The GG was a little droopy on me, so I tried the G, but it's far too small on my larger breast. It's also quite stiff - both the fabric and the lace on top. I imagine it would break in fine, but even if it had fit, I probably wouldn't have kept it to find out.

This bra should be identical to other cut and sew Fantasie bras but it's not. There is a slight--very slight difference in the height of the bottom panel that makes a HUGE difference in the fit. I feel uplifted and rounded but with the forward projection I prefer.
The straps are too wide-set but juuuust narrow enough that I think they will work. The colorway--a mottled purple--is very pretty and low contrast so I don't ahve to worry too much about what I wear it under. The left cup horizontal seam is not as flat/smooth as the right side. So now I wonder, is the difference in cup panels deliberate or a quality control issue?
It's comfortable, but it squeaks. But the shape is so wonderful and the cup--so far--doesn't chafe against my armpits, that it's a keeper.
Update Dec 2013: straps slip frequently. They are too wide-set.

Full cups are not my cup of tea, but the Nicola looked pretty enough on the rack, so I gave it a try. If it could present itself as a more cohesive whole, I might have given it a chance, but as-is, it has too much contrast going on in one bra.
The impressionistic pattern of the bottom half is what caught my attention, and the fabric itself was so comfortable, light, and pretty that I wish the whole bra had focused on the sentiment that it evoked. Instead, the floral stitching on the sheer upper halves of the cups was trying to be a different, slightly less comfortable bra unto itself, and the thick, unremarkable straps just made everything worse.
The band was firm and comfortable, but my smaller breast the had a little trouble filling the upper part of the cup.
