The Fantasie Smoothing bra is SO comfortable and well made, that when it didn't fit me I just wanted to cry. The lower cups fit perfectly, as did the wire diameter and band, but the upper cups had awful vertical wrinkling. The cups are shaped such that you MUST have very full, round breasts (or fakes) for them to fit properly. Pay attention to the reviews and fitter's comments so you won't be in for disappointment!

That being said, this is a superbly well constructed and again, super comfortable bra. The cup material is not like most molded cups I've seen. Material on this type of bra is usually thin and very stretchy. On this bra, however, the fabric has very little stretch and is actually pretty tough. I can tell that it would offer great support and smoothness in the right size. Easy to see how this would be a hit. Unfortunately I ordered the smallest size offered so I'm out of luck. Such a bummer. :-(

Fantasie Response: We’re so sorry this bra didn’t work for you. You are quite correct, in order for this bra to work, it helps to have the three F’s: Full, firm or fake. Also, this bra is absolutely terrific if you have a short upper torso (not a lot of room from underneath the breast to the shoulder). It sounds like you are a very petite frame. You might like our Freya Deco 4234: It’s extremely plungey and sexy and gives a very natural, rounded look… soft, yet so supportive, wonderful for the petite gal! Sara from Buffalo

Love the lightweight feel of this bra as compared to the 4510. I only wish it had better nipple coverage. LB from Atlanta, GA

SO happy I finally have a bra that fits!!! Try it, you will not regret it. Thin bra so no added bulk, but minimal show through (nipples). With a medium-dark top it isn't even noticeable. Happy from NW Arkansas

This has great shape, shorter underwire so no poke on a smaller frame... feels natural, like I'm not wearing anything yet I'm fully supported. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Wow...could not believe how well this bra fit and I am a fitters nightmare. My breasts are as heavy as bowling balls so support is important to me. It normally takes me a long time to find a bra that fits well so I am delighted! Mahalie from San Jose, CA, USA

The cups didn't fit well. I also bought the Fantasie Molded Smooth Cup and the cups fit perfectly, so I was surprised by the difference. Elastic straps allowed too much bounce for my taste.

Fantasie Response: Unfortunately, Fantasie #4520 isn’t for everybody… If you like a contour cup you have lots of choices in Fantasie 4510, 2132 and 2222 –all different from one another, with something fabulous to offer for everyone. Sarah from Bosie/Idaho/USA

Unfortunately the DD in this brand is a true DD. The cups are very small, width wise compared to my other DD bras from HerRoom. The underwires do not stay in place and shift towards the center causing painful poking. For a balcony bra there wasn't much in the way of lifting. A very disappointing purchase.

HerRoom Response: It does sound like the cups are too small to contain all of the breast tissue. In order for the bra to be able to give lift and support, all of the breast tissue needs to be surrounded by the under-wire.

Fantasie Response: Perhaps you would prefer a contour cup bra: Fantasie offers 4510, 2222, and 2132. I would recommend going up one or two cup sizes –but NOT a band size! Note: We offer a very specific fit, so if you are accustomed to wearing U.S. brands it’s not going to be unusual to go up in the cup size in a UK brand… Never be afraid to go up in the cup as generally, most of us are wearing our cups too small in the first place.

Finally, I have found a bra that fits! And even better, its comfortable too! I can wear this all day and I feel great and secure, I think I even look a little smaller now that I am wearing a bra that keeps me in the right places. I am just so pleased that I found Fantasie and they have sizes for small girls with big chests! The only reason why I took them down 1 star is because I hadn't realized that the bra did not have any padding to avoid nipple show through. Regardless I intend to try more of the Fantasie brand, and might even buy another 4520. Thank you! Halee from Arkansas

Finally!!! A bra that fits. So many years trying to stuff myself in store size bras. Never again. This is my first, but not last bra from Fantasie. Straps are wide apart, and are perfect under a boat neck shirt. Even though wide, they don't slip or slide off. Perfect... Nameless from Midwest, US

This one didn't work for my, shall we say, gravity-affected shape. If you imagine the cups are divided into quadrants, the upper outside quadrant of the cups (the part where the straps attach) wrinkled badly as if the cups were too large, but in the upper center quadrant, I think I would have spilled over had I gone with a smaller cup size. Tried repositioning, etc, but no luck. Also, the lift effect was not as good as with the contour-cup style I like from another manufacturer. It may be that molded cup bras like this one just aren't up to the job in my case, and I need to stick with contour cup bras.

Fantasie Response: 4520 is one of our favorite bras, but it’s not for everyone. Usually you need the “three Fs” for this one: Full, Firm, and Fake (‘fake’ meaning implants)... Also if one has a short upper torso (not much room from the underside of the breast to the shoulder) this bra is amazing! You might want to try our newest Fantasie contour cup T-shirt bra Rhiannon. It’s a very easy fit, with a subtle fashionable print, and so lifted and supportive! If you were wearing a 32F in 4500 (from your previous review on 4500) you would need a 32E in 4520.

Hands down, best bra I've found. It holds, lifts and also gives nice cleavage that isn't over the top for everyday life. If I want deeper cleavage, I sometimes wear a more padded bra, but I don't like adding padding and appearing even larger. I feel it runs just slightly large...it's the only bra I own that I need a DD instead of a D. (Usually a 34D). The two things I'd love to change - I wish it looked a bit sexier...but I'll give that up for function. And, the straps are kind of large and unattractive - but I realize they are part of why it is such a great supportive bra. I just wish they were a little more attractive and for when I want to wear a tank or shirt that they may show a bit. Laura from Oakland County, MI

This is the best everyday bra for busty girls such as myself. It looks great under clothes, lasts forever and isn't full of padding and stiffeners and nonsense. I've been buying these bras for 4 years now and have owned probably 12 or more of them in varying colors. Awesome! taylor from California

My all-time favorite everyday bra. Provides great coverage without added bulk. I prefer this to the 4510 -- it feels much more lightweight and invisible. Compared to the 4500, this one gives me a nicer, more rounded shape and has a lower neckline and center. I can wear it under most low cut and V-neck tops! Sadie from New York, NY

I LOVE this bra. I have had very large breasts since i was 16 (very large being bigger than a DDD) and it was so hard to find a bra that supported me, didn't try and flatten me and didn't have any shaping or padding (I sure don't need it). I have been wearing this style bra for 4 years now and I love it and will continue buying them for a very long time. They are comfy but when paired with sexy panties look as if they belong to a set. Love it! Jennifer from Woodridge, IL

This is the BEST bra ever. I actually use it as a nursing bra - I just drop the strap and peel the cup back. (I have a friend who converts it using a nursing bra clip and elastic) I've tried them all. Soft cup, underwire, cone shaped, molded, seamed, etc and nothing out there on this side of the pond offers as much support or shaping for my poor, tired, overworked breasts. I'm 5'7" - but short in torso - broad shouldered and have a 1 cup discrepancy between sides. The underwire doesn't stab me in the underarms, the straps sit perfectly on my shoulders and this company understands that a G or H cup does NOT mean a 44 band! If you are large busted, give it a try. You'll love this bra. Melissa from Dallas, TX
