A marvel of engineering! How did they do it? This bra stays up and provides great support. Most times I wasn't even aware that I was wearing it! Great if you want to wear a dress, blouse or shirt without your straps showing. Barbara from New York

The only strapless I found that actually held me up and in place. The bra didn't slip down as the night went on. Perfect! Connie from Beaumont, TX USA

Best supporting bra ever!!! Great shape and structure. I wear regularly even when not needing to wear a strapless. Not desirable for deep v or low cut. Katie from Baton Rouge, LA

The best strapless bra EVER! Expensive, but totally worth it. It can be worn all day without discomfort and some how manages to make me perky! Cortney

The comments suggested going down a cup size so I did, this was not a good choice fore me. The bra likely would have been too small if I had ordered my regular size, choosing an FF was not right for me. Thankfully customer service at HerRoom is amazing, and someone helped me find a strapless 32GG that I hope be getting back in the mail soon! Halee from Arkansas,US

I have to say that this strapless is a very great bra but I purchased the wrong sized. I've lost weight in my back but not in my cup size and it just fit as snug as the first one I bought. Tawanda from Brooklyn

My bra size is not typical of my body size, so needless to say I could never find bra's to fit for every occasion, until now. AND.... its strapless. It provides full coverage and it stays put whether running or dancing. I love it! akward from dfw

I needed a strapless bra to wear with a strapless dress. Having larger breasts I knew that this would be a difficult task. I first ordered this bra in a 38E, which was too large in band size and slightly too large in cup size. I then returned the bra for a 36E, which was fine in the band size but slightly too small in the cups. I found this bra to be very un-supportive and very uncomfortable.

HerRoom Response: When you went from a 38E to a 36E you also went down in the cup size. A 36F would have kept the same cup volume.

Fantasie Response: I think a 36F in this style would fit you perfectly. Also please remember to “swoop-and-scoop” the breast tissue from the back to the front to fill the cups: This step is vital for any bra in any brand to fit properly and to give you the full benefits of support!

After reading many reviews on this bra and being the owner of several Fantasie 30F bras, I ordered this strapless in 30F and 30E (suggested to order a size down since runs large)...I am thoroughly disappointed! There is no anti-slip material running around it to keep it from slipping down (almost a standard in other strapless bras) and my chest was overflowing from the cups being too small. I was really excited that I may have finally found a strapless since the regular bras fit like a glove. For anyone around this size, I went all over the mall and found one in a department store - JC Penney's private label. I fit into a 34DD (wish they had 32) but it has that anti-slip lining all the way around it and no overflow...it comes with 2 sets of straps also for approximately $32. I will continue buying all of my other bras from HerRoom - already have a few saved that I am planning on purchasing. Fantastic selection and prices!!!

FantasieResponse: We’re so sorry to hear you’re disappointed in this bra, as usually we hear nothing but kudos for this style. The cups in 4530 are generous so it’s puzzling that the bra was so small for you… If a strapless bra truly fits you, it should stay up and in place without relying too much on anti-slip lining, but as it happens 4530 does have gripper elastic on the top of the band to help with anchorage and support. 4530 goes to a G cup so it’s easy to go up in the cup until you find the perfect fit.

I ordered this bra for my daughter who needed it for a strapless dress. It is great. It comes up high enough and has great coverage and support. She is very pleased with it. As you know finding a good strapless bra in that size is quite a challenge. Amy from Weston, CT

This bra fits perfectly. The Fabric is kind of weird but i still like it. For a Strapless bra this bra holds good. Great Support. C. from Stanford, CA

I ordered many, many strapless bras from here in the hopes of finding one for underneath my wedding dress. This one was the closest to what I wanted. I love the seamless cups and the shape they gave. The issue I have with this bra is that the 30E (which is the size I wear in the 4510) was waaay too small, and the 30F covers waaaay too much. The center gore hits very high, so I can't wear it with anything low cut. However, I did feel secure in the bra and didn't have to adjust it once during my wedding. mab from FL

Be careful with sizing, I'm a 30GG but I wear a 32FF in this one. It is a great bra though, I have 3 and I wear them all the time. Great for tanks but I still wear it under t shirts too. Awesome support & coverage. Elise from Virginia

I've had this bra for over a year and this was my second one...purchased from HerRoom cause of FANTASTIC price! This bra fits well, lifts, supports, has a nice seamless finish for t-shirts, etc. Shoulder straps do dig if the back band isn't adjusted tight enough (or after lots of months of wearing and back band has stretched...all bras do this I figure...and if it's come to this point, then time for a new bra). I love that this bra can be worn so many ways as straps cross over, one strap, etc. etc.! I would like to buy it in black sometime, but for now stuck with nude. Shelley from BC Cda

I will start by saying that this is the 2nd time I've reviewed this bra - I didn't like it the first time I tried it, but my bra size has changed since then, so I decided to try it again because it's so highly recommended.

