    This is far from the perfect bra for me but I've kept it because it serves a very useful purpose.

    I ordered this in my usual Fantasie size – a 30F – and while it fits, I kind of have to wrangle my breasts into it. The problem is that while I do fill the cups, I have to shove my breasts down into them in order to fill the bottom and avoid a bit of quadboob at the top. Of course, as the day wears on, everything shifts and I'm left with space at the bottom of the cup and double-bubble at the top. The other problem is ... that the band is much tighter than Fantasie's usual 30 band, so for the time being at least, I'm having to wear an extender. And problem #3 is that the wide wires gives a much more east-west (and therefore minimized) profile than I like most of the time (except under loose/flowy tops where this can be an asset).

    So why did I keep the bra considering all this? Well, I like the fact that it's seamless, which in the summer is great when wearing thin tops. And the nude colour is a perfect match to my fair skin tone. But really, the selling/keeper factor of this bra is the straps: they're positioned closer together than most bras, which is a god send for my narrow shoulders. I struggle less with straps slipping than I do with them chafing my armpit/shoulders. This bra doesn't do that. Moreover, Esme's close-set straps can easily be pulled in closer to my neck (and they'll stay put like that all day!) which is great under some tanks and sleeveless tops wherein I don't want my bra strap showing.

    So whereas this bra definitely has its problems, I've kept it or at least until I find a better option – a (fair) nude, seamless bra with close-set straps. They're hard to come by, trust me!

    • I'm not sure how the band runs on this model (you would have to sister size to a 32DDD), but Natori's Understated T-Shirt bra reminds me pretty strongly of the Esme's strap positioning (though from what I've seen the straps are thinner on the Natori). It comes in a pretty fair nude. I haven't gotten my hands on one in my size to test it out yet for other issues, though.

    Ordered this Fantasie 30F bra. I did not know that this bra is technically not moulded. It is one piece fabric with underwire. Normally, The fabric bras I have tried give me the dreaded triangle boob shape, but this one, due to the solid seamless shape, it fit PERFECTLY as if it really was a moulded cup. Very comfortable and good for T-shirts!

    This review is for the Esme in black.

    One of my favorite bras. Comfortable, supportive, great leotard back for us smaller ladies.

    No complaints.

    This is my absolute favorite everyday work bra. It holds the breasts in close to the chest, giving a very smooth, rounded, almost "minimized" appearance. Although this may not be everyone's cup of tea, I love the fact that it allows me to fit into many tops that are normally off limits.

    Pros:
    - Very, very comfortable; the most comfortable I've ever worn.
    - Invisible under clothes; lovely round shape.
    - Nice firm band. I've been wearing it every other day for a month and no sign of stretch yet.

    Cons:
    - Definitely not a sexy bra. Not by any stretch of the imagination https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />.
