I would recommend trying this bra if you gave the Smoothing Moulded T-Shirt Bra a go and weren't pleased. I thought they were pretty similar, but there are some differences.
This bra has a gore that is almost half an inch lower, making it much more comfortable for me. The cups fit deeper than on the other model, but keep the same width - 5" in 30DD. I think that in this size the bra has a nice combination of cups that aren't super tall or wide, unlike some moulded t-shirt bras, so I am pleased with that. I like where this bra sits on me, though it is slightly too closed on top still. I also enjoy the gray color - it's different from what I have.
The cups are thicker, similar to a Freya Deco. It gives me a more rounded and lifted shape than the Smoothing Moulded T-Shirt Bra, but that's probably due to the extra depth. Unfortunately the cup edge is quite thick, and I've gotten rid of Decos for that before. It
I wear this bra under everything. It gives me a rounded shape with good lift and stays put all day. I don't get any show through when I'm cold, and the pattern is subtle enough not to show under lighter weight tops. Also, because the fabric seems to be more slick on the outer side, tops don't cling or wrinkle up. The only con is that I know my smaller breast doesn't fill out the cup fully, so if it wasn't so stiff, the cup would probably wrinkle on one side.
It looks and feels very sturdy. The fabric is smooth, but not satiny. The band is not very stretchy. The cups are too deep (from top to bottom) and the center gore is too tall, with the top of the underwires digging into my sternum. I would not recommend this bra for someone with conical breasts, or without a lot of fullness on top, and might recommend ordering up a band size.
Almost there! The strap fits perfectly but the cups seem a bit too big. I'm going to wait a little while since there still seems to be some tissue migration going on... the cups are rigid enough that it's impossible to tell under clothing though. It's quite comfortable so far.
Oh Fantasie--have you failed me or have I expected too much? That little quad boob on the left--can I forgive you for that? because when I wear this bra I feel like I own the room, that I am a All That. You lift me, project me, make me firm. Except for the quad boob part where I jiggle. Oh, and the slight inside quad boob where my bags-of-water boobs want to slowly fall out?
I can't wear you with most smooth shirts, and you make some of my cowl necks too tight because of your assertiveness. So I will have to think about this. Would a G cup swallow my right boob whole, but make the left one happy? Or do I need a different cut?
You do so much for me, but I know deep down this is not a good relationship.
This is currently my favorite bra! I've been wearing it regularly for about twelve weeks. It fits perfectly in the cups, no overspillage, and the underwire is neither too wide nor too narrow for my frame. I'm currently fastening it on the outermost set of clips, allowing for eventual stretch, so I know it will fit for a long time (I have not noticed much stretch happening yet; it is wearing well).
It is a firm bra, with some sturdiness in the cups and a solid feel to the underwire. Luckily the underwire is shaped well, so it doesn't poke or prod me, despite this structure.
It's a mellow, lavendery gray color, and has a smooth finish that allows my clothes to move freely over it. The pattern is a subtle off-white print on gray, but it does show through more sheer clothing, requiring me to wear a cami under most blouses.
this bra has a stretchy band. I can pull it at least 5 inches away from my body. The cups are scaled large all over, and the cup is just too big. it's definitely not a good fit at all, and I suspect a cup size down isn't going to fit.
I also made the stink eye at how the back elastic on the back was sewn. when the bra isn't on, it puckers, and the powermesh isn't finished neatly on that size. I know, the fabric isn't going to fray, but it's a tiny detail that matters to me.
after wearing this bra for a few minutes sitting down, the bottom curve of the underwire digs into my ribs. the wires are definitely too wide.
I've had this bra for several months, now, and I still like it quite a bit. The band has not stretched much, and the molded cups hold their shape even after machine washing (in a lingerie bag on gentle, of course). In fact, the shape of the cup is so fixed that even though I am a hair too small for this size, you would never know it; there is a tiny bit of free space in the top of the cup, but going down a cup size would have the very firm top edge cutting in, so I use this size, and have never had ...any problems.
The pattern is understated but attractive, and surprisingly invisible under clothing. The only complaints I would make about this bra are that the cups are a bit too stiff for my tastes (despite being very thin), and the cup material makes a whispery sound when the fabric of my t shirts moves across it. This hasn't been enough to keep me from wearing it regularly, but I would not say this is my favorite bra. Read more 78 more words
I would compare this most closely to the Fantasie 'Veronica' (2352) because of the "fashion" color/pattern, read the review here: http://bra.pe/Mh1/. Otherwise, the fit is precisely the same as other Fantasie bras 'Rhiannon' http://bra.pe/Mfi/ and 'Ava' http://bra.pe/MOp/.
Honestly, another perfect fitting bra. All day comfort: oblivious of wearing an actual bra, beautiful round shape, side wings & straps comfortable, true balcony molded style. Gorgeous unique print: the color is sometimes called "silver" or "grey", it is a warm grey which actually looks almost like pale lavender (purple). The stripes & floral pattern are a cream color. So far it shows just a bit under semi-sheer tops but I don't really mind as the general grey/creme colors are quite neutral and smart. : )
Measured (after hand washing) unstretched immediately before wearing. Purchased Early-March 2012 from Figleaves.
