    This bra is EXTREMELY similar to the Panache Sculptresse Pure. It serves the exact same purpose, to invisibly give you a great shape under clothing. Even the fit is almost the same, right down to the cup size being just a teensy bit too small for my left boob. The only reasons I picked it over the Pure were entirely subjective. In fact, objectively speaking, the Pure is probably a better bra if for no other reason than that the felt lining on the band makes it really comfortable compared to basically every other bra I've ever tried in the seamless/smoothing category. BUT -- the Fantasie gave me ... -- and I emphasize ME -- a slightly better shape. Your mileage may vary, but on me, it gave me a perkier shape than the Pure, to the point where I had sexy (but not extreme) cleavage. That usually never happens on me since I'm so pendulous/wide set. It also stayed put better than the Pure during the most extreme part of my "testing" process, which was zipping up the back of my favorite clingy dress. The Pure slid around a bit and required readjustment after twisting myself into a pretzel; the Fantasie did not. (Part of this may be due to the smaller band size, but there is no possible way I would have fit into a 34FF in the Pure even if it had been available -- the 36F was PLENTY snug.) The Fantasie is ever-so-slightly prettier to look at than the Pure, with shiny fabric and a cute minimalist bow on the gore. Plus the "nude" color matches my light skin tone better on the Fantasie than on the Pure. (Obviously this won't be the case for everyone.) In the end, it was almost a coin-flip decision, but I went with the Fantasie. It was a better fit FOR ME this time around. But I would still wholeheartedly recommend the Pure to anyone, if you can find it in your size!

    Pros: Slightly cuter than the Pure and much more widely available while offering most of the same benefits. On me, gave a slightly better shape, as well ... but YMMV.

    Cons: Single-layer cup construction offers less nipple coverage/modesty than the Pure, doesn't have soft felt on the band like the Pure

    I tried this bra in a 32G and literally could not hook it on the loosest hook. So here it is in a 34FF - on the tightest hooks and still too loose. The cups are slightly too large but not as much so as the 32G was. This is certainly a comfortable bra but it's proving difficult to find the right size. I just remembered that the 32G was black and the 34FF is nude. So maybe there's a difference in the band due to color, as I've heard can happen.

    See my review of the 32G. What I'll say about the fit on this one is that it's much better for me at the moment (since i"m not digging tight bands). This band is adequately snug to do the job, but not as snug as the 32G. The cups on this one also fit pretty closely to those on the 32G.

    I feel that this bra would be very comfortable, if it fit me correctly. I'm still trying to figure out my proper size, so I can't fault the bra for that. This bra doesn't work for me for multiple reasons: the wires are too wide, the straps are too far apart, the cups are a bit too big, and the cups come up too high and cut into my armpits.
