I'm a big fan of fantasie bras - the problem with this one is the wings of this bra are just very thin - and don't offer a lot of support. I would definitely purchase their products again - but wasn't a huge fan of this particular bra. Tina from levittown, PA USA

Great bra. Wire does not hurt. Cups fit and support perfectly. I honestly have never found a Fantasie bra I didn't like. Full disclosure I do have to use a connector across my back to keep the straps solidly on my shoulders. Pamela from RIDGEFIELD

This is now my favorite bra. As I was warned in my fitting, at first it will feel incredibly tight around my band, but within a few wears, it feels wonderful and remains supportive; and I'm not tugging on straps or band to keep it in place. The fabric is lovely and very appealing to look at. I also purchased the matching panties. So happy I did! Kassandra from New York

Items didn’t fit even though I went through the universal sizing guide

Fantasie Response: When searching for a great bra, it is important to note the three key points of fit. Your band should be firm and level with your rib cage. The bra’s under wires should lay flat on the body and “clear” the breast tissue under your arms, while the center gore tacks against the chest wall. A bra that does these three things will help you feel supported and confident all day long. To help you find a bra that meets these requirements we suggest visiting the HerRoom Bra Fit Center. This is a terrific resource for finding the best size and style for your bust! Lauren from United States

I am on Day 2 of wearing this bra, and it works for me. I don't spill out of the top of it. The straps are very tight and have almost zero give, but there is a lot of room for adjustability. This was off-putting at first, but now I like it because it helps the bra pass the no-bounce test. I ordered in denim and will likely order another color at some point. Andrea from Raleigh NC

This bra was really comfortable, but only lasted just over a year before the underwire popped out.

Fantasie Response: It is important to remember that a well loved bra may wear out more quickly than we’d like. Maintaining a proper bra wardrobe of 7-10 bras will help give them all a longer lifespan, and allow you to rotate through several favorites each week. You should also consider that proper sizing greatly affects a bra’s longevity. You can double check you size using the HerRoom Bra Fitting Center. Yas from Portland, OR, USA

I will absolutely purchase this in another color. Cup/band are true to size, and it holds up well for all day wear. It's a little stiff and creaky at first, but softens up as you wear it. Good coverage for a non-padded bra, and the support is amazing. Heather from TX

Love the fit and look of this bra...however the hardware attracts static electricity galore. This bra literally makes audible popping sounds from the static..

Fantasie Response: We are happy to hear you love the fit and look of Alex! If after a few wears, the issue with static electricity hasn’t subsided you may consider washing your bra with a mild fabric softener to relax the fibers a bit and lessen the sound effects. Sherilyn from Salt Lake, Utah

Was nice but the straps dug into my shoulders and my breast looked very far apart, the shape reminded me of the way bras fit in the old days.

Fantasie Response: Perhaps you would enjoy our sister brand Elomi more. We would recommend trying Morgan EL4110 which provides a super centered and uplifted look while giving amazing stable support. Danielle from Fresno

I love the fit and support of this bra! I got this one and another Fantasie bra, the Jacqueline, and both fit very similarly and I love both equally. My breasts are uplifted and separated and the shape is nice and natural. I highly recommend this bra, the Jacqueline, and the Salsa bra by Fantasie. All are similar in feel and support and shaping.

I will be sending this bra back for a larger cup size. The bra fitting site for Herroom kept giving me conflicting cup size when in the past it has always been right on. I am 28 inches around but order 30 as all the bras run too tight. Love the color and the design of this bra. Hoping I can get it in a larger cup size? Karen from California

I haven' tried the Fantasie bras in the past. I really like the Panache bras and this fits me just as well. I purchased the black and it is pretty and the support is just as good as my Panache Clara. The side supports help it feel secure and gives my larger, fuller breasts a nice shape. Very happy with this bra. Hilary

Good bra. Fits true to size (in my case 30F). The lace is pretty and modern and I LOVE that it's available in so many colors! Because of the lace it isn't ideal to wear under thin tops. The shaping is nice and natural. Very supportive with minimal double-boob/spillage, a constant problem for me. Carrie from Massachusetts

After gaining a bit of weight (including on the ribcage finally), I realized that the 28H bras I had been wearing ended up too small in the band, and too big in the cups. So, my 30G Fantasie Alex bras fit well now. Good thing I kept them! I would highly recommend this bra. It is very nice! Stephanie from Oregon

This is a nice bra, but it turns out a Curvy Kate bra (Dreamcatcher) in 28H is what fit me much better. So, for me, the 30G was too small in the cups, and much to large in the band, but I am a hard-to-find size. If you fit Fantasie bras well, you may love this. It is a high quality bra.

Fantasie Response: We're happy you found a bra that fits, even if it's not our brand. If you usually wear a 28H, it's not surprising that a 30G doesn't fit you properly, technically, you'd need a 30GG. Check out our Freya brand for super-cute options in a 28 band! You just might find more bras to love! Stephanie from Oregon

Fits very well. No spillage from sides or front of the cup. There is a sharp piece exposed but only felt when twisting clasp from belly to back side. Usually not all items are in stock and usually have to be back ordered. Could use more color choices but this girl is use to that. Will continue to order lots of this product.

I have had the hardest time finding bras! My bust is very rounded and full at the top and I spill out of the top of the cup of most bras. This bra contains all of my breast tissue nicely and is sexy to boot! My only small complaint is I am not thrilled with the shape it gives me but it isn't terrible or a reason to return. I am so desperate I am just happy to have something that fits and supports and is comfortable. Paula from Pennsylvania

This is the first bra that fits correctly and is pretty. I hope the underwire does not fall out like the 8 other bras I have purchased. Beautiful craftsmanship and I love your bras but all 8 have only lasted seven to ten months and I hand wash them in cold or warm water as I was instructed, but the wire falls out. Octavia

Nice bra, but just not the right shape for me. Not as supportive as I would like. Not sure why it isn't as supportive, it just is not.

Fantasie Response: The 9152, Alex is a beautiful Twenties inspired design that offers side support and forward projection. Due to the fact it is unmoulded, the shape will be more natural. If looking for a rounded shape, please try our Rebecca Moulded Spacer Underwire Bra or even the Smoothing Collection. If you are feeling that the band is loose or not giving any support, please try a 34F instead. Most times going down in the band and up in the cup solves many problems. Sarah from Seattle

This bra fits exactly like the Fantasie Samantha that is being discontinued. It is a little higher cut in the center and sides, and is made with a softer fabric. It still gives the nice shape and support I like, and is comfortable to wear. I am glad for a bra to replace the Samantha, but I am very short and narrow shouldered, so I do miss the lower cut.

The band could have been a bit tighter. I have uneven breasts, and would prefer to order up a size in this bra because it causes spillage with the bigger breast. The top portion of the bra was already gapping with the smaller breast. MJ from VA
