This bra has no padding, and therefore no shaping. Not the type of bra I am looking for as a 24 year old. I wasn't aware of that when I ordered. The cup also fit strange, with extra material that stuck out on the side. Maybe this bra works well for others, but it definitely was not for me. Happy bra shopping!

Fantasie Response: It’s obvious that you’re looking for a bra with a foam mold –which also helps with the “modesty factor”. You might want to try these Fantasie foam mold T-shirt styles: Fantasie 4510 , a classic T-shirt bra; Rhiannon 2222 , which features a Roman-inspired script print and is cut slightly lower in front than 4510 ; or Ava 2132 , which is cut lower still, and has gorgeous Swiss guipure detailing on the straps –a very special luxury touch! You might also love our Freya T-shirt bra which is sexy and plungey down to there! So you have lots of styles to choose from! Morgan from Wisconsin

I originally ordered this bra in a 34E, going off the size conversion chart (I am a 34DDD). When I got it, it was too small in the cups. I exchanged it for a 34F and I LOVE IT! The straps are fully adjustable, which is great for us short girls. This bra works well with low necklines. I love that the girls are held up front and center! I will be buying more of these in the future! LOVE IT!!!!! Leigh Anne from PA

I am between sizes F & G. I bought F which fits good but I spill over just a little in the center. I'm keeping this one and ordering another one in G cup. I have full breasts (real) so this is a really good fit for me. The price is reasonable. Yelena from Brooklyn/NY/USA

This is the first bra that gives me lift and coverage, the straps are very comfortable. one thing, I wish the straps would be slightly in more on the shoulder. My 22 yr old daughter told me the bra also makes me look thinner. Thanks I think I'll try more of fantasie bras. denise from auburn/ca/usa

Love it! Most comfortable bra I've ever had. I've been wearing the wrong size for years and this one finally fits. This is the only bra I've had which the underwires don't painfully poke me, or leave marks between my boobs or under my arms. Seriously, I can hardly tell I have it on, and I LOVE how it's only a two-hook closure on the back, which is a big deal to a large-breasted women. Now I just need more colors! Liane from Indiana, USA

The cup size of this bra was three sizes too small. I found the same to be true with a second garment - different brand. I wonder if these bras are just mismarked. I have ordered new sizes and will see if they are more in keeping with what I would expect in a 36F.

HerRoom Response: We would suggest you look at our Conversion chart to find your correct size in this brand. You say you are a 36DD, but you ordered a 36F which is 2 cup sizes larger. Betsy from Gilboa, NY

I really wanted this bra to work, but neither I nor my daughter could fill it out properly. The full-cup style is just too large for our lower-hanging, bottom-heavy shape, even in our large cup sizes; there just isn't enough tissue on top to fill the full cup. I suspect it would work well for rounder shapes.

Fantasie Response: 4520 works best on busts that have one or more of the “Three Fs” (Full, Firm, or Fake). It’s also a wonderful bra for those ladies who have a short upper torso, meaning not much room from the underside of the breast to the shoulder. Please remember to swoop and scoop the breast tissue from the back to the front to fill the cups: This step is vitally important to ensure the proper fit of any bra in any brand. 4500 is a full-cup style and runs a full cup size larger than 4520, so maybe this style would work a cup size smaller… Alternatively, you might want to try our 4510, a basic foam-molded T-shirt bra. If you’re looking for something with a bit more fashion, and a sassy lower center front, try our Rhiannon T-shirt bra #2222. Deanna from CA

Looked good out of the package but the band size was slightly large, I'm closer to a 38 than a 40 so it's difficult sometimes to find a good fit. The cup size was small, in this brand I normally wear a 38ff and this was an experiment. However, for all larger busted women, the straps were thin, stretchy and unsupportive even if the size were correct. I returned both bras this week and will keep on trying to find a t-shirt bras as well as one that hooks in the front for pending shoulder surgery.

Fantasie Response: Very often I go down in the band in this style, and you’re correct, if you’re accustomed to wearing a fuller coverage cup bra, the cups in 4520 can seem a bit smaller as it’s a lower cut balcony shape. If you’re looking for more support all ‘round, perhaps you’d like style 3911 in our Elomi brand. It too is a smooth T-shirt bra without a foam mold, but the cup provides fuller coverage, the band is a bit wider, and the straps are thicker and firmer to give the ultimate support and comfort.

Fits very well if you are a large cup, but small in the frame. It gives you full coverage with foam lining that prevents any embarrassing moments in a highly air conditioned room. G from NY, NY

I had to send the bra back - unfortunately! To me, "molded" meant molded cup, and it was not. Trying to replace 4515 bra, which, again unfortunately, has been discontinued.

Fantasie Response: 4520 is a seam-free molded cup bra without a foam mold which many customers who do not want anything “extra” prefer. Fantasie 4515 which you love has a foam mold which helps with the modesty factor. The great news is that we have a bra in the Fantasie collection which is built on exactly the same frame as 4515! It’s a gorgeous T-shirt bra called Rhiannon style 2222. This bra features a subtle print and comes in Nude, so it’s perfect under even the most unforgiving of tops. Nitia, if you’re pining for 4515, I know you’ll love Rhiannon! Nitia from Dallas, TX USA

I love this product and have been purchasing them from a specialty store for a few years. When I just had my 3rd baby, it makes things much harder to get to the store to try on and be fitted. I found these online and was so happy to order them. I knew they would fit great. I even use them while nursing. It would take a LOT to make me switch to and wear another type of bra. These are great for lifting and separating. SERIOUSLY! I love them. Aimee from Sibley, MO USA

I was professionally fitted with this bra three years ago and this is still my favorite go-to bra. I continue to try other bras by Fantasie and always come back to this for proper lift and shape. I do wish that there were more color offerings, though. Tiffany from Marlborough, MA

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

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
