This bra fit very much like its utilitarian model, the 4510. Unlike the 4510, it came in cute fashion colors and had feminine embroidered details around the front along the underwires. The band is made of double-layered powernet, and was a bit stretchier than the 4510.
At first, I found the embroidery to be itchy, but after a wash or two it was no longer a problem. Like the 4510, it gave me a very nicely rounded, forward-projected, lift-and-separated kind of look (not too far separated, it pulled in and gathered breast tissue out from under my arms. I found the chocolate color (from Fall '07) to be just fine under medium or darker colored t-shirts and anything a bit thicker that wasn't white. It was great under all necklines except the widest squares (the top corner could show) or the deepest plunges (center gore could show).
All in all, a great everyday bra with just enough extra touches to feel sexier when I put it on without sacrificing anything in wearability.
Wires too narrow and bendy. Molded cups are silly shaped. Apex is way too high and empty. Folding underneath because my boobs want to be in the apex. Band 2-hook and not really supportive Volume - mostly okay. Straps are too wideset. Somehow, I still quadboob slightly when I'm sc/swooped properly.
Most of my favorite bras are Fantasie moulded cups from 2010-2011. I took a chance ordering a beautiful brown shade from ebay hoping the fit would be the same. I haven't yet found out what season this bra is from but since the tags are a different design and it is a bit tougher to find online I think it must be from at least 3 years ago. *July 6, 2012 Edit: I think I just found out it's from 2007!
The materials are the exquisite quality I would expect from Fantasie: high quality moulded cups, fully adjustable and nicely stretchy straps, beautiful embroidery details. ...There are only two things that are different than my other Fantasie bras: the band is very stretchy and I could do it up on the final hook immediately, so it fits more like a loose-30 or an actual-32. The wing height is a bit shorter than I am used to or prefer and so some of my tissue seems to escape out of the side. I would probably appropriate this as a good fitting 32F.
I will see if one of my friend's can fit this and if she can it is a gift. It was a great deal even with shipping. If not, I may just occasionally wear it started on the 3rd hook and enjoy a beautiful new addition to my drawer. At least for a season! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

Fits well in all other areas other than being able to fill the cup. I wear a 34G in a Freya Deco for my other bras, and figured a similar style in the same size by a sister brand would fit similarly. I would need to go down at least a cupsize, maybe 2 for this bra to fit.
