    About this Bra

    Purchasing:
    * $34.94 on Amazon with free Prime shipping & returns (not Amazon Wardrobe)
    * available in non-neutral colors

    Band:
    * One layer of stretch opaque knit.
    * Elastic at top of band.
    * Wing support: soft seaming.
    * Continuous band - wires lower than wings.
    * Back close with 3 columns of hooks.

    Straps:
    * ridged elastic
    * stiff (stand up on their own)
    * full adjust
    * leotard back

    Cups:
    * 3-seam (4-piece) half-cup
    * unpadded, stiff underwire
    * Upper panel is non-stretch lace (unlined).
    * Lower panels are non-stretch opaque knit (unlined).
    * Soft cups (no padding or molding).


    Fit

    About me: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
    * average projection
    * wide-set (3 fingers width of space between breasts)
    * very wide roots (extend ... past the mid-axillary line)
    * even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
    * short root height, average vertical placement
    * mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
    * conical shape (but will squish to round)
    * full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
    * petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
    * front (anterior) rib flares

    Band:
    * length: way too big
    * wings: too short, boobs escape
    * no axillary skin spillage

    Gore: Comfortable, tacks, good spacing, height fine.

    Cups:
    * Cups far too big. Fabric only covers breasts and provides no shaping.
    * Wires wide enough (SO RARE).
    * Could fit a full fist inside the cup.

    Straps:
    * too far apart, slip
    * adjust short enough

    Comfort & Fit Summary
    * I tried this bra because it is recommended for side support and center pull straps. I should have looked at the pictures first because they are NOT center-pull straps. I can't speak to side support since the band & cups were way too big.
    * I chose this size based off a measurements search here on bratabase. I used my _leaning_ horizontal perimeter to predict cup depth and that was a bad idea. Laying horizontal perimeter is a better predictor (or somewhere between the two measurements).
    * I don't know what I was thinking when ordering a 36 band. The measurements table shows it would be far too big for my rib cage and it is right.
    * Ordered a 36E (same band, one cup larger) at the same time (reviewed separately) -- so I didn't just click the wrong size. Who knows what I was thinking!
    * Consider trying a 32E. The 32DD would probably have a better depth, but the cups will be far too narrow (and Fantasie wires are stiff).

    Didn't fit

    Love the projection on this and depth, hated the gore after a day of wear. Lace was a little scratchy but seemed to soften/I adapted. Loved the cups hated the wire!

    34GG

    Didn't fit

    I really liked the look of this bra, but not the fit. The band fit me well (snugly on first hook), but the cups were too small - the gore was not tacking and I was getting quad boob. I also found the wires fairly wide and the fabric touched my tail of Spence in an annoying way. Too bad because it's a beautiful bra. I will probably reorder in a larger cup size.

    36GG

    Didn't fit

    I really wanted to like this bra, because it's beautiful. However, the 36 band is too big on me, the gore is not tacking and the top of the cups are wrinkling, so it's not a good fit. This bra has a lovely silky fabric and beautiful lace design, so I wish it were a bra that fit. Will reorder in a different size.

    This bra is not very comfortable nor supporting in this size. The cups are full, but the lace at the top doesn't stretch. The center seams will most definitely show through when wearing a t-shirt.

    30H

    Didn't fit

    This bra caused me pain in the sternum, the gore was too wide, and the cup was too wide. The side of these cups went all the way to my back, and the front of the cups were completely in my armpit. Side support bras are not my thing, now I know.

    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.

    36DD

    Hasn't set fit

    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.

    32F

    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...
