Oh Rebecca...I had high hopes for a fitting friendship. But...we’re just not working out. It’s not me, it’s you.
After trying the Rebecca in a 30FF and having cups that were too wide and slightly too big, I have it a go with this 30F. Now the cup is the right width but lacks the projection I need. If I could get these wires in the 30FF I’d be happy. I get a pushed up affect in this bra with the center gore not even close to sitting in the proper spot. But as far as working under a top in need of wider straps I can get by with it. It’s not ideal by any means but when you’re in a pinch this will work. I do get some quad-boob but as the cup relaxes it goes away for the most part due to the forgiving cup fabric. Such a major bummer. I really hoped this was “the one”.

This bra is extremely comfortable all day long. It definitely minimizes the size of my boobs under tops. While the cups are smooth on the outer side, the molding is made of a thin spacer foam and is definitely prone to nipple visibility poking through every so often. The foam also doesn't shape so much, but rather it smooths out whatever your natural shape is (part of the reason why it is so comfortable though). The cups are also very breathable with the foam. I have only had this bra for about four months (actually bought two colors) so far but it hasn't stretched out at all, even with regular wear since it has become my workhorse bra. Most days, this is my go-to bra and for that, it has been perfect.

This bra is made out of a nice, soft, supportive material that isn't too heavyweight and hasn't got as much padding as a normal moulded bra, yet supports like one. I find @Fantasie are quite generous in their sizes compared to other brands available in the UK, but I don't think it's too loose or big on me. The nude colour is great for UK complexions because it's not in 'orange' or 'tanorexic' like a lot of other nude bras. It's lighter and has a vintage or retro feels to it because of the accompanying briefs. The shape and style isn't anything fancy or exciting, but is smooth ... and comfy for everyday wear.
It's definitely one of the more pricey bras. I got it for £38, which is the most I've ever spent on a bra. For me this isn't an issue because I'd rather buy a well-fitting bra than a cheap bra. The quality is superior to a normal department store model and so I expect it to last longer.
My only personal quibble is that I've worn moulded cups all my life (generally because I've always worn the wrong size) and don't like unpadded ones because they tend to show cold nipples easily. The same thing happens with this bra so I make sure to wear it on warm days or under several layers.
All things considered, this is a great bra.

This fit me perfect and was reasonably comfortable, but I just could not get over the shape. It made me look very wide and larger than I really am. Also had very little lift. Had to send back because of how if made me look under clothes.

Thought it fit at first after being newly bravangelized, but after further exploration, really not a great match for my petite frame, projected, FOB, narrow, wide-set breasts. My breasts fold over inside the cup, causing the wire to slide down from my IMF throughout the day, and the cups are pretty tall for my petite frame, though the straps are set narrowly enough for my shoulders. The spacer material is comfortable but for me, allows more nipple show-through than I'm comfortable with in a professional environment.

This was the first bra I found that "fit" after discovering my true UK size. However, after additional exploration, it's not a great match for my petite frame, projected, FOB, narrow, wide-set breasts. My breasts fold over inside the cup, causing the wire to slide down from my IMF throughout the day, and the cups are pretty tall for my petite frame, though the straps are set narrowly enough for my shoulders.

Created a rounded shape for the breasts underneath clothes. Feels very comfortable. Good coverage.

It's very comfortable, the spacer foam conceals my nipples nicely and gives a rounded shape. The wires are a good shape for me and the straps are also a good width. There is obvious quadding however and if I buy this bra again I'll definitely go up one cup size.
Unfortunately it doesn't give me wonderful support and I do bounce around a bit while wearing it. The lace is also a little uncomfortable.

Stretchy, comfy, and beige. The diamond pattern is still one of my favorite little details on the Rebecca, but the cup runs large (more like a 30FF-32F). Missed my fit again. However, if I could get my hands on a 30E, I would probably deal with the slightly large band because of the shoulder strap placement. Very narrow-shoulder friendly for me (though maybe not on someone with high boob placement).

** Note: this review is based on a single try-on **
I like the smooth, full cups, and I can tell this would be a good T-shirt bra, but there's just something off about it. The gore almost-not-quite tacks. There's not quite quad-boob at the top, just little wrinkles that don't seem to smooth out. It just doesn't look great. It doesn't flatter my shape, I guess. It's a little shallower than I want, and it ends up having a minimizer effect and pushing my breasts down rather than out. It's so, so, close, though.
But it doesn't matter, because the tiny, pointy, unnecessary lace along the band is infuriating (...I may be the princess and the pea).
