    Didn't fit

    This bra is gorgeous, it really looks stunning on me. Sadly the cup size is slightly too small. Not quite a full cup too small, so if I adjust it a bit it still works for me. I found it on clearance though, and it fit well enough that it was justifiable for the price (plus it is the prettiest bra for big busted girls that I have ever managed to fit into). The center gore sits closer to my body than most bras ever manage (the only one to almost fit along my sternum is 85H - Chantelle » Rive Gauche 3 Part Cup (3281). ... The underwire does not dig into my underarm, even after hours of wear. The straps do start to slip occasionally on me, and I have to adjust them sometimes. It is not from them being too loose, they just sit a bit farther apart on my shoulders than would be ideal. On the loosest setting the band isn't as tight as I would like, but is not overly loose, and only slips up slightly with long-term wear. It also only has 2 catches on the band, and I prefer having 3.

      Just wondering where you found this bra and size on clearance? :)

    • 38H at a Nordstrom Rack near me. There were a few other sizes a the time too.

    • eeep Thanks!

    Hasn't set fit

    I bought this bra in a 36FF about 18 months ago, almost at the beginning of my ABTF search. It was so pretty but much too big all over. I was still learning about fit and it was not a good choice. My friend was very happy to receive it and I moved on to purchase many more bras that are most likely also not a good fit.

    However, I keep seeing this one on Amazon and loved the raspberry colorway. It was only $35 so I took a chance on the smaller size. It is still as pretty as I remembered the first one and also does not ... fit. The band is large and I would have to start it on the second hook. It sits below my IMF, the bottom of the band is itchy and the straps seem excessively long. The cups mostly fit but the lace on the cups is loose and wrinkles. Idk where the side support is supposed to be happening but it wasn't noticeable. It's an all over funky fit!

    There are two issues with this bra. One is the size and/or shape is wrong for me but I think the real issue is that this is an irregular or factory reject bra that was wholesaled to resellers. It's on the way back to Amazon and perhaps someone else will find it to be a perfect fit.

    36F

    Fits

    First off, I love this bra. It is the prettiest bra I have ever owned. I have no idea why it's referred to as a "plunge", when it pretty clearly is not. Even still, it looks fantastic.

    Overall, I love the look it gives me-- slightly less rounded than the Cleo Lucy, with a very slight point, sort of a vintage shape. It fits me decently, but like with all bras, there is slight wrinkling in the upper lace portion for my left breast, as it is slightly smaller. This is not noticeable under clothes, and barely noticeable even without clothes. Also, this bra is slightly more projected than ... my Lucy, but only slightly-- I was finding that it was slipping about a .5-1" out of my IMF.

    I realized that my shape is this, and some parts of it are counter-intuitive: my roots are wide, short, and low, plus I'm extra projected, bottom-full, and very flat on top. So, I need a bra that is wide enough, for sure, but most bras that are wide tend to be shallow. As a result, I'll have bras that are wide enough, but that I am gradually pushing away from my body, by the end of the day. Fortunately, even regardless of this, the Marianna still looks beautiful, and is very comfortable, so it's a keeper.

    I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll have this issue with a lot of bras. Still, I will press onward for an even better fit.

      So beautiful on you! These colors... :-) :-)

    • Love4Pollinators Thank you! :) It makes me want to try out the halfcup, as well. It's just such an elegant bra. (Ok, I am totally gonna get the matching briefs. I can't help it. A bra this pretty deserves to be in a set!)

    • 2

      Giggle....we wouldn't want the bras to feel "lonely." The half cup may be a great fit for you, too :-) Good luck!

    • 2

      Bahaha, yes, precisely. :) I've been meaning to try a halfcup of some sort-- it would need to be a projected one, so we'll see! ;)

    • 1

      I think you look fantastic in this bra - it is super pretty as well. Hope you find a half cup that you like and I agree the briefs and bra look best when matching.

      Is it the side support that provides the forward projection? I love the retro look.

    • 1

      Paula50 You know what, I think that makes the most sense. The side-support panel pushes that tissue to the front/center, causing slight 'torpedo boob'. It's definitely not an extreme one, though!

      I've wanted matching, beautiful bras/panties for so long-- this will only be my second matching set, but eventually, I'll get the matching panties for the rest of my bras. And some day I plan to have a much bigger collection of them. :) Getting there! I really do feel so much more confident and sexy with matching sets.

      This is such a beauty. I didn't fare too well with the padded half cup version of this bra and really want to try the balcony. It's always been a favorite of mine. A matching set would be nice! I can always dream :)

    • letstalkaboutbras I am so excited to receive my matching panties... I can't wait! Just so I can put the set on and prance around in front of my mirror (imagine the "Faith" scene from Rules of Attaction.)

      I love the cut-- they call it 'Brazilian brief' but it's basically just cheeky low-cut hiphuggers (at least that's how I imagine them to look in person)... a bra this beautiful definitely needs the set! and fwiw, I think I paid $35 on Amazon for mine? And $13 for the panties. (Which... I guess is expensive, when I used to just get the 5-7/$25 deal for VS panties.) BUT.. less than $50 for a set this beautiful is pretty inexpensive, IMO.