I must say, I am shocked that this bra is so popular - I think it's completely horrible. It is so wide in the center that it comes up above where my breast tissue begins and completely covers my sternum. It comes up to about 1.5" below my collar bone. (I am 5'4") This bra also comes up too high on the sides for me, and flattens my chest and pushes my boobs apart.

I am 30E in 'regular (non-strapless)' Fantasie bras & 28F in Freya. In this bra, the 30E was too small in the cups, 30F 'fit' me, but I returned it because of the issues above.

Overall, this bra was completely uncomfortable, unwearable, and unflattering. Yes, the model looks fabulous in it, but girls it will not give you that great cleavage, I'm sorry to disappoint.

I recommend Panache3370 - Porcelain Strapless - which is a much prettier, comfortable, and better fitting bra than this.

Fantasie Response: It sounds as if you have a short "upper torso". (Very little room from underneath the bust to the shoulder). #4530 DOES have a relatively broad center gore in order to support those robust G cups with "confidence". It might very well be that this bra is just too tall for your figure type. At the moment we don't have an alternative strapless frame available for this cup size. But stay tuned for the debut of our new Freya strapless in January 2011. This bra has a plunging neckline, and maximizes cleavage - VERY sexy! It should be perfect for your needs! Ali from TX

I love this bra. I am a natural 32E and this bra had no problems keeping the girls up. The bra stayed in place all evening. Unlike every other strapless bra I've had I wasn't constantly pulling the bra back up into place. Helen from Fort Worth, TX

Bra did not fit due to too large cups. And it seemed to separate the "girls" too much (they looked too spread apart). I ordered the Panache strapless and it fit better and looked more natural.

Fantasie Response: Fan4530 does run generously in the cups. Very often we recommend going down in the cup in this style which means you’d wear a 32FF. I’m not surprised 'the girls' looked too spread apart, that’s a clear indication you might need a smaller cup. Kelly from Illinois

I absolutely LOVE the way this bra feels. Both the black and beige bras fit the same. Thank you so much. I will definitely order more strapless bras and encourage my friends/loved ones to do the same. They're a bit pricey, but well worth the money! Roxanne from Los Angeles/CA/USA

I wore this bra without the straps for a trial run a few nights ago. Although it's true that the bra doesn't slip, I did find that on me -- using the tightest hooks -- it settled in a spot about a half-inch lower than I would have liked, giving me a slightly lower bust line. I ordered a 34DD, which is my normal size. I guess this is just one of the risks of mail order, since in a store I might have tried the 32DD for comparison. Still, I gave the bra 4*s -- it really does give you a great shape. Kathy from New York, USA

Loved this bra.....I have bought so many strapless bras only to be disappointed, but this bra fits great, is comfortable and doesn't slip down. I forget I have a strapless bra on. This is a first for me. Will definitely buy this bra again!!! Gloria from Houston

This wasn't quite right for me, it supported very well but I didn't find it flattering. The cups fit perfectly with no spillage, but there was a dent at the top of the bra that was obvious through clothes. I'm not sure if I have a sizing problem with freya/fantasie: with their plunge bras, the 30 band is awesome and fits perfectly, but in styles where the center gore comes up higher, I feel like there is a lot of pressure from the wires on my sternum and it's uncomfortable. When I was fitted recently they told me I was for sure a 30 band. I didn't want to get a larger band here because it is strapless and I didn't want it to slip. In the end I exchanged for the B'Temptd 954108, I liked the push-up for strapless dresses. It's a little big in the band because it doesn't come in a 30, but still does the trick.

Fantasie Response: #4530 usually works for almost everyone. As always it’s so important to bring the breast tissue forward in front of the under-wire, so the entire breast sits in the cup. This will usually take care of any ‘dent’ in the cup as well. With a 30” back you’ll have a very “petite” frame, so you won’t really want a lot of “center front” coverage. It’s not surprising you’re more comfortable in a style that’s lower cut. BTW there are lots of “plungey” styles to choose from in Fantasie and Freya! Erika from Northampton, MA USA
