    30GG

    Didn't fit

    As I said with the Fantasie Helena, I'm starting to think that Fantasie bras are a whole cup size bigger than Panache/Cleo/Freya and pretty much everyone else. I bought about 10-15 bras in a big haul from Figleaves this month - while Figleaves had a 20% off sale - all were size 30GG including this one.

    The Fantastie Elodie is another style that I've been meaning to try for years: it is always rated 4 or 5 stars on Figleaves and Fantastie keep making new colourways season after season. It must be a successful style for them. However, due to its price - it's expensive enough - I never ... got around to trying it.

    This didn't seem quite as generous as Fantasie's Helena but I still think it's too big on me. The cup isn't noticeably wrinkled at the top of the cup, but I'm not really filling the bottom and sides out completely either. My nipple is a bit too low and not at the cup seam.

    Again I feel quite un-sexy with this on. It's a true full cup bra and the upper edges of the cup are completely against my sternum enclosing all my breast tissue completely. I felt restrained in this bra - the back band, the straps, the full cups everything combined to make me feel strapped in.

    The straps are chunky and it's too much coverage for me. The colour combination should have been a winner: cobalt blue with black lace, but I didn't adore the style in person.

    The main reason I wont be keeping this one is the shape: from the side it's way too pointed!

    I wonder if the 30G would have been better. Probably. it wouldn't have been quite so bad.

    Like the Helena I can't recommend this style at this price point. If you think all your bras have straps that are too narrow, try Fantastie, but otherwise, steer clear!

    • I have not had much luck with Fantasie - either pointy or saggy and too big.

    • I agree about Fantasie's cups having irregular sizing! Very frustrating. I loved the idea of side-support, but the cups were too pointy and deep for my wide/shallowness.(30D - Fantasie » Annabelle Side Support Bra (2842) ). Even though there was room left over in the cups, I couldn't get all my tissue into them!

    Good overall, but not as much side support as I was looking for. My second attempt in this brand. The other one is 34GG, and pushes the girls to the sides even more.

    Update: late July 2012

    Fits better as my breast tissue migrates.

    Original review: Same as the Lizbeth--I bought in haste, with a short time to shop before meeting family. Sin in haste, repent at leisure.

    Good: straps don't slip! Very pretty. band fits OK for a few hours and then the wires dig in. Gives me a nice shape and really brings my breasts up.

    Bad: Wires are far too wide and end behind my arm. Cup seemed perfect in the store but is just a little too big (wrinkles at the top). Cups come up too high under my arm. Same old story: I'm petite and need something that is lower cut.

    Sigghhh.

    Update Sept 2013: Finally decided the seam is too bulky and shows through most of my shirts. Good for when I wear layered clothing.

    It does fit better not that I know how to settle in to a bra better.

    Hasn't set fit

    I purchased this bra online from the @figleaves UK store as I needed a new bra quickly (my weight fluctuates often) and didn't want to wait a month for my usual Ewa Michalak order. I think it's quite pointy, and the wires are too wide for me - ending behind my arms if they are resting at my side. The center gore doesn't sit quite flat, but this is likely due to my uneven sized breasts ( as buying a larger size to fit the larger breast the cup on the smaller breast is too loose and it's only gaping a little. Fairly comfortable and the fabric is quite soft and the cobalt (blue) colour is quite pretty.

    Exceptional level of fail, for me, with this beautiful bra. It truly is beautiful, with it's fancy embroidery, and I'm sad it looks so incredibly terrible on me. Major lesson learned today, though. Even though I need a lot of side support, I need it to be in the wing area and not with the help if an inner side sling or panel. Ughh. The first bra I tried when I began this journey, had that problem, but I didn't understand it as well as I do now.

    My breasts are very soft and deflated. I have yet to see an unlined bra look good on me. Every ... little thing shows. Inner slings like this one, and the seam between the different fabrics (with different levels of flexibility) of the Cleo Lucy, create all sorts of creases, indents, wrinkles, bulges and whatnot. I guess if I were to find one that does work, it would have equal support (fabric-wise) in all parts of the cup. It's hard to even describe what the Elodie did to me, but I will try.