      Really though, one of the cases where the bra is way more beautiful in person. Worth it. (I so have a developing 'problem', lol.) If you're more FOB (with slight top-fullness, but flat on top worked well enough for me) I SO recommend it!

      Under $27 (free shipping) for the magenta colorway in 30F (eeep, the 30FF is like $20 more though). The other ones are $74, but magenta is clearly the best color. ;)

      I looked at your old halfcup review. I wonder if you'd have these same issues in a balcony at the same size? This is the seller I bought from, and returned a set that didn't end up working at all...so, if you have to return it, you know. I'll stop pressuring you, now. ;)

    • 1

      That is a great price. I'll almost certainly need a 30E now, though :( I'm going to see if I can find it nearby.

      Thanks for finding it! I haven't tried any more Fantasie bras in my current size, so I don't mind the pressure :)

    32GG

    Fits

    This is a pretty bra that seems to run a tad big in the cups (thank you, mandapandarawks, for sending it to me!). It's a gorgeous deep fuchsia with black leaf print. The top portion of the cup is non-stretch lace that starts as fuchsia and bleeds into black. On close inspection, it's a remarkably lovely bra and they put a lot of effort into the details. The fit seems to be typical for Fantasie soft cups - they give a slightly pointed or "natural" silhouette. While I prefer a more rounded profile, the lift and support are superb so I can't complain.

    32GG

    Didn't fit

    My shape: full on bottom, soft tissue, narrow shoulders/roots.
    Special thanks to MamaPagan for sending me this bra (and many others!) to try on!
    Appearance: This bra reminds me of a really mysterious, moonlit evening. It's a pretty magenta and black floral lace with a tiny crystal charm at the gore.
    Fit: The cup is a tad two wide; there's a finger's width of extra fabric on both of the outsides of the cups. I get a funny shape wearing this bra, too; I think it's called the upside down 7? I remember getting this odd shape from Fantasie swimsuit tops I had tried last summer.

    32GG

    Hasn't set fit

    Marianna 32GG
    I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.
    Marianna was a side support full coverage bra. It had black lace over a magenta lining, but was unpadded.

    The band measured 26” to a max of 34” with 3 hooks and 3 rows of eye loops.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 12”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    ... This measurement is: 14”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    32E

    Didn't fit

    I have the Fantasie Rebecca in a 32E (which fits ok), but I find the cups on this one are too small and I quad significantly. Ideally, if the wires were just a bit wider and the cups had a little more center fullness, this would work perfectly for me. At first when the straps were tightened too much, the cups gave a nice profile. But after I properly adjusted the tension the cups became just a bit too pointy for my taste. I may try the next cup size up, but if that one is pointy too I won't keep it.

    34G

    Fits

    I lusted after this bra for weeks before finding one in my size on eBay; it's from last year so pickings were slim. I really love gray bras and bold lace patterns, so this is right up my alley.

    I have several Fantasie Rebecca bras, and all of them are 34G and fit well. In most other brands I'm a 34GG. Since this is an unlined cup AND a Fantasie bra, I assumed a 34G was a safe bet, and I was right. The band is supportive but comfortable. The cups are made for roots a bit taller than mine, but I'm used to that. The lace has ... some stretch to it, but not as much as my Panache/Cleo bras with stretch lace. It has that tiny sliver of elastic along the edge of the cup (like Curvy Kate Ellace) that I imagine would cut in for FOT breasts. The wires are a little wider than my tissue but not uncomfortable.

    I haven't tried a ton of bras, but what I've found is that Fantasie tends to be decent in comfort but give a natural/somewhat pointy shape, and this was no exception. It's certainly nowhere near as round as my Panache Envy or Ewa Michalaks.

    The lace is really gorgeous! It's white over the satiny gray mesh on the bottom, then gray/white lace near the apex, then white lace at the edge of the cup. There is a small jewel at the gore.

    The "side support" that is advertised heavily in the name was a little bit of a let down. I don't think it made a difference at all. It was just a carefully placed panel and seam that met up with the strap.

    Overall, it's a decent bra that fits well. The shape isnt my favorite, but I'll still wear it.

    34GG

    Didn't fit

    I ordered this in the silver & white colourway in my sister size of 34GG because it looked so pretty. It fits but I can see why it isn't available in larger cup sizes as the support is pretty light due to all the stretch lace. Ideally I would want this in a 32H (my typical size) as the band is on the tightest hooks.

    It hurts to part with a bra this pretty but I am not keeping it as given the lighter support I wouldn't wear it enough. I recommend it for smaller cup sizes or if you are willing to compromise on the support.

    My boobs start at my collarbone, I think they are average on the top, firm and bottom heavy with lots of projection.

    30E

    Fits

    This bra actually fits me. It is sufficiently narrow in gore & cup width to fit (which is almost rare). It is true to size for band and cup as well. It is a bit pointy in the cups though, extending the breasts out further forward rather than squishing them to the side. It is a lot of lace, with a mostly sheer upper half, but the nipple tends to fall nicely in the covered lower half (which doesn't always happen with these upper shear bras). There is a slightly amount of elasticity in the upper cup band, which helps eat up the slack if my shoulders are leaning forward, but cuts into the breast tissue slightly when I pull my shoulders all the way back (so that it appears to slightly quad-boob, even though the cup size fits).
