This bra fits pretty darn well in the cup (a bit of quadraboob on the larger side) but I need a tighter band. I do believe the band stretched after a couple of wearings but I do believe it's relatively true to size there. The cups are very generous (as I've found to be true for Fantasie in general), so the F here might be more equivalent to an FF/G in other brands. I really need a 34G or even a 32GG in this style, but I do like a tighter band than many women prefer. Pros: solid build quality & materials. Perfectly smooth under ...clothing. Subtle print/pattern on the cups & a little lace along the front of the band, plus a couple little bows at the cup/strap junction and the gore make it kinda pretty. (Prettier on and off than the 4510, which is a GREAT bra but industrial-looking.) Good shape. Moulded cup disguises irregularity of breast size. Reasonably low center & wings. Absolutely comfortable day and night. Cons: Really, nothing serious. I would prefer a wider back band with 3 hooks (and those elusive 4 columns) and it could be prettier. The lace along the bottom does curl up, but that is common to every bra I own with lace there. I've only seen it in beige. Bottom line: I will be looking for a replacement in a more appropriate size, and I'd have it in every possible color. Read more 143 more words
Some of it is that I let a fitter bully me into it when it was clearly too small (I was at least a 34FF/G at the time). Now that I'm closer to the correct size, I still don't find it comfortable. The cups feel constricting, and the straps dig in a bit. It always feels like it's sliding down my torso (possibly because I need a cup size larger). I've grown used to seamed bras, and I feel like this pushes me into a slightly odd shape - my breasts aren't the same as the molded cups.
It is beautifully made, I appreciate that it's loved by a lot of users, but it's not a bra I'll ever re-purchase.
This isn't my favorite, because it comes up high from the strap to the underwire on the arm side. The underwire itself doesn't poke me, but the edge of the cup is uncomfortable by my underarm! The height of the cup can also be a problem for low-cut shirts. The band stretches very easily, so the comfort is good around your ribs. I actually am worried that this might be a problem when it is a little older, since I've only had it a week and I can already move from the last hooks to the middle ones. Considering I am trying to lose weight, I hope the bra keeps from stretching more so it works still if I drop along my ribs. If it wasn't for my arm pooch along my arm pits, this would be a very comfortable bra. I suggest women with my measurements try it on and see if that problem applies to them - if not, they'll probably be very happy!
