    Didn't fit

    So I decided to give Fantasie the benefit of the doubt, and try this bra, since it's supposed to be something of a bridge style between Fantasie and Goddess/Elomi.
    Oh Fantasie, does it somehow not occur to you that a K cup bra needs underwires that can, I dunno, hold their shape? Like seriously, is this underwire made of plastic??? As much as I complain about limited size ranges, if they're going to make bras in this cup size like this, I'd really rather they just stop at a smaller size.

    Seriously, look at the last picture I uploaded. I am pulling really very gently, side-to-side, and the wire ... completely distorts, not even stretches side to side, twists into like an S-curve or something. It's ridiculous. (For comparison, I did the same thing to Panache Jasmine, same amount of pressure, and the wire stretches width-wise, 1" or less.) These underwires are in no way able to stand up to my boobs.

    As you can see from the picture, the fit is ridiculous. I can't even tell if it's just the wires, or the cup is way too small, or what, but it fits like it's maybe 4-5 cups too small. Also the cups fit very east-west, spread out. This bra made my boobs look so awful!

    It's too bad, really, because it's a very, very pretty bra. I tried the charcoal color, which is a charcoal base with very light pink embroidered tiny flowers and vines. (Embroidery is on the cups/center gore only.) There's a really pretty little detailing along the top edge of the cups. There's also a decorative bit on the front half of the straps. Now, it's pretty, but rather stupid, because it means the straps can't adjust shorter without shoving the adjuster-piece over this detailing. (I haven't tried, since I am returning the bra, but I assume this can at least be done, with some effort.) The straps aren't even limited-stretch, to make up for being limited-adjust, even the part with detailing is stretchy.

    The bra is light and airy, looks-wise, and as far as material. The cups are, I think 2-layer, mesh, with a little stretch to it, quite light. The back band is a slightly different, 1-layer, stretchier mesh (very, very stretchy - I think bigger band sizes or smaller cup sizes may need to size down, as the more of this part there is, the stretchier this band is going to get).

    The straps, aside from the problems mentioned above, are fairly nice, good thickness and are pretty comfortable. Actually, the strap placement is excellent, one of the only good things I can say about this bra. The straps are placed more towards the center, and don't dig into my armpits at all. The arm opening seems large enough, the cup doesn't dig in either. Well, actually I think it's too low under the arms, and I seem to spill out a bit above the sides.

    The back band digs in weirdly and makes lots of back fat, I think it's just not strong enough and gets bunched up a bit. (The band is the right length, as I can comfortable fit 2 fingers under, with it closed on the second hook. It's weird, when I measure it, it shouldn't fit like this, it should be too small, but it easily hooks, even though the stretched measurement I got is almost 2" smaller than my ribcage measurement. WTF?)

    The cups are 3-section seamed, with a small inner lower section, a large outer lower section and a small-ish upper section that goes across the full width of the cup, and has the straps attached to it. The vertical seam between the two lower sections is approximately 7"/18cm. The cups are moderately deep at the bottom of the wires. This is not really a partial band bra, but sort of acts like it, since there's no actual amount of band below the cups, just it slopes down towards the bottom of the cups at the attachment.

    I hope someone who wears a smaller size will try this bra, I'd be really interested to see how it will work for smaller breasts than mine! Especially since it is so pretty, but so, so fail-y on me!

    The Salsa is an unlined 3-part balconette bra. It's pretty, but too bad it doesn't fit!
    The cup runs large in this size, at the top of the cups. After scooping and swooping, I was able to fill the bottom of the cups, but I had lots of wrinkles in the top half of the cup. I guess I just don't have enough fullness on top to fill it. Maybe this would be better for more even breast shapes.
    One factor that probably contributes to the upper half wrinkles is that the height of the cup is really tall: the Salsa is about 17 cm from the strap straight down ... to the bottom of the band/cup, including the underwire when measured with the bra flat, compared to about 13.7 cm on a 30F Cleo Melissa. The cup depth of the Salsa is deeper than the 30F Melissa, so when filled, the Salsa definitely requires more volume.
    The band is just a bit too large/stretchy, as I can fit four fingers between the band and my back.
    The straps are half-adjustable, and the material seems sturdy. The flower design is a light peach/pink shade (and the design is really cute), and the bra's color is a dark, dark grey (charcoal). There are little bows where the strap meets the cup, and the center gore has a cute bow.

    Straps did not adjust enough. The straps were adjusted to the shortest and still slid off my shoulders.

    I love the feel of this bra but it is too east-west to wear with a lot of my shirts. I can only wear it with stretch tshirts and not when I want to look my absolute best. It is my most comfortable bra though.
    The wires go a long way around the side which I need as I have tissue going right under my arms. The central gore sits perfectly on my chest.

    The fabric is too stretchy and the underwires too flexible. When you put the bra on, the wires stretch out and collapse so that the gore can't sit flat on the sternum and the wires poke into the breast tissue. It seemed like the cup volume would be appropriate were it not for the cups stretching out oddly and flattening in the center, creating quad-boob on top and excess space on the sides.

    Didn't fit

    I love the actual cut of this bra and the way it fits. I just can't get over the awful fabric choice! The embroidered design is IMHO quite ugly, and the way it is sewn onto the fabric causes the fabric to gape and wrinkle even though the bra fits perfectly. It's also itchy and somewhat creaky. I would say this model tends to run a bit large in the cup, I usually wear a 30GG and 30G was quite full coverage on me and even somewhat loose and blousy on my smaller side. This bra seems to have a lot of center fullness/projection.

    I really like this bra. It holds everything in place. The only thing I don't like is the separation between my boobs. It is very wide.

    This bra is too big in the back and surprisingly too big in the cup for me aswell. (Bought before being fitted properly)
    Lovely bra and lovely wide straps with pattern on the front.
    Lovely flower detail to the cups and cute bow to the centre of the gore.

    34FF

    Fits

    This currently my favorite bra because it is quite comfortable. I am short-waisted and this bra does not stab me in the underarms. The band is a little stretchier than other brands. I originally bought this 34FF but then bought a 32FF because it is clear that the 34FF will stretch out and be too big. I did not go up in cup size.

    Beautiful details! It fits lovely around but the cups are a bit too small for me (I hover between the GG and H).
