This bra is very similar to my @Elomi Amelia Spacer bra, though the Elomi bra is prettier because it has lace on the side of the cups. But the Rebecca is super comfortable!! I just got it from eBay and when I tried it on, it fit so comfortably, I didn't want to take it off. I had intended to wash it since it was NWOT (new without tags), but it the fit was so good and it was so nice to wear that I just had to wear it today as-is.
It does have a little lace and embroidery detailing on the band, but overall, the bra is ... more of a plain, sturdy bra that has a minimized shape. If you want the cupcakes on a plate look, this isn't the bra for you. While I generally do like bras with a more front and center look, some days I want comfort and simplicity above everything else and the Fantasie Rebecca (and the Elomi Amelia) are good for those days.
The only issue so far is that the gore doesn't tack and my boobs almost want to quad, but they seem to be holding up pretty well. I have close-set breasts so most bras don't tack for me (except my Cleo bras).
CUPS RUN BIG! In case you are new to @Fantasie, this 38G bra is the equivalent to a 38GG in other brands like Panache/Cleo, Elomi, and Freya (38H in Curvy Kate). So if you're normally a 38G UK size, you'll want to size down in the cup. I bought this because it was on my bratabase recommendations list and I'd compared the measurements to my currently fitting bras, so I knew it was going to fit like a 38GG.
I'd recently run out of nude bras in my size (I only had black), so I'm really happy I got this one. I may have to order another one this month. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

At first I thought I was going to love this bra. The material is very soft and it was suuuuuper comfy. It was a bit high in both the gore and the cups for me (balconette styles generally work best for my boobs), but I thought, heck, if it's this comfy I don't even care. Also, I almost always have great luck with Fantasie bras and the Rebecca comes in lots of great colors. I bought the size I usually wear (38G), and it fit as expected.
Unfortunately, it didn't take long at all for the cups to lose their lift. Their shape was a little low and ... long to begin with, and before long I had almost a teardrop-shape look. I had a little extra space in the top of the cups, which never happens because my boobs are full on top. I ended up hating this bra with a passion. With clothes on, it was just rather dowdy looking. If this bra cost $20, I'd be ok with just replacing it every three months or whatever. But, it's too expensive to replace as often as I would need to, to keep a perky shape.

I don't do well with the shape and the depth was a bit too much. Wore less than 10 times as it was generally uncomfortable.

This bra was awful. It fits huge. The 38G probably fits closer to a 38H. If it fit it would probably be nice, but it did absolutely nothing for me.

Band digs in initially but stretches out after 5-6 wears. Using an extender until it gets more comfortable. The gore is higher than I'd like it to be but it's not the end of the world. Other than that, it certainly keeps everything in place. No poking from the underwire. I own this in black and beige (at the insistence of a really rude salesperson) but probably wouldn't buy it again.
