Didn't fit

My shape is low set, soft, narrow and short rooted.

This bra came through ebay from Belle Lingerie. I've wanted to try this bra (or the fantasie rebecca spacer bra) for quite some time, so I finally took the plunge. The bra was ordered about 6 weeks ago, so shipping was very slow from the UK to Canada.

The colour is a magenta/purple. It's vibrant and fun. There are tiny matching bows on the straps and gore. The shape is softly rounded, slightly minimized but not squished. The bra is very soft and the material is thin, flexible spacer foam. They are satiny feeling inside and out. If you've never tried spacer foam, it's like halfway between a padded and unpadded bra. There is a very thin lining along the cups edge which might cause cutting if the cup is too small (like with me), or if you have lots of upper fullness. I am short rooted, and I think I could wear this in the right size without any gaping. The straps are fairly standard in width, comfortably stretchy but supportive, and fully adjustable. There is a J hook on the back so you can wear this racer back style or regularly. The band and gore area have a lace on them to add something extra to the bra, but the very bottom of the lace band was very mildly irritating against my ribs when slouching. Otherwise this bra is exceptionally comfortable. The band is fairly firm and fairly true to size (maybe a touch under). I could easily wear this 30F on the tighest or loosest hook depending on the day. I could also wear a 28FF quite comfortably I believe, so I'll be watching for this to go on sale in a 28FF. The cups were too small for me, even though I'd read that this cup ran slighly large. I am a true 30F/28FF, as every time I've tried to size down thinking that I'm smaller, it backfires on me and the cup ends up being too small. Why do I keep trying? I'm not sure...

Overall pretty, comfortable, and would be great as an everyday bra.

This bra is not owned any more

    I've tried this bra in a few sizes and keep debating grabbing it for everyday wear. It's not the greatest technical fit but it's good enough and perfect for no show under thin t shirts!

  • confused yeah, I'm debating if I try it again in 28FF or even 30F. It was a little pricey, but I know if it fits in a different size, I'll probably wear it a lot (especially for work).

    I found the band a bit on the firm side if that helps. I think I might have liked the 36 best when I’m normally a 34

  • confused yes I was comfortable in a 30F, so I'd probably stick with that. I don't like uncomfortably tight bands, especially for work bras.

    Great review! It’s a shame it’s too small in the cups! This is a beautiful color. I have this bra in 30F and the band feels super firm to me! But I usually wear 32” because of my measurements. I bet if you wear a 28” you can get away with the 30” size easily. I feel like the wires on this bra are so hard though! I wish they were softer. The racerback feature is a huge plus on this bra imo.

    Spacer foam is so comfy though. It’s excellent for the summer/hot weather.

    braluv yeah, I'm sure I'd be fine with the 30" band. It felt good, and it was supportive enough for sure. I wasn't sure about the colour when I ordered it, but I like it in person/on.

  • I’ve wanted to try this one for a while but oh panache hard wires...I just seem to have troubles with them lately.

  • Calluna I'm thinking of trying it again in 30F even though the 28FF would also fit, but with the harder wires, I don't want things digging in anywhere, so a 30F would probably be safer. I wore this one just sitting in my house for about 20 minutes and it wasn't bothering me at all (usually the upper gore hurts with hard wires). I think that the gore is just low enough that it wasn't hitting my sternum in that "wrong" spot. Who knows how it would be after a whole day of wear though? It is a hard call though because I can get a Comexim for about the same you know....
