This bra is gorgeous, absolutely. The rose pattern and satin make it a lovely bright red bra. The gore is nice and high, and the straps are wide, though a bit wide-set in the back. As the band loosens and I put it on tighter hooks, this should fix itself. I usually wear a 30F, but this 30E fits perfectly. The mesh at the top has no stretch, so the very top edge indents my soft breasts the slightest amount, but going up a cup size would definitely be too much. The bottom of the gore, below where the wires split out, is made of mesh, which I bet will help with breathability. I feel like it makes my boobs point out just a bit, but the effect isn't very noticeable under a shirt. Overall I definitely will enjoy adding this to my collection.
This bra is good for people with very full breasts. You must have breast tissue at the top and bottom to fill the cups. It has very full coverage, so it can only be worn with tops that come up to your neck. No v-necks.
I found that it stretched very easily, which is why I had the band taken in. I think I only wore it for a total of 6 months before I put it aside because it was too big. Definitely on the large side of a G cup.
The bra is beautiful. Lower cups are a lustrous satin, upper is lace extending to the straps. But the horizontal 3-section cup gives a pointy, rather matronly look (not an issue with the balconette version). The real trouble though is that the center wires sit so tight to the breastbone, they're painful. And as with all Fantasie bras I find the mesh side wings to be too harsh a fabric. The elastic on them also doesn't lay flat, but rubs & rolls.