    Maybe "sling" is the wrong word. There is a panel on the side of the cup that is a thicker and firmer material than the others. This pressed on the tissue on the side of my wide roots, distorting the shape in a way that made everything else about the cups fit terribly. I never have the problem of wrinkling in the bottom or outer sides of cups, because my boobs totally sink to the bottom and fill them in. But, this bra made it appear that neither sides nor bottom were filled in. Adding insult to injury, I also wasn't filling in the tops and had tons of gapping all along the top edge of the cup, except....oddly enough...in my biggest problem area....the place where cup meets strap. There, the gapping was much less significant than it is in almost every other bra I have tried thus far. I also felt like the wings weren't quite high enough and the gore dug into my sternum painfully.

    I can't even begin to say whether or not this runs true to size. Either the cups run big or the astoundingly bad fit just made it seem that way. The band seems about the same as the other 30s I have tried now (Panache, Cleo, Parfait by Affinitas), with the exception of the Natori True Decadence (in which the 30 band was nice and snug). This is one of the prettiest bras I have tried. And also one of the worst ones on me. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    Beautiful teal but alas mostly black. Why, Fantasie? I don't want a black bra. The teal part is gorgeous.

    Straps are a little too wide set, as per usual. Fantasie, we're not all broad-shouldered, you know. Band seems a little less firm than my other Elodie bought 3 years ago. Everyone is cutting corners.

    Fits FOB, projected, close-set. Medium width (I really need narrower but can't find any).

    There was extra space in the top of the cups on me indicating wrong size. Also, although the gore was against me, it seemed to move from side to side, so wasn't very secure.

    This just came in a recent bra order. It fits pretty well, I'm just deciding if I want to keep it or not. I'm leaning to returning this and keeping the Helena. It's a pretty bra, but I like the look of the other better.

    30E

    Didn't fit

    I only tried on this bra in a local shop, but I did not buy it as it did not fit me very well.

    General comments:

    I have only just hopped on the correct-size-bra-band-wagon and still very much in the process of figuring out what works for me. This is not made any easier by the fact that I am breastfeeding (10 months and counting) and still am not used to fact that I have BREASTS, as opposed to my pre-pregnancy 'breasts'. Also, because of breastfeeding, my size, shape and density isn't exactly constant. Anyway, I've so far found only two bra models in a size 60 band (both Freya) ... in local stores and this review is for one of them. I tried this bra on in 65E only.

    Bra description:

    A reasonably okay-looking bra made out of black mesh with cream embroidery in a floral pattern. I wasn't smitten, but wanted to try ANY bra with a band size smaller than 70, so I tried this one too.

    Fit:

    The band didn't feel THAT snug. In fact, I could quite easily close it at the tightest hook. The centre gore laid nice and flat though, something I haven't seen too often before.

    The cups were a decidedly less successful story, though not as disastrous as the ones on two Freya models I tried at the same time. The underwires only JUST encircled my breasts, but not convincingly so. I would have preferred them wider, but with the band size not optimum I did not see a point in trying a larger size. The cups actually ALMOST fit -- there was only some slight wrinkling at the top of the left one, my slightly smaller breast. Slight tightness along the edges of the cups, though, again, not as badly cutting into my breasts as the Freyas did. The shape the cups gave me was just ... meh. Not very lifted at all, pointy, East-West -- pretty much as if I wasn't wearing any bra at all. It also didn't feel supportive and the fabric less than comfortable against my skin.

    Conclusion:

    Not for me, this bra. It didn't do anything for my wide-set, wide-based, not too voluminous breasts. The search continues.

    This cup size is clearly too large for me -- there's a lot of emptiness in the top and the look was very pointy. The cups were tending to flip up, so there was digging at the sternum. The best thing about it is that I have no back roll with it. I tried it in other sizes (I'm not going to list them all) and it seems as though a 32E might be good (the one size I didn't order, of course), but the profile is pretty pointy, so I'm not going to bother trying that size. I don't think it's supportive enough for me and the straps are too narrow. It is pretty, though!

    I now understand that the band is too big for me too!
