This Fantasie Caroline Plunge Bra was one of two bras that I got in the mail today in size UK30FF. This Bra is lovely with its beautiful design, fabric and construction but unfortunately the Bra isnt right for me. After black lingerie, delicate pink florals are my next favorite choice. I find this bra so pretty, and wish it fit me.
The 3 part construction reminds me of my other Fantasie Bra (Fusion 30G) The wires are less firm and uncomfortable than my Fusion, but still firmer than the underwire of some other bras I own. The construction of the cups brings my breasts forward which isn't bad. The cups shape isn't ideal for me, it feels like it's wide and tall at the wrong places and narrow in others. It's not super uncomfortable, but its not very flattering on me either. The top of the cups is kind of closed in so there's not much for cleavage on me (despite this being a Plunge style) I also feel like because I am petite and my shoulders are narrow, it can can change up how the Bra sits. I pulled the Bra straps outwards farther than where they sit comfortably on my shoulders and it changed the fit of the Bra cups..The straps aren't too far apart or too close together, I am under 4 ft 9 and my ribcage has more depth than width so proportionally I think my narrow body and short stature just changes how it sits on me. This is a 30 band worn on the tightest setting, 28 bands are much better but it's so much easier to find the larger size that sometimes I go for it and pray the band is firm. The Band works for now but with much wear it would stretch and put strain on my shoulders. This bra is lovely and probably looks great on others but unfortunately it is not the Bra for me so J will likely rehome this one. The Freya Bra from today fit better at least so I am not too bummed.
