    Band is fits firmly on loosest hooks. Underwires are not uncomfortable, and sit right where they should. The center gore fit is amazing, it sits right where it should and the separation seems just about perfect. The cups fit pretty well, I get a tiny bit of wrinkling at the top or just a wisp or overspill (depending on the time of month), but overall it's good, and I'm positive this is the best size for me.

    View from the front is a tiny bit wider than I like, but not bad. Profile view is nice and rounded, and actually fairly lifted as well. Unfortunately the cups are not ... lined, so there is no protection for show-through...but that's what DIMRS are for! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />

    Straps are placed too far apart, which is a common problem for me. While not ideal, using a strap accessory in the back stops strap slippage. It's worth noting that I often have a problem with straps/the side of cups cutting into my armpit, but this is not a problem at all with this bra.

    This has become my go-to bra for days when I need a tan/nude bra. It's not my favorite in my drawer (I prefer molded or foam cups), but I'm very glad to have it.

    This is my absolute favourite every day bra.

    It's non padded. Unfortunately it gets mixed up with the Fantasie Moulded TShirt bra because when you look at photos the two look identical!

    I find this bra is so comfortable all day. The band is very stretchy but very firm. I often switch between a 28 or 30 band when I go from one style to the next but in this one the 30 is perfect - on any hook. It never constrains my breathing. And no wires or seams dig into my flesh throughout the day.

    I have round boobs that are soft and fleshy at the center of my ... chest. This bra separates the boobs at the center gore but doesn't push my boobs out under my armpits (I get this affect easily since I have a narrow chest and closely centered breasts on that chest). In fact the shape of the T-Shirt version pushes my nipples outwards unnaturally.

    The straps are super stretchy and comfortable. This bra is no frills but it's very smooth and comfortable on the body.

    The only downside is that the top of the cup is nearly impossible to fit into perfectly. In a size up it wrinkles with the elastic laying flat but the fabric not, and in this size (my best Fantasie size) the fabric is smooth but the elastic digs in just a tiny bit.

    I've had this bra in several sizes for the last 5 years or so. They stand up to normal machine washing really well. After a few years the elastic starts to pill and warp from wear. The rest of the bra looks no different. It's a work horse. And it's comfortable.

    My favourite.

    I found this bra 10 years ago, and have worn this model almost every day since then. It gives a perfectly round but still natural shape to my breasts, which I feel like works well due to my very soft tissue. I still love this bra, but I have to start out wearing it on the tightest hook and it quickly becomes too loose because I really need a 28 band, which Fantasie doesn't make. My only other issue is my breasts vacillate between a 30FF and 30G, and are often squarely in the middle, with slight quading in the 30FF and extra space in the 30G.

    I like this bra, but I really need to wear a different size in it. The band is almost right, because it seems to be a bit looser than the other size 30 bands I have tried, but the cups are too big; I can make them almost not wrinkle if I pull the straps tight enough and make it look like a full coverage bra, but that's obviously not how it's intended to be worn.

    • It sounds to me like you need to go down a cup size. Fantasie is a UK brand and I have found that I need to go down a cup size with them to not wrinkle. For reference, I wear a 36FF of this that does not wrinkle, but the 36G did.

    I ordered this in my band size (30) and three different cup sizes (F, FF, G). My usual cup size is G, but like others have mentioned, there was a lot of wrinkling at the top. The FF seemed to fit the best, but there was still some wrinkling at the top while the underwire didn't caress my intramammary fold. The F was certainly too small. The band was firm and the gore tacked perfectly, but the high apex of the gore dug into my sternum so that after an hour it had left a painful red imprint.

    This is a bizarre bra--how could the designers have invented something so unsuited to the human breast without realising it? Needless to say, they're all going back.

    The most comfortable straps I've ever experienced: wide and plush. The design is minimalistic and adornment-free which appeals to me. However, the cup is too narrow. I simultaneously quad and have wrinkles in the top of the cup. Finally, I don't fill the cup near the wire. If it were wider, the fit might be nearly perfect because the cup height is lower than most. Sincere appreciation to klilly3 for giving away her trusted Fantasie!!!

    LOVE this bra, I could wear it everyday. Makes my boobs look perky and round, and no spillage. Wish it came in other colors!

    Fits

    Acceptable fit. Band at the tight end of bearable. Center panel tacks firmly, and underwires are just big enough to encapsulate root. Wrinkling at top of cup on smaller side. Comfortable, with firm support.
    Very smooth under knit tops. Thin fabric will show nipple.
    Strongly east-west shape (breasts bumping into upper arms), with minimal forward projection and vertical height. Doesn’t look strange or unnatural, but not a look I prefer.

    Nude colorway

    I was still figuring out my size when I got this. If you are still figuring out your size, stay away from moulded cups. It is much harder to se how it fits.

    • ptdaisy, I think you've got the wrong listing here. This bra seems to be a 30FF not a 30F; your measurements are very different from the other 2 measurements for a 30F Fantasie 4520. Also the other sizes you listed for different countries mention 30FF as well, so I think that might've been a typo!

    • Thanks for bringing this up. I just went ahead and fixed the entry so this is now filed under a 30FF

    If I was told I could only own one bra for the rest of my life, I would have to choose this one.

    It is so comfortable, and so practical. I can wear it under almost anything, it is soft and smooth, the shape it gives is perfectly round and lifted, and there is something very pretty about it's simplicity- the beige fabric has a slight sheen, and the only embellishment is a tiny ribbon made of the same material as the rest of the bra.

    My one and only complaint is that the band is too stretchy- in non-Freya/Fantasie I'm a 32 band. I have this in a 30 band, and I can easily close it on the tightest hook (though I choose not to for now).

    Nevertheless, I'm sure I will be buying another one of these once this one wears out (which unfortunately will be sooner than it should).
