I have tall roots and this is the first strapless I've tried that doesn't give me the dreaded cut-off quadboob effect. The cups run deep--I'm usually a 30FF but the cup depth fits great. However, the cups are a bit too narrow for me. I usually like a 5.8-6in width, but this is only 5.5. Because it's too narrow, the bra tends to slip down and not sit well on my inframammary fold.
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 sit a bit on my breast tissue because I have close-set breasts, but it's not uncomfortable. It's just... meh. I can feel it, but it doesn't bother me too much throughout the day.
Overall this is an excellent bra, but it's just a touch too narrow for me.
I'm normally a 30E or F. Most strapless bras I tried before ran small in the band and cups. This one runs just barely small in the band (the 32 fits on the tightest setting), but runs LARGE in the cups (it is way too big). The cups are very thinly padded material that creases when not filled properly. These are very full cups, definitely would peek out of the shirts I would want to wear a strapless bra with.

It's very, very full coverage on me, encasing the entire breast. Wire sits below IMF even though band is comfortably snug. Grippy silicone trim on band added to the full coverage style helps this to feel very secure. The fabric is plain and thick enough to make me not worry about nipple show-through; however, the fullness of the coverage makes me question how wearable this is with most dress styles, especially given my petite proportions elsewhere. Compared to the Fantasie Rebecca (2024) in a 30F, which fits me perfectly, for this style (4530) the band is similarly snug, the cups are very slightly larger, and the wires are much wider on me.
This is the only strapless bra I've ever had that felt like it could actually hold me up. Seriously, I can jump in this bra and I don't feel like it's going to slip down and fall off. It's a pretty substantial bra, but not uncomfortable. The silicone edging on the inside helps stop slippage. After a little bit of wear during the evening, it does relax and slide down a wee bit, but not enough to make me feel like I'm not secure or going to fall out. Actually, come to think of it, the cups may actually be a tad too small since I've grown a ...bit since I got it, because when I push the base up higher and try to get the center gore to sit up where it ought to be I start to get a little quad boob.
Shape wise it's okay, but I prefer my breasts a little more front and center, closer together, as opposed to flattened and widened a bit. Other things I like are that it's a smooth cup, it does have the option of using straps, and it has two options for where you attach the straps in the back. It's not perfect, but it's the best strapless I've ever worn. Read more 103 more words
I'm pleasantly surprised by how well this works for me. I have to wear an extender with it, possibly due to a combination of the cups being too small, the band being firm, and my ribcage being closer to 36" than 34" these days. I don't spill out of it, but the wires float from my ribcage, which as far as I can tell doesn't compromise support, but it digs into my tummy painfully when I slouch.
Wearing it all day today. I started the day in a thick tee shirt, so I was able to put on my old Evie straps with the bra, hooked into the ...inner set of holders, and it was great! I love that extra 20% of support provided. After a while, it go too warm for the tee shirt and I changed into a spaghetti strap tank top (which I usually only wear under other things) and removed the straps. Without the straps, this bra definitely falls under the weight of my boobs and does the diggy thing. I'm still impressed though.
Considering how this fits on me, I would really peg it as more of a 32-34H-J. Read more 85 more words
Black satin strapless with molded cups and a tiny bow in the center.
Most Fantasie brand bras are way too tall in the cups for me if the cup width fits. This is, also. According to the measurements and my fit issues, this seems more like a 32/34 GG/H in UK sizing to me. It is labeled 34G and is new without tags, so is not stretched out. I can place the 34G - Panache » Porcelain Moulded Strapless (3370) bra inside this one and there is extra room all around.
I bought it new without tags and without straps. The strap attachments seem ...narrow, so I'm sure any straps you have would work. There are 2 attachment spots in back for each side and 1 on each cup.
The cups are very molded and round. They stand up by themselves. My short boobs fit in the bottoms of the cups, but there is just way too much empty space on top for me to justify keeping this bra. They seemed set pretty close together, but at least 2 wire channels apart.
Two strips of that sticky stuff on each side along the tops of the band, but none on the bottom. I liked that. Sometimes strapless bras seem to pinch along the band because the top and bottom are both stuck with that sticky stuff.
Band was snug on me, but fastenable. Cups distorted slightly when band was pulled. I measured the stretched band with as little distortion as I could.
Simple, adequate strapless bra. Also comfortable with the straps, though they are a little too far apart for my frame. Without straps my boobs aren't quite as pretty and perky as with my normal bras. The plastic thingies to keep the bra from sliding are a little uncomfortable, but they do their job, and I expect this behaviour from a strong and tight strapless bra.
Fits well enough for me to wear a strapless! I haven't worn one in years because of breast size but this one is just a tiny bit too small I feel... I need a strap extender for the clasp and I might wear it more but overall it's gonna get the job done.
This was a desperation bra to give my shoulder a break. My Wacoal strapless is kind of a joke, way too small in the cup. It's hard (impossible) to find a perfect strapless bra when your boobs swing low....
