where the bows are on the straps in the front of the bra. This would not be my every day bra, not quite comfortable enough, but definitely worth having in my undie wardrobe. Marti from Bangor, Maine

This is a very pretty bra. It doesn't have extremely firm support but still a good bra. True to size and comfortable. It would be better if the band were a little wider.

Fantasie Response: Glad you like it! There are lots of other styles in Fantasie and Freya to add to your bra wardrobe on HerRoom! Lucky for you we carry lots of choices in your 36GG (36 D7) size. You could also try some of the elomi styles as well and the bands tend to be a little wider than the Fantasie styles. The elomi bra 8030 caitlyn is a great supportive style.

If I were a lot younger I'd probably love it. But at this age I don't go for that much cleavage.

FantasieResponse: The Helena bra is a great style and fits fuller than most of our other styles. It sounds like the cup is too small if you are having too much cleavage. You could try a 38D2. Vivian from Los Angeles CA USA

Comfortable, girlie, and supportive which surprised me with only two hooks in back. My husband thought it was sexy as well. Susan from Utah

It was too small for me, so I returned it.

Fantasie Response: You probably need to go up to a 32E or F depending on how small the cup was. Laura

I really like this bra although the band and the straps are a bit stretchy. I also should have gotten a smaller band size.... But other than that it's beautiful and holds the twins where they need to be. I'd definitely recommend this bra but you should go down a band size and in turn up a cup size.

A beautiful bra - I got the one in nude and the detailing is lovely. It fits smoothly under my thinner, light-toned shirts. The straps adjust very well to fit my skinny shoulders. The cups, however, seem to run a little larger than a normal 'F' or 'DDD' - they're a touch baggy at the tops and I sometimes have to re-adjust myself to center everything. Other than the cups it is a snug and very comfortable fit. Brock from Texas

This bra has just enough lift without the look of overfilling the cup!! I am in love with this bra because it's the perfect fit. Sherilynn from Atlanta

I'm a big fan of the Fantasie line of bras and this bra is no exception. The lace texture does show through most shirts, but it is nice looking and but I knew what I was in for (I have several other "smooth" bras for that reason). The lace on mine is a little loose, something I attribute more to my own mistake (not noticing it when I first tried it on), so I had to order the next cup size down, too. The underwire supports well on the side and keeps everything up and at 'em (something I really needed after I finished nursing a few months ago and gravity set in!). Overall, a supportive, comfortable, attractive bra--just not for those thin t-shirt days :). Laura from South Bend, IN
