I was hoping that the Rebecca would be a good replacement style for a long time everyday bra that I own about 6 of in nude because they work with all my outerwear and are super comfy (Fantasie's Smoothing Balcony Bra - the unpadded one, not the Tshirt bra).
I've been recently fitted into a 28GG for Panache/Cleo but since Fantasie doesn't go down to a 28 I find that I'll end up in a 30G or occasionally 30FF in Fantasie.
Like the Fantasie Smoothing Balcony Bra this is generous in the cup and the 30G was too big. It looks ok in the photos because the fabric is ... thickly padded and shaped and won't wrinkle but my boobs are just hanging in those cups. I don't fill out the sides at all and don't stretch the cup fabric anywhere.
Oh! And that's the best part of this bra - the fabric is nice and padded (no nipple show) but it has a fair bit of stretch in it!
I also found that the bra gives you an unflattering east/west spread - it's a bit minimising from the side view but makes me look matronly from the front.
Hoping this will be less noticeable in a cup size down. I think I'm going to give it another shot in a smaller size simply because it is really comfortable and I haven't found a bra with a bit of padding in it that is as comfortable and as versatile as my everyday Fantasie Smoothing Balcony bra.

The molded cups really just flatten everything out, and the band is TIGHT. I require my band more stretchy than all the fit guides tell me to, I think.

Even if this bra ''fits'' me, I do not like it. The lace on the elastic band is very tight and itchy (but the band in itself is ok). The wire on the the side lies on my breast tissue, but only on the side of my biggest boob. This bra also gives an east-west look that I don't like. I prefer Fantasie Eclipse Spacer Moulded Balcony Bra because its wires are wider and the bra is softer.

Pros: super comfortable for an unpadded bra! It definitely keeps everything in check! I like how adjustable the straps are. The gore also lays very flat and doesn't bother me or irritate my sensitive skin unlike most bras.
Cons: I have pierced nipples and this bra does nothing to hide that fact. It's actually almost totally see through on me. The band is also super stiff.

Okay, I've worn a lot of Fantasie bras, and I think my problem has been one of fit. Too-small bands, too-big bands, too-small cups, too-big cups.
This band is slightly too tight on me, but this cup is finally correct. A 32FF would be perfect.
I've owned a bunch of the Rebecca Spacer bras, and I don't think they stretch out especially.They do also make good t-shirt bras.

Tight in the band and generous in the cup, this bra might be better suited to a 30GG/28H. I wore it when I measured about a 30GG, and it is the most comfortable bra I've ever had. The padding is super light; it line-dries almost as fast as my unlined bras (a bonus if you live in a super humid environment). It fit my small, sloped shoulders better than my Panache or Freya bras, and the diamond detail on the straps is lovely. I will definitely be getting this in the right size again when I can.
Definitely full coverage, so no cleavage here for me. I've heard that the cups stretch out too much for those above an E, but since my band size is small and my tissue is soft, I can't really comment on that since it didn't matter for me.

I went back to Nordstrom to exchange the Freya Decos that were too big in the band to find that they didn't have any 30" bands in store. I wanted to do a quick fit check of a moulded 30G and a 30GG just to get an idea. As soon as I put this bra on in the 30G, I forgot about the Deco. For my breasts, it's about perfect. The light, stretchy moulding shapes my breasts without gaping or quad-boobing, and that's something that's hard for me to find.
The only issue I have is that the gores comes a little high/is a little wide for my extremely close set breasts, but it's hardly a problem.

I've been searching for a t-shirt bra for a long time, and while the Rebecca isn't perfect, it's the closest fit so far. Over all, the fit isn't too bad. The cup doesn't cut in along the top, the wires are wide enough, the straps stay on my shoulders. The gore, however, doesn't sit quite flush against my sternum, and the cups are definitely not deep enough for my breasts - they collapse along the bottom. As I said though, this is the best moulded bra I've come across so far.
The band is very firm - I find that Fantasie bras don't stretch out as quickly/easily as Freya's. The shape that this bra gives, however, is not really the shape I'm looking for. I find that it minimizes my projection when viewed from the side, but sort of squishes my boobs so they look wider than they are. While the shape isn't terrible, I do prefer the more projected look.

I LOVE my Fantasie Rebecca (2024) . I was shocked to discover that I was actually a size 30G, but now that I know what a true sized bra is like, I'm NEVER going back to VS. It is comfortable, does not move throughout the day, and so far has not stretched out or started to poke.

I love the purple colour and believed it fit upon first month of wear. However, as I have become accustomed to my new bra size (34band to 30band), I have found that this style of bra just does not suit me. The straps sit too far away making me fidget; the cup cuts too high into my armpit giving a horrible bulging effect; the wires are too wide for me and so a lot of breast tissue is on the sides instead of projecting out front (which my breast shape naturally does, I think); the band feels quite stretchy and seems to ride up ever so slightly; and, although supported, it does not feel as supportive as my other bras and actually separates my breasts out, which I don't like the look of.
