    30J

    Didn't fit

    This bra is wrong in every way for me in theory but I find myself, at the beginning of my bra journey, reaching for it often. It's supportive and comfortable and on me gives a kind of pointy east-west silhouette, which I honestly don't mind as much as others appear to, but I usually wear vintage clothes. I'm a moron and accidentally bought a bunch of UK J-cup bras (I measured myself at a US J) but this one fit well enough to keep. It's not very FOT-friendly, and I can't tell if the bottoms of the cups are bunching up because the cups are too big or because my boobs are scrunching the fabric down.

    Didn't fit

    I find myself reaching for Alex a lot because it is incredibly comfortable. However, this bra does not fit. There are many, many issues with it for me, most of them, I believe, stemming from the fact that my breast tissue is very very soft.

    Usually 32 bands work great for me, but it's something about the fabric they used for this band that is weird. Some days, it will work fine and not ride up on loosest hook, other days, I have to fasten it on the tightest hook. Most days, I wear it on the middle hook. The band stretched out fairly fast, I'm talking within hours.

    The ... cup is really sturdy at the bottom and has great lift. It has three vertical seams on the bottom, with the most outer one going all the way to the top (the side support feature), and a horizontal seam where the lace connects. That being said, the cups will give you more of a east-west than front and center shape. This doesn't bother me with Alex. It looks pretty nice and has a somewhat minimising effect. The 'side support' seam will cut into my tissue when I lift my arms, and give me some vertical in cup quadding, lol.
    The real issue with the cups for me is the lace. It's non-stretch tulle with beautiful geo embroidery. Unfortunately, the change of tension between the lace and embroidery makes for the weirdest cutting in I've ever seen on me. I believe on firm breasts this bra fits beautifully. On mine... not so much.
    The cups are also a little too closed and on top of lace cutting in (even where it fits), I get some quad boob (especially on my larger side).
    I highly doubt any of these issues would be solved with going up in cup.
    That being said none of this is uncomfortable, just doesn't look good and is very very obvious under anything but thick sweaters and hoodies.

    The shape of wires I do love. It must be in the way Fantasie does wire channels but holy crap they are comfortable. The gore is really wide and tall. I do find that the very top will sit on my breast tissue at times, but not after I do the gore scoop and swoop. I can see this being a problem for pretty much anyone who doesn't have at least 2, maybe even 3 fingers between their breasts.

    The thick straps are very comfortable, and I can adjust them as long as I need.

    So overall, even if Alex doesn't fit, I still wear it whenever I don't feel like fussing about my looks. It's just so comfy :(. Because of Alex, I've bought two other Fantasie bras trying to find a similar fit, minus the weird cutting in. Unfortunately, that did not work.

    30G

    Didn't fit

    Yessssssss! What a gorgeous, gorgeous bra. Well made, nice materials, looks beautiful, and fits comfortably. What more could you ask?? I definitely need to size up to a 30GG in this one. I fill out the 30G well but my upper fullness creates a weird bulge within the top lace, due to the closed in seam/lack of stretch lace. I will send it back for a size up because even at the wrong size I can tell this bra is amazing.

    • I have this in two different colors pink and blue and like them both. I just don’t like the seam to show through my shirt. But, you are correct, very comfortable.

    This bra looks good quality and a simple beige colour. The cup is made of four parts, the bottom three parts being a slightly stretchy fabric, and the lace is not stretchy. The band is also made of one layer of thick jersey. The straps are fully adjustable, and they have a design on top. The straps also continue on the band in the back.
    Since the bra is not in my size range, I cannot judge the fit, but the cups seem to be quite deep.

    Very pretty violet color and comfortable - wires don't go up too high. Too small for me in the cups.

    Fits

    This was one of the only brands / styles of unpadded bras that fit my FOB, shallow, wide roots almost as if it had been made for them. I didn't think it was going to work and didn't have high hopes when I first saw it (especially after having failed to fill in the top of unpadded Freyas and Curvy Kates in the same size), but it fit to perfection. I originally purchased the aqua color on eBay for a good price and was so excited I went back and bought a brown one too. I've had to restrain myself from buying it in every colorway! (Guess I got a little excited to finally find an unpadded bra that actually works for my difficilt to fot shape.) My only wish is that the upper lace area was lined underneath, because it definitely won't work under thinner shirts or during cold Midwestern winters. Ah well...

    30GG

    Didn't fit

    Me: Narrow roots, narrow shoulders, evenly round, lots of immediate projection, very soft tissue, slightly FoB, slightly centre full, splayed, never met a gore I didn't like, left-heavey by more than a cup size, 31" underbust, but prefer tight band with extender. Panache, Freya size 30GG

    I keep trying Fantasie side supports because I like the shape, but they really are too wide and shallow for me in general. This is the best fit I've found: it has lots of immediate projection and accepts centre fullness - it soft tacks, but it is but wearable. However, the straps cut in on my smaller side even ... with the cookie, and the shape is pretty minimized and slightly upsidedown seven.

    Straps are ribbed and scalloped and fully adjustable. No side boning, but good firm wires with taller centre gore and wings. Three hooks, but set at 2 cm so a little harder on my North American extenders. Cups and frame are no-stretch, but a little give on the bias, nylon with two layer no-stretch mesh on the top part. The back of the band is stretch. I got the "Violet" colour which is a deep blue purple.

    Didn't fit

    There are no obvious fit issues, and it's a beautiful bra - I love the color and the lace. Unfortunately, I hate the shape. It actually seems to push my boobs downward, creating and the seam of the side support panel creates a weird groove in the side of my breast, almost like wearing wires that are too narrow. I get the impression it just doesn't scale up that well in G+ cups.
