    30E

    Didn't fit

    This one's so close to fitting! It gives me a great rounded, uplifted shape. The band is nice and snug - I tried jumping up and down and it didn't budge. It has some silicone around the band to help it grip. The bra is lightweight and pretty comfortable. The cups are seamless and if it fit I think it would look really great.

    If it fit... I think I'm having a shape issue with this one. I think it's wanting rounder, shallower breasts than mine because the cups collapse in on themselves and fold up under my breasts. It's too bad, this one was so close to perfect. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    30E

    Didn't fit

    This is the strapless "equivalent" of the 4510 & 4515. It's a molded, smooth cup bra, and colorwise works well under anything. As far as fit, though, that's where the similarities end.

    The center gore on this is substantially higher than the 4510, and the cups come up quite high in comparison. It's obviously not a true full-coverage bra, but it very nearly felt like one. It did not move *at all* while worn, likely due to the rubberized strips in the top line of the band. I don't think it'd be half as supportive for anything larger than, say, an F, or for very heavy breasts. The underwires ... poked under my arms, but they kept everything in.

    I felt like the quality of this bra was far lower than the 4510 or 4515, because (at least on mine) the top part of the wings where the rubberized strip is ran *into* the cups a bit (see photos). It does what it needs to, and given the general lack of alternatives for a smooth, molded, strapless bra in small band/large cup sizes, it works well. But it's not something I'd wear unless I really, really needed to for a given outfit.

    • Hi there,
      I am thinking of buying this bra and we wear a similar size (I'm 30dd/28e). Would you say this bra would fit a shallow shape?
      Thanks!

  3. Essentially a strapless, molded version of the "smoothing underwire balcony bra" @4530 which I love (see my review of a 30E size). Sizing notes: This band is tighter and these cups smaller than in the 4520. The 30E 4520 has a band too big for me, while this 4530 band is fine. The 4520 30E cups are a good fit, maybe a bit too small, while I had to go up to an F in this 4530 style. I suspect both of these are due to the strapless/multiway nature of this bra. It has a high center rise and is very covering, though doesn't come as high on ... the outside front of the bust as a "full coverage" bra would - it still works with some lower square necks. Support when strapless is not where near what a strapped bra provides, and I haven't yet worn it with the straps. I'm likely to wear it with the straps in a racerback / rear cross version soon, perhaps I will update the review.

    If you like the other Fantasie smoothing/basic models, this is likely the strapless/multiway bra for you. Just be sure to adjust band and cup size!

    30FF

    Didn't fit

    I have this bra in a 30F, and that size is a bit too small. I figured, hey, go up a size and it fixes all the problems, right? Wrong. The smaller size actually fit better! The cup way is too deep for me, and the shape is too closed off on top for my tall roots, which presents the wholly annoying problem of having quadboob AND cup wrinkling at the same time. What's weird is that the shape for 30F, just a size down, was a bit more open on top. The width and the bottom fit great, but the depth is just not right. Reviewers are ... right when they say the cup size runs large in this model.

    The band is very firm, with extra silicone grip on the band to keep the bra from slipping around. I also love that there are several attachment points for the hooks.

    The bra itself is very full coverage with a mega high gore. The wires stab me in the sternum and sit a bit on my breast tissue because I have close-set breasts.

    Overall this is an excellent bra, but it's just too deep.

    32F

    Didn't fit

    This bra has served me really well over the years. I have two of the same model and size.Although I have outgrown the cups (which do run a little large, I think,) I still use it because it looks okay under clothing. It stays in place well and give the breasts a nice shape, and though it is not as supportive on me as it used to be, it has definitely retained its original measurements and appearance really well.

    34F

    Didn't fit

    As a 34F, I could never find a strapless bra that actually fit. Enter my trip to Intimacy Chicago and this bra! It actually fits and holds my boobs up! When I tell my larger chested friends that yes, I have a strapless and yes, it fits, they don't believe it. The back of this bra is on the tighter side, which probably aids to the support. Although the center doesn't lie completely flat, I tried on a few sizes of this same style and it fit the best. My only complaint is that the molded cups make my breasts look separated from each other, but it's nothing too bad.

    Definitely not a good fit. Was fitted at a boutique, but I don't think they were attentive to my needs.

    Ugh I thought this was the perfect bra. I love how it looked and felt, until later in the day when my sternum started to hurt, guess the underwires are too high?

    Didn't fit

    I thrifted this bra, so I was going to keep it even if it was a little illfitting.

    The fit is just awful though. The cups are so big, wide, and tall. I would probably recommend sizing down in the cups.
