This is an example of the difference in European sizing which can be very confusing: I ordered what I thought was going to be a US 32F (32:7) through Amazon and received a US 32G, aka UK 32F, (which is probably OK since several reviews said it ran small). The fit was somewhat loose across the top of the cups when I 'slouched' and the bra needed more upper fullness than I have. The band was cleverly designed that it had lace wings layered over the band in the back to smooth out back fat. However, because I am low-set, it didn't function ...the way it was designed: the top edge of the lace sat a full 3 inches below the back of my armpit, so unfortunately it was ineffective. The lace that was used could also be improved. It only had 1-way stretch (on the lengthwise grain) and none on the crosswise grain. The deal breaker for me was the gore... very tall and over an inch wide, which sat on my close-set breast tissue. If it had been a plunge I probably would have kept it or looked for a US 32F. Ultimately, I guess I assumed because Fantasie is a UK brand that the size chart on Bratabase would be UK sizing as well. I should have paid more attention to the chart on Amazon's webpage.

I'm always on the hunt for that elusive t shirt bra. In the right size I think this Rebecca would be quite comfortable and full coverage enough for t shirts or work. It was supportive and smooth. Nothing about it was annoying on my skin. Not exactly a strong endorsement but it is definitely comfortable. I'm not a fan of this style bra and much prefer plunges but for some tops they just don't work so I let the bra fitter at Nordstrom and my daughter convince me that this 32GG fit even though I am usually a 34H or G. It was on sale and tbh I was a little desperate to find something. Sanity prevailed and I am returning it to try the 34.
This bra is super cute, with a nice supportive band and side slings to bring in tissue. I underestimated my size (32HH-ish in most brands) so the cup size was too small for me, but it actually seems to run a bit big for a 32G. Planning to try in a 32H and see if that works for me.
